The one-stop shopvia kiehls.com
Guys love simplicity, which is why they’ll want to check out the double-duty beauty products that will save time and money. Or choose the brand that’s been called the “gateway drug” for men when they start to care about what they put on their face—Kiehl’s. The brand’s facial Fuel line has a long list of devotees and carries an energizing face wash ($9 to $58), a non-oily facial moisturizer ($25 to $42), an all-in-one hair and body wash ($8 to $50) and eye de-puffer ($20), among other products. Any upgrades to Kiehl’s products will make you wonder why you haven’t done this earlier.

For exfoliating, Jack Black’s Turbo Body Bar Scrubbing Soap gently polishes skin with natural lava rock. It’s similar to the pore-cleaning miracle ingredient that Korean beauty stores can’t keep in stock. It’s also $15 soap on a rope, which is easy to hang in your shower when it’s not in use. Although a bar of soap is fine, a nice body wash can elevate your shower time. Plant Apothecary’s GET HAPPY Organic Bodywash looks like a bottle of glue, but it actually is an all-natural, honey-like gel that smells like peppermint and geranium. For under $20, the smell will give you a good pick-me-up in the morning.
