Products / Travel

It is not unusual to look at your medicine cabinet and wonder how you acquired so many products. That moment might inspire you to perform a thorough spring cleaning. This might leave you with some semblance of order, but between the free samples and the necessary creams and snake oils, there is still an unlawful excess. This is never more apparent than when you have to travel. The travel jars you bought expressly for this purpose have disappeared, or worse, they were not cleaned out from your previous trip and have been rendered useless. This is where a reliable travel kit comes in and the high-end company Aēsop is a specialist in knowing exactly what you need.

This company marries high-quality, plant-based ingredients with an aesthetic they describe as intelligent and sustainable. You have the feeling you are visiting an old-world pharmacy when dealing with these products. Although the travel options can be a little pricey in the form of a wider array of products you will see in the Boston or London travel kits, the Jet Set Kit includes classic shampoo and conditioner, as well as the geranium leaf body cleanser and rind skin body concentrate for $37. This carry-on friendly kit is just the ticket for a shorter trip.
