Mens Wash Bag Essentials
When it comes to packing up your toiletries and grooming essentials for a trip, a flimsy plastic bag from the drugstore simply won’t cut it. Instead, you need something primed for travel—roomy to hold your lotions and potions (but not too big to fit into your suitcase) and, above all, stylish. To that end, we asked frequent travelers and men’s-grooming experts what they put in their wash bags.
In our opinion, no trip is complete without a sturdy leather toiletry bag, like this one from Bennett Winch that’s crafted from vegetable-tanned full-grain black leather and finely embossed with the brand’s signature motif front and center. Plus, the leather will age beautifully with use, making this a toiletry bag that’s built to last.
Similarly, this sleek waxed cotton toiletry bag from Ally Capellino is perfect for gym outings and weekend jaunts. It unzips flat and opens up like a hard-shell suitcase, meaning it’s easy to stuff in everything from a pair of sneakers to a travel blow dryer and grooming products.
A solid mens toiletry bag must also include a non-negotiable moisturizer for your skin type, such as this Facial Fuel Energizing Face Moisturizer For Men, which has nourishing pracaxi oil and chestnut extract to help keep skin feeling hydrated. Finally, add a beard oil to your bag to tame coarse facial hair and help nourish the skin beneath it. Danish label Tooletries makes a handy waterproof silicone version that can suction to the side of your shower, which is a smart way to minimize clutter and streamline your bathroom routine. mens wash bag
