Forget a toiletry item? GroomingZone to the rescue!!

Have you ever gotten to the airport and realized, “Dangit! I forgot my toothpaste/deodorant/razor?” I know I have. Well, that won’t be a problem anymore. If you forget some critical toiletry item, you can now purchase a replacement at GroomingZone. You all know I love a good vending machine (Sephora anyone?), and The New York Times calls it “The New Touch Face of Vending Machines.”  I would say it’s probably 20 times nicer than a mere vending machine, as GroomingZone does not disappoint. It has all kinds of products, including:

  • Razors and shaving cream
  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste, toothbrush,  and whitening strips
  • Shampoo

Many products are available as stand alone or part of a nice little kit. Granted, a lot of the brands are more male-oriented, but there are definitely things here that ladies can use. They are also launching a more female-oriented BeautyBar at a variety of malls across the country on September 5. They sent me a lovely bag of sample goodies from the BeautyBar, and I can tell you that there will be some great products in there. (Maybe one will end up in an airport sometime? We shall see!)

GroomingZones have been set up at DFW in Terminal C (near Gate 28), SFO Terminal G, and ATL Terminal C.  So if you have a few minutes, or forget your toothpaste, check it out next time you’re at one of these airports.


  1. A fun note, but please understand that this is hardly something new. During my brief but pleasant career in the hotel industry in the LATE 1960s, machines vending missed, lost/forgotten essentials were common. I recall a decent mix of gendered products to satisfy almost any need, including panty hose in multiple colors and sizes. While the prices were obscene, when you need it, you need it now. Since paper currency readers were unheard of in 1968, we kept a hefty supply of coins at the desk. The machine was not as cute as that in your pic and was not covered with brand names, but it did the job. The firm that operated the machines made a tidy profit, I’m sure!! Best wishes. -C.

  2. I avoid this by keeping a toiletry bag fully packed with my essentials. Every time I get home from a trip I replace what I used. It is ready to go at a moments notice.

    The toiletry bag is separate from what I use at home, so I never have to worry about trasferring things from home to bag to home again. I never have to worry about forgetting something, because it is already packed.

    MUCH easier to deal with.
