If you need a reason to be thankful, it's that the travel industry has officially evolved way, way past the days of two-in-one Pert Plus or off-brand shampoo mini bottles in the bathrooms. All your wishes on lost eyelashes as a result of subpar soap must have worked, because modern boutique and luxe hotels are now offering over-the-top luxe beauty amenities standard to their guests. The industry has caught on to the fact that jetsetters with a deep desire for pillowtop mattresses and Frette linens also take the best possible care of their appearance. For true seekers of luxury — when it comes to both travel and beauty — we rounded up the most reliably luxe hotel beauty amenities for you to enjoy whenever you hit the road next.
