Want to up your grooming game this year? Whether you want to look your best at work or make a great impression on a first date, one thing is certain: The right grooming products make all the difference.
That’s why today we’re going to share the 42 best men’s grooming products in 2022 to enhance your grooming arsenal so you can look and feel your best.
1. Blu Atlas Shave Cream & Aftershave
Whether you go with the bare face look or just trim down to your stubble, one thing is for sure: The right pre-shave and post-shave products can make all the difference. That’s why we want to start things off by highlighting Blu Atlas shave cream and aftershave.
This tandem will transform the shave you’re capable of attaining. By using the shaving cream, you can reduce inflammation and the likelihood of nicks and cuts. This soothing cream belongs in any well-groomed man’s arsenal. But you can really set yourself apart from the rest of the field by following up with the aftershave. This highly fragrant post-shave treatment will have you smelling incredible all day long. It also soothes and hydrates that delicate face skin with shea butter and aloe leaf, alleviating any post-shave irritation.
Blu Atlas offers 100% natural, vegan products that can take your grooming game to the next level. The best part? You can try their products with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
2. Manscaped Lawn Mower
Speaking of shaving, let’s talk about the #1 below-the-belt grooming essential, the Manscaped Lawn Mower. This product is a must for any man who needs to tame their mane…downstairs.
This third-generation model features a waterproof, ergonomic design that makes shaving a breeze. It uses skin-safe technology that protects you from nicks and cuts. You can’t put a price tag on that.
3. Oars + Alps Natural Face Moisturizer + Eye Cream
There is nothing more uncomfortable—and unsightly—than dry, irritating facial skin. That’s why you need to make moisturizing a part of your daily grooming routine. And that starts with the right moisturizer. For that, we recommend the Oars + Alps Natural Face Moisturizer + Eye Cream.
This brand is all about producing quality, safe, natural products. This lotion is free of alcohol, artificial fragrance, parabens, phthalates, and parabens, opting for natural ingredients like shea butter, jojoba oil, aloe, and alpine caribou moss. These work together to promote skin elasticity and guard against environmental stressors while locking in essential moisture. This lightweight formula absorbs quickly and never leaves you feeling greasy. It’s unscented too, which is our personal preference when it comes to moisturizers.
4. Byrd Hydrating Body Wash
Cleaning your body is important, but most men’s body washes are too harsh, containing ingredients nobody can pronounce. That’s why we love Byrd Hydrating Body Wash. This product is gentle, sulfate-free, and effectively cleanses away dirt and grime. But unlike most body washes, it does this without stripping away essential, natural oils from the skin.
The formula is powered by sea kelp, green tea, aloe vera, red algae, and more. All of these natural, plant-based ingredients work wonders to not just clean but also hydrate and protect your skin. With a refreshing out-of-the-ocean feel and a salty coconut scent, this is a perfect choice for the tropical man.
5. Hims Hair Kit
For many of us men, our pride and joy is our hair. Some of us even consider our hair to be our most defining characteristic. So it’s not surprising that we are going to put the Hims Hair Kit near the top of our list of grooming essentials. If you care about your hair, then you need to work hard to keep it. Just shampooing and conditioning won’t cut it, especially as you age.
To prevent hair loss and encourage a thick, full mane, you need medicated treatments like finasteride, minoxidil, a medicated shampoo, and vitamins. If you notice that your hairline is receding, your crown looks a bit thin, or your shower and sink are filled with more hair than usual, add this personalized kit to your grooming routine.
6. Layrite Cement Clay
Speaking of hair, if you aren’t using a quality styling clay, chances are you are in dire need of a hairstyle overhaul. That’s why we love Layrite Cement Clay. It makes styling your hair easy and safe with healthy, natural ingredients derived from plants. But what makes it so special? How is it different from other styling clays or gels?
It’s the strength. This formula delivers a clean matte finish that lasts the entirety of your day. Your hair will still be looking sharp at the end. Unlike other clays, it won’t weigh you down or dry your hair, causing flaking. And, the mild cream scent is amazing.
7. Every Man Jack Shave Gel
Every Man Jack’s Shave Gel is another great choice for your shaving regimen. This formula is fragrance-free and made with aloe to lubricate and protect your face. Also, Vitamin E and soothing chamomile help to attain a perfect, close shave without any irritation.
It’s made ethically here in the US and is free of harmful chemicals like parabens, dyes, and phthalates. And at just $10, it’s a great budget buy.
8. Cremo Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant
How you smell is perhaps more important than how you look. And if you’re still using your drug store Old Spice or Axe deodorant, it’s time for a serious upgrade.
Opt for a more masculine, natural scent by Cremo. Their Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant collection features a wide range of pleasant fragrances. These deodorants and antiperspirants work well to protect against both odor and sweat, keeping you fresh all day long.
9. 18.21 Man Made Beard, Hair, and Skin Oil
Want a product that does it all in terms of moisturization? Look no further than 18.21 Man Made Beard, Hair, and Skin Oil. One of the most versatile grooming products on our list, it helps hydrate and nourish your beard, hair, and skin, all in one formula!
It’s powered by ingredients like coconut oil, castor oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, and essential oils that deliver a remarkable fragrance. With hints of oud, spiced vanilla, and mahogany, this masculine-scented oil nourishes and hydrates you from head to toe.
10. Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm
Chapped, cracking lips don’t just hurt—they’re ugly, too. That’s why you need to make lip care part of your grooming regimen. Just any old chapstick won’t suffice, though. We prefer Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm.
This natural formula features mint and shea butter to gently moisturize your delicate lip skin. It also protects against the sun with an SPF rating of 25. Powerful antioxidants help guard against other stressors like wind and cold. Keep a few of these around and you’ll never worry about cracked lips again!
11. Claus Porto Alface Bar Soap
This relatively underground men’s grooming brand has been quietly producing some of the finest grooming essentials for over 130 years, and their bar soap is changing the game.
Even if you prefer gels and liquid soaps, this bar soap is worth a look. It helps awaken your senses and brighten up your mornings with a joyful, invigorating cleanse. The scent is incredibly natural and masculine, with notes of bergamot, lemon, grapefruit, green leaf, cedar, musk, amber, and more. And the shea oil will leave your skin nourished and hydrated.
12. Harry’s Post-Shave Balm
After shaving, your face needs a little bit of help. Harry’s Post-Shave Balm calms everything back down and soothes your irritated skin after you shave. It features natural aloe vera and cucumber extract that leave behind a cooling effect on your skin. It’s quick-drying and never leaves your skin looking or feeling shiny.
13. NIVEA MEN Breathable Body Lotion
Make dry, flaking skin a thing of the past with NIVEA MEN Breathable Body Lotion. This body lotion is a thing of beauty, formulated with powerhouse ingredients such as shea butter and vitamins C & E. Together, these nourish and hydrate your skin all day long without feeling heavy or greasy.
It’s specifically formulated for men who live an active lifestyle but want to stay fresh and flake-free. With a 4.6-star rating across over 3,700 reviews, this is a well-respected product to add to your roster.
14. Blu Atlas Exfoliating Scrub
Not nearly enough men recognize the importance of a proper exfoliant. If you don’t use one, you’re letting your pores sit clogged with dry, dead skin and other impurities. That’s why we highly encourage every man to pick up a small tub of Blu Atlas Exfoliating Scrub.
It will help eradicate built-up impurities with natural ingredients including hibiscus, jojoba, and bamboo stem. Blu Atlas considers this product to be a natural, gentle powerwash for your face, and once you make it part of your regular routine, you’ll wonder why you waited so long.
15. Olivina Men Hand Rescue
Active men struggle with dry, cracking hands, especially during those colder times of the year. You can make this uncomfortable, unsightly issue a thing of the past with Olivina Men Hand Rescue. It is certified organic and offers complete relief for tired, weathered hands. It uses organic olive oil and leaves behind a delicious cedar and bergamot scent. You’ll finally be able to shake hands with confidence!
16. New York Biology Dead Sea Mud Mask
We know a lot of men are probably scoffing at the idea of doing a face mask, but if you want to reduce pore size and eliminate acne, blackheads, and oily skin, New York Biology Dead Sea Mud Mask is a must-see. This grooming essential tightens your skin and leaves behind a healthier complexion with ingredients like Dead Sea mineral mud, aloe vera, calendula oil, jojoba oil, and more. This detoxifying, purifying face mask is a must-try.
17. Aesop Parsley Seed Antioxidant Intense Serum
Aesop is one of the leading men’s grooming brands. Their products aren’t cheap, but you get what you pay for. And today, we want to specifically highlight the Aesop Parsley Seed Antioxidant Intense Serum.
Formulated with panthenol, niacinamide, and bisabolol, this serum offers remarkable hydration and replenishment for your skin. It works great even on sensitive skin and will leave you more moisturized and guarded against airborne particulates.
18. Imperial Barber Pre-Shave Oil
You’ve likely tried shaving cream, but have you ever tried shaving oil? If not, you are missing out! Imperial Barber Pre-Shave Oil is a conditioning protectant that helps you get that perfect shave without the risk of irritation. It offers a wide array of antioxidants to leave your skin healthier with each application. And, it helps you achieve an effortless shave as your blade glides across your face with ease.
19. Pacific Shaving Company Clean Facial Wash
When you hear the name Pacific Shaving Company, you might assume we’re going to showcase another shaving essential. Instead, we want to talk about their Facial Wash. Perfect for sensitive skin, this gentle and soothing formula features sea salt, aloe vera, glycerin, and more.
It is 100% fragrance-free, perfect for the man who wants to apply his own fragrance after washing his face or prefers to go all-natural. At just under $10, this vegan, USA-made formula is among the best face washes on the market.
20. Armani Code
Earlier, we stated that the way you smell is perhaps more important than how you look. And if you want to smell your best and make a statement in every room you enter, Armani Code is the cologne for you. This Eau de Toilette is widely considered among the top fragrances on the market. It features seductive notes of bergamot, citrus, and wood. This is an excellent choice for the sophisticated man who appreciates the timeless things in life.
21. Bulldog Original Beard Balm
It’s not enough to just put some oil in your beard and call it a day. To smooth everything out and help cover up patchy areas, you need Bulldog Original Beard Balm. This balm can help soften and style even the most unruly beard.
It features aloe vera, camelina oil, and green tea to help make itchy, untamed beards a thing of the past. And at just $10, this tub is a great bargain buy. It will last you a long while even with daily use.
22. Bulk Homme The Face Wash
Yes, it comes in a bag which might lead you to believe this is a cheap face wash. But make no mistake. Bulk Homme The Face Wash is among the best on the market. It’s won countless awards and boasts an impressive repertoire of reviews. Bulk Homme has perfected this formula with balanced and nourishing ingredients that work together to eliminate dirt and unnecessary oil, leaving your face feeling soft and poreless.
23. Blu Atlas Restorative Eye Stick
So few men pay attention to the health of their delicate under-eye skin. This is the area where you’ll start to show the signs of aging first. As such, we just had to feature the Blu Atlas Anti-Aging Eye Stick as one of our 42 best men’s grooming products in 2022.
And once you see the results it offers your skin firsthand, you’ll understand why. It eradicates dark circles and puffy, tired eyes with ease using algae extract, vitamin C, and caffeine. These ingredients also stimulate collagen production, helping increase skin elasticity and youthful glow.
24. Brickell Resurfacing Anti-Aging Cream
While the Blu Atlas Eye Stick is the best for anti-aging results on your under-eye skin, the Brickell Resurfacing Anti-Aging Cream is perhaps the best for the rest of your skin. This cream is a potent approach to reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and brightening skin tone.
You can use it daily to keep your skin looking young and healthy. That’s because it’s gentle, despite being very potent and effective. It’s clinically proven to work, so despite the $50 price tag, this cream is well worth the money.
25. MARLOWE Original Water Pomade
Do you feel like your hair styling game could use a little help? If so, the MARLOWE Original Water Pomade is a must-try. This paraben and phthalate-free product is cruelty-free and made right here in the USA under strict standards.
All of this helps ensure an effective, gentle, and safe formula. It works well for just about any hair type and offers a medium to strong hold. With a slick finish, you’ll have all eyes on you as you step into any room.
26. Sauvage by Dior
Sauvage by Dior is widely considered among the top men’s fragrances each and every year, which is an impressive feat. At $160 for a small 2.0 oz bottle, this may be out of some men’s price range, but what price tag can you put on being the best smelling man in any room?
Plus, it’s highly concentrated, so you can stretch that bottle over a long time. With a grapefruit note and heart of spices, we consider this to be the best cologne for men if money is no object.
27. Hawthorne Face Cleanser
If you find that most face cleansers leave you feeling tight and dry, this Hawthorne Face Cleanser is a great choice. It’s incredibly gentle and fragrance-free. With natural, calming ingredients like aloe vera and Centella Asiatica, you’ll enjoy a clean that doesn’t irritate your skin at all.
This non-drying formula is free of sulfates, parabens, silicones, phthalates, and it’s also cruelty-free. With a satisfaction guarantee, this product is 100% risk-free.
28. Versace Pour Homme
Another remarkable fragrance you can consider is Versace Pour Homme. With a slightly less unaffordable price tag of $70, this pick is great for those ballin on a budget. It still offers an incredibly aromatic scent that will have people getting closer to you to get another whiff.
The woody fragrance also features notes of geranium, sage, musk, amber, rose, bergamot, lemon, and more. The goal of this cologne was to craft a representation of the knowledgeable, self-confident man. If that sounds like you, this fragrance is a no-brainer.
29. Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20
