Five Great Travel Size Beauty Products

We’d hate for airport security to snatch up your favorite beauty product (what do they do with confiscated items anyway?) So, we’ve gathered a list of five great beauty items that are travel sized and airline-approved. We chose this list keeping in mind that airports are totally exhausting and the airplane can have a range of temperatures from way too hot to way too cold. So, all of these items are designed to keep you looking your best during travel and to help you freshen up on your layovers!

Travel Size Beauty Products

1. Boots Expert Sensitive Cleansing & Toning Wipes

Boots Expert Cleansing Toning Wipes

Why It’s Awesome: We just can’t get enough of these beauty wipes. They are perfect for airline travel because you can freshen up with them on your layovers. They are gentle enough to moisturize your skin but also strong enough to remove makeup.

Where to Get It: $4.49 at local drugstores.

2. Bath & Body Works Carried Away Fragrance Mist, 3 oz.

Bath and Body Works Carried Away Fragrance Mist

Why It’s Awesome: Bath & Body Works has several of these 3 oz. fragrance sprays that are airline-approved (just be sure to take them out and show security). They’re awesome because they can provide a quick “refresh” without the heavy scent of perfume.

Where to Get It: $5 at Bath & Body Works

3. Burt’s Bees Lip Balm With Pomegranate

Burt's Bees Lip Balm

Why It’s Awesome: Many people get chapped lips on flights so lip balm is a must-have item. This lip balm keeps your lips healthy and the pomegranate-infused version gives your lips a pink tint, too.

Where to Get It: $2.97 at Wal-Mart

4. Fresh Mini Mascara Duo, Supernova and Firebird

Firebird Supernova Mascara

Why It’s Awesome: We’re obsessed with this brand of mascara, but the full version is rather expensive at $2. Still, you can snatch up this little travel set for $10 and enjoy some beauty luxury on your vacation.

Where to Get It: $10 at

5. Maybelline Cover Stick Concealer

Maybelline Stick Concealer

Why It’s Awesome: Having an inexpensive but effective concealer stowed in your bag is a great way to beat the exhaustion.

Where to Get It: $1.39 online and at local drugstores

The last thing we need is anyone spraying or applying any scented product, "natural" or otherwise, in the confines of an airplane.
