The second question to be answered from yesterday was regarding choice of shave soap or cream.
After giving this some thought, I decided to bring my tube of the Old Woodward Shave Co. brand of shave butter (additional photos and review here). My reasoning is that the Old Woodward shave butter gives a smooth, confidence-inspiring shave and has the following additional benefits for the traveler:

butter comes in both regular size (as shown) and also a travel size
(not shown). The bottle on the left is a pre-shave oil.
The tin-jar packaging on the right is no longer available.
- Available in regular- or travel-sized tubes for easy packing and storage on the go
- Applied with the fingers, so I don't have to pack a shaving brush
- Has an oil component, which is definitely not drying on the skin and leaves a slightly moisturizing residue if one merely rinses after the shave
So with a couple of good decisions regarding razor and shave-prep choices, I've also answered the third question about additional pre- and post-shave products to be packed; and the answer is none.
Happy shaving -- even when traveling!
