5 In Flight Skincare Essentials

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been on hiatus for the past few days. I have been back on the east coast enjoying some time with friends and family. I hope you're all enjoying these dog days of summer!

As I prepare for my travels back to the west coast today, I thought I'd share with you a new branch of moveovergwyneth - #MOGBLOGTravels. Taking a leaf out of beloved goop's book, i'll be sharing city guides, tips n tricks, travel essentials and more! Starting today with my 5 In-Flight Skincare Essentials. Check 'em out below:

Dermalogica Multivitamin Recovery Mask This near-invisible formula is loaded with vitamins and nutrients for soothing and protecting your skin from the barrage of dry air and germs that inevitably go hand in hand with plane travel. Smooth some on at the beginning of your flight and let it soak in as you relax.

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour Cream The beloved beauty editor favorite is famous for a reason - its multi-use formula is perfect for locking in moisture everywhere from hands and cuticles, to lips, eyelids and more! 

Kiehls In Flight Travel Spray You know that stale, icky feeling that comes from recycled air being continuously pumped at you on a long flight? Kiss it goodbye with a good spritz or two of this refreshing moisturizing spray by Kiehls.

Kiehls Eye Depuffer Speaking of Kiehls, they really have the travel essentials down! Bid farewell to tired eyes with a quick swipe of this caffeine-infused balm. The cooling sensation and tightening properties in the caffeine will have weary eyes looking fresh for landing. 

Malin+Goetz Moisturizing Lip Balm Of course, no skincare product list is complete without a lip formula! M+G have the perfect no-nonsense moisturizer for keeping lips plumped and hydrated, rather than thin and chapped. 

So, do you have any of these already? Thinking of picking any up for your next flight? Or maybe there's something we missed?? Let me know in the comments below, as always, love to hear from you guys!

The Best Sunscreen for Your Face

Hey everyone! I hope your weeks are all off to a good start. Though doesn't it feel like it should be Thursday already? Isn't that always the case when you're counting down to a long weekend?? Only 3 days til Friday, y'all! 

For part 2 in our summer kickoff series, I wanted to share with you my absolute favorite facial sunscreen. Now, if you've been living under a rock, or didn't already know, you should be wearing spf every day. But with the holiday weekend coming up, you're sure to spend a lot of time in the sun - and for many of us, this will be the first real sun exposure we've had in months! (Not those of us in LA, mind you. But I didn't want to make you jealous.)

Enter Kiehl's Superfluid Sunscreen. This little beauty packs an SPF of 50+ and feels silky smooth going onto your face. It's fast-absorbing, and doesn't leave that sticky, tacky feel that other sunscreens tend to do. I wear it daily, but put on a little more when I know I'm spending a day in the sun. Give it a try this weekend, and I know I'll make a believer out of you! 

As always, check back every day this week for some new and exciting ways to start your summer off right, and we'll see you tomorrow with the next installment in our Summer Kickoff Series

Skincare Review: Kiehl's

Good morning, everyone! How are you all adjusting to this week? I'm still getting into the swing of things, myself. And whenever I feel restless in a weary world, I turn to skincare. Recently, I found myself in desperate need to stock up on the basics... so I headed to Kiehl's.

Lucky for me, from now until March 23rd, Kiehl's is running a promotion: 4 Deluxe Samples for any $65 purchase. (Unlucky for me, my night cream alone costs $62...but thats a different story.)

Let me tell you. These samples are worth it. See below for a review on each, with links for purchase. And, as always, don't forget to Subscribe to #MOGBLOG - if you aren't yet, you'll want to. Trust me. Big announcement coming this week!

Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate This stuff is the real deal. Loaded with 10.5% Vitamin C concentrate, you can actually feel it working on your skin. (Its a slight warming sensation, which I find pleasant. Just don't say I didn't warn you.)

Midnight Recovery Concentrate Let me take this time to note that I realize that most of the things on this list are anti-aging, but hey! I'm all about preventative, rather than reactive, skincare. Amirite?? Anyway. This serum is a sheer oil formula that smells heavenly and makes your skin feel like a dream.

Super Multi-Corrective Cream This rich, luxurious cream is actually what I use on my skin nightly. Its blend of ingredients is formulated to increase fullness, fight loss of elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. What's not to love?

Ultra Facial Cleanser Another product that I use on the daily. Just a really nice face cleanser - perfect if you have combination skin like me. Other cleansers leave me too oily or too dry, but this one is like Goldilocks - just right.

*BONUS* In-Flight Refreshing Facial Mist Okay, so this one wasn't a free sample, but I couldn't post a review on Kiehl's without writing about this. This is like the fountain of youth in a spray bottle. Designed to be a skin refresher mid-flight (which I've certainly used on that long cross-country flight home) I use it every day, throughout the day. Perfect when your skin is feeling dry, dull, oily, shiny, lackluster or just plain blah - basically, it'll cure what ails ya. It leaves your skin with a healthy, dewy finish. And, it smells incredible.

So thats it! Let me know if you get the chance to give any of these products a try. I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
