Skin Soooooo Soft...

If you're heading out of town this weekend for a minimoon, honeymoon or maybe just a relaximoon, here are some travel toiletry sets worth checking out.

Flying first class?

M-LAB Anti-Aging Travel Collection, $130

Guests at London's legendary Connaught Hotel receive complimentary M Lab goodies from the butler team (yes, they are trained in skincare!). That should tell you something about the M LAB's cult following in Europe. Originally created for dermatologists and plastic surgeons, M LAB's products are the most powerful anti-aging skin-care line on the market. This anti-aging collection reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and overall helps improve your skin’s condition. The travel kit includes a cleanser, toner, anti-aging creme and serum, day treatment SPF 15 and and eye cream. If you're in the mood to splurge, your skin will surely thank you.

In coach class?

Crabtree & Evelyn India Hicks Island Living Travel set, $35

British interior designer and model India Hicks consulted with Crabtree & Evelyn to launch this new collection of her favorite beauty necessities. Her love for the Bahamas inspired this travel set which includes a body cream and polish and a tropical green, citrus and spider lilies fragrance, in a vintage-inspired palm print bag. A real bargain to keep your skin looking as good as globetrotting Elle MacPherson if you ask me.

And, if you don't have any travel plans, now is a great time to start looking. The New York Times' Practical Traveler reports that there are plenty of good travel deals to be had in Europe!

Bon voyage!
