I got to thinking, if the Hubs and I were to jump on a plane today to go on vacation what beauty items would I have to have with me…and then I got to thinking “Oh crap I don’t even know what sizes I could actually get on the plane with!” So after some pondering and some rule reading I came up with this list of 5 Must Haves for Your Carry-On.
Carry-On TSA Requirement
Before we get into what you should bring, let’s discuss how it should be brought. All liquids, creams, gels, etc. should be stored in your carry-on in the 3-1-1 method as suggested by the TSA. But what is the 3-1-1 method, you may be asking. The 3-1-1 method essentially means that each liquid, cream, gel, etc. that you bring MUST be 3.4 oz. or less, must be stored in a 1 quart zip topped clear bag, and you may only have one of these per person. Also, this bag should be placed in the plastic bin when you go through the metal detectors before being placed back into your carry-on.
Emybrolisse Moisturizer || A face moisturizer is a must have on an airplane in my opinion. The recycled air can really dry you out, especially on a long flight, so having something to keep your face moisturized is a must. You can purchase a 1 oz. bottle of this, which meets the requirements of the TSA, for $16.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment || To go along with the dryness of you face, your lips are probably going to get dry and chapped as well. A hydrating lip balm is another must and the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment is one of my favorites as it keeps lips hydrated for a long time, which means less times applying, and it smells like lemons! Due to this being a lip balm you can actually just keep this in your purse instead of your carry-on.
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream || Keeping with the dry skin theme, your hands might get dry and icky as well. A good hand cream will go a long way to combat that, however, you don’t want to get one that is heavily scented, especially in a closed-up space like an airplane. The L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream has a hint of shea butter scent but not enough to be off putting to the people next to you, plus it’ll leave your hands silky smooth. You can purchase a 1 oz. tube of this, which meets the requirements of the TSA, for $12.
Neutrogena Travel Makeup Wipes || Towards the end of your flight you’re probably going to want to wipe all that grime off before getting off the plane and meeting the world. A good way of doing that is by keeping a pack of traveling makeup remover wipes in your handbag. Here’s a secret: I use makeup remover wipes for everything! Sticky or dirty hands? Totally just grab a wipe out of my bag. Face dirty but no makeup on? Grab a makeup remover wipe and clean it off. A small pack of makeup remover wipes would be a lifesaver for me on a place. With these, I’d just keep them in my purse.
Mac Mini Fix || After you’ve pulled off all the dirt and grime you’ll probably need a pick-me up to revitalize your face, and yourself. Mac Fix+, which a lot of people use as a setting spray, is loaded with vitamins, minerals, green tea, and a few other things and is spray that you can just mist over your face. Mac makes a travel-friendly version of this in a 1 oz. bottle, which meets the requirements of the TSA, for $10.
