Alexia Efthymiadou and Ianis Claman are both flight attendants for easyJet, and thanks to their years of cabin crew experience, they know exactly what to pack on the plane.
In an article in Conde Nast Traveller, the flight attendants revealed the makeup and skincare items they always make sure to pack.
While items like universal adapters and packing cubes come to mind, Alexia and Ianis’s top pick only costs £3 – and it makes for the perfectstocking filler.
Alexia and Ianis revealed that they always pack a lip moisturising stick from Nuxe Rêve de Miel.

She said: “I’m a big fan of using high-quality make-up products – we have limited time on our short-haul flights, so I tend to use a spray mist on top of my make-up to hydrate my face if I feel it becoming dry, and I always pack hand cream (we need to wash our hands frequently on board, so our hands can get quite dry mid-flight).
“I keep close to hand my lip moisturising stick from Nuxe Rêve de Miel.”

Alexia and Ianis aren’t the only cabin crew members who always make sure to pack moisturising products.
Earlier this year, acabin crew member revealed that she would never board a plane without a small tub of Vaseline.
Vicky Lewis, who worked for Richard Branson’s airline for 28 years, told Sun Online Travel: “Vaseline is a must to stop my lips from drying out. And I’ll even put it under my eyes on super long flights.”
Meanwhile, Jetstar cabin crew member, Shelby, explained that for long-haul flights, the most important items are a hydrating moisturiser and hydrating mist to counteract the dry conditions in the cabin.
She said: “I swear by Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner, which can be sprayed on bare skin.
“I find it to be extremely hydrating and takes that dry itchiness away from my face. It also keeps me feeling refreshed and energised on long flights.”
Meanwhile, this cabin crew member has revealed the stupidest questions they’ve been asked by passengers.
These three items help another flight attendant avoid disaster while travelling.
