St. Ives Cleansing Sticks
Fresh, clean and healthy. We all need that in our lives especially for travelling. We want ease of items when we pack. We want to be able to not worry about the little things. The little things that can suddenly make your travel adventure either a little bit problematic or a little bit easy. Let’s pick easy.
I want to share with you a new product by St. Ives that is a game-changer for travelers. It's easy to use, easy to buy, healthy and good for you and is priced very economically.
First off, everybody knows there are limits to what you can carry on board when it comes to toiletries and cosmetics. 3 oz. or less is the rule. These liquid items must fit in 1-quart size plastic baggie.
So how to get around that when you have either 1.) More liquid items to carry or 2.) Larger than 3 oz. items?
You can put extra or larger liquid items into your checked luggage. Ok, we know that.
What is the work around? This game-changer I mentioned?
Substitute solids for liquids where you can. Specifically, for face wash.
St. Ives now puts out a solid condensed stick weighing 1.59 oz. It swivels up to reveal a little at a time. It lathers up great to remove all the dirt, makeup, and grime. Even better is that this product is made with 100% coconut oil combined with other natural ingredients like honey, green tea, or cactus water. Three different formulas for different skin concerns such as dry, oily, or normal.
They smell great too! Refreshing to use after a workout or a long flight. Everyone could always use a little pick-me-up aromatherapy. My favorite is the Cactus Water & Hibiscus. Not too heavy of a scent either.
Now when you travel by plane you sometimes might worry about what happens to liquid items when you land. The up and down pressurization in the plane can lead to leakage if a liquid item’s cap wasn’t tightened enough before you left. What a mess to find when you check into your hotel and start to unpack, discovering a baggy mess of glop! Not to mention the waste and then you have to buy something else to replace the lost liquid or use the standard hotel hand soap which just might be too harsh for your facial skin.
Enter St. Ives solid cleansing stick and you won’t have that problem again – at least when it comes to your liquid facial cleanser. Pack it with your solid deodorant and you’re good to go!

Julep is #bravepretty
I’m always on the lookout for travel-size cosmetics and toiletries to take with me in my travels.
So, when I get excited about something new I find, I want to share it with you in the hopes you can see its value too!
I’m going to focus this article specifically on Julep cosmetics which is pretty amazing.
It's a totally customizable beauty subscription that sends you a box of full-size beauty products every month. It’s not just nail polish either, although they have some of the coolest, prettiest nail polish around in a wonderful small rectangular shape that works size-wise for travel.
Here’s a photo of some of the nail polish I got in last month’s Beauty Box that I posted on my Instagram account.
You have a choice of two subscription options. My Maven gives you $40 worth of products for $24.99 month or $19.99 for the first 3 months if you prepay it in advance. Your Beauty Box is customizable each month. You get an email notice by the 20th, get 4 days to change it out, or decline it, and then by the 27th the Beauty Box edit closes and its shipped out to you.
The other choice you have is the Maven Luxe which gives you $60 worth of products for $39.99 month or $34.99 if you prepay it in advance.
Either way you get a lot of usable goodies at a discounted price.
Plus, when you go to edit your box you get additional items to choose from all on special deals.
There is also a point-earning awards system called Jules which ends up saving you more money by getting free products! Woo hoo!
