The most difficult part of getting ready for a trip? Packing personal products that will make it through airport security without being confiscated or causing a pat down reminiscent of walking through a raging college fraternity party. I have two discoveries, one for you and one for your guy, that are TSA-friendly and total must-haves for any trip.
The first product is one that Gentlemen’s Tonic, a London-based luxury grooming and style line, sent me in anticipation of their product launch into the US. Gentlemen’s Tonic is ‘simple sophistication and self-confidence for men’ with everything a man needs, from classic shaving products to unique Eau de Toilettes. All of their products are made with naturally based plant-derived materials from sustained and renewable resources.
I am head over heels for their Moisturizing Hand Balm ($18), which is a hand cream that your guy will love. It is intensely moisturizing without greasiness. I am not kidding, this balm will soothe even the roughest, most callused hands. Check out these ingredients:
- Almond Oil: light and quickly absorbed providing an excellent moisture barrier.
- Manuka Honey: increases skin repair and is a natural anti-bacterial.
- Sunflower Oil: rich in Vitamin E, a natural anti-oxidant.
- Babassu Oil: melts at body temperature drawing heat from the skin producing a cooling effect. Also forms a protective, soothing coat providing a luxurious, velvety feeling.
- Bergamot Oil: an essential oil renowned for its uplifting and tension-relieving properties.
The Babassu and Bergamot scent is fabulous. It smells fresh and clean and manly and it’s the perfect size for travel.
For yourself, definitely check out the Travalo Milano ($49.99). It’s a beautiful way to decant your favorite fragrance so you can travel with your favorite scent without fear of spillage or a TSA nightmare.
Filling it is easy and it holds 65 sprays. It has a ‘pump to fill’ system that doesn’t expose your fragrance to the air, which can change the scent. The spray is super fine and the decant is air tight. I love the beautiful leatherette bottle which feels substantial – it has all metal parts, no glass so it is totally TSA perfect. Plus there are nine different colors available. If you do any air travel, you will truly appreciate this awesome find.
