Tips From CEO Amy: The Essentials In My Holiday Travel Bag

Holiday travel is upon us, and that means being ready with the essentials for whatever your day's adventures demand. From quick day trips to family vacations, these are the products I always have on hand. 

My skin can quickly become off-balance when I'm traveling to different points on the map, so I always stay diligent to my basic morning skin care routine – cleansing, brightening, sunscreen cocktailed with a little hemp oil, and moisturizer. Then, I throw in a few more of my Italian favorites that are perfect for my holiday plans.


The rich, bold color of Borghese's Darling Shine Infusion Lip Gloss is the only lip color I need during the holidays. The vivid raspberry color is locked in for extended wear, and conditions and hydrates with ingredients like aloe, Vitamin E, and castor seed oil.

My favorite fragrance on the go is Carthusia's A'Mmare Roll On Scented Oil. The 10ml bottle is a fantastic size for my purse or a carry-on, and gives me a scent of elegance no matter where I am. The aromatic, unisex fragrance is based on jojoba oil and vitamin E, giving me skincare benefits along with an unmistakable signature scent.


When I'm feeling tired from long days and colder weather, I always turn to Borghese's Restorative Eye Sheet Masks to give my eyes a well-rested and youthful look. They nourish, revitalize, and brighten - and come in a pack of six so they last my entire trip. (Pro tip: refrigerate them first for an even more luxurious and soothing experience). 
When I feel like like my skin needs a little more moisture, especially in the wintertime, I always turn to Skin & Co's Truffle Therapy Hydrating Facial Cream. It provides me with nourishing hydration, and has some of my favorite skincare ingredients - hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, antioxidants, and of course, Black Winter Truffle. On top of the skincare benefits, the 60 milliliter size still allows me to pack it into my carry-on suitcase.
On the subject of dry skin - during the busy holiday season, it's easy to neglect the health of my hands. That's why I always keep Perlier's White Almond Hand Cream & Mask close by. This hand mask is made from both the milk and oil from white almonds, making it intensely moisturizing.
Acca Kappa keeps my hair healthy and glowing with my Heat Resistant Travel Brush and Restorative Mask For Color & Treated Hair. My handmade brush delicately massages my scalp, improving circulation. And my hair mask softens and naturally polishes my hair thanks to ingredients like Argan oil, vitamin E, and keratin. I just apply the treatment for five minutes after shampooing, and any dullness in my hair is revived!
Lastly, I always like to keep a last minute gift on hand just in case, and The Marvis 7 Days of Flavor Toothpaste Gift Set is a gift that's perfect for anyone. All of these Italian classics are TSA-approved travel sizes and let you experience every iconic Marvis flavor.
Those are my holiday travel essentials – pack up your own winter travel bag and join me out in the world! Let’s have some great travel adventures with friends and family.

Ciao! Amy
