Hello Friends! I recently traveled for business purposes, hence the lack of posts lately, and I was inspired to do this post because of these frequent trips and flights!
Not sure if any of you have traveled but there are very strict regulations as to what you can bring on flight (with your carry on luggage). Airports actually have something called: "3-1-1 For Carry Ons" pretty much what that means is that you can only carry 3.4 oz bottles (or less), in a 1 quart sized clear plastic zip-top bag, limit is 1 per person. This is unbelievably small considering the amount of products women use on a daily basis, however it is do-able!
Rather than buy a zip-top bag from the grocery store, I decided to buy a travel set from Bed Bath and Beyond, which comes with a few 3 oz bottles already in a heavy-duty zip-top bag! The bag only costs $4.99 and the one I picked up actually contributed a certain percentage of the purchase price to breast cancer research so I felt really good about buying it! I love these sets because everything they provide is already approved by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) so you know you shouldn't have any issues passing through security at the airport!
What I usually bring with me....
The 4 bottles which are included in the bag from BBB, I fill up with body wash, shampoo, hair serum/leave in conditioner, and perfume (container w/pump). In addition, I am able to fit the following products in my travel zip-top bag:
Almay Truly Lasting Color Foundation 1 Fl.oz
Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer .71 Fl.oz
ELF Eyeshadow Primer .17 Fl.oz
Bare Escentuals Lip Gloss 1.3 Fl.oz
Maybeline Great Lash Mascara .43 Fl.oz.
I also carry eyeshadow and makeup brushes which are included in another "makeup-bag" but since they are not liquids the 3-1-1 Carry On rule doesn't apply!
I hope you found this helpful, whether you are a frequent traveler, or a newbie, making sure that you follow the 3-1-1 Carry On rule really ensures that you pass through security in a speedy manner! For those who don't know, if you don't follow the 3-1-1 Carry On rule, they make you throw away the liquids (that go over the 3.4 Fl.oz limit and if they are not in a zip-top bag), or they make you check in your luggage, therefore please make sure you're prepared when flying!
