Travel and Skin Care Made Easy: Lisa Hoffman's Seven Day KitThursday, August 07, 2008
Travel wears me out. Actually, packing wears me out. I never know how much stuff to bring. I try to pare down my routine, but then I get to my destination and want all of my normal treament products. It really drives me crazy to not be able to use my eye cream or have an anti-aging product. So, then I end up bringing all of my products. In their full size. Which means I have to check my bag and I'm on the verge of paying overweight fees!
No one understands this better than Lisa Hoffman. Yes, she's married to Dustin. They decided when they married that they'd spend more time together, meaning Lisa travelled to locations with Dustin. A lot of travel thrown in with Hollywood beauty expectations (she really had to bring all of her skin care) means she had my problems but multiplied a hundred fold. A few years ago she had this amazing idea- create a skin care line with all of your products in individual packets, easy to travel with!
Last week I went out of town, we stayed at my parent's home and 2 different hotels during this trip. That meant a lot of moving around, so I wanted to pare down even more than usual. So, I brought a Lisa Hoffman Seven Day Kit with me.
This really cool packet has 10 little ampules, 5 for day and 5 for night. Each ampule is resealable and contains enough product for a week. Pretty much every product that you need is in this packet including cleanser, anti-aging treatment, eye cream, lip products and sunscreen. After using the products for a week I can definitely say I love them. The cleansers work well enough to remove my eye makeup even, rinse off easily and don't leave my skin overly dry or tight. The moisturizers sink in completely easily and create a great base for makeup.
The products were all formulated by the same genius behind M Lab, which is another line that I love. Glancing at the ingredient list for these products you'll see anti-oxidants such as BVOSC (the most stable form of Vitamin C), peptides like Matrixyl 3000 and Dermaxyl and even a retinoid, Retinyl Palmitate.
This is a great option for travel. The ampules are meant to last a day, though there really is enough in there for a few days. You can buy one kit or seven at a time, which come together in a little linen bag.
