Summertime months are synonymous with vacationing and traveling. So, whether you’re headed to the cottage or off to see the beautiful wonders of Europe, it’s time to say au revoir to that bulky cosmetic bag and hello to a small, friendlier travel companion.
With every woman’s beauty travel needs in mind, Cargo Cosmetics created ColourCards Eye Shadows. These single use eye shadows are glazed onto ultra flat cards for easy, on-the-go use. Change looks from day to night and from city to city as each box of ColourCards comes with a variety of radiant, shimmering hues from gold to pink and green. Designed to suit any occasion perfectly.
These portable, luxury shimmers are made from the finest nutrients to keep skin radiant while on the move. A powerful antioxidant, vitamin E, conditions the skin making it smooth and supple while also protecting it from sun damage and environmental factors. To ensure its velvety texture and increase its staying power, the shadows are infused with silica, which also enhances blending and allows for greater colour control.
For your next adventure, toss the ColourCards in a purse, wallet, or even travel with them in their compact reusable tin.

The sun is shining, the days are hot and spending time outside is all we want to do. Soaking up the rays all day calls for some serious sunscreen application, but sometimes, no matter how much we apply and re-apply, burns have a way of sneaking up on us. They turn our skin into a shade more likened to a lobster than that beautiful sun kissed glow we were going for!
More than just calming down our burning skin, we need to repair it and that’s where Vichy Laboratories comes in. Taking into consideration the process of the sun’s rays penetrating through different layers of our skin, ruining our protective cells and making sunburns visible, they created the Vichy Capital Soleil After Sun Cellular SOS Repair Balm.
This specially designed formula works to repair damage by restoring the skin’s cellular defense capital. What’s also unique is the epilobe extract ingredient which sooths over-exposed, painful and red skin by penetrating deeply and relieving you from pain.
Be generous in your application over the affected areas for about four or five days and before you know it you’ll turn your accidental lobster glow into a beautiful bronzed tan.
