TSA Giving Your Beauty Regimen Problems? Not If You Have These Travel-Friendly Products
Checking bags is a drag, especially for those quick jaunts for that quick business trip or weekend getaway. But what’s a girl to do with her go-to beauty regimen that doesn’t follow TSA’s 3.4-ounce and under rule for liquids, creams, and gels. And forget the quart-sized bag. That would never do.
Stop checking a bag just for your hair and skincare potions. Instead, check out this list of travel-friendly beauty products. Not to worry, though. The only thing you’ll be missing on this new liquid diet is the baggage claim area.
1. Fig + Yarrow Facial Care Kit
Give your complexion all the face time it needs, even when you’re jetting from coast to coast, with the Fig + Yarrow Facial Care Kit. The set is made for convenient, air-friendly travel but it’s the must-have minis in it that had us at hello — from the luxurious Yarrow Buttercream face and hand cream, to the oat- and herb-based facial scrub with honey, and the reparative, beautifying facial serum. There’s also a botanically rich, wash-less cleanser and toner in the mix plus aromatherapeutic complexion waters to hydrate, tone, and balance. You likely will find yourself using these products long after you arrive back home.
2. BlowPro ‘Faux Dry’ Dry Shampoo
The 1.7-ounce BlowPro Faux Dry Dry Shampoo is a necessary travel companion with its proprietary Pure Protein Blend of amaranth, lupine, and wheat to transform limp locks. It cleanses hair in a pinch without water, absorbs excess oil, and instantly adds volume at the roots without weighing down hair or leaving a powdery residue. The product was designed by the blowout experts at Blow Dry Bar so you know that Faux Dry will work wonders on a weary blowout, too, breathing new life into your strands, especially when that local salon visit simply isn’t in the cards.
3. Plant Travel Size Organic Body Washes
Traveling can be stressful but you can turn any hotel room or lodging into your own personal spa with aromatherapy courtesy of PLANT Apothecary’s Travel Size Organic Body Washes. As you might be able to tell from the name, Plant makes environmentally friendly, botanical-based apothecary goods with a conscience, and it should be on your beauty radar.
This set of five, all-natural honey-like gels capitalize on the power of essential oils and include Wake Up (stimulating rosemary and lemongrass), Get Happy (uplifting peppermint and geranium), Calm Down (relaxing ginger and lavender), Get It On (aphrodisiac sandalwood and cedar, and Be Well (healing eucalyptus and bergamot). They pretty much cover every mood or feeling you may experience while on the road. With only nine simple ingredients, they are completely free of parabens, SLS, petroleum, silicons and harsh, mystery chemicals. And, at only 2.3 ounces a pop, they’ll sail through the security line.
4. Kiss My Face Cool Mint Shaving Cream
At exactly 3.4 ounces, Kiss My Face Cool Mint Shaving Cream just scrapes by the TSA rule book. And it’s a good thing it does. The 4-in-1 cream works like this: Vitamin E softens the skin while the creamy formula provides a smooth, close shave. Then, golden seal, lemongrass, and aloe help to soothe skin and, last but not least, olive and coconut oils moisturize.
Oh, and that invigorating mint essence will transform any tired travel outlook instantly. This 4-in-1 shaving cream’s not just for the girls, either, so it’s a twofer for you and your partner. No need to pack their own.
5. Meow Meow Tweet Migrator Kit
The name may sound a bit silly, but this small-batch skincare company, based in the Catskill Mountains of New York, is 100% serious about creating vegan products with pure, all-natural, and organic ingredients that promote physical, emotional, and ecological healthfulness. The Meow Meow Tweet Migrator Kit is an ideal take-along for weekends out of town with its ample supply of goods made with healing, unrefined plant oils, cold-pressed essential oils, and wild-crafted botanicals. It includes mini versions of the brand’s beautifully scented body oil (1 ounce), deodorant (1 ounce), face exfoliant (1 ounce), face oil (4 milliliters), face cleanser (1 ounce), face toner (10 milliliters), and lip balm.
The hardest decision you’ll have to make is choosing from a body oil in lavender lemongrass, juniper mint, or frankincense and flowers. No matter which you select, though, your face and skin will be thanking you.
6. Coola 4-Piece Organic Suncare Travel Set
If your travels are taking you to a fun-in-the-sun destination, then add Coola’s 4-Piece Organic Suncare Travel Set to your carry-on. The high-performance products protect and nourish the skin with vitamins and age-defying antioxidants — and they don’t have any parabens, paba, petroleum, or phthalates. The 3.4-ounce Pina Colada Sunscreen Spray SPF 30 will have every inch of your body shielded from the rays and smelling like vacation. The Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer (0.85 ounce) refreshes as it protects while the Liplux SPF 30 has your pout covered. If you get too much sun, the ER+ Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion (2 oz.) will come to your rescue. How cool is that.
