… Because I have no chill when it comes to traveling with my beauty and wellness routine
My suitcase is usually stuffed to the brim with all of the creams, serums, and vitamins I may possibly need on a week-long trip. As you can imagine, packing can feel like playing travel-sized toiletry Tetris and always ends up with at least one casualty in the form of an exploded bottle of shampoo. No bueno.
With spring break around the corner this year, I decided to order a set of 100% leak-proof, modern minimalist capsules from Cadence, a brand I’d been eyeing on Instagram for more than a few months. The capsules have garnered an impressive collection of praise—from Forbes and The New York Times to The Strategist—and I’m so personally impressed by them that I want to add my two cents into the mix.
Editor’s Note: for a limited time, you can get free shipping when you spend $75+, so there’s no better time to build your custom capsule set!
Say 👋 To Space Wasting Travel Containers
Bye-bye clunky mismatched travel bottles! Cadence’s capsules are satisfying to look at, but they’re even more functional than they are beautiful. The magnetic honeycomb design minimizes wasted space in any toiletries bag, and the fact that there are no corners means I can bring less product in each capsule knowing that I’ll be able to get every last drop of it out.
My favorite part is that I can portion out the exact amount of supplements or products needed and arrange my pills by days of the week, keeping my routine consistent even on vacation.
“Those Are Beautiful… What Are They?!” 😍
… Someone asks (literally) every time I pull them out.
Cadence’s capsules have as much function as they have form. They’re dishwasher safe, easy to open and close, and fit a surprising amount of liquid – all of which makes packing my daily essentials, from vitamins to moisturizer, a breeze. They also just look dang good every single time I pull them out of my suitcase.
And speaking of suitcases, since these capsules are TSA-compliant, I don’t have to worry about being held-up in line, or airport security confiscating my beloved products.
No Wasted Product… More Money for Piña Coladas!
Travel-sized cosmetics are a rip-off, averaging a 177% markup over standard-sized products. The only thing more infuriating than that? Opening up my bag to find my ultra-expensive mini bottle of retinol has leaked onto my even MORE expensive makeup. Cadence’s proprietary leak-proof design means I can skip the overpriced travel bottles and confidently pack my favorite products at home knowing they’re protected from spills.
While Cadence is an investment, the amount of product I’m saving from spillage actually means Cadence saves me money in the long run. That means I can treat myself to just one more piña colada on the beach.
Less Time Packing 👉 More Time for Trip Planning
I’ve always waited until the very last second to pack, which usually looks like an 11PM trip to the convenience store for throwaway plastic containers…until now. Cadence thought of everything when designing their capsules, making packing my self-care routine so easy I actually get excited to do it. The wide-mouth capsules are nearly effortless to fill and fit everything from shampoo to vitamins and jewelry.
Plus, I can swap out the interchangeable, customized labels based on which products I’m taking with me. With all of the time Cadence saves me, I can research the best places for fish tacos!
Recycled Ocean Plastic = Better For Our Planet
Cadence’s capsules are made from recycled, ocean-bound plastic, and unlike crappy travel containers that crack or leak after one or two uses, they’re BPA-free, life-proof and virtually indestructible. (Seriously, check out this video). This durability is crucial for keeping my products safe while traveling, but it also helps me cut back on single-use plastic because these will last for life.
This means Cadence is not only removing plastic directly from the ocean, but keeping more plastic from heading there too. Now that’s what I call a win-win.
Cadence: The Travel Accessory Of The Season
Cadence’s personalized capsules are the result of hundreds of prototypes, and it’s clear in the final product. From the intuitive screw-off lids to the magnetic features, everything about Cadence’s small and mighty travel capsules just makes sense.
Sure, they’re *aesthetic,* but more importantly, they’re leak-proof, durable, and impossibly easy to use (and re-use). And I won’t lie, I know I’ll feel better laying on beach with the knowledge that I’m helping to reduce the amount of single-use plastic in our oceans.
