Think you’re a modern man with modern sensibilities? Sure, you’re concerned about the environment; you recycle, try to conserve and go green when you can. So, why are you eyeing all those chemical-filled grooming products in the bargain bin? Before you save the planet’s skin you have to save your own. Wise up, be a man, leave the drugstore products behind and give your skin a break with the best 2008 grooming products for men.
Every Man Jack Face WashNo matter how much time you spend in the gym, she looks at your face first. Without a clean face that she’ll want to touch you’re not going anywhere with her. When it comes to 2008 grooming products, start with a light face cleanser that is not only well-made but affordable, which is essential since you wash your mug more than once a day. This one from Every Man Jack is perfect: it’s dye-, sulphate-, oil-, and paraben-free. Instead of a landfill nightmare, you get coconut and marine extracts for a deep, lowdown clean feeling that’ll get you ready for a great shave.
Umbrian Clay Treatment BarIf your skin is sensitive and you’ve had a few problems with excessive oiliness or dryness, you need a natural cleansing bar for your entire body. This versatile and natural bar from Umbrian Clay is a 2008 grooming product that can be used as a mask -- yes, real men sometimes use a cleansing mask to dig deep into their pores. An occasional mask for only a few minutes in the shower will do wonders for you if you’re experiencing acne breakouts or razor burn. Even if you’re not in need of its therapeutic qualities, you’d be smart to keep at least one bar around because it’ll also calm sunburns and insect bites, and it’ll help prevent ingrown hairs.
ACCA KAPPA White Moss Shaving CreamBefore you reach for rust-resistant aerosol can of compressed shaving foam think twice about what you’re putting on your body’s most sensitive skin. Do you really want all those chemicals soaking into the thin layers of skin around your lips? OK, so the foam is cheap. I’ll give you that. However, if you use a high-quality shaving cream from ACCA KAPPA you’ll get a closer, cleaner shave that will last at least a day or two longer than a shave with that old can of foam. If done right, this 2008 grooming product can help you could get away with shaving every other day. And if you have to shave everyday for work or just to feel like yourself, you’re even better off using this White Moss shaving cream from ACCA KAPPA because it will help protect and rejuvenate your skin with each use.

Bliss Homme Improvement AftershaveA proper aftershave regime is half the battle of getting a great shave. Shaving with a blade takes off the top layer of skin along with the hair, which is why you feel so clean and fresh afterwards. But this feeling will soon fade into irritated skin if you don’t apply an aftershave lotion like this Bliss Homme Improvement post-shave repair lotion to extend that fresh feeling and help your face recover from the blade.
John Varvatos Hydrating Facial MoisturizerApplying a layer of moisturizer to your skin is the one step in grooming most men forget about or at least skimp on thinking a mega jar of petroleum-based goo is adequate to protect and preserve your skin. Remember: Your skin is your first line of defense against the elements and the guy coughing next to you in economy. If your skin is healthy, you are healthy. So, get yourself a bottle of John Varvatos Hydrating Facial Moisturizer. She may not tell you, but she’ll notice your renewed effort and to the victor come the spoils of love, gentlemen.
get groomingThink about all the items you surround yourself with in the course of the day. Now look at your grooming products. Is there a disparity in the quality and benefits of your grooming regime and the latest techno-gadgetry you just had to have? Yes, I suspected as much.
Ian Fleming’s James Bond, the real Bond found only in the original novels, had his own grooming regime he learned from his London barber. Consisting of simple yet high-quality soaps and lotions, Bond ventured forth well-groomed and ready for the world as a gentleman. So, why not take advantage of these 2008 grooming products with environmentally sound and healthy products to create your own personal regime. The only downside is that the woman in your life might claim them as her own. How she repays you is a matter for another time.
