Men’s grooming and skincare products are now a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide. From facial creams to body washes, to shampoos, and even body wipes, men now have the same options in grooming products that women have had for decades. Personally, that sounds great, and for the most part, it is. However, knowing which products to purchase can help ease the pain of choosing from the multitude of brands and products.
Too many choices make for a full sink! But when it comes to grooming products, men want results without the confusion. Having too many options can certainly be overwhelming, costly, or intimidating, so much so that you ultimately choose nothing at all.
As we get ready to embrace the fall/winter season, managing editor, Corey Wesley went searching for the latest in men’s grooming products you could use in your life, but might not know about yet. This season Wesley found a few brands to share. He loves them all, some more than others. What you will love the most is each item on the list is unbelievably affordable.
Here are Wesley’s Top 4 Brands With Must Have Products:
If you’re not satisfied with your current body wash or still searching for “the one,” Every Man Jack will change that.
Every Man Jack offers simple to use, and affordable products, two things guys look for when purchasing grooming products. They cater to all men who are looking for a low-maintenance grooming routine.
Wesley tried their Eucalyptus Mint body wash, their shampoo, and he loved them both. Unlike other body washes the fragrance was not overpowering or unbearable, and the best part, the scent lasted.
Wesley recommends using a wash cloth or shower sponge instead of applying directly to the body to maximize usage. A little goes a long way. It also lathers very well and deeply to remove your body’s dirt and grime, but is never drying.
The packaging is masculine, woodsy, and looks like you purchased it from a high-end boutique. Wesley went into shock when finding out how affordable it is.
With over 20 complete solutions for all hair, body, and skin issues, this is an extensive collection of professional, high-quality, and dermatologist approved grooming essentials.

Spongelle is a chic brand that offers built-in-body wash buffers infused with exotic extracts, rich moisturizers, and gentle cleansers. Wesley loved their Men’s Super Buffer. It comes in an invigorating scent of Verbena Absolute and has a built in sponge with the body wash. Enriched with hydrating coconut oil and a blend of energizing extracts, this will help your skin feel smooth and clean after a long day at the office.
The cool part is that it’s a multifunctional buffer; serves as a body wash, scrub, and hydration all in one. Ideal for every skin type, all products are paraben free, cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.
Spongelle retails for $14 or $18 on www.Spongelle.com
Whether you’re in a hurry after work to meet friends, before that walk of shame home, or not comfortable showering at the gym; Wesley found a product that you will love. It’s a product that gives you the freedom to do more and feel good at the same time while remaining confident and fresh.
Goodwipes are a gender neutral body wipe offering guys a quick shower-on-the-go, including Below The Belt wipes for private parts. Featuring signature ingredients of aloe, tea-tree oil, peppermint and ginseng, these pH balanced wipes are 100% biodegradable and flushable after use.
Their wipes contain no harsh chemicals and are 100% biodegradable, unlike other wipe brands. They also include key ingredients: Soothing Aloe, Natural Tea Tree Oil, Cooling Peppermint, and Revitalizing Ginseng. These scents provide a sense of luxury and maturity, while their fun packaging also makes them stand out amongst other brands.

Ageism toward men in recent years has increased. As the men’s grooming industry continues to grow, the need for youthful looks has become something men worry about. In recent years, men are dealing with the unrealistic standard of beauty and youthfulness women have been dealing with for years.
Wesley found a new anti-aging skincare line for men, BOYFACE, that you have to try. Newly launched this month, this anti-aging skin care line for men is made by Billboard Music Award winning artist, Crystal Waters. This 5 product line is paraben-free and sustainably sourced from plant based ingredients without the use of animal byproduct or harsh chemicals. Plant stem cells, plant extracts, enzymes and natural oils work together to target specific skin issues such as wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, and ingrown hair.
Wesley tried the beard cleaner on his goatee. It’s easy to use, and at first he did not notice a difference. However, after several days of using the product he noticed a slight sheen, and a subtle softness to it albeit small. His first impression is so-so, but he is willing to stick with the brand. Next on his list from this brand is the Vitamin C Brightening Serum.
Insider Info: the line is launching two new collections this fall: Oil Defense and Acne Control, along with two new hair styling products and a fresh look/new additions to the Age-Defy collection.
Boyface retails between $28.99 – $44.99 on www.BoyfaceMe.com
