Hello My Lovelies!
Hope you're all keeping well? If you follow me on social media, you will probably know I've recently booked a holiday with Daniel to go back to Dubai and I couldn't be more excited! We got engaged at the ATLANTIS last year and even though it was always our intention to celebrate our one year anniversary in Dubai, it seemed that work commitments were more than likely going to get in the way for both of us. I have been lucky enough to visit the Atlantis in the Bahamas a few times and the Atlantis Palm did not disappoint. The hotel staff made us truly feel like royalty back in 2015 and I'm so excited to go back and enjoy another blissful holiday in paradise. Because we hadn't booked up early like we had hoped prices for Dubai literally sky rocketed, but luckily about two weeks ago there was a flight sale, which brought the overall price down by a few hundred pounds per person! I thought I would share a few of my long-haul beauty essentials in preparation for the flight, which is around 7 hours and 30 minutes. I will be following up with two more posts on what to pack for a holiday to Dubai and also some of my favourite places to visit and stay.
Love them or hate them, When you're 30,000 + foot up in the sky they are a must. Perfect for removing make-up, freshening up or wiping away any spillages. I love the Simple Micellar Wipes, which I find work really well and leave my skin feeling completely happy. My out flight is a night flight, so as soon as the lights dim my make-up will come off.
This is where your sample size products will hopefully come in handy. I have a stash of hydrating moisturisers including a handy sample of my favourite Clinique Moisture Surge Treatment. Flying can seriously mess around with your skin, so keeping it hydrated is key to staying comfortable throughout your flight, especially when flying long haul. I will definitely be taking my Clinique Moisture Surge on the plane with me, as it can be used as a moisturiser, a midday boost over makeup, or as a super hydrating mask.
I've always been a huge fan of spritzing my face, especially on a long flight, which can make your skin feel tight. The Bloom and Blossom Rejuvenating Facial Spritz has a total of 11 all natural ingredient, which are known for reducing dark circles, lines and giving you a fresh and brightened complexion.
Most of my readers know that sleeping isn't my forte, especially not on a long haul flight. An eye-mask is a great way to block out the light and to keep jetlag and bay. The Holistic Silk Mask is infused with lavender, which is the perfect way to help you get a few Zzz whilst flying!
Like your skin, your lips will suffer whilst flying, so I would always recommend taking a lip balm on a flight with you even if it's not long haul. I'm currently obsessed with the BEE Good lip balm, which has the perfect consistency and is not at all sticky making it your best friend whilst up in the air!
Last but not least, I always carry on a highlighter/concealer to help rejuvenate my peepers after a long flight. I will usually have a sample size of eye-cream somewhere in my carry on, but for me there is nothing worse than looking tired... after all the eyes are the window to your soul! The Burberry Concealer has been a favourite of mine, since I purchased it before my trip to Dubai in 2015! It's light yet perfecting consistency makes it perfect for refreshing your complexion after long flight.
I hope you have enjoyed this post lovelies! I forgot to include that I usually take a de-stressing roll on for my plus points, as I get pretty nervous whilst flying - Does anyone else feel the same? If so, I would seriously recommend trying the NEOM Real Luxury De-Stress roll on.
I would love to hear from you in the comments section below, what are your in-flight essentials?
I will also be posting about what to pack for Dubai, as well as my favourite places to visit and stay whilst there!
Lots of Love
