Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them.

    1. A silk mask, essential if you're planning to take a super long flight or you're going to be a passenger in a cross-country road trip.

    a black silk sleep mask

    Promising review: "This is super comfy, silky smooth, and completely dark. Perfect for blocking out the lights. The band can be plenty tight or loose. No weird smell. Has some padding to it that is comfortable. Really smooth. I like it." —Lindsay

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in eight colors).

    2. Blue-light-blocking glasses, in case you're the type to read on your Kindle or binge-watch an entire series during a flight.,

    Promising review: "I love these glasses. I'm a migraine sufferer, and these glasses are so helpful in just blocking out the blue light on my computer and other tech devices, but also when it's too bright outside. I often wear them when I'm driving, and they're extremely helpful when the sun is shining way too bright for anyone's comfort. Additionally, since it snows so much in Chicago, the sunlight reflects on the pristine white snow and hurts my eyes. But, with these glasses on, I'm able to drive without wearing sunglasses and my eyes aren't straining anymore. They're just all around helpful, and I no longer feel like I'm risking my life out on the road." —Kaytee

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 22 styles).

    3. A set of reusable cleansing pads, so you can wash away that tired, grimy feeling without packing a million facial wipes.

    a reviewer holding one of the cotton rounds in a mesh bag

    Promising review: "I ordered these as a low-waste alternative to using cotton balls/etc as a means of removing makeup and washing my face. I had previously been using larger wash cloths. While wash cloths are great for keeping in your bathroom, they are usually too big for just needing something quick to take eye makeup off with or quickly washing my face. They also take up space while traveling so I wanted something smaller, like these round cloths. Having 20 is great because I'm not constantly searching for clean ones. I packed them while traveling and the net bag they come in is also great for traveling. I use these with either my face wash or micellar water for makeup remover and both work fine. I was actually impressed that after I wiped off mascara, quite a bit comes off the pad just rinsing the pad (see photo). I have not put these through the wash yet." —Anna

    Get a set of 20 from Amazon for $12.99.

    4. A Chewbacca seatbelt cover, guaranteed to keep you comfortable during your family road trip to Walt Disney World to check out Star Wars Galaxy's Edge., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love the comfort of this seatbelt cover as I have a pacemaker and this item provided comfort. I recommend this product for the cushion it provides AND it looks so clever on the seatbelt. The cover moves easily over the seatbelt as it is unhooked. Great idea for me and driving is no longer a struggle keeping the seatbelt pressure off my pacer.... an issue I've had since I was very young. For those without a pacemaker, this item is so cute on the seatbelt, a real conversation piece. Try it for yourself and you'll understand how much I like it." —tim sager

    Get it from Amazon for $17.93.

    5. Winky Lux flower balm you'll find simply magical when it goes on clear, then blossoms into the perfect shade of pink as it combines with your natural pH level. In addition to its lovely color, it'll keep you lips feeling fresh and hydrated. Keep it in your carry on and grab when you land for a quick pout pick-me-up.

    Winky Lux

    My sister and I have this fun lil' lip balm, and we love it! The flower inside is as pretty as the shade of pink it creates. I like minimal makeup, so this product has been a slam dunk for me. My lips are *always* chapped (also I tend to chew on them, so that's on me) and this has been a solid solution to keeping them hydrated and looking cute.

    Promising review: "This is the best for moisturizing your lips and it gives you a little hint of color. It has the prettiest flower 🌹 inside the lipstick itself. I really appreciate the look. It’s not overwhelming in terms of tint and it really doesn’t have an overpowering scent. I will definitely buy again." —MC Joseph

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in three flower colors).

    6. Memory foam slippers with a non-slip bottom and plush lining to make you feel like you're lounging at a fancy spa instead of a cramped plane.,

    Promising review: "Beautiful comfy slippers! I ordered my normal shoe size, and they fit perfect. For anyone with foot problems, look no further! I have had multiple foot surgeries, my feet swell frequently, and I can't just wear any old shoe or slipper. I'm super picky about what goes on my feet, and I can tell you these slippers are an awesome fit! Snug and firm, but still soft and comfy, and warm! (I live in Wisconsin, and these slippers keep my feet toasty!)" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $18.90+ (available in women's sizes M–XL and four styles).

    7. Tinted eyebrow filler, so you can fix 'em when they go haywire after your 3-hour travel nap.,

    Promising review: "Love this! My eyebrows stay in place with a great color. It is especially good for travel. I'll for sure buy more in the future. It even fits in my pocket!" —Andrea Radar

    Get it from Amazon for $15 (available in five colors).

    8. A pair of comfortable jeggings that'll make you look ready to take on the world even after you've been traveling for days.

    American Eagle

    American Eagle jeggings are an absolute wardrobe staple for me — especially when I'm traveling. They're extremely stretchy and comfortable. I know I can count on them to make me feel like I'm lounging in leggings while looking like I'm struttin' my stuff in denim — win-win!

    Promising review: "They are stretchy enough to be comfortable when you sit and your stomach poofs out but not so stretchy that they stretch too much. Of course the first time you wear them they feel slightly tight but will eventually feel perfect. I love these jeans and plan to buy a second pair." —Rota

    Get them from American Eagle for $39.95+ (available in women's sizes 000–24, five lengths, and five colors). 

    9. A compact hair dryer you can use to avoid fumbling with the not-so-great standard one found in most hotel rooms.

    the conair hair dryer

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful hair dryer that is lightweight and compact, which makes it ideal for traveling. Nobody wants to bring their big bulky hair dryer with them when they travel because it takes up half of their suitcase. With this compact hair dryer, you definitely have plenty of room for clothes, shoes, makeup, accessories, and anything else. This Conair Hair Dryer puts out a lot of 'wind,' whether you want it hot or cold, there is no difference in power." —Jordan Hier

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    10. A twistable memory foam pillow to support your neck while you attempt to sleep through the baby who'll probs be screaming and kicking your seat.

    a model using the twisted neck pillow in a car

    Promising review: "Most travel neck pillows make me feel completely overwhelmed, and this is especially great for those with shorter necks. It gives you control and once you get the positioning that you prefer, it is really comfortable and provides the right support in the right places. Also, (and this was a selling point in the beginning,) having used this on several long-haul flights, I loved that after each trip, I could easily unzip the cover and throw it in the wash." —ltny

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    11. Color-coordinated packing cubes, so when you pop open your bag after a long flight to change into a fresh pair of undies you won't have to dig around and disrupt your neat packing job., Amazon

    Promising review: "These little things are the bomb! I would highly recommend using packing cubes. I always thought they might be just an extra thing to deal with, but let me tell you they helped me so much on my recent trip to Scotland. We were gone for 14 days and had a limited amount of luggage that we could take. In addition we were staying at different places and traveling throughout the country. Separating your items into these little cubes really made me feel like I got more packed into my bag. Who knew something so simple could make such a difference!" —Tammy L. Kilgore

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 10 colors).

    12. And, of course, new no-show underwear to change into for a ~refresher~ after sitting in the same pair all day.

    the underwear in different colors

    Promising review: "I love these things. They are are extremely comfy and are a great material. They don't show any lines through leggings or workout wear, are super sexy, and great quality. The sizing is fairly true." —Frank Elavsky

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $15.99 (available in sizes S–L and two styles).

    13. An electronic-cleaning cloth that'll help you swipe away any germs your devices may have picked up on your travels.

    a green e-cleaning cloth

    Promising review: "This is a great E-cloth for cleaning personal electronics. I use it frequently, and it's the best cloth for cleaning computers, cellphones, eye glasses that I have ever had. I also gave some to a friend who is a high tech person. He loves it, and it takes a lot to impress him. Great buy." —C. Mcclanahan

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    14. Pants button extenders, because there's nothing worse than being stuck in a car or on a plane for hours while your pants dig into your stomach., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these extenders. They are made of sturdy plastic and work great. They give you just the right amount of extension. Some extenders are too long and make it hard to zip your pants to the top. I have not had that problem with these. If you're looking for a quick-fix, and want something you can easily put on and take off, these are the ones. They fit most buttons, some buttons take a little bit of maneuvering, but overall work really well. I recommend these over the twisted metal wire extenders, which don't last at all, stretch and don't retract. These by far are the best option." —Wylendia R Eastman

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $7.95 (available in two colors).

    15. A Bug Bite Thing Suction Tool your traveling companions will really appreciate you tossing into your duffel bag before a big outdoor camping trip — bugs, galore!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I cannot stress to you enough how much better this simple little tool has made my quality of life during summer in Ohio. It rains a lot. There are a lot of mosquitoes. Omg so many mosquitoes. I have horrific allergic reactions to mosquito bites. We're talking bumps swelling to the width of softballs within minutes of the bite. This tool doesn't make those bumps go away, but it stops the itch IMMEDIATELY.

    I was a huge skeptic; how could a little suction cure this agonizingly itchy allergic reaction? I'll be honest. I still really don't know how it does, but it provides instant relief that no pill, cream, or injection ever has ever achieved for me. If you live anywhere where insect bites are common, you need to own one of these!" —Customer

    Get two from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two colors).

    16. Wet N' Wild Mega Last Breakup-Proof Liquid Eyeliner, AKA your soon-to-be go-to eyeliner. It will last up to 16 hours (I KNOW!) so you can be sure it'll still be going strong even after you've taken a looooong road trip nap.

    Promising review: "I love this! The tip has a pretty fine point to it, allowing for thick or thin line control and it is SO smudge-proof! I work with animals and end up getting water sprayed in my face often and it doesn’t move! If I take a nap with it on? Still solid when I wake up. Rub my eyes way more than I should? No raccoon eyes! But when I want it gone it comes right off when washing my face or using a remover wipe! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good, budge-proof eyeliner that won’t take 50 years and a bottle of oil to get off." –Logan

    Get it from Amazon for $4.98.

    17. Ouai wave spray you can spritz right onto your wet hair for chic, beachy waves on a whim.

    Ouai Haircare / Via

    I would put my life on the line for Jen Atkin's magic Ouai wave spray. I have naturally wavy/curly hair and most mornings I run my sleepy head under my shower faucet, use some bobby pins to pin some pieces of hair back, then spray this all over before I head out the door. It's a miracle product.

    Get it from Sephora for $12.

    18. A hypoallergenic, paraben-free, gluten-free sunscreen you'll love because it won't leave your skin greasy and you can easily apply it in the airplane bathroom before you touch down in a tropical paradise.

    Promising review: "I love the smell of this lotion! Also it's a little bit thicker than most, which I prefer as it actually feels like I'm coated and protected with a nice layer of sunscreen versus the sunscreens out there that have the consistency of water almost. Also love that this brand is vegan and cruelty-free, and doesn't contain a ton of harmful ingredients. And as a Floridian I'm supporting a homegrown company when I use Sun Bum! A++" —KJN

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in three sizes and four SPF options).

    19. An on-the-go compact with blush, bronzer, and a highlighter, so you can perform a quick touch-up before heading off on your next adventure.


    Don't even get my started on this rose quartz–styled packaging (can you see my heart eyes from here?). This set is also vegan and free of talc, parabens, pthalate and mineral oil.

    Promising review: "Perfect Face is my new favorite combo that feels natural and glowy but is totally buildable, and in the prettiest palette that gives off serious luxury vibes — love it!" —Megan E.

    Get it from Hipdot for $12.

    20. A mini diffuser, perfect for making your Airbnb, hotel room, or car smell fresh 'n' clean.

    a small glowing blue diffuser in the cup holder of a reviewer's car

    Promising review: "We bought this because we have a newborn baby who had lots of congestion issues. We have a normal size in our home but every other weekend we travel to my parents' house and stay there and notice when we didn’t have the humidifier she would get so stuffy. So we bought this and it’s perfect. It’s so tiny but powerful and last for 3+ hours plus we love the changing color lights! Definitely recommend. One thing is that It has a max line and that’s where you’re supposed to put the water but I notice when I do it to max line it doesn’t work properly so I do it right below the max line." —B.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.39+ (available in two styles).

    21. And essential oils you can use with your fancy new diffuser, of course.

    six bottles of different scented oils

    This set comes with peppermint, rosemary, eucalyptus, tea tree, Frankincense, and lavender oils. I've actually purchased this myself as a starter set with my diffuser and it certainly does the job.

    Promising review: "We use these often in our daughter's diffuser and we LOVE them. We love using lavender to help her relax and sleep and the combination of lavender and frankincense to help her breathe better when she catches a small cold. These are such an affordable yet high-quality option for essential oil fans" —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $12.99.

    22. A cotton T-shirt you'll be happy you packed after spilling your green juice all over yourself in the first hour of your road trip.,

    Promising review: "I love this shirt so much! It’s soft and fits true to size! I ordered a medium and it fits just the way I would want, not too tight and not very loose either! I love this color combo but I will probably get others too because it is very comfortable and an easy casual look to put together." —Jennifer Alviso

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and nine styles).

    23. A trio of moisturizing lip balm tins to keep in each of your travel bags, because you know you're likely to lose one as you jet around from place to place.

    a trio of lip balm tins

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this pack! This stuff lasts a very very long time. Love that it's a natural salve. It really does heal cracked and chapped skin, not just lips but knees, feet, and elbows. I even found it useful for spots on my face that were peeling. Comes in a very cute tin with lid that I found to be useful also for my travel case. Love this product. Makes your lips SO soft." —Honest co.

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $14.99.

    24. Vegan dry shampoo that'll keep your locks looking fresh as a daisy when in reality you haven't showered in three days.


    Promising review: "I use dry shampoo on third-day hair on days that I plan on washing it (so maybe once or twice twice per week) in order to absorb excess oil. I bought this Drop Dead Gorgeous as an alternative to aerosol dry shampoo in the hopes that it would be easier to travel with, better for the environment, and (hopefully) smell less terrible. This is a small bottle, perfect for traveling, and a little bit goes a long way. I feel like it will last me a year or more with twice weekly use." —Olivia

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    25. And a travel-sized hair brush, for when all your hair needs is a quick comb-through after a flight.


    Promising review: "I picked up my first Tangle Teezer from Sally's and bought another on Amazon for my travel bag. I love it so much, I had to get a dedicated one for traveling for fear of losing my original (or forgetting to bring it)! I have shoulder length hair, and I took for granted how much easier this makes combing post shower wet hair than a traditional toothed comb until I had to use one recently. This really glides through the hair. I wish my mom had one to use on me when I was growing up, I probably wouldn't have 'dreaded' getting my hair combed out!" —M. Starr

    Get it from Amazon for $11.41.

    26. Overnight facial oil, a must-have if you're planning to take a red-eye flight or drive through the night.

    Moonlit Skincare

    I have this facial oil and it has honestly been a game changer. It's not super oily, feels really lightweight, and smells fantastic. It's infused with lavender so not only does it help soothe you to sleep, it also calms your mind (which is GREAT if traveling makes you anxious).

    Get it from Moonlit Skincare for $34.

    27. A trash can for your car that'll easily hook onto the gearshift. Fill it during your cross-country drive, bring it into the hotel (or any nearby trash can) to empty it, repeat!

    BuzzFeed writer Stephanie Hope has this and is a fan. She said: "I absolutely love this trash can. Every time I step in the car, it makes me smile. I get tons of compliments and it keeps the car clean! I empty it out every time I stop for gas. Easy peasy!"

    Promising review: "So wonderfully cute and small enough to not be in a passenger's way. I commute and am the worst about rubbish collecting in my center console with all the snacks I bring with me everywhere. So happy to have a place for my mess to keep my car clutter free!" —Darienne Coffen

    Get the one pictured above from Designs By JIHill on Etsy for $20+ (available in three styles).

    28. A Drunk Elephant glycolic serum and moisturizer duo that'll help your skin recover from all the stress it's felt while traveling.

    the two products from drunk elephant in mini size next to the yellow and pink tube they are packaged in

    I have an array of products from Drunk Elephant, including this set, and can't help but praise them. They sink into my skin nicely and don't leave my face feeling greasy after application. I don't worry about the products coming off on my pillows or sheets either! In the morning my face feels hydrated and that's already one less thing I don't have to worry about for the day.

    Promising review: "I really love Drunk Elephant products not only because they actually work but because they are also clean which makes me feel better about the price points. I had never tried the glycolic serum so I figured I would purchase the trial size because I already know I love this moisturizer that it comes with. I’m so happy I tried it! I love the serum as much as I love all their other products! I just use one pump on the back of my hand, mix it with the moisturizer and apply at night before bed. I don’t get any tingly feeling when I do use it this way. My skin feels so soft and looks so smooth the next day!" —AliciaDoll

    Get it from Sephora or Amazon for $28.

    29. Fancy socks you can keep in your bag and change into so you're not stuck walking around in socks you wore through airport security., Amazon

    Promising review: "Very cute! I live and work in Florida in a professional setting. It is too hot to wear stockings, but I have to wear closed-toed shoes. These socks are a great options and help me feel funky and stylish! I love them!" —I <3 Books

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $12.99 (available in nine styles).

    30. A curling iron/straightener to save TONS of room in your suitcase and assist you in keep your hair on fleek all vacation.

    Promising review: "I really like this curler and flat iron. Heats up fast, cools fast, and the travel bag is perfect with the inside protected from the heat. Size is great and the end of the iron has a place for fingers not to burn. Very much worth the price to have flat iron and curling in one." —Amazon Customer

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    My fellow editor Emma Lord is a BIG fan of this mascara. She said:

    "Hello, that is my face above, because I bought into the hype of over 35,000 positive reviews and now I will never look back!! Putting it on is like giving my eyelashes butterfly wings. It doesn't get clumpy, it stays put ALL the live long day (I spent all of this ridiculously hot pandemic summer wearing it, so I can speak to that), and you can apply it on very lightly if you don't want it to look so dramatic, or continue applying for longer lashes each time."

    Promising review: "I have to be honest, for a 'cheap' three-pack mascara, I did NOT have high expectations. These, however, exceeded my expectations and went MUCH MUCH farther. I had been buying a certain $25/tube brand (rhymes with truepique) and I like these just as much!! I’m saving a TON of money and like my lashes just as much." —Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    34. A seat cushion to prevent back pain if you're stuck sitting in the same spot for what feels like FOREVER.,

    Promising review: "This cushion is wonderful! I ordered two of these, one for me and one for my husband, before taking a long trip in our motorhome. I've been using mine almost daily for a month now and it truly takes away my low back pain while sitting on it. My main purpose was to use it while traveling, now I take it any place that I'll be sitting on hard surfaces or for extended periods. Some said it didn't fit them properly or raised them up too high, I have no complaints, only praise! My husband likes his as well. Says it gives him more support and comfort while driving." —Pat F

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    35. A portable vacuum that'll conveniently plug right into your car — no extension cord needed here! You can also use it to tidy-up after a stay in a hotel room (no one needs to know you chose to eat chips in bed).

    Stephanie Hope / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed writer Stephanie Hope also has this cool product:

    "When I tell you that I use this product often, I mean it. It's so easy to plug in, vacuum dirt from the floor or seat, and put it away. It comes with three different attachments and an extra filter! My tip is to use the brush attachment for everything as it will kick dirt off the carpet fibers, making it easier to suction."

    Promising review: "Yes, it is not a powerful as my vacuum cleaner in the house, however, it cleaned out all the garbage, which I accumulated over the past autumn and winter in the car. At the end of October my husband and I went to the ocean and as we tried to be neat — the sand was still in the car. Finally, I got rid of it! Now my beauty again is clean, as on the first day, when I bought her!" —Julia Bright

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    36. Glossier's Cloud Paint, so you can add a lil' color to your cheeks without fumbling with a makeup brush when you're on the go.


    Promising review: "I found out about this product from a friend. I always carry two makeup products in my purse... face powder for touch-ups and blush so that I never look washed out with my fair complexion. Cloud Paint has made this so much easier! I use Puff every day for a soft flush and Beam when I want something a little different. The application is easy and quick, especially on-the-go." —fleeterskeets

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in eight colors).

    37. A travel-sized bottle of Poo-Pourri, in case you're on a plane and really have to go but don't want to ~blow up~ the toilet for the other passengers.

    a bottle of poo-pourri spray

    Promising review: "My mom does lot of international traveling and tries a lot of different foods. Poo-Pourri has made her traveling easier because there is not embarrassment for the next person who uses the toilet after her. The packaging is small and compact, but not so small you lose it. It also has pretty, appealing labels. The smell is unique, but not a good or bad smell. I wouldn't want to wear it for perfume, but it is a nice 'bathroom-type' smell." —TX Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in 10 sizes and 23 scents).

    38. A Quip toothbrush, so sleek and easy to pack you can keep it in your carry-on to freshen your breath at any time during your travels.

    Every quip brush comes with a travel cover that also doubles as a mirror mount and a stand. I have one of these and my mouth has never felt cleaner.

You're welcome.

    Get a quip starter set for $25+ (available in six styles).

    39. A travel blanket unlike any you've probably seen before — it's weighted naturally with a layering technique instead of with artificial filling. It'll help soothe your nerves if traveling simply isn't your favorite thing to do (ahem, me).

    a navy blue knit weighted blanket on a lounge chair

    I have one of these in the full size and it's my favorite thing to unwind with at the end of the day. I have an anxiety disorder and can often find myself feeling really worked up and typically have physical symptoms like feeling restless. The weight of this blanket helps me to soothe my body and loosen up a bit. This one comes in only the 10-pound option and its own carrying bag so you can easily take it on-the-go.

    Get it from Bearaby for $209 (available in five colors).

    40. A steering wheel tray so when you take a much-deserved break from driving to eat dinner at a rest stop you'll be able to do so ergonomically!,

    Promising review: "Since I am in university right now as a commuter, sometimes I spend a bit of time in my car as it is comfortable compared to uncomfortable desks/chairs at my campus. This table makes it easy to work inside the car for eating or working as it has two sides. One side works as a lunch tray with a spot for a drink and the other side is mainly flat for books or a computer." —Kevin H.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    41. And a jet set hydration kit complete with cleanser, moisturizer, night cream, eye cream, and a hydrating balm — a must for anyone who will be freaking out over whether their products are TSA-approved.
