It can be liberating to travel lightly. And that can filter all the way down to your toiletries and beauty products. Add to that, these days, most brands both big and small offer carry-on-sized versions of their hero products. So don’t weigh your checked luggage down with legions of full-sized products, or risk having something confiscated during the security check; instead, this holiday season, give the gift of high-quality mini-sized beauty.
