Packing List: Morocco Marvels

image

Morocco has been on my travel bucket list for ages, and I finally pulled the trigger this year by planning a 10-day trip to the medieval city of Fes, the small town of Ouirgane in the Atlas Mountains, and the bustling hubbub of Marrakech. Between the souks, the tagines, and the architecture, I have a feeling Morocco and I will get along famously. Here’s what I’m bringing when I hop on a plane tomorrow:

1. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ Alpha Beta® Glow Pad

I never go a day without SPF, but that doesn’t mean I want to look like a ghost. These pads from Dr. Gross will give me the hint of a tan, minus the sun damage. 

2. Supergoop!® Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream

Packing List: Hawaiian Island Vacay

I wouldn’t trade New York for any other city, but right about this time of year I start to miss the ocean like whoa. I’m headed to Hawaii this week to visit family and get my fix of palm trees, sand, and spam musubi. (Not kidding—don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.) Here’s what I’m packing for my tropical escape. 

1. La Fresh Oil-Free Face Cleanser: I’m a big proponent of face wipes, both at work (key when product-testing) and when traveling. These hydrating wipes have both aloe vera and vitamin E—they’ll come in handy on the 12-hour flight as well as any beach adventures.
