So we’re going home for Thanksgiving next week and I have a question that I can’t seem to get a good answer on. I know in carry on luggage that things like shampoo have to be a certain size. But can you take normal sized things in the checked luggage? We’ll probably get some smaller bottles for shampoo,conditioner, and body wash but things like face moisturizer would be easier to just take in their normal bottles.

Yes – you can have “normal” sized liquids in checked luggage.
Carry-on bags are the only ones with size restrictions on liquids/gels.

Yep. I can’t ever meet the liquid standards for carry on, so I always have to check my bags.

I hate having to find dry hair spray or mousse in travel sized containers… ughh

Yeah, you can pretty much bring any size in checked bags – it’s just the carry ons that are restricted. And remember that you’re each allowed only ONE quart-sized, zip-top bag for carry on toiletries. It’s such a pain because if you’re like me you use 80 billion liquid products from lip gloss to hair gel and it’s so hard to pick and choose x_x
I have 4-5 small containers I bought in a set together that are legal size for carry on which I reuse everytime I fly so I don’t have to try and find a travel size of the things most important to me 🙂

You are only restricted in carry on’s. You should get a travel bottle set from target and label it!
I did hear last time I flew (Sept) that you can now have full sized liquid medications in your carry on, so there is no longer a restriction on that.

@MissCalifornia: I do use a lot of stuff but luckily it’s only a two hour flight. So I’ll just take my chapstick in my carry on and I’ll be perfectly fine.
Medication I’m taking in my carry on but it’s just a pill so it hopefully wouldn’t have been an issue anyway. And I probably will still get smaller bottles for some stuff but we’re sharing things anyway so we’ll see (I’ll just bring my shampoo and conditioner and he’ll deal with it since it’s not too girly smelling).
