In-flight Essentials: Perfecting Your On-Board Survival Kit

After so many years travelling on the beauty circuit, I think I have finally perfected the art of the on-board survival kit.

I am always updating it with new arrivals and my latest finds are sitting primed and ready for take off.

First and foremost I am obsessed with wipes and the Palmer’s Moisturizing Facial Wipes are not exception.


They fit the bill, as they are double sided: one side cleanses and the other lightly exfoliates; they also remove waterproof mascara as well as moisturise; almost too good to be true.

Next in line, and weighing in at just 30mls, is Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Perfecting Facial Oil.

And for touch down, a handy little tube of Palmer’s Color Correcting CC Cream with SPF 15 is the perfect lightweight base to smooth out skin tone and give a much-needed boost to tired looking skin.
