You know what’s a pain to travel with? Liquid face wash.

Face wash in a solid stick. No mess—just swipe on, massage, and wash off.

Shade and Illuminate Glow StickTom Ford, $55
This glam stick is here to simplify your bag. It doubles as both your decadent bronzer and blush (and heck, you could even use the bronzer as eyeshadow and the blush as lipstick). You now can call yourself a light packer, thankyouverymuch!
