I know, the guys often get neglected. If your guy is anything like mine he refuses to use products. Ok, I’ll give it to him that most products he doesn’t need. He has perfect skin (gah so hard to be married to him!) and doesn’t need shaving products as he he doesn’t really grow huge amounts of facial hair. He also doesn’t need hair products as he cuts his hair REALLY short weekly.
For the Guys….
So what’s a girl to do? Well I asked my husband which products he wanted to try out and like a good sister let my brother try out the rest 😉
Fusion ProGlide Styler by Gillette
My brother tried this one out. Apparently you can “style” your facial hair with this one. Goatee or thin chinstrap (I don’t even know what this is!) – he chose to go with a clean shave. This product is pretty cool you are able to use it in the shower as it’s completely waterproof. I’m going to assume you need a (fog proof) mirror to use this in the shower too? Haha – obviously I’m not a men’s grooming expert! My brother really liked this product, he said it was really precise and easy to use and he got good results. The only thing he noticed is that after only a couple uses the blade began to pull so he wasn’t getting as clean a shave.
Along with the styler he tried out this Clear Shave Gel which he enjoyed using. It was really different as it was clear as opposed to the expected blue gel or foam. He just had some issues getting the product out. Not sure if it was just his bottle that was defective but the cap wouldn’t open easily.
My brother also tried out this shampoo. He doesn’t have a dandruff problem (or so he tells me) but this shampoo did its job and smelled good. That’s really all guys care about right?
Here’s a product I was actually able to get my husband to try. The key here were the words “Fast Absorbing”. He complains all the time about how dry his skin is but he also complains about how sticky he feels after applying the lotions I give him. FINALLY I was able to get him to apply lotion everyday and he actually said to me all surprised “hey that lotion really works”. Well of course it works, all you have to do is put it on!
Without too much arm twisting the one product that is easy to get my husband to try (ok, besides deodorant) is a body wash. In this case it was a body and face wash but he only uses it for his body. (He attributes his perfect skin to only wiping it with witch hazel !!!!!!). Who doesn’t love the fresh clean feeling after the shower and the “extra fresh” scent doesn’t hurt too 😉
I would LOVE for you to share with me what products your guy uses. And any recommendations you think my guy would be willing to try!
