While there is a whole lot of money poured into marketing women’s personal grooming tools and products, men have been seeing quite the influx of like-minded products as of late. The world of personal grooming or “manscaping” as it’s called, is more than just a trend; it’s become a real lifestyle. Men are realizing that there are all kinds of products available to them that can make grooming faster, easier, and provide them with amazing results.
So where should you start? Here we’ll take a look at the top five manscaping products and tools you’ll want to pick up. Think of it as the manscaping starter’s kit if you will.
An electric shaver is an absolute must-have item for every man out there. Long gone are the days where you need to be dealing with razors and shaving cream. Not only is it messy, but you constantly have to be replacing your razor and/or blade as well as the shave cream. It’s also a great way to end up with cuts and nicks on your body and face.
Electric shavers are fast, simple, and very user-friendly. You can purchase models just meant for facial hair, or you can pick up a full-body electric shaver that looks after any unwanted hair or trimming needs from head to toe. This blog takes a look at the top electric shavers comparing top features like power, how it performs on sensitive skin, high-tech features, weight, the overall design, if it can be used wet and dry, how durable it is, and more.
Post-Shave Balm or Lotion
Once you finish shaving your face, it’s always a good idea to follow up with a post-shave balm or lotion. This doesn’t mean slapping your favorite cologne on your face, as this will only cause a burning sensation and most likely redness. Instead, after shave balms and lotions are designed to soothe the skin, calm any irritation or redness, and provide hydration. Just be sure to look for one that doesn’t contain alcohol.
If you have a beard or moustache, then beard oil is another must-have. This type of oil is meant to moisturize not just your facial hair, but also the skin underneath, making sure it stays soft and healthy. The end result is a shiny, lustrous looking beard and skin that won’t feel itchy and dry.
Exfoliating Body and Face Wash
Here’s a product that many men overlook, but is extremely important in the grooming routine. Exfoliating body and face washes help to get rid of dry, dead skin revealing smooth soft skin instead. Even if you only use these products a couple of times a week, the results will be worth it.
Finally, we have lip balm. No, it’s not just the women who suffer from dry chapped lips. Fellas, if you really want to impress the ladies, you want to be sure your lips look soft and kissable at all times. As an added tip, look for lip balm with SPF protection built in.

Each of these items performs a very specific task and will cover all your manscaping needs.
