If factoring in how to pack your skincare routine is a part of your traveling process, then it's time to check out the new 2019 travel-sized beauty products. While it's become normal for brands to release full-size and mini versions of products around the same time, this summer has shown off the beauty industry's retrospective side — namely, tons of cult favorites are now available in carry on-friendly sizes. (Or, for those that don't pack lightly, sizes that won't add too much extra bulk when squeezed between your vacation outfits.)

Your first order of business? Figuring out what to do with your hair while you're out and about. Luckily, Kristin Ess is one step ahead of you — the fan-favorite brand just launched the mini Style Reviving Dry Shampoo and Dry Finish Working Texture Spray. Even better, both purse-sized products retail for just $4.99 a pop. "They were the most requested travel sizes from our customers. We did a poll on IG asking what styling products people wanted to see next in travel sizes and these two were clear winners," explains Kristin Ess herself to The Zoe Report over email, the celebrity hairstylist, colorist, and founder behind the brand.

"The Style Reviving Dry Shampoo Travel and Dry Finish Working Texture Spray Travel are the perfect items for your purse! Anyone going from work to dinner or traveling light can use dry shampoo or texture spray to get quick results," Ess continues. "We are definitely looking into launching more minis soon, especially focusing on the products that you can’t just throw into a travel-size container."

Olive & June

Meanwhile, Olive & June's new $26 K.I.T. Kit — which bundles together the brand's glossy Top Coat, Cuticle Serum pen, and a nail file — safeguards your vacation mani while you're out of office. "The K.I.T Kit was created for every girl with a polish mani. We want to help you protect your polish as long as we possibly can!" Sarah Gibson Tuttle, CEO and founder of Olive & June, tells The Zoe Report via email. "Applying a thin layer of top coat every 3 days is a game changer — it protects the polish, but also keeps your mani looking shiny. Our Cuticle Hydration Serum is wonderful for cuticle hydration, but also keeps the dry skin around your nails nourished so your mani looks just done 5 minutes ago. Also, the file is there in case of a break — no one wants that rough edge just hanging out there. Everyone needs the K.I.T Kit in their purse or overnight bag!"
