As carry-on travel becomes the norm, we’re constantly trying to find innovative ways to travel liquid-free. Fortunately, it seems that everyday there is a new travel-friendly product to choose from and today we’re highlighting liquid-free travel. From insect repellant to sunblock, you can find so many products in wipe form. Check out these six handy travel wipes!
6 Non-Liquid Travel Wipes
These travel wipes are particularly useful if you don’t plan to spend too much time in areas known for mosquitos or if you are unsure whether or not you’ll encounter them. For extended trips in tropical areas I’d stick to the sprays or roll-ons to ensure you have full coverage.
I love sunblock travel wipes because they’re easy to stick in your purse and apply as needed. Similar to insect repellant you may not want pack these when you know you’ll experience prolonged periods of time in the sun but they’re great for short trips. Sunblock is now also available as a solid for trips requiring more coverage!
Face Wash/Makeup Remover
These are probably already in you luggage but let’s not forget, face wipes are an essential way to avoid packing liquid makeup remover plus face wash. Try to find face wipes that offer a combination.
I’m a little bit in love with these olive oil face wipes by Korean brand Innisfree. So soft and gently it makes removing my makeup something I look forward to in the evenings!
Remember the perfume samples they include in magazine tear out advertisements? Now you can buy them in wipe version making them perfectly travel friendly!
Take exactly what you need and not an ounce more than you don’t. If you rarely wear perfume like me, these fragrance wipes are the perfect solution for the occasional indulgence that takes up absolutely no space at all.
Nail Polish Remover
These handy nail polish remover wipes have been around for decades but it wasn’t until I came across them at a store in England that I realized exactly what I was missing out on.
Not only do they not have the strong scent of alcohol but they can be oily leaving your fingers smooth not dry. As a bonus you don’t need to pack cotton balls or the liquid remover. Just wipe and go! LOVE these!
Antibacterial wipes are a total must in my book because you don’t want to just disinfect your hands; you want to wipe the dirt off them, too. Essential for each and every trip I always have several packets when I leave for a new destination.
They’re not readily available in all parts of the world so I travel with them until I run out and then I replace them with the gel. Never leave home without them!
Alternatively, use a natural solution or carry a hotel size soap in your bag to wash your hands whenever you can.
