Just like anything we willingly allow near / on our faces, it’s important to really love your grooming products. This is especially relevant when traveling. It’s just that simple. (Also isn’t there something exceedingly satisfying about curating a collection of trustworthy essentials? Just think of all the ways to merchandise your bathroom…) And so, with the realization that Labor Day is fast approaching and quick getaways spent beachside are now numbered, it’s time to start readying the essentials and avoid any last-minute packing scrambles (because foresight = power, etc).
Enter Baxter of California‘s latest collaboration with DSPTCH, the San Francisco-based military-inspired accessories manufacturer that fuses design with durability. The resulting limited release dopp kit comes packed with travel-sized Baxter of California staples, including the Daily Face Wash, Oil Free Moisturizer, Super Close Shave Formula, After Shave Balm, Daily Protein Shampoo and the new Hard Cream Pomade – a personal favorite. The kit, which is constructed from ballistic nylon (which sounds like it could potentially survive a nuclear meltdown), features a removable padded valet tray – just in case you’re looking to maintain your OCD habit on-the-go. Which I am. Always.
