    This type of facial cleanser looks and swivels like a deodorant stick, is as portable as one, and is even swiped on in the same way. The difference: Its balm-like texture ensures the product glides smoothly over skin and doesn’t tug. To use: Twist, run tube over wet hand, work product into a lather, clean face, rinse.

    A cleansing stick travels well: there are no liquid restrictions to consider. To keep it clean after each use, rinse and wipe down the top layer of the balm with tissue paper. Keep it capped until your next use.
