We’ve all been there: caught short at the conveyor belt, watching helplessly as your favourite fragrance or can’t-live-without-it cleanser are mercilessly confiscated by airport security. Yes the measures are in place with good reason and we all know the clear poly bag drill by now, but in the frantic run up to a trip abroad it’s easy to let a product or two slip through the net, then pay the price. If this has never happened to you, well done – you’re a savvier traveler than I. If it has, never again!
