Darphin Intral Redness Relief Soothing Serum – This high potency soothing Darphin serum dedicated to sensitive skin prone to irritations helps diminish the appearance of redness and quiets the appearance of irritations as it softens skin.
I don’t use Darphins soothing serum everyday because I prefer to use something creamier that absorbs into my skin and fills fine lines. However, I do love to use this product during and after I fly because it does feel quite ‘watery’ when applied, which is exactly what my skin thirsts for during a long flight. My skin always looks calm, smooth and healthy when I apply this serum 30 minutes before landing. Just make sure you gently wipe off any bacterial build up on your face (See Kristin’s toner mist review here), and clean your hands thoroughly before you apply the serum.
Travel sized approved! 1 oz / 30 ml
Key Ingredients:
Calm Complex*, Grape Extract, Resveratrol, Glycosaminoglycanes (MDI Complex), Glycerine

GoToob: The civilized, TSA approved, squeezable travel tube – There isn’t anything I can say about this product that would do it justice. I have gone through hundred’s (maybe not that many but it feels like it sometimes) of other airline approved containers, and absolutely NOTHING works as well as GoToob. Maybe you don’t have the same problems with packaging your fluids as I do; so if you’re happy with your ‘carry-on packaging’ skills, don’t change a thing. But if you have any difficulties at all – like the caps popping off or loosening and leaking fluids during a flight – Containers being impossible to clean afterwards – Dispensing your product is an issue due to small openings or poor pressure. Etc. Etc. – PURCHASE GOTOOB RIGHT AWAY!!!

These bottles are everything they say they are – leak proof, easy dispensing, quick fill opening, “No-drip” valve, and a perfect (and maximum allowed) size for travel – 3 ounces.
Product Details:
The award-winning and patented GoToob is made from soft yet rugged silicone, so it’s easy to squeeze and dispense the product right away. 
A special, “no-drip” valve helps the cap stay clean.
A window in the collar identifies popular contents. Simply pop off the ID ring and set the window to “Soap”, “Lotion” and more.
A blank setting lets the user write on their own word.
A large opening means it’s easy to fill and clean your GoToob.

The small 1.25oz. size slips easily into pockets, bags, purses and other tight spots. The medium 2oz. size features a handy suction cup that can briefly attach to walls for moments when you need your hands free. And a large 3oz. size gives you maximum volume for longer times between refills.
All GoToobs are approved for airplane carry-on, they’re food-safe (FDA) and are 100% BPA-free and PC-free. They are also covered by our lifetime warranty.

Sunday Riley’s Liquid Diet:  My Grandfather used to tell me to drink a Bloody Mary every time I’m flying because the mix of Vodka and acidy Tomato juice stimulates blood flow and will cure post-flight swollen legs & feet. I’m not sure if there is any scientific evidence to this Bloody Mary theory or it’s just an old wives tail, but the fact remains – Everyone has experienced ‘swollen’ legs and feet when traveling, caused by poor blood circulation and increased water retention. I don’t know about you, but I hate feeling bloated. It’s never fun to feel bigger, slower and heavier. I’m not a big fan of Blood Mary’s so in order to combat the bloat I use Sunday Riley’s Liquid Diet.
Official Review– It is a very powerful topical diuretic that is specifically formulated to temporarily drain excess fluid build-up. It is alarmingly effective in its ability to reduce swelling and water retention associated with monthly hormonal changes, tired legs and feet, swelling from excessive sodium intake, etc.
Unofficial Review– This stuff is ridiculous!! In a good way. Put this stuff on areas that get bloated (for whatever reason) and you will be shocked to see the water weight vanishes like magic! This is an amazingly effective product, and it works wonders on bloated and cramped stomach areas (during “that time of the month”) as well as tired swollen legs and feet.
NOT travel sized approved – but that’s OK! You can pack this 6.8 fluid oz. bottle in your checked bag and use it after your flight, or put a few pumps in a travel sized container.
I wouldn’t recommend using it every single day for two reasons 1) Because you won’t feel the full effects when you REALLY need it if your body has already gotten used it from daily usage. 2) Because of the “Topical Diuretic” ingredients you will need to go to the bathroom more often to drain that excess fluid. My suggestion is to only use Sunday Riley’s Liquid Diet when needed (like when you have your period or your legs feel swollen from travel or dancing all night long)
Liquid Diet Price: $105.00 (6.8 fl. oz) sundayriley.com or barneys.com
