I have to admit that I really have a thing for products specifically designed for travel. I mean, anything, from airline meals (I just love the way that everything is so efficiently packaged) to those clever, curved pillows made for travel sleeping (zzzzzz). But for me, the holy grail of travel products is travel toiletries. You will find me lingering in drugstore aisles, jealously eyeing those bins of travel-size items: shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers, tiny tubes of toothpaste. It’s an endless array of mini size personal care.
The problem is that I am never really sure which of these items are actually TSA-compliant. Rightly or wrongly, I have this fear that every airline has its own set of rules for what sort of toiletries you can take on board, and then this is layered by what TSA says or the caprice of security gate agents. Do they allow aerosols on board these days or don’t they? How many ounces of liquids am I allowed? What about gels? Is toothpaste a liquid or a gel? Or neither? Do I need the clear, resealable baggie, or not? Argh!
Fortunately, the folks at Convenience Kits International have taken the guesswork out of what you can take on board and what you can’t. They have developed a special line ofTSA-compliant travel kits that you can customize to your special personal care desires.
I mean, does it really get any better? No more worrying that you will be bodily searched and detained at the security gate because you forgot to remove your toiletry kit from your carry-on bag. No more trying to figure out how you are going to smuggle your favorite shampoo onto the plane. It’s a whole new, stress-free travel world.
Of course, your main worry, now that TSA is out of the picture, is exactly how you are going to put your custom travel kit together. Fret no more. Below are some recipes for ways to mix and match your custom travel kit, depending on your mood, style, and gender:
Want to look your best, from your carefully coordinated outfit down to your luggage and toiletry kit? Pair either Chanel-inspired Bag E (a chic quilted black bag) or Missoni-reminiscent Bag J (with its signature zig-zag pattern), with Tresemme shampoo and conditioner, Crest 3D White toothpaste, Pure Silk shaving cream, a pink disposable twin-blade razor, Secret deodorant, facial wipes, a vanity pack with cotton balls and swabs, nail file, and a folding brush and mirror. This is a kit that will lookgood on you.
Nobody loves hassle-free convenience more than your average male. The less fuss, the better. And getting through TSA with personal care in hand is about as easy as it gets. For a toiletry kit for real men, start with the manly Bag F, a deluxe bag made from black ballistic nylon. Add in Freshscent combined shampoo and body bath along with Freshscent conditioner. Throw in Freshmint alcohol-free mouthwash and toothpaste, and a Colgate toothbrush. Finish packing with the Gillette Mach 3 razor, Edge shaving gel, Degree for Men deodorant, and a basic black unbreakable pocket comb. It’s a custom travel kitsuited for the man on the go, for sure.
We all know someone like this: eminently practical and all about efficiency. Never one to follow trends or fashions, this soul is 100% pure and simple living. Here’s how to outfit the minimalist. Start with Bag B, a clear vinyl zippered pouch. Add in Pert Plus 2-in-1 Shampoo+Conditioner, a soft bristle toothbrush, dental floss, Olay Body Wash, Johnson Baby Powder, a blue disposable twin-blade razor, Dove deodorant, a small styling comb, and tissues. This kit is about assimply practical as it gets.
