Boots Pump Travel Bottle
Advantages: Lightweight. 100mls (suitable for hand luggage). Convenient. Reusable.
Disadvantages: Pump sometimes gets stuck.
I have six miniature travel bottles from Boots, including two pump travel bottles. I find these bottles are really handy, particularly for shorter vacations where it really isn't necessary to take a whole bottle of shampoo or body oil - and so having these miniature bottles saves on space and does not impinge so much on your weight allowance. In addition to this, as they only contain 100ml of any solution, it means they do meet current airline fluid restrictions where you can carry this in your hand luggage without any problem. So basically, what I do before traveling somewhere is siphon off a little shampoo, body oil, moisuriser etc. into these bottles and then take these with me.
The bottles are small and lightweight - and as I said contain a maximum of 100ml of fluid. The plastic is clear and so you can see how much of a solution you have in the bottle. In order to fill the bottle, you simply remove the plastic screw top lid and then pour in the solution you want to put into the bottle (this bottle works best for substances about the consistency of shampoo) - and then you screw the top back on. The screw top is secure and does not leak. The top has a pump action spray attached to it and so the solution is removed from the bottle by pressing down on the pump. The pump works fairly well....but it is not perfect - and it doesn't seem to work well with solutions that are too thick or too thin. I do find from time to time that the pump gets stuck down - but once I pull it back up and pump it a few times, it tends to start working again. I don't think the pump action works as well as it does on the pump action bottles of products - but they also not reusable. They clean will with water and detergent and so can then be reused many times.
1 bottle cost me 89p from Boots - which is a very good price. I also have bought other travel bottles in the same series which are probably better than the pump action bottle.
Summary: Handy for short trips.
