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!
Air Repair is one of the many beauty brands (more than 50!) that will be featured in 3FLOZ’s convenient kiosks, which will appear in 25 domestic airports, including John F. Kennedy (New York City), Dallas/Fort Worth (TX), McCarran (Las Vegas, NV) and St. Paul (MN). What I dig about Air Repair is that they specifically target environmental stressors that affect our skin’s health, like flying. In addition to two exclusive kits—the Skincare Kit ($42) and the Quenching Facial Mist & Rescue Balm Duo ($22)—Air Repairs offerings will also include their popular Jet Lag ($60) and In a Clutch ($54) Kits, which feature their best-selling (and lip-saving, may I add) multi-purpose salve Rescue Balm.
"The founders of 3FLOZ’s and I shared a common vision of an untapped market in airport retail; that being high quality, carry-on compliant beauty products that were available on-the-go," founder Denise Spanek tells me. "I am so excited to see our brand being showcased in their beautiful kiosks."
Look out for these kiosks at an airport near you soon!
