So, you’ve managed to book yourself a cheeky end-of-summer mini-break, which inevitably means one thing: you’re going to have to cram all your toiletries into one of those naff plastic bags at the airport. But, fear not, we’ve put together a handy list of five grooming travel essentials to take with you that are all 100ml or less. Get packing…
5 GROOMING TRAVEL ESSENTIALS
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 25 August 2018
After a successful day at the beach, there’s nothing like ambling back to your hotel room to take a long shower to wash away all the sand you've managed to collect. Cue, this shower gel from men-ü. With a rich black pepper and bergamot fragrance, lather up with this bad boy to keep your skin hydrated and feeling fresh.
Post-shower, moisturising is key – especially when you’ve been spending hours in the sun. To prevent flaky, dry skin on your face and body, use this lightweight moisturiser from Ted’s Grooming Room. Fruit extracts including sour cherry will help to soothe any parched, itchy skin, while vitamin E and Moringa oil help to defend against the effects of pollution. Nature saving the day, eh?
When Clinique For Men dropped on ASOS, the guys at ASOS HQ rightfully got pretty hyped up. From aloe vera-infused shaving gel to a 2-in-1 skin hydrator and beard conditioner, the range is as extensive and effective as they come. Lather up with this face soap in the morning or at night to keep your facial skin on point – especially if you have particularly oily skin.
Now, there’s no need to stress out and/or get embarrassed... when it’s hot out, we’re all inclined to sweat profusely and perhaps end up smelling a little funky. But that’s where this roll-on from 31st State comes in to save the day. Infused with zinc to combat body odour (nice one, science), carry this one in your cross-body bag while out and about to keep yourself smelling fresh.
Your mum routinely slathering you in sun cream is probably a defining feature of your childhood – and that’s because it’s vitally important to protect your skin. This SPF 50+ Extreme Sun Lotion from Ultrasun may seem a little, ahem, extreme, but if you’ve got sensitive skin, it’s a solid shout to carry this non-greasy, non-sticky, water-resistant concoction with you.
