Who else is ready for spring to show its face? If you’ve got some epic spring break travel plans lined up, pack your bag with these top portable beauty products for spring break. That way, you can keep all your favorite products safely at home and don’t have to worry about losing them, but can still look and feel fabulous.
During my year teaching abroad in Japan, I became kind of a master of fitting everything I could possibly want and need in life into a tiny little backpack. Fortunately, Japan is all about creating small and adorable products, and I was completely obsessed with finding cool and quirky little travel-sized beauty products and cosmetics at the drugstores over there. Admittedly, not all of my purchases were entirely practical. I mean, did I really need the miniature rainbow-colored tweezers, lip balm, nail polish, and razors? Probably not. C’est la vie.
Below you’ll find a few more practical portable beauty product choices to fill your travel bag with, and most can be easily found at your local pharmacy. Each one meets TSA safety and size regulations, so you can toss them in your carry on bag without worrying at all. #Win
