Last updated 27th August 2018

Say goodbye to spills. The newest crop of beauty products come in stick form, making them solid travel companions — and totally TSA-friendly.

1. Shine On

Loaded with good-for-skin natural oils like apricot, avocado, calendula and jojoba, Milk Makeup’s Hydrating Oil adds a boost of moisture to face and body skin instantly. Bonus — it adds shine to brows and hair, too.

$24, Milk Makeup

2. Clean Sweep

Perfect for teens and moms, the Apricot & Manuka Honey Cleansing Stick from St. Ives removes makeup, dirt, oil and everyday impurities so skin is clear and radiant. It’s also infused with 100-percent-natural coconut oil to give a boost of hydration. Just wet face, rub and massage the stick over your skin, then rinse.

$7.99, St. Ives

3. In the Shade

SPF swipes on easily with Coola’s Mineral Sport SPF 50 Organic Sunscreen Stick. Non-nano zinc oxide means zero white residue. Use anywhere on face and body, and tote with you for reapplying.

$26, Coola

4. Body Smoother

Finally, a body butter that fits in your carry-on — and works for the whole family. H20+ Beauty Teak Rose on the Move Body Butter Stick glides on easily and contains a trio of nourishing ingredients.

$15, H20+

5. Eye Soother

Reenergize tired, travel-worn eyes with Physicians Formula Refreshmint Cucumber & Bamboo Eye De-Puffer. The formula’s hydrating and nourishing ingredients give the skin around your eyes a quick pick-me-up.

6. Perky Scrubber

Everyone in the family will be clamoring for this cup o’ joe. Yes To’s Energizing Coffee 2-In-1 Scrub  & Cleanser Stick contains coconut extract to moisturize, while the coffee goes to work to reduce inflammation. Apply over wet skin, massage in to create a lather, then rinse.

7. Glow Getter

On one end of Wander Beauty’s On-the-Glow Blush & Illuminator is blush; the other features a face and body Illuminator. The blush adds the perfect amount of color for lips and lids. The Illuminator can be used wherever you need a hint of luminosity.
