I love flying through airport security checkpoints. Packing solids rather than liquids helps expedite the process. In addition, solids may be cut down to custom travel sizes.
For shorter trips, meaning three weeks or less, I aim to bring two carry-ons, maximum. I pick up products that aren’t allowed in the carrier, such as razors, at my destination.
Here’s a list of quality and affordable options to throw into your bag. (I’ll assume you figured out to bring solid soap without me having to list it).
1. Facial Wipes Or A Multipurpose Soap
A multipurpose soap is great for both your face and body, particularly when you’re trying to travel light. Neutrogena works well on sensitive skin and is available in mainstream chain stores.
2. Tooth Cleansing Tabs
3. Solid Shampoo + Conditioner
The Lush retail chain offers a variety of solid products both in their stores and online. If you’re inclined to support independent artisans, Etsy is recommended.
