You know those articles you read about flight attendants who manage to pack enough for a round-the-world trip in a single carry-on? Or those minimalist model types who somehow always have an overnight bag ready to go, in case they need to board a private jet last minute? Well, much as I’d like to say that my life is a similar whirlwind of non-stop glamour (it’s not), I have taken to keeping a little ziploc bag of mini shampoos and conditioners in my drawer to save time when packing. But it’s not chic. And there’s only so many more times I can chuck a glorified sandwich bag into my suitcase before the flimsy plastic gives up and my complimentary shower gels burst everywhere.
All of which is a long-winded way of saying that I’ve found an upgrade. No longer will I endure the indignities of failing to close a polythene grip seal bag (THOSE THINGS ARE TRICKY OK?!). Instead, I will carry one of these new Rituals amenities pouches. They’re already stuffed with bestselling Rituals products – all under 100ml – and the colourful cases look so smart next to the hotel sink. Bye bye, tatty plastic! Helloooo, fancy Rituals kit.
