Carry On Luggage Essentials

carry on luggage

When I travel I keep a few small cosmetics cases filled with different things.  For example, I store chargers and memory cards in an old Clinique case, my homemade first aid kit in a different makeup bag, and my carry-on liquids in a third.  While I don’t have any hard and fast rules for what I pack in my carry on luggage, I snapped a picture of the things I brought on my last flight.  My essentials included:

  • Gloves in a Bottle hand lotion
  • Maybelline Baby Lips
  • Hand sanitizer.  The ones I packed were strongly scented; if you’re planning to clean your hands in an enclosed space like an airplane or train carriage make sure you choose one that is unscented!
  • A small bottle of perfume (Victor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb, this time)
  • A few random lip balms, glosses and lipsticks.
  • A “body fresh” wipe.  Normally I use just regular baby wipes or travel wipes, but I was out so I tossed in this sample.  I didn’t end up trying it.
