Every traveler wants to step off a plane looking fresh, but let's face it: even an hour in the air can leave skin dehydrated, oily, and lackluster. I know I always feel the need to dash to the nearest restroom for touch-ups before meeting family or friends in baggage claim. Luckily, Kiehl's wants to relieve us of in-flight beauty stress with their new set of travel essentials, which includes a "First Class" Purifying Hand Treatment, In-Flight Refreshing Facial Mist, Eucalyptus Lip Relief, and Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
T+L Editorial Intern Helen Zook shares her take.
The Product: Kiehl's Travel Tested Solutions Set, $49. Available now exclusively at Neiman Marcus.
Pros: The masters of moisturizer have done it again, creating products that are super hydrating without feeling greasy. My favorite? The Purifying Hand Treatment, a cream-gel hybrid that made my skin noticeably more hydrated, smooth, and clean—thanks to some heavy-duty ingredients. Vitamin-rich Cactus Flower helps retain moisture while Tibetan Ginseng provides antioxident protection. The former grows in extreme drought conditions and the latter in high altitudes, making them the perfect antidotes to adverse cabin conditions. Each product is also infused with Lavender, Geranium, and Rosemary essential oils, which have a soothing scent and a regenerative effect—not to mention help ward off in-flight germs. Skin-care benefits aside, the products come in an über-chic canvas pouch that's perfect to carry-on.
Cons: The facial mist has a wide reach—seatmates be warned.
The verdict: Say good-bye to in-flight dryness!
