I’ve never travel just with hand luggage but last week on my two day trip to Glasgow I was unable to take a check in luggage and therefore was restricted on the liquids I could take. I was quite strict with myself but thought I would give you a very quick tour.
I started by packing my basics a mini toothpaste and my full size deodorant as I didn’t have a large one. I decided against packing my shampoo and conditioner even though I typically wash my hair almost everyday as I decided dry shampoo was an essential wether I washed my hair or not for the volume. I also decided to take some John Freida Volume Spray just incase I really wanted to wash my hair and decided to use the hotel shampoo and also sometimes I like to blow dry my hair to add some shape even if I haven’t washed it.
I then picked up the Muji Acrylic stacking pots which turned out to be quite useful but mainly made me fill like a pro-packer. I filled one with body cream, one with face cream, one with foundation and another with This Works In-Transit as it’s a great three in one product as it works as a primer, mask and moisturiser.
Finally my Barry M Concealer, Benefit Speed Brow, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, The Organic Pharmacy Balm cleanser and my Guerlain Petite Robe Noir perfume which I took without the lid as it was bulky and unnecessary.
Everything was prepacked in this clear bag as it means I just have to remove it from my luggage and place to go through security and I don’t have to worry about rummaging through my bags.
As I was travelling for a short period of time packing liquids wasn’t too difficult but I would probably struggle if I was away for more than three days with this limitation. What I do like to do though is split products with a friend and share perfume, shampoo, toothpaste or other products as it really helps save space even on a trip where I can take luggage.
I must admit I did give myself a little tap on the pack for my rather tame packaging this time round, I’ll share my Paris makeup bag soon where I wasn’t quite as controlled.
