For those who travel: the 3 oz. rule

About to head out on my own trip, this latest find is particularly timely. As I set up my bathroom “lab” to squeeze shampoo, conditioner and various lotions and creams into the hodge podge of little plastic travel containers I’ve amassed, this company seems a more sane solution: 3floz.com

The site is dedicated to offering TSA-approved bottles of popular products from cult brands.  3floz.com is the brainchild of two pals – Alexi and Kate — who are frequent travel companions in need of simplified travel preparation and a desire to remain lathered and moisturized in style.

3floz.com carries only Alexi and Kate’s favorite brands. But what a selection! And, they also offer product choices for babies and men so if you are toting extra baggage (read: family), there are options for the whole crew. The motto on the website says it all: For those who travel, those who are curious and those who can’t commit.  I’m sure you know who you are.

What’s on the menu? Among more than 40 brands, the selection includes Dr. Hauschka, Go Smile, Jack Black, Molton Brown, Tocca and Ole Henriksen. Organic products also have a presence.

3floz.com will ship to the hotel at your destination for those who couldn’t be bothered with lugging even 3 oz bottles. Best of all, if you’re down to the line (all you overworked, stressed-types that really need this vacay) and haven’t planned ahead, the duo has your back. If your flight departs less than 72 hours, shipping will be upgraded to overnight at no cost.

Service with airlines may have suffered but with a little effort, you don’t have to.
