Packing a Dopp kit can be tricky. Premium grooming products aren’t always available in 3.4-ounce containers, and it’s all too easy to forget something in the last-minute rush to pack. Fortunately, a handful of today’s top grooming brands are squeezing their best products into TSA-approved packaging and organizing them into handsome, hard-wearing toiletry bags. The end results are grooming kits of skincare staples designed to get you through security without a hitch.
Aesop Boston Kit
Working with plant-based, lab-made ingredients that are held to high standards of safety and efficacy, Melbourne-based Aesop formulates premium grooming products and fragrances that have garnered a cult following the world over. Though the brand offers a number of pre-packaged samplers, the Boston kit is among its most versatile, offering a selection of unisex products such as the Classic Shampoo, Classic Conditioner and Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser, among others.
Ursa Major Weekender Wash Kit
Better ingredients lay the foundation for better grooming products, and Vermont-based Ursa Major is proof. The brand specializes in skincare essentials made with natural ingredients, most of which are organic, and boast appropriately subdued, earthy scents. The ultra-compact kit’s Essential Face Wipes and Fortifying Face Balm make post-flight cleanup a breeze.
Men’s Science Travel Kit
Men’s Science creates dermatologic-grade skincare products intended to be integrated into daily routines, best when used habitually. Its Dopp kit, with everything from Daily Face Wash to Ti02 SPF 30 Sunblock and Advanced Shave Formula, plus ear plugs and an eye mask, is one of the more robust flight-ready sets on the market.
Jack Black Power Trip Travel Set
For years, Jack Black has been making waves with high-performance, low-effort grooming products, all of which lean heavily on natural botanicals and plant extracts (for example, there’s blue algae extract and sea parsley in the Double Duty SPF 20 Face Moisturizer). The kit is intelligently packed, too; the all-in-one Turbo Wash Hair & Body Cleanser provides maximum utility while taking up minimal space.
