Duo Eyelash Adhesive in Dark Dr Brandt Skincare Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask Peace Out Acne Healing Dots Luxy Lash in #Bae Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

For my trip to Amsterdam & London, I wanted to try out some leave-on masks that I could apply and leave on during the long flight so my skin would not look so dehydrated upon arrival.  I may have gotten a little carried away with my ordering but that’s where you all get the benefit! 😜  For the products that offered a travel or mini size, I like to go that route before committing to the full purchase.  Check out which products I loved by clicking the “Continue Reading” button below:

  1. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask – $22 – $45: Love the packaging for starters! It makes you want to put this mask on! The watermelon smell is so addicting! I wanted to put on more! It is very hydrating and left my skin with a morning glow. While this mask may not be the ideal in-flight mask because it requires a wash off in the morning, it can be simply wiped off with a face wipe if you’re without a sink. Verdict: buy!
  2. Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask – $8 – $35: I am all about multi-tasking! The more I can get out of one product, the more likely I am to fall in love! It’s even more of a consideration when I travel because I hate having to pack more than necessary in my toiletries (my suitcase is always in jeopardy of passing that 50-lb limit🤦🏻‍♀️😂). This is a great moisture-packed mask that doesn’t leave skin overly greasy or shiny. I give it an extra star for not requiring a wash off… no need to leave your seat on the plane and fumble around in the teeny tiny lavatory. Verdict: this will be added to my permanent carry-on kit! The price & varying size options are great too!
  3. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – $20: I was super excited to try this lip mask especially considering my recent lip dryness. After wiping it off in the morning, it left my lips super soft and visibly plumper & more hydrated with less visible fine lines. Verdict: $20 VERRRY well spent! 👍🏼
  4. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – $25: This Korean brand claims to provide purifying & intense hydration during your sleep so you wake up to glowing skin. Overnight mask but need to wash off in morning. It feels like a lot of moisture when you first put it on, but a few minutes later it starts to soak deep into your skin and by morning there is no sign that you just had on a hydrating sleeping mask. In fact, my skin was fairly matte come morning yet felt moisturized and calmed. I actually waited to wash it off until after my Soul Cycle class. I noticed less redness and a more even skin tone. My skin felt soooo soft after washing it off! Verdict: Definitely re-buying this mask when I’m out!
  5. Dr. Brandt Skincare Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask – $52: I really like this one for travel because it’s an overnight leave-on mask with NO rinse off in the morning, making it ideal for flights. The deeply hydrating benefits are also exactly what I look for in my in-flight “spa” treatment in that overly-drying airplane cabin. And no complaints about it’s added calming effects reducing skin redness and irritation! While I like it for travel, I didn’t find it life-changing enough to want to use it as much when I’m not on the road.  Verdict: stick this one in your carry-on for sure but with a steeper price than its competitors, it’ll have me thinking twice before a re-up as a home mask.
  6. Peace Out Acne Healing Dots – $19:  These little clear round stickers do a great job of reducing pimple swelling and redness overnight.  I have used quite a few of these in the last week or so and even found them very handy on my recent trip to London & Amsterdam… way neater than messy acne treatment creams!  Verdict:  Buy them!
  7. Luxy Lash Mink Lashes in “#Bae” – $29.99:  I love the whole line of Luxy Lashes but just recently tried the #Bae style and love their sexy wispiness!  These are just the right amount of volume to give you a natural yet glamorous lash line.  Every time I try a new style I am hard pressed to pick a fave!  Now it’s gonna be a toss up between the #Bae, Babydoll, & Ain’t No Wifey styles!  Love them all!  Verdict:  Buy them all!!
  8. Duo Lash Glue in “Dark” – $4.49:  I realized that I haven’t reviewed any lash glues at all.  Look no further… this is my go-to!  The dark color blends perfectly into your natural lash color and you don’t have to wait as long to leave the house as you would with the clear/white glue.  Verdict:  The only glue I have in my bag.  Enough said.
