London In-Flight Beauty Essentials

In-Flight Beauty Essentials

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,

  1. I used to hate flying and maybe I still do a little but I've flown to China and back in a 11+8 hour flight you just have to deal with it! :) So all I can tell you is that is going to get better the more you fly!

    Lovely selection for goodies, as always sweet! I'm the same and do not wear too much make before and after the flight but apply some when you get to the hotel :)

    That hand cream!? It's everywhere and I need to get my hands in it!

    Great post, lovely and have a great London trip. It's one of my favourite places :) Not jealous at all (Sarcams is in the air)

  8. I think with flying you either love it or hate it. Such a shame you don't enjoy it, just adds stress to your journey! Hand food is a must though, best Soap & Glory product. I need to try Yes To Carrots lip butter, best product name ever?! Haha.

  13. I totally share the same sentiment with flying! Especially if you could hear the plane buzzing and in turbulence and all that! It scares the crap out of me haaha. It doesn't matter how many times I've been on a plane, still gives me the creeps!

  14. I have never been afraid of flying and being in the airport used to be my favorite part of the trip, haha. For some reason, on my recent trip, I just about had a panic attack when we hit a stretch of turbulence. I had to force myself to calm down and it was awful - it's just about the worst because you can't really remove yourself from the situation. I imagine a small routine like this helps keep you calm :) I never think to bring moisturizing products with me as I never really thought about what the flight air does to my skin. Hope you're enjoying your time in London! I love the journal you have in the background :)

  19. Fortunately I have no problems with flying at all, I'm really so thankful for that. I've never been on a flight that took longer than two hours I think so I didn't have too many problems with dehydrated skin and the moisturiser I put on in the morning was sufficient.
    What I did when I flew to London was wearing my contacts. BIG mistake but I had to because of space problems in my bag *ahem*. Glasses would have been so much more comfy!

  20. I like to have a little bottle of hydrating mist. I know some people argue that it's not really hydrating and that it does the opposite, but during or after a flight I think it's such a relief! I also like to bring fuzzy socks, makes me feel like I'm in my living room ;)
