From a fancy facial brush to a high-end shampoo, these beauty products will fit in your carry-on and are a steal at under $10 per item.
FUNKY Facial Cleansing Power Brush from SO FRESH SO CLEAN: A product that’s perfect for “taking off the day” after playing tourist, cleansing brushes are often pricey (a Clarisonic runs upwards of $100). Luckily, this version is not only super affordable, it’s travel-friendly to boot. ($7.99)
MISSHA Perfumed Shower Cologne: This softly scented after-shower mist is stronger than the average body spray, but lighter than a perfume. ($5.00)
Sheet masks: The beauty must-have for long-haul flights, a sheet mask is a sort-of scary looking way to wake up fresh-faced and glow-y. Take a cue from the celebs who swear by them and snag one of our favorites: Alba’s Botanica Fast Fix Anti-Wrinkle mask made with camu-camu ($3.49); the Aloe Vera Facial version from The Creme Shop ($1); and MISSHA’s Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask with tea tree ($2.00).
Alba Botanica Hawaiian Detox Towelettes: This multi-tasking towelette — made with real volcanic clay, lotus flower, and torch ginger — removes makeup, detoxifies, and tones without rinsing. Plus, it smells like vacation. ($2.99)
PHYTOVOLUME Volumizing Shampoo/Conditioner: From volumizing to extra hydration or formulas made specifically for color-treated hair, this luxe line from PHYTO Paris comes in a myriad of options in TSA-friendly 1.7 ounce bottles. ($9)
Saje Face Scrub: A traditional beauty treatment in Japan, these compact sponges come from a plant native to the Indochina Peninsula and combine natural exfoliants and essentials oils for soft and smooth skin. ($9.99)
CVS Natural Lip Care in Beeswax: This 100-percent natural beeswax lip balm is a perfect pocket companion to keep lips healthy at the beach or in cold-weather destinations, like the top of a ski slope. ($2.49)
Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Mascara: If a swipe of mascara is your jam, The Colossal creates big dramatic lashes without the clumps. The waterproof version is awesome for pool time and the beach. ($6.99)
AOA Laundry Canvas Bag: Make separating your dirty clothes a cinch with this washable canvas bag from Miss A that folds easily into your carry-on. PS: These make the perfect gift for your travel-loving buddies. ($1.00)
jane iredale BeautyPrep Face Cleanser Mini: This beauty brand cult-favorite cleanser comes in a travel-sized bottle that’s infused with micellar water and cucumber extracts to gently clean the skin of environmental pollutants and makeup. ($8.50)
