The 8 Best Toiletry Bags That Will Keep You Super Organized When You Travel

Travelers tend to fall into two camps: those who make do with hotel-provided toiletries and those who pack their entire at-home arsenal. Whether you’re a barebones packer or a more-is-more traveler bringing hair masks and moisturizing essence, a toiletry bag is an essential part of your packing strategy. Organizing your products into a single pouch saves you time, energy, and valuable carry-on space—and most of ‘em are pretty cute to boot. Below are eight of our all-time favorite toiletry bags to take on your next trip.
