Travelers on JetBlue Mint, the new business class service full of amenities and lie-flat seats, has a special on-board beauty perk: Birchbox kits. The women's box includes Benefit mascara, Klorane relaxing eye patches, Davines OI hair oil, and the men get Baxter of California hair pomade, Ernest Supplies, among other TSA-friendly samples.
The boxes landed on tray tables for the inaugural flight on June 15th, and through the 28th, Birchbox has set up a pop-up shop at the JetBlue T5 terminal. Stop by to charge your phone and take advantage of the samples that have been "selected specifically for you based upon your travel persona."
