Ah, summer. With the heat and humidity brings the best thing of all: vacation, vacation, vacation. And unfortunately by extension—the chore of packing. And while my personal beauty arsenal is (admittedly) overkill on trips, even those with the most laissez-faire routines will admit that carting around a dopp kit is tiring and worse: risky. If TSA doesn’t confiscate my shampoo and conditioner, then who’s to say it won’t explode in my bag? I’ve tried everything from overstuffing zip-lock bags to transferring lotions into reusable miniature bottles like a mad scientist. Let me tell you: it usually ends poorly. And whether or not you’re a failed at-home chemist like me, you’ve probably wasted money on full-size products once you’ve arrived at your destination, or been forced to abandon your over-the-limit bathroom stapes while going through security.

Here to solve all of our packing woes is Caileur, a website offering exclusive travel-sized products for all your getaway needs. That chic toothpaste you got that one time in France? They have it. Your favorite natural deodorant? They have that too. Miniature candles, refreshing facial mists, spray-on sunscreen? Check, check, and check—all in under 3.4 fluid ounces.

The idea behind the one-stop travel-sized shop was created after its founders struggled while packing for their own trips. “I’m really particular about the products I use and never had time to run to five different stores. I wanted to create a site that gave people access to their favorite brands in travel size,” explains Caileur co-founder, Mary Ann Taylor. They also offer unisex products, so neither you nor your travel companion needs to settle for the hotel’s (typically dismal) offerings.

The best part? You can mix-and-match from their various luxury brands to create your own customized travel kit or simply pick from one of their seasonally curated sets. All products arrive in a clear TSA-approved bag, so you can rest assured it will get there safely and hassle-free. Your next vacation bathroom shelfie never looked so good.
