Whether you’re off on a quick over-nighter in Paris, a few days in NYC, or a week hopping from one East Asian metropolis to the next, this D.R. Harris grooming kit will make sure you are perfectly primped, preened and ready for action. Why not keep these great travel-sized products neatly zipped up in our new Ettinger Capra Washbag.
Rosemary Shampoo Bar
Shampoo bars are not just a hit with the super-woke millennials of the world. The D.R. Harris Rosemary Shampoo bar is, of course, an eco-friendly choice (saving on packaging waste), but it’s also super luxurious and lasts for the same amount of time as a 300ml bottle of shampoo. Usefully, as it’s a solid, you can also take this super-conditioning bar in your hand luggage. “I use this as a shampoo and shower gel in one,” says the charming Julian Moore, Head of Marketing at D. R. Harris, “and I find the rosemary fragrance an invigorating lift in the mornings.” Sounds delightful.
Windsor Eau de Toilette 50ml
The Windsor Eau de Toilette is perfect for the dashing (but modern) gent with its fresh but sophisticated, citrus, bergamot and leather tones. Luckily for you, it is available in a travel friendly 50ml size. “The Windsor Eau de Toilette is the one fragrance which I find myself most often reaching for," says Moore of this cult fragrance. "I never get bored of it and it frequently gets complimented, what more could you want?”. We can’t say better than that now, can we?
The Bamboo Toothbrush
Another ethical hero - with over 3.6 billion plastic toothbrushes discarded every year, doing your bit by changing to a wooden toothbrush can have a big impact. Of course, this isn’t just any wooden toothbrush – this is a D. R. Harris one. These chic branded brushes come with a brilliant array of bristle colours – choose from cool, icy blue, fresh greens or an eye-catching red. If you use an electric toothbrush at home, save yourself the bulky packing challenge and slip one of these into your Ettinger washbag instead. Environmentally friendly and convenient.
Almond Oil Guest Soap
Ah the Almond Oil Soap – one of The Journal’s favourite products. Who doesn’t love a traditional, handcrafted soap?This one is triple-milled for a luxurious lather and fragrances with a blend of rose geranium, cinnamon and clove for the perfect morning pick-me-up. But why is this 40g bar of soap a travel must, you might well ask? It might not be what you pack in your washbag for a short break, but this soap is the perfect holiday luxury: “All soaps are definitely not created equal and I find most of the ones in hotels are quite drying," explains Moore. "Ours are certainly not and this 40g guest size soap is perfect for a longer break.”
Windsor Stick Deodorant
The real everyday must for the D.R. Harris potion (and lotion) master is the humble D. R. Harris Stick Deodorant. “This is the one product I truly never go anywhere without (you’ll be relieved to know). The sticks last for months and the fragrance lasts all day when applied. Even a day getting off a long flight, followed by several buses, trains, taxis all whilst lugging luggage doesn’t seem to diminish the efficacy of the deodorant which is really all you, and your travel companions, can ask of it.” To top it off, this hero product is alcohol and aluminium free and suitable for sensitive skin.
So there you have it, our five favourite grooming essentials - now all you need to do is pack them into your Ettinger washbag to enjoy a superior grooming experience.
