The Manly Man’s Summer Packing List: Organic Lip Balm & More


Going out of town does not mean you should take a vacation from your men’s skincare routine. With summer around the corner, you are likely planning trips and vacations. Whether you are exploring the outdoors on a backpacking trip or kicking back and relaxing on the beach, you need to be prepared.

This packing list will help you enjoy your vacation while still taking care of that manly body and face of yours. Working our way from haircare to skincare, keep reading to find out what toiletries you need to bring.

Comb or Hairbrush

To start, your packing list needs to include a comb or hairbrush. This basic grooming essential will keep your hair looking the way it should. We have all let our hair take on a windy day at the beach, and let’s just say the result is...interesting. Bring a small comb or brush and give your hairdo a reset.


No man can stay groomed without a razor. Even bearded men carry a razor to keep their beard looking clean around the edges. Keep yourself looking fresh while on vacation.

Men’s Shampoo & Conditioner

Men’s shampoo and conditioner are important items no matter where you are traveling to. These standard haircare products keep a man’s hair looking, feeling, and smelling good – especially after a long, sweaty day at the beach or hiking through forests. Take care of your hair with organic shampoo and conditioner loaded with masculine fragrances.

Oil-Based Pomade

Now for styling your hair. Healthy hygiene and haircare are important, but looking good on your vacation is equally as important. Unless you’re going on a week-long backpacking trip with your bros, you’re going to need an oil-based pomade. The look and smell of your hair will have ladies flocking to you. On a trip to California, you will have celebrity hair. On a trip to New York City, you will have better hair than a successful businessman. Pomade will complete your look.

Body Wash

Let’s talk skin now. Wherever you’re going, there’s a good chance the climate will be different from where you live. That’s where good, clean skincare products come into play. A shower routine is incomplete without body wash. The summer sun can dry out your skin, so prepare for the heat with the best men’s body wash for dry skin. A solid men’s skincare routine does not have to be complex. Simply using body wash can keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

Organic Lip Balm

Protect yourself while you soak up the sun. A long day in the heat can result in chapped lips. We recommend a natural and organic lip balm that contains SPF 15 or higher. Men’s lip balm should have a no-shine formula to avoid looking like lip gloss – unless you’re into that kind of thing!


Surviving a long day in the sun will require more than just organic lip balm. Sunscreen will protect your skin from getting fried. You want to come back from your trip looking tan, not red. Using sunscreen of at least SPF 15 will prevent your skin from showing signs of premature aging.
