Ever since I was a young girl, it has been my dream to try all the best beauty products in the universe. Sadly, I sometimes don’t even have time to wash my face these days.
However, I’ve been living my best beauty-product-testing life vicariously through creeping my friends’ Instagram feeds.
My friend Claire McCormack is an indie beauty cognoscenti. She writes and speaks about the independent beauty and wellness space — the people, companies and trends driving the industry forward. Don’t miss the story she wrote for Vane on airport spas.
She tests all kinds of beauty products and treatments on her Instagram page.
Claire also travels when she can and is no stranger to the challenges of beauty and skincare on the go.
Indie beauty inflight tips from cognoscenti Claire McCormack
Claire: For overnight flights, I put on Skin-eez gloves before I fall asleep.
Kiskanu CBD Skin Rub
Claire: I use this for travel muscle aches.
Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator face mist
Claire: You can feel your skin drying out as the hours go by inflight. Spritzing can feel like a little in-flight luxury.
Lumify eye drops
Claire: Because the red-eye can give you red eyes!
A redness reliever like no other, Lumify (brimonidine tartrate ophthalmic solution 0.025%) is the first and only over-the-counter eye drop developed with low-dose brimonidine tartrate for the treatment of ocular redness due to minor eye irritations. Their website says it works in 1 minute and lasts up to 8 hours.

Claire: When I travel, I wash my hands even more than usual to prevent getting sick. Unfortunately, my hands take a beating because of it, so I make sure to pack lots of hand treats.
These indie beauty inflight tips and products straight from beauty cognoscenti are sure to help you look and feel refreshed the next time you travel.
