This is also the biggest season for travel and we love experimenting with new products that just happen to be TSA regulation size approved. We’ve tried squeezing our favorite serums and moisturizers into those travel containers but they just don’t seem to work as well when not bottled up in their delicate gilded jars. We kid, of course. But — there is something to having a beautiful set of products while away from home. It’s a small luxury that just makes traveling more enjoyable.

We’ve rounded up our favorite beauty gift sets from Sephora, Space NK and Blue Mercury for the face, body and hair. Here’s to the joy of discovery and traveling well.
