1.A Lano leave-on flyer mask formulated with lanolin, mint, caffeine, and ginger. In English? That means that your skin will be hydrated, dewy, clean-feeling, and awake — in spite of the fact that you had to leave your home at 3AM for the budget red-eye flight you booked.
2.A hydrocolloid COSRX pimple patch because what do we want joining us on our Italian vacation we’ve been planning for months? Not a zit. Slap this baby on during your flight to reduce painful pimple swelling and make it practically non-existent.
3.A jade roller said to promote circulation, tighten skin, and help with lymphatic drainage. You know how your feet get gloriously swollen while flying? The same thing kind of happens to your face. Use this handy tool to help remain de-puffed.
4.A Burt’s Bees lip balm that provides moisture (thanks to a blend of shea butter and botanical waxes) as well as a buildable tint, meaning your pout will be soft and supple while a touch of color adds some life back into your exhausted face. Red eyes, am I right?
5.Eye masks that will de-puff, moisturize, and brighten even the darkest of eye circles. Traveling may wreak havoc on both your sleep schedule and your complexion, but pop these on whilst enjoying your in-flight pretzels to look as if you got a full eight hours of restful sleep,
6.Mini Wet Brush brushes designed with flexible bristles to detangle your (very tangled) 'do without painfully pulling chunks of hair out in the process. Goodbye, in-flight knots that have mysteriously appeared even though I haven’t moved my head in…several hours.
7.A lightweight SPF18 tinted moisturizer (from the Balm Cosmetics) to give you some of that sweet, sweet coverage without feeling like you have 19 pounds of foundation on your face. Consider your pores blurred, redness soothed, and blemishes all but invisible.
8.A TONYMOLY hydrating sheet mask for the brave musketeer who has absolutely no problem looking like a movie monster while sitting in economy. Not only will this mask moisturize tired skin, but it’s also infused with lavender — the kind of aroma that could lull you to sleep despite alarmingly bad turbulence.
9.An Invisibobble you’ll want to start carrying around on your wrist ASAP. This genius accessory will keep your mane out of your face without causing any dents in the process. You’ll be able to take your hair out of your pony and BAM! It won’t look as if you had it in an updo for several hours.
10.A Mario Badescu facial spray that I’m not sure how you’re living without. This impressive blend of aloe, herbs, and rosewater can do everything from set and refresh makeup, give your complexion a dewy appearance, and wake up tired skin — the kind that was waiting in an airport for one million hours due to a delayed flight caused by “bad weather”.
11.Vitamin e-infused makeup wipes available in individually-sized packets, meaning you can stash one in your purse before boarding a flight to cleanse your face of dirt, oil, and makeup. All without having to ask the person in the aisle seat to get up so you can use the restroom! Skin = saved. Awkward ask of a stranger = avoided.
12.A cruelty-free Glossier brow gel because the eyes aren’t the window to the soul, it’s the eyebrows. This pomade formula will keep your brows in place while subtly filling them in, immediately giving your ensemble an air of ~I am put together can’t you see my brows look good~.
13.A three-in-one tint you can use as a highlighter, lip balm, and blush for a dewy, glowing complexion. This vegan and cruelty-free product contains coconut extract that makes it super hydrating, and is ideal for anyone who has plans immediately following the landing of their flight. Who's showing up to brunch with a plane hangover? Not you!
14.A Burt's Bees travel-sized kit that comes with everything you'll need for a luxe in-flight skincare routine: a milk and honey body lotion, a coconut foot cream, a soap bark and chamomile cleansing cream, a clary sage cleanser, a hydrating moisturizer, and a shea butter hand cream.
15.Mini hair pins to give you the ballerina bun of your Swan Lake-loving dreams. Just one of these little pins can do the work of up to *20* hair pins, meaning the joy of your in-flight movie won’t be ruined by excessive random pins digging into your scalp.
16.A Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream formulated with macadamia nut oil, shea butter, rosa hybrid extracts, and rosa gallica extracts because you are (hopefully) washing your hands a ton to avoid coming in contact with icky plane bacteria. What does that cause? Dry hands. This little tube will solve that problem.
17.Biodegradable body wipes made with tea tree oil, peppermint, aloe, and ginseng that will leave your skin feeling refreshed, clean, and not dry or sticky. Plus, they're lavender-scented which basically sets you up for ultimate relaxation.
18.An LA Girl Pro concealer here to banish blemishes, redness, and dark circles to the pits of Hades. Say hello to flawless coverage that is crease-resistant, long-lasting, and lightweight. This little tube is perfect to bring with you on-the-go, as just a little dab or two will cover any blemish you’re trying to, dare I say, conceal.
19.A paraben-free Bioderma moisturizing lipstick for long-lasting hydration that even the recycled air aboard the aeroplane won't be able to ruin. Long gone will be the days of you fishing through your overstuffed backpack because of your need to reapply.
20.A travel-sized Batiste dry shampoo capable of making your 'do look freshly-washed by the time you land at your destination. Grease? You don't know her. You're too busy traveling the world to even think about her.... *nervous giggle*
21.A matte Maybelline SuperStay liquid lipstick you can apply right before boarding an international flight — and it will still look great when you wake up on another continent. This magic stuff has a staying power of up to 16 hours, which means it must be the byproduct of some sort of sorcery. I know.
22.A hydrating Summer Fridays cream face mask created to give tired, dull, stressed skin some serious pampering. Pass that marriage certificate because you'll definitely say ~I dew~ to the glow that this little product can give. Another traveling perk? This totally doubles as an eye cream.
23.A spray hand sanitizer that kills — Destroys! Obliterates! — 99.99% of icky germs that cause all **cough cough, I can't come, I'm sick** situations. I'm sorry but planes breed bacteria. Disinfect everything. EVERYTHING.
