Stick Shift

When it comes to morning routines (especially when traveling), brevity and ease of use trump all. So while searching for a shaving cream that was both practical and packable, we happened upon this pre-shave stick by Sharp's popular Kid Glove line. Formulated as the first step in your ritual (think a solid shave oil), we found the lightly-scented stick works just fine on two-day stubble all by itself. Slick without being greasy, it softens whiskers and soothes skin with a combination of chamomile and willowherb. We may never need shaving cream again. Pre-Shave Stick, $16, at Sharps USA
