Travel Tips: How to pack your Toiletries

– Hi, hi, hi. I’m so giddy! Today’s subject is one that I adore, I believe in, I stand by, and I strive to perfect. Toiletries. I love my toiletries. Yes, traveling with
liquids could be an issue, but not if you know the rules. All you have to know is
that each individual bottle can only hold up to 3.4 ounces. And all of those containers have to fit in one quart-sized bag. Now, the key to the perfect toiletry bag is not the bag, it’s the containers in the bag. These are my all-time favorites. They are by a company called Human Gear, I have the subscriptions
below to every container. And the reason I like them is
because they have a wide mouth and that makes it easy to pour in liquids. Avoid funneling at all costs. What is this? So, back to the one I like. It has squeezable material so you can get the last
drop of product out. And, if everything fails, the wide mouth allows you to do the nice good old finger technique. The reason you want to
avoid hard materials is because you can’t
really get the last bit out and then you find yourself
just pushing the bottle to try to get everything out. Another thing you want
to avoid is the corners, I recently found these. They have pretty good attributes, they are malleable, they
have a good wide mouth, but they have corners. So I’m sticking to my
good old round go-to. These I use for shampoo, conditioner, face soap, and body lotion. If you want to add an
extra layer of protection, which I always do, here’s what you use. Masking tape. Simply grab a piece, put
it around your bottle, and voila. Spill-proof and today
they have so many colors. For liquidy liquids, I like spray bottles. They are small, they
economize the amount you use, and they are completely spill-proof. These I use for my toner, my make-up remover, and
my leave-in conditioner. On to jars. These I use for creamier products. Things like face cream, eye cream, even toothpaste. These are pretty cool. You simply pop them open. Done. I haven’t had any spills, but I wouldn’t put any
liquidy liquids in them. These vials are for Q-tips. I need me my Q-tips. And now, cotton pads. I’m still on the hunt
for the perfect container for cotton pads, so if you find one, you tell me. And finally, we have the miscellaneous. And that all goes in a see-through pouch. Simple, washable, easy to carry. All of that goes into my carry-on, I’ve never had a problem with security, this is the same kit I take
whether I’m going to Paris or I’m going surfing, I
always use the same products. Powdered shampoo, no thank you very much. Well, I hope you enjoyed it, and if you like these videos, don’t forget to subscribe above, like this video, comment below. I’m listening. What do you want me to talk about? See you next time. Bye! Hey, don’t leave yet. Don’t forget to subscribe.

  1. I've always been confused about this not sure if it's a dumb question. But do the bottles need to have the measurement on them. Like does the TSA require the bottles have the 3.4 oz label on the bottle

  2. Hi! I just want to ask if the cosmetic bag that is presented in this film is accepted by Ryanair, Wizzair and the rest of the low-cost compnies?

  3. I'm not from the States, I want to ask if the measurement is the same wherever? most of my friends suggested that I bring sachets instead of bottled shampoo and conditioner, it's okay, but I'm worried that I won't be able to bring my other toiletries.

  4. how to pack your luggage when you are going to study abroad ? and should we carry our books in a shoulder bag or we should put them in the luggage?

  5. A lot of very squeezable containers are made of silicone, which can react to ingredients in your toiletries. Be sure to investigate before you buy.

  6. Dear Sonia, is it okay to put razor or epilator in the luggage? Last time I traveled, the security opened my suitcase and didn't find anything. Later on, I thought they checked because of my razor blade was being scanned as suspicious object. So I wonder if it's ok to bring my epilator. Pleaseee give me some advice

  7. hey Sonia I need some help. I'm a guy and it's my first time traveling and I wanna carry hair gel and Idk how to put the gel in a container

  8. Sonia, where are you??? I missed you so much!!! Please make A new Video!! Come back!!!!!!!!

  9. Go Toob leaks (2 out of 3 bottles). It also make the last bit of the product smell and harden. Definitely not worth the price. I emailed Go Toob, they just blamed it on the products I use (saying it consisted of silicon or just not suitable). I followed the masken tape trick, once the bottle leak, it will still spill all over my travel case.

  10. This was a great video, and really helpful! The presentation style is a littleeeee off-putting though. It felt like a school teacher explaining something to a 10 year old. Overly cheery and a bit exaggerated! Sorry, I don't mean this as negative criticism — I still think you've got a lovely channel and would like to see more of course. Just think the presentation style can be worked on. That said, this video is 3 years old… So I shall watch on 🙂

  11. Those Gotoobs are awesome…however, I have found that they can only hold certain products. Definitely TEST the liquids out prior to travel…like a few weeks if possible (so you can get replacements from the manufacturer, they do have a lifetime warranty). Make sure you read the insert/instructions so you aren't putting something in there that could void the warranty also!! Other than that…they are amazing!! I adore them for shampoo, conditioner and body wash!
    Beyond that, I use 5ml. airless pump bottles…those are pretty sweet as well and you get the last drop!

  12. What sizes did you have for the jars? I tried to find again in your video, but couldn't find it..unless it was in your other one haha. There were big ones and small ones…

  13. Hello, what about staying at hostels for FREE? I’d like to know what to ask for, especially since it seems they would want you to work for about 5hrs a day, 5-6 days a week…….. how will I have time to travel? Can you make up your own hours?
    Thanks! Great visualization for the videos you’ve posted.

  14. try this one :

  15. Awesome! Might want to look into reusable cotton pads, it's environment-friendly 🙂 love the tips here, it's more practical than the travel sized products we see in the store!

  16. You might want to buy a soap saver bag (etsy) for your facial rounds. They also have reusable cotton rounds on etsy. Hope that helps.

  17. Alternative: make paper soap with your shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and hand soap, and you can transport the whole bottle of your favorite, without breaking any transport regs. All you need is butter (or rice ) paper, if you want something that completely dissolves. Alternately to that, if you have wipes, you can dry them out and use them instead of the paper. You won’t have something that completely dissolves, but you can dry your soap liquids on them, and have wash clothes that you put in water and already have the soap on them. You can also use an old sheet or old flannel shirt: just cut squares and seal the edges, paint your soap cleaner on both sides, let dry, and fold or roll up and store in a ziplock baggie. A lot of these can take up very little space, little weight, and are easy and fun to use.

  18. Traveling should be absolutely about comfort whether it’s for business or personal. And that’s tough now days due to a lot of hectic ways of booking and all that stuff, especially for the first timers. Then comes More Stamps Global, the way that is going to change the way things work with traveling.

    With providing the system that will not just make traveling simple, secure and easy but also will help you with the cost. Now, you can even book Luxury Hotels through it along with others features. So, this to me is the WAY to travel!

  19. A good thing to store cotton rounds is the small flat Qtip container or smallest ziploc baggie..i know im years late just saw ur cute video,thanks lol

  20. How can I pack oils?
    I’ve have been looking for ideas on how to pack coconut oil. I can’t live without it my face literally bleeds from dryness if I don’t put it on once a day-no joke

  21. I have short straight thin hair and I use a mousse to give my hair some volume. I have no idea how to travel with the mouse bottle. Do you have some travel size bottles I can use a mousse in?

  22. Dear Sonia…. you are missed dearly . Please be safe and return when it's right for you…. love & prayers for you, your family, and your country of Venezuela !!!! ❤

  23. Spent an hour researching on amazon… then found this jewel which answered all my questions. Thank you!!!

  24. Hi I’ll be traveling to Paris and I got myself some of those silicone containers. My question I’ll be purchasing some other liquid makeup and skincare that won’t necessarily be 3oz what do you suggest for my carry on I won’t have any bags to check because I’ll be connecting and don’t need any extra delays
