So, check out any of these 15 products—ranging from stocking stuffer to gifting centerpiece—to level up a grooming game.
1. Black Wolf Nation Bump Cream
Shaving every day is harsh on your skin and can inflame it, causing razor bumps and unsightly breakouts. But just dab a bit of this Black Wolf Nation cream on your freshly shorn stubble before moisturizing can flatten and alleviate bumps you already have, as well as prevent new ones from cropping up. A combo of an antimicrobial and salicylic acid fight the bacteria that contribute to razor bumps and cucumber extract and glycerin work to calm and soothe irritated skin.
2. Jack Black Beard Oil
Beards both burly and humble need nourishment, as does the skin underneath it. Jack Black’s remedy is this blend of melon, marula, and plum oils, which also carries extracts of brown algae and carrot. A couple drops will do everything from softening and taming stubborn stubble to preventing parched and peely skin. And on top of that, it delivers a healthy, lustrous shine.
