When it comes to flying, I used to be a carry-on only type of girl. I would purposefully underpack, carefully planning my trip wardrobe so that I could bypass baggage claim and avoid lugging heavy suitcases around.
However– as we all know –in recent years, this mode of travel has gotten tougher to pull off. I officially gave up on carry-on only when TSA started restricting liquids. I mean, a girl must have her beauty products, and figuring out just how many ounces are okay and in what quantities is just more trouble than it’s worth.
So I was very intrigued by mini kittour’s Just in Case collection of TSA-approved, leak-proof bottles and containers. Since they’re TSA-friendly, they make carry-on only travel a possibility again, and the part that really caught my attention? “LEAK-PROOF!” After all, travel can be rough-and-tumble, and I can’t count the number of times I’ve arrived at my destination only to find that my toiletries spilled mid-trip. As a result, I’ve developed a complicated bagging system, which entails stuffing my suitcase with more zippies than an old lady’s purse. Hardly the chic, sophisticated vibe I like to project when I’m traveling…
So are they truly leak-proof? Well, in my experience, yes. The typical, flip-top caps close completely, and even the trickier pump cap and spray cap have unique locking mechanisms that help them stay put. Plus, all the tops fit the bottles snugly, eliminating under-the-cap leakage. Also, with a variety of sizes and shapes, mini kittour offers something for almost every product. A few of the options:
3.3 ounce/ 100 ml bottles– best suited for shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, makeup remover, nail polish remover, facial cleanser, or moisturizer
Twist ‘n Lock lotion pump
2.7 ounce/ 80 ml bottle– best suited for body wash, mouthwash, cleanser, foundation, moisturizer, or hair styling products
Shown with flip-top pump cap, suitable for hairspray, styling products, or fragrance
1 ounce/ 30 ml jar– best suited for face cream, serum, specialty face products, body scrub, or body butter
1 ounce/ 30 ml bottle– best suited for shampoo, conditioner, cleaners, body wash, or styling products
0.17 ounce/ 5 ml jar– best suited for moisturizer or night cream
Overall, I give this collection a big thumbs up. I am curious as to how they would hold up to multiple uses over a longer period of time, but so far I am a big fan. Each container retails for between $5 and $8, so they’re a reasonable investment for anyone who travels on a semi-regular basis. I’m very comfortable recommending them for any fashionable housewives on the go.
