As an avid traveler, I have mastered my toiletry bag. So much so that I have an entire post on how I pack mine to perfection. But over the years I have tried many, and I mean MANY, toiletry bags. There are two that I love and have found myself using the most. The first is much larger and definitely one I pack anytime I’m going on a long trip that requires a carry-on. I’m not worried about the space and this just allows me to throw in extras. But the one that I have been using more often and especially so for carry-ons to maximize space is my Vera Bradley travel cosmetic bag.
Vera Bradley Travel Cosmetic Bags Review
Vera Bradley is a classic brand that is known for their bags and fun prints. But you know me, I hate prints. But thankfully this bag comes in tons of prints AND solid colors. Their bags are always of high quality and thoughtfully designed for functionality. And after trying this Vera Bradley cosmetic travel case, I am converted. I find myself never reaching for my big clunky one anymore. And if you need more than just a toiletry bag, Vera Bradley has tons of travel and travel accessory bags to choose from. Their weekender bag is another favorite. But they also have a travel pill case bag, beach lotion bags, hanging travel organizer and so much more.
But my personal favorite that I’m loving and can’t sing more praises on, is the Vera Bradley Performance Twill Lay Flat Cosmetic Makeup Organizer Bag.
This bag is only available on Amazon and is no longer sold on the Vera Bradley site. But they do have a similar one that doesn’t lay flat but is nearly identical. You can’t go wrong with their travel organizers either way. They are made so well and here’s why.
One of the things I’ve noticed about my Vera Bradley cosmetic cases is how easy they are to clean. They’re all machine washable which makes it so easy if something explodes in there while you’re traveling. Plus, they’re all made from lightweight materials like performance twill, cotton and microfiber. With PVC lining, your bag stays looking great for longer too. You can easily wipe them clean with a damp cloth if you don’t want to throw them in the washing machine. There are several great styles to choose from depending on your travel bag preference, or how you like to organize yourself.
I personally like the lay flat one the best. But have traveled with friends who have had the hanging travel bags and those are always so great. Super organized, easy to see everything, and clears up counter space which is so precious in tiny hotel rooms. No matter your style preference, there’s a Vera Bradley travel cosmetic bag for you.
Large Cosmetic Bag
This is a great size to hold all your things in the large compartment. It also has a separate smaller front pocket that can hold a decent amount. Inside is lined with PVC and the exterior is microfiber. It’s also machine washable which is ideal for when you’re dealing with makeup and toiletries.
This bag also comes in a recycled cotton and performance twill with lots of prints. Personally, I’m into the solid colors like black and navy. For dimensions, this is 10.0″ w x 7.25″ h x 4.25″ d. These are the exact same dimensions as the lay-flat version I have that is on Amazon. It just doesn’t open all the way but it holds a ton.
Medium Cosmetic Bag
Just like the above large cosmetic case, this has a PVC lining on the inside and a few options for exterior fabric. Microfiber, cotton or performance twill. The medium is significantly smaller than the large and the dimensions are 7.75″ w x 5.75″ h x 2.75″ d. This would be a good bag for just one type of toiletry, or just makeup. Whereas the large could hold a combination of the two.
Brush Up Cosmetic Case
I love this cosmetic bag as it has a separate compartment for your brushes keeping them safe and sound. You can fill this up with all your makeup in the main compartment, or a mix of toiletries and makeup. It comes in recycled cotton in fun prints or microfiber in solid black and navy.
Small Travel Cosmetic Bag
This little cosmetic bag is great for keeping in your purse for everyday touchups if that’s your thing. Or if you’re a minimalist with your makeup when you travel, you can use this just for that to keep things separate. The fabric is Vera Bradley’s ReActive which is lightweight, durable and water-repellent. It’s also eco-conscious and made from recycled PET water bottles
Hanging Travel Organizer
I feel like this is what Vera Bradley is known for. A hanging travel organizer is nice to have everything in sight and easy to grab when in your hotel room. This is great to just hang on a robe hook or towel bar to have your items out for easy access.
There are a few different hanging styles to choose from as well as fabric and print choices to suit anyone’s personal style.
Lay Flat Cosmetic Makeup Organizer Bag
The bag I have and love and swear by. This is only sold on Amazon (I think they discontinued it) but it comes in lots of colors and prints. It’s the exact same dimensions as the Large Cosmetic Bag, but it just opens fully and flat to have two separate compartments. I prefer this to keep things more organized and separate. One section is for my shower items, one is more for getting ready.
