Thankfully, a growing number of companies are becoming hip to the challenges faced by frequent travelers in the never-ending quest for top-quality, TSA-friendly personal care products. A few to try on your next trek:

  • The new Travelux Skincare Set Travel Duo from SASE includes luxurious multitasking products that might even leave a little extra room in your bag. Boasting flyer-friendly packaging in small sizes, the Hydra-Purifying Cleanser 3-in-1 cleanses, exfoliates and acts as a hydrating mask, while the Advanced Hydra-Illuminating Skin Therapy 4-in-1 moisturizes and acts as a rich serum, eye cream and neck cream. Both products are built with antioxidants, peptides, skin-nourishing oils and probiotics.Lancôme
  • Lancôme adds a touch of luxury with great travel-sized makeup bag essentials: mini-sized Hypnose Drama Mascara for that night at the opera, and Bi-Facial Double Action Eye Makeup Remover to take it off when you’re back in your penthouse suite. Other choices in perfectly proportioned sizes include La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer Smoothing Effect with light diffusing action and proprietary Elasto-Smooth technology.
  • Created by leading physicians in stem cell science at Rescue Skin’s high-tech California laboratory, individual packets that slip easily into your TSA-mandated personal care bag address a host of issues including windburn, puffiness, dry skin, thinning skin, redness and dark spots. Each single-use packet delivers up one serving of rich Serum Concentrate and one Ultra Moisturizer designed for preventative and regenerative skin care.
  • With an eco-friendly “farm to farmacy” philosophy that utilizes healing organic herbs and pure essential oils, and skips aluminum, Propanediol, propylene glycol and artificial ingredients, the small, easily-packable tins in the First Aid Travel Pack from Green Goo by Sierra Sage come in blends such as Pain Relief (with arnica for sprains, sore muscles, bruises and joint pain); Dry Skin (with calendula flower for cracked skin, rashes, eczema and psoriasis); First Aid (with olive oil and a proprietary herbal blend for scrapes, insect bites, rashes, sunburn and poison ivy); and Skin Repair (with aloe vera and vitamin E for puffy eyes, minor burns and after-sun care).
