    Because who has time to actually check a bag these days?

    1. The Kindle Paperwhite e-reader that weighs a hundred times less (trust me, I did the math) than cramming multiple books into your bag.

    2. This multipurpose lotion that's specially formulated to prevent chafing, shrivelling, dryness, and sagging (yes, I'm talking about testicles). Apply it on your back and chest, too, to stay fresh and comfortable from boarding to bar-hopping. The travel-sized tube won't cause any problems at bag check, either!

    3. These compression socks with over 16,000 reviews will help keep your legs and feet from swelling at 30,000 feet.

    4. A mini bottle of dry shampoo that's just the ticket for keeping your mane looking and smelling fresh after many long hours of travel.

    5. These silicone pore cleansing pads are an easy and hypoallergenic way to give your skin a good scrubbin'. They make a great lightweight replacement for high-tech cleansing brushes, without having to sacrifice efficacy.

    6. This beautiful three-piece set of stainless steel flatware that'll help you cut back on single use plastics while you're on the go.

    7. This USB-rechargeable and self-cleaning water bottle that'll keep you hydrated from take-off to landing.

    8. These eco-friendly green tea and aloe face wipes make short work of makeup removal and are super gentle on skin. They're individually packaged, and take up way less space than a whole bottle of cleanser. Plus, they're made of biodegradable bamboo!

    9. This windproof travel umbrella that'll withstand whatever Mother Nature flings your way. With its Teflon coating and nine-rib construction, it's strong AND lightweight.

    10. These Boscia blotting papers that'll help keep your skin looking glowing and healthy, regardless of how long your flight was. The slim package tucks into any pocket, and it's infused with green tea to soothe, freshen, and protect your skin (even if you're tired, angry, and sore).
