wanderlust-worthy products…

Summer is notably the season for travel and adventure. With an upcoming trip to Italy, I’ve piled together the best Benefit products to travel with. These six products will keep you looking your best both on and off the plane.

Traveling acts as a huge stressor to your skin causing it to be dehydrated, breakout, and look less than appealing once you step off the plane. The longer the flight, the less glamorous it gets. Drink lots of water during the flight & hydrate your skin on those long, transcontinental flights using b.right! Radiant Skincare by Benefit six piece intro kit. Rid yourself of jetlag-induced dark circles with erase paste concealer. This concentrated, creamy concealer brightens and camouflages in one easy step.  Open those eyes with they’re real! mascara deluxe mini. This mini tube creates mega lashes. Apply BADgal liner waterproof for a dramatic eye that will last you through an entire day of sightseeing. Get two for the price of one with pocket pal—your cheeks and lips will be pleased with the all-day rosy stain of benetint. Lastly, store all these babies in the benefit travel beauty bag. Pack your bags, gorgeous! You’re (jet) set!

With wanderlust taking over my mind, I started talking with some of the gals around the office about their dream vacations. Here’s what I asked:

Here’s what the ladies of Beauty Central had to say:

“Panama for the amazing surf.”Amanda, Digital Design

“I would love to explore Amsterdam on bikes! I love riding bikes and I hear that it is THE city to do it in.”Natalie, Creative Services

“Thailand for the food and the beauty of the country.”Margaux, Research and Development

I would go to Bali. It seems like a beautiful place to get in touch with oneself and meditate.”—Katie, First Impressions

“Definitely Denmark. I’m Danish and I miss home.”Ania, Digital Marketing

“I have always wanted to go to Greece for the beautiful, clear water and amazing architecture. The cute men and delicious food don’t hurt either.”Bridget, PR and Marketing


So gals, now I’ll ask you: If you could travel to any place in the world—where would you go and why?

Happy travels! May your summer be filled with exotic adventures.
