Most men aren’t very easy to shop for. Either they are so uncomplicated it’s impossible to come up with ideas, or else they are interested in such ‘guy’ stuff it’s hard to get the right thing. And as someone who loves bath and body products, it’s far more enjoyable to shop in my ‘comfort zone’ area for the men in my life – much more fun than trying to figure out ice fishing equipment or car parts.
Thank goodness Mensgroom is out there. Mensgroom’s slogan is “simple products for simple creatures…men.” Their manly grooming products are excellent and very affordable. I had my husband test these out for several weeks, and he certainly milked every second of my ‘inspections’. The final conclusion? These are fantastic stocking stuffers for the guys in your life.
Daily Wash Out Shampoo ($6.99) is a great 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner.
There is no way my husband is going to use conditioner, but it really helps give his hair some softness. At the same time, I was a little leery of the Daily Wash Out Shampoo because many 2 in 1 shampoos can be heavy and weigh hair down (something someone with slightly thinning hair does not want – don’t tell my husband I said that. He still insists it’s ‘just a colick’.) But this is an excellent 2 in 1, it has Barley Protein, Vitamin B5 and Zinc PCA to cleanse, strengthen, and condition the hair. It has a light, clean scent that is manly but far from overpowering.
Daily Shower Power ($8.99) is Mensgroom’s shower gel.
My hubby is a die-hard soap fan, so I didn’t think he was going to like this. I was pretty amazed – he loves it. It’s more gentle on the skin than regular soap, and it foams up just as nicely. It smells like the outdoors, but again, the scent is light. The only problem with this is my husband keeps stealing my shower pouf. I need to find him a manly one so he will leave my pink pouf alone!
You will want to get Shave the Males ($7.99) for the name alone.
Isn’t it the best?? This is a wonderful, lightly scented shaving cream that doesn’t irritate sensitive skin. It’s thick and creamy like a shaving cream should be, and it leaves skin soft and moisturized. It’s a winner.
