9 Grooming Products Every Guy Needs

Grooming 101: 9 Products Every Guy Needs

Historically, guys weren’t expected to know a lot about grooming. The basic expectations were to bathe somewhat regularly, brush your teeth a couple times a day, and use whatever razor was available to shave as often as the job you had dictated. These days, however, a lot more is required. You need to look better at work and you need to look better for women — and you probably wouldn’t mind less razor burn and hair that doesn’t stick up in weird directions.

If you want a really perfect shave, it helps to augment your shaving cream/gel with a pre-shave oil/gel. John Allan’s new “Slickwater” uses tea tree oil to help lift your pesky follicles for an even closer, non-damaging shave, and oat extract to reduce dreaded razor burn. Just massage it into your skin before lathering up — or if you want the same kind of experience you’d get in one of John Allan’s hair salons, have a smoking-hot stylist do it for you.
