Travel Essentials Volume II: Travel Size Toiletry Bottles
Packing liquids is a hassle when you travel by air, especially to a backpacker. So if you are planning to bring along your bottles of Victoria’s Secret perfumes, you are going to have to consider checking your luggage, baby. But if you’re like me who is allergic to checking a luggage, carefully packing liquids in travel size toiletry bottles is extremely important.
This is where the 3-1-1 rule comes in. This means 3.4 Oz (100 ml) bottle or less – 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag – 1 bag per passenger.
I pack light and I only bring the most essential stuff whenever I travel. I’m not a meticulous person in terms of beauty regimen, so the liquids that I bring are pretty much minimal. I only bring a moisturizer, contact lens solution, and lotion. Most of the time, I buy shampoos, soap, and toothpaste when I arrive at my destination.
Here are some of my favorite types of travel sized toiletry bottles that you can buy in Lazada or any Watsons store.
This type of containers are best for lotions, shampoos, and other liquids with a thicker consistency. It’s lightweight and easy to carry.
This is super important to people like me who uses contact lenses. I don’t wear contact lenses all the time, but I always bring one when I travel in case something happens to my eyeglasses. 😀
You can buy these bottles in sets with choices of lids, spray and squirt. The spray bottles are best for perfumes or disinfectants.
I usually store my moisturizer, sunblock, or loose powder in this type of container when I am traveling.
You can also recycle and use those cute plastic shampoo bottles you find at hotels. They just throw them anyway, so why not use it to your advantage, right? Sometimes, I even store my moisturizer or sunblock in my old contact lenses containers to save more space.
Travel size toiletry bottles are very affordable, and most of the time, you can buy them in sets in any drugstores in your area. I recently bought new ones and I only got all of them for 199 pesos! They are also reusable, so you get to save a lot of money in the long run.
