Do you ever get where you are going & some of your cosmetics were stolen out of your luggage so now you have to figure out where to buy stuff that you had to purchase online???

I have heard they go through luggage to steal from people.

I don't even leave our toiletries bag in a hotel room when we leave in fear of someone stealing something I need.

We don't leave anything in the room if we are not there.


@Nightowlz . I have been flying for over 50 years and have never had anything stolen out of my bags. That would be the last thing I would worry about when I fly.


@proudlyfromNJ @Nightowlz  - I've always left everything in my hotel room and not worry about it.  The only thing I wouldn't leave in the room would be cash or something valuable - like jewelry.  Everything else is easily replaceable. @proudlyfromNJ  - I'd hate to have to drag my personal belongings with me everytime I left the room. 


@San Antonio Gal 

 

I'm not leaving my stuff in the hotel room. I have read stories online about being ripped off. Things may be easily replaceable but not while I'm on vacation. All the makeup, shampoo/cond, skin care products I buy all online. I don't want to use stuff from the drugstore.

All we take to the room is a bag with a change of clothes, toiletries bag, my iPad & purse & DH's laptop. If we leave the room it all goes with us except change of clothes bag since I have more in the car. LOL!!!

I would not be happy if my makeup was stolen & I had to go shopping while on the road.


@Nightowlz . Oh, that’s different than what I was talking about. Usually my plane trips are sightseeing to other countries where I don’t have a car and do a lot of walking.

If I’m in this country I am usually staying with friends or family or renting a house. Edited to add, whenever we leave our hotel room for the day, we put the do not disturb sign on the door. We prefer not to have anyone in the room. We ask for towels or shampoos if we need them.

Re: PACKING TOILETRIES FOR FLIGHT OMG!

i have had items stolen out of my luggage, but never my toiletries.

cannot imagine why anyone would want my toiletries?

i think it is easy to pick up toiletries unless you are somewhere remote?

i would just go to the nearest drugstore and replace items.

 

no way would i drag my toiletries around with me when i am sightseeing.

 

have never had anything stolen from my hotel room. i do utilize a safe if there is one. i dont take any really expensive jewelry when i travel. if i lose jewelry or it is stolen i wont be heartbroken when it is costume jewelry.

I know from personal experience that items in the car are not as safe as they are in a hotel room, especially if you are visiting tourist areas.  Thieves target rental cars and out of state vehicles.

 

They can open a locked car with no visible damage and take anything in seconds.

 

I can't figure out why anyone would want used make-up or toiletries.  Yuck! If there was luggage or an overnight bag in the vehicle, they would just grab it and take it to a safe place to rummage through it.  So if your make-up was in the bag, it could be stolen. No one is looking to steal used cosmetics.

 

I don't think the hotel personal want used cosmetics either.  If you leave them behind when you check out, they toss them out.

We put stuff back in our car I don't carry it around while sightseeing.

What I mean about toiletries is my expensive Isomers serums, facial cleanser, Beekman soap, body butter, Skinn, Beekman or Joyce Giraud shampoos & conditioners, etc etc etc. All expensive stuff I use that I buy online. I cannot replace these things while on vacation from the drugstore. I'm not going to use just anything. I could probably find a foundation & blush to use but I'm not as concerned with it since I can go without if I have to.

i just use the soap, shampoo, and conditioner that is in the hotel....most of them are good quality items and i dont want to drag my own.

 

everything else......makeup, serums, lotions, facial care i do bring, but leave them out on the bathroom counter. cannot imagine anyone wanting used products like them. if they were gone. i can replace them when i get home and buy drugstore items for my time remaining if someone ever felt the need to steal them.

Well there are certain things I cannot use. Don't want my hair or skin getting dried out or irritated from something I picked up at the drugstore. I have found products that work for me without problems. I don't like using something new.

It's not hard to carry it to the car so it's out of site out of mind.

Re: PACKING TOILETRIES FOR FLIGHT OMG!

yes @Nightowlz  you have to do what works best for your situation.

 

i dont often rent a car but utilize uber and lyft or taxis so that definitely would not be convenient for me. i also dont like to leave products like that in a hot or cold car. again, i have never had any problems with people stealing my beauty products from my suitcase or my hotel room.

 

i HAVE had clothing and accessories stolen out of my luggage, but it  has not happened lately thank goodness.

Your car is not always a safe place.  My friend and her family arrived in the Washington, DC area for a vacation and they knew it was too early to check into their hotel.  So they went to one of the big DC tourist attractions and left their bags in the locked car.  When they came back to their car it had been broken into and their bags stolen.  They learned the lesson that valuables aren't safe in a car, either.
