Bigger isn’t always better. These bite-sized beauties might seem small, but they’re certain to pack a punch. And they make travel a cinch. Not only do they take up less room in your luggage (go ahead and pack that third pair of sandals!), but they’re TSA-friendly, too.


Carry On Cocktail Kit


It wouldn’t be a vacation without a celebratory take-off toast. Better yet—be your own bartender and mix up a classically refreshing Gin & Tonic. These kits contain enough ingredients (minus the spirits; you’ll need to purchase that on-board!) for two libations—we’ll leave it up to you whether to share the second or keep it for a mid-flight treat. Available in several cocktail varieties.


La Ritzy


This cruelty-free and vegan subscription box service is the perfect addition to your summer beauty essentials. Each month brings a curated collection of four to five luxury items—from cosmetics to skin treatments to hair care—that make it easier than ever to update your travel bag with some praise-worthy favorites.


The Stowaway Kit


It’s your quintessential makeup bag miniaturized. Radiant Complexion BB Cream, Creaseless Concealer, Cheek & Lip Pot, Creme Lipstick, Effortless Eyeliner, and Extreme Lash Mascara— everything you need to go from beach to bar, without cluttering or weighing down your purse.


Organic Suncare Travel Set


Keep sunburn at bay with these sunscreen minis that boast head-to-toe protection, thanks to three SPF 30 products: sunscreen spray, face moisturizer, and lip balm. The set also includes an after-sun lotion packed with rich, natural ingredients to keep skin hydrated and youthful.
