15 Grooming Essentials For Men

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, GROOMING By

We’re not suggesting you adopt a two hour morning routine, however, our female counterparts shouldn’t be the only ones spending quality time grooming their bodies. A little bit of extra care each day goes a long way towards a happier, healthier you. A man’s body is his temple, and must be properly maintained in order to look and perform at it’s best.

In honor of National Men’s Grooming Day, we’ve curated this list of 15 men’s grooming essentials to help get your morning grooming routine back up to speed.

Gillette5 Men's Razor

Gillette5 Men’s Razor

Gillette has long been the go-to brand when it comes to shaving with a cartridge razor, and the brand’s Gillette5 Razor lives up to the Gillette reputation. An integrated lubrication strip and 15 soft Microfins allow the razor’s 5 blades to glide smoothly across the skin for a close shave, while a front pivot mechanism transfers the pressure from your hand away from the blades for superior comfort. Finally, Gillette’s trademarked Aqua Grip handle allows for complete control of the razor within the damp confines of your shower. – Shop Now

Boogie's Pacific Hair Pomade

Boogie’s Pacific Hair Pomade

With Boogie’s Pacific Hair Pomade, you’re encouraged to “tame the wild” — that’s admirable advice if it’s a slick, classic look you seek, rather than something unruly.
