Leave the Liquids at Home

Leave that shaving cream at home and have one less liquid to add to your TSA bag of approved 3-oz or less items. Here’s what to use instead: hair conditioner supplied by the hotel, or a light layer of soap. Either work well and I haven’t had a nick in years. I also use a razor that has a moisturizing strip on it. Gillette offers both the Venus Embrace Razor and the Venus Breeze 2 in 1. Moisture strips and built-in shave gel bars give a smooth shave without the nicks and last for several weeks before needing the razor head replaced. The Gillette Venus Spa Breeze is a disposable razor, also with the shave gel bars.

I’m always looking for ways to reduce what’s in my luggage and especially my bag of liquids. This is one way to keep the weight down without any downsides from not having my entire bathroom cabinet along with me.

For a spa-like feeling on your legs, mix in a few packets of raw sugar (brown packets available from any coffee shop or restaurant) into the hair conditioner or body lotion. Rub this over your legs for a dry-skin removing treatment that feels great!
