The Ultimate Travel Accessory
By Liz Ritter, Executive Editor |
NewBeauty recently met with the staff of SpaFinder to discuss editorial ideas for our yearly Directory. In between the brainstorming session, we got on the topic of travel (the SpaFinder staff is always off to a fabulous place in the world of wellness, next stop: Bali, for the Global Spa Summit), which led to the ever-popular topic: What's at the top of your “must-have” suitcase items for these faraway destinations?
The answer came quickly: a travel candle. I couldn't help but be a bit skeptical. I love candles, but, to me, a travel candle is just a smaller version of my favorites that doesn't last as long. It's not exactly up there with my passport on my packing list.
But I gave it a whirl on my next plane trip with h.wood.beauty Melt T Glow Travel Lotion Candle. These travel-sized essential-oil candles are tea-infused with a bevy of good-for-you ingredients-and double as supermoisturizing shea butter-rich lotions. They barely took up any room in my carry-on, created an unbelievably relaxing ambiance in the stark hotel room, and, best of all the Pom-Rose fragrance was a luxurious lotion that softened my skin and created such a great scent, I could skip perfume. Cross two things off your packing list with this one product.
