Travalo Review and Refill Tutorial

I can't exactly recall when I had first heard about the Travalo (it's one of those things where I can't remember at the top of my head but if I hear a certain word, it will trigger the memory and I'll remember where I heard it from originally). But I recall being immediately interested in it. Travalo is - in my own words - a tiny portable spray capsule which you can refill as often as you need too with whichever fragrance/fragrances you like for on-the-go touch ups or when you're running late and forget to wear any perfume (this has saved me more then once - I'm usually late for everything...)!

Travalo - Front.

Travalo - Back (holographic inscription - won't fade)!

The Travalo is just under 9 cm (it's 8.6cm if you want to be specific) in height and is capable of spraying up to 65 times (when full). The best part about this packaging is that it is made out of aircraft grade aluminum which makes the geek inside me scream with happiness. This means that it's lightweight and incredibly durable, so you can throw it into any bag without a second thought!

The original idea of the Travalo was to allow people to fly on a plane with their favourite scent. The capsule has it's own pressure regulating system which makes it safe to fly with. There are also no dangerous glass parts so there's no risk of shattering/hurting yourself with this product! :) Perfect for someone as clumsy and uncoordinated as myself...

You can see the little spray nozzle (aka. "fragrance atomizer") which releases a very fine mist and not a jet of fragrance! :) The entire packaging is very secure and airtight, it is a very well-made product and I have complete confidence in this bottle to last through bumps and scrapes and all sorts of horrors whilst traveling! ;)

The mechanism at the bottom of the capsule.
This little rubber bit at the bottom of the capsule is how the you full this capsule with any fragrance in a matter of seconds!

HOW TO FILL/RE-FILL A TRAVALO:


STEP ONE: Remove the top nozzle of your favourite perfume (don't worry, it can be put back on!) ;)
STEP TWO: Press the bottom of the Travalo to the end of the nozzle of your perfume bottle.
STEP THREE: Push the Travalo in up and down motions to fill with fragrance, keep an eye out for the see-through level indicator (make sure your Travalo is NO MORE THEN 3/4 FULL or you'll risk damaging the pressure system of the Travalo!) 
FINISHED! Replace the cap on the perfume bottle and have fun! :)

In conclusion, this little handy product has very quickly become an item which I simply cannot live without. I need to buy extras in every colour! Australia still has yet to realise its own version of this product, but the idea is so unique and just obviously simply that I can't believe I didn't own one for so long before!

I bought this for $21.23 AUD with free shipping to Australia from Feel Unique, shipping took around 4 weeks to Sydney (similar to Beauty Bay in that sense). There is a large variety of colours and they often have specials! CLICK HERE to visit the exact page I bought this from, there's currently a 4% off discount applied to these so you can get them for $20.38 AUD. :)

ADDIT: I recently found out that these can be bought in-store in Australia from Myers/David Jones or Terry White Chemist! Off you go! :)

I recommend for anyone out there, male/female, it does not matter (the bottles come in a variety of different colours!), because you'll find yourself reaching for this more then once! I had no idea what a dependence I would develop for this product until after using it for a few months. You no longer have any excuse to smell anything BUT delicious from now on! ;)

Have you tried out the Travalo? If yes, please tell me what your experiences/uses are for this little capsule? If no, are you interested in trying out this product? For future giveaway reference! ;)


Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog, all feedback is much loved and appreciated! These opinions are my own opinions and I'm not sponsored by anything/anyone. I understand that people may not share the same opinions as myself and I enjoy seeing how different people find the same product. Differences make us all unique! :)

Stay Beautiful! xx

  6. I've been browsing online more than 3 hours these days, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the web will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
