We can’t stress this enough: men’s grooming is just as important to your mental health and well-being as exercise is. To that end, we are here to offer you guidance on the latest grooming products, what you need to have in your cabinet, and how to use it. Below are five men’s grooming products that you absolutely need this week.


Scotch Porter Restoring Face Wash

This newly reformulated Restoring Face Wash from one of the few grooming lines for men of color, Scotch Porter, is a foaming face wash that is gentle yet extremely effective. The all natural ingredients – licorice root, natural sugars, and turmeric – are concocted to create the most hydrating and healing face wash there ever was. This product minimizes the chance of breakouts and has an additional citrus scent profile that can make anyone feel fresh and sleek. It gently removes impurities, while also containing blemish-fighting qualities and lathers easily. This product doubles as a beard wash and keeps acne at bay. It’s got it all!

SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex

SkinCeuticals’ A.G.E. Eye Complex is a treatment that works miracles with instant anti-aging benefits to the area around your eyes (it’s the area that suffers the most!). It utilizes optical diffusers that reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eye, and works over time as a long-term solution that improves said circles and puffiness. With a unique combination of key ingredients such as blueberry extract, flavonoids, and synergistic peptides, it helps diminish the appearance of dark circles while reinforcing the look of firmness and tone in the eye area.

Loops Night Shift Mask

Loops’ masks are specially made using thick hydrogel that easily clings to the skin and retains a large amount of liquid. This mask powers you up as you wind down after a long day of being online in front of your screen, so it works its magic while you sleep soundly. It repairs and replenishes, using restoring collagen, as well as nutrient-rich cacti extract. On top of that, the use of rosemary, peppermint, and lavender helps soothe your body and ease you into better and more restful sleep. It’s a win-win situation!

Jack Henry Clay Pomade

For an all-day effortless thickness and texture to your hair, this 4-ingredient Clay Pomade is sure to eliminate any greasiness or crunchiness. It delivers a matte finish along with a workable feel, and on top of that it’s sweat-resistant. Jack Henry is a clean grooming brand that got its fame after this very Clay Pomade, so we highly recommend adding this product to your grooming routine.

Gillette SkinGuard Razor

The Gillette SkinGuard razor comes highly recommended – it minimizes blade contact with sensitive skin, is clinically proven to prevent skin irritation after a shave, and is especially useful for men with coarse hair. Its comb-like guard placed between the blades is a surefire way to get the best results while avoiding all the downsides of shaving. This is especially great for daily shaving without having to lose sleep over razor bumps.
