Let’s face it: even though it’s really fun to score mini-bottles of shampoo and body wash from whatever hotel you might be staying at while on vacation, there’s nothing worse than traveling to somewhere far, far away only to find out that there’s no conditioner or toothpaste available at your destination. Here are our favorite things to take along on any trip you take this summer, from a tube of our favorite toothpaste to a face mask guaranteed to keep your skin hydrated after a long flight to the perfect lightweight pomade for reducing humidity-induced frizz.
