Dove Anti-Stress Micellar Water Body Wash and Beauty Bar
To help counteract the effects of pollution, Dove has transferred the impressive credentials of micellar water technology to new Dove Anti-Stress Micellar Water Body Wash and Beauty Bar – becoming the first to bring micellar water technology to the mass U.S. Body Wash market. The new Dove Anti-Stress Micellar Water Body Wash and Beauty Bar with mild micellar technology refreshes skin while gently cleansing away pollutants and environmental stressors like dirt and impurities to reveal soft, smooth skin.
Bodyography Foundation Primer
We can’t survive summer’s sweltering heat without a great primer. Bodyography’s Foundation Primer is a weightless, anti-aging primer that fills in fine lines and wrinkles, prevents collagen breakdown, and gives the skin a silky smooth, long-lasting flawless base. Whether you have a wedding, a beach day, or a BBQ on your agenda, you’ll never have to worry about a meltdown with Bodyography Foundation Primer on hand!
Vitabrid C12 FACE Brightening Powder
Vitabrid C12 is changing the way Vitamin C is applied to the skin & Japan noticed. In June, one bottle of their FACE Brightening Powder was sold every 27 seconds! Simply mix it with a liquid skincare product (serum, essence, cream, toner) for a powerful boost of a proprietary form of active, stabilized Vitamin C that brightens & increases collagen. Vitamin C is known to make skin healthy and radiant by neutralizing the damaging effects of free-radical activity from sun, stress, and pollution, and repairing visible signs of aging. As a highly potent, transdermal Vitamin C powder, it helps brighten, reducing the appearance of melanin for a clearer, more even complexion. With twice daily use in the AM and PM, skin is also shown to maintain a vibrant and firm texture as the powder minimizes fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen production. Shop: Barneys.com

Okame Bio-Cellulose Face Masks and Essential Travel Kit
Okame's Bio-Cellulose Face Masks and Essential Travel Kit are on my “Yes” list! There are 3 different Okame Bio-Cellulose Face Masks in the product line, each priced at $6 - a brightening mask, a hydrating mask and an anti-aging mask - that are soothing, ultra hydrating, nurturing for the skin & perfect for using inflight when your face starts to feel all sorts of dry.
- The Brightening Mask contains Ice Plant and Rice extracts (ingredients that naturally lighten the skin tone) which leave the skin looking rested, glowy, and radiant.
- The Hydrating Mask contains Green Caviar and Hyaluronic Acid (ingredients loaded with antioxidants) which deeply hydrate, refresh, and plump the skin.
- The Anti-Aging Mask contains antioxidant ingredients such as Orchid, Sunflower extracts and Centella Asiatica (an ingredient with multiple benefits) which fights aging and acne prone skin and protects the skin from environmental damages.
The Okame Travel Kit offers a convenient travel pouch of five high-quality bath & body products - their Keratin Shampoo, Keratin Conditioner, Skin Replenishing Body Shower, Skin Replenishing Body Lotion and Nourishing Hand Cream - all packed in small 1.52 fl. oz bottles.

LANEIGE Water Sleep Mask
Recharge dehydrated skin overnight with innovative sleep masks from K-beauty brand, LANEIGE. Giving a new meaning to beauty sleep, LANEIGE offers a variety of overnight masks so that you wake up with a rejuvenated, youthful glow. I love their Water Sleeping Mask. It’s formulated with highly concentrated Hydro Ionized Mineral Water to deliver intense doses of moisture to stressed, parched skin. The formula features Calming Sleepscent™, infused with orange flower, rose, and sandalwood, to relax and comfort the skin, while apricot and evening primrose extracts brighten and purify fatigued skin.
