Working at Lonny, I'm lucky enough to do a fair amount of travel. From red-eyes to Los Angeles to whirlwind trips to the Spanish isles, I count my lucky stars for the expeditious opportunities—but my skin is less than grateful. Between the airplane dryness and the switching climes, things get out of whack pretty quickly when I'm on the go. Short of bringing my entire (full-sized) skincare arsenal from home and necessitating a checked bag, my options have felt pretty limited. Until I was introduced to One Love Organics—and their fabulous travel kit.
Packing for a recent trip to the Napa Valley was a cinch with the Georgia-based brand's greatest hits, including a creamy beauty balm, a perk-up potion of a serum, and an exfoliating scrub, all encased in an adorable, petal-hued canvas satchel. I've never been one to use an entire line of products—I'm more prone to mixing and matching high-end moisturizers with pharmacy face washes and facialist-prescribed masks—but I can honestly say that each new product I try from One Love Organics dethrones one of my previous go-tos. My new secret weapon? Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Booster, a woodsy-scented serum made of wild raspberry leaf, lemon, and mint that instantly perks up my cheeks and acts as a gloriously "dewifying" layer under makeup.
Handcrafted on the tiny barrier island of St. Simons, the line is entirely organic and made in small, artisanal batches. Founder Suzanne LeRoux is passionate about a "less is more" approach to skincare, rueing preservatives, dyes, and high water content for pure, nature-based ingredients such as sweet pea flour and farm fresh Bulgarian rose oil. As my first mini-order of product begins to dwindle from tri-daily use and my skin feels better by the day, I'm officially a One Love convert—travel or no.
