Philosophy Purity Made Simple one-step facial cleanser, $10 at Sephora

While I have no problem running to the drugstore pre-flight to pick up TSA-friendly toothpaste and shampoo, one thing I never skimp on is skincare. After a frustrating experience attempting to transfer my large-sized cleanser into a tiny travel bottle (the liquid takes forever to go down, you know?) I went on a mad search for a high-quality, miniature cleanser with an equally tiny price tag. Philosophy's 3 oz Purity Made Simple one-step facial cleanser is a winner.

Only $10 at Sephora, this bestselling multi-tasker deep cleanses pores and removes makeup completely, so you can finally say peace out to wipes. It's infused with chamomile, sage, and carrot, leaving skin smelling great, and an excellent Clarisonic companion, too. I like to keep a bottle in the shower.
