Skincare Travel Guide: Packing Essentials for Men on the Go


Summer isn’t the only time of the year when traveling is top of mind. There are also weekend getaways, work trips, and holiday voyages to consider. Before closing your suitcase and hitting the road, be sure to pack all your travel essentials so you can stay fresh and groomed on the go. Not sure what to bring? Don’t worry; Jack Black has your back. 

What Toiletries Do Men Need For Travel?

Packing the right men’s toiletries when traveling is essential so your skin and grooming routines don’t fall by the wayside. After all, nothing makes a trip go south like an out-of-control breakout, brutal sunburn, or unruly stubble. To help you out, we put together a comprehensive list of men’s travel essentials so you don’t leave anything behind. 

Men’s Toiletry Bag

First things first. You need a men’s toiletry kit to hold all your products and help you stay organized. It also safeguards against any potential spills. Ensure you get one that’s spacious and can be wiped down easily. 

Personal Hygiene Basics

Shampoo, conditioner, body cleanser, and deodorant or antiperspirant are the foundation of basic personal hygiene. You also don’t want to rely on the harshly formulated freebies left in your hotel bathroom.


  • Body Wash: If you want to reduce the amount of products you take, you can’t go wrong with Jack Black Men's Body Wash. Six of our formulas are suitable for your body and your hair! If you’re looking for something more travel-friendly that targets your body, hair, and face, there’s our All Over Wash Road Warriors TSA travel size 3-Pack. 

Shaving and Grooming

Keep whiskers at bay and your beard well-kept (even on lazy beach days) with Jack Black’s shaving and beard care products. 




Skincare and Sun Protection

While it’s okay to pare down on your skincare routine while traveling, you should maintain it as much as possible to ensure your skin remains healthy and radiant.  

  • Moisturize and Protect: To bring fewer products without skimping out on your routine, combine your Moisturizer and  SPF with our Dual Defense™ Face Moisturizer 100% Mineral Sunscreen. The weightless, oil-free daily moisturizer with SPF 30 protects from UVA and UVB rays. 
  •  At night, you can switch to our Dry Erase® Ultra-Calming Face Cream, which helps to moisturize, soothe, and diminish
    the appearance of redness. It’s a perfect treatment after exposure to harsh environmental elements while traveling.
  • Treat: Don’t neglect your Lips and Eyes! Protecting your pucker from the sun’s rays with Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 is vital. Additionally, it has petrolatum, which forms a protective barrier that prevents water loss while preventing and repairing chapped lips.

Whether it’s the heat, cabin pressure, jet lag, or one too many salty margaritas, Jack Black Eye Balm De-Puffing and Cooling Gel
helps soothe, depuff, and refresh tired eyes.


You’re all set with shampoo and conditioner, but you also need Hair Styling products like Body Building Hair Gel, Clay Pomade, or Sleek Finish Texture Cream to keep your mane controlled. Don’t forget to pack a Styling Comb to help detangle and create the perfect part.  


The final touch? Fragrance, of course! Freshen up with our All-Over Body Spray by day, but kick things up a notch at night with one of our more complex Eau de Parfums like JB or Blue Mark

What is the 3-1-1 Rule?

If you’re not checking a bag, you must follow the 3-1-1 rule with your carry-on suitcase or backpack. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allows each passenger to use one quart-sized bag to carry liquids, gels, or aerosols that are 3.4 ounces (100 millimeters) or below. Any larger bottles or containers must be in your checked bag. 


  • 3.4 ounces or less (3)
  •   1-quart sized bag (1)
  •   1 passenger (1)


Instead of trying to transfer your products into travel-sized containers, shop our Men’s Travel-Size Toiletries.  


  • Jack’s MPVs feature 13 of our best-selling products, from shaving essentials to skincare, so you’ll surely have everything you need for your trip. 
  • As the name suggests, the Jet-Setter Kit has all the core face, body, and shaving essentials in a luxe vegan travel bag. 
  • Shampoo and conditioner are two of the heaviest toiletries to drag along. Save some weight on the scale with our TSA liquid travel size Hair Care Travel Set spotlighting Jack Black True Volume Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner. 
You don’t have to change your routine when you travel, but you can make it easier on yourself by using multitasking products and TSA-friendly sizes to lighten your load while getting you through security without a hitch. Shop all of our product Gifts and Sets!
