When news spread that 3FLOZ, the genius purveyor of TSA-friendly beauty products, was readying to launch kiosks at airports this year, I instantly did a happy dance. After all, the company is a favorite of many, including Birchbox. While I thought that we’d have to wait until the end of the year before the self-service machines were unveiled, my friends at Air Repair have revealed that they’re coming out in just a few weeks!
I love New York 364 days of the year. The one day that I can’t stand being in the city? New Year’s Eve. This year, I’m escaping to sunny Los Angeles, where I have absolutely nothing planned, save for a trip to Flore Vegan for my new favorite salad and some quality time at the Silverlake Farmer’s Market. Here’s what I’m bringing for my low-key trip.
Nuxe Multi-Use Dry Oil with Golden Shimmer: My arms and legs are looking preeetty pasty these days, which is fine when you’re all bundled up in NYC, but not fine when you’re in palm tree land. This silky oil takes care of dryness instantly and gives skin a subtle sheen.
BY Terry Hyaluronic Face Glow: Lately, I’ve been skipping foundation in favor of this hydrating tinted primer. It has hyaluronic acid, one of my favorite skincare ingredients (it loads up your skin with moisture!), and light-reflecting particles that give your face a diffused glow. Oh yeah, and it smells amazing, too.
