Thankfully, on the day of my departure, I was able to reach a point of lucidity and put together a travel-friendly skincare routine that served me wonderfully over the course of the trip. Here are some tips to help you do the same, and hopefully save you some stress in the process!
A-Passioni Retinol cream contains 1% vegan retinol, along with a host of other ingredients that are meant to nourish the skin. Most articles that you read about it describe it as “gentle” and “not like other retinols.” Ahem. I beg to differ.

If you are anything like me, you spent your formative teen years blasting your face with astringent, drying toners, desperately trying to keep the pimples at bay.

Triple C is a collaboration between Charlotte Cho, one of the co-founders of Soko Glam, and COSRX. When it was first introduced, the hype around it was so strong that it sold out within hours upon its release! It remains an extremely popular product, with good reason.
Perfect Glow comes with 7 ampoules that you use over the course of a week. According to the Babor website, this product is for people wanting to address dull skin.
The iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum is a solid product, and it calms my skin exactly as I hoped it would!
I found these serums on Amazon, as I hastily scrolled about trying to find replacements for my dwindling retinol and vitamin C. I liked that the Mad Hippie products had a fairly short ingredients list, and the pricing was about average for 30ml size bottles of product. Only one of these serums, however, has truly impressed me.
If you are at all like me (i.e. easily scared off by a product that costs over $30), then you will definitely have an appreciation for the following recommendations.
After using Farmacy’s Bright On, I discovered that clay masks don’t have to be drying!
