Because sample-size means travel-size.
Packing your skincare and beauty essentials for a trip—even a short one—can be an annoying and arduous task.
It probably means buying miniature bottles of your favorite products before every vacation; or worse, filling those travel-size containers with your preferred brand of face wash or lotion, going through a round of complex calculations to determine exactly how many ounces you’ll need.
Making your beauty regime portable is too often complicated and time-consuming. And somehow, without fail, will require way too much space in your carry-on.
While some road warriors may recommend using that ambiguous hotel bathroom amenity that’s somehow shampoo and face wash and also body lotion, some of us with problematic or sensitive skin don’t think it’s worth the risk.
To make sure you never have to compromise your skincare routine while traveling, try subscribing to a monthly beauty box. With free shipping—which sometimes includes territories outside of the United States—and products that typically come in sample sizes (read: travel-friendly), it really is a no-brainer if you’re a frequent flyer.
From vegan and natural options for the environmentally conscious to high-end makeup and grooming products from cult favorite brands, nothing is off limits. We rounded up the best subscription beauty boxes (including beard grooming and shave kits), because your skin deserves its daily dose of TLC regardless of where you are on Earth.
