A classy wash bag, neatly organised with high-quality grooming products, says a lot about the type of guy you are. That may be a slight exaggeration, but the truth is that a well-stocked mens toiletry bag – or Dopp kit, as they’re also known – is a sign of a guy who takes his appearance seriously.
A good wash bag will be hardwearing, spacious and spill-friendly. It should also look the part, preferably in leather or canvas – or both, as is the case with our favourites from brands such as John Henric and OneNine5.
Whether you’re taking your kit on holiday, to the gym or to work, you’ll want a quality product that will last. For instance, this one from British label Ally Capellino is made from waxed cotton that will repel moisture and stains and stand up to frequent use. It’s small enough to stuff into a gym bag or suit pocket for impromptu trips, and it opens wide for easy access to everything from razor blades to hairspray.
For a more premium option, consider this black toiletry bag from Danish brand Rains. Made from the same smooth, waterproof fabric that the label specialises in for its raincoats, it’s finely detailed with the brand’s signature embossment front and centre. It lays flat for easy packing and closes with two metal zips that run across the top panel, ensuring your products are safe and sound.
No trip is complete without a good moisturiser – and it’s especially important to pack a men’s face cream that will leave your skin feeling refueled, re-energized and revitalized. Try this one from Facial Fuel Energizing Face Moisturizer For Men, which is formulated with chestnut extract and vitamin C to help your skin feel healthy and refreshed.
No dopp kit is complete without a good beard oil, which will tame your scruffy man beard while also nourishing it for a soft and lustrous finish. Try this beard grooming oil from Grooming Solutions, which is enriched with pracaxi oil to smooth and nourish your facial hair. mens wash bag
