Shaving creams and gels have also made their way to portable sizes. Gilette, Barbasol and many other shaving companies make compact sized cans for portability and airline compliance. Just be sure you're not packing a straight razor!

Perfumes are often difficult to travel with, as most bottles exceed the 3oz. rule and very few companies sell TSA-compliant sizes. You may need to purchase a small pump spray bottle to fill with your favorite fragrance when traveling. Eagle Creek has a great set of 4 bottles with pop, flip, spray and pump interchangeable tops, as well as 2 pill cases and a toothbrush holder. It's all TSA compliant (case too!) and allows you to take your favorite toiletries along.

If you're not picky about the brands you use and want just the basics, many drug stores and general goods stores carry pre-packed travel kits to suit a variety of needs. Convenience Kits International has a large selection of kits tailored to men, women, babies, and even specific brands or body needs. Many stores also sell combination sets with a collapsible toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash for a quick grab-and-go solution.

Everyday Hygiene Items Your Bag Shouldn't be Without

Pocket-sized toiletries aren't just for travel anymore. There are plenty of instances in our daily lives where travel toiletries can come in handy, so they're worth packing in your purse, gym bag, or laptop case.
