Jet-setters, busy girls, lazy ladies, and cleansing connoisseurs — this one’s for you. Forget about lotions that get messy, and say sayonara to watery cleansers that you have to pump or squeeze out (what is the right amount, anyway?!). Open your mind to the wonderful world of travel-friendly skin care and makeup sticks that transform your fave formulas into solid form. We’re talking about it all, people: cleansers, lotion, foundation, and more. Keep reading for the best picks.
Cleansing Sticks: When a travel-friendly wipe just won’t do, massage your cleansing stick of choice over damp skin to get squeaky clean. They’re portable and totally TSA-approved. Brit + Co pick: NEOGEN Real Fresh Green Tea Cleansing Stick ($22)
Lotion Sticks: Instead of slathering on lotion, why not swipe on a solid version? The moisturizer is perfect for targeting dry spots that need a little extra love on the go — think rough elbows, the back of your knees, and cuticles, for example. Brit + Co pick: H20 Plus Beauty On the Move Body Butter Stick ($15)
Foundation Sticks: When you’re in a pinch, out and about, or just looking to simplify your beauty routine, a foundation stick is a must-have. It gets the job done without the need for a brush or additional application tools — your fingers will do just fine. Since foundation is prone to spillage when packed in a purse or carry-on, eliminating that disaster is a win in itself. Brit + Co pick: Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Foundation ($25)
Fragrance Sticks: Smelling good is a non-negotiable — especially when you’re traveling. Fragrance sticks are concentrated, solid offerings of your fave liquid perfumes, which makes them ideal for jet setters. Rub your fingers or a cotton swab into the solid and dab it wherever you want to smell fresh. No spills, no broken glass bottles, and no hassle. Brit + Co pick: Diptyque Eau Rose Solid Perfume ($50)
