You’re all packed for a trip out and you start packing the most important part of your luggage – the toiletry bag. Travelling the world (or even around Hong Kong) can be an amazing experience. Travelling with the right gear is even better! Imagine checking in to your accommodation and finding out there are no toiletries – that would be crazy! But having everything you need in a toiletry bag can save you a whole lot of hassle. Plus, you can customize your bag to suit each type of travel. Here are 5 toiletries that you must have in your travel toiletry bag.
Toothbrush and Toothpaste
The toothbrush-toothpaste combo ensures you have optimum dental hygiene every time you travel. Even when travelling for a day-trip, fresh breath and clean teeth are a must. Talking to your friends, fellow travellers and co-workers with fresh breath also enhance intimate communication.
Body odour build-up can be a big turn off. Particularly when out on a honeymoon or romantic trip, being clean and fresh is a priority. Your choice of body wash will ensure you are ready for a day out. Body wash also helps to get rid of allergens, dust particles and other contaminants in the air that may stick to your body. Wash up (invite your partner in too!) and you’re ready to hit the road.
Hair Shampoo and Conditioner
Much like body wash, shampoo helps to get rid of contaminants in your hair. If you have long hair, you know the feeling of musty, oily hair. Overcome this problem with the right shampoo. Choose menthol or minty shampoos for the spicy feel, or go for something fruity for a tantalising smell. Don’t forget to pair your shampoo with a conditioner. Conditioners make your hair soft, bouncy, and full of volume.
Whether you’re a man or woman, a razor could come in handy. Shaving is part and parcel of grooming. If you sport a beard, trim or shave it to keep it neat and tidy. A razor is a must when travelling for a formal business trip. You want to look sharp and clean-shaved. For the ladies, you may want to smoothen out your legs with a female razor or epilator.
If you are against shaving or want to kick back and relax, then you won’t need a razor for grooming. Instead, bring it along for other purposes. You may need a sharp razor to open food packaging or something of that sort.
As you may well know by now, smelling good is a priority. Titillate the olfactory senses with the ultimate fragrances and perfumes. If you don’t want to go high-class with those, choose a deodorant to get rid of those bad smells. Deodorants also add a sense of charm and charisma about you. The type of smell you give off says a lot about your personality.
These are simply the basics of what goes in a toiletry bag. Of course, you could add other items such as a comb or hair brush, facial wash, facial moisturiser, cotton buds, nail clippers and other grooming tools depending on how particular you are.
