What do shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body wash, and moisturizer all have in common?

They’re all super easy to find as travel size beauty products. As in: if your drugstore doesn’t carry these basics, just cut your losses and find a new drugstore.  But what about all of the other beauty products you’d want to bring on a trip?

I’m talking about the details.  Things like foundation primer, eye makeup remover and self-tanner.  All of the stuff that you still want to pack, but collectively take up a ton of space.

Honestly, if I packed full-size versions of all my daily beauty products, I could probably fill a separate suitcase altogether. And I don’t even think I’m all that high-maintenance. Although now that I write this, I may be reconsidering.

Anyway. Since I almost always travel with a carry on bag, I’m forced to fit everything I need into a tiny one-quart bag.   Yep – eye cream, face serum, eye makeup primer, etc. – all in a little plastic bag. Mission impossible for many of us.

The good news is that it can be done. There is hope!
