This Malin + Goetz Stylish Toiletries Kit Has All Your Grooming Essentials Packed And Ready
Unless you’re prepared to travel with your entire medicine cabinet, staying well-groomed on the road can be a challenge. Hotel amenity kits are famously scant—and the ones you get in business class don’t come with enough floss to last for longer than a day. And while you could diligently pour the contents of your full-sized grooming favourites into those travel-sized bottles they sell at most drug stores, do you really want to? It is for these reasons that I’m grateful for the travel toiletry kits made by a variety of high-end grooming companies. But none of them comes close to being as comprehensive as the one launched in July this year by Malin + Goetz, the New York-based brand beloved for its effective—and beguilingly scented—products. The brand is also serious about its quality and environmental impact for that, has designed all its formulas to remove all sulphates, PEGs, synthetic fragrances and are 100 per cent vegan.
The Malin + Goetz kit comes with six one-ounce tubes (100 per cent recyclable aluminium), filled with a head-to-toe list of its best-selling products: In it, you’ll find the grapefruit face cleanser, Vitamin E face moisturiser, bergamot hand and body wash, vitamin B5 body moisturiser, peppermint shampoo and cilantro hair conditioner. These scents aren’t designed to linger—they merely delight during your ablutions—so you don’t have to worry about walking around your vacation destination smelling like a nonsensical fruit salad.
All it’s missing is toothpaste, sunscreen and deodorant. To that end, you can slip the kit into a regular toiletry bag, but a clever traveller might also rearrange the tubes to make room for one or two other essentials. The clear bag that contains the kit is made of biodegradable materials, but it’s tough and roomy enough for the handful of other things you might want on hand during your next voyage. This ingenious grooming kit is now available in Malaysia from Kens Apothecary.
