How to carry all your beauty essentials in-flight
We all know the feeling. You’ve arrived at the airport, giddy with excitement and raring to get away… And your favourite beauty product gets confiscated, condemning you to a week or more of inferior substitutes bought at the airport Boots.
At Lecler, we know the frustration of having to make last-minute airport beauty purchases- the kind you never touch again once you’re reunited with your old favourites back home. We are passionate about maintaining excellent skincare and hate to sacrifice on quality for the sake of a pesky 100ml limit.
Luckily, there are like-minded beauty addicts out there who have come up with ways for modern women to transport the best products wherever they go…
1. flying beautiful
flying beautiful is a brilliant new online store and platform that sells top quality beauty products in travel sizes of 100ml and under. Founded earlier this year, the concept has rightly taken off with a bang and already been hailed in Condé Nast Traveller magazine. The perfect solution for modern working women who embrace travel as part of their lifestyle.
2. Feel Unique or Lookfantastic
On either Feel Unique or Lookfantastic you can simply order samples of your favourite products. Feel Unique offers three ways to do this. You can either:
- Directly order free samples of your chosen products (you only have to pay £3.95 postage)

3. Beauty boxes
With a beauty box you can sample a range of new beauty products without the hassle of sampling everything in shop. You can either pay on a monthly subscription or a one off. There are so many beauty boxes to choose from- here’s our run-down of four of our favourites:
- Cohorted (£35 per month)
The best ‘all-rounder’ option, Cohorted is a sleek, stylish brand that delivers generous samples of a wide variety of high-end products. Each box includes hand-picked luxury brands as well as one ‘discovery’ product from a lesser-known brand, which is ideal for those who are always on the hunt for the latest craze.
- LoveLula (12.50 per month)
All organic and natural products, so this is ideal for those with sensitive skin. They deliver a range of respected, high-end natural brands such as Ren and Balm.
- Mintd (£65 per month)
A higher price point but definitely the most luxurious option available- and each haul is worth over £135. Contains a variety of well-known luxury brands and more niche, specialist makes that you wouldn’t necessarily hunt down yourself.
- Birchbox (£10 per month)
An ‘oldie but a goodie’, Birchbox has always been a reliable favourite. Not quite as luxe as other options but contains good quality products nevertheless and is great value for money.
