Talk about genius. The Jack Black Turbo Wash Energizing Cleanser for Hair and Body ($48.99) does it all and makes showers even quicker than usual—and chances are he takes a pretty quick shower already. This heady blend contains notes of eucalyptus, rosemary, and juniper berry, all vibrant ingredients that will wake him up on those bleary-eyed mornings and get him ready for a long day at work. It’s even great for allergy sufferers; eucalyptus is reportedly very effective for clearing sinus passageways. What better way to start the day than with this skin- and hair-smoothing product?
Shaving is a necessary evil, but any man will tell you that the ouch factor is the realevil here. Enter Murad Man Razor Burn Rescue ($28.99), a healing cream that helps soothe razor burn, bumps, and irritation caused by shaving. Smooth it directly onto freshly shaved skin to achieve a softer finish. Neem and tea tree oil work together to prevent ingrown hair and reduce bacteria, leaving skin clearer over time. (And if you happen to nick your skin while shaving, feel free to apply it, too!)
If he’s not the type to run out and buy fragrances for himself, do him a favor and slip a bottle of Johnny B Noon After Shave Spray ($12.89) into his stocking. This vibrant scent contains invigorating notes of bergamot, cedar wood, and sage, all guaranteed to lift his spirits in the middle of a long, tiring day. It also smoothes skin and leaves it baby soft—and also has anti-bacterial properties to keep skin healthy.
If he’s a stickler for a perfect mustache, if he could use a little help with his tools. If he says yes, you must introduce him to Tweezerman Mustache Scissors ($11.99). They’re designed with comfort and precision in mind, from the large yet practically sized finger loops (which provide a more firm, controlled grip) to the long-lasting stainless steel. It’s easy to keep them clean, too, and they won’t rust or damage with time.
