Travel Tips: 5 Ways to Use Boom on Your Next Vacation
There’s something magical about traveling, isn’t there?
Just by leaving your hometown, you have a chance to reinvigorate your life, welcome in new adventures, meet fascinating new people, make memories with your loved ones, try amazing new things, see the world from other perspectives (quite literally)…
Together, the three Boomsticks give you a full-body moisturizer, creamy blush, lipstick, eyeshadow, bronzer and highlighter. These multitasking Boomsticks can replace all those items in your makeup bag, so you can pack light.
All three Boomsticks are also designed to match your skin—not your outfit. That means your Boomstick makeup will work with every blouse, dress or casual outfit you pack in your suitcase or carry-on.
It also means you can switch your makeup from daytime to evening, just by using the same three sticks. (Think of all the eyeshadows and lipsticks you can leave at home.)
2. Carry a moisturizer on the plane.
All airplanes are temperature-controlled, and all have the potential to dry out your skin quickly. A heated or air-conditioned car can do the exact same thing on a long road trip.
If you’re getting on a plane, we suggest carrying our universal moisturizing stick, Boomstick Glo, so you can quickly moisturize your face and hands in flight.
Like all Boomsticks, Boomstick Glo is a solid—not a liquid. This means it’s easier to carry Boomstick Glo onto a plane in your purse or carry-on than any liquid moisturizer.
If you’re driving instead of flying, you may want to use a liquid moisturizer instead. For instance, you can carry the smallest “travel size” (2 oz.) Boom Cotton or Boomsilk in the car if you’re on a long road trip.
3. Let your Boom pull double-duty on the road.
The more your cosmetics and skin care can do, the less you have to pack.
That’s why we recommend packing items that can pull double-duty. For example, Boomstick Color is a lipstick, creamy blush, bronzer, highlighter and eyeshadow. You can use it in multiple places, in many different ways.
Same with Boomstick Glimmer. You can use this shimmery stick to add a natural-looking sparkle to your eyelids and sides of your eyes—in addition to your clavicle, shoulders and decollete. (It’s a good idea if you’re going to a wedding, upscale dinner out or other dressed-up occasion while you’re traveling.)
A full-body moisturizer like Boomsilk, Boom Cotton or Boomstick Glo also pulls double-duty. You can use all three moisturizers on your entire face and body, so you don’t have to carry multiple lotions or creams when you travel.
Even our facial cleanser,Boom Clean can pull double-duty as a body wash in a pinch.
4. Show your freshest skin, even when you’re jet-lagged.
As amazing as traveling is, it can wear you out—especially if you’re crossing timezones.
A little strategically placed Boom can help you look your best, even when your body has no idea what time it is.
Boomstick Color is fantastic for giving you an “awake” look at the airport (or on long car trips). Just dab this Boomstick directly onto your upper cheekbones, forehead and lips. Then blend it in with your fingers. You’ll instantly look healthy, vital and most of all—awake—no matter what time it is.
Once you reach your destination, we suggest giving your skin a little extra care. Take five extra minutes and use a gentle exfoliant like Boom Scrub. It will clean out all the dirt, makeup and impurities that may have built up in your pores while on the road.
But more importantly, it will gently strip away any dull, tired skin from your face–to make way for your newest, best-looking skin.
This way, your skin will look fresh and supple, even when you’re jetlagged.
Got limited space in your carry-on luggage or suitcase for the car?
Here are our picks for the best Boom to pack for the road…
1. Boomstick Trio. Yes, you probably could have guessed this one, right? But we still had to make all three Boomsticks our #1 pick.
Here’s why... They’re light and easy to carry. They have multiple functions (including #2 and #4 above). They’re plane-friendly. They also come with their own organic cotton bag, so you can carry them anywhere.
2. Boom Clean. It’s important to stay fresh-faced and clean while you travel. That’s why we suggest carrying Boom Clean. It’s a makeup remover, facial cleanser and as we mentioned, even a body wash for the shower if you’d like to use it that way.
3. Boom Scrub. It’s a five-minute exfoliant and pore cleanser that you can use to make yourself look less jet-lagged from the road. Enough said, right?
Now we’re curious… do you carry Boom with you when you travel? If so, what do you use? Are there any best picks we missed?
