Trust us when we say that you do not have enough skin, hair, beard, or body to test all the latest men’s grooming product on the market. Now a multi-billion dollar yearly industry, men’s grooming has gone the route of the women’s market and amped up its offerings 10-fold. How can one man try 50 shaving creams or 40 moisturizers?
But if he doesn’t test them, how does he know what works for him?
He comes to The Manual.
We’ve got enough skin and hair to try every lotion, potion, and pomade out there. And we did.
Last year, we brought you 20 of the best men’s grooming products, from razors to shampoo and everything in between.
This year, we solicited product samples from dozens of men’s grooming brands (large and small) and spent two and a half months testing each and everyone out on ourselves — over 100 in all. We graded each product in a variety of fields, including effectiveness, ease of use, price, fragrance, and ingredients.
Some products were great but too expensive for a normal guy to afford; others were inexpensive and terrible; still others were inexpensive and worked wonders. When it came down to choosing the winners, we gave price and effectiveness more weight during final consideration. In the end, we came to what we believed to be generally agreed upon winners in categories ranging from sunscreen to conditioner to eye cream.
Eighteen great men’s grooming products you can, but definitely shouldn’t live without.
Come back on Tuesday, March 26 when The Manual Grooming Awards 2019 make their official debut to not only get the scoop on the best of the best but also to enter for your chance to win each and every single recommended product.
Until then, stay handsome.
