I’m preparing for my flight to Chicago tomorrow morn. I figured I’d check the TSA guidelines so that my precious (expensive) toiletries don’t get poached from me.
So, I go to the TSA regulations site. It’s really cute, it’s called “TSA: What to Know Before You Go”. See? Cute! It rhymes.

- All creams and lotions
- Bug and mosquito sprays and repellents
- Eyelash Curlers
- Hair styling gels and spray
- Liquid foundations
- Liquid mascara
- Shampoos and conditioners
