Now that you know what you want to bring, you’ll need to check the requirements for your airline if you are flying. Most airlines want your liquids or gels in a 3 oz. container or less and all liquids or gels together should fit in a quart sized Ziplock bag. Lots of people think that lotions or creams are not included in this, but they are. Even if your container is half full, we still recommend transferring your product to an empty bottle so that you don’t have to hand it over to airline employees. Seriously, there’s nothing sadder than giving up half full bottle of Chanel perfume to the TSA.
