Usually, house brands are crap. Usually. Not so with the Grooming Lounge Greatest Shave Ever "Try Me" Kit ($20). This TSA-friendly sampler set includes the company's Mug Cleaner Face Wash (2 oz.), Beard Master Shave Oil (1 oz.), Beard Destroyer Shave Cream (2 oz.), and Best For Last Aftershave (2 oz.). Developed and perfected just for you at the Grooming Lounge barbershop in Washington, D.C.
Among the myriad of things that suck about getting old is the onslaught of hair growth in unsightly places — especially in your nose and ears. Keep these age-spurred outbursts in check with the Philips Norelco Precision Nose and Ear Trimmer ($13). Water resistant for easy clean-up, it features an angled, miniature head for better reach and control, battery power for maximum portability, and included attachments for keeping your eyebrows in check, as well.
Get clean with some help from the bar. The Zirh Cocktail Bar ($15 each) lets you pick your poison: Cucumber Martini ("light, crisp, transparent hydration"), Hurricane ("tropical rejuvenation with a twist of lime"), Long Island Iced Tea ("caffeinated citrus-cola renewal"), Sake Bomb ("an explosion of detoxifying hydration"), or Screwdriver ("cool, colorful citrus invigoration").
Save some counter space with the Hommage Madrid Razor ($225). Sporting a sleek gunmetal stainless steel finish, this pricey razor can be stored upright when not in use thanks to special weights in the base that make it free-standing. The Madrid razor works with the standby Gillette MACH3 blades.
With a one-click-removable smart charger that's cabin-approved for all airlines, the M5 will keep your devices charged no matter how many flight delays you encounter. Constructed with aerospace-grade polycarbonate, the M5 is a go-anywhere, do-anything travel bag. The tough exterior reacts to its contents, absorbing external pressure and then springing back into shape when the pressure is relieved. The M5 rolls on high-end Japanese 360° spinner wheels and is finished with an easy-to-access front pocket with a padded laptop sleeve that's crafted with ultra-durable, waterproof nylon and Italian Vacchetta leather that will develop a unique patina over time as a testament to your travel history.
