Why I love it: LEBON is an eco-friendly brand known for ethical and natural ingredients, as well as deliciously perfumed notes from Grasse, France. The flavors initially surprised me, but I quickly fell in love with LEBON’s unique touches. Plus, the trio-set manages to give a choice of flavor while keeping your case light and travel-friendly.
Kosas Tinted Face Oil
What it does: Turns your skincare into makeup! Six active botanical oils work together to even skin tone, reduce appearance of pores, and erase imperfections. Best of all? It’s 100% vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free.
Why I love it: I love being quick and carefree with my makeup, and this product allows me to do just that. I apply it as I would a serum or moisturizer, and I can even control the amount of coverage I want! Plus, the slim packaging fits effortlessly into any makeup bag for quick touch-ups on the go.
MALIN+GOETZ Essentials Kit
What it does: Six travel-size versions of the brand’s bestselling face, hair, and body products, conveniently tucked away in a chic, transparent pouch.
Why I love it: I don’t have to think twice about toiletries when I pack the Essentials Kit! I can just throw the kit into my carry-on and have all that I need at my fingertips: a facial cleanser, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, face moisturizer, and body moisturizer.
