The 12 Essential Products That Should Be in Every Guy's Dopp kit

No matter if you’re headed to an out-of-town work event, a long vacation, or a quick weekend jaunt, packing is always the worst part of traveling. While different trips call for different clothes, one suitcase staple remains the same: your dopp kit. Sure, you might need to throw in a heavy duty SPF if you’re going to the Bahamas or an extra hydrating moisturizer if you’re headed to a frigid climate but for the most part, your product arsenal should be relatively static.

If you don’t already have a dopp kit to throw into your bag at a moment’s notice, now’s the time to change that. If you do, make sure you’ve got the below essentials packed for your breeziest and most well-groomed trip ever. While 12 products might sound like a lot, each of them serves a legitimate purpose—trust us, they’re what you need to stay looking and feeling fresh.

Black Fletcher Vegan Leather Dopp Kit ($35,

First things first, the actual bag part of the kit. This vegan leather option is both stylish and ethical and unlike canvas kits, it won’t get marked up when it goes through airport security.

Marvis Mini Whitening Mint Toothpaste ($7.50,

While throwing your regular toothbrush into your dopp kit is easy, fitting in a full-size tube of toothpaste isn’t. Keep this mini version stached in your bag to ensure fresh breath is always just a zip away.

Exfoliating Body Bar ($18,

Let’s face it, hotel bathing products are never up to par. To avoid having to use an overly bath gel, make sure this body bar finds a place within your dopp kit. It’s portable, exfoliating and hydrating—just what you need after a long day of travel.

Oribe Travel Size Signature Shampoo ($14, and Conditioner ($14,

Hotel shampoo and conditioner might even be worse than hotel body wash. These travel size products from Oribe will ensure your scalp and strands stay healthy and hydrated.

NIVEA Men Cream ($4.50,

A standard hand cream is always good to pack, especially if you’re spending a few hours or more on airplanes, which dry out your skin. This option by NIVEA is cheap, effective and won’t leave your hands feeling greasy.

GoodWipes Cleansing Deodorizing Body Wipes ($10,

For those days when you have to run straight to a meeting from your flight, these cedar-scented body wipes will come in handy. They’re basically a shower on the go and will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized.

Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant ($14,

Deodorant needs no explanation. This option is aluminum- and alcohol-free, and is also formulated with antiseptic eucalyptus extract to help keep you smelling good all day.

Neogen Real Fresh Green Tea Cleansing Stick ($20,

Stick grooming products are on the rise for their convenience and easiness. Simply swipe this exfoliating cleansing stick over your face, add water, and scrub.

The Truman Razor ($9,

Have a fresh razor packed for when you travel just to make sure you don’t forget the one in your shower. This one by Harry’s is as straightforward as it gets—nothing fancy is needed for a week or two away.

Supreme Cream Triple Cushion Shave Lather ($13,

Jack Black is an expert on all things men’s grooming and this cream will ensure your smoothest and most nourishing shave ever.

Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment for Men ($28,

Kiehl’s offers their fan favorite moisturizer in a 2.5 oz tube, making it the ideal travel must-have.

Beard Oil ($26,

If you’ve got a beard you probably already know how important it is to keep it (and the skin under it) conditioned with an oil. This option is formulated with kalahari melon oil and vitamin E and will ensure you evade dry, itchy, skin, no matter what climate you’re in.
