    Default Shaving soaps with travel size containers

    I'm trying to see what options I have for my travel shaving set up. As always I appreciate your help.

    shave sticks,, there are a couple of really quality ones, or just cut some off your daily and install in a small container, they have some 2 ounces little Tupperware type things with a lid. an empty tin for shoe polish,, ma your imagination is the limit Tc

    Another possibility is purchasing samples--they come in small containers and you can get an assortment to take with you.

    Shave stick.

    Just rub on your wet face a bit, and get to it with a damp brush. Add more water if needed, you'll be surprised at how well it lathers, too.

    Transfer your favourite soap into an empty shave-stick and you are set.
    If you don't want to go through all of that trouble, there are quite a few soaps that come in shave-stick form.
    The one above is an excellent option.
    Personally, I really enjoy Mystic Water soap in shave-stick forum.
    Good luck.

    Its good stuff, lathers up just like Arko, or Derby. Smells kinda like a bar of deodorant soap, but in a nice way.

    Tc is right, Arko and Derby smell like urinal cakes. But I have no problems getting past that, for how well the product works, and its price to boot.

    La Toja, as good as it is, is not a great shave stick for travelling as the top is not screwed on and comes off easily.


    D.R. Harris and Tabac with their screw tops are far better in this respect.

    I've had a D. R. Harris shave stick for several years now. It's my go to travel soap.

    Palmolive is another great stick. It's wrapped in foil. I would put it in a pill bottle for traveling. Or for a cool factor of 10, get a vintage Colgate soap tube. I really need to get one myself one day.
