Within the realm of grooming, there’s always some new and shiny product releasing. It’s hard to know which of the many products actually work, and which ones are worth the investment. We’ve done the groundwork for you, and have selected some must-have grooming products you really should consider.
7 Must-Have Grooming Products for Every Man
The Moisturizer: There’s a lot of miracle creams on the market that make big promises, but Augustinus Bader’s The Cream is the real deal. It’s a light cream that works with everyones skin type, for either morning or night routines. The Cream is made-up of aloe vera, amino acids and among other things, vitamins A,B,C and E.
The Serum: Throughout my 12+ years of beauty writing, I have never found a line that has given me better results than Drunk Elephant. Don’t let the comical name fool you, this line is packed full of active ingredients that work, and none of the filler stuff. Their C-Firms Day Serum is a vitamin-c filled complex that firms and brightens your skin.
The Shaving Cream: This is the most luxurious shaving cream you’ll ever use. Made with pomegranate seed oil, lemon oil, basil extract and hyaluronic acid, you’ll find your razor gliding across your face, suddenly to find your skin so much softer than when you began.
The Scent: Unlike anything you’ve ever sniffed, Memo Paris’ African Leather is a blend of bergamot, cardamom and among others, patchouli. It’s deep and rich notes are intoxicating. You can’t wear this without people stopping you, asking what it is. It’s spicy leather-like tones stay on the skin all day. Plus, the bottle looks beautiful sitting on your vanity.
The Cleanser: If you’re like me, nothing is worse than a face cleanser that leaves your skin still feeling oily or as if there’s residue. La Prairie’s Foam Cleanser deeply cleanses, but also hydrates. A little goes a long way, and leaves your skin feeling so refreshed.
The Sunscreen: Sunscreen is the most important item in your grooming arsenal. If you’re not wearing it, you might as well throw everything else away. I’m obsessed with Drunk Elephant’s Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense because it isn’t greasy and absorbs right away, even with product under it. It’s infused with raspberry seed and marula oils for hydration.
The Shampoo: Since it always starts from the top, make sure you land yourself a bottle of David Mallett’s Shampoo No.1 L’Hydration. It’s without an overpowering scent, but the macadamia nut oil found in this does wonders for your hair’s cuticle. Leaving your locks shining and moisturized.
