Still squeezing essentials into tiny bottles or relying on iffy hotel amenities? Try beauty with travel in mind + 15% off.



Fabulous, effective eco-skincare
is hard enough to find. Fabulous, effective, travel-ready eco-skincare?
Downright impossible. Rather than trying to squeeze your favorite
products into travel-size bottles and jars or relying on iffy hotel
amenities during your next trip, pick up one of these travel-ready wonders that make packing easier than online-booking a nonrefundable flight to Sardinia after downing a bottle of Chianti.

Skip the months-long waiting list for West-Palm-Beach-based celebrity esthetician Tammy Fender and instead treat yourself to her signature Tammy Fender Travel Kit. Customize your kit with your choice of organic cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and body oil or lotion
(we’re mad for the Rose, Geranium and Tangerine scent combo). The
travel collection also includes Tammy’s anti-aging Quintessential Serum
and famous Epi-Peel, all packaged in a safe-for-suitcases jewel-box

Like most disposable paper products, disposable facial cleansing
cloths have always been a temptingly convenient, big, fat,
eco-no-no—until now. Kaia’s
100-percet-biodegradable Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths are a
brilliant, quick-cleansing solution infused with citrus essential oils,
organic honey, sunflower seed oil, oat amino acids and fatty alcohol
that won’t dry skin.
We only needed one cashmere-soft cloth to remove all traces of makeup
and grime, even without a rinse. Plus, the recyclable container snaps
shut to keep cloths moist, portable and ready for use in flight.

Changes in water, air quality and climate while traveling often
leave us with hair days so bad we’re tempted to delete the vacation
snaps. But Yarok’s
travel-sized Green with Envy Shampoo and Conditioner make shiny, happy
hair perfectly portable. Formulated with restorative organic and
wildcrafted ingredients and without chemical preservatives or synthetic
fragrances, this dynamic duo left our hair smelling crazy-good and
looking pampered enough to preserve a whole trip’s worth of
frame-worthy photos.

No, it’s not technically beauty, but who wants to travel with unwashed unmentionables?
The savvy travelers we know stow disposable packets of eco-detergent in
their carry-ons. Free of perfumes and dyes, completely biodegradeable
and phosphate-free, Soak Minis let you hand-wash everything from lingerie to cashmere to that teeny-weeny bikini you’re packing for warmer climes.

Bon voyage, baby!

Spirit Demerson is the President and Founder of Spirit Beauty Lounge,
an online boutique specializing in luxury organic beauty and
eco-lifestyle products. A recovering product junkie, eco-activist,
former model and beauty school
dropout turned “eco-preneur,” Spirit has spent over a decade searching
for effective organic beauty products. Frustrated by the
less-than-luxurious selection available at natural foods markets and
misleading labels at department stores and drugstores, she sharpened
her expertise, spending hours obsessively researching ingredients,
often mixing up batches of lotions and potions in her kitchen or
importing products and ingredients from around the world to treat the
skin conditions of friends and family. In 2007, Spirit began hosting
and producing elite Organic Spa Parties in New York City and San
Francisco with organic facials, pedicures and cocktails to promote the
green and glamorous life. Her Spirit Beauty Lounge webstore was
developed of bringing the Organic Spa Party home! Spirit and/or Spirit
Beauty Lounge have recently been featured in Natural Solutions, 944,
Boho, Family Circle, Vegetarian Times and Lucky magazines.
