Up in the Air

I recently just got back from spring break and was flooded with pictures of friend's beach getaways and tropical adventures. I was jealous to say the least.

People I knew had gone as far as Punta Cana, Australia, and Thailand for two weeks of bliss while I was shivering in good ol' Virginia.

Aaanyways, enough with the wanderlust, the one thing we all had in common were the endless flights we all took.

So, I've popped together an 'Up in the Air' essentials guide to help you have the most relaxing flight (no matter the final destination).

Perfect to keep your toes toasty and moisturised (thanks to infused aloe vera) during those long flights where you just want to kick your shoes off and relax.

This BB Cream is already one of my favourite everyday products. It's especially necessary to use in place of foundation when flying to keep your skin from feeling heavy and dried out. If you're lucky enough to be going somewhere warm, the built-in SPF is an added bonus.

This eye mask is made of silk to keep from clogging your pores and infused with Banana and Cream to let you ease into sleep.

4) Ole Henriksen Face Wipes, $19 (30 wipes)
These luxurious cleansing wipes gently remove dirt and makeup as well as moisturize (with the help of essential fatty acids), all while smelling of citrus and vanilla. Perfect to freshen up your dehrydrated skin. If you need extra hydration, try Dermalogica Multi Active Toner

5) Bobble Water Bottle, $12.99 (34 oz)
Bring this empty water bottle through security then fill it fully before your flight to counteract dehydration (you're much more susceptible whilst flying). The built in filter means you don't have to worry about the quality of the water and sleek design makes it the perfect travel accessory.

6) Rollerball Scents, prices vary
I absolutely hate the smell of planes. These portable, unspillable fragrances are perfect to pop on right before you get off. Some of my favourites I've included are Lavanilla Pure Vanilla, Burberry Brit Sheer, and Frederic Malle Carnal Flower.

Let me know some of your travel essentials!

Love, Milly


  1. Nice list! It's making me want to get on a plane right now just so I can have that horrid groggy feeling and then blitz it with these beauties. Unfortunately I'm not a glamorous traveller and just get Ryanair flights between London and Milan. So my only travel essentials are my passport and a suitcase that is willing to close around at least twice its capacity xxx
