What we're packing for Summer Vacation

Summer and vacations are finally here: from camping to big city adventures, these are the ORESTA team's clean beauty must haves for travel.

1. Activist Manuka Honey Mask The convenient tube makes it easy for travelling. It is a facial cleanser, mask and spot treatment in 1. It's extremely hydrating, promotes skin regeneration, repairs cellular damage from sun overexposure, calms inflammation and reduces the appearance of scars. 

2. Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator Hydration is the ultimate skin plumper! The accelerator is a toner that hydrates, soothes, protects and supports my skin. I apply it before the oil serum to help with product absorption and after my Mineral Powder Sun Defense to help set it.

3. Laurel Sun Serum is a defense and repair oil serum that is formulated for before and after sun exposure. It helps defends against sun exposure with oils that offer natural sun protection and addresses signs of sun exposure and overexposure. It's a magical blend of calendula, chamomile, licorice root, marshmallow root along with sun supporting oils of carrot seed, cranberry seed, seabuckthorn and rosehip. 

4. Eminence Sun Defense SPF30 is a mineral powder sunscreen. It feels lightweight, leaves no white cast and the powder brush applicator makes it convenient to apply and reapply on the go. It provides an even coverage and #2 works perfectly with my skin tone.  

1. Laurel Revive + Replenish Travel Kit This ideal travel kit in a beautiful organic zippered pouch has my Effortless Cleanser, Elixir I and Antioxidant Serum in travel friendly sizes that can be put in my carry-on.  I love the lip treatment that I can pop in my purse as well as the Almond Rose Exfoliant that duals as a mask.
2. ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint  SPF 40  gives me protection from the sun while offering a light coverage with a tint. With potent skin care ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide, it's so much more than just a sunscreen. I apply it over my serum and balm for a smooth even glow. ST10 Porto Ferro is my go to colour.
3. JAO Goé Oil A luxurious body oil blend of 28 plant, fruit, flower oils and butters that hydrate body, nails, hands and hair. I love to keep it at my bedside to apply at bedtime, especially after some sun. The tube packaging means it packs really easily for travel.
4. LILFOX Haute C Bright Serum Concentrate I love this stable and potent Vitamin C rich serum that works on brightening my pigmentation from sun and acne scarring as well as boosting collagen for a smoother skin. It's lightweight, travel-friendly and can be used as a healing, brightneing and firming serum day and night.  I apply 1-2 pumps after cleansing and toning, followed with my serum and balm.  NOTE: Due to the high Vitamin C content, it's advisable to wait up to 5 minutes to apply serum until your skin is used to it.
1. SADE BARON BADEN shampoo bar This moisturizing shampoo bar is perfect for my hair and body. It is 100% natural and sustainable, the ingredients allow me to use it as a shampoo and conditioner and the light scent of lavender, peppermint and tea tree are antibacterial and help to ward off bugs. Perfect for camping. 
2. Living Libations Sandalwood Best Skin Ever Cleanser + Moisturizer is a 2 in 1 product that meets all my needs, it's cleansing and deeply hydrating with a barely there scent that doesn't irritate my skin or my eyes. The sweet thyme oil in this also helps to ward of mosquitos which I no doubt will encounter in the woods. 
3. SALT AND STONE Santal Deodorant is simply strong and reliable. No matter how much I sweat, the deodorant is able to block the bad odour of sweat throughout the entire day. I love the wonderful soft and graceful scent. 
4. Eminence Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15 Small and compact, it hydrates and protects my lips from all the elements.
1. Salt + Stone Tinted Sunscreen Stick SPF50  This SPF stick is so easy to travel with and will be great for on-the-go city touch-ups for me and my kids and no need to worry about white-cast!
2. LILFOX Cool Box  This skin care box has all my LILFOX skin care favourites in travel sizes. The cool box will help keep my acne-prone skin in check for long, hot days exploring the city.
3. Kaia Naturals The Sweat Powder in Crisp Linen  Heat waves in New York are no joke. This lightweight powder absorbs excess moisture keep me smelling and looking fresh!
4. Eminence Yuzu Solid Body Oil  I use this body oil everyday. It gives my skin a glow and has gentle exfoliating acids to keep rough bumpy skin at bay. While the size is not carry-on friendly, it's solid so it's less likely to make a mess in my suitcase.
1. Laurel Lavender Hydrosol I recently learned that lavender helps repel mosquitos. I'm bringing this hydrosol to cottage, not only as my toner but also to help ward off the bugs when I'm relaxing on the deck.
2. Wild Creek Naturals Thieves Balm If I do get any bug bites, the Thieves balm helps to relieve the itchiness. It is also great for sore muscle relief.
3. Salt & Stone Lightweight Sheer Daily Sunscreen SPF40 is my go-to sunscreen for my face. I love the natural, non-greasy formula that doesn't feel like I have sunscreen on. Remember to reapply every 2 hours, or more if you're sweating or in the water!
4. LILFOX Succulent Pudding I love the texture, which is lightweight while being ultra hydrating and it soothes any redness or inflammation. The strawberry-guava scent is so beautiful. This active formula is enough that I don't need to pack a serum with me and I can keep my cottage skin care minimal.
