Special Report: Five Grooming Products Every Man Needs

What’s in a man’s medicine cabinet says a lot about him. Tell your story with these five simple but very necessary products.

manicure & manscape
Whatever your take on manscaping, it’s no secret that a little trim can go a long way. The Braun MG5090 Electric Shaver features three attachments for head, body and face. The portable device comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts an entire shave after charging for just 5 minutes. The twistable trimmer can handle even the sneakiest of beard contours while the extra-wide shaver head extends the surface to manicure more strands in fewer strokes.

wash, rinse, repeat
A man’s face wash serves two purposes: to clean and to prep skin for shaving. The Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash checks both boxes thanks to ingredients like menthol, caffeine and citrus extract that prepare the skin for a less irritated, more comfortable shave. It also protects against environmental stress and makes dull skin look new again.

protect & hydrate
Keeping skin properly moisturized and protected from the sun’s harmful rays is paramount to every skin care routine, man or woman. Fresh has a Black Tea Age-Delay Lotion with SPF 20 that uses black tea, lychee and blackberry leaf extracts to keep skin hydrated and healthy, while the broad spectrum sunscreen works to ward off sun damage. The lotion feels relatively weightless, so it’s easy to layer with other lotions and serums.

classic cologne
If you want your medicine cabinet to make a statement, look no further than Creed. The French-made, London-based perfume company has established itself as one of the world’s premier luxury fragrance dynasties. Aventus is the brand’s best-selling scent. Notes of bergamot, pinkberry and musk are the perfect combination of sweet meets sensual.

daily ritual
A floss a day keeps the dentist away. Remember that the next time you feel too lazy to do it! Floss should be an essential commodity in every medicine cabinet, no matter how many times a day you brush your teeth. The mint-flavored Gum Professional Clean Flossers are (in my opinion) easier to use than traditional floss and will leave your breath tasting minty fresh.
