Tiny travel essentials

sm_ST Ives tinyEveryone has their little extravagances. One of mine is buying travel-sized beauty products. I hate refilling tiny bottles. It is time consuming and messy. And worse of all, they often leak and are hard to clean. I even buy tiny foil sample packs in bulk for plane trips so can take my favourite moisturizers on the plane easily with no fear of spills. So when I find my favourite beauty products in security-friendly sizes I am thrilled. Plus, these little bottles make great stocking stuffers! 

Nexxus Therappe Ultimate Moisture Shampoo Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisture Conditioner is now available in three-ounce sizes, priced at $2.99 and $3.99 each. These are perfect to pamper hair after Sahara-like plane flights. 

St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub is now available in a travel-friendly one-ounce size. This is perfect for de-griming your face after a day for city touring or pampering tired toes after a trek. cwill keep skin soft in a handy three-ounce size. Both are only 99 cents.  At these budget-friendly prices you can buy a handful and play secret Santa or stuff stockings.
