Packing your bathroom essentials can be a hassle. It’s tempting to take all those tiny toiletries, throw them into a plastic bag, and call it a day.

Peak Design Wash Pouch

How long I’ve been using it: Since 2019; I use this one when I’m traveling with just a carry-on.

Why I like it: The Peak Design bag is water-resistant, making it easy to clean up any spills, and I like that there is a specific compartment for my toothbrush and another for my razor. Inside, there are a ton of small pouches to keep items organized. It’s my go-to for a long weekend trip.

Calpak clear cosmetic case

How long I’ve been using it: Nine months; it is the one I use when I’m checking a bag.

Why I like it: If I’m traveling for a week or more, I’ll bring Calpak’s clear cosmetic case in the large size. I’ll admit, I was overwhelmed by the size when it first arrived, but it does fit absolutely everything—toiletries, skincare, make-up, even my hairbrush, vitamins, and full-size contact solutions—and it’s nice to have everything in one place. Plus, the clear design means I can double-check that everything’s there at a glance.

Pond Los Angeles floral toiletry bag

How long I’ve been using it: Eight months

Why I like it: This floral toiletry bag is so functional and versatile: it works just as well to organize makeup products and tech accessories as it does toiletry essentials. I recently brought it with me on a weekend trip and I was so impressed with how much I could fit inside this seemingly small bag. I was able to keep my travel-size face wash and moisturizer laying flat inside, along with other must-haves like sunscreen and deodorant. I used the two elastic slip pockets to keep Q-tips and my contact lenses separate from everything else. I also utilized the thin slip pockets on the top of the bag for my go-to lip balm and lip liner. The bag is compact enough that it didn’t take up much room in my weekender bag, but still tall enough that some products can stand up straight inside, like my contact solution and small Vaseline tub. Bonus: It’s made of water-resistant fabric and features a top handle to easily carry it around.

3 products you’ll always find inside: I never travel without my Supergoop! Unseen sunscreenVaseline, and a travel-size CeraVe hydrating face wash.

Ceremonia Pouch de Mercado

How long I’ve been using it: A year and a half

Why I like it: There’s something about Ceremonia‘s colorful “market” pouch that puts me in instant vacation mode. It’s more of a makeup bag than a traditional Dopp kit, with a single main zippered compartment and no internal pockets, but that’s why I love it. Well, that and the fact that it’s also very cute and handmade from upcycled materials. It has a spill-proof lining—ideal for throwing greasy sunscreen bottles and my smudgy Marvis toothpaste in—and can fit about a weekend’s worth of product, which is really all I need and tend to use anyway (even on longer trips). Did I mention it’s also a great beach bag companion?

3 products you’ll always find inside: Victoria Beckham’s Future Lash, which gives the prettiest natural lift and rinses off with warm water; the fragrance oil I wear every day; and extra slip silk scrunchies, because you never know when one will vanish into the void.

Everlane The Renew Transit Catch-All case

How long I’ve been using it: 10 months

Why I like it: The space inside surprised me the most. I travel very light, and that applies not only to my carry-on but my toiletries as well. I take only the necessities. The toiletry case comes with five individual pockets that line the interior which is surprisingly roomy; if that’s not enough, then I can always stack my toiletries on top of one another in the center. I’ll often worry about my toiletry bottles becoming loose and leaking onto my clothes, but the one time I did have a mishap my anxiety was quelled once I saw the bag kept it contained.

3 products you’ll always find inside: Sol de Janiero Brazilian Bum Bum CreamLa Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair UV SPF Moisturizer, and the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Parfum in the travel-size bottle.

More Dopp kits we recommend

Calpak Terra hanging toiletry bag

“I don’t own this bag yet, but I think I need to. I spotted it on Instagram, and it’s the exact type of Dopp kit I’ve been looking for. With toothbrush and razor holders, an interior mesh pocket, a side pocket, and even elastic straps to stick in Chapstick, mascara, or whatever, it feels like a super smart organizing system (especially in contrast to my current method of throwing everything haphazardly into a roomy Baggu pouch). I love that it’s water-resistant, and the squared-off shape makes so much sense among my packing cubes. I also think the Terra collection this bag is a part of, which includes earth-toned, rugged-ready bags with tons of straps and compartments, is what might finally get me into Calpak luggage—this Dopp kit feels like Patagonia and Baboon to the Moon got together and decided to make a toiletry set for women who like a “gear” look but also want to organize their skin care products.”  —Megan Spurrell, senior editor
