We’ve waxed poetic on the topic before, and we’ll say it again — we love a good sheet mask. 15 minutes with one on your face and it’s smoother, firmer and unbelievably moisturized. You can find them at the drugstore or high-end boutiques, so there’s definitely one for every budget. We find them imperative while traveling — they eliminate dry skin in a jiffy!

Forget the bulky, oversized cleanser bottles at home. With a cleansing wipe, your makeup comes off and your skin looks and feels fresh in seconds! And, an added bonus? They can be thrown in any purse, laptop bag or suitcase without a TSA agent breathing down your neck.

Nail Polish Remover Towelettes
We have a nail polish problem — we like to change it up way too often for our own good! Who wants to carry around nail polish remover? Luckily, these remover-soaked pads remove every trace of polish in under three minutes and majorly cut down on the bottles and jars we have to fit in our carry on.
