Because tiny products are your most attainable luxury of the holiday season…
Why is on-the-go packaging so strangely alluring? Even seasoned editors who could have every limited-edition XXL luxury product on the market secretly rejoice when gifted a collection of TSA-friendly miniatures. It’s as if a feeling of “well, this I can use…” washes over even the choosiest beauty hoarders of the bunch.
There’s a sweetness to the adorable snuggle-right-into-your-palm sizing — and perhaps that’s the point: the smaller the product, the more likely it’ll be popped into a carry-on, tucked into a gym bag, or stashed in a coat pocket within easy reach. And of course teeny products are key when avoiding yet another airport bag check line at 5am — providing a logical excuse to indulge.
Below, the diminutive stars of the show:
Giving real meaning to a cool logo, Rahua supports the rainforest and its indigenous cultures by purchasing ingredients directly from tribespeople who use ancient methods to cultivate its healing hair oils.
The coconut rose toner alone would be enough to make this collection worthwhile — keeping a portable face mist within reach at all times is Rule 1 for savvy travelers.
Aside from its novelty alone, a solid cleanser (like this one that starts as a mango seed butter-infused balm that turns milky with water) means there’s no chance of opening a bag and finding an oil spill.
This Instant Calm range is a dream for hyper-sensitive skin thanks to certified organic ingredients that soothe inflammation — and discreetly. No hint of overtly medical, over-the-counter drugstore packaging here.
The cold-pressed superfoods packed into these teensy glass containers mean anti-oxidant-rich skincare worthy of a green juice, but perfect for environmentally stressed-out (like, straight off a flight) complexions.
