Find: LUSH Massage Bar
I'm always on the lookout for items that I can carry on that are solids, not liquids, so as to avoid taking up precious space in my bag. So far my only successful sub has been switching from liquid facewash to the Neutrogena Facial Bar. I've tried solid perfumes with no success, as well as dry shampoo, which works in a pinch but won't keep your hair clean for too long.
Over the weekend I made a fantastic discovery. If lotion is one of the things that you include in your carry-on beauty kit, I highly recommend trying the LUSH Body Bar. It's a fantastic substitute for liquid lotion, and it's a solid bar, so no squeezing it into the ridiculosly small Ziploc baggie. I bought one over the summer at the LUSH event at Blogher '09, and hadn't realized the full potential of the bar, since it's called a Massage Bar. In actuality, you can use it to moisturize your skin from head to toe.
