As a frequent traveler, I am always on the lookout for products that can make my life easier on the road. I’m not particularly organized, so I need all the help I can get. Enter Cadence – a line of stylish magnetic travel containers that have completely changed the way I pack.
The small, angular “capsules” (as they call them) are a perfect mix of form and function. They come in a range of gorgeous colors, and you can mix and match them to your preferences. I got a 6-piece set ($76) in all terracotta. (See how sophisticated this shade looks below.) Cadence capsules are made from lightweight, durable materials that can withstand the rigors of travel – they’re 100% leakproof, a necessity if you’re packing shampoo, lotion, or anything with the potential for mess.
Cadence gives you the option to build your own capsule system – you can build a 6-set or a 12-set and then add on individual capsules as needed. It’s a fun mini-adventure; you not only choose your number of capsules, size, and color, but you also select from a range of labels. (There are standard options like “Cleanser” and “Conditioner,” as well as cute icons like waterdrops and rainbows for a touch of whimsy.) There are also pre-labeled systems, like “Bestsellers” (from $76) and “Days of the Week” (from $88), if you suffer from choice paralysis.
I love that Cadence tells you not only how much product can fit in each container, but how many uses that translates to (9-10 uses for oil cleanser, for example). Details like this elevate the brand from being a lovely luxury item to something practical – helpful for long trips and quick overnights alike.
But one of the biggest selling points for me was Cadence’s sustainability factor. I’ve been wanting to switch from the standard travel containers that are so readily available at drugstores but are decidedly not environmentally friendly. Cadence capsules are made from 20% recycled ocean-bound plastic and 30% excess manufacturing material – part of their effort to reduce waste. They’re also socially and globally conscious; 100% of profits from the Rainbow Icon, Heart Icon, and Wave Icon go to a slew of impressive non-profit partners.
Overall, I can't recommend Cadence capsules enough. They’ve cut down on the amount of bulk in my luggage, have streamlined my packing process, and are just straight-up chic. If you’d prefer not to open up your suitcase at the end of a long flight, only to find that your clothes are covered in goopy body wash… Cadence magnetic capsules are the only solution.
