Good Things, Small Packages: Travel Beauty Hits The Hamptons

As summer enters its final phase, plenty of New Yorkers will be heading towards the Hamptons. Those reserving rooms at two of the Long Island area’s swank resort/residences—Montauk’s Panoramic View and Amagansett’s Ocean Dunes—get a bonus (in addition to the beach views and swimming pools, of course). They get a 20% discount on a customized bag of mini beauty and grooming products from

For those not in the know (and don’t feel bad, I was one of your number until a few days ago), Travel Beauty is a website that specializes in petit-sized skin care, hair care and cosmetic items—no larger than the 3.4 ounces the TSA dictates. The sort of mini-me tubes and jars you find in those makeup companies' gift-with-purchase bags or better hotel bathrooms. Only, this isn’t your standard hotel stuff. Travel Beauty’s brands span the globe—Elemis from Britain, Lavido from Israel, Arimino from Japan, to name a few. And the offerings are far from the usual hotel samples of shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion: think facial cleansers and eye creams, blemish gels and repair masks, sunscreens and moisturizers. And for the boys: tiny shaving creams and gear from the prestigious likes of Taylor of Old Bond Street.

Here’s how it works: You go online, build your own kit of products (you can buy a literal kit too), then check out. They’ll send the goodies to your home—or directly to a hotel. (Guests of the aforementioned Hamptons resorts receive a promotional code when they book their rooms, which applies the discount when they’re on the TravelBeauty website).

At the risk of sounding cliché—good things do come in small packages.
