With so many cult-favorite beauty products on the market, it can be tempting to want to give each one a try. However, beauty isn't always the most affordable product category to indulge in.
Luckily, that's why travel-size items exist. You don't always need to have a flight booked for a reason to pick up a few mini versions of makeup and skin care favorites. If you're looking for a more affordable way to try out that setting spray or bestselling concealer you've had your eye on, travel-size is the way to go — especially before purchasing the pricier full-size package.
Whether you finally want to give that award-winning mascara a go, or you actually do have a trip lined up before the end of the summer, we rounded up some of the best travel-size beauty products under $25 at Sephora you can shop right now. Trust us, you won't want to go anywhere without them.
