Travel-size products have two benefits — the first, obvious one, is that you can pack them into your carry-on and don’t need to worry about TSA confiscating them. The second is that they’re low commitment and the perfect way to try something before purchasing a full-sized product. As we close out 2020 are a lot of great new beauty products to try that will enrich your next trip or can simply be enjoyed at home.
1. London Grant Honey Coco Body Polish (pictured above)
Whether you want your skin to be soft and glistening on vacation or want to banish winter dryness, this travel-size London Grant body polish is your ticket to soft, beautiful skin. The polish combines raw honey with Brazilian cane and coconut palm sugars to gently exfoliate. It also features jojoba, sweet almond and raw coconut oil which will leave your skin moisturized and glowing. Founder Tiffany Staten created the brand in search of using only the best, clean ingredients and once you step out of the shower your skin will feel like new.
2. Everyday Humans Germaphobe Hand & Surface Sanitizer
Now that masks are a standard part of our lives, we need to make sure to keep them clean. This Everyday Humans spray makes it super easy to sanitize while on the road or in between errands. Just remove your mask and spritz, to disinfect and refresh your mask. Just in time for the holidays they even have a pine scented version to get you into the merry spirit.

4. Mischo Nail Polish
A new coat of nail polish is an instant mood lifter, especially when it comes in a captivating color.

Keep one of these in your travel bag to update your nails on the go in an impossibly chic hue.
Okay so this CBD oil isn’t strictly a beauty product but it leads to restful beauty sleep, always a win. oHHo’s New York CBD oil is sustainably grown in the Hudson Valley and contains terpenes, myrcene and humulene to help you catch those extra zzzs. It has a natural flavor with a light woody note and a few drops directly in your mouth before bed will help you nod off. At 15 ml, it’s small enough to be your travel sleep aid. (While this oil contains no psychoactive compound and is perfectly legal to travel with in the US, you may want to avoid bringing this to a country with stringent laws in this regard, i.e. Singapore or United Arab Emirates.)
