June kicks off summer, and summer means travel—road trips, staycations, and—if you’re lucky—perhaps a far-flung adventure. While travel is inspiring and invigorating, it can also be extraordinarily draining. This month, we’re helping you skip the tired, ugh parts of the journey so that you can go straight to the wow moments.
For me, the first step is being prepared. You might have guessed that my preparedness tends to include two things: food and beauty products. I never leave home without a carry-on full of snacks (almond butter, dark chocolate, and a sturdy salad). And, since starting Birchbox four years ago, I’ve perfected my travel beauty kit. I bring plenty of samples, of course, but I am also religious about traveling with sheet masks (my current favorite is Masqueology Brightening Mask), multiuse oils like Nuxe’s Huile Prodigieuse, and a chic in-a-pinch laundry detergent like the The Laundress Wash & Stain Bar.
It’s only appropriate that this month we’re kicking off our partnership with JetBlue. We’ve teamed up with the airline to create exclusive amenity kits for their new Mint Experience so you’ll find us 35,000 feet in the air! Closer to ground, you’ll find a fun quiz in this month’s box. Take it to find out which destination matches your style, then share it for a chance to win round-trip travel certificate from JetBlue!
