If you intend to take hand luggage on your next trip, or you simply have too much to fit into your suitcase that full-size beauty products just won’t do, we go through the mini grooming essentials aimed towards men that will have you in tip top condition to meet those all-important clients. Whether you’re in need of a good cologne, shaving cream or face wash, we have you covered.

Tom Ford Shave Oil

 
 
Prepare for take-off and super-soft skin with the Tom Ford Shave Oil. Aiming to soothe and hydrate the face after you shave, which by nature dries out the skin, you’ll be feeling groomed and put-together as soon as you reach the airport. Oh, and there’s also a beard oil (Tom Ford Conditioning Beard Oil, £42) if you don’t shave yet you still want to look your best.
