Beauty Notes & Shopping Tips: Think About Bringing Solid Moisturizers on the Airplane

If you're desperate about the new ban on liquids that is being enforced in nearly all airports, except in Canada, and wonder how you are going to survive without any moisturizer (and an abundant supply of water) during your flight, think about purchasing solid moisturizers or lotion bars. These just need to be rubbed onto the skin and will melt with your body heat.

Lotion Bar Spice n' Ice by Woodsprite.

Ingredients are: Organic Virgin Cocoa Butter, Organic Shea Butter,
Beeswax, Avocado Oil, Natural Vitamin E & Select Essential Oils of Ginger, Clove, Peppermint, Juniper, Rosemary and Cassia. It costs $16. Just keep it in a cool place before take off so that it does not melt too soon, as they seem to be worried about this possibility. A little freeze pack might help...
