I like to think that my husband and I travel a lot, and I am fairly particular about which products I use when I travel! That is why I LOVEEEE when I find my favorite products in a 3.4 oz container or less!! Haha it literally makes my day!! I found Dry Shampoo today at Nordstrom Rack in a travel size, and got overly excited! For some reason Dry Shampoo can be a tad hard to find in travel size. The last like 6 months it's been a bit easier to hunt down. Anyways, when traveling it is so important to have the correct size liquid containers, that is if you are carrying on a bag. When you check a bag it doesn't matter if you pack a jumbo size of shampoo or perfume! I personally like to carry on a bag. 1- because I know the airport people aren't stealing my stuff ( sorry, but that has happened before)... and 2- because I don't have to wait after I land for my bag to arrive... and 3- so that I'm not that sad traveler who doesn't have her bag the entire trip because it got lost in space. I'd prefer to have my stuff on the vacation, not when I arrive back home ten days later. Just saying! So, this post is for you people who are like me and rock a carry on bag most of the time!
Here are my absolute favorite travel size toiletries:
PSSSST! DRY SHAMPOO. I FOUND THESE AT NORDSTROM RACK FOR UNDER $3 EACH AND BOUGHT A FEW!!! GOOD DRY SHAMPOO IN TRAVEL SIZE IS HARD TO FIND SOMETIMES.
THE BODY SHOP BODY BUTTER LOTION. ALSO FOUND AT NORDSTROM RACK. SOMETIMES HOTEL LOTION JUST DOESN'T CUT IT. THE LINK IN TEXT IS TO PURCHASE IT AT ULTA.
GNC ALOE VERA CREAM. THIS IS ACTUALLY MY FACE LOTION!!! aND i LOVE IT! I USE THIS EVERY DAY AND AM SO HAPPY I NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT BEING TO BIG TO TRAVEL WITH ME. IT'S ONLY $2 AT GNC.
TRAVEL SIZE EMPTY CASES AND BOTTLES. These are so helpful! If you can't find your favorite products already bottled into travel size, you can simply put them into these empty ones.
DOVE DEODORANT. I have sensitive skin and under arms, this deodorant is gentle on the skin.
TINY VASELINE THIS IS MY FAVORITE "CHAP STICK". YOU CAN FIND THESE ALMOST EVERYWHERE.
Jore'l parker perfume sample size is from my ipsy bag!! I've received two different perfumes in my bags already and they are so amazing for on the go and travel!
Philosophy amazing grace shampoo, bath and shower gel I love this because you can use it for many things, and it smells amazing!
Wella Professionals extra volume styling mousse. ok... this one is tricky. my mom is a hair stylist and gets lots of samples. I would suggest asking your hair stylist if you can try samples of this or that... then you can get travel/sample size products. also, many hair salons sell smaller size products up near the front desk.
BELOW IS A PICTURE EXAMPLE OF WHAT IS ALLOWED ON AN AIRPLANE. THEY ARE VERY SPECIFIC AND THE LIQUIDS MUST BE UNDER 3.4OZ / 100 ML.
I hope this helps you pack in the future and hopefully helps avoid tsa from throwing away your beauty products because they are too large. Thanks for reading!
