Everyone loves to travel but are you traveling like a pro?
Here are some hacks from our trusted customers and staff members who can travel to the end of the world with just a carry-on.
1. Sample Size = Travel Size
There’s plenty of stores that love to throw in a few samples with every purchase (Nordstrom’s & Sephora, we’re looking at you) and these are perfect for travel. Best part is they’re free.
2. Roughing It vs. The Ritz
Love AirBnB’s but often times they come up short in the toiletry department. Bring all the necessities when you’re not paying top dollar for accommodations.
3. Take What You Paid For
First class accommodations usually come with top notch products. Grab all the toiletries your tsa approved bag can handle, after all you paid for it.
4. Pack Local, Think Global
When traveling abroad, keep in mind that all countries have different rules about what makes it through security. Play it safe if you don't want to risk throwing away something valuable.
5. CVS Dollar Aisle
If you’re not too particular about which products you take, CVS and other drug stores have a number of travel size options for only a dollar or so.
6. DIY Travel Size
There are a number of stores that sell empty travel size bottles. Fill up with your full-size favorites and you’re good to go.
7. One Soap, One Million Purposes
Castile soap is the soap of all soaps. It can be used as a body wash and shampoo. You can even use it to wash clothes by hand, wash dishes and even do some light surface cleaning. Just take a couple of ounces, dilute when ready to use and all you're good to go.
8. Raise the Bar
Ditch the liquid soap for bar form. It doesn’t count as a liquid but make sure to bring a plastic bag if your travel involves city hopping.
9. Stay fresh
Pack face wipes for long haul flights to refresh as you go.
Pro tip: they work for places other than your face.
