Work is sending me on a long course far, far away.. so I figured I should be ready if I found a nice restroom during my almost eight hour layover (my job buys the cheapest tickets):

From the left: A sample-sized cologne, a sample-sized face moisturiser, one of my old BodyShop Synthetics, a disposable BiC Sensitive, what is left of my Lea shave stick, and a sample-sized Lea after-shave balsam (already half used up) - all packed in a see through plastic  toiletry bag, ready to be checked by security at the airport.

As with GRAVITY, it is not just a cool idea; it’s THE LAW.  (United States TSA regulations require that all liquids and pastes that a passenger carries into a commercial airplane cabin be inside one clear plastic bag of no larger than one quart/one liter capacity.)

Damm! Thanx tons! I travel next week and was planing to bring along a not transparent tote bag. I would have lost my kit.

I have participated in quite a few travel and shave threads and this fact was never commented about or upon. Now i owe you a travel kit! Jajaja. Just kiddin!

The best for you guys!

The solution would be to place all liquids - in containers no larger than 100ml capability - in a transparent zip-licked bag and take that bag out of your kit when you pass through the security check point. Some places they are rather strict about the 100ml limits, so make sure none of your liquids are in larger tubes/bottles/jars for anything in your carry-on

This is very true...it does not matter how much is actually in the container. It is the size of the container they will focus on. A friend lost a tub on TOBS on a domestic flight because the tub was 150ml (or something like that) even though, there was maybe 30ml left in there.

Have a great trip! I use a slightly more rectangular version that I find easier to load/zip shut:

Not sure where you're flying but 8 hours is probably enough to leave the airport and see something local. If you're staying in the airport check Lounge buddy (dot com) they sell day passes to some airport lounges. Find one with showers for a good chance at a private toilet/sink too.

This has been somewhat relaxed of late. I have not removed toiletries from carry on in the US or EU in five years and have never been asked to do so. I have 2 - 4 flights every week and am not TSA pre for most of them. Certainly no need to get a special bag. YMMV

I didn't have to take it out of the bag, but the signs stated I should be prepared to do so if asked.
