"Have Beauty, Will Travel"

I opened up the pages of one of my favorite artsy fashion publications, the up-and-coming Zink! magazine, to find them spotlighting not one, but two product lines we carry here at the Troc! Both were featured in an editorial spotlighting travel-sized beauty products (because, let's face it, those one-time hotel shampoos and awfully perfumed soaps just don't cut it.)

The first brand, Ole Henrickson, is a natural anti-aging skincare line created by the top beauty expert and spa-owner of the same name. Among the products featured in Zink! is the Natural Hair Wash with Sea Kelp, a gentle shampoo that moisturizes and nourishes hair with hydrating tropical extracts like plumeria and orchid. Both the shampoo and the conditioner are on sale at Trocadero for $24 each (but we're currently running a buy one, get one 1/2 off special!)

Other amazing Ole Henrickson products in-store include the Sheer Transformation cream ($48), a light oil-free formula that smoothes facial lines and helps makes skin discolorations and sun damage disappear without harsh chemicals, and my personal favorite, the Apricot Cleansing Lotion ($24). I'm notoriously guilty of not fully removing my makeup before bed, but this soft cleanser with a light, clean scent gets rid of even the most persistent water-proof makeup.

All of the Ole Henriksen products are on sale, so it's definitely worth stopping by to test out the brand hailed by celebrities like Naomi Campbell, Ralph Fiennes, Renee Zellweger, and Christy Turlington.


The second line, Korres, uses super high-quality plant extracts and leaves out all the unnecessary synthetic ingredients, leaving it with an all-natural formula that's amazing for your skin. Spotlighted in Zink! is one of the adorable travel sets, and Trocadero just so happened to get a shipment of all sorts of these little darlings just yesterday! We've got the Yoghurt, Guava, and Quince travel-size body butters, all of which are nutrient-rich balms made with real shea butter and avocado, sunflower and almond oils($10 a piece!). They're the perfect size to throw in your suitcase for a holiday vacation or as a last-minute stocking stuffer.

The travel/gift sets are true skincare gems, and Trocadero has plenty to choose from. Those loyal to the body butters can purchase a set of Guava, Quince and Fig($27) or seek a bit more spice in the Vanilla Cinnamon gift set ($23), featuring extra-moisturizing body milk and shower gel. My personal favorite is the Guava Travel Set (a steal at $20), an all-body combo of shower gel, body butter and their incredible lip butter. Just putting on the tropical-scented body butter is a vacation in itself. (Of course, if you find yourself obsessed with these products, we've got the full-size versions as well.)
If you've got any last-minute holiday shopping to do, or you just want to pick up some great travel-sized beauty products for your trip out of town, make sure to stop by or call us the Troc!
Happy Holidays!
