The Lucky Editor's Guide To Packing The Perfect Suitcase

"These three things always go in my carry-on:

  • Dr. Dennis Gross EZ4U Facial Towelettes: They remove makeup, cleanse, tone, and leave my skin fresh but not dry.

  • Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex: This tiny roll-on face oil creates a barrier between my skin and that awful, drying airplane air. It's super moisturizing and smells like a spa.
  • Herban Essentials Lavender Towelettes: I'm obsessive about sanitizing my airplane seat (seatbelt, arm rests, tray tables) and hotel room (remote, door knobs, light switches…), and these essential-oil-infused ones are the best-smelling ones around." - Maura Lynch, Senior Beauty Editor
