1. This mini razor with a mini carrying case that'll put a big smile on your face when you realize how convenient a close, clean shave can be while you're away.
2. A bar of shave gel — it glides on as easily as shaving cream but without the hassle of taking up extra space. Just wet it under a faucet and move it across your skin before using your razor.
3. This slim luggage scale so you'll never be caught with overweight luggage from all those souvenirs again. It's compact enough to fit in a bag or backpack for easy carrying.

5. This tiny, foldable hairdryer that collapses to half its size to give you extra bag space AND a cute 'do while you're exploring the world.
6. Some travel containers that — *deep breath* — are super colorful and adorable, durable and reusable, TSA-approved, and hold the perfect amount of product for a trip.

8. A miniature can of Batiste dry shampoo that delivers gargantuan results. It absorbs oil and adds volume to give day-four hair that ~freshly 'pooed~ look whether you're trudging through the Antarctic cold or braving the Costa Rican heat.
9. Some palm-sized bottles of wrinkle releasing spray because you'll always want a clean-smelling, smooth shirt no matter where your plane ticket takes you.

16. A mini hairbrush (with its own cute, 'lil protective case!!!) that was basically made to fill that last tiny crevice in your carry-on.
17. This adapter cube because it'll take the stress out of converting voltages so you can contently charge your phone and use appliances in your hotel room in Greece without worry about setting anything on fire — hey, I can't be the only one whose paranoid mind stresses about these things!!!
18. A pack of laundry soap sheets to make washing your clothes while you travel sooooo much easier than carrying around a bottle of liquid detergent.

23. Some makeup-removing cloths because they effectively remove ALL of your makeup with just water, and all you have to do is wash and re-use them.
24. This umbrella that's barely the size of a tissue box for those surprise rainy days. For some reason, we seem to forget that weather still exists when we're traveling and having the time of our lives??
