Allura Travel Bottle Set, £1 @ Poundland
Within our bathroom there stands a cupboard and in this sits a lot of stuff. Every time I’m off on my travels this is the notorious stash I invade and this time I came across the Allura Travel Bottle Set, only £1 from, yes, Poundland.
1 x 100ml pump bottle (add perfume, mouthwash)
3 x 100ml pop cap bottle (add shampoo, conditioner, moisturiser)
All stored in a clear (transparent) travel case
They’re the size of aeroplane guidelines and the casing allows you to follow the rules to showcase what you’re taking onboard through check in.
I’ve often questioned whether these bottles are worth the hassle of distributing a bit of shampoo into these 100ml bottles, or if it’s simply more straight forward to purchase the mini-travel products that are now so popular. I suppose the big deal here is time and effort.
Who, When, Why?
If I was an avid weekend traveller the cost of buying the mini-travel versions may well add up, so to save a bit of money perhaps it’s best to give a bit of time and decant into these handy bottles. What do you reckon?
I am yet to utilise these travel bottles, but they’re not expensive and there’s potential for great travel product here.

The sleeping eye mask has often seemed like a waste of time and it is not until you experience a sleepless journey that you find a secret love for this tiny piece of cloth.
Now I would swear by them and feel sorry for anyone that has to deal with those glaring TV screens on bus journeys or natural light peeping in through those mini-aeroplane windows. There’s only one solution (other than sunshades) and that is the sleeping eye mask.
A friend of mine has decided to re-design her own, which is pretty cool, but for those of you who aren’t quiet as crafty (like me) just pack the squash-able mask into your carry on and enjoy a good snooze! They’re often handed out for free during flight.
Flight 001 have recently come on my radar and though there products can be expensive, they are very groovy. Here are some inspirational designs if you want to look slightly less boring while you sleep. The following products ranging from £14.00, eek!
