We know the struggle: You’re packed and ready to go on vacation, only to find out that the travel-sized shampoo in your carry-on doesn’t fit the TSA requirements — or that tiny plastic bag you’re given in the security line. Luckily, travel-sized product retailer 3FLOZ is changing the way you pack with their beauty vending machines! The automated retail stores are filled to the brim with beauty staples from brands like Malin + Goetz, Yes to Carrots, and more, that may not have made it through the security line, or were left at home. “We created 3FLOZ for people who want to look and feel their best wherever they are. Yes, it’s about beauty and grooming, but it’s also the peace of mind in knowing you have your necessities on the go,” said co-founder Kate Duff. “By being in airports, we are physically there with instant gratification where our customers need us most.” 3FLOZ’s automated retail stores are currently available in nine airports in the US, including Houston, Las Vegas, New York’s JFK, and Dallas, with plans to open 25 more before the end of the year. The company is aiming to roll out 100 more outposts internationally, so pay extra attention to the vending machines on your next getaway.
