We usually focus on the ladies here at Travel Beauty, but men, we want you to know you (and your skin) are on our minds as well. We’ve recently added new men’s grooming items from two of our favorite brands, and we’d like to introduce them to you – we think you just might like them.
Binchotan Charcoal Shaving Gel
The first product is the latest creation from Japan’s Binchotan Charcoal. Binchotan charcoal seems to make every product with which it is infused exponentially better and more effective. Why? Known as the highest quality activated charcoal for purifying water, Binchotan charcoal can be used to absorb chemicals in tap water, remove toxins from the skin, capture moisture and odors from the air, enhance blood circulation in a hot bath, stimulate healthy soil in the garden and deflect negative ions in your home. Given this impressive resume, we are happy to have as many Binchotan charcoal products as possible, and they’ve now created a Binchotan Charcoal Shaving Gel.
The Binchotan Charcoal Shaving Gel is a complete shaving experience, containing not only purifying Binchotan charcoal but also hydrating glycerin, invigorating rosemary and cooling menthol. What it does not contain are parabens, oil, synthetic fragrance or dye. Shaving Gel is a bit of a misnomer, as this is actually a 3-in-1 pre-shave lotion, shaving cream and aftershave that moisturizes, protects and soothes the delicate skin of the face and neck for a close shave that is not too close for comfort. As an all-in-one product, it’s perfect for busy mornings and, of course, travel. (Though we’re addressing the men here, it’s lovely on the legs as well, ladies, too.)
Ursa Major Traveler’s Skin Care Kit
The Traveler’s Skin Care Kit is another new travel essential from our friends at Ursa Major. Ursa Major provides men with healthy and highly effective skin care solutions that are a pleasure to use. These advanced formulations are robust, natural alternatives to the bland, chemical-laden products that pervade today’s marketplace. Ursa Major’s products never contain petrochemicals, sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrance or color, glycols, silicones or PEGs.
This complete collection of simple and effective skin care for men comes in TSA-approved sizes all boxed up for easy use. It makes the perfect gift too! This kit covers all the skin care bases and includes Ursa Major’s Fantastic Face Wash, Stellar Shave Cream and Fortifying Face Balm. It also contains five individually wrapped tonic-infused Essential Face Wipes….that can even be used on the body in a pinch!
