As we sink into to the thick of the holiday season, our lifestyle becomes one ‘on the go’ from parties to gift shopping and travel plans. Keeping up our beauty routine in the mayhem can be taxing – never mind lugging around products in purses, travel bags and desk drawers (we’ve all done that work-to-drinks party fix in an office toilet.) When it comes to traveling we also have an additional problem with baggage and liquid allowances. So how do we keep our holiday look clean, convenient and stress free? Below I list some of my favorite natural beauty products that fit perfectly into any ‘on the go’ lifestyle.
