Travel Tip from Kate Duff, Co-Founder of 3floz.com
"I love Air Repair's Rescue Balm for my hands (especially my cuticles) and my lips," says Duff. "On planes I put a little bit in my nose to protect against in-flight germs. On longer flights, I apply it on my feet and slip on socks for a mini pedicure."
Travel Pick: Emergen-C
Getaway time is precious, so risking a cold is not an option. Keep a few packs of this mega vitamin C powder close by and add to water to keep your immune system up and running.
Travel Tip from Alex Mintz, Co-Founder of 3floz.com
"I'm a huge fan of towelettes when on the go," says Mintz. "I use these on the beach, after a workout, and before I reapply makeup since they clean and hydrate at the same time — without leaving behind sticky residue."
Travel Pick: Blow Faux Dry Dry Shampoo
Even if you had squeaky-clean strands when you began your trip, they can feel less than fresh upon arrival at your destination. Your fix? Jump on the dry shampoo bandwagon immediately. This formula soaks up excess oils from your scalp while boosting volume, revitalizing your tired tresses.

Travel Pick: Binaca FASTblast
Since some gum can lose their flavor by the time you get to 'C' in the Picnic Game, this breath spray can be a surefire lifesaver for everyone in the car.

Travel Tip from Robert Verdi, TV Personality and Style Expert

Travel Pick: Samsonite Bright Lite 20" Carry-On
"Spinners (wheels that have a 360-degree turning radius) are a must for maneuvering airports," says Verdi. "This pink color is my favorite since it's easy to spot on the carousel and is sure to turn heads." Wary that you can't pack as much inside hard-shell luggage as soft-shell? "You'd be surprised at how much you can fit," says Verdi. "Nine times out of ten, you're overpacking anyway!"
Tip: "I always roll my clothes," adds Mintz. "I can pack for 10+ days in a carry-on with my clothes rolled instead of folded."
Travel Pick: Twist & Pout Lip Balm Keychains

Travel Pick: TRESemmé Fresh Start Waterless Foam Shampoo
If you're hitting the woods instead of the luxury resort, conditions can be unpredictable.

Try this waterless shampoo formulated with aloe and witch hazel, which work to naturally remove oil without water.
Travel Pick: Fragrance On the Go

Travel Pick: My Tagalongs Jet Sets
Being very partial to our own beauty products, we understand if you would rather get thrown into the pool in your best dress than use what's in the hotel room. This set of refillable jars lets you pick what you want to bring and is small enough to fit in your carry-on.
Travel Tip from Jillian Dempsey, Avon Global Creative Color Director and Hollywood Makeup Artist
"Before you reach your destination, take five minutes to touch up your look," says Dempsey. "Achieve a fast makeover with cream blush, a dot of concealer under the eyes, and one coat of waterproof mascara. Top it off with a lip gloss a punchier shade looks great in bright daylight."
Travel Tip: Pack Products That Multitask
"Prep your cosmetics bag with easy-to-apply, multitasking makeup," says Dempsey." My Professional Multi Pencil has a creamy lip/cheek color and a highlighting eyeshadow all in a dual-ended pencil. The fact that you can get a complete look with one product makes this the perfect traveling companion."
"I pack an inexpensive shampoo like VO5 that lathers well enough to double as a shaving cream," says Real Beauty associate editor Colleen Moody. "And if I leave my favorite fragrance behind, I dab my deodorant on my wrists to get the same effect. Dove has some great light scents like Wild Rose, so it won't make you smell like you took a bath in baby powder."
Travel Pick: Sephora On-the-Go Makeup Palette in Bronze Tones
No need to bring the whole cosmetic counter — this smaller-than-an-iPhone palette includes four lip shades, eight versatile eye shadows, and a bronzer for the perfect summer sun-kissed look.
Travel Pick: Sula Paint and Peel Duo in Watermelon
This double-sided wand includes nail polish on one end and a top coat on the other. The best part is that the color delivers a beautiful punchy-pink finish, but peels away when you want a do-over.
