One of the serious perks of living in Southeast Asia is the TRAVEL. Some of the world’s most amazing destinations are a quick – and generally inexpensive – flight away from Hong Kong. Whether it’s secluded Thai beaches, hidden restaurants in Shanghai, or amazing fabric markets off the beaten path in Bali, there is just so much to explore.
An unusual travel tip for you today: TSA-approved, travel-sized 3oz haute beauty products, courtesy of a new online boutique, 3floz.com (2020 update: this site has now closed).
The concept is simple – they stock up on the chicest, choicest luxury beauty, grooming and personal care products that are all 3 fluid ounces or less from names like Malin+Goetz, Dr. Hauschka, Blow, Yes to Carrots, Ted Gibson, Ole Henriksen, and so many others. Plus they have a wide selection of ready-made kits that are simply perfect for your carry-on, your gym bag, your handbag…
In addition to simplifying your travel prep (thank you!), it’s also a great way to sample new products at a fraction of the price of their full-size counterparts. And anything that helps me avoid having to tearfully chuck one of my favorite beauty goodies – or being forced to check a bag rather than just carrying on – is just plane perfect.
