What to Tuck Away in Your Go Bag

by Debra Bokur

May 15, 2017

Thankfully, a growing number of companies are becoming hip to the challenges faced by frequent travelers in the never-ending quest for top-quality, TSA-friendly personal care products. A few to try on your next trek:

  • The new Travelux Skincare Set Travel Duo from SASE includes luxurious multitasking products that might even leave a little extra room in your bag. Boasting flyer-friendly packaging in small sizes, the Hydra-Purifying Cleanser 3-in-1 cleanses, exfoliates and acts as a hydrating mask, while the Advanced Hydra-Illuminating Skin Therapy 4-in-1 moisturizes and acts as a rich serum, eye cream and neck cream. Both products are built with antioxidants, peptides, skin-nourishing oils and probiotics.Lancôme
  • Lancôme adds a touch of luxury with great travel-sized makeup bag essentials: mini-sized Hypnose Drama Mascara for that night at the opera, and Bi-Facial Double Action Eye Makeup Remover to take it off when you’re back in your penthouse suite. Other choices in perfectly proportioned sizes include La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer Smoothing Effect with light diffusing action and proprietary Elasto-Smooth technology.
  • Created by leading physicians in stem cell science at Rescue Skin’s high-tech California laboratory, individual packets that slip easily into your TSA-mandated personal care bag address a host of issues including windburn, puffiness, dry skin, thinning skin, redness and dark spots. Each single-use packet delivers up one serving of rich Serum Concentrate and one Ultra Moisturizer designed for preventative and regenerative skin care.
  • With an eco-friendly “farm to farmacy” philosophy that utilizes healing organic herbs and pure essential oils, and skips aluminum, Propanediol, propylene glycol and artificial ingredients, the small, easily-packable tins in the First Aid Travel Pack from Green Goo by Sierra Sage come in blends such as Pain Relief (with arnica for sprains, sore muscles, bruises and joint pain); Dry Skin (with calendula flower for cracked skin, rashes, eczema and psoriasis); First Aid (with olive oil and a proprietary herbal blend for scrapes, insect bites, rashes, sunburn and poison ivy); and Skin Repair (with aloe vera and vitamin E for puffy eyes, minor burns and after-sun care).

Israel Tourism’s Huge 2019

Israel is experiencing a record-breaking year for tourism, and is adding the infrastructure to prove it.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.

Blissfully Adrift

FOR THOSE OF US PASSIONATE about wellness pursuits and who feel most at peace close to the sea, there’s nothing quite like the synergy offered by a floating spa integrated into the setting of a luxurious cruise ship. I’m sailing through the Mediterranean from Rome to Barcelona, discovering along the way that the Crystal Life Spa & Beauty Salon on board the Crystal Serenity provides not only the element of high-end indulgence but also the cruise line’s signature commitment to attention and service.
