I've spent years figuring out how to render my elaborate hair, makeup, and skincare routines portable — and, as a self-professed product hoarder, this has proven itself to be far from an easy feat. However, after many spills and TSA-confiscated bottles of full-size Drunk Elephant (RIP), I've whittled down my sustainable travel beauty routine to a science.
The truth is that all those pint-sized bottles are NOT kind on the planet — but, in recent years, brands have been thankfully shifting towards a much more sustainable approach to travel beauty products. Think everything from refillable bottles that you can use again and again to aluminum packaging that's durable (and more likely to be recycled when you're done) and space-saving multi-purpose containers that reduce waste. Ahead, shop a tight lineup of goods that are eco-approved for more mileage when you travel (and less waste).
