The Best Grooming Products For Men In 2017 (Well, So Far Anyway)


If you Googled ‘best grooming products for men’ and this link came up, then I’m guessing you’re either a girlfriend shopping on behalf of a guy… or you’re a guy looking up products for yourself.

Either way, luckily for you… I have compiled a handy dandy list of what’s popular in the male grooming world right now.

And let me just say, there is A LOT to choose from!


Believe it or not, but there are actually waaaaaaay more beauty products for men than you’d think… and some of them are seriously good (like so good that I use them on myself).

Anyway – check out my top 10 grooming products for men below:


1. Phillips Sonicare DiamondClean Electric Toothbrush 

Want that dentist-clean feeling and shine every single day, for less than a fraction of the price? Uhhhhh, yeah you do! Who doesn’t?

Well then… let me introduce you to your new best friend, Phillips Sonicare DiamondClean Electric Toothbrush.

I was sent one of these puppies to test and review, and boy oh boy was I impressed! I can’t even begin to tell you how life changing it is to feel like you’ve had a professional dental clean every single morning and night. My teeth have never felt so smooth and looked so white!

At a one-off price of $399.95, it means you will save on dental bills in the long-term. 

It removes up to 7x more plaque than a manual toothbrush, and improves gum health in only two weeks (and believe me, you will feel a difference in your gum health after the first clean).

Also, the densely packed stain removal bristles make your teeth appear twice as whiter.

There are five modes for all brushing needs: Clean, Gum Care, Polish, Sensitive and Whiten (I tried using all five settings, but found they were a bit too powerful/fast for my sensitive teeth… so I prefer to stay on ‘Sensitive’ mode).

It comes with a dual charging system, which I think is pretty damn cool. You can either use the charging glass (you literally just plug the glass into the wall and sit the toothbrush in it to charge), and a travel case.

So in a nutshell, you get a month’s worth of manual brushing in just two minutes!


2. Ethique Suave For Men Shampoo & Shaving Bar

If you’re shopping for an eco-conscious man (or you are one yourself), then the Ethique Suave For Men Shampoo and Shaving Bar is perfect.

This is perfect for the man who wants to shave, wash his body and his hair all at once with one easy-to-use product. It’s specially formulated to work as both a shampoo and a shave bar.

It combines clay, cocoa butter, glycerine and orange butter for a zesty, clean scent – and it’s completely 100% soap free, pH balanced and safe for colour treated hair.

Plus, men love a good two in one product – efficient as!


3. Tangle Teezer Men’s Compact Groomer
