Skincare on a stick may sound weird but they’re changing the beauty world for the better. With big bottles of skincare competing for shelf space and an increasingly fast-paced lifestyle, women are constantly searching for products that will make their life simpler and more efficient. This is why skincare sticks are the perfect tools for the modern woman on the go. There’s no more need to dip your fingers into products to apply, or worry about leakage and spillage. Speaking from experience, squeezing (or accidentally squeezing too hard) can be annoying. The gunk that builds up under the caps is gross. Pumping out the last few drops of product is a chore. And lastly, taking the extra precaution (and then stressing out) that your products don’t leak or explode en route the flight is the worst. To put it simply, skincare sticks eliminate all of these problems. They’re also oh-so-easy to use, portable and travel-friendly. Now, it’s even possible to find cleansers and toners in the form of a stick! Check out some of our favourites below.
