Indulgent in-flight essentials to keep you gorgeous and glowing in the air
Forget those scratchy viscose numbers they throw in next to your headphones and try this slinky Holistic Silk number on for size. One side is silk, the other deliciously soft velvet, ensuring every inch of light is blocked out while the natural lavender centre soothes you into a restorative beauty slumber.
Humidity in an aircraft cabin is on par with the Sahara Desert, but Omorovicza’s Essentials Kit (in a security-friendly clear bag) will kick dehydration’s behind. Once on board, slather Rejuvinating Night Cream on your face and neck to create a protective barrier and top up moisture levels with Queen of Hungary Mist during your flight. Once you arrive, follow the whole four-step regime to keep skin supple and soft throughout your sojourn.
You might be wondering how special a lip balm can really be? Well, when it comes to Hourglass No28 Lip Treatment Oil, the answer is very. Lips need special protection from dehydration too, and, aside from the immense pleasure of using the 24 karat gold plated applicator, this luxurious blend of oils, botanicals and potent active ingredients work hard to keep lips feeling marshmallow-soft and nourished in transit.
Some things are just not okay in the confined space of an aircraft cabin, and spraying perfume is definitely one of them. Instead, refresh your scent and avoid getting up your neighbours’ noses with this cute roll-on oil fragrance, Bal D’Afrique, inspired by Paris in the 1920s with revitalising notes of lemon and neroli and a Morrocan Cedarwood base.
Okay, so you may not have much use for the hot water bottle (although it can get a bit chilly up at 40,000 feet) but as a marriage of style and comfort, Bamford’s Travel Set is pretty darn faultless. Here you have a snuggly blanket, cosy socks, an eye mask and hot water bottle, all decked out in velvety soft organic cashmere – need we say more?
As you might expect from moisturising masters Creme De La Mer, The Hand Treatment is a real class act. Containing the brand’s famed marine-based hydrating formula, this rich yet mystifyingly absorbent cream locks in moisture, while potent antioxidant-packed botanicals get to work brightening skin tone and preventing further damage from the elements.
