Forget the 311 carry-on bag! Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF Dry Sunscreen

See also

Are you like I am when traveling? Whenever I can do without putting one more thing into the 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag, I love it. That much more room for bath gel . . . ah. We all know that we need to be wearing sunscreen, but it's not as much fun as, well, baths. Jane Iredale to the rescue! I was very happy to be hosted to experience it.

This luxe company that's familiar to those who frequent the most luxe spas in the world or even are under the care of physicians who reconstruct youth into bodies and faces, has created a dry sunscreen. Powder-Me SPF Dry Sunscreen comes in a little self-contained jar that won't leak or spill. Sunscreen gets filtered onto a sponge applicator -- after you take off the seal. It has a built-in mirror, so you don't need anything to apply it anywhere.

It comes in three different skin shades. It sponges on as a sheer powder, so it won't interfere with makeup application or melt. Take it to work, the beach . . . it's a great unisex product, too.
