Winter weather is notorious for drying out skin. Pair that fact with the inevitable holiday travels, and there’s a big chance your skin will have a freak out. Yep, even though it’s a joyful time to reunite with family, simply sitting in a stuffy plane cabin or switching up your environment can wreck havoc on your skin — exasperating dryness and triggering a slew of other issues.

I for one have pretty normal skin, but every year when November rolls around, my skin acts like I’ve left it high and dry in the desert. With extensive travel plans for the holidays, I’ve been trying to perfect my skin routine to prevent flakes and that uncomfortable dry, tight feeling. There’s one struggle, though: Few skincare products are designed to be travel-friendly. That’s not to say there aren’t any travel-friendly skincare heroes — there are a couple diamonds in the rough, like the Banila Co Blooming Youth Multi-Balm Stick.

On a particularly dry day a few weeks ago, I came across this handy stick in my skincare stash. Rather than repeating my entire routine mid-day, I decided to swipe this across my cheeks, along my forehead and down my nose for a quick hydration boost — and it immediately made a difference. As a beauty writer, I test hundreds of products per year, but few make such an impact from the first use. Let me tell you, I could instantly tell this was something special.

The unique hydrating stick is packed with hyaluronic acid and peach collagen to simultaneously tackle dryness and signs of aging (like fine lines and wrinkles). It produces a relaxing cooling effect upon application, and despite having a rich texture, it melts right into the skin for a weightless, glowy finish.

Korean beauty regularly sets skincare trends with cutting edge innovations (hello, snail mucin), and stick formats will surely be the next big thing — mainly because they’re especially genius for travel. I love that I can easily slip this into my personal item and reach for it when I feel any dryness creeping up while in the air. I’m confident that with this on hand, I’ll step off the plane looking refreshed and dewy, banishing that dull in-flight skin for good.

Banila Co may be best known for their cleansing balms (the Clean It Zero Mandarin-C is my favorite!), but the Blooming Youth Multi-Balm Stick is a total sleeper hit. This is one product you don’t want to miss out on. It may just be your winter skin savior (it’s already become mine!).
