I honestly only find myself flying during the Summer time, however I do go on a lot of road trips and have weekend getaways throughout the year, so I thought it was necessary for me find find the perfect refillable travel kit for that purpose. I know you can find these refillable, TSA approved bottles at any drugstore, but I wanted something that looked and felt a little more luxe. When I saw this Deluxe Airless Travel Kit at my local Sephora I could not take my eyes off of it and I thought that they were perfect for any weekend getaway, sleepover, or flight because they are TSA approved.
The kit comes with the following:
- Two 1.69oz airless pump tubes
- Two 1.01oz airless pump tubes
- 0.51oz airless pump tube
- Two 0.51oz jar
- Push stick for product filling
- Spatula for product filling
- Waterproof pre-printed labels
- Clear Cosmetic Bag
The set is extremely sleek and the airless pump tubes and jars help keep your products clean and fresh. The refillable air tight tubes are very easy to refill and are perfect for your shampoos, conditioners, cleansers, toners, etc. They are easy to rinse and clean after every use and they are built for travel because after a few trips with them already they have not leaked or cracked.
There were a few bad reviews online about the product saying that the airless pump tubes could not dispense thicker liquids, such as shampoos and conditioners. However, there is a method of filling them up that will allow them to pump out the thicker liquids better.
**TIPS ON FILLING AIR TIGHT TUBES**
Take whichever size tube you would like to fill up with your shampoo and fill it all the way to the top with water first. Then place the pump on the tube and pump out all of the water. This is necessary because these air tight tubes use a little push lever on the bottom to push the product up (instead of a little hose like most squirt bottles). So when you pump out all of the water, that lever reaches the top. Then, with the lever still at the top, fill the tube with your shampoo (or whatever product you'd like), and you will see the lever start to fall tot he bottom as you are filling the tube up with your product again. This makes sure that there are no air bubbles, which makes it easier for thicker liquids to be dispensed through the tube.
What I love even more is that the clear cosmetic bag is the perfect, TSA approved, travel bag to store all of your liquid, gel, and aerosol products. It can be used over and over again, and the amount of liquid, gel, and aerosol products that you can squeeze into it for a flight is incredible!
Overall, these tubes do work and I am in love with them! They look so nice lined up on any vanity and really help keep my products organized (especially with the waterproof labels) while I am staying at different locations.
