达斯汀?霍夫曼夫人的旅行护肤经

  利萨·霍夫曼(LisaHoffman)当然没有说嫁给一位电影明星有多么艰辛——是的,她嫁给了达斯汀·霍夫曼(DustinHoffman)。不过,她倒是表示,当从一个地方搬到另一个地方时,打包是件很难的事,尤其是护肤品。

  “我的化妆包不够大——我不得不减少化妆品。”她说道:“我要作大量的旅行,因为我和达斯汀希望一家人能够呆在一起。在一个地方总是待不长——比如说,拍《雨人》(RainMan)的时候,我们在一个城市待了4天,然后在另一个城市又待了一周,接着又再另一个城市待了三周。旅行总是不断。我已经是打包方面的专家了,但总是在护肤品上费尽周折。”

  多数旅行者,尤其是女性,会理解这个问题——特别是当我们在现代化的、安全级别最高的机场里拿着手提行李的时候。要飞离英国似乎尤其棘手。现在你可以携带液体登机了,但可带的东西有限,必须装在一个透明小塑料袋里,而且瓶子的容积不能超过100毫升。

  现在还很少有哪个品牌认真对待这个问题。举个例子吧,兰蔻(Lanc?me)虽然有一些很好的旅行装产品,但它们都是150毫升装的,只能装在行李中托运。

  BobbiBrown公司为那些不愿意和自己最喜爱的产品分开的人提供了一种特别新颖便利的解决方法:一个透明的塑料包,再加上一些微型塑料瓶、一个漏斗、抹刀,还有标签,这样,你就能把自己喜欢的产品倒到这些小瓶里。在最近的一次旅行中,我尝试了一下,非常有趣,不过需要手巧一点,很像以前在学校里上的化学课,只是没有实验用的本生灯(Bunsenburner)。一定要记得,在倒卸妆液的时候(如果是油质卸妆液的话),先把它摇匀。

  利萨·霍夫曼做的更好:她创建了自己的旅行装护肤系列,全部用的是她自己的资金。她是在梦中想到这一创意。这是一个“非常特别、很神经质的梦,我梦到自己正更加轻松地将我的护肤品打包——最终产品与我画出来的几乎一模一样。”这发生在7年前。两年前,她开始推进这一项目,其产品于去年10月份在美国上市,在HarveyNichols和巴黎的Colette等全球各大商店里出售,在网上也有销售(目前还无法在网上填写国际订单,但霍夫曼希望这种情况将很快改变)。

  利萨·霍夫曼的产品,最出色之处在于简单。目前她推出了5种产品——洁面乳、爽肤水、保湿霜、眼霜、护唇精华液——为方便使用,其命名和序号都是从1至5。更好的是,这些产品都是旅行装(使用可回收的塑料瓶包装),其份量刚好够一次使用,并且所有产品按使用顺序互相连在一起。此外还有日用和夜用产品,每种产品都被包装在一个日用包内,可以单独购买(20美元),或是购买7件套盒装(120美元)。

  我对新的面霜相当谨慎——我试用过许多面霜。而我喜欢带上自己特别青睐的产品,特别是在旅行的时候。这就像是在其它一切事物都非常陌生的时候,将家的一部分带在身边。但最近出门在外时,我喜欢上了这些护肤品。甚至在一天结束之后,我的皮肤看上去如此洁净和娇嫩,以至于我在出门时几乎都不用带上常用的蜜粉饼刷。这些产品成份中的薰衣草、摩洛哥洋甘菊和甜杏仁油等精油的气味几乎令人上瘾。幸好霍夫曼也意识到这点。这些产品还提供大瓶的包装,以备你旅行返家之后使用。

  Lisa Hoffman certainly doesnt claim that it has been anyhardshipto be married to a movie star (yes, thats Dustin). Butshe doesclaim it has been hard to pack when travelling fromlocation tolocation, particularly skincare.

  “The size of my toiletry bags were embarrassing – I had tocutthat down,” she says. “I did an enormous amount of travellingasDustin and I wanted to keep our family together. It wasntalwaysfor a long time – for example, for Rain Man it was four daysin onecity, then a week in another, then three weeks in another.Itsconstant travel. I became an expert packer but alwaysstruggledwith skincare.”

  Most travellers, especially women, will understand theproblem,especially when it involves hand luggage at our modern,maximumsecurity airports. Flying out of the UK seems particularlytricky.You can now take liquids on board but are limited to thecontentsof one small see-through plastic bag and bottles no largerthan100ml.

  Few brands have quite got to grips with this yet. Lanc?me,forinstance, has fancy travel-size products but they come in150mlsizes, which are only good for hold luggage.

  Bobbi Brown has a quirky and easy solution for those who wontbeparted from their favourite products: a clear plastic bagcompletewith miniature plastic bottles, a funnel, spatula andlabels sothat you can decant your old faithfuls. I tried this for atriprecently and it was quite fun to do, if a bit fiddly, much likeanold chemistry class at school, minus the Bunsen burner. Justremrto shake your make-up remover (if it contains oils)beforedecanting it.

  Hoffman went one better: she created her own rangeoftravel-friendly skincare, all personally financed. The idea cametoher in a dream. It was a “really specific, neurotic dream thatIwas making my skincare packing much easier. I woke up and drewthepackaging – the ultimate product is almost exactly what Idrew.”That was seven years ago. Two years ago, she started on theprojectand it launched in the US in October and is available instoresworldwide including Harvey Nichols and Colette in Paris aswell asonline (currently international orders cant be filled onthe netbut Hoffman hopes this will change soon).

  The beauty of Hoffmans range is its simplicity. There arefiveproducts – cleanser, toner, moisturiser, eye cream, lip serum–named and also numbered one to five for ease of use. Betteryet,they come in travel size ampoules (made of recyclable plastic)thatcontain just enough for one application and all come attachedtoeach other in the order in which they should be used. On topofthat, there is a day and night range and one of each is packagedina daily use bag, which can be bought singly (£14/$20) or in aboxof seven “packettes” (£80/$120)

  Im pretty fussy about new creams – I try a lot of them. AndIlike my favourite products, especially when travelling. Itslikecarrying a piece of home with you when everything elseisunfamiliar. But I loved these when I was on the road recently.Evenafter one day, my skin looked so clear and blooming that Ialmostwent without my usual brush of facial bronzing powder. Andthesmell of the oils such as lavender, Moroccan chamomile andsweetalmond in the ingredients is almost addictive. Luckily,Hoffman hasthought of that too. The products are also available infull sizeversions for when you return home.
