Virgin Australia's new Mandarina Duck amenity kits with REN skincare

By David Flynn, September 3 2014

Virgin Australia's new Boeing 777 business class amenity kits have gone upmarket, with bags by lifestyle fashion brand Mandarina Duck and skincare by REN.

The male and female kits are fairly similar, apart from the bag – black for the lads, bone for the ladies – and the inclusion of tissues and a 'vanity pack' of cotton pads & cotton buds in the female kit.

No tissues for the blokes? Come on, Virgin, we can get the inflight sniffles too!

The REN skincare pack is unisex and contains travel-friendly tubes of face cream, lip balm and hand moisturiser.

Other standard items are the obligatory eye mask and socks, ear plugs, toothbrush and toothpaste.

No brush that is a shame. I wonder if with this change the socks will fit me now. They made a change in the last 6 months and i can't get them over the end of my foot anymore. Some what annoying.

A pen is a great idea for filling out those customs forms, but a brush would be good for the ladies and men.

"...bone for the ladies..."

Somehow that doesn't sound quite right.

I think 'grey-white' would have sufficed, in spite of the PR source. :-)

These look fabulous. I wish Qantas could have done something to their amenty kits. I flew their first class and only thing I was disappointed was the amenty kit. No fancy logo of the brand and outdated design.
