Travel Treats

We all love getting away and visiting new places, but getting to our destinations usually requires going to one of the most dreaded places -- the airport. I don't know about you, but I absolutely hate everything about the airport from the long lines to the loads of lost luggage. Plus, the fact that all of our carry-on toiletries must be less than 3 oz and fit into 1 quart-size Ziplock bag.

Lucky for us, a few bath and beauty companies have created convenient kits and smaller sized-products that will lessen our traveling woes.

What are some of your favorite travel-friendly toiletries?

Check out some of these must-have trial sizes and mini-traveling kits.

BGG, you think of everything! Just recently, I was traveling and I completely forgot about my very favorite and very new Neutrogena product. When the lady took it from me I wanted to scream at her but I knew that wouldn't be wise. I so appreciate the travel size kits you have shown here and I will definitely be purching one. I also like the travel size plastic bottles that you can purchase and fill with your own favorite stuff! :-)

Cute post BG and so practical! I hate the whole flying thing, but I do enjoy getting new travel treats! It's like tiny treasures to me. The whole quart size bag thing is so annoying though.

BGG, you are so right. They have taken away all the fun of traveling.
I can't just run and stuff my tote bag at the last minute. Now I need to make sure I have the right amount and it's packed in the right bag.
Thanks for your suggestions. I'd like to try the Korres Body butter.
I need to cream my hands constantly.
And please bring the good days back!!!

Great topic BGG!

I travel a lot and I take all the nice little travel size toiletries from the hotels and recycle them for in my carry-on luggage. The W hotel has Bliss products, The Conrad has Milton Brown. I think the Mariott has Neutrogena and Intecontinental has Bath & Body Works.

much classier than throwing stuff in a zip lock bag :)

YAY! we're taking flight in a couple of days and i just racked up on half of this stuff. YAY for whoever invented travel size stuff. its sooooo convenient...and the best part is, you can trash it when you're leaving....less mess & stress!

All great selections! I hadn't seen the travel kit for women. That looks pretty good.

I love travel sets. Aside from taking them on vacation it's also a good way to try out new products.

RE: Don't like airports.
