I. Hate. Airplanes. Although traveling is one of my favorite things to do, the cramped seating arrangements, dirty smell, and general ick make the flying experience less than desirable. Luckily, the beauty loving side of me is able to scrounge my room for pleasant, pass-time activities to make flying a tad bit better.
Starting, I am a child. Therefore, my iPad Mini must always be at grabs for some dished out magazine reading (I lurrrvee Allure magazine) or for some Candy Crush Saga (I told you I'm a child). When it comes to snacks, they're like a pacifier. This time, I picked up a packet of dried apricots and a tin of Ice Breakers Sours - I'll try to refrain myself from having more than one.
Onto more of the beauty related items (because I know that's what you're here for), my main mission, besides passing level 23 of Candy Crush - ugh, is to hydrate. When my lips are as dry as the Sahara Desert, the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm is the only thing that sorts them out. Along with my lips, I'm sure you're aware of my dehydrated skin situation. Although the peachy scent and über glowy outcome is pretty irresistible everyday, using the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask as a travel, post-flight pick up is basically essential (if you're feeling adventurous, then go ahead and use it in flight).
Continuing with the moisture quenching, my pre-sleep staple is squeezed then slathered onto the hands - the L'occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. It sinks in quickly sans stickiness, so you'll be able to get back to the Candy Crush sooner rather than later. Although the hand cream smells of lavender, for a slightly more pungent, airplane masking scent, I've relied on the Couture Fragrance from Juicy Couture. Not too sweet, yet still slightly fruity, it's not my favorite scent of all time, but I had the roller ball hanging around and it's uplifting powers worked their magic.
Prepare for take off, ladies and gents, as you've got all the inflight essentials to keep the ride pain free and beauty-centric. See you at your destination...
