The term "travel-friendly" is that one product claim that's almost as engaging as "affordable" and "gentle." It just gives things an illusion of convenience and ease, sometimes without even actually being so. But let's be real: All skincare products can be travel-friendly if they're under 100ml and securely packed. That is, unless it's something you can literally just throw into your suitcase and not worry about until you land. Does such a product even exist? Of course.

Introducing, cleansing sticks, the solid cleanser that's sweeping the K-beauty world. Ignore the fact that its cylindrical packaging reminds you of, well, deodorant, it foams up and cleans your skin just like a regular face wash, only without the mess. Think of it as the skincare equivalent of a foundation stick, which you apply directly onto your skin instead of with your fingers, brush, or sponge. After application, all that’s left for you to do is lather and rinse.

Our favorite thing about cleansing sticks is that they don't dry out the skin. They are primarily formulated with skincare oils, which help maintain its shape, as opposed to regular soap ingredients that can cause drying. A lot of cleansing sticks claim to be all-in-one cleansers that remove makeup as well. They’re just too convenient to pass up.
