Self-care is a must, and for a woman of my age, that means a lot of products. From my beloved Vitamin C serum and face scrub to eye cream, lotion and sunscreen, my personal care routine is, in a word, robust.
And, when I’m traveling, my collection gets more extensive. I need contact solution, toothpaste, Aquaphor, body lotion, shampoo and conditioner, not to mention aloe vera for sunny vacations. Rounding up all this product for a trip is chaotic and unsightly — I’m used to throwing half-used containers in my suitcase alongside travel-sized options and transparent drug-store holders. All in all, it’s a hot mess.
My travel nightmare of throwing everything in a bag and hoping for the best is why Cadence Capsules piqued my interest. The Capsules are a system of buildable, customizable, refillable and leakproof magnetic containers that were designed to keep your personal care products in order. Cadence Capsules advocate for less waste (adios, single-use plastics!), while also providing an organized way to harness all your stuff. And each Capsule is pretty, too, especially when several are magnetically clustered together in a honeycomb shape.
The perfect way to organize your liquids in your suitcase
Build your own Capsule set of six. The hexagon-shaped containers are magnetic, so they stick together to create the perfect honeycomb travel companion. They’re 100% leakproof, TSA-compliant and made from recycled materials. When it comes to transporting your liquids, gels, creams and more, a set of Cadence Capsules is the perfect option for travelers.
The Capsules were dreamed up by Cadence founder Steph Hon and meant to fill a void in the market when it came to organizational solutions. “It was between traveling to work, camping trips and workout classes that I first noticed the consumer need for a well-designed and quality organization solution that is supportive of both their environment and their modern multiplicity as athlete, urbanite and individual with a personal care routine,” she tells CNN Underscored.
A former home organizer for celebrities, Hon brought that background to the table when she set out to create Cadence. In her quest to do so, she spent three years and went through more than 200 prototypes before landing on the Capsule’s current look. “I knew that in order to create something better, I had to completely reimagine what already existed,” she explains. “With persistence, attention to detail and with the right engineers, we created Cadence Capsules — a buildable system to fit everyone’s unique routine.”
But are the Cadence Capsules worth the splurge for a set of organizational containers? We thought so.
What we loved about them Cadence Capsules are meant to hold your essentials — from the aforementioned daily products to vitamins, rings, hair ties and more — in a way that is organized, aesthetically pleasing, planet-friendly and ultra-durable. Like, seriously durable. The brand tried dropping a Capsule from a two-story building and it didn’t crack, but instead, it bounced.
Each Capsule boasts a soft hexagonal shape, a wide opening and a rounded floor, all of which makes for easy filling and scooping out. In other words, there are no tough angles to get that last drop of moisturizer from a hard-to-reach corner.
Each of the Capsules is about 1.8 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide, so even when grouped as a set of six, they don’t take up much room. In fact, you can fit up to 15 Capsules in a quart-sized bag. The Capsules were also designed with sustainability in mind, a point we admire. They’re made from 20% recycled ocean-bound plastic and 30% excess manufacturing material. Plus, since they’re multi-use, you can more easily avoid wasteful single-use plastics on your travels.
Breaking each Capsule down, there’s a base, watertight lid and removable Tile that denotes what’s in each Capsule. Perhaps the best part of all is that each Capsule component is fully magnetic and can cling to one another, ensuring you’ll never lose any pieces. Plus, since they’re magnetic, you can mold them into different shapes to fit in any kind of nook or crevice in your favorite carry-on bag. And after testing the Capsules for more than a month, I can attest that these little suckers are total pros at storing all my stuff, from pills to oils.
During my testing, I found that each Capsule is truly airtight and waterproof. If you were to accidentally drop one in the toilet, for example, your vitamins would stay dry inside thanks to the lid’s industrial-tight seal. The Capsules are also TSA-compliant, BPA-free, top-rack dishwasher-friendly and
