Skincare that should be part of your travel gear: The Body Shop Vitamin C line

Updated on October 6, 2015

The Body Shop Vitamin C line for travel

As an experienced world-traveler, I definitely recommend that you try your skincare at home well ahead of your journey. Using some freebie soap left on a dish in your hotel on your face is asking for trouble. But sometimes, despite all your plans, you have to run out and get some skin products while traveling! Your bag goes missing thanks to the airlines, sometimes something leaks, sometimes you even forget to pack your toiletries bag.

I suggest considering using The Body Shop's products both at home and on the road! They have 2,500 stores in 60 markets, including many stores right in airports. You'll be able to get it when and where you need it. I was happy to be hosted to experience the line.

The new Vitamin C line uses that ingredient -- officially ascorbic acid -- to brighten skin. That's something many of us need this fall with dull, worn-out and fading suntans. Now, if you have a rashy or irritated complexion, this is not your cup of tea.

The line comes in perfect for 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag sizes in easy to open flip-top tubes and bottles. The cleanser is an exfoliating type with gentle beads. The line also features a micro-dermabrasion polish with fine buffing beads. I would suggest using one or the other product on a given day and applying gently.

Their Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz is delightful to keep in the 'fridge! On a sticky day or after exertion, it gives you that extra clean, extra refreshed feeling . . . not to mention the reviving citrus scent.

The moisturizer in the line has an SPF of 30, which experts suggest is the minimum level of sunscreen you need to properly protect your skin. This has a thinner, sheerer consistency that won't feel heavy on your face or interfere with applying cosmetics over it.

Think of the Vitamin C Skin Boost as a primer to apply before cosmetics for smoother lay-down. It's not too acid-y and it won't burn your skin. It's a gentle, silky formula that goes on after moisturizer.
