I don’t know about you loves but I am not a massive fan of flying. I adore everything else about travelling but not the actual flight. I have a massive fear of flying and on top of that the air in the airplanes is so terrible and often makes me sick. The food does help a bit though, but in general – it’s not a fun experience for me at all! I don’t know if you’ve experienced this before but the air in the planes is really dry and it actually dehydrates your skin and makes it really dull and lifeless. Therefore, I like to take good care of my skin during the flight and make sure it’s nicely moisturized. Also, I almost never fly with makeup on and I usually slap on some mascara and concealer right before landing; this just helps me look a tad better, plus it helps me not panic that we’ll crash haha. With that said, I figured that it may be interested for you to see some of my in-flight beauty essentials that help me get through the whole flying process. Hope you’ll enjoy! :)
To start off with face cream, without a doubt the lucky winner has to be Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream. This is one of the best moisturizers I’ve tried! It really does give a brilliant moisture to the skin and makes it really soft and smooth. It doesn’t feel heavy or greasy at all and as mine is a mini size it’s perfect for the plane. As for eye cream, my Bioderma Sensibio Eye is perfect. It is lightweight and it hydrates the area really well. It looks great under concealer and it de-puffs and soothes as well. We don’t want to neglect our hands and cuticles, so a must-have for me is the Soap&Glory Hand Food cream (review here). This is my all time favorite hand cream as it does a fab job at hydrating and softening the skin and at the same time it doesn’t make your hands greasy as it sinks in instantly.
Makeup wise, I figured that the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm (review here) would be perfect to apply before landing, instead of foundation. This works wonders to my skin when it’s dull and tired. It perks it up and makes it so luminous and healthy. It adds some moisture and leaves the skin soft and smooth. Definitely check it out if you haven’t already as it’s brilliant and it looks wonderful underneath makeup too. Keeping up with the complexion theme, before landing I usually put on some concealer because it gives me more confidence and I love to cover up my dark circles. My flight to London was at 6:30am. so as you can imagine I had to take some actions hah. I love this travel size Benefin Boi-Ing concealer as it’s really creamy, provides amazing coverage and it doesn’t crease. Mascara is another one of those products that gives me huge confidence so I like to apply some before I arrive. I love how it opens up the look and makes you more awake and present. I opted for my babe – Too Faced Lashgasm (review here). It lengthens my lashes and gives them a nice volume. It doesn’t flake or cake and it’s really black, which I adore!
Last but not least, I have to moisturize my lips, as they get ridiculously dry during the flight. My favorite is the Yes To Carrots Lip Butter in Mint. I love this as it’s very hydrating and makes my lips really soft and smooth. What is cool about it is that it gives a lovely tingly feeling to the lips, which is super refreshing and cooling as well. Just the pick-me-up I need! For pretty much the same reason I chose this Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Darling Cherie (review here). The balm stains have built-in peppermint oil in them, which again feels nicely refreshing. The shade is a gorgeous cool toned lavender pink and it’s ideal for applying before landing. It gives me the right amount of color and I really recommend you checking this out, especially if you have pink undertones to your skin; it will compliment it beautifully! <3
Have you tried any of these products? Which are some of your in-flight beauty essentials?
Lots of love,
