I thought it would be fun to take a peek into Michael’s side of the bathroom and get a good luck at how a man really uses men’s grooming products. It was definitely fun–and educational! It seems like Michael’s approach is to ignore the directions and use the products however it works for him, and I’d say it’s definitely working! Here’s what he uses for a close shave, clean skin, and great hair:
Clinique Face Scrub | Panasonic Wet Dry Shaver | Clinique Aloe Shave Gel | Art of Shaving Brush
Mach 3 Turbo Razor | Clinique Exfoliating Tonic | Clinique Moisturizer | Suave Groom & Clean
Garnier Fructis Miracle Dry Oil | Royall Muske Cologne | Old Spice Swagger Deodorant
Every morning, Michael uses the Face Scrub in the shower to loosen up his beard and prep for shaving. If he has a full-on beard, he’ll trim it first with the Shaver, then put on the Shave Gel with his Shaving Brush. Michael prefers using the Gillette Mach 3 Turbo Razor to shave. He follows up with a hefty splash of the Exfoliating Tonic, ending with the Daily Moisturizer with SPF 21.
For his hair, Michael prefers to save time in the shower by using a 2-in-1 shampoo conditioner. He towels it dry and/or blows it dry, then adds Suave Groom & Clean to keep his curly hair frizz-free. Sometimes he also sprays the Dry Oil onto his hands before smoothing them over his hair.
To smell good all day, Michael uses Old Spice deodorant. He prefers the non-white variety to avoid residue, then ends his morning routine with a splash of my all-time favorite men’s cologne, Royall Muske. He’s been using this for years and I LOVE it!!
