When you’re traveling — to work, for the weekend, across the country — it helps to carry things in small sizes. You may need a lot of the things in your medicine cabinet throughout your trip, but you can’t fit your whole medicine cabinet in your work purse or carry on bag. You could hit up the travel-size section of your local CVS for the solution — but if you’re the type to care about ingredients in your products, you won’t have much luck.
With the help of the Internet, however, you’ve got an array of gentler, greener and cleaner travel-size toiletries at your disposal. I know this because I travel a lot, shop on the Internet a lot, am particular about the ingredients in what I use and really like tiny products. So here are five on-the-go hygiene and beauty solutions that won’t weigh your body or bag down.

Remove old nail polish quickly without worrying about spills.

Dr. Bronner's Pure Castille Soap
Dr. Bronner's is the best for traveling because you can use it as body wash, face wash, shampoo, hand soap and a zillion other things. And Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps is a certified fair trade company that's about as eco-friendly, organic and clean as you can get.
Comodynes Self-Tanning Towelettes
Comodynes self-tanning towelettes let you swipe on a bronze glow without the disgusting smell or the mess of most self-tanners. Each individually-wrapped, napkin-sized towelette is pre-soaked with a paraben-free, moisturizing tanning formula that relies on the sugar Dehydroxiacetone for pigment.
Roll-On Vitamin E Oil
Instead of carrying around different lotions and creams for different parts of your body, treat your lips, face, arms, ass or anywhere that's dry to some nourishing and moisturizing vitamin E oil. The roll-on container makes it easy for travel.
