Toiletries can be the bane of many a female traveler. There are an awful lot of toiletries that we find ourselves using – I sometimes forget just how many, until I try to pack them all into a bag. And, for those female adventurers out there, packing one small toiletry bag so that you can fit everything into a backpack or carry on can be an extremely important task.
