Traveling is a part of my monthly agenda, whether it’s for work or leisure. For each trip, I always bring my favorite on-flight essentials. I’ve been asked what I usually take on my flights, so I thought I might as well make a post and share my go-to items…
Carry on: Britto Hearts Carnival
If there’s one thing to invest in, it’s a carry on as it’s an essential item when traveling. It’s actually super durable and of course chic, which also helps whenever I need to check it in as it’s easy to find. It also fits in the overhead cabins so that’s a plus. I love Romero Brito also, so the fact that the luggage is cute and travel ready is a plus!
Backpack: GG Blooms Backpack
This is probably one of my most extra items, but I love it. When looking for one, I had to remember everything I needed to fit in it: my laptop, camera, book, makeup bag, and some clothes. I saw this bag in the Gucci store when I was in Milan and just fell in love. It was the perfect size, and I knew I could use it on all my trips and stay looking fabulous.
Lips: Balm Dotcom
Dehydration is the one thing I face when traveling, so I see keeping a bottle of water on the flight also a key to flying. Keeping my lips hydrated is also important so I use Glossier’s Balm Dotcom. It’s a long-lasting and multipurpose lip balm that has antioxidants to nourish and repair dry skin. My favorite is the Birthday flavor.
Being on a 15 hour flight can be brutal and rough on your skin. This Korean green tea cleansing stick is the perfect travel item and is an all-in-one cleanser. It has 13 natural oils to breakdown makeup, green tea leaves to exfoliate and a low ph to cleanse your skin. This will wash you of all that oil without drying your skin in the process, since it’s also a solid stick you know it won’t explode in your luggage.
Skin: L’Occitane Hand Cream
Going back to the dryness accompanied with flying, I always bring a small hand cream to help moisturize in flight. This is one of my favorites as it quickly absorbs all dryness and doesn’t leave you with sticky oily hands. It also smells good, so that’s a plus!
This is a must for red-eye trips as those under-eye bags can sneak up on you quick. I keep this concealer in my makeup bag along with my cleansing stick, balm, and hand cream. It’s very slim and has high coverage so it’s great for traveling.
Facial Mask: Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Sheet Mask
This is a travel must, especially on those long flights. Infused with natural aloe vera extract, phytocollagen, and vitamin e, it soothes dryness, hydrates, and revitalizes your skin. The best part is that it’s 100% cruelty-free.
