6 Travel-Size Skin-Care Products for Your Next Trip
Whether you’re jetting across the country or just going a few hours away, it’s no secret that traveling with all of your skin care can be annoying — even with silicone squeezy bottles and an intuitive labeling system (read: Sharpie) in hand. And while depotting your essential skin-care products into portable bottles definitely works, there’s something oh-so-satisfying about toting around your beloved products in adorable, tiny packages. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best travel-size skin-care minis ahead, all of which will make your trip just a little more enjoyable (and moisturized).
See our picks, ahead:
This lightweight facial cream is a must-have for your carry on. It’s hydrating and has skin-loving ingredients like glacial glycoprotein and squalane, which is known for its moisturizing properties. Stash this in your bag and slather it on before your next flight.
Perfect for particularly thirsty skin, the Drunk Elephant Luxury Facial Oil Mini is 100-percent pure marula oil, and it comes straight from the pip of the marula fruit. This oil absorbs quickly, so you don’t have to worry about it leaving a slick, greasy residue.
A good vitamin C serum is essential for any carry-on (and more widely, your skin-care routine). The powerhouse serum contains antioxidant properties that can help protect skin from free radicals by neutralizing oxidative stress that causes cell damage and also helps brighten the look of skin. This oil-free, fast-absorbing option from Ole Henriksen is one of our faves, thanks to its sweet citrus scent and undeniably luxe texture.
Necessary for days when your skin needs an extra shot of moisture, the IT Cosmetics Mini Confidence In a Cream offers hydration and radiance while also minimizing the appearance of pores. Formulated with collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and colloidal oatmeal, it’s the perfect cocktail for smoother-looking, more nourished skin.
Few moisturizers are raved about quite like CeraVe Moisturizing Cream. The ceramide-packed drugstore buy has garnered thousands of five-star reviews and even more devoted fans. It’s great for anyone in need of lots of moisture (like anyone who travels frequently or has dry skin) and offers up to 24 hours of hydration.
Formulated specifically for dry skin, the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Moisturizer is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aquabioryl which, together, help lock in moisture and keep skin nourished for up to 48 hours. The formula is ultra-rich, so feel free to slather it on and pop on a sleep mask for an in-flight spa vibe.
