Airplane Travel Essentials ✈

So it’s came to that time where everyone is either going away on a holiday abroad or in their own country so maybe on a road trip, and I know I am, I’m going to Mexico in 19 days and this is why I thought I would supply you all with some of my essentials that I travel with either on a airplane.

I fly quite a lot so I have lots of essentials I have grown up to swear by as a great travelling essential which is why I thought I would tell you about them today.

iPhone & Camera 

Sometimes you don’t need to or wouldn’t want to bring your phone on holiday/vacation with you but for me it’s an essential as my phone has EVERYTHING on it. It has my music, a camera, my social media’s, games, etc. As much as my camera on my iPhone is still used, loads too take cute travelling selfies and pictures from my travels as maybe memories, for me it’s important I have my vlogging camera with me or my Go Pro Hero 4 so I can take memory’s with high quality or stuff for my job and hobby which is YouTube and Blogging.

Earphones/Headphones

My life, I like to think, is a massive music video. Music is one of the things I cannot live without, it makes me happy and there is so much music out their that suits all my different moods and I just cannot live without music. So especially when I’m bored or haven’t got anything better to do I love listening to music it’s like one of my favorite things and the only way I can do that if I’m on a plane or in public is by using my Beats Solo 2 in Pink or my Apple Earphones that came with my iPhone. I prefer to use my Beats but after a while I am fed up of having some giants headphones on my head which is then when I opt for my Apple Earphones as these are also a lot easier to use when I want to sleep.

Beauty & Skincare Essentials 

So as my flight is 10 hours long I think it’s an definite essential to have products that make me feel more refreshed and as airplanes are full of germs, and it’s a real pain for skin as the compressed air and high air conditioning can really dry skin out, it’s a definite for some good moisturizer for body, hands and face. Also some essentials for me are deodrant and body sprays or perfume. I have been on some really painful flights where I have literally felt like holding up air freshener up to my nose where the people next to me have smelt like a dead animal and it really isn’t nice and especially when your in a compact space such as a isle of seats in an airplane especially when you have to sit next to them for such a long flight or maybe short, if your lucky 🙂

Another essential for me is lip balm. I always have to have lip balm as it’s a real struggle for me when I have dry lips as they start to peel and it’s not nice at all and especially not on a flight which dry’s them out even more, so don’t forget that lip balm and keep your lips lovely and soft. Also an essential is something to cleanse my face with such as some micella water or face wipes or toner or even those Nivea facial mist’s, which are really nice to freshen up your face within a flight. It’s really important to keep your face clean and fresh when travelling as it makes you feel great and your skin also really benefits from some extra work when it’s needed. Something I also like to bring on a long haul flight, like the one upcoming for me, is a face mask. Whether it’s a liquid one or an actual mask, I love to bring myself to having one of these on a long flight as it really pampers the skin and if you can pick up the confidence to do one of these on a flight, you and your skin can really benefit.

Makeup Products

Sometimes when I am flying places I usually have somewhere to be after that or maybe I just want to apply some makeup in order for me to feel better about myself and make myself look at least one bit presentable. I only like to wear a bit of makeup after a flight while my skin is breathing or even non as it does really help but if I do I like to wear light products but things that still make me look awake and beautiful when really you should be looking like crap, especially after a long haul flight. One product I crave after a long haul flight for my base, instead as a foundation, I like to use either a BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer. My favorite is the Rimmel BB Cream which is lovely and light and has a good SPF coverage which also covers up all the blemishes and stuff on my face that shouldn’t be their. My second favorite is my Chanel CC Cream, which is on the expensive side which is why the Rimmel BB Cream comes a good dupe for a lower price range, but if you can afford to branch out to the Chanel it’s an amazing product as it gives an amazing coverage yet it still feels lovely and light feel to the skin and it also acts round to your skin tone which is perfect for me as I have very light skin which means there’s not many good matching colors out their for me.

Radox Feel Relaxed Bubble Bath

Now I always spend lots of money on Lush products and as much as I love them so much they can be very expensive to keep purchasing, especially if your like me and you have baths and relaxing nights VERY often.

So I thought of opting out on a bubble bath. I have tried loads, and I really mean that but yet non of them seemed to work as well as this one, the Radox Feel Relaxed Bubble Bath.

It’s a easy use bubble bath and creates bubbles almost instantly which is a really good feature of this bubble bath. Also the fact that I once had a bath for 3 hours in this bubble bath and the bubbles were still their and it still had this beautiful lavender, floral scent and left me feeling really relaxed and smelling lovely.

Now the best bit about this bubble bath is that it’s a common UK brand of body products so it’s something that can be found in any drugstores and superstores across the UK! Also at a really good affordable price. You also will get a lot for your money as not only is it really nice using but it’s a big amount and will last you long, because a tiny amount goes a long way.

June Fave’s 2015

So throughout the month of June I have been buying and trying so many new products and also been loving loads of items that I’ve bought so I thought I would talk about them and why their good. I also have a video on my June Fave’s on my YouTube channel so here is the link for that if you want to go check that out; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrShxSVF4rQ&feature=youtu.be 🙂

Every month I try and branch out my product knowledge and educate myself on all the wide range of products from makeup to skincare to hair care, etc. This June I loved these products particularly which is why I thought I would talk about them.

Naked Foundation

I actually already have a separate review on this foundation already on my blog so if you want to go check that out here is the link; https://hellagirlnicole.wordpress.com/2015/06/09/review-urban-decay-naked-skin-foundation/

Secret Deodorant

So while I was in America (late March, early April) I thought I would pick up some of the Secret Deodorants as lots of You Tubers and beauty/lifestyle bloggers rave about them. I picked up 2 Paris ones and a cocoa butter kiss one! They are by far the best deodorants I have ever used. When you apply it gives a lovely feel to the skin, their very moisturizing as well, and also stop me from being to sweaty but if I am it doesn’t smell at all and makes me still smells as fresh as I did when I first applied it.

Avon Care Glycerine Hand & Nail Cream

When I first bought this product in the early months of 2014, I didn’t really appreciate all the different products available and all of the amazing benefits a good hand cream can really do, I basically just bought this because I had some spare cash and it looked like a good enough product to buy. Lately, I have been so obsessed with this hand cream after placing it on my desk early June. It is so nourishing and moisturizing and really soaks into the skin fast and even faster when/if your hands are hot/warm. I thoroughly enjoy using this product and am pretty disappointed they don’t sell it anymore.

NYC Expert Last Lip Lacquer’s

 From watching videos all throughout early months of 2015 I saw in a lot of American Haul’s these New NYC Lippies and I instantly fell in love with all the colors they have. So as I was going to be travelling to America late March so I thought it was a must to pick a few of these up! I got the two shades ‘Lincoln Square Love Affair’ and ‘Fidi Fuchsia’. The consistency of these lip colors are amazing and give a really good long lasting color to the lips.

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Face Moisturizer & Wash

 I have another separate review/blog post on these products so go check that out as it has way more information on the products and the line of products they offer. Here is the link to go and hear more about that; https://hellagirlnicole.wordpress.com/?p=53&preview=true 🙂

Victoria’s Secret Escape Fragrance Mist

Back in America Victoria’s Secret is a much much bigger company than it is over here ( In the UK)  so they have much more stock and for me as I’m not into the whole ‘Underwear’ thing yet so when I’m in a store the fragrances are the only things I really go in for and buy nearly every time I’m in their which is why I have to refrain from going in their usually. But when I was in America I had to go and pick this spray up in ‘escape’ as it just smelt amazing and is by far my favorite body mist ever. It has a very late night, sunset, date kind of smell with loads of flowers and just sets this beautiful summer image in my head.

COVERGIRL Clump Crusher by Lashblast  

This is by far my favorite mascara in the world. Over nearly my whole life span I have been using mascaras and always trying new ones high-end and drugstore. Recently, again while in America, I had to make my appearance in one of the famous American drugstores Walgreen’s! As YouTube is my life, I almost always have a chance to find out about all the new popular products and this mascara was one of them I heard multiple people rave and go on about to many times I almost had to get it to see what all this fuss was about. Wow, I am so glad I picked this up as out of all my mascaras from ‘they’re real’ to ‘the rocket’ this is my best mascara. It gives amazing volume to your lashes with a beautiful strong black color as I got mine in ‘very black’. It also gives me no clumps and a really good lash length while also being a very cheap/affordable mascara.

Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint

Throughout the upcoming months I have this inspiration of bold bright fun lips for the summer and this was just waiting for me to purchase at such a low price! It has easy instructions on easy use on the product and the product itself is such a nice build-able color. It definitely is quite light for first appliance but you can build it up to a brighter color really easily and have the option of keeping in matte or adding some shine and texture with the lip balm on the other end which comes with the product.

L’Oreal Studio Heat Protection Spray 

Only throughout this past year I have discovered how important heat protectors really are and all the wide rang of different ones there are for different uses but all do the most important job which is protecting your hair from the heat you put it through daily (for me anyway)! As my hair is so short I have grown up with having it always straitened as that’s the nicest look for my hair and even in primary school my mother every morning would sit their and spend at most 5 mins straightening my hair so it became almost something I always had to do which is why my hair is so bad now which is also why I had to start using a heat protector. This one is great because it protects my hair, and helps with my go-to hairstyle which is washing it in a morning then blow-drying it and then straightening it and it helps so well with that as it is meant for having your hair straight daily.

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Cleanser & Moisturizer

I love this skincare range so much. For nearly years now I have been obsessed trying to find a good brand and line of products I can use for my skincare and facial routine. I have came across brands such as simple which I found was to ‘cheap’ feeling, clean & clear which was just too heavy and didn’t have the results I was looking for such as many other drugstore skincare brands. I wanted something not high-street as that’s way to expensive especially for my young skin as most of the high-street products a bit to heavy and aimed for an older age group, so I wanted something in the middle of High-End and Drugstore.

When I first tried the facial cleanser and moisturizer I loved them, the feel they had on my skin was a very lightweight feeling with also an amazing scent that left me feeling hydrated and refreshed. I have tried different moisturizers with the facial wash and different facial washes to the moisturizer but it really doesn’t have the same affect these products give when they are together.

All in All, I’m very impressed with outcome of this brand and skincare line of products, which also concludes me to recommend this to all people with the same skin type as me (dry) and everyone really.
