Our Favorite Things: Our Top Shaving And Grooming Picks For Travel
Here at West Coast Shaving, we love a great vacation as much as the next guy. And I'm sure it's no surprise that we like to stay well-groomed and looking our best whether we're at home with all our regular shaving gear or on the road with the bare minimum.
Don't let a fun vacation (or even a last-minute business trip!) leave you feeling frazzled and unkempt.
Essential Shaving & Men’s Grooming Products for Travel
- Dopp Kit - Having a bag handy to carry your gear is a necessary component of carefree travel.
- Travel Shaving Brush or Shaving Brush holder - protecting your shaving brush is vital on the road. You can buy a protective tube that will hold your favorite brush (not only will it guard the knot against friction and wear but it will also allow it to dry if you happen to have to move quickly with a damp brush). Perhaps space is an issue when you travel. Then you might want to invest in a specially designed travel shaving brush. Usually of a smaller size and with their own built-in protections, this can be a nice option for a frequent flyer.
We recommend West Coast Shaving Traditional Travel Shaving Brush. Our travel brush allows you all the comforts of a full-size brush but with the a few touches to make it travel-worthy. It is loaded with synthetic hair which is great for on-the-go as it dries quickly and recovers fast if put away damp. It also twists apart so you can protect the hair by sliding it inside the handle for travel.
- Travel safety razor or case - Your brush isn’t the only delicate piece of shaving equipment when you travel. You also want to keep your safety razor in tip-top shape. Like your shaving brush, you have two options: buy a case or buy a specially designed travel safety razor. Cases are usually leather and can be as simple as a sheath for the head or as elaborate as a molded form for each piece of your razor. Many are simply envelopes for your entire razor. Most of the time, you will want to remove the blade during travel to protect the case. On the other hand, you could buy a travel safety razor which has the advantage of smaller size, portability, and built-in protection. Whatever you decide, you will be pleased to enjoy a traditional shave, even on the go.
We recommend WCS Leather Safety Razor Case. This leather holder fits most DE safety razors and protects it from bumps and bruises in your bag. Get it in brown or black.
