Whenever we're prepping to travel, we end up staying up 'til 5 a.m., desperately trying to fit that crucial fourth pair of shoes into our carry-on bag. And it's the same thing with those damn beauty products—our makeup case always looks like a ticking time bomb about to explode. And if you're like us, the TSA regulations on carry-on liquids definitely slowed down the packing process even more so. Enter two savvy New Yorkers (and besties) Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz, hardcore travel junkies that were sick of ditching their fave products because they didn't meet TSA standards. Their answer was to take charge in a major way and create 3floz.com , an online boutique offering name-brand beauty and grooming products, like Dr. Hauschka and Beauty Without Cruelty, that are all three fluid ounces or less (the legal maximum for carry-ons). The best part—3floz guarantees same-day messenger delivery in New York City for the same price as ground shipping. Looks like getting out of town just got a whole lot easier.
Here, Kate and Alexi share their four must-have travel products:
1.) Jonathan Spray Dirt Hairspray ($14): "'We're obsessed with the texture and the bed head look it gives our hair. Plus, there's no stickiness."
2.) Ole Henriksen Micro/Mini Peel Mini Starter Kit ($45): "It's an at-home or hotel room facial!"
3.) Yes to Carrots Towelettes ($6): "We can use them anywhere, travel with them, refresh our skin and they are all natural."
3.) Philip B Peppermint and Avocado Shampoo ($8): "We love the volume it gives and the great shine, too, plus the scent is amazing!"
