6 Survival Products for Fashion Week

Fashion week can be a blur of long days on your feet, running from show to show, with no time to rest. Learn how to make it through fashion week with these must-haves products from New York Institution and America’s oldest apothecary, C.O. Bigelow.


Tatcha Aburatorigami Japanese Beauty Papers ($12)

Authentic aburatorigami was originally created by gold leaf artisans and discovered by geisha in the 1800’s for its skin benefits. These all-natural leaflets are powder free, fragrance free and handmade. They are suitable for all skin types.



Frais™ Hand Santizer Pocket Size 0.2 oz bottle ($3.50)

*Frais’ popular mid-sized luxury hand sanitizer is a must. Frais Everyday is the perfect size for handbags or briefcases, to carry in the car and to share with friends at restaurants, parties or fashion week events. Feel protected everyday with a naturally moisturizing eco-friendly hand sanitizer big enough to take care of you and your friends.

*Frais Hand Sanitizer adds luxury to the smart practice of regular hand sanitizing. The elegant Les Huit mélange of eight natural Australian-blended essential oils conjures uplifting thoughts and leaves hands pleasantly moisturized, while 66% high grade eco-friendly sugarcane alcohol kills 99.9% of germs on contact.

*Frais contains only natural non-toxic ingredients and is approved by dermatologists. According to the CDC, 80% of all infections are transmitted by the hands. The CDC attests that this concentration of ethyl alcohol helps control germs such as influenza, the common cold, tuberculosis, salmonella, bird flu, MRSA staph, swine flu, and others.



Go Smile – Smile Whitening Light ($198)

Smile Whitening Light brings whitening technology into the home for do-it-yourself convenience and value. You can now perform your own customized, light-assisted teeth whitening treatments anytime, anywhere! Smile Whitening Light was specifically engineered to boost the stain-fighting power of our patented whitening ampoules. Used together, you can achieve a visibly whiter smile in just one sitting! The lightweight, elegantly shaped device is easy to hold and the detachable and washable mouthpiece fits comfortably between lips, helping the light reach all visible tooth surfaces. A built-in timer lets you know when each pass is over–three passes are one treatment. Smile Whitening Light was scientifically designed to deliver the optimal range of light wavelengths at the right power and placement to efficiently activate the whitening ingredient in the ampoules. Stains are visibly reduced in as little as 30 minutes.



L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hair Spray – Supreme Hold ($13)

Elnett Very Volume is enriched with Pro-Keratin and helps to create effortless volume for hairstyles that hold. Its unique micro-diffused spray is ultra-fine and disappears at the stroke of a brush.

C.O. Bigelow Mentha Tingling Foot Cream # 1418 ($14)

Our super-infused daily foot treatment provides moisture and comfort for tired and abused feet. Our invigorating ultra-minty formula blends aloe and peppermint to cool feet and check foot odor creating the ultimate foot cream.



Kneipp Lavender Balancing Herbal Bath ($5 for .68 fl oz)

*Balancing – Helps combat fatigue, relaxes and brings about a peace of mind.

*Known for its balancing effects, this aroma intensive bath treatment helps to combat mental and physical fatigue.

      That smile whitening is from GoSmile. I haven’t tried it but I know it’s also sold at Sephora and Sephora.com. I’ve tried their other products but wasn’t really into it.
