One way to get around it are non-liquid cleansers. Yes, these are totally a thing! And so useful when it comes to packing. Check out these options we’ve got here, from some old favourites to some new innovations to see what works best for you on your next trip.
FANCL Washing Powder
This cult-favourite is a powder, so it won’t add to your liquid stash on the plane, but simply add a little water to it and it transforms into a powerful-yet-gentle foam that’s great for taking off all your makeup without stripping the skin of nutrients.
Orbis Powder Wash +
Just add water and this powder turns into a firm cleanser that will cleanse your skin of makeup and grime. The foam is great as it prevents your skin from getting irritated while the moisturizing ingredients keep your skin from drying out after.
Clinique Freshed Pressed Renewing Powder Cleanser with Pure Vitamin C
This gentle cleanser is designed to purify and brighten the skin with a good dose of Vitamin C. Mix it with water and it will gently cleanse the skin without drying it out. The individual sachets means that the fresh Vitamin C stays active until you open it.
Su:m Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick
This cult classic is another carry-on beauty product that won’t eat into your limited liquids. Dampen your face and swirl the stick around to create a gentle but effective foam. Then cap it and save it for your next use.
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads
This daily treatment pad is easy to carry around and contains just the right amount of Lactic and Glycolic acid to safely exfoliate, tone and brighten your skin. It’s also gentle enough for those with sensitive skin to use.
Kanebo Suisai Beauty Powder
These nifty, one-time use powder pockets contain two enzymes that both gently cleanse and moisturise the skin. A favourite among beauty influencers, these are some easy products to pack on your trips, and you only need to bring as many as you need!
Simple Micellar Wipes
Great for giving your skin an instantly refreshed feeling, these wipes are great to take on the plane in place of a cleanser if you don’t want to get everything wet in the bathroom and just need a little boost. The gentle formula makes them good for sensitive skin as well.
This travel-friendly cleansing stick is an exfoliator, cleanser and face mask all-in-one. Once you transform it into a powerful foam, it will help reduce oil production while purifying pores and giving your skin the deep cleanse it needs. The gel formula keeps it gentle so that you can use it every day if need be.
