As you can see from the image above, there are some great travel-friendly products. We've stashed them in our Dopp kit and they've made our lives so much easier and lighter.
La Fresh's Travel Lite packets are a godsend. They have everything you need while on the road. The list is long---Hydrating Lotion travel wipes, works-all-day antiperspirant wipes (for men and women), as well as insect repellent, antibacterial and personal care wipes. So, you'll always be prepared whether you're in a desert hut, an eco-style cabana with an outhouse , woodsy campsite or hot Caribbean resort. And the great thing is, most are made with natural and moisturizing ingredients.
Blowfish for Hangovers is what you want in a hotel minibar (worth paying for!) so you don't have to run down to the lobby kiosk and beg for an aspirin to counteract all those beverages you consumed the night before. This stuff is better than any remedy we've ever tried, and its compact envelope barely takes up any room. Get it at 3floz.com.
The Laundress' Crease Release is in a more sleek bottle than the travel-size Downy Wrinkle Releaser, and works even better with less to tote around (2oz). It's non-toxic and allergen free, a boon for those who need clean-and-clear products. Plus, it's great when you're on a cruise ship where irons aren't allowed! Get it at 3floz.com.
Admit it, sometimes you don't have time to wash your hair properly. That's why the Blow Pro's Faux Dry Shampoo is freakin' genius. It's not even a liquid, so the TSA can't bother you. The method is a modern take on an old remedy to get hair glossy quickly--by applying a scented talcum-like powder. And at 1.7 oz, you're golden for space. Get it at 3floz.com.
Now of course, the likelihood that any of these will be free in hotel rooms (though we've seen makeup remover pads), but if they were in your minibar you'd probably use 'em. But better still, buy them yourself and watch your carry-on load and hotel-amenity anxiety lighten.
