Face care, shower gel, shampoo, body lotion, hand cream, make-up – the list of everyday cosmetic products is long. So that personal hygiene can be carried out as usual on vacation, it is worth making a checklist before the trip. Will the cosmetics last for the next two weeks or are the bottles almost empty? Which hygiene items do I need for the holiday? Do I have sunscreen with a sufficient sun protection factor? There should be a few working days between the checklist and your departure so that you can quickly buy what is missing. Many manufacturers offer their products in travel sets and small sizes for on the go. Because the weight of the large bottles and jars for everyday use adds up. In addition, the space in the case can be used more sensibly.

Travel set to fill

Carrying suitcases can be quite tiring when traveling. Every gram saved makes luggage transport easier. If your favorite products aren’t available in travel sizes, simply buy empty cosmetic bottles filled with shower gel, shampoo and creams. Travel-size bottles have the additional advantage that you can take small amounts of shampoo and shower gel with you on the plane in your hand luggage. However, be careful not to exceed the liquid limit. A single bottle may contain a maximum of 100 ml.

Pack minimalistically: shower gel in one piece from Lavera

Backpackers and adventure holidaymakers need to pack their backpacks in a minimalist way. Instead of taking the entire cosmetics cabinet with you, it is reduced to the bare essentials. Solid 2-in-1 bars of soap for showering and washing hair have other advantages in addition to saving packaging waste: They are small, light and do not leak. In addition, the backpack can be taken into the cabin as hand luggage without liquids – provided it complies with the airline’s guidelines. Solid body care products are therefore a good tip for anyone who is only planning a short trip or who wants to save the additional costs of checking in their luggage.

Nitro hanging cosmetic travel bag

Who doesn’t know this: In the bathroom of the hotel there is far too little storage space for cosmetic products. Water often runs out of the shower, which is why the floor is an unsuitable place for the toiletry bag. For such occasions, hanging cosmetic bags are a welcome invention. The bag is simply hung on a hook or the door and folded out. Cosmetics and toiletries are neatly stowed away in the individual compartments. This saves space in the bathroom and time when looking for the products.
