If I was traveling, or rather when I could travel, that would have been my choice as well. If we are talking just using one for ten days at home, Yardley.

I often do the 'soap a week' (SAW) thing, using the same puck for 5-7 shaves in a row... it's a great way to really dial in product. Mike's and CRSW are easy wins here, always delivering great shaves. When traveling I use a DR Harris shave stick the entire time. If I were making a new shave stick for an upcoming trip, these would be on my shortlist:

Mike's barbershop, OC&BP, lemongrass & eucalyptus
CRSW LCS, American barbershop, citrus, limenthol

Nuvia (Rosa and Verde) and T+S (Yuzu/Rose/Patchouli and Shag) would be my choice.

Valobra Hard Puck in Patchouly.  Nice mild scent, not too strong so it won't bother you over time.  Compact plastic container that is light and durable.

If there is room for one, there is room for two. Stick to your routine: dont use the same two days in a row.

I bring vie long stick and c. o. bigelow cream. Both good performers and not expensive.

Czech & Speake No. 88. It has a mild but interesting scent, and it's very concentrated. You won't have to pack but a dab to keep you in suds for a fortnight.

This is a great post for a number of reasons not just travel!

A stick of MdC fougere in an empty D R Harris tube stays with me all the time. A pure coconut oil soap will lather in any water.

For variety, I have added different soaps, but I like SdM for the mild scent, and usually carry a little tin of LpL Rose de Pushkar because I like the scent, but sometimes I carry a half-used puck of Oxford and Cambridge in a tin that it fits in nicely.

Cheers, Steve

If I were traveling I would go with a tube of cream or shave stick.

Tube would be penhaligans Endymion
Stick would be Mystic Waters PDP

If I were picking based on soap only - Lavender Creeper. Logistically that dish isn't travel friendly, so I'd leave it at home.

I'd take Stirling Sharp Dressed Man. It plays well in all situations.

I always take a soft soap (usually Captains Choice) on vacation as soft soaps lather great with small brushes and any kind of water.

PAA - Club Guy; because it's a great scent that will go with most aftershaves I would take on vacation. It's also softer soap, easy to lather up, and can also be had in a shave stick (which I have for travel if I have limited space) Thumbsup

I shaved with Mike's Hungarian Lavender over the weekend and would consider a more consistent performer among the soaps I use. The post shave starts once the face lathing begins. Brings a good amount of moisture to the face so you can encourage that through how much you wet the proto lather from the puck.

Another one I like Dolomiti SV. Michelle's Unscented Mystic Water Soap with the Sea Buckthorn and Calendula is very soothing as well. I can make the same consistency of wet lather with any of these 3 soaps because they can absorb water through the mixing.

If you are Travelling for 10 days do yourself a favour and bring 2 soap/scent instead.

There's definitely enough room .

Already did. Spent 3 weeks in Europe last year with a Speick stick and aftershave. Fantastic shaves every time. Took the same combo to Cuba with me for 10 days this year.

As a beginner, I only own 1 soap and 8 creams. I rotated between the 2 original creams in 1 week intervals and the other cream and soap the occasional shave. I just received a 5 cream Sample Pack from Stone Cottage Soaps and have been using the first one for 10 days now. It's their Hesperide and I love it. For travel I would take it in the (1" dia. x 3/4" tall) plastic sample jar; after 10 shaves it's still two-thirds full.

Mitchell's Wool Fat.
Some folk may jump in and say it's finicky about water, so might not be a good travel choice. But when I first started using MWF our water was so hard it was difficult to even get shampoo to lather properly, yet I had no problems with Mitchell's. Our water is now so soft we can hardly rinse the soap off, yet there is still nary a problem with MWF.
For me, I would use it with confidence wherever I was. YMMV.
