As a frequent(ish) flyer with only a carry on piece of hand luggage it has become second nature to pack travel toiletries for my trip. Unlike a couple of girls at Stansted airport the week before last who had packed their full sized shampoos, conditioners, body lotions etc. in between their clothes, there wasn’t a plastic bag in sight. This meant not only were the majority of their toiletries confiscated (making lack of planning an expensive mistake) but it also held up the queue at security which is never appreciated by fellow passengers or the members of staff who have to deal with the problem.
Therefore it is important that everyone knows the regulations relating to taking liquids through security to ensure you get to keep what you bring and other people don’t get frustrated with you – Information from Gov.uk*
Therefore when Travel Toiletries 2 Go got in contact with us, I was eager to work with them. As the person who has been stuck behind the person who simply packed the contents of their bathroom cabinet in their carry on, I feel it’s my duty to promote travel toiletries to stop people (me!) tutting and muttering under my breath/sometimes quite loudly at people who don’t pack them.
Travel Toiletries 2 Go offer most, if not all the toiletries that you will need for your short break whether it be abroad or even in your own country. I mean come on who wants to lug full sized bottles with them for a night or so away? Including shower, hair care, deodorant, dental, shaving, face, body and lip items. The fact that you can buy your usual brand as a travel toiletry is a bonus for me too. I have thick, coloured hair and use Pantene Smooth and Sleek usually, so was happy to see that I could get it as a miniature. With an easy to search site, I’m sure you will find what you want easily. With more collections being added all the time.
If your favourite brand does not produce travel toiletries or Travel Toiletries 2 Go does not stock them, then not to worry. They also offer empty bottles, that meet regulations, that you can decant your products into to take away with you and of course reuse. The Travalo Classic Excel Atomiser is a winner in my book as it means I do not have to take a full size bottle of perfume with me when I travel. When I do pack one I always panic that I drop my bag and smash it. So I have in the past, when not wanting to risk it, not taken any with me. Not anymore, my atomiser will come in very handy on all future trips and even on a daily basis as it easily fits in my handbag.
