7 Carry On Essentials

Whether it’s a splash in the Indian Ocean, a walk down the beach in Bali or even just a nice stay-cation in your home town, here are 7 Items that every Damsel should have in her carry on when hopping around the world.

 

1. Evian Facial Water Spray:ย Not only do I chug water when I’m on a plane to prevent dehydration, but I literally spray water mist on my face to keep my skin looking dewy for landing.

2. Carmex: Without a doubt, my lips always get chapped when I’m in transit and the only {and I mean only} lip balm that does the trick on my lips is Carmex. Can’t leave home without it!

3. Advil: Nothing is worse than being stuck on a plane with a migraine. I swear by Advil so it’s has to be in my carry on bag at all times.

3. Journal for Jotting: There’s something about being up in the air that inspires creativity. On long haul flights, my favorite thing to do is order a glass of wine, turn on some tunes and write in my journal.

4. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray: My hair falls flat. So, the minute the plane hits the ground, this spray hits my hair to add volume. Plus it smells fantastic!

5. Kai Travel Lotion: The smell of Kai Lotion puts me in insta-vacation mode plus packing perfume means you have to check a bag. I actually got this entire travel set from Kai and absolutely love it!

7. Clinique Eye Cream: As odd as it sounds, the area under my eyes gets really puffy and dry when I fly. As a preventative, I sneak to the bathroom mid flight and apply some of my favorite eye cream.

  • Oh the evian spray is something I need. I’m moving to London for work from the US and will be traveling a lot within the UK and mainland Europe… will definitely have to give these a go. x

  • Seconded on the eye cream! It helps so much in looking awake when you land!

  • This is kind of random, but I carry that Carmex lip balm during long runs because my lips dry out significantly while running and that stuff is easy to apply while running. Plus, it can pull double duty if there is an unfortunate chaffing issue.

  • When I flew to Florida, I went looking for advice like this. I’ve been making my own list, these are great suggestions. Thank you so much for the advice!

    I totally agree about the Evian spray- love that stuff! But, although I like the scent of the Kai lotion, I have sat next to people who have used scented lotions before, and I have literally felt sick for the rest of the flight!! I just think it is a common courtesy not to wear anything scented (other than deodorant) while stuck in tight quarters with others. Just something to think about!

  • Awesome picks! It’s always super important to stay hydrated on long haul flights!

  • Girl you are speaking my language! I love that journal and treasure all of the ones I’ve taken on past trips – there is something about a handwritten chronicle of a trip that brings back so many memories. Thanks as well for the tip about the eye moisturizer – I never thought of bringing one on the plans but that’s a great suggestion!

  • Such a great list of essentials! Bringing a journal/book to the plane is a must for me!

  • I need to try the Evian mist, Oribe texturizing spray and the Kai lotion… oh my! I also like the idea of journaling on a plane. I tend to use that time to catch up on novels, but it would be a great time for reflecting as well.
