Japan seems to think the same way - and has a bunch of perfect-for-travel small packaged items that are lightweight, easy to throw in a bag, and will get you out of a bind in no time flat. Best of all, they'll only set you back a few hundred yen a pop!
Here's 5 easy peasy travel savers that I found in the beauty section of my local department store (that are convenient as everyday items, too!)
Spot remover sheets
These were 283 yen (+ tax).
Germ killing toilet wipes
How many times have you been out and about traveling and encountered a bathroom that seemed less than sanitary?! Thankfully, this doesn't happen much at all in Japan (everything is so clean - yippeeee!) but I do think these are great to keep on you if you're somewhere that could benefit with a bit of a wipe down! Pull one of these out of your bag, and hooray - germs eliminated!
These will set you back 218 yen (+tax).
Super effective make up wipes
No more panda eyes after a night out in Roppongi - these are the best make up wipes I've found here for getting rid of mascara and eyeliner. Some brands don't seem to have the oomph that these Biore ones do - I think they're great because they are specifically designed to remove eye make up. You'll look fresh as a daisy for that early bullet train you have to catch!
These wipes are 267 yen (+tax).
Tooth brushing sheets
Ever been in a situation when you're traveling and want to brush your teeth - but maybe you don't have access to a sink and a running water tap at that very instant? Go one better than popping a piece of gum into your mouth, and stock up on some of these tooth brushing sheets. They're everything you need for a quick freshen up - and come on, they have a cute little face on the packaging. You're already won over by that aspect, right?
These were only 198 yen (+tax).
These were a bargain at 184 yen (+tax).
I hope those 5 travel-friendly wipes will save you for a bunch of different situations - and not weigh you or your luggage down in the process!
