Products designed to make travel lighter, easier, more convenient, less stressful. Plus other items we like that we think you might find interesting and/or useful.   



New Breathable, Humidity-Resistant  Foundation
Great for Travelers  

Beverly Hills-based Oxygenetix has introduced Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation, a new breathable foundation that is great for travelers because it not only covers the skin but simultaneously helps heal such skin issues as rashes, dry skin, acne scars and rosacea.  The foundation also offers SPF25 UVA/UVB protection, doesn’t rub off on clothing, doesn’t clog pores, is oil and fragrance-free, is hypoallergenic and non-irritating to sensitive skin, and contains no dyes or parabens. 

The super light foundation uses an oxygen complex called CeravitaeTM to stimulate cell production and connective tissue growth in aging, wounded and normal skin. The formula is not water-based like most foundations - that often attract bacteria to the skin - but is Aloe Barbadensis gel-based and provides anti-bacterial qualities, protects compromised skin, while astringently removing dead surface cells. Another bonus for active travelers,  it is humidity resistant so one can swim, dance, jog and workout and the foundation will not come off no matter how hot or humid it is outside. It's also water-resistant for up to 90 minutes of swimming.  More info on Oxygenetix

New from Multiwear  

The multi-functional Cardimom® is the latest product from California-based Multiwear. It can be worn as a cardigan and then flipped over the head to convert to a poncho. In weather that goes from blustery to balmy, it’s a great accessory to take with you when you travel. The weight of the sweater is not only for cool weather, but it’s a great cover up for temperate weather. You can even use the front panel as a hood, and the shrug collar acts as a great built-in scarf on chilly days. 

It can be dressed up to be work with a little black dress, or go over a pair of skinny jeans or yoga pants. It’s a great coverup for your workout outfit as well.

The Cardimom comes in a 100% cotton knit or jersey knit material, plus with long sleeves or sleeveless to wear as a vest or tank top. ­

A favourite of yoga and Pilates enthusiasts lovers, the Cardimom is also good for nursing moms on the go, as the flowy front can be a nursing cover.

Aqua Vitale Serum 24

We all know that travel can be dehydrating.  Enter Aqua-Vitale Serum 24 - a new product by Swissline billed as "hydrotherapy in a bottle."

A refreshingly light tonic, Agua Vitale Serum 24 boasts 24 different nutrients and antioxidants that really do make the skin feel instantly refreshed.

One of the key water binding agents is Salicornia, a botanical extract that delivers a new way to hydrate the skin. It has recently been shown to inhibit urea loss and increase urea content in the epidermis

Two other things we like about the product? It's not greasy and it can be used under any moisturizer for an instant boost. Aqua Vitale Serum 24 is the latest addition to Swiss Line's Force Vitale, a botanical anti-aging collection inspired by the Alpine ecosystem.   More info and how to order Aqua Vitale
