    A Futuristic Shaving Kit
    This colorful little disc is packed with everything you need for a shaving session. There’s a razor, a bar of solid shaving cream, and even a spray bottle of water. It works everywhere — from a luxe hotel room to a campground.

    Cooling Eye Balm
    Eye cream is often one of those "extras" that gets left at home when packing space is limited. But let us assure you, it’s worth making room for this eye balm. Glide on the solid (read: carry-on friendly) stick to soothe and de-puff tired undereye areas. It’s packed with nourishing ingredients like goat milk, manuka honey, and plant stem cells — and feels refreshingly cool to the touch.

    Multitasking Lipstick
    Lugging around an entire makeup collection isn't exactly the move of a savvy traveler. That’s why lipsticks are vacation-beauty game changers. A swipe of bold color instantly brightens your entire face. And, in a pinch, you can use your fingertips to blend the product over the apples of your cheeks. Our hands-down pick is Burt's Bees Lipstick for its all-natural, super-moisturizing formula.

    Single-Serve Hair Treatments
    Planning to ravage your hair with heavy doses of sun, saltwater, and ponytails? We’ll allow it — as long as you do a little rehab along the way. Each box of these Ouai Treatment Masques contains eight single-serve packs of conditioning treatment, so you can easily tote one or two in your toiletry kit.

    Travel-Friendly Fragrance
    Spill-proof, easy, disposable — wipes are a traveling girl’s best friend. We were instantly enamored when we found these fragrance wipes that are so tiny you could easily slip them into your wallet. Each set comes with 20 towelettes infused with one of 10 scents (two of each). They range from inventive florals and zingy citrus-y varieties to a warm, delicious blend of vanilla and caramel.
