Anyone seen hand luggage sized invisible spray suncream?!

Found 25th May 2011
I'm going to Qatar for 3 days so am only taking hand luggage, therefore am only allowed liquids up to 100ml! I want spray, but the invisible stuff... cannot find it anywhere! I've looked in Boots (they only have lotion), all the supermarkets and Superdrug but to no avail! I also already have a full sized bottle but can't find one of those empty travel bottles with a spray that doesn't just spurt everywhere! Anyone bought any recently?!

I see what you did there. Sometimes they just write themselves.


why not just buy a normal sized bottle after you go through departures from the boots etc airside?

They have shops in Qatar! (_;)

Ordinarily I would, but once there I have to get on a smaller plane and I think the same rules apply, and where I get on that small plane, there is no duty free!

you're going to a terrorist training camp and don't want to admit it, aren't you??

This may seem a stoopid question (I'm not a frequent overseas traveller) but if you can take 100ml are you allowed to take a 200ml bottle that is half full or do they just go by the bottle size and not take into account the fact that it is only half full.

If they do could you not buy the bigger bottle and empty some out?

160591632473 is 100ml looks like what we take as its aerosol and i prefer them.

or can you use the lotion wipes?

Nope, the container cannot be larger than 100ml so can't do that!

That looks good, thanks! Not high enough SPF for me as it's going to be about 50 degrees out there but may grab some for next time!

I have seen security confiscate bigger part filled bottles, so the answer is 'no'; they must be individual container(s) no larger than 100millilitres.

(I have also heard of security insisting that every traveller transfer from their own perfectly legal transparent bags to plastic bags doled out by them!!)
