Travel Squeeze Pods: A Flaming Vegan Staff Pick

If you live a very on-the-go lifestyle, travel regularly, or fly often, you know what a pain it can be to pack toiletries. It seems like such a simple task! Until you run into one of the many problems that can clog the process: bottles that are too large or awkward, and/or difficult airline policies. Careful care must be taken to ensure your belongings don't get doused in shampoo. You know the drill. Enter-- Squeeze Pods.

Squeeze Pods are innovative, single-use pods designed for convenient travel. They’re leak-proof, TSA compliant, easy to use, and made with premium natural ingredients. Plus, each pod is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. The Squeeze Pods people have created a number of products for your travel needs. Ready to learn about your perfect new travel companions?

I never knew products existed to leave your toilet odor-free ,until I tried the Toilet Odor Eliminator Squeeze Pod. It's simple to snap open, but sturdy enough that stuffing it into your overnight bag won’t accidentally pop the pod open. They’re reliable and perfectly scented. Eucalyptus and grapefruit oil were used in this particular pod to mak odor.  The pod contains Saccharomyces (yeast), which ferment to eat up odor-causing bacteria. Cool, right? When you're traveling and discretion is the name of the game, these handy little pods are a helpful companion indeed.

I personally have shoulder-length, thick, and curly hair. So when I saw the size of the shampoo pod, I was a little worried there wouldn’t be enough to thoroughly cleanse my hair. But the quarter-sized dollop of shampoo was plenty to clean my scalp and roots. The smell is crisp and refreshing, with Nettle and White Tea extracts. *Bonus: It's free of Sulfates and is safe for colored hair!

As the owner of a ton of hair, I was worried that the conditioner would not come close to actually conditioning it, or that I would have to use multiple Squeeze Pods to get the job done. I was totally proven wrong. Less is definitely more with this product. The smell matches the shampoo, so you’re not overloaded with too many different scents. The pods in concert left me with soft, shiny, delectable hair.

Vanilla and lavender combine to give off a relaxing scent I enjoyed. Ah, pure bliss. The pod provides the perfect amount to squeeze on and wash all over. My skin was smooth and moisturized after showering with the Squeeze Pod body wash, whereas other soaps and body washes often leave my skin feeling stripped of natural oils. The main cleansing ingredient seems to be Willow Bark Extract, which provides an effective, gentle, and natural clean.

These little shave cream pods provide plenty to coat a furry face, but I wish they held a little more product for shaving legs. I used the pods on my legs and one pod was enough for a super thin layer of cream, so I had to use two pods. The shave cream left my skin extremely smooth and helped me get a perfectly close shave. Even with a slightly dull razor, I still got fantastic results.

I used the lotion pod right after washing my face, shaving my legs, and on my hands when they felt dry. The Squeeze Pod lotion is non-greasy and absorbs quickly and completely. It left my skin touchable and soft for hours! I could not stop feeling how smooth my legs were all day long. The mix of grapefruit and bergamot is just wow. Such an inspiring smell. Sunflower seed oil, shea butter, and jojoba oil join together to bring out the best in your skin.

This pod smells like pomegranate and lilac and it’s definitely my favorite scented product out of the bunch! The green tea extract enriches your skin cells and lets you put your best face forward while you’re traveling. It moisturizes as it cleanses thanks to sunflower oil, olive oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter.

It may feel a little slimy when you squeeze this pod into your hands, but never fear. It’s just the aloe that moisturizes your hands while you sanitize. This purifier contains alcohol, but doesn’t dry out your skin like other alcohol hand sanitizers. There is a magical combination of extracts that make this hand purifier smell complex and engaging: grapefruit, lemongrass, orange, cinnamon, thyme, peppermint, pine, and clove oils.

I don’t really use hair gel often, but I gave this one a go. It has a light hold, so I put some on damp hair to tame stray hairs and some mild summer frizziness. Corn Starch is what gives this gel its natural hold. It works well to lightly hold hair in place and leaves hair soft and manageable unlike other gels, which can leave hair feeling crunchy or greasy-looking.


Squeeze Pods are convenient and easy to use. Each pod is leak-proof, and perfect for traveling anywhere, whether you’re in a plane or car. The pod’s small size is perfect, especially when compared to lugging around full-sized bottles of toiletries. Each product smells amazing, invigorating, and uplifting. It is inspiring how dedicated Squeeze Pods are to natural and cruelty-free ingredients.

The one downfall of the product is that the single-use pods use foil to protect the integrity of the natural products inside, so the pods have to go directly into the trash. This is something that the company has stated they will try to fix in the future to make the pods more eco-friendly.
