BYOT (Bring your own toiletries)–when we can travel again
Knowing how important it is for a frequent jet-setter to travel smart, while staying stylish, TIC Design has designed a line of products that provide just that experience.
The company has launched two product lines since founding in 2016: the TIC Travel Bottles V2.0 (which has a ‘Skin’ and ‘Shower’ version) and recently, the TIC Oral Care & Razor Kit. Aside from the convenience of having all your toiletries in one place, the products are also designed to eliminate single-use toiletries, reducing the environmental impact of travel.
The TIC Travel Bottles V2.0 comes in two colors: ‘Matte Black’ and ‘Matte White.’ For the Skin Bottle V2.0, it has two layers, with the upper layer taking up most of the capacity. It consists of three sections to contain your toner, lotion, makeup remover, which you can dispense by rotating the section to the front and pressing down.
These sections also come in different sizes, so you can mix and match to create the perfect toiletries combination for yourself. The lower layer consists of four small jars, which can be used for face creams, serums, toners, or whatever else you want to bring.
When I first received the Bottle, I was impressed by its sophisticated design. Beyond the aesthetics, it’s very high-quality and feels like it can take the demands of travel. Each container holds less than 100 ml of liquid, so you can easily throw it into your carry-on luggage. I also haven’t experienced any leaking.
All in all, the Bottle is a great way to bring everything you need in an organized way while saving space in your luggage. Once you’ve arrived at your destination, packaging and unpacking your toiletries is also a breeze.
As a single lady, I usually just throw a few beauty samples into my bag to make things easy. For this reason, I would probably not take the Bottle with me on short trips, especially as it can be a bit heavy on its own. But for frequent travelers, families, or those who can’t be without their stapes, the TIC Travel Bottles V2.0 is the way to go.–CC
