There is something about summer that is universally appealing – be it the warm weather, the seemingly longer, endless days, or simply the break from the usual fast-paced life we lead year-round. But possibly the most loved factor of summer? Travel. Every summer, for most us, is an opportunity to travel in some form or the other. For international students (like myself), it is a time to go back home or, at least, to one of the homes we've lived in. For families, it's a time to venture to new places as a unit – exploring and indulging in places far different from those we are used to. Travel is a chance to relax and unwind as much as it is a way to step outside your comfort zone. Whether it involves walking the streets of Greece of enjoying some of these gorgeous villas in Bali, the next few months have quite a bit in store for everyone. This summer, I'm lucky enough to have a bit of everything to look forward to – exploring two of my favorite cities, college touring, returning to India, interning, and hopefully shopping in between it all.
But with all these wonderful aspects of traveling comes a few trials, too – most of which include flights and travel time. With time zone differences and 24-hour journeys (!), it is important to maintain a strict in-flight beauty regime – or at least, have a few tips and tricks to help you along the way. This is where Laneige comes in; a brand which is catering to this hectic time, making sure all beauty-conscious travellers have the perfect travel-size items throughout.
Laneige's perfect renew set is, as the name suggests, perfect for summer and trips which range from week-long to month-long. Because I am generally a last-minute packer (a habit which I am hoping to break), this set was even more appealing for me. The medium-sized pouch is compact enough to fit into your handbag or pop into any other carry-on during a flight. You could literally throw it into your suitcase as a last-minute packing addition – and save some space for any other flight necessities. Inside the pouch, you'll find five travel essentials, listed below. Each has the promise of offering clear, healthy skin. I first used the set when I went back to Bombay last week. The products are easily applicable, and I found that the multi-cleanser in particular is a useful tool, resulting in a soft texture. For those who travel often, it is safe to say that long flights have the terrible side-effect of dry skin. Fighting this effect is about a hundred times easier with each of these Laneige products. While individually they serve different purposes, I'd say every one is quintessential for travel, preventing the dark circles and dryness that arise when you travel continuously. With its relatively small size and wonderful variety of products, the set will find a place in my bag for every flight over the course of summer. Inside, you'll find:
Multi Cleanser (30ml)
Perfect Renew Skin Refiner (50ml)
Perfect Renew Emulsion (50ml)
Perfect Renew Essence (15ml)
Perfect Renew Cream (20ml)
