On Tuesday, I returned to New York after three weeks away from the city. During that stretch, I drove 800-ish miles and took three flights, two of which were to Los Angeles and back across the country. Basically, I spent a decent portion of June greasy as all hell, doing my best to remain cool, calm and collected despite being pent up in a motorized box for the better part of 27 hours. If not for my secret weapon, Avene's Thermal Spring Water, my skin would've had a field day.

A former boss of mine swore by her Evian Mineral Water Spray, but I never tried the stuff until I got my hands on Avene's $18.50 version. The thermal spring water spritz is incredibly pleasant on all levels, and floats on like an aromatic tuft of wind. During the multiple plane rides and singular road trip, I sprayed it on every three hours or so, relieving my face of gunk while leaving behind a fresh, dewy scent. Honestly, is it not the most luxurious thing to douse oneself with a refreshing facial spray? And at not even $20 a pop, this bottle will last for many cross-country journeys to come.
