The value of having a functional (and aesthetically pleasing) toiletry bag is immeasurable—and yet, it’s not always an easy feat to find the right one. If you ask us, a good kit should have room for everything, including minis of your favorite hair and makeup products and potentially more oversized items like your makeup tools and brushes. A major plus is a pouch equipped with several compartments (if they’re removable, even better) or different sections to help you organize your goods and enough room to fit a seven-step skin routine. Yes, it’s quite a big ask, but they do exist, and once you find the right bag, it’ll be one less thing to worry about on your next vacation.
Ahead are some of our personal favorites, plus the best toiletry bags we scoured online (so you don’t have to).
