The Manual Grooming Awards 2022: The Absolute Best Grooming Products for Men
The Manual Grooming Awards

Anyone who thinks skincare is light work hasn't been inside The Manual when approaching our fourth annual Grooming Awards. For the 2022 edition, we tapped four of our most experienced writers and six grooming influencers. For more than six months, they squeezed, daubed, and scrubbed their way through a cornucopia of more than 700 products. Any wobble in quality or mediocr e results when tested? Into the rubbish bin of editorial excess. With picks in hand, these grooming experts entered into a March Madness-like playoff bracket, wheedling their picks against others in a no-holds-barred, winner-take-all struggle for inclusion. But in the end, just 18 products survived, rounding out this year's list of what editors and contributors feel are the best-of-the-best skincare, hair care, and body care products that got us through a long, hard year.

All of our Grooming Award-winning products are effective, of course, but they also share a certain economy (because if 13 months of coronavirus lockdown taught us anything, it's that money sure doesn't grow inside the house). They're also relatively accessible through Nordstrom and elsewhere, and none of them require you to charter a jet to Paris. So, if you've neglected your appearance over the last year and need a reset, or just want to see what's latest and greatest in grooming, The Manual's got you covered. With Covid-19 restrictions loosening, vaccinations rolling out, and both domestic and international travel already looking promising, it's time to get out there and shine. Our carefully selected products will help you do it brighter.

How To Wear Makeup To Look Your Most Handsome During Zoom Calls
how wear camera friendly makeup man applying facial cream

Maybe back in college you were the bad boy that decided to go crazy and wear “guy-liner” out to the club. Beyond that, though, the closest thing you’ve come to wearing makeup is smearing on some men's lip balm. You totally support gender nonconformity, and have never missed an episode of Drag Race, but beyond that, wearing cosmetics is just not on your radar. Or is it? Look at it differently: You’ve already accepted that taking good care of your skin — shaving carefully and using a serum and men's face moisturizers — can provide a competitive edge. After a late night, you’re even willing to use an eye cream or roller to tighten up those bags and dark spots under the eyes. In the past year most of us have also spent more time than we’d care to admit staring at our own faces on a Zoom call. That alone should be enough to make us reconsider our grooming routines. Wouldn't using a product to cover up pimples, rosacea, razor burn, or even to tone down gray hairs be a logical next step? Men's cosmetic skincare brands are making a bet that regular Joe is finally ready for his close-up.
