When news spread that 3FLOZ, the genius purveyor of TSA-friendly beauty products, was readying to launch kiosks at airports this year, I instantly did a happy dance. After all, the company is a favorite of many, including Birchbox. While I thought that we’d have to wait until the end of the year before the self-service machines were unveiled, my friends at Air Repair have revealed that they’re coming out in just a few weeks!

Beauty Travel Essentials …

I’ll be heading out to LA for a nice long girls weekend on Friday with my Mom, Grandmother and sister - hope LA is prepared for us! As excited as I am, I know that taking a 6 hour flight on a Friday evening {after a long day at the office none-the-less!} and the red-eye back can wreak havoc on a girls face. It’s not a pretty sight, trust me, so I’ve pulled together a few of my quintessential travel companions, that help me look a tad bit better when I land. And as a side note, I really wish I were carrying on that fabulous Steamline Luggage in the Stylists group {serious love bubble.}

Our Hair And Wellness 3FLOZ Winners

image

We’re back and ready to talk about our hair and wellness product winners of 2014 (so far).

By far, our most purchased hair care product of the past year has been the Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Volumizing Travel Size Mousse. Our customers love this product because it helps to create big volume by targeting the source, your hair root. Simply applying a dollop of this mousse to damp hair at the root will help you to achieve phenomenal lift. This product keeps on working all day to help your hair resist humidity, furthering the life of your big sexy hair style.

Our most purchased wellness product has been Help I Have A Headache. We love Help Remedies because they perfectly package any wellness product you could ever need into a pint sized package. Help I Have a Headache contains 325 mg of uncoated and uncolored acetaminophen caplets to help stop your headaches from progressing wherever you are.

Stay tuned throughout the rest of the week while we share more of our best selling products of 2014!

Automated kiosks

This looks handy!

Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport will be among the first in the nation to get a 3FLOZ automated retail kiosk. These 3FLOZ Kiosks will feature top beauty, grooming and personal care products exclusively in TSA-approved travel sizes. Brands such as Murad, Jack Black, Herban Essentials, Help! Remedies and many others will be included. These convenience-focused kiosks will also help travelers passing through MSP easily grab last minute must-haves they may have forgotten. Special ESSENTIALS kits for everything from beating jet lag to maintaining a perfect hair style on-the-go are included in the automated kiosks for shoppers who’d like to purchase a curated product selection. 

3FLOZ.com launched in 2010 and has quickly become a go to ecommerce site for business and leisure travelers who either don’t want to check a bag or simply want to travel light. The brand new 3FLOZ Airport Kiosks will land in The Twin Cities in early September 2013 in Terminal 1 at Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport.

3FLOZ Travel Tips And Tricks : Summer Hand And Foot Care

image

Isn’t it ironic that the heat is what we crave throughout the summer, yet it’s what can do the most damage to our bodies? Your hands and feet are delicate parts of your body to begin with, but once the summer months roll around it’s important to take extra care. With increased heat comes excess moisture on your feet and drying on your skin.

Not only do we want to keep the skin on our hands and feet perfectly moisturized and protected, we also want our nails to look their best. Here are our favorite 3FLOZ  hand and foot care items for this summer:

Lauren B. Nourishing Hand Creme: Carry this non-greasy, rich hand cream wherever you go this summer! Not only is this product highly moisturizing, but it smells amazing. You’ll be reapplying just for the scent all day long.

Lauren B. Nail Polish Remover Puck: If you’re always on the go, but love tending to your own nails, this travel nail polish remover puck with 15 remover pads is essential. The non-acetone remover formula is infused with aloe to leave your skin feeling silky and moisturized. Always be ready for your on-the-go touchup! 

Tweezerman Mini Nail Rescue Kit: This perfectly packaged, travel sized kit includes all of your nail essentials. Never be without a cuticle & hangnail nipper, nail file and nail cleaner again!

Burt’s Bees Cuticle Cream: This specially formulated cuticle cream is a favorite for a reason. Almond oil and cocoa seed butter come together to make your tips as smooth as can be.

Burt’s Bees Hand Salve: This Burt’s Bees product is one of their top sellers for a reason. If your hands and feet are dried out from the sun and sand, just rub this salve onto your skin and feel instant relief. 

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream: Give yourself a daily foot treatment by simply rubbing on this cream formulated with coconut oil and other natural ingredients. 

The Honest Co Hand Sanitizer: Because sometimes you need to quickly clean your hands and feet (especially at the beach) and this product does the trick.

Our best tip for summer hand and foot care? Keep everything clean, and moisturized and you’ll be alright. 

The 3FLOZ Product Awards

image

It’s that time of year! The summer awards season is currently underway. With the 2014 MTV VMAs airing last night and the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards showcasing tonight, we were feeling inspired. 

We broke down our most major product categories (Kits, Hair, Face, Wellness and Body) and decided to highlight our best selling products of 2014 (so far) from each product category! We’ll spend each day this week sharing our best selling products and why we think our customers love them.

Today, we’re talking about our best selling 3FLOZ Kit of 2014: The Travel Essentials Kit.

Why do customers love our Travel Essentials Kit? Because it offers everything you could possibly need in your carry on (or even day-to-day bag) for a mere $36.

The kit includes: 

  • Help: I’ve Cut Myself: 16 adhesive bandages
  • Help: I Have A Headache: Contains 325 mg uncoated and uncolored acetaminophen caplets
  • Supersmile Toothpaste: Whitens, freshens, strengthens and protects your teeth. 
  • The Laundress Crease Release: We’ve learned from experience that stuffing clothes into suitcases make wrinkles unavoidable. Simply release those creases with this perfect spray mist.
  • Yes To Cucumber Towelettes: These all-natural and hypoallergenic towelettes are made with soothing ingredients like cucumbers, green tea, and aloe. Cleanse and rid skin of impurities and makeup. No need to rinse.
