Product Review: Zero Percent Jet Set Travel Pack

These travel-sized toiletries are free of harsh ingredients such as sulfates.

What is it: A toiletries bag full of 1 oz. sized products.

Price and Where to Buy: Available on Gilchrist & Soames’ website.

Pros:

  • Comes in a clear, waterproof bag that’s great for airport security
  • All products meet the 3-1-1 rule
  • Shampoos and shower gels are sulfate-free
  • Includes a skincare bar and a cleansing bar
  • Paraben and phthalates free
  • No artificial colors
  • Not tested on animals

Cons:

One ounce size bottles won’t be enough for longer trips

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 8/10. There’s nothing easier than a pre-packaged toiletries kit that you can just throw in your suitcase and not fuss with refilling bottles
  • Value: 9/10. At $12 for seven items (plus a tote bag), this is a great deal
  • Portability: 10/10. The waterproof tote will contain any spills that might happen
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. The Zero Percent line has eco-friendly cred.

Final Verdict: If you steer clear of freebie hotel shampoos and body washes due to their sulfates, this is a great travel kit for you.
