15 travel products to love this summer

Covid restrictions have been relaxed (for better or worse), and summer is in full swing. People are traveling again, at a level we haven’t seen since before the pandemic. We can’t do anything about fuel prices or long lines at the airport, but these products will make travel easier and more convenient, giving you time to focus on your destination.


$18

This ARZE rolling ball is small enough to fit in a bag and can easily be added to your bag. The blend of spearmint, spearmint, tea tree, lemon and lime smells great and cools you down quickly. Simply wrap a little on the back of your neck, temples, and wrists to experience a sensation of perfect cooling while you’re exploring on a hot day.

$29.99

website

Clothes deodorant keeps a nice scent no matter how much you sweat. It’s a lifesaver if you are tired of overloading and want to wear the pieces multiple times. It’s odorless, so it won’t compete with cologne or perfume, it’s easy to use, and it takes up little space in your bag. It’s organic, hypoallergenic, sustainable, and lasts through multiple washes.

10 bucks

website

Compression socks are essential on long trips and prevent your feet from getting swollen. Most of them are really tight and unattractive, but Dr. Motion makes relaxed versions in fun styles for men or women.


larkly-sunscreen2.jpg

$32

website

Larkly Sunscreen comes in an easy-to-use powder formula with a built in brush to protect skin without a lot of mess, greasy residue, or chalk. This is all natural and contains the antioxidants resveratrol, licorice root and green tea as well as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. I love that they don’t take up space in my fluid bag and that they sell eco-friendly packages that allow you to use the same brush and reduce single-use plastics.


colatree_suray.jpg

$59

website

Coalatree has become one of my favorite travel brands, creating innovative clothing that solves many common travel problems. The Suray Sun Shirt is a great addition to the line. It’s made with a fabric that has zinc ions directly embedded in it to provide sun protection for the life of the product. It’s lightweight, tucks into its own pocket to take up very little space in your bag, is odor-resistant, and offers SPF 50+ protection. It’s also really stretchy and comfortable.


ayla_fannypack.jpg

$74

website

I am so happy that flexible packaging is trendy again. They’re great when visiting amusement parks or anywhere you don’t want to carry a handbag. The Ayla case is stylish, includes a removable credit card wallet, and a handy pass pocket designed to hold a power pack to keep your phone charged while taking a million photos or navigating Google Maps.


Bearback_lotion.jpg

USD 24.97

website

The Bearback is one of those genius products that solves a common problem—it makes it easy to apply lotion or sunscreen to hard-to-reach areas. It collapses to 9.5″ but extends to 17″. You can add the lotion to the foam roller and roll it on like paint. They also sell back scratchers, dry brushes, and massage accessories.


electrofan.jpg

$34.95

website

I love products with multiple functions, so this compact white noise machine and bluetooth speaker are perfect for blasting the Lizzo off while getting dressed in the morning or providing soothing sounds while you sleep. It has five different fan sounds, four different white/pink/brown noises, and two ocean surfing sounds. It’s compact, measuring about 2 inches in all directions and weighing about 3 ounces, so it can be easily packed. Don’t let the small size fool you – the sound is impressive.


nomatic_cubes.jpg

$39.99

website

I hate checking bags, so I love the Nomatic Large Compression Cube. It is lightweight, durable and has a mesh window so you can see what’s inside. It uses a zipper system that can thicken your clothes by fifty percent, allowing you to pack more in your handbag.


atrac_keychain.jpg

$30

website

This tape is handy when traveling. I use it to attach a travel pillow to my suitcase, but you can also use it as a purse hook, secure your purse to your wrist with it, or stick it in your car to keep keys closed when bags are loaded. Pair it with a phone holder with Wallet to keep everything organized when going through security at the airport.


scrumptious_Travel_pillow.jpg

$99

website

The Honeydew Scrumptious Travel Pillow is the best travel pillow I have ever used. The tape design on the edges prevents it from becoming flat, and you can adjust the packing to the height you want. It provides amazing support for your head, neck and shoulders, and it has cool copper-infused padding that fights bacteria. It’s a bit larger than a traditional travel pillow, but it fits easily in your bag which has a sleeve that slips over your bag’s handles. It’s also a great alternative to uncomfortable hotel pillows.

$19.95

website

Attitude Leaves Bar Dry Body Oil absorbs quickly, hydrates without feeling greasy, and smells lovely. It uses a blend of grapeseed, jojoba, and avocado oils to nourish skin, and I love the solid, non-watery look that doesn’t spill in your bag. The packaging is plastic-free and biodegradable, and Attitude grows a tree for every product sold.


citrus_essentials.jpg

$35

website

Clean Age makes great kits with sustainable travel essentials. This set comes with mint toothpaste tabs in a cute cardboard milk carton, a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush, an unscented hand sanitizer that lasts up to six hours, and a natural deodorant with a fresh citrus scent. It has been packaged in a zip-up sunny bag.


dr_plotka_brush.jpg

5.99 US dollars

website

This is a deceptive fantasy travel toothbrush. It has silver-infused bristles to naturally get rid of 99% of bacteria, viruses and fungi and has thinner bristles designed to reach hard-to-reach places where cavities form. It can be folded to fit in your favorite travel bag easily.


noa_lux.jpg

$33

website

Add a little luxury to even the simplest of hotel rooms with this beautiful set of travel candles. The fragrances are sophisticated, the tin containers make them easy to fill, and the coarse wood wicks look soothing. Noa Lux uses a blend of apricot-coconut wax that burns perfectly, and their candles are free of parabens or phthalates.
