Who buys travel toiletries?

I was in Sainsburys earlier and just happened to look at the small travel toiletries, which I expected to be more expensive than the standard sized items, but they were significantly more expensive and frankly a rip off.

For instance looking at the lynx travel shower gel it works out over 5 times more expensive than the standard size per 100ml.

The travel toothpaste is 4 times the price of the standard ones.

We just bring toothpaste to the airport hotel with some left at end and shower gel with some left near the end.

People must be mad to buy travel toiletries:

I agree, looked at all the travel toiletries and went to savers and bought big bottles and little bottles to put them in. I picked up loads of small bottles and put them back. In Florida a trip to Walmart and youíre sorted, no need to take any!

We never buy the miniature toiletries.. just not worth it.

For America we just buy when we're out there and as we always stay the night before we as you do MH just take whatever is left of the toothpaste and shower gel purely for the hotel on the night before.

The only travel size ones I buy are hair spray and dry shampoo, I know itís not cost effective but means Iím not throwing away cans that are almost full at the end of the holiday.

its madness... plus its to catch out people who dont travel often.

For hand luggage trips i just buy it in the airport and leave what ever i dont use there, any other trip it goes in the hold.

We do bring to Florida (in our suitcases) our own deodorant sprays, shower gels, toothpaste, toilet rolls, bum wipes, washing machine pods, dishwasher tablets, teabags, cereals and this year I will be bringing costa filter coffee

We do twilight check in, so we just keep the remains of toiletries and throw them in the bin.

The overnight hotels have a toiletries pack, we normally just need tooth brushing bits. And deodorant.
