There’s nothing like a long plane ride to make you realize how disorganized you really are. From forgetting your phone charger and loosing your boarding pass to misplacing your water bottle (or worse, your blanket scarf), traveling brings out the worst in you. Don’t be a rookie any longer—stock up on the following 25 essentials to have the most comfortable (and hydrating) in-flight experience.
The secret to surviving an international flight without resorting to pajamas.
Outdoor Voices ($95)
Slip into these mid-flight (preferably when your seatmate is asleep) to reveal baby soft hands 20 minutes later.
This chic catchall is roomy enough for several nights' worth of clothing. Just be prepared to share: Its neutral and unisex appeal will make it a family favorite.
In case you finish your designated beach read a few days too early, this baby’s got your back.
A potent blend of lavender, geranium and rosemary will detoxify and protect your skin from whatever’s floating around up there. (Just make sure to ask your seatmate before spraying.)
Lavender Neck Pillow
Soft and cozy, with a secret scented pouch of lavender and flaxseed to soothe you to sleep.
Sonoma Lavender ($44)
4-in-1 Face Wipes
Cleanse, exfoliate, heal and hydrate all with one little cloth. Give yourself a quick swipe upon boarding the plane, and another as you exit.
Ursa Major ($24 for a pack of 20)
Don’t be that girl who has to untie and re-tie her shoes at security. But also, don’t be that girl who forgets to wear pedi socks.
French Connection ($125)
Call this the miracle worker. Its tingly cool formula will instantly refresh tired eyes.
Part accessory, part full-body blanket (that doesn’t have a questionable past).
Joe Fresh ($10)
With a naturally refreshing scent and formula, you can de-germ your entire area without upsetting your neighbors.
This way, you can mix up a drink anytime you damn well please.
For a quick touch-up when you can’t access your real toiletries.
Travel Cord Roll
Don’t get stuck in the iPhone-laptop-Kindle charger scramble.
Brouk & Co ($20)
Insulated Water Bottle
This guy will keep your beverages cold for your entire flight, guaranteed. (Just remember to empty him out before you walk through security.)
Portable Phone Charger
This guy recharges itself with using a standard wall outlet, so you’ll never be far from 100 percent.
Bump Charger ($40)
And if you need a serious pick-me-up, tote these lay-flat deodorizing wipes into the bathroom with you.
Nourishing Hand Cream
Because the air is bone-dry 30,000 miles up.
“Oh, You Fancy” Kit
Silk eye mask, cashmere socks and calming mist included.
Jet & Bo ($99)
OK, you might get a few stares, but you’ll be getting even more stares when you exit the plane with a supermodel glow.
Silence the screaming newborns and chatty neighbors and turn up the Ed Sheeran.
Moisturizing Lip Treatment
This ultra-hydrating lip balm is also formulated with retinol to help treat fine lines while you fly.
Clé de Peau ($50)
Layers will make all the difference when the arctic temps take over.
