Treat Yourself, Don’t Cheat Yourself…
With two homebound cross country flights booked for the holiday season, I know as well as anyone that traveling during this time of year can make you feel insanely discombobulated. Until recently, I used to sacrifice the majority of my skincare and wellness routine on trips due to TSA restrictions or overcrowded luggage…
That is, until my flight attendant friend put me on to Cadence’s travel-friendly capsules a few months ago. The sleek, leak-proof, and eco-friendly capsules instantly upgraded my packing game, so when I found out that they had these amazing gift bundles, I just knew I had to share (especially with the holiday season in full swing).
Keep a Set, Gift a Set
Tired of tired of haphazardly throwing bottles into bags or leaky products in your luggage? In that case, I seriously recommend Cadence. Their durable, adorable, and sustainable capsules will totally elevate any travel experience or turn that cluttered medicine cabinet into something even Marie Kondo would swoon over.
And if you’re looking for a holiday gift that anyone on your list will appreciate, Cadence has a gift guide packed with all of their best-selling capsule sets. I’m planning to get the Bestsellers set for my mom and the Skincare Staples set for all of my besties.
They also have a dope gift card experience available for the holiday season. When you buy a gift card, you also customize two capsules for the recipient—so they get both a physical present and a gift card to go on to Cadence’s website and customize their own set!
If you’re out of the loop on Cadence, allow me to explain why I’m such a massive fan of their life-proof capsules and how they’ll save you from any packing nightmares this holiday season and beyond:
Made for Real Life
No matter how careful I am about packing my toiletries, something always leaks in my bag when I’m on the go. Thankfully, that’s no longer an issue for me now that I have Cadence capsules. Leak-proof and air-tight, these life-savers keep all of my products exactly where they’re supposed to be—whether I’m traveling or just running errands.
Cadence capsules are super durable too. Each magnetic capsule is double-walled with a water-tight seal and twist-on cap, which means that even if airport staff manhandles my luggage, I can breathe easy knowing my toiletries won’t get smashed or leak.
Customized to Fit Your Flow
As someone who can’t be trusted with a label maker, one of my favorite parts of these capsules is how customizable they are. Each capsule is designed to fit an endless array of travel necessities—from vitamins and serums to earrings or toothpaste tablets. As the original label-making queen, I just know my mom is going to love these capsules when she opens her present at the end of the month.
When you create a custom Cadence set, you first select the color of each individual capsule—creating an eclectic mish-mash or a uniform set. Then, you choose the labels for the magnetic lid tiles, which can be swapped out so you always know exactly what product is inside. Cadence has a list of common items to choose from, or you can create your own custom labels in any language you’d like!
I learned the hard way: even if your products are in bottles smaller than 3 oz, there’s a good chance they’ll get tossed at TSA if the volume isn’t clearly labeled on the bottle (which most dollar-store bottles aren’t). Cadence, of course, knew this already. That’s why their 0.56 oz capsules are clearly marked. Now, getting my entire skincare routine thrown in the trash before a red-eye (again) is one less thing to worry about.
And while these carry-on-friendly capsules are small, they fit wayyy more than I thought they would. Cadence has a Capacity Calculator linked in the product descriptions on their website that actually shows how much of standard items fit into the capsules!
The Holy Grail of Form + Function
I first found out about Cadence on Instagram. Considering the super-compact, hexagonal capsules are as gorgeous as they are easy to use, this probably comes as no surprise. The design isn’t just for aesthetic reasons, though. The sleek, honeycomb-inspired capsules feature wide-mouth openings for filling with ease, whereas traditional narrow-necked toiletry containers are a complete mess to fill.
I’ve thrown my fair share of plastic bottles away after trips because they were too difficult to clean or reuse. Cadence’s capsules, on the other hand, are leaps and bounds better than those expensive mini bottles because I can use and re-use them again and again after a quick hand-wash. If you decide to get one for a friend this holiday season, the will truly be the gift that keeps on giving.
Single-use plastic has long been on its way out, and I don’t think anyone is interested in contributing to the plastic crisis. Unfortunately, since most travel-sized containers end up in the bin, taking a trip can be a wasteful experience. That’s where Cadence comes in. Their infinitely-reusable capsules don’t just help me reduce my single-use plastic waste—they’re also made with a percentage of ocean-bound plastic.
Cadence capsules were designed to last a lifetime, which is a win-win for me and the environment. And on a more selfish note, making the investment into Cadence helps me save money in the long-run by ensuring that I no longer have to buy overpriced mini versions of my favorite products.
Build Your 6 or Give as a Gift
Cadence completely elevated my travel game, and I know they will for you too. Whether you’re a frequent flyer or a staycation connoisseur, they have a convenient and chic capsule set for you. And not that anyone can “win Christmas,” but you’ll definitely be a fan favorite this year when you take advantage of their super hype gifting experience.
I said it once, and I’ll say it again: Cadence is the gift that keeps on giving, so don’t miss out on your chance to customize capsules for yourself and your loved ones this holiday season.
