The Best Beauty Products Actually Made for Travelers
Cotarde Face With a View Concentrated Cream and Daydream Mousse Cream
The coolest part about this brand is that it’s entirely tested by pilots and frequent travelers. The Cotarde mission is to make “all globetrotters feel confident in their skin regardless of external conditions, climate or time zone.” Those that travel often are constantly exposed to varying temps, dry air during flights, and multiple sources of pollution, which is one of the key factors in aging.
Both of these creams are relatively thick, but they function differently. The Face with a View is more creamy and emollient, and helps strengthen the skin while boosting collagen. The Daydream Mousse Cream is a little bit lighter in texture and feels like a primer. It’s silicone-free, but you can easily see how it gives off an instant, blurring effect right when you apply it to the skin.

Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume and Curl Mascara
This beauty line was created by supermodel Lindsay Ellingson, who’s spent a lot of time traveling the world as part of her job. She designed these super hydrating, multi-tasking products for women who are constantly on-the-go and looking to free up some room in their carry-ons. Try the award-winning mascara, which offers amazing length and curl—no need to pack your eyelash curler.
Wander Beauty On-The-Glow Blush and Illuminator
Wander Beauty's blush and illuminator duo is super luxe and creamy—all four shades offer a lit-from-within glow and hydration to dry, tired complexions. Great for hiding any trace of long-flight exhaustion from your face.

Pour Moi Day Creams in Polar, Desert, Tropical and Temperate
Another skincare line targeted towards travelers, Pour Moi focuses on products for each climate. There are four day creams in the line (polar, desert, tropical and temperate), and each one contains specific hydrators for those environments.Unsurprisingly, the day cream made for polar climates is much thicker than the one formulated for tropical weather. However, each cream offers anti-aging benefits, too. This line is perfect for travelers that like to visit multiple parts of the world.
