InstaBeauty: August 2015 Edition

Can you believe it's the last day of August already and fall is just around the corner?!

The free flights we booked through Aeroplan points somewhat make up for the terrible exchange rate—but they also mean long stop-overs and awkward hours in economy class. To make coach feel a little more luxe, I'm stashing these items in my carry-on to keep my skin happy and hydrated, and my spirits up.
