I’ve been a bit of a twat and treated myself to some Clinique moisturiser at duty free on my outward journey 🤦‍♀️
We’ve only got hand luggage to return but I have a sealed twin pack of 125ml moisturisers to get home from Spain .......
is it worth the risk of chancing it at airport security 🙈
I’ve also stupidly thrown the receipt away as any proof 😩
Any helpful suggestions 😬

If flying EasyJet they have a Hands Free option on some routes. There is a cost but £6 I think or £15? for a group. You check your your hand luggage size bag in and can take a smaller bag on board for free.

Can you not just decant them into some smaller bottles or am I missing something?

Buy some hold luggage or post it or give someone a lovely present in Spain and buy more coming the other way.
You wont get it through security. Sorry.

I would post the items back to the Uk via courier.

If you take these through security it will certainly be taken off you because it is over 100ml

Unless you check the case in BEFORE going thru you have no hope.
My friend did worse last year, she and her dh bought a litre of decent vodka and one of brandy on the way out
Then merrily marched up to security on the way home and got it confiscated even though it was still in the sealed duty free bag 🤨🙄

Duty free purchases can be collected at the airport on the return journey , provided you ask them when you're buying it. Sounds like it's too late now so posting is the only option smile

EasyJet handsfree is great.
