    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the PERFECT size and POWER you need for traveling! I love that this is tiny, but is just as powerful as the bigger ones. I've been to 28 countries, and am heading to eight more this year. Get this — you will love it just as much as I do!" —DebLuv'sAmazon

    These products are plant-based and cruelty-free, and the brightening facial scrub is considered a holy grail — the full-sized version has over 2,000 positive reviews.

    Promising review: "I have never been so happy with an Amazon purchase. I recently switched to to sulfate-free everything, so I bought this kit last-minute for a trip. I liked the products so much that I'm switching to this brand for daily use at home! The scrub and the conditioner are, in particular, better than any other sulfate-free products I've tried." —L. Sumpter

    Price: $8.53

    3. A toiletry bag you'll be able to hang up in the hotel bathroom for easy access to all of your, well, toiletries. The compact size means it doesn't take up a ton of room in your suitcase, but the deep pockets allow for a TON of storage.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Was surprisingly shocked at the quality and durability of this product. We were long overdue for a new travel toiletry bag and with an upcoming trip, we decided to give this one a try. This particular bag fit full-sized bottles, has a metal hanger, and was STILL small enough to not take up much space. Definitely a lot of bang for your buck!" —David Washburn

    Price: $18.98 (available in five colors)

    4. Packing cubes capable of helping you fit your entire 👏 friggin' 👏 wardrobe 👏 inside your carry-on. Plus, this keeps everything lookin' niiiiice and neat.

    amazon.com

    One set = four different packing cubes, each a different size that accommodates to different items.

    Promising review: "I am officially sold on packing cubes!! These things are amazing! I can believe I've been packing without them my whole life. The mesh lining allows you to peek inside, and I was able to pack all my clothes, shoes, and toiletries for a 10-day trip to Europe (full contents listed below). I packed them as I normally would first, and then packed them in the packing cubes. There was SO much more room in my luggage after packing everything in the cubes! Items I fit in the cubes and bag include two jackets, one jean vest, four pants/capris, two pairs of shorts, one romper, four dresses, one maxi skirt, seven tank tops, four shirts, three camisoles, three pajama sets, 15 undies, six pairs of socks, and four pairs of shoes. But why are you still reading?? Go buy these cubes!" —Tiffany

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This journal = the ultimate time capsule.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome purchase, especially for young adventurers. I bought this for myself at a local bookstore, and I can't help but get super excited about everything I am filling out. It's inspiring to scour the internet for all of the 'natural wonders, formations, and phenomena' I want to see. On the other end of the spectrum, it includes 'spiritual places, islands, and volunteer travel'. The format is very well-organized and, if you are a list-maker like myself, you will immediately fall in love with this book. It covers every possible travel topic in a simple, easy fashion. I plan on keeping this small journal as long as I travel (which will hopefully last a lifetime)!" —Deb

    Price: $16.95

    6. Mini Wet Brush brushes designed with flexible bristles to detangle your (very tangled) 'do without painfully pulling chunks of hair out in the process. And yep, these portable babies are perfect for both wet and dry manes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have placed these in every place that we end up brushing our hair — bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, swim bag. This is the best hairbrush ever! Does not pull your hair and is easy for my young girls to use on their own." —KM

    Price: $12.99 (for a set of three)

    7. Compression socks to keep your adorable little piggies (...your feet, duh) from swelling up while hovering about a billion miles in the air. Did I happen to mention that these have over 7,000 positive reviews? I didn't? Well, they do.

    Gyan Yankovich / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "With three weeks of international travel coming up, I purchased these to combat swelling in my feet during the flights. I had noticed swelling after three hour domestic flights, so I was worried about what almost 30k miles would do! I wore these on every leg of the trip and never noticed any swelling — even after the 10-15 hour flights. They are very comfortable, too!" —J. Beaty

    Price: $14.95+ (available in sizes S-XL and in nine colors)

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review of these compression socks.

    8. Luggage tags available in a bunch of vibrant, distinguishable colors that make spotting your suitcase at baggage claim into a no-fuss breeze.

    Promising review: "Bought these for a trip across the country (I went through five airports) and these made it easy to identify my suitcase at baggage claim. Happy with the quality for money spent!" —AnnMarie Johnston

    Price: $6.39 (for a pack of two, available in 19 colors)

    9. An essential oil roll-on stick with a pretty bizarre appetite. The main thing it craves? Your migraines. This will gobble 'em up and get rid of all those annoying headaches with pleasure.

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    This roll-on stick is packed with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils. How do you use it? When you feel a migraine coming on (ugh), just apply this to your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck — it'll give you a blast of cool relief that will lessen that pesky headache (and in some cases, get rid of it completely).

    Price: $10.99

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review of this migraine stick.

    10. An Olympia rolling duffel bag perfect for the chronic overpacker. You can hypothetically shove 11 dresses, 19 tops, 18 sneakers, and your entire makeup bag in here — and you'll *still* have room to spare. Magic! It exists!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I did so much research when looking for a duffel for a recent five-day trip to NYC. I could not believe what a great bag this is for the price! It can fit an extraordinary amount of stuff inside. It's crazy. The zippers are great, the durability is great, and I haven't had any wheel or handle issues. Awesome bang for your buck!" —Jen Robinson

    Price: $35.29 (available in 17 colors)

    11. A TSA-approved transparent organizer so that you don't have to fish around your suitcase for liquids (and then stuff them in a clear baggy) while going through airport security. As if flying isn't nerve-wracking enough.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am a flight attendant, and this case is perfect for all my international flights that require going through security. Plus, love the handle. It makes it easy to pull out of my suitcase!" —Krissti

    Price: $12.86 (available in nine colors)

    12. Biodegradable body wipes made with tea tree oil, peppermint, aloe, and ginseng that will leave your skin feeling refreshed, clean, and not dry or sticky. Plus, they're lavender-scented which basically means you're already relaxed.

    instagram.com / Via @goodwipes

    These wipes are also hypoallergenic and won't irritate sensitive skin. Hip hip HOORAY!

    Promising review: "I LOVE these things! I like to workout over my lunch hour to break up the day, but don't have time to get lost in my thoughts in a post-shower. I just use one of these! The scent is not too overpowering, but it's strong enough so that no one knows I got my sweat on at the gym." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $12.99 (for a set of 10)

    13. A neck pillow with chin support designed to help your head remain upright. This'll prevent your noggin from falling down whenever you begin to snooze.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Awesome travel pillow! I normally have a very hard time dozing off on planes (especially as someone who prefers the aisle seat), and my head almost always drops forward when I do finally manage to sleep, ensuring I have neck pain when I wake up. This pillow totally prevented that from happening! t's also small, compact, and lightweight compared to other neck pillows I've tried in the past, which helped me pack light for a backpacking trip in Southeast Asia!" —Nola

    Price: $29.97 (available in seven colors)

    This is our pick for the best mid-priced travel pillow on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    14. TSA-approved silicone bottles that let you pack your go-to moisturizers, shampoos, and face washes — WITHOUT HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT ANY LEAKAGE.

    Amazon

    These babies have anti-leak caps, meaning your conditioner won't ooze out of the bottle and ruin all your clothes en route to your all-inclusive vacation.

    Promising review: "I work for the airline industry, and as such, I am in airports and on airplanes all the time. That's where these guys have come in handy! These travel bottles have saved me on multiple occasions: it's so nice to to be able to just fill them with my favorite shampoos, conditioners, lotions, etc. They are the perfect size and volume for carry-on luggage allowances, the flexible silicone makes it easy to get every last ounce of product out of the bottles, and they are totally leak-proof! If you're on the fence about this product, don't be! I would give this more than five stars if I could." —Shivani

    Price: $8.99 (for a set of three, available in five colors)

    15. A compact travel umbrella you'll want to pack for when the destinations you're visiting are KIND OF RUDE when it comes to rainy weather. *cough London cough*

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This one os great quality, small enough to fit in your bag, and won't take up a ton of room in your suitcase. PLUS, it's inexpensive. Woo!

    Promising review: "I bought this umbrella to take with me on my honeymoon to London, and boy am I glad I had this with me — it rained like crazy! What I love most about this umbrella is how portable it is: it's small enough to just throw into your backpack, it comes with a sleeve to keep the rest of your bag dry, and the price is so reasonable!" —Lindsay Anne

    Price: $12.96

    16. A trolley-inspired two-piece set so adorably vintage-inspired, it physically hurts to look at it. The larger suitcase is 24 inches while the smaller bag is 12 inches — AKA it has the perfect amount of room for your need-to-grab items (I'm looking at you, TSA-approved contact solution).

    Amazon

    Some other great things about this set? It comes with a matching luggage tag, the bag can be attached to the suitcase handles with an included extra strap, and you can even wear the smaller bag on a daily basis — it'll fit comfortably on your shoulder while looking extremely chic.

    Promising review: "I am blown away with how adorable this luggage set is!! There is a huge attention to detail right down to the lining. There's a matching luggage tag on the big bag, the extending handle is a really pretty rose gold color that looks so nice, and even the spinner wheels go with the color scheme. The small bag has a special strap that affixes it to the handle of the larger bag so it all stays put. And the final unexpected bonus is that this luggage is so darn cute, I actually have it sitting in the corner of my home office. I'm storing it in plain sight because it doubles as a pretty home decor when not in use!" —Elizabeth G.

    Price: $164.99 (available in three colors)

    17. A fast-drying, super-absorbent microfiber towel you can use in bathrooms and beaches. It even comes with an easy storage pouch that won't take up a ton of suitcase space.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I took this towel on a two week trip through Austria and Slovakia, and I am SO glad I did. It was perfect: it didn't take up much space, and it dried SUPER quickly. If you are a backpacker or even just a casual traveler, this thing is made for you! Also, I bought the lime green color which made it VERY easy for me to find my towel." —brandon short

    Price: $8.99+ (available in seven colors and six sizes)

    18. An on-the-go razor that guarantees a close, smooth shave while taking up almost 0 space in your luggage. Goodbye, horrible disposable razors I *used* to pack!

    Amazon

    This razor is designed with five blades, and comes with an extra blade and a compact storage case with holes at the bottom (that way water doesn't get trapped inside the blades AKA it won't rust). Woo!

    Promising review: "I cannot express how much my daughter and I love these razors! They are perfect for traveling, and the little grip is much easier to hold on to than I expected. Now there is no need to take those awful disposable razors on vacation — we can use the same quality razor that we used at home." —Anitra W.

    Price: $7.39

    19. A travel wallet because there is NOTHING WORSE than losing a connecting boarding pass while on a plane. Is it underneath your seat? In the carry-on you stored in the overhead compartment? DID YOU DROP IT EN ROUTE TO THE PLANE?

    Amazon

    This is designed with a passport slot and five card slots, a removable wristlet, a cellphone pouch, AND a pen holder — all while remaining slim enough to store in your tiny carry-on purse.

    Promising review: "Honestly, this is the perfect travel wallet. It fits both of my passports, my phone, a pen, and some cash. I bought it in a bright red color that meant I could find it right away, and the strap is also useful." —Suman S.

    Price: $9.99+ (available in 24 colors)

    20. A Mario Badescu facial spray because flying wreaks absolute havoc on your skin, please don't tell me otherwise. This lovely option is packed with aloe, herbs, and rose water for a blast of hydration and dewiness.

    instagram.com / Via @mariobadescu

    Psst, this facial spray comes in a set of two! One with four fluid ounces, the other with two fluid ounces (AKA travel-sized).

    Promising review: ""The redness on my cheeks has gone way down and I have a much more even complexion after just four days. I've been lightly spraying this on my face after cleansing with the Mario Badescu Rice Milk Carnation Cleanser and again first thing upon waking. It smells very nice and magically fixes skin problems — even my acne has cleared up! I'm very impressed." —Terryoke

    Price: $7+

    21. Neoprene handle wraps available fluorescent colors you can hypothetically spot from space. Or at the very least, you can spot them from baggage claim.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love how these make it easy to see when my bags are at baggage claim. Everyone has a suitcase that looks alike, but we put this on every piece of luggage and spent only 30 seconds at baggage claim!" —Blunt Truth

    Price: $9.99 (for a set of five, available in 11 colors)

    22. A jade roller you'll want to add to your in-flight skincare routine ASAP. This little facial massager is said to promote circulation, tighten skin, and help with lymphatic drainage to keep your face feeling glorious and de-puffed (which is especially helpful while flying).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I used this product for the first time with my face oil and it’s safe to say that I am obsessed! I put it in the freezer for a couple of hours before using and it was so refreshing. I currently have a head cold and this jade roller really helped relieve some of the pressure in my sinus areas. I suffer sever migraines and am looking forward to seeing if the roller can help relieve some of that pressure as well! My favorite part is the smaller side — I love to use it under my eyes and on my temples." —Karlie Velvick

    Price: $12.95

    23. A palm-sized Crystal deodorant stick that banishes BO + smelly bacteria to the ~pits~ of HECK (you can thank the mineral salt formula for that). It's also cruelty-free, aluminum-free, fragrance-free, and vegan, and won't leave any white marks on your black top.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I kept trying to figure out who the guy was at the gym who wasn't aware of his B.O. Once I learned that it was my own stink following me around, I went on a quest to find a solution. Several different over-the-counter antiperspirant/deodorant products failed me, so I finally tried this on a whim. I tend to avoid most of this 'natural' hippy dippy stuff. In this case though, I've become a believer. This works better than anything I've ever used. It doesn't stop the sweating, but has totally killed the stink. It's been totally effective and I haven't had any irritation." —myrrick

    Price: $3

    24. A Rockland two-piece set with a carry-on that'll fit perfectly into any overhead bin, and a smaller bag you can comfortably stuff under the seat in front of you. That's right, folks! No more sharing legroom with your slightly-too-large backpack.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This set was amazing for my 11-day trip to five countries. It went through many airports, into trunks, out of trunks, into overhead bins, then out of overhead bins. Up and down escalators, through customs, on and off of trains and buses. It survived! I used packing cubes that allowed me to fit a large selection of clothes. The smaller bag also holds a lot of stuff, has the right amount of pockets, and fit perfectly under the seat in front of me. This was an excellent value for the price!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $40.41 (for a set of two, available in 60 colors)

    25. A collapsible water bowl for our fellow canine companions. This food-grade, silicone item is perfect for when you're traveling with your good boy, but have 0 space in your backpack.

    Amazon

    This is the perfect 'lil thing to bring along with you on hikes and camping trips!

    Promising review: "As a part-time dog walker, a collapsible water bowl is an absolute necessity — especially in the sweltering summer. I didn't have the highest expectations for these because they're so cheap, but after a few weeks of regular use, I can say that I have no complaints. The size is reasonable (I've used it for tiny and large dogs), it dries pretty quickly, and I love the carrying loop and carabiner!" —AF

    Price: $7.89 (for a set of two, available in two colors)

    26. A lipstick-sized portable charger so that your phone DOES NOT DIE in the middle of that Law & Order: SVU season you downloaded SPECIFICALLY for this flight.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've been using this charger for a while now on road trips and music festivals, and it works absolutely great. I'm able to get at least one full charge of my iPhone out of it and usually more (depending on how much I'm using my phone at the time). Plus, it's small and I can usually find somewhere to keep it safe while I'm carrying it around." —Joey L.

    Price: $19.99+ (available in five colors)

    27. A helpful checklist that will remind you to pack underwear, deodorant, contact lens solution, and all the other essentials that you ALWAYS FORGET TO BRING. I'm looking at you, toothbrush.

    Amazon

    Do I have 900 maxi dresses in my suitcase? Of course! But did I pack my contact solution? Nope! No sir!

    Promising review: "My girlfriend loves this! She suffers heavily from wanderlust as well as forgetfulness, so this helps her immensely with both. She loves the amount of detail this list has, and it really helps her remember the little things." —Adam Despen

    Price: $6.52

    28. A magnifying mirror that folds into a travel-friendly compact OR can be adjusted to stand upright. This compact is designed with LED lights to ensure bad lighting doesn't get in the way of your killing the makeup game.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This mirror is just what I have been looking for! In fact, I just ordered another one for a gift and may order more. The mirror is sized perfectly for every day use and for travel (since it's so small when it folds flat). Both mirrors are high quality, the lighted portion is perfect for makeup application, and I like the fact that this mirror uses four 'AAA' batteries (which are included) because they are more readily available than button batteries." —Penny C. Tanquary

    Price: $18.99 (available in two colors)

    29. Kleenex tissues you'll want to have on hand at all times. I'm relieved that winter is almost over, but allergy season is here — and my runny nose is about to make a comeback.

    Amazon

    Each individual pack comes with ten tissues, which makes the pack itself super compact and won't take up a ton of room in your purse.

    Promising review: "My goodness, what's not to like about Kleenex? I am a member of a sports team booster club and my job is putting together 'welcome bags' for visiting parents. In addition to local things to do and places to visit, I add some small travel necessities — like these packs of Kleenex. Mom may shed a tear, or it may be allergy season, but everyone needs a tissue at some time or another." —Pam in NC

    Price: $8.33 (for a pack of 16)

    30. A travel-sized Batiste dry shampoo capable of making your 'do look freshly-washed by the time you land at your destination. Grease? You don't know her. You're too busy traveling the world to even think about her.... *nervous giggle*

    instagram.com / Via @batiste_us

    Not to mention this adds immediate volume to even the flattest hair.

    Promising review: "After trying several dry shampoos and thinking that none of them would work for me, I finally found a product that does what it's supposed to do — and VERY WELL!!! My flat hair had immediate volume and smelled great!!" —SD

    Price: $11.97 (for a pack of three)

    31. Button extenders that I wish I purchased before inhaling my Thanksgiving dinner. These durable babies add an extra 1" to your waistline and can be used on jeans, slacks, and Jake from State Farm-inspired khakis.

    amazon.com

    Unbuttoning your pants on a plane = just don't do it. But these give you a little extra room so you can comfortably watch your in-flight movie without becoming a concern to your fellow passengers.

    Promising review: "We all have those favorite pair of pants or shirts that we look absolutely great in; you gain a little weight and goodbye to those favorite pants and shirts. That was BEFORE running across this product on Amazon. That pile of clothes that no longer fit are no longer a problem because I get all the 'extra space' I need by applying one of these comfy things. If you are like me and have clothes that no longer fit, this product is a better investment that spending on a new wardrobe. Buy this product and tell all your friends your new secret." —Paganni's Ghost

    Price: $8.95 (available in three colors)

    32. A non-toxic, before-you-go Poo-Pourri toilet spray formulated with a concentrated blend of essential oils that will neutralize funky bathroom odors. Yes, the kind that you cause.

    Amazon

    So how does this work? WELL! Before you go to do your business, spray this directly into the toilet bowl — the spiced apple scent, for example, will cover the surface of your toilet water with a blend of apple, pecan, and citrus natural essential oils and all smelly smells will be gone.

    Promising review: "We are a family of six in a small one-bathroom house. This is, to put it lightly, a horrific nightmare — particularly after my teenage son spends some time in the bathroom. After a couple of weeks of gentle encouragement ('YOU ARE KILLING EVERYONE. SPRAY THAT STUFF ON THE WATER BEFORE YOU POOP OR I'M TAKING AWAY YOUR PHONE AND, SO HELP ME GOD, I WILL CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND AND TELL HER EXACTLY WHY YOU GOT IT TAKEN AWAY.') he started using it regularly. The bathroom is much less disgusting after he leaves now." —Supa D.

    Price: $6.28

    33. Odor eliminators because dirty clothes + overused shoes + a small bag = SMELLINESS. But not with these bamboo and charcoal bags!

    Amazon

    These deodorizing bags are chemical-free, prevent mold and mildew, and can be used for up two two years! Toss one in your carry-on and the other in your suitcase to keep your clothes smelling fresh.

    Promising review: "These are the best travel buddies! I always pack one of these in my luggage and one in my boyfriend's. While traveling, we sometimes don't get to wash all our clothes, but these bags are brilliant at absorbing the smell of sweat on our clothes and shoes!" —J.L.

    Price: $9.90 (for a set of two)

    34. Disposable silicone earplugs here to help you say goodbye to discomfort. Ear pain during air travel is REAL, and babies have every reason to cry because of it. Just saying.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this product! Every couple of trips, no matter what tricks I try, I cannot clear my ears. The ear pain is immense at takeoff (I completely understand why those babies and toddlers wail!), and then I'm hard of hearing for days. With these, that has never happened. A few other people near me had ear pain and I did not, so I was very grateful I'd bought this product." —Amy Clark

    Price: $14.25 (for a pack of 6)

    35. A spray hand sanitizer that kills — Destroys! Obliterates! — 99.99% of icky germs that cause all **cough cough, I can't come, I'm sick** situations.

    Amazon

    Planes breed bacteria. Disinfect everything. EVERYTHING.

    Promising review: "Umm, this stuff is amazing. I usually hate hand sanitizer because of the way it makes my hands feel after, but this leaves zero film on your hands and it also smells delightful. I also love that it's a spray. Easy for kiddos and adults alike!" —Rebecca Rucker

    Price: $6.99+
