“Handle good and sturdy. Easy to close and open. Also used as make up bag for handbag when on holiday.”

However, not everyone was so pleased.

One disgruntled customer posted: “Arrived and was happy till I tried to separate them.

"They were stuck together and when I did eventually manage to separate them, they were not clear but rather cloudy with a sticky kind of residue on them.

Someone else said: “It simply does not hold as much as the free bags given away at airports.

“I'd guess it holds about half a litre, not 1 litre.

“The plastic is thick and while it is about 20x20cm, it does not bulge out to accommodate all my liquids.”
