11 Reusable Toiletry Bottles That Make Traveling Suck Less


As if modern travel wasn't enough of a soul-crushing time suck, the 3 oz. liquid requirements make it a moisture-sucking one, too. Even if you fork over the $50 fee to check your favorite skin-care products in your carry-on, you'll still have to last through three long hours in a pressurized cabin without your jumbo face mist and hydrating serum — and nobody needs that.But what if you could have the best of both worlds by transferring all your favorite products into easy-to-carry, reusable, TSA-approved bottles? Not only are they cheaper than travel-sized bottles in the long run, but they're also better for the environment because they cut down on unnecessary packaging. We've rounded up some of the best options — from jars and tubes to portable misters and even fragrance decanters — ahead.AdvertisementAt Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.
