Two Must Haves for Your Travel Bag

Two Must Have’s for Your Travel Bag

 Dr. Young Aquaholic Sleeping Mask & AG Hair Cosmetics Dry Shampoo


Trains, planes and automobiles…………….I love to travel.  I could completely identify with George Clooney’s character in “Up in the Air”.  Once I clear security I am home! My most recent jaunt was a 30 + hour in transit journey back from Africa.  I could do that in my sleep.  Watch some movies, read, needlepoint, knit, listen to the IPOD……….easy journey!  The only thing I hate about travel is what it does to my skin and hair.  I am always on the lookout for easy, portable products that work well.   As luck would have it, I managed to find two great products to add to my travel bag!

Dr. Young,, is an Asian cosmetic line which originates from the diary of a college freshman who suffered from various skin problems.  She studied and searched for years with continuous effort to find the solution for her own skin troubles.  The brand was launched in 2008 as a result of a dream of a regular college student who joined forces with dermatological and skin experts with abundant clinical experience.  Dr Young was developed for the generation who has healthy beauty, both inner and outer beauty.   The brand uses no animal-orgin ingredients, mineral oils, and no sodium lauryl sulfate.  The ingredients are organic and botanical oils.

I love the entire line, but I am LOVING the aquaholic sleeping mask and am incorporating it into my carry-on bags.  My skin gets ultra dry in the pressurized plane air, and most of my remedies are normally too goo-ey and get all over the place.  Dr. Young’s Aquaholic Sleeping Mask comes in a small portable size, is easy to put on and take off, and best yet, is that it is not  noticeable when on. It is made from bamboo water and leaves the skin refreshed and hydrated.  It also contains vitamin complexes B3, B5, B6, C, and E which have antioxidant and brightening effects that recharges the skin while you sleep. It will be nice to use that sauna effect to actually help my skin!

I also hate the effect of travel on my hair! Even after a half hour shuttle, I want to wash my hair and get the oils and flatness out of it. When dry shampoos were impossible to find, I would use baby powder.  It was NOT easy to use.  It got over everything.  In addition, now- a- days traveling with a bag of white powder will get you stopped at every security check point.  It won’t be fun! Dry shampoos are becoming easier to find, but trying to get on that can pass through security restrictions, and one that actually smells nice did not exist.  My choice….AG Hair Cosmetics fast FWD dry shampoo.

AG Hair Cosmetics was founded over 20 years ago by John and Lotte Davis.  They started their company in their basement and sold their products to salons by day, one bottle, one salon, one customer at a time.  Today AG is sold in thousands of salons across North America and raved hair/beauty editors and celebs all over.  Their philosophy is to simply produce hair products that offer outstanding results.  And when their customer is asked what makes AG different, their response is “AG just works!” And it does……use, love, repeat………..and pack straight into my travel bags!
