It’s always best to check the specific rules of the airport and airline you’re travelling with before you travel, as these can vary – you should be able to find this information easily online, or give them a call.
Can I Take Shaving Gel or Foam in My Hand Luggage?
You can only carry small amounts of shaving gel, shaving foam and other liquids in your hand luggage, so you might need to take some time to decant bigger bottles into smaller containers before your trip. You can usually buy suitable containers at your local chemist.
All liquids carried in your hand luggage must be in containers of 100ml or less, and they must be placed in a clear 1-litre bag, which will be screened separately at security.
It’s worth noting that the shaving gel in a Gillette razor subscription starter kit is 75ml, meaning that it can be taken on flights as part of your hand luggage – and we’ve got more tips on which Gillette products to pack below.
Travel Grooming Kit Essentials
Feeling your best is important, whether you’re at home or on holiday, and you shouldn’t just stop at your razor to achieve that. The items you pack in your travel grooming kit need to be able to cover all of your facial and body hair styling needs while you’re away, but also fit into your hand luggage.
Here’s our guide to the grooming tools you should – and can – take on board a flight:
1. Wet Razor
If you prefer wet shaving, you can take disposable blades in your hand luggage with you. As explained above, you can also pack a certain amount of shaving gel or foam in your cabin luggage, allowing you to achieve the smooth razor glide that you’re used to at home.
2. Electric Razor
Packing a multi-function electric razor in your cabin bag can give you so many more options than a wet razor. With the Gillette All Purpose Styler and Beard Trimmer, you can trim evenly, shave closely and edge precisely, getting all the benefits of dry shaving and wet shaving with one handy gadget.
It’s small and lightweight, so it can easily fit in your hand luggage, and you can simply take the attachments you need with you. The All Purpose Styler is battery-powered too, so you’ll still be able to shave even if you don’t have access to a plug socket.
3. Shaving Gels and Foams
Whether you’re going for a clean-shaven look or just giving your facial hair a slight trim, make sure you’re using proper shaving products to hydrate your skin and soften your hair before shaving. This will make your hair easier to cut through for a more comfortable shave, and it’ll help to keep your skin in good condition too.
Our Fusion5 Men’s Ultra Sensitive Shaving Gel is available in a hand luggage-friendly 75ml, and it features our Ultra Comfort Complex to soothe and protect your skin during shaving, so it’s perfect for taking on holiday.
