It’s that time of the year when we seem to packing our bags quite a bit. Whether you’re packing for vacation, a wedding, or even work – you’ll likely be packing a bag some time this summer.

And then the dilemma hits. You only have room for a fixed number of items and of course, you want to look your best wherever your journey is taking you.

Fortunately, most beauty companies today understand your plight and offer travel-sized items for your trip to ensure everything you need fits in your carry-on.

Here are a few of our favorite mini items to pack for your upcoming trip…


Flight safety laws mandate that you can only have up to a 1-quart bag of liquids in your carry-on bag. Which is not ideal for those who like to take their must-have skincare products. If you run out of space in your 1-quart bag, trade some of those mini bottles for towelettes.

Cleanser and sunscreen wipes are the perfect alternatives for some of your skin care essentials while you’re traveling.

Here are 11 top picks for cleansing towelettes from, including these top-rated wipes from Josie Maran’s.

These towelettes offer the cleansing or broad spectrum protection you need in a convenient towelette form.

Keep the wipes in your bag as you enjoy your trip so you can refresh or reapply the sunscreen as needed (many recommend every couple hours).


Many people have a favorite or signature scent. When you travel, you may choose to leave your perfume at home because of liquid laws. However, you can still keep your signature scent while traveling by purchasing a refillable bottle.

These tiny products allow you to pour your favorite scent into a compact vessel. Many refillable perfume bottles are only 4 milliliters – the U.S. Transportation Security Administration allows 3.4-ounce (or 100-milliliter) bottles.

These bottles made by Travelo are actually quite convenient and make transferring the exact amount of perfume or cologne desired into this convenient little bottle.

Reduce the number of times you wash your hair when traveling by using dry shampoo and you won’t need to pack as much liquid. Powdered shampoo supplements clean hair by absorbing the oils on your scalp and in your hair. You can pack a dry shampoo bottle in your carry-on without worrying about breaking liquid regulations.

Of course, you’ll get the best anti-aging skin care results if you use the device regularly with the NuFACE Gel Primers.
