10 Skincare Essentials

Jack Black MP10 Nourishing Oil

Taking care of your skin this winter doesn’t mean you need more bathroom counter space. This multi-purpose nourishing oil – that combines argan, organic marula and grape seed oils – can be used on your face, beard and hair. The lightweight but concentrated formula cleans deeply and relieves winter weather maladies like irritation, dryness and flakiness.

Jack Black, $32

Kaufman Mecantile Valobra Primula Facial Soap

Regular soap can dry your face out the second open air hits it. The hydrating oils (like lecithin and vitamin E) in this particular soap forms a skin softening layer on the skin to prevent it from drying out. It’s a soap for sensitive skin but we won’t tell anyone.

Kaufman Mercantile, $17

Malin & Goetz SPF 30 Face Moisturizer

Even during the winter months it’s important to use SPF on your face. This Malin & Goetz product contains enough to save your skin against sun damage while protecting against environmental toxins. If you ever feel like the abrasive cold sends your skin into a tailspin (you can admit it) this product will balance everything out.

Malin & Goetz, $35

Nivea All-In-One Face Cream

At the end of the day, when your skin is feeling cracked and sore, nothing soothes quite like aloe vera. Nivea’s all-in-one face cream has a rich moisturizing formula of aloe vera with vitamin E. The combination will help smooth, protect and nourish skin no matter what kind of conditions you expose it to.

Nivea, $10

Dove Men+Care Deep Clean Body & Face Wash and Dual Sided Shower Tool

Specifically developed with purifying grains to meet the needs of men who like to wash, need to exfoliate and simply refuse to moisturize. When you’re ready to take it to the next level try the Dual Sided Shower Tool—which has a lathering side and an exfoliating side and looks like a part-cyborg supersoldier from the future might use. So, sufficiently masculine.

Dove, $6/$5

Jack Black Face Buff Energizing Scrub

Because all that scrubbing can leave your face feeling a bit raw, this exfoliant is combined with the cooling properties of menthol. Plus, some vitamin C to help it stay supple.

Jack Black, $20

Triumph & Disaster’s Rock & Roll Suicide Face Scrub

As manly as a facial exfoliant comes, with hints of smoke and cedar and powered by volcanic ash and green clay. We’re pretty sure it’s what David Bowie uses.

Triumph & Disaster, $36

Kyoku Exfoliating Scrub

Made from ingredients native to a small village in Japan (like Volcanic Ash and Adzuki Bean Powder) where the men apparently have such youthful-looking skin that it was only a matter of time before someone bottled the stuff.

Kyoku, $30

Pre de Provence Argan and Shea Butter Exfoliating Soap

Sometimes getting men to stop using generic bar soap on their face (which will only dry out their skin) is like getting them to give up the graphic t-shirts they wore in college, soap like this is handy, since the face isn’t the only place that needs exfoliation. Plus, the shea butter adds much needed moisture.

Pre de Provence, $8

Gillette Fusion ProSeries Soothing Moisturizer

Shaving an already dry face will have you feeling like the blades were red hot. Calm down that angry skin by locking in moisture with a soothing moisturizer. This one from Gillette hydrates to relieve dryness after shaving with an acting soothing complex and a touch of aloe.

Gillette, $7
