Small, transparent plastic bottles that can carry a few ounces of liquid, such as shampoo, conditioner, or body wash, are the most common travel bottles. Most feature basic twist-off or snap-off caps, but they're built to last, such as when luggage is reserved on an aircraft.
Travel cosmetic jars are also available for goods such as medication or vitamins. These may have childproof lids or easier-to-remove lids for persons who have problems with twist-off tops. It is, however, preferable to maintain pharmaceuticals in their original packets, together with any appropriate prescriptions, when traveling internationally. It's also crucial to avoid mixing different types of pills in the same container.
Though all of these different types of travel bottles can be purchased separately, they can also be purchased as kits that include various bottles in various sizes and shapes.
What should you look for in small reusable containers now that there are so many options?
Arguably, the most crucial feature any travel bottle manufacturer can boast about a good travel bottle is that it's leak-proof. (There's nothing like opening your suitcase or hiking backpack to find shampoo all over your best toiletries bag to ruin a trip). However, the bottles must be within your budget, compact enough to fit in your carry-on luggage, and available in a variety of sizes and types — think empty spray bottles and tiny jars for creams — to allow for enough product storage.
