Throw these TSA approved skincare, beauty and toiletries in your carry on & you’re good to go!
Travel size toiletries can get out of control. What do we actually really need in our carry travel size toiletries kit? These are the essentials to minimize weighing you down as well as 5 of best travel size makeup and beauty products for looking and feeling fresh. They’re all TSA approved so you can throw them in your carry on and you’re good to go. Especially on trips where you really don’t want to deal with checked bags.
I travel a lot for work and vacation, and have done for more than 20 years. I’ve picked up a lot of tricks along the way to make the load lighter and life easier.
What is the travel size for toiletries
The TSA 3-1-1 liquids rule is:
Each passenger may carry liquids, gels and aerosols in travel-size containers that are 3.4 ounces or100 milliliters. Each passenger is limited to one quart-size bag of liquids, gels and aerosols. Common travel items that must comply with the 3-1-1 liquids rule include toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash and lotion.

Travel Size SOS Beauty Lifesavers
Besides the travel size toiletries essentials, these are my travel size beauty must haves for keeping my skin and lips hydrated, catching any missed patches, smelling fresh and keeping my hair from looking like I’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards.
Sphynx 3-in-1 Razor
This is ideal for on the go touch-ups. I always feel like I miss a spot and this means no embarrassing moments or hairy patches!
Hydrating Lip care mask
Dawes Custom Cosmetics Hydrating Plumping Treatment-I wear this day and night, it smells great and leaves a subtle pink finish.
Apply pre and post flight and anytime during your journey for glowing, hydrated skin. Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Glow Primer $48.13 is my go-to cruelty-free skin fix and also mixes well with foundation.
Sample size perfume
Because no one wants to arrive smelly! A good perfume can cover a multitude of sins.
Charming Charlies hairband bracelet
Airplane air isn’t the kindest to our tresses. When the dry air leaves you with static flyaways or the pillows leave you with bed head just throw your hair in a pony or top knot with this band. The bracelet and hairbands come in lots of color options to coordinate with your outfit.
Yes, the same dryer sheets you use in your tumble dryer. Run these over static hair to calm it down and make it manageable again. You can also run them over any clothes that have got static during your flight.
- Mini dry shampoo
Fly with the powder rather than aerosol version of this. It’s perfect for quick on the go volume, root coverup and giving hair a quick refresher.
