Before you pack up and roll out to the beach or a barbecue, we suggest including these TSA-friendly essentials in your carry-on. From body oil to bikini wax strips, these pint-sized picks have you covered from head to toe.
Kahina Giving Beauty Glow Box
Inspired by Moroccan hammams, use the Rosemary Lavender Argan Soap to exfoliate dry patches; Fez Body Serum to add shine to limbs; and Argan Oil to soothe dry summer skin and tame frizz in a pinch.
Chanel Le Jour, La Nuit, Le Weekend
No need to pack multiple lotions and potions—this simple and sleek trio will effectively “resynchronize” your complexion via a day, night, and weekend cream that are purposely designed to play well together. Come back home feeling relaxed and looking refreshed.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Travel Set
Sand is like glitter: It lingers long after the party is over. This scaled-down set comprised of Surf Foam Shampoo, Surf Crème Conditioner, and cult-favorite Surf Spray imparts breezy texture and wind-tousled waves—minus the mess.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Globe Trotter Golden Travel Spray Case
It’s safe to say that notable nose Francis Kurkdjian knows a thing or two about traveling—he circled the globe four times last year alone. To carry your fragrance safely from one country to another, he developed this refillable travel spray. Rousing your senses post-red-eye has never looked chicer.
Completely Bare Wax on the Go-Go
If your hotel room doesn’t boast a microwave, don’t sweat it. These heat- and mess-free wax strips are the perfect way to touch up your bikini line or upper lip before hitting the beach. Even better: A small bottle of Don’t Grow There hair inhibitor cream helps prevent ingrowns and slows down stubble.
Hannah Bronfman and business partner Annie Evans already developed an app (in conjunction with Peter Hananel) dubbed Beautified to help the time-pressed book same-day services (like a pedicure, massage, blow-out, or Brazilian) at “influencer- and editor-approved” salons and spas. In other words, it’s like Open Table for perpetual primping procrastinators like myself. Their latest project, however, is less digitally dependent and more down to earth. Partnering with Net-a-Porter, the cofounders created a TSA-friendly kit complete with their all-natural beauty favorites. Included in the custom canvas pouch: a Beautified VIP card (i.e., $25 off your next service booked through the app); Ilia Multistick in Sway (a bronzy hue); Rahua Volume Spray; Tata Harper Body Lotion and Body Oil; Joya Composition No. 1 roll-on perfume; LAFCO hand lotion; and RGB nail polish (in an exclusive mauve shade called Beautified), cuticle oil, and remover pad.
When asked why the duo went the natural route for their first tangible collaboration, Bronfman said, “Our friends are starting to have babies, and when you become pregnant, I think that’s when women really start to think about the products they’re putting on their bodies. So I think a lot of our friends have influenced us.” And for those who are less concerned about taking a holistic approach and just want to look radiant and frizz-free, Bronfman assured me that “everything is going to be especially great for the beach.” It’s a good thing, seeing as the NYC-based DJ and girl-about-town is escaping to Muskoka (a lake town in rural Canada) and possibly taking a side trip to Mykonos this summer. For those of us who are visiting far less glamorous locales this holiday weekend (like a wedding in Portland…I’m not bitter about missing prime BBQ time or anything), consider this your beauty retreat in a bag.
Launching July 2, Natural Nomad Essentials Kit, $50; net-a-porter.com
Current exhibitions at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris and the Milan furniture fair are celebrating the legendary Orient Express, which is poised to hit the rails anew after a five-year hiatus. For Moynat artistic director Ramesh Nair, it’s a comeback on a silver platter. “I’m really passionate about a return to the experience of travel, the journey rather than the destination as an end in itself,” he said the other day in the house’s Rue Saint-Honoré headquarters. A longtime rail traveler, Nair believes that the only way to truly see India, for example, is by train. “I’m always looking to revisit the past, but in a modern way,” he remarked.
In that spirit, the French heritage leather house, which is owned by Bernard Arnault separately from LVMH, will be offering up some deep-luxury designs created with the Orient Express in mind. For starters, Nair has signed a custom vanity case similar to those favored by well-heeled travelers back in the luxury railroad line’s heyday. It took seven hundred hours to craft this one-of-a-kind piece. Even so, Nair declined to take all the credit. “It really came together over lunch with [Guerlain perfumer] Thierry Wasser,” he explained. “He’s a constant traveler, he picks up inspiration everywhere, and he immediately sensed that Shalimar would be a perfect match for the Orient Express.” Inside the buttery blue trunk: swing-out trays in apple tree wood—a material favored by sculptors for its polish and resilience—that reveal a cascade of Guerlain makeup and four Baccarat bottles of Shalimar nestled at the bottom. Minus the beauty stash, the valise would work just as well as a jewelry box or watchcase. Its price? Let’s just say if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.
Meanwhile, New York is about to get its own chance to check out Moynat’s wares: On April 24, “Le Trunk Show” will touch down on the ground floor of the Dover Street Market. Look for a breakfast trunk custom-designed for Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno, another designed to display Pierre Hermé’s macarons, and a retro bicycle mounted with a picnic trunk in lieu of a basic basket.
