I always carry this with me whether if it's for check in or for hand carry. Having a separate bag for your toiletries in the check in baggage secures your clothes from not being bathed with spilled liquids. You do not want to spend your vacation washing your clothes when you should be gazing up the Eiffel Tower, conquering the Great Wall, or having a photo op in cherry blossoms.

The toiletries however, is not allowed on carry on baggage if the liquids is more than 3.4 ounce. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has a policy of 3:1:1. All liquids (lotion, shampoo, perfume, conditioner, etc) must be in 3.4 oz or smaller containers that fit in 1 clear quart-sized bag with only 1 bag per passenger.

Here's the list of the toiletries I put in my bag:
1. shampoo & conditioner and body wash or soap
I only bring sachets for the convenience but if ever you have special shampoos or conditioners that does not come in sachets, buy a 3.4 oz of clear bottle and label it.
2. facial wash, feminine wash, toothpaste, toothbrush
3. deodorant, lotion, perfume
4. make up remover, alcohol, sunscreen or mosquito repellent, cotton, day moisturizer. (I put tissue in a separate bag)
So there! I hope this list will keep you reminded on what toiletries to bring whether it's just an excursion or a long journey vacation. Feel free to screenshot!
