Beat the System

What’s a girl to do when fastidious FAA employees confiscate urgently necessary beauty products?

We try to avoid checking luggage like we try to avoid catching the flu. But going carry-on only is a real road block to beauty. Rules for flying: liquids and gels must be no more than 3.4 ounces each and transported in a clear plastic zip-top bag. What a pain! Instead, try these travel kits recommended by our friends at beautystat.com. We love the simplicity, and the FAA will love the size.


Molton Brown

Molton Brown’s leather-packaged travel sets are perfect for you aroma-therapy fans. Their passion flower and pandano-fruit scent is delicious and calming, perfect for travel stress. The $59 Indulgent Traveller includes shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, body wash and moisturizer. The $135 Globe Trekker includes those products, plus a face wash, toner, eye cream, hydrating moisture mist and vitamin lip balm.

Kate Somerville Mini Glow Kit

The Mini Glow Kit for $85 is limited edition, online only, and houses three of Somerville’s best sellers in one convenient vinyl bag. The exfoliating face scrub instantly brightens our skin, and hydrating serum and turbo-driven anti-aging cream are a must for our travel-weary faces. Great for ladies of a certain age, or for anyone who doesn’t want to look like one!
