    Most of the products I use only come in full sizes so I just have to decant them anyway!

    If I traveled often I would probably invest in the silicone bottles, but I rarely travel by plane.

    I am Australian so as you know everything is exy. I cheated picked up the travel size on sale and have been refilling them for about 4 years now :) Hair spray is the only travel size i buy

    I usually fly to 4-6 different cities on a single trip. I take my own product in smaller refillable containers for the first leg. Then if I run out, and the Airbnb I’m staying at doesn’t have product, I’ll buy full size product, use it while I’m in said city, and refill my smaller bottles before I fly again. I’ll leave what’s left of the big bottles behind in the Airbnb for the next guest. If I’m going to spend $1.50 on either a large or small bottle, I might as well get more product to share with others. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Also, those mini toiletries are heavy because the bottles are bulky. Refillable bottles from Daiso are much lighter.

    I go to a dollar store and buy the little empty containers and fill them up from the bigger mama containers.. or I just buy toiletries once I arrive and avoid it all together

  • Away To Anywhere
    Away To Anywhere 8 months ago

    I haven’t read all the comments here, but I save some of the miniature shampoo I have collected in hotels over the past years.
    Then I refill them with cheap/favorite/on sale shampoo, when needed. Some miniature bottles are better than others. I think the oldest bottle is around 6 years. The writing on the front is all worn out, but I did pick it up in Milan at one point...

    something that's always confused me though- how do you refill your bottles while you're traveling? You can't exactly buy a full bottle and use it to refill if you're flying carry-on only.

  • Erin H

    I'm so guilty of buying these, but I don't really travel enough to notice the price difference! I won't anymore, I'm pretty frugal and I'll decant from now on! Thanks for this video. But it makes sense, people are paying for the packaging only when they buy that size.

  • 26Bluegb

    I couldn't bring myself to buy for jobs (plus silicone interacts badly with some stuff),so I bought a couple of travel sized band sanitizers, used them, cleaned them, and refilled with my leave in conditioner. They fit in the quart sized bag really well, since they don't come to a point.

    And that's why I always travel with solid soaps, shampoos, tooth tabs(solid toothpaste tabs and mouthwash) etc. Almost everything that is available in liquid is available in solid form!! Or hey, you can get the toothpaste at your destination!! I hate worrying about liquid allowances so I just avoid it!!

    I've never used these in my entire life (after 18 years being a manager at Tesco and seeing people buy them daily). I just use normal toiletries and chuck em in my check in luggage. I only take a small Vaseline in my carry on (which has been in my possession for the entire 2 years of my current travels LOL (SURVIVOR!). For long flights I just deal with it and generally just feel like hell with dry skin. A few months ago going from Phuket to Beijing to Mexico City I just took a small toothpaste from 7/11 to freshen up. Crazy how expensive these are!

  • Rebecca Lockley
    Rebecca Lockley 9 months ago

    I do a combination to be honest. And I use a lot of samples, too.
    We also often buy things at our destination in the larger sizes even if we'll be abandoning them due to it being cheaper.

    I always wonder how is it that we are not allowed on flight with certain cosmetic products n stuff of particular sizes but if we buy from duty free stores then then we are allowed? Is it a business strategy or something?...dont know...in fragrances though it's always better to buy bigger bottles for sure...

    I've done and do both. Which way I go seems to depend on the trip (no rhyme or reason) and my mood/frame of mind. I've also bought the travel size of a product and refilled those and I've tossed the almost done full size toothpaste or whatever in to my suitcase. The travel sizes of products are convenience and it's that convenience of not having to get travel size bottles, decant and label that you're paying the premium for. I like to use the products that I use at home when I travel and since most of them don't come in travel sizes I tend to decant. However, having said that I will say that I have yet to find travel size containers that I like and I've had both cheap and expensive ones. For me the benefit other than the convenience of buying the travel size version of a product is that you tend to get a smaller version of the container you have in your bathroom which is nice.

  • ahundredmillionstars
    ahundredmillionstars 9 months ago

    Omg, this is so true, I check out the travel size aisle and it's ridiculous amount to pay for something that in three squirts is then empty! You're so right and I also find it unfair how here in UK we get average to small sized toiletries where as travelling in different countries the bottles etc are always bigger! When I was in a Aussie supermarket I thought why don't we get the choice to buy larger items too here in England. Do you find that too where you travel to, that the toiletries are larger?

    About bloody time someone pointed this out- not only are the prices insane but it’s just more plastic waste! Miniatures are a total gimmick and as a girl with long hair - unless I’m going away for just 2 days, what use is 100ml of shampoo anyway! I just pack normal size! Lol 😂 Awesome little hack video Aly! 👍

    I've done a pretty smart "hack" .... buying a 25ml sized deodorant, when it's empty I just buy a 50ml sized one, open it up and fill up the 25ml deodorant, so I save some space... but I travel super minimalistic and I travel with a 22L backpack :)

  • Amy Proctor

    I was so distracted by your gorgeous nails... love the black!
    I agree it's a marketing scam but what people have to decide is if they need that much product (shampoo/conditioner+body wash+toothpaste+hairspray) and if they want to carry it onto a plane, and if the extra weight is worth it.
    I went to NZ for a month last year and brought all the full-sized items because I knew I'd use that much. Some things I bought in NZ because the weight was too much. Most of this stuff you should put in cargo and not take as carry on.
    Now I had to lug two heavy suitcases around but they got lighter as time went by because I used the things I brought. It was a PAIN, but I ended up losing weight from the workout of lugging it through airports and into hotels!
    At the end of the day, I'm a believer in traveling light (I've learned the hard way) and I leave behind that 4th heavy coat or 3rd pair of hiking shoes the weight from bringing full shampoo is offset. So it all works out.

  • ShaniceThroughTheLens
    ShaniceThroughTheLens 9 months ago +1

    Oh and I also recently discovered about the toothpaste just before I went to Barcelona! I was going to buy a mini one because I thought the big ones were too big and was like how the hell do you decant those?! Then realised that the toothpaste we always buy is small enough so job done!

  • ShaniceThroughTheLens
    ShaniceThroughTheLens 9 months ago

    I came to this conclusion before I went to Belfast haha! I was going to buy the mini travel bottles because I agree they are so cute BUT then I noticed it was going to cost us much less to buy the empty plastic bottles and fill them with our shower gel that we already had in our bathroom! So that's what we did.

    Happy travelversary lustrum on the 19th. That's a milestone.
    I used to be guilty of buying the travel size toiletries, but with the exception of toothpaste I now decant into smaller containers and only what I'll use. I use either small bottles or contact lens cases for my liquids. Toothpaste I'll get travel size only because my 75ml won't fit into my 1L bag. Don't ask what I pack in there 😳

  • Janelle Jordan
    Janelle Jordan 9 months ago +1

    You are so right. In my recent trip with Ryan Air (first time btw) i bought alot of travel size products thinking nothing of it only to be faced with having to fit everything in 1 plastic bag....and there was only so much travel size that can fit in their ziplock bag.....Lets just say....some things were thrown away only to be bought again in duty free....like why!!!??? But yes good tip. Will definitely note next time

  • Hey Lauryn
    Hey Lauryn 9 months ago

    I agree, it can be a rip off. Though one nice thing about travel size is that you're able to try some products and not waste as much of you don't like for whatever reason. I'm cool paying a little bit more sometimes for then convience of not being as wasteful with a product.

    • Bradley B
      Bradley B 9 months ago

      Hey Lauryn you’re wasting less of the product, but when people buy the smaller versions it actually creates more waste from the packaging.

    The only things I've ever purchased travel size was bug spray for when I went to Costa Rica, aloe vera so I would have a container to use without it messing up any other container, and if I want yo try something but don't want to commit to a bigger bottle. It really is ridiculous how much those cost even in the USA.

  • TeedottJay
    TeedottJay 9 months ago

    Thanks for the informative video :) I feel like to make this better you should have bought all the products people usually take on a holiday (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, toothpaste etc.) and done a side by side comparison of how much it costs in total to buy the travel versions, versus buying the empty containers to decant into and working out the cost of the amount of product to fill them, to show how much money this actually equates to, if that makes sense. Still enjoyed this though!

      Sometimes I buy smaller bottles because I like the size and shape of them. Sometimes bottles can be big and bulky for what I need them for. But if I find a slim bottle thats rectangular and not too big for what I need it for, I’ll buy it so I can have the bottle to refill the next time.

    Baggage fees are the real scam. Which is why I always make sure one bag is included if my ticket.
    But when I went on a trip last year, I was gone for a month and I have skin issues so I had to take a months worth of special shampoo. Your bet I abused that 1 included checked bag. As for Colgate, that's sold pretty much everywhere, I even found it when I was in Poland.

    Solid forms of toiletries are the way forward for not only travel but LIFE!
    You can get all sorts in soles and it won't count towards liquids on the plane
    Reduces a hell of a lot of plastic too
    Can be cheaper (can even make it yourself)

    Veronica Vatter 9 months ago +1

    I used the little bottles from Mio squirty water drops. And they don't drip. And to be honest, unless you are traveling for weeks or washing your hair three times a day, you aren't going to go thru 100mil of shampoo. Also you can you those sample packets of toiletries. One of shampoo lasts for 2-3 washes if you don't have super long hair. And you can fit a ton of those in your bag

    Probably the only product I could think of that you are more or less required to buy in “travel size” is shaving foam. Anything else usually comes way cheaper even after adding the price of travel-size refillable bottles. And the packing becomes easier too: you just need to refill the bottles with stuff you already have and use

    • Angelica Pickles
      Angelica Pickles 5 months ago

      Those cans are so big and bulky. I just use body wash to shave or end up buying regular size once I get to my destination.

    • Ellie Cowell

    • 21CenturyLops
      21CenturyLops 9 months ago

      Agreed, my only counter argument would be that this way by the time you leave you are left with a lot of product you are not going to use, nor take along and are then forced to throw away. :)

      I bought the little tube once - when it ran out, I got a syringe from the pharmacy, took the needle off, filled the syringe from the big toothpaste tube (from the back, not the little opening in front) and then replaced the plunger and emptied it into the little tube. Repeated this until the little tube was full again.
      once a year, when the little tube is emptied, I put it in a large jug of water for a day or two to make sure the toothpaste remnants are washed out, then air dry it, and use again.
      You can also put toothpaste into a small pot and then dip the bristles of your toothbrush into the paste and use it as usual.

    As to your question hm it depends I actually use travel to bring home new cool products in the Big luggage ( yes Ikea does recyclable mainly sugarcane plastic ziplock bags - they are excellent and yes im swedish - git a problem with that ?) And that becomes a travel memory because I will smell it and be like ahhh I remember When ( also I carry a tape thing to tape bottles shut ) I Will go for a smaller size if its something ive never used before and want to try it ? Yes ! Never for products I use like always though ! Actually realise My travel habits consists of two completely opposite ones 1) extreme minimalist with Cabin luggage and 2) the HAUL thinly disguised as longer vacation trip where I basically bring the clothes from the cabin luggage and go ape buying stuff including decor Ps check out before you do that the country does not have Anything nasty like termites or get stuff which is None insecty ds

    I have always put shampoo and conditioner in a smaller container to take with me when I go away. However, last time I was going away I found my brand of shampoo, conditioner and a body moisturiser travel size. I was so excited I brought it and took it on my last trip. Sucked in or what!!!!!! I am such a sucker for small cute stuff.
    I now have the nice silicone refillable containers and they work much better than the travel sized bottles, and I am sure more economical in the future.
    Great VLog Ally 😊

      It's so easy because I find the miniature ones so damn cute. But we must stay strong haha!

    I know they are WAY more expensive but I still buy them.
    They don't make miniature version of products I normally use so I use these products while travelling.
    I know I can just buy small bottles and put it in there but that's just too much hassle and I usually buy my toiletries at the airport so playing with small bottles at the airport wouldn't be very convenient. (I only travel with my backpack so can't take the full size products).
    Thumbs up for the video 👍

    Yeeeees ! I was first .....so coooool! And yes I agree so much! Though as someone who has Done marketing the largest cost in production is actually the packaging even more for minatures but it doesnt justify that much of the cost - they are actually used primarily as a marketing ploy to get people to pay extra for trying something! Also its bloody horrendous for the environment if you use it for your normal toilettries just decant into the refillable ones you buy at the pharmacy or pound store!
