Long hours in airports, followed by long hours on a plane, between Mr. Sleeps-on-me and Ms. Armrest Hog, can take a serious toll. But let’s take a look at some products that will revitalize and rejuvenate after that long commute:

Sometimes feeling good can be as simple as smelling good. But with liquid restrictions, it’s difficult to sneak your favorite scent onto a flight for a quick spritz. It was this frustration that inspired Baroque Bath & Body owner and founder Sarah Johnson to create the Baroque Solid Perfume Sticks – an array of fabulous scents in an all-natural, chemical free solid stick form, for quick, no mess application. With near 40 varieties to choose from, you are sure to find your perfect match. However, if you simply cannot part with your perfume of choice, try the Travalo Perfume Atomizer. This tiny atomizer holds 4 ml of your favorite perfume, just enough to get you past TSA without the concern of it being removed. With an easy refill system and small, compact design, the Travalo can aid you in traveling with your fragrance, or just keeping it with you on a day to day basis. With either of these items, you are sure to smell great from the time you embark to the wait at the luggage carousel and beyond. You can find more info on the Baroque Solid Perfume Sticks at and the Travalo Perfume Atomizer at

Sometimes it’s the act of sitting so long that can wear you out. I know for me, sitting too long does a number on my back. And add on the other stresses that traveling brings on, the person who entered the plane can leave a ball of tight, achy muscles. For quick relief of this, check out the TheraPearl Neck Wrap and Eye-ssential Mask. Hot or cold, these can soothe and relax you after a long flight, without the drippy mess of other ice bags. These are designed to keep the heat or cold for 20 minutes, which is the recommended time for maximum relief. For more info on TheraPearl, visit

Rejuvenation can start before you disembark the plane. Fight that overdone, overheated, overtired feeling that comes with travel with the DuWop Flight Stick. Created to cool and hydrate the skin of the hectic day to day traveler – or even just the weary vacationer. Packed with powerful antioxidants, caffeine, and hyaluronic acid, the Flight Stick soothes, cools, conditions and protects damaged skin. And with a hint of color, it can be used daily to protect against the elements as a part of a beauty routine. Use it once on that long flight and you may find it’s made its way into your skin care regime! You can purchase the Flight Stick at

Of course, once you get off the plane and into your hotel room, you want to get out of those travel clothes and into something nice. However, that something has spent the latter half of a day in a cramped suitcase. But a quick go over with the Rowenta Ultrabrush Steam will remove unsightly wrinkles and give your clothing a fresh and “just washed” feel. Use with the fabric brush to remove heavy duty wrinkles, then a quick go over with the included lint pad and you’re out the door. This steamer is ergonomically designed, so no worries of uncomfortable grip or handling. It’s quick and easy, because who wants to spend too much time dewrinkling? Find more about this item at
