Laurie, I got a Soma 25% off coupon in my email today, maybe you have one too.
We're flying through Heathrow which is very restrictive for carryon: all liquids, gels, creams, and pastes have to fit in an 8x8" clear bag. I'm prioritizing sunscreen, bug spray, hair conditioner, face cream, rosacea cream, anti-itch and anti-biotic ointments, and toothpaste, and we'll see what room is left. Things DH and I share can go in his bag, I think. He's low maintenance, he just needs a teeny bottle of aftershave.
According to international rules, the airline of record from your starting point (in our case Delta going, KLM returning) determines your luggage allowances/restrictions. But once we leave the US, I don't trust that it won't be a problem if we are scanned again for some reason (if we follow US rules which don't include lotions and pastes). So, I am erring on the side of the most restrictive of our our flights and airports.
It is a bit freeing, actually, that we have to do with less. I've been giving myself no-makeup days to see how I feel about that.
One of the results is that I think I have the wrong hair color (again).
