Never forget these travel-sized toiletries

Travel light with these pint-sized products that we’re declaring the best in travel toiletries

By Jasmine Dilmanian

So you've packed your carefully selected outfits, travel pillow and other trip essentials. But what about the toiletries? These easily restricted items are such a minefield to navigate in terms of size and quality. In addition to avoiding trouble at security checkpoints, packing travel-size toiletries also means simply packing light.

So to help you out, we've brought together all our personal favorites to take on any vacation. Don't forget these essential travel-size toiletries next time you're packing for a trip away.
