The Best Skincare Products to Travel With

Thank you to PRIMP and LaFlore for sponsoring today's post! As always, all opinions are my own.

There's two things I really will never get tired of - traveling, and trying new skincare products. If you've been around here for a while, you know how much I LOVE to try different skincare brands and see what works best, what addresses specific needs the best and which I'd recommend the most. For the most part, I stick to a skincare routine morning and night but this always can become an issue when it comes to traveling. I always take whatever products I'm currently using on trips and the looks I get from airport security sometimes - I tell ya! Ha!

When I started testing out LaFlore's skincare line, I was extremely excited because using it's probiotic technology, it's only a three step process. That's just three bottles to pack in your travel bag - no more struggling to pack 4578 different bottles when you're going on a trip, and that's a huge game changer if you ask me.


The three products in the LaFlore line are the probiotic cleanser, serum concentrate and the probiotic daily defense moisturizer. All three of these are plant based and organic, cruelty free and free of parabens, sulfates, gluten and all of that unnecessary you-know-what that we SO don't need in skincare products! Whether it's because the cold weather is hitting, you're traveling or your skin just needs some extra TLC, the probiotics in the LaFlore formula makes sure that your skin is nourished and gets down deeper to take care of any deep skin issues too.

LaFlore Probiotic Cleanser: one of my biggest pet peeves with face cleansers is when they smell like chemicals or don't smell like something you'd want to put on your face. That's always what I do first when I look to buy/try a new cleanser - smell it. Is that weird? Haha - I always do that with skincare products! I'm happy to say that this cleanser smells *so* natural, clean and calming. It's made with ingredients like Perilla Seed Oil, which is great for exfoliating, hydration, circulation and cell renewal too. It's basically a cleanser/exfoliantall in one - so when applying it each day, I rub it in and let it sit for a few minutes and then wash it off with a warm washcloth.


Cleanser and exfoliant in one bottle - check that off of the packing list!

LaFlore Serum Concentrate: this may be my favorite product to use from the LaFlore line, mainly because it has aloe in it! I LOVE aloe. It's so natural and has so many health benefits for your skin, and there really is nothing better than natural aloe on a burn or dry skin to sooth it! Back to my point though - it also has hemp seed oil, avocado (!!!) and Jojoba - to name a few - amazing ingredients. All of these natural oils and ingredients together allow your skin to rejuvenate, heal, calm inflammation and boost your overall immune system. Never have I used skincare products that were SO good for you before! It's truly an amazing serum - it works so well, and I can't even begin to describe just how calming it is.


During these colder months especially, my cheeks get red and my skin and lips feel SO uncomfortably dry. Regular dry skin products don't always do the job, but this serum is so soothing and hydrating that I could go without using a moisturizer technically, and still feel like my skin is silky smooth. If dryness is one of your main issues too, you'll be amazed at this stuff! I assumed it'd be like every other product I've tried that promised to help my skin, but it's extremely different in so many positive ways.

And as if this serum concentrate wasn't good enough, it gets better... You can use it as a spot treatment to help treat a blemish!

---

Long flights dry your skin out and make you feel - I don't even know what the word is, but if you've ever flown you know what I mean! It's the worst feeling, so in this one bottle you have a serum, a fix for dry skin and a spot treatment. We're up to two bottles, and FIVE uses. #lifesaver

LaFlore Probiotic Daily Defense Moisturizer: my favorite part to any skincare routine is the moisturizer! In a good moisturizer, I look for natural ingredients, a simple/clean - or better yet, scentless - smell and a non-sticky feel after applying. This one goes above and beyond ALL of that! It's extremely lightweight and helps to strengthen your skin's flora, increase its cellular metabolism and works to enhance collagen, which works hard to fight off the stress brought on by your makeup, soaps, etc. It's made with aloe too, and has Vitamin D3 in it to help with the overall health of your skin. The aloe is a huge part of LaFlore's secret - instead of using a water base, they use aloe which is partially why it's all so healing, hydrating and soothing.


It's kind of crazy to think that these three products have SIX benefits to them - that's narrowing down the product you pack to travel with by 3 or more bottles/jars! And after using these products for just about a month now, I'm excited to travel with them and know that they work well enough to be the only products I need, even on a trip.

Now, I'm one to have a morning and nightly skincare routine on top of washing my face, but when using the LaFlore products they say it's best to only wash at night. This is to make sure that the ingredients have time to sooth, cleanse and work to the max. The cleanser is meant to wash the remainder of your makeup and basically the day away at night, and the serum concentrate helps to replenish your skin overnight; while the moisturizer is best used in the morning to protect your skin for the day ahead.


I could go on and on about this brand all day - that's how much I love it. It works wonders on your skins health and appearance, and on top of everything else, it brightens too! Both the serum concentrate and moisturizer have added pearls and brightening effects to even your skin tone. After using it for a couple of weeks, you'll 100% be able to see how much brighter your skin tone is.


Have you used probiotic skincare before? It's incredible and SO worth a try! I highly recommend LaFlore skincare - it's incredible to use, feels great on your skin AND is such a life saver when it comes to packing your skincare products for a trip! No more worry of baggage being overweight -- when it comes to skincare anyway, no promise with the shoes! ;)
