The Best Travel Size Beauty Products Under $10

Everyone knows the travel industry has inflated prices, especially around the holidays. Carry-on baggage size limits are getting smaller, while checked bag fees (remember when there weren't any?) are getting higher, and an airport latte costs even more than one at Starbucks (don't even get us started if it's an airport Starbucks) — though that pricey flight home for Thanksgiving may require you to skip fancy coffee until the new year anyway.

But traveling is definitely worth the extra cost — especially during the holiday — so you just have to save a little money wherever you can. Luckily, there's no need to spend a fortune on your travel-sized products. In the spirit of holiday giving without going broke, we've rounded up travel-size beauty products that check all the boxes (efficacy, scent, reliability) and ring in at under $10. Safe travels!
