Little things make all the difference beauty-wise while traveling this summer

When people pack these days, they really have to pick and choose. Not everything can go into the 3-1-1 carry on travel bag and at least the European airlines are getting downright bitchy about check bags' weights. Some airlines are even weighing purses!

So, what are some little things that will help make you look and feel more polished while traveling this summer? I was happy to be hosted to experience several of them!

GM Collin -- the luxe French-Canadian brand -- has an Instant Radiance Eye Patch. It's cleaner than a mask, moist and comforting. It's so easy to apply and only takes 20 minutes! It won't even count against your 3-1-1 carry on travel bag.

Sebamed has a way of preventing/easing that dead-giveaway to aging and hard travel: hand and nail balm! It's for sensitive skin and has a rich lotion texture. It's sized perfectly for a 3-1-1 carry on travel bag, so take it and use it. Frequent use is the only way to go for hand creams.

Jane Iredale Hydration Sprays: the question is, when won't you use it? During hot weather trips, airplanes, as a faint and natural scent, to set makeup . . .

Supersmile, created by the father of cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Irwin Smigel, has a number of products that are unisex and help you make a great impression while traveling. Ultimate Lip Balm does 5 things:

Hydrates: Replenishes and retains moisture deep beneath the skin’s surface for long-lasting, soft lips.
Exfoliates: Gently exfoliates away aged skin cells to expose younger, firmer skin while enhancing lips’ natural color.
Nourishes: Infuses lips with nourishing collagen and hyaluronic acid for a smooth, full appearance.
Conditions: Soothes, heals and repairs cracked, dry lips with boswellia oil and shea butter while reducing and inhibiting future inflammation and damage.
Restores: Restores your lips’ youthful appearance, by eliminating fine lines and wrinkles with amino acids that protect your lips from free radicals.
