There is a collective sigh of relief for us female travelers. Our mascara is no longer considered a bomb threat!
Today is the first day of the mini-size movement in air travel. Yesterday, the Transportation Safety Administration announced that liquids, gels and creams were allowed on board an aircraft. As long travelers adhere to the latest guidelines and put these toiletries in a quart (8" x 7.5") size zip-top bag they should have no problem.

Some toiletries are easy to buy in the small size but the costly shampoos, gels, and face creams may not be as easy to find. Ask at your cosmetic counter for travel size products.
It's time to shop - not only for mini-size toiletries but I'm off to purchase stock in a company who makes zip-lock bags! Safe travels.
