Traveling is hard enough without having to worry about shattering glass containers and dropping pressed powders. Your beauty items deserve first-class treatment to make sure they all get to your destination in one piece. But that so-called VIP treatment doesn’t need to come at a VIP price.

Target sells a hardside compact case, as part of the retailer’s new Open Story luggage line, that will securely store your makeup, perfume, jewelry, nail polish, razors, tech and pretty much anything else. It’s a travel must-have — and it’s less than $20.

Hardside cases are great for cosmetics and perfumes, as many beauty items come in glass containers. And let’s not even begin talking about the heartbreak of a shattered pressed powder. With a hardside case, extra protection is in place, ensuring your items are secure for travel. Plus, this particular version has mesh interior pockets to hold even the most precious cargo and a full zip-around closure for easy access to all your items.

This particular hardside case is less than $20 from Target, making it a steal. It comes in five different colors — violet ice, sage green, champagne, rust and black — to match your already existing travel items.

“This is the travel accessory I never knew I needed,” one reviewer writes. “Usually, when I’m packing delicate items (jewelry, pills, sunglasses) I just tuck it in a side pocket and hope for the best. This little, but mighty, case will take all the worry out of safely packing those items.”

Forget packing delicate items and “hoping for the best.” This case will give you a little more protection, even on the bumpiest of rides. Think of it as the travel version of bubble wrap.
