For Men Interested in Better Grooming, Beau Brummel Brand is Where to Start

There are your run-of-the-mill grooming brands that line drugstore shelves and then there’s Beau Brummel for Men, a young company based in New York that draws inspiration from a true fashion innovator (that would be Beau Brummel, naturally). Founded three years ago, the brand’s difference is one that can be seen across the board in a range of activated charcoal-based products, which its president, Zack Evar, says helps impart both a cool product color and, more importantly, major benefits for men’s skin.

Beau Brummel was a dandy himself but he didn’t have access to products like these (sorry, we just had to go there). The line is sulfate-free and guaranteed to deliver results right away — we should know, because we tried the products ourselves. For the guy who’s just getting into the grooming game, a brand like this could be just the place to start.

“Grooming is all about confidence. When you give yourself a little extra time each day to focus on self-care, you become an elevated version of yourself,” Evar said. “This extra time is the greatest gift you can give yourself, and it’s what Beau Brummell is all about.”

If that sounds like an ideal way to start your path toward better grooming, check out our favorite selections from the line below.

Beau Brummel Charcoal Facial Mask

Don’t be afraid to give your skin some extra care. The use of activated charcoal here helps purify your skin while also promoting what the brand calls “natural skin cell health.” In short, this invigorating face mask is just what your skin needs after a long day on the job.

Ever found a facial moisturizer you thought would work for you, and then realized that the finish is too, well, shiny? The Matte Finish Facial Moisturizer goes on light and, crucially, avoids that shiny finish.

Before you can put on the brand’s facial moisturizer, we’d recommend you use this facial scrub to liven up and refresh your mug with the help of its crushed walnut shells and other innovative ingredients.

The Best New Men’s Grooming Brands You Need to Know About

The men’s grooming category is growing, and we are not mad about it. While we’re certainly happy to see that more men are willing to go beyond a shower, shave, and a quick spray of deodorant, we can also see why a trip down the average drugstore aisle can become a minefield. It’s bad enough that some of our old favorites are expanding their product ranges to include everything from cleansers to moisturizers. It seems like there are new entries into the skincare product game every day. Stick with us. We’ll help you navigate through all that. Here are seven new collections we’re excited to share and one fun new entry into the toothbrush market. Author's note: We’ve tried just about all of these, and are so happy with the results, we’re having decision-making anxiety every morning before even stepping into the shower. 
Jack Henry

Jack Henry was introduced when founders Kyle and Erin Bardouche couldn’t find hair products that didn’t include tons of synthetic ingredients. The well-coiffed couple’s first introduction was OG Pomade, a blend of beeswax, coconut oil, and lavender. Since then. the brand has expanded to include an award-winning clay pomade, deodorant (with eucalyptus and bergamot), face toner, and much more.
