Airline Accepted Essentials

By  June 15, 2009

As the weather heats up and you get time off work (hopefully!) It’s the perfect opportunity to take that vacation that you’ve been dreaming of all winter long. However, when packing your all your favorite necessities, you better keep in mind the new airline regulations for all your cosmetics!

When bringing cosmetics as carry-on, all your bottles must be below 3.0 ounces and must all be put into one clear, quart-sized Ziploc bag. (We all know what happens if you break these rules; you have to kiss your favorite oversize shampoo goodbye!)

Luckily we’ve helped with the packing process a bit and picked out some of our favorite products to bring along on trips. Happy Travels!


1. Ojon, Hydrating & Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, $9 (each)
This great shampoo/conditioner set comes in small 2.0 ounce bottles and is the perfect amount for a long weekend away. When used together, the product rejuvenates your hair and leaves you with a ton of bounce and shine.

2. Colgate, Wisp Mini-Brush with Freshening Bead, $2.59
These mini-toothbrushes come in packs of 2 and don’t require water or rinsing to brush your teeth. They are perfect for times when you need to freshen up in a jiffy.

3. Emilio Pucci, Vivara Rollerball, $25
This great scent is now available in this tiny 0.3 ounce roll on stick so that you can wear it wherever you go!

4. Fresh, Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15, $22.50
This definitely leaves your lips sweet and soft. It’s made with real sugar and blended with hydrating oils that repair your lips while protecting them from the sun.

5. Clinique, Take the Day Off To Go, $8.50
At only 1.9 ounces, this little bottle of truly potent eye makeup remover can work wonders. It gets off the toughest of makeup including waterproof mascara.

The perfect trifecta of all things beauty. It includes a powder bronzer, a gel cheek stain, and a glossy lip shine all in a cute little compact case.

7. MD Skincare, EZ4U 4-in-1 Facial Treatment, $35
A great all in one face treatment. There is no water necessary and this little wipe cleans, moisturizes, balances, and treats facial blemishes. Gotta love convenient packaging!
