Hair & Beauty, Honeymoons & Destination Weddings

Between your wedding dress, accessories, honeymoon outfits and everything in between, there's no doubt that space in your luggage is at a premium. But even though it's important to pack light, there are some things — like your toiletries — that you don't want to skimp on. Whether it's a glow-inducing face mask to brighten up your complexion before the big day or a texturizing spray your hair will survive off during your honeymoon, these pretty little minis are all under 3.4 ounces so you can look amazing no matter the itinerary or destination.

That moisture-zapping hotel bar soap isn't going to cut it — especially on your face. This rich, yet gentle face wash wicks away excess oil while encouraging hydration with a unique mix of broad leaf extract, wheat protein and tourmaline. What's more, it smells amazing, and the spearmint and lavender scent immediately puts you in a cheery mood. ("Checks and Balances" frothy face wash" $12 for 1.7 oz., Origins)

We're sticklers for waterproof makeup that stays put throughout the entire wedding day, but that means taking it off before bed can be a struggle. Each of these towelettes are soaked with soothing, hydrating micellar water that instantly melts away stubborn foundation, mascara and lipsticks without tugging at your skin. Plus, the resealable package means it won't dry out when you toss it in your carry on. ("Take the Day Off" micellar cleansing towelettes for face and eyes, $14 for 50 towelettes, Clinique)
