5 Products You Won't Want to Travel Without

Summer is winding down fast, which means that there's only a few weeks left to get away before fall schedules pick up again. If you're flying to your destination, that most likely means checking your suitcase-and paying for it. Avoid overpacking with these travel-savvy beauty tips to keep your liquid load 3 fluid ounces and under.

Pack Products That Multitask
"Prep your cosmetics bag with easy-to-apply, multitasking makeup," says Jillian Dempsey, Avon Global Creative Color Director and Hollywood Makeup Artist. "My Professional Multi Pencil ($8), has a creamy lip/cheek color and a highlighting eyeshadow all in a dual-ended pencil. The fact that you can get a complete look with one product makes this the perfect traveling companion."

"I pack an inexpensive shampoo like VO5 that lathers well enough to double as a shaving cream," says Real Beauty associate editor Colleen Moody. "And if I leave my favorite fragrance behind, I dab my deodorant on my wrists to get the same effect. Dove has some great light scents like Wild Rose, so it won't make you smell like you took a bath in baby powder."

2. Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes

"I'm a huge fan of towelettes when on the go," says Alex Mintz, co-founder of the travel-friendly beauty product site 3floz.com. "I use these on the beach, after a workout, and before I reapply makeup since they clean and hydrate at the same time - without leaving behind sticky residue."
