Do You BYOT, Bring Your Own Toiletries?
Can you make it on just shampoo, conditioner and body lotion alone?
Last month when we reported that Lather had debuted their new line of eco-friendly hotel toiletries, it spurred a mini-conversation in comments about hotel toiletry habits.
Commenter Viaherlette said that "as a woman, I rarely use them unless they are really good (think Bulgari, Hermes...)" which is a valid point if you're like us and travel with your own face wash, toner, gel, moisturizer and sunscreen. Yes, this is a pain to travel with, we know but that's the price of beauty. Plus, the internet ages you faster than the sun. FACT.
However, no matter what the brand, we always need to use the shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion since we don't bring those along with us. But maybe you do?
We'd probably never BYOT if we knew we were staying in a luxe place that always carried Bulgari, Hermes, C.O. Bigelow, Kiehl's, Red Flower or Fresh, to name a few. But for the places who carry the ubiquitous Aveda or "Made Especially for This Hotel" brands, we'll be packing our TSA-approved toiletries instead.
