What’s in my beauty cabin baggage?

Between Tuesday and Thursday, you might have noticed that the Cruelty-Free Malta facebook page was quiet. That’s because I was away for a quick business trip to Karlsruhe, Germany. Unfortunately, my schedule was too tight that I didn’t have time for any sightseeing. However I might visit Karlsruhe again soon so I might have time to get to know the city better and maybe blog about it 🙂

Due to it being a quick visit, I had decided to just carry a small hand luggage with me. Since I didn’t have time for shopping, carrying just a small hand luggage was the best idea. It was also the first time I did it and I was worried on which beauty products to carry with me since there are restrictions on liquids inside hand luggages:

Since 6 November 2006 there is a common regulation for cabin baggage restrictions in extended European Union (including Switzerland, Norway and Iceland).
  • Restrictions on liquids:
    • only liquids with max 100 ml per piece
    • all pieces assembled in a single zippable plastic bag of max 1000ml (1 liter)
    • the plastic resealable bag must not exceed 20 cm by 20 cm
    • maximum of 1 plastic bag per passenger
    • liquids include gels and lotions (shampoo, tooth paste), lip sticks, moist paper tissue, contact lens solution
    • Exceptions:
      • prescribed medicine of any size (non-prescribed medicine-only items allowed well)
      • baby milk and other items for infants
      • nutrition for diabetes diet

In the end I managed to carry liquid free products, which I will be listing now:

Tell me, what else would you add in your travel beauty hand luggage?
