Monday was great product for the almost vegetarian face. Yesterday, lovely items for the almost vegetarian hair. And today? Today it is goodies for the almost vegetarian traveler.
Because it is summer, after all!
I've taken Dr. Hauschka travel kits with me on two trips now, one this past winter and one this spring. And they never let me down.
First, I took a face kit. The daily face care kit for normal, dry or sensitive skin has trial sizes of everything you need from their Cleansing Cream and Milk to Facial Toner, Moisturizing Day Cream, Rose Day Cream, and Quince Day Cream, all packaged in a convenient tin and all soothing enough to deal with travel-dried skin. Now, if you plan to put this in your carry-on, airline regulations, as of the date of this post, insist you take the items out of the tin and plop them into a one quart plastic bag. But if you check them, you can leave them in the tin and not worry too much about them getting squished.
Second, I took the daily body care kit. Designed for all skin conditions, you've got your soap-free Blackthorn and Rose Body Washes, Lavender Bath, Quince and Rose Body Moisturizers, and Blackthorn and Rose Body Oils. My special treat in this collection is the blackthorn body oil which makes the skin creamy soft.
Now, in both kits, I bet you are thinking, that is a lot of moisturizers. And it is. But I find that travel is pretty drying, so I am grateful to have all the moisturizers I can get.
Dr. Hauschka isn't very expensive, but some of the organic lines are. So it is nice to find one that is especially inexpensive, making it ideal for the budget wallet. And that's where Burt's Bees really shines. Because you can get some decent items without breaking the bank.
Like the Radiance Kit Glow kit.
These products use Royal Jelly because it is so nourishing (good to have when traveling). The kit contains a Mini Exfoliating Body Bar, Exfoliating Body Wash, Mini Body Lotion, Day Creme, Night Creme, Eye Creme, Full Size Lip Shimmer. The advantage here, too, is that you get to try the line without buying all the products individually, thus saving you, millions, I assume!
While they have plenty of kits, another good one for travel is the Head to Toe Starter Kit (and what a great way to really get a feel for tons of Burt's Bees products in one go). This one has lots of items including Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme and Coconut Foot Creme (both smell good enough to eat), Hand Salve, Beeswax & Banana Hand Creme, Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme, Peppermint Shower Soap, Citrus Spice Exfoliating Shower Soap, Orange Essence Facial Cleanser, Vitamin E Body and Bath Oil, Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion, Peppermint Foot Lotion, Honey Lip Balm. Between the two kits, you should have plenty of product to cover a nice, little vacation, with a few items to spare.
Next, I've got a special treat: Healthy nail polish
Yep, nail polish without all those nasty nail polish chemicals and in gorgeous colors. Don't believe me? Then stay tuned.
