If you buy beauty products, you’ll often get a plethora of sample beauty products along with your purchase: shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers, SPF, concealers, foundations, etc. There are samples for guys too – I’ve seen samples for shaving cream, lotions, and facial cleansers just to name a few. Save these samples and pack ’em in your toiletries in place of the normal “travel sized” toiletries you pack. I’ve always kept a few sample packets in my toiletries bag and they’ve also come in handy when I’ve run out of a toiletry staple. As a bonus, sample packets never get flagged during security screenings so you’ve just created room to pack more liquids, if need be!
