    Manscaped

    Promising review: "I don't need heavily perfumed body washes that don't do the job. I just need a non-drying cleanser that WORKS. And Crop Cleanser does the job with no problem!

    Promising review: "I use this every day on my face or hair. I put this on before applying shaving cream and it helps my sensitive skin from getting irritated. I also have thick, slightly frizzy, greying hair, and this tames it. I put it on my hair and leave it in after I get out of the shower and have washed my hair. The difference in the texture of my hair and the way it acts with this in is amazing. I usually put one to two pumps, depends on if it's summer and my hair is really short or winter when it's longer. You may have to experiment a bit to find the right amount for you." —Jim

    Get it from Amazon for $34.

    4. Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Dry Antiperspirant Spray has 48-hour powerful sweat and odor protection to keep you smelling clean and fresh all day.

    Amazon

    This product is formulated without parabens or dyes.

    Promising review: "Works as expected, I have tried most of the natural deodorant and they expire in about six to eight hours, Dove stays on, keeping in mind I am a fairly active individual doing CrossFit and playing competitive badminton. I prefer the 'clean' smell. When using, it feels like you are just spraying on air." —Ajay Nair

    Get it from Amazon for $5.89.

    5. Baxter of California Clay Pomade is a wax that'll hold and define even the thickest of hair with a strong matte finish.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Oh my god this clay is the best of the clays. Seriously, I've tried so many clays, and they've all done the job for sure, but I have thick hair that sometimes requires upkeep halfway through the day. This clay has some serious hold without actually weighing down my hair. An hour after applying it, I can run my fingers through my hair and it feels like there's no product there. It would take a hell of a product to take me away from this clay as my daily user." — Scott Dobyns

    Get it from Amazon for $21.85.

    6. Scotch Porter Hydrate & Nourish Beard Conditioner is made of all natural ingredients to deep condition dry and unruly facial hair, all while preventing shedding and giving your beard the ultimate shine.

    Scotch Porter

    This product is formulated without parabens, silicones, petroleum, mineral oil, or artificial colors.

    Promising review: "Gave this conditioner a go, and I was definitely pleased on how soft it made my beard. Since I started using this over six months ago, it has changed the way my beard tolerates being dry — instead of getting brittle and itchy, it just feels more coarse." —Jaeger W.

    Get it from Scotch Porter for $20.

    7. Anthony Skincare Ingrown Hair Treatment kills bacteria after shaving and frees the trapped hair under your skin. It'll also help reduce razor bumps and inflammation.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Worked great. Had an ingrown hair in a difficult spot for the LONGEST time that would never come out. This brought it out within the week along with the infection. Sure it may be a little pricey but if you want that thing gone and done right the first time, buy this product. Should also note that I use this whenever an area on my face gets red/inflamed and it calms it down amazingly. Pleasantly surprised to find a product that does what it says it does." —Wajster

    Get it from Amazon for $30.72.

    8. Brickell Men’s Restoring Eye Balm is infused with caffeine to eliminate and reduce puffiness, dark circles, and wrinkles for brighter looking eyes.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to buy this as it is two times what I am used to paying for eye cream. I received this package today and tried it on for the first time and was shocked at how well this works. I've been using my previous cream for years with small gains but let me tell you, this stuff is amazing and is worth the money. I saw immediate results from the puffy bags under my eyes in literally minutes. I couldn't believe it. If you have bags from kids, busy work life, fun nights out, insomnia, etc. Buy it! You won't regret it!" —MN Boulevard

    Get it from Amazon for $40.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "My husband loves this beard balm. It has a pleasant light scent that we both like. It is more of a cream than a balm but worked great with his beard. Very happy with it and will be researching other Bulldog products now." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.64 (available with four other product options).

    Promising review: "As a first-time beard-grower, I started using this product a few times a week and I'm very happy with the results. My beard is not very long (approximately two inches in length) but it has been looking healthier and feeling more soft while keeping a consistent and pleasant after-shower smell. Overall, Jack Black's facial products have not disappointed me and I don't see myself switching to any other product anytime soon." —Armand

    Promising review: "I got this for my husband and he absolutely loves it. He hasn't been able to really wash his beard since using shampoo in it isn't good and this really got it clean! He said it has a nice cooling sensation to it. After rinsing it out his beard was smelling and feeling great. He has used it twice, only took very little each use so this will last. He will for sure repurchase!" —Paigelee

    Get it from Ulta for $22.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Some of the best hair product I have ever used. I have thick curly/wavy hair and I hate using pomade or anything shiny in my hair. It just doesn't fit my style. This clay helps shape my hair and keep it in place. That whole 'bedhead look but you know it's on purpose' look. I will continue to get this any time I need some clay. It smells great too!" —adam bullet

    Get it from Amazon for $13.27.

    15. Naturenics Grooming Kit gives you everything you need to maintain your facial hair, skin, and have a well-kept beard without having to buy a ton of different products.

    Amazon

    It includes a handcrafted magnetic bamboo box, unscented beard oil, unscented beard/mustache wax, a horsehair brush, a pair of stainless steel Japanese beard scissors and a PDF e-book.

    Promising review: "I have been using this product for just about a week now. So far, I am very impressed with it. Both the oil and the balm are very high quality and deliver lots of moisture to my skin and beard. The comb is great, and once seasoned, doesn’t pull much, if any, product out of my beard. The scissors are sharp and do their job. The bristled brush is a bit stiff at first but is doing a great job straightening and laying down the hairs on my cheeks." —Nic

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99.

    17. Cremo Company Original Shave Cream gives you a slippery buffer between the sharp blade and your sensitive skin for an effortless shave with no irritation.

    instagram.com

    This product has over 2,000 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful item to shave with. I shave my head all the time, and with this shave cream, I get a very close shave. Don't expect it foam up when applying. That's not what it's supposed to do. It will give you the closest shave possible, provided you just follow the instruction. I use a dime-sized amount in the palm of my hand, which is plenty. Using that amount will last a long time. Now knowing how well it works first hand, I wish I had bought two instead of one. Happy shaving." —Bonecrusher

    Get it from Amazon for $14.24 (comes in a two-pack).

    18. Honest Amish Beard Balm Leave-in Conditioner softens, conditions, and repairs dry and splitting beard hairs while promoting new hair growth.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The hardest part of finding a beard balm I liked was finding one which had a scent my wife and kids enjoy and Honest Amish beard balm is that product. I have moderately coarse and dry hair and after a hot shower, I apply about a dime-sized amount to my dry/damp beard. Too much will make my hair too shiny, but the correct amount leaves it soft and manageable." — HIM916

    Get it from Amazon for $10.86.

    19. Lab Series Skincare for Men Multi-Action Face Wash exfoliates, conditions, and cleans your face of dirt and oil for an overall healthier and brighter appearance.

    Nordstorom

    Promising review: "My husband won’t keep using a face wash he doesn’t like. He’s on his full size after completing a sample size of this cleanser. I tried it too, and it’s got just the right amount of exfoliation for daily use. It’s gentle but tough enough for facial hair if you’ve got it. The scent is mild and energizing." —BJorg

    Get it from Nordstrom for $26.

    20. Old Spice Sculpting Pomade polishes and smooths hair with a moderate hold that'll tame any hairstyle with a matte finish.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Really like this stuff. It works well with my thick hair and doesn't leave it sticky." —Zdub

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97 (available in six other product types).

    21. Cleanfly Ear and Nose Trimmer comes with four different trimmer heads to gently remove unruly hair from your nose, ears, eyebrows, and sideburns without the painful cutting or pulling feeling. And it's also waterproof and rechargeable!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised at the power of this model. I have had others in the past that would last a short time on a charge and struggle with minimum trimming. I actually love this thing! It's lightweight and slim and not at all bulky, which will make it convenient for traveling. The attachments are easy to pop off and secure on with a click. The beard trimmer, sideburn trimmer, and ears/nose trimmer are working really well and serving their purpose. The battery has continued to be charged through several uses and has yet needed to be charged. For the price, this really can't be beat." —Elizabeth Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    22. And The Art of Shaving Peppermint Oil Beard Wash moisturizes and rejuvenates your beard and skin jojoba seed oil and olive oil — and it has an invigorating scent.

    Promising review: "Purchased this for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it. It smells SO good and makes his beard softer too!" —Goodin1058

    Get it from Sephora for $15.
