Travelers: it's now a family affair! World-class Philip B. for body, nails
Tamar Alexia Fleishman, Esq.

Fellow traveler, you've read my rhapsodizing about the hair care line favorite of international royalty and titans, Philip B. He uses the finest ingredients on the planet and even wrote a book about how one could make some skin and hair care items at home. I've had it for 20 years and I treasure it. However, let's face it: when we're traveling, we need things to be already made! Can't source exquisite fruits and veggies, carry blenders and all of their electrical converters.

Not only has Philip B. expanded into body care, but also his talented sister Lauren B. has started a nail care line! I was happy to be hosted to experience them.

Philip B. has a lavender Hair & Body Shampoo that comes in a perfect for 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag size. It's perfect for both genders and also, for minimalists who don't need anything else! He sources quality lavender oil. Lavender has been known since Latin and Medieval French times as a healing, antiseptic and cleansing plant. It has many natural chemical compounds that soothe skin. The Hair & Body Shampoo has a relaxing, fresh and natural -- not perfumed -- scent and gorgeous natural purple color. I once had a wacky friend who wanted me to give up my life and run away with her to run a lavender farm in Roanoke. Trust me, it's better to buy the Philip B. products.

Lauren B has a Nourish Hand Creme that takes a tube of hand cream into the couture zone. Also perfectly sized for 3-1-1 carry-on travel bags, it's luxurious without being greasy or goopy. It's scented with an orchid/peony mix that smells like fine perfume. The whole experience of using it is very elegant. This is what they say about it:

A super rich indulgence. Laced with antioxidants, peptides and amino acids, this remarkably non-greasy hydrator leaves hands ridiculously smooth and soft. A special delivery system ensures that moisturizing agents sink in fast to plump and soothe for hours.
