If there’s one traveling snafu we’ve come to dread, it’s the casual glance in the cab’s rearview mirror. Hello, jetlagged skin and smudged makeup! Which is why we always carry Laura Mercier’s purse-friendly compact on hand. This bestseller instantly hydrates skin, providing sheer-to-medium, dewy coverage that passes back-of-cab inspection. Bonus: It lasts 6–8 hours and protects skin with SPF 20.
How it Works
The nongreasy, fragrance-free moisturizer evens out skin tone but won’t clog pores—all while guarding skin from UVA and UVB rays. Each slick compact houses a round sponge applicator in its own ventilated compartment.
How to Use
Using the sponge applicator, apply to the outer edges of your face, working inward toward your nose. Layer for more coverage—builds from sheer to medium.
