Going out of town for a wedding next month and I need a couple travel items. Already picked out the Omega boar travel brush but would also like to include a shaving stick that is packaged for travel. The few I've seen (Arko, Speick) aren't really conducive to travel (foil wrapped) so I was wondering if anyone makes a stick that is in some type of sealable container and won't cause issues during travel?

La Toja and Lea have a container that has 3 holes in the top. Just dry the soap with a towel before packing it.

Mama Bears and Mystic Waters have shaving sticks with containers that are screw up and have a solid screw on top.

Mike's and DR Harris are also screw-up sticks, I believe. If I had to go with one, I'd choose Mike's, but that's a matter of personal preference.

I travel with a Speick Stick. Just went to the local drug store and got a large enough prescription bottle to put the stick in. When you screw the lid on, it's sealed. Works great.

I don't think it takes much to travel with a shave stick. Could just wrap in foil, find an old pill bottle, or I found the little container below (with some Speick in it) at my local super market for a couple $.

Moe, now that's a nifty little container. If all else fails, you can just put it in a small zip lock bag.

TOBS St. James Shave Stick is a screwup stick. Great scent and easy to travel with.

Lea sticks come in a plastic sleeve that works well in my GoBag. Mike also sells his wonderful soap in a twist-up container - much like some deodorants comes in - but it's fairly large.

La Toja is what I've always taken when I travel. Tabac comes in a plastic container as well.
Another option would be a vintage soap stick container or something like a pill container with holes drilled into the top.

Currently I am traveling and have the D.R. Harris shave soap stick in my wet pack. It comes in a tube and a screw on the bottom will allow you to expose as much of the soap as you need, much like the screw type deodorant. Of course, it's a D.R. Harris soap, which is highly regarded.

Drop by a local pharmacy and pick up an empty med bottle and cap. Use a big drill bit and drill a hole in the bottom. Cut a circle of light plastic(a piece of plastic notebook cover works well) and drop into the bottom of the bottle. Drop in your fav shave stick and it's ready to go. You will have to remove the plastic holder already on the stick or it won't fit into the bottle. The hole in the bottom allows you to push the stick up with your finger for use and the whole thing allows the stick to dry between uses. The stick is contained and doesn't make a mess in your luggage or backpack. I drill holes in a cap on a tall large pill bottle to store brushes in also. Works great for a traveling brush.

The foil wrapped Arko works fine for me just the way it comes.

For travel, I often use shaving soap sticks that have their own container. Examples include La Toja, Lea, Tabac, Irisch Moos, and D.R. Harris.

I agree with Obie - The D. R. Harris shave stick is the best, but you will pay $$$ for it. The twist up container is perfect, the soap is among the best on the planet IMO, and the container, when empty, will fit a stick of Speick perfectly. The price for the D. R. Harris sticks is high, but the soap lasts and lasts - then, you get the Speick refill. Easy peasy.

LEA is my favourite stick...awesome soap and the travel container is very handy!

You could get empty twist-up deodorant containers like this:

And just mash some soap into a couple of them.

Here's mine. [Image: 89217437387bff24f59121b6a805bec5.jpg]
It holds an entire stick just fine.
