We’re poised to do a fair bit of traveling over the next few months to keep up with a jet-setting significant other, so www.3floz.com has become one of our favorite Web destinations of late. (Don’t worry, our laptop will be clearing security with us, so Beauty Counter will be going global.) To keep us properly addicted to its revolving cast of miniature, TSA-approved beauty essentials from brands like Jonathan Product, Pangea Organics, and Dr. Hauschka, site creators Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz have recently added customized kits to their offerings. The six collections include standouts like the Urban Traveler, a set of face towelettes, sanitizers, a mini body lotion, and a lip balm; the Gym Kit, which boasts a dry shampoo, a refreshing mint-scented body wash, and an herbal deodorant; and Duff’s own picks like Philip B Avocado & Peppermint Shampoo and Lightweight Conditioner, Ole Henriksen’s Walnut Scrub (exfoliating is a must to boost skin cell renewal while you’re on the move), and Dr. Hauschka lip balm, an all-natural in-flight savior. Look out for an After Sun and Sun kit as well, which launch in two weeks—just in time for Coachella and the beginning of the summer festival season.
File this under ideas you’ve had but never acted on. The totally genius concept of a stand-alone store devoted to your favorite, TSA-friendly beauty products will finally become a reality when Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz launch 3floz.com this week. As suggested by its URL name, the site only carries products that are 3.4 oz or smaller from an assortment of 30 brands that offer quality skincare basics. (Makeup and fragrance will reportedly be added to the list of offerings down the line.) Choose from Dr. Hauschka face creams, Jonathan Product shampoo and conditioners, and a host of body salves from Pangea Organics to properly primp out your next air travel experience. Even if you’re not taking to the skies anytime soon, the smaller bottles (and smaller price tags) offer a chance to try certain brands you’ve always been curious about, but maybe not curious enough to shell out for the full size.

With the recession still looming large, inflated spa prices make the idea of getting monthly facials and massage treatments not just unlikely but slightly ludicrous. Add to this the hassle of making appointments (and showing up on time), and it’s not a shock that the persistent tension in your back has gone unattended, your pores unextracted, for quite some time. But if these luxuries were more affordable and easier to procure, you’d get an impromptu rubdown après work without thinking about it twice, right? That’s what Red Door Spa Holdings is banking on with its new Simply Face & Body spa boutique concept. Like Facelogic and Massage Envy before it, the idea is to provide guests with reasonably priced, walk-in spa options and a tranquil environment—without the uppity attitude typically associated with such frivolities. Initial treatments are a mere $49, and unlike its predecessors, waxing, facials, and massages are on the menu at Simply Face & Body. There is also a membership option so that you can factor “me time” into your schedule—and your budget—on the regular ($59 a month gets you one free service that rolls over if it goes unused, plus unlimited additional services at the introductory $49 price). Add to this a roster of only organic products from Juice Beauty and Pangea Organics and we’re guessing your interest is piqued. The one downside is that while additional nationwide venues are reportedly in the works, the premiere location is in Ramsey, New Jersey, which is 45 minutes north of Manhattan and about 29 miles too far to lure the city crowd. But we gather that’s somewhat intentional. For more information or to book an appointment, call (877) 57-SIMPLY.
