1.A silicone travel mat that is heat-resistant up to 450°F and prevents you from ruining expensive things (like, gee, furniture). Feel free to wrap this around a hot tool before it's completely cooled down, with peace of mind that you won't burn anything in your suitcase.
2.Compression socks to keep your adorable little piggies (...your feet, duh) from swelling up while hovering about a billion miles in the air. Did I happen to mention that these have over 7,000 positive reviews? I didn't? Well, they do.
3.An emergency grooming kit because the only thing worse than a hangnail...is a hangnail while you're on vacation. How are you supposed to snap a picture holding an ice cream cone when your manicure is all kinds of messed up?
4.A jade roller you'll want to add to your in-flight skincare routine ASAP. This little facial massager is said to promote circulation, tighten skin, and help with lymphatic drainage to keep your face feeling glorious and de-puffed (which is especially helpful while flying).
5.A helpful checklist that will remind you to pack underwear, deodorant, contact lens solution, and all the other necessities that you forget to bring. Do you have 18 pairs of shoes? Of course. But did you pack your toothbrush? Hmm, probably not.
6.Hydrocolloid, tea tree, and calendula oil pimple patches you should slap on a zit to a) prevent picking, and b) speed up the ~draining~ process of said zit. No annoying I-need-to-pick-at-them blemishes to distract you from enjoying the sites of Paris, Italy, or wherever the heck you are.
7.An LED ring light that lets you bid adieu to crappy lightning that *no* amount of editing can fix. Just clip this onto your cell and voilà! Your #wanderlust Instagram posts will be at least 1000x stronger.
8.A first aid kit because one minute you're enjoying a nice hike and the next minute your foot is bleeding. Being clumsy + enjoying the great outdoors = you should always have antiseptic on hand.
9.A lipstick-sized portable charger so that your phone DOES NOT DIE in the middle of that Law & Order: SVU season you downloaded SPECIFICALLY for this flight.
10.A four-wheel underseater small enough to not feel like a *total* nuisance at the airport, but large enough to store all your in-flight essentials. Headphones! Tablets! Contact solution! This pretty BB can hold it all.
11.An Acure essentials kit complete with hydrating shampoo and conditioner, as well as a cult-favorite facial scrub and day cream. Say "GOODBYE" to the days of those drying, hotel-specific mini formulas!
12.Neoprene handle wraps available influorescent colors you can hypothetically spot from space. Or at the very least, you can spot them from baggage claim.
13.A TSA-approved transparent organizer so that you don't have to fish around your suitcase for liquids (and then stuff them in a clear baggy) while going through airport security. As if flying isn't nerve-wracking enough.
14.A Downy wrinkle-eliminating spray for the person who's travelling for business and doesn't feel like showing up to that meeting with a button-down that's wrinkled beyond repair. PLUS! This spray works to eliminate static and odor, which is especially lovely if you're a bit behind on laundry (which I totally am not hahah).
15.A Batiste dry shampoo to fool everyone into thinking that you actually washed your hair last night. This absorbs grease right up and leaves your 'do feeling (and smelling) as if it's actually clean.
16.A fast-drying, super-absorbent microfiber towel you can use in bathrooms and beaches. It even comes with an easy storage pouch that won't take up a ton of suitcase space.
17.A foldable hair dryer that packs something itself: a lot of POWER. This tool may be small, but it is damn mighty and can be folded down into a penny-sized speck that can fit in any corner of your bursting-at-the-seams suitcase.
18.A travel wallet because there is NOTHING WORSE than losing a connecting boarding pass while on a plane. Is it underneath your seat? In the carry-on you stored in the overhead compartment? DID YOU DROP IT EN ROUTE TO THE PLANE?
19.A Palladio two-in-one tint you can swipe on your pout *and* your cheeks for a healthy flush that looks au naturale. This multi-use product is perfect for people traveling with an itty bitty carry-on...the kind that cannot accommodate your entire beauty arsenal.
20.An Olympia rolling duffel bag perfect for the chronic overpacker. You can hypothetically shove 11 dresses, 19 tops, 18 sneakers, and your entire makeup bag in here — and you'll *still* have room to spare. Magic! It exists!
21.A neck pillow with chin support designed to help your head remain upright. This'll prevent your noggin from falling down whenever you begin to snooze.
22.Individually-wrapped antibacterial hand and face wipes you should carry with you on the go, just in case your lipstick smears or (surprise surprise) the sauce from your afternoon lunch still remains on your fingers.
23.A toiletry bag you'll be able to hang up in the hotel bathroom for easy access to all of your, well, toiletries. The compact size means it doesn't take up a ton of room in your suitcase, but the deep pockets allow for a TON of storage.
24.An essential oil roll-on stick with a pretty bizarre appetite. The main thing it craves? Your migraines. This will gobble 'em up and get rid of all those annoying headaches with pleasure.
25.A magnifying mirror that folds into a travel-friendly compact OR can be adjusted to stand upright. This compact is designed with LED lights to ensure bad lighting doesn't get in the way of your killing the makeup game.
26.A silicone spool because tangled headphones are the second most frustrating thing on the planet (forgetting your headphones at home is #1). Imagine being able to pull these out of your purse without having to unknot them for five minutes? Wow.
27.Mini Wet Brush brushes designed with flexible bristles to detangle your (very tangled) 'do without painfully pulling chunks of hair out in the process. And yep, these portable babies are perfect for both wet and dry manes.
28.A compact travel umbrella you'll want to pack for when the destinations you're visiting are KIND OF RUDE when it comes to rainy weather. *cough London cough*
29.A Gillette Venus on-the-go razor that guarantees a close, smooth shave while taking up almost 0 space in your luggage. Goodbye, horrible disposable razors I *used* to pack!
30.Luggage tags available in a bunch of vibrant, distinguishable colors that make spotting your suitcase at baggage claim into a no-fuss breeze.
31.A Mario Badescu facial spray because flying wreaks absolute havoc on your skin, please don't tell me otherwise. This lovely option is packed with aloe, herbs, and rose water for a blast of hydration and dewiness.
32.A palm-sized Crystal deodorant stick that banishes BO + smelly bacteria to the ~pits~ of HECK (you can thank the mineral salt formula for that). It's also cruelty-free, aluminum-free, fragrance-free, and vegan, and won't leave any white marks on your black top.
33.Lightweight Baleaf jogger sweats with a tapered silhouette that looks *way* more polished than your old high school gym pants — but shhh, they're equally as comfy.
34.A spray hand sanitizer because planes breed bacteria and I highly recommend you disinfect everything. This travel spray kills — Destroys! Obliterates! — 99.99% of icky germs that cause all **cough cough, I can't come, I'm sick** situations.
35.A Rockalnd two-piece set with a carry-on that'll fit perfectly into any overhead bin, and a smaller bag you can comfortably stuff under the seat in front of you. That's right, folks! No more sharing legroom with your slightly-too-large backpack.
36.Silicone sleeves you can slip on over the arms of the angel — er, your eyeglasses. This will help prevent all headache-inducing discomfort that comes from your frames digging into your head.
37.Individual floss picks, because that hunk of airport pasta stuck between your two front teeth is just not appealing. These nifty little things are perfect for slipping into your carry-on and preventing all oral hygiene disasters.
38.Biodegradable body wipes made with tea tree oil, peppermint, aloe, and ginseng that will leave your skin feeling refreshed, clean, and not dry or sticky. Plus, they're lavender-scented which basically means you're already relaxed.
