Stay Fresh On-The-Go with Savvy Travelers

Sometimes when you travel, you may be on the plane or in the car for many hours and your teeth feel gross and you might feel like your deodorant is failing and whatever else. I hate to feel grungy and I always carry stuff in my purse that helps to make me feel more fresh, whether it's mints, gum or a packet of wet wipes. The problem with some of those is that they don't last long or they dry out. Savvy Travelers knows you are strapped for space when you travel and you also want to feel fresh and clean wherever you go.

No matter where you are or what you're doing, Savvy Travelers single packets can go with you. So, whether you're off camping for the weekend or headed to the amusement park for the week, you're covered. And they don't require water or need to fit in your 3-1-1 bag either. 


There are so many products out there to wash your face with that it can be difficult to pick one that works for your skin type. Of course, you could just be like me and hate all the hullabaloo that goes along with cleansing and just want to it to be quick and painless, but not make your skin dry or cause it to break out. TAKEoffz might be your new best friend at the end of a long day when you just want to climb into bed.
 

I love these. They are oil-free, moisturizing and does the work of a cleanser and toner in one. They're made with natural hydrating ingredients like aloe, chamomile and vitamin E. The wipe is soft and pulled all my makeup off with a few quick swipes, leaving my skin feeling squeaky clean and tingly. It smells nice, too, but not that strong, which is perfect for those with allergies (like me) or for men who might want to use these to just freshen up during the day or at the end, because they need to think about skin care, too.


You ever have that gross teeth feeling like you wish you had a toothbrush? I get that sometimes in the middle of the day, especially when I'm eating random things that I don't usually eat. The theme park is the worst, or that fuzzy feel your mouth gets during a long plane ride. SPEAKeazy is made for you. It's like a mouth wash in a wipe that can clean the surface debris off your teeth and freshen your breath. I waited until the end of the day, when I knew a brushing would do me some good and then I swiped SPEAKeazy over my teeth a few times and asked Eric how my breath was. He said it was minty and worthy of a kiss, so you can definitely talk to strangers from a normal distance without worrying about gross breath or scuzzy-feeling teeth. They are easy to use and have some nice little nubbies on the wipe to get in the crevices and dig out food pieces that might be hiding. You can fit a bunch in your purse, or one in your pocket to use whenever you need it, because you can't always just stop and brush your teeth wherever you are.

Okay, so I've had some iffy experiences with deodorant wipes. Either they are too girly smelling or I use two and the rest dry up or they don't work at all. You could carry a regular deodorant stick with you for reapplication during the day, but it takes up a bunch of room and if it's hot outside, it melts. It's all a big bunch of nope. I wanted to really test this one out. I already know they won't dry out if I just use one and then don't use the others right away. The NOsweat wipes are large (I dare say large enough that you could cut them in half and share them with a friend if you wanted) and have a pleasant mild smell (they aren't flowery or smell like baby powder). Appropriate for anyone who wanted to use them, man or woman. I opted to swipe this under my arms instead of using my normal deodorant stick. I'll tell you what: it was still working at the end of the day and I didn't even catch a little whiff of B.O. These are going to be a staple in my travel bag and my purse, because wow!


Those were my favorites of the sample pack I received, but the other products were just as awesome. IN THE klear wipes are fantastic lens cleaners. I used them on my glasses and they were clearer than they'd been since I got them at the ophthalmologist. I then used the same wipe on my computer screen, because it's a dust and dog hair magnet. They look like those thin alcohol pads you get in packets, but have no smell and aren't watery at all. These are great for cleaning your cell phone face as well. 

Got dry skin or need to wash up without a sink nearby? Use a KLEANupz wipe instead. It's antibacterial, but also hydrating. With ingredients including aloe vera and vitamin E, it moisturizes while killing 99.9% of germs. If you have kids, you need these, and the next one. 

Use the same germ-killing power on other surfaces, too. KLEANoffs are fierce cleansing wipes you can use on that gross hotel room phone and remote, restaurant tables and that germ-covered airplane tray table. It smells citrusy instead of like cleaning product, making your surroundings feel fresh instead of strictly sterile.

Now, you're probably worried about all these extra products you're taking with you, but don't, because all Savvy Travelers wipes are biodegradable and compostable and made using solar energy, making them environmentally friendly and convenient. They are also definitely not tested on animals, so they're also ethical. How can you go wrong? Buy each wipe in a set of 6 packets per box or get the travel pack that comes with 4 wipes each of their most popular wipes: NOsweat, IN THE klear, TAKEoffz and SPEAKeazy. 


Whether you're running into a meeting and keep these in your desk at work or sightseeing your way around Paris, these wipes can work in a pinch. Though the packaging can be more geared toward ladies, men can and do use Savvy Travelers as well, because the smells are unisex and work for everyone, plus they're super convenient and easy to pack (TSA compliant and all that). Who wouldn't want a few of these in their pocket or carry-on...or briefcase, for that matter?
