Beauty Byte: A Mini Market For Travelers

It appears as though the beauty industry is experiencing mini mania! Companies such as Biotherm, L'Oreal, Lancome, Laura Mercier, Jonathan, Skyn, and Tom Robinn have manufactured and launched mini-sized beauty products to conveniently help abide the new airplane travel laws. Even Sephora is now selling miniature products.

Just so you know, the rules are as follows: all liquids that are allowable on airplanes must be in 100-ml. or smaller bottles and transported in re-sealable plastic bags. This rule has been in effect since August 2006.

If beauty companies want to continue to be successful, then they must change with the times and the laws. People are not going to spend money on full sized products, just to have them thrown in the trash. More companies now than ever are also beginning to pay attention to the needs of men.

Creations such as Day Tripper Shaving Sets encased in clear plastic packaging by Biotherm Homme have become best sellers. Companies are using this big opportunity to create small packaging by offering small bottles with purchase alongside full size products for travel purposes. Happy travels!

The size limit is only on hand luggage isn't it? But even so what kind of small clear bag are they supposed to be kept it, I have no idea what I'm looking for or where to get one in the UK.

Fantastic. Anything to make the process of air travel easier these days is a good thing.

Cute! It's a great idea and people WILL pay extra for the convienience (spell check isn't working for me).

Question about this... do the rules about bottles of liquid apply to carry-on bags only or to all bags, even if they're in the cargo hold of the plane?

Brilliant! Companies are getting smart to customize their products and tailor to the new demands on traveling. What use to be sample sizes are now the perfect amount for carry on travel.
