Travel & Lifestyle | Our four items that every man needs to travel with

I am literally counting down the minutes to our upcoming trip to the Dominican Republic. After a busy 2015, I look forward to sharing the experience with you all yet again. The fact remains that as a man, I still need to be mindful of the beauty and grooming products I need to travel with to ensure I can feel my best anywhere in the world. Come check out my top 4 beauty must haves for the men in your life. Be it a romantic staycation or trip around the world, our picks will help to keep him looking his best!

You’ll remember that we introduced you to The Philips Shaver Series 9000 recently when we got to try it for ourselves. Not only did the experience (click here to read all about it) leave us looking our best, but it helped to change my mind about shaving in general. I am officially a convert!


1. The Philips Shaver Series 9000 tops our list as a beauty and grooming must have. Not only does it come with a travel friendly cleaning stand, it also doesn’t take up too much room in your luggage or carry on. The best shave I’ve had all year, this is a must for the man in your life if he is looking to keep his face looking his best.


2. John Varvatos’ Dark Rebel might just be my favourite cologne ever. Not too musky and not too feminine, it makes the Libra in me smile in it’s beautiful balance. “Sweet, redolent tobacco leaves steeped in golden spirits meets the rhythm of sensual resinous woods in a complex and sleek aroma at first encounter. A mixture of Jamaican rum, black leather and black pepper blend together to give the fragrance its wild edge. Spray if you dare: this scent could change everything.”


3. Montblanc Legend Gel Douche Intégral will keep the man in your life clean, crisp and ready to take on whatever travel plans you have made. Most men don’t like settling for the hotel option, and this is a great way to keep him feeling his best. Since being introduced by Julio on FASHIONIGHTS, I can’t go back to any other shower routine!


4. L’OCCITANE Cedrat Shaving Gel is probably the best shaving accompaniment (for those of you who wet shave while using your Philips Shaver Series 9000) on the market. Now, let’s be honest, there are a LOT of shaving creams and gels on the market. “Enriched with organic Corsican cedrat extract, it leaves the skin clear, soft and energized. Tested under dermatological supervision.”  Not only does it help with my sensitive skin issues but also smells incredible.

By combining these four beauty and grooming products, I look my best, and the men in your life can too. All of these products will be coming to the Dominican Republic with me and will ensure that I am beach and sunshine photo ready. I can’t wait to share the experience with you all!
