5 summer (beauty) products for men

I didn’t have to go very far to find my favorite summer men’s “handsome” (i.e. beauty) products, since my own husband uses some of the best smelling and best working products out there. I raided his bathroom drawer, and here are our favorite products for men this summer:

  1. R&B Hair Moisturizer

    This cream not only smells absolutely amazing, but it also tames hair really fantastically. It is a hair conditioner that you use after the shower and my husband (and I, for that matter) use it to style as well. Plus, no chemicals makes R & B tops on our list for hair products.

  2. Dr Bronners Magic Shaving Soap Gel Lavender

    You may start to notice a theme here – this product smells great and works really well for shaving sensitive skin. It doesn’t lather like shaving cream at all, so if you (or your man) are new to shaving gels, be prepared for a different (but well working) experience. Plus: it’s organic!

  3. Weleda Pomegranate Creamy Body Wash

    Another win in the “smells amazing” category, this body wash feels almost like lotion, is natural and not full of chemical junk, and works perfectly.

  4. Tom’s of Maine Lavender Deodorant

    We try to stick to natural deodorants to avoid harsh chemicals and this is one brand my husband has used for a long time. If you aren’t used to natural deodorant your body will have to adjust at first (since it’s used to the chemical antiperspirants and aluminum!) and you may feel more sweaty or notice it not lasting very long at first. It takes a couple weeks to adjust, but it’s so worth it to keep toxic products off your manly/man’s skin.

  5. Coconut Oil

    Yep, just regular coconut oil (we like to use organic, cold pressed, if possible). We use this for nearly everything in the house from cooking to cuts and scrapes, but my husband likes it as a face moisturizer, lip moisturizer and foot healer (the man needs a pedicure like crazy).

I also couldn’t resist adding in today’s summery list sunglasses for my husband – those Ray-ban Men’s Aviator Sunglasses are so stylin’.

  1. Coconut oil is great; we use it for all sorts of things.

  2. I love all of your lavender choices! If I had my way, all of my products would be lavender-scented. And after hemming and hawing for too long, I’m finally biting the bullet and getting some dang coconut oil already.

  3. Cool post! 🙂

  4. Wow! everything here are natural and organic. 🙂

  5. Super interesting. I think that natural products have future…
    My haven’t been able to use any natural products for now but I will. Especially the coconut oil.
    Great article. Thanks!
