Bear in mind that most of the products usually provided in the J travel kit, SQ provides in the lavatory. SQ's J "travel kit" (such as it is) only contains a pair of socks and an eye mask (and maybe some ear plugs?). Toothbrush, toothpaste, creams, etc., are all in the lavatory.
Yes, on LH and LX you'll get a tin pencil box. On SQ you must stuff the toiletries into your pockets! But there is a huge difference in the J/C seats between the two (even three) carriers. SQ's takes some getting used to while the LH one is among the least successful sleeper seats. LX's is quite unique while OS is a fairly generic sort.
