Grooming and Skincare Items to Get This Spring

Spring has sprung, and that means its time for spring cleaning! After you go through and throw out old bottles and tubes of your skincare and grooming products (or ones with just a couple squirts left), these are the news items what you should fill your soon-to-be empty cabinets and drawers with to help you look and feel good:

Starting off with a special Men’s Health Box, they are providing a bonus box this quarter to feature the Best in Grooming (pictured above).

In the box, featuring the Men’s Health Grooming Award winners, you’ll find helpful and useful for every kind of guy. Five of my favorites (a big reason for being travel friendly) include:

Baxter of California Under Eye Complex ($28) – to help minimize puffiness and dark circles.

Grooming Lounge The Shavior ($24) – to provide relief from razor irritation, razor bumps, and ingrown hairs.

American Crew Defining Paste ($15) – for a medium hold with low shine that helps added texture and definition to the hair.

Versace Dylan Blue Fragrance ($10) – at .15 ml, its perfect for overnight or two-day trips to smell good the whole time.

Intelliwhite Pen ($50) – for travel-friendly fast and easy way to help teeth looking lighter.

Other items in box are very helpful as well, but you probably already have them or similar items on your shopping list, However, it is helpful that this box comes at $50, which is just the price of the teeth whitening pen if you were to buy it on its own (so it’s like getting that for the retail price plus all the extra new stuff to try or stock up on if you already have or just ran out).

As part of the Men’s Health MVP Network, I’ve partnered with the brand to share my favorites from the latest box, but of course all opinions are my own. And, if you want to try out the subscription box service, you can save 20% off your first box using code MHBOXMVP20. Do so over at

More spring grooming favorites:

Jack Black Beard Grooming Kit ($35– a four-step grooming routine that includes an All-Over Wash For Face, Hair & Body, Beard Lube Conditioning Shave, a Handcrafted Beard Comb, and JB’s special Beard Oil which includes Kalahari Melon Oil and Vitamin E. The Beard Oil is formulated to give a natural shine, and it hydrates the hair while treating the skin underneath.

Boka Classic Kit  ($16) – a three piece kit that includes Boka’s exclusive, natural mint, U.S.-made toothpaste (which is free from fluoride, SLS, triclosan, parabens and artificial ingredients), their gentle bristle brush that is made with Binchotan activated charcoal (which naturally reduces odor-causing bacteria), and a Teflon-free and petroleum-free floss.

Brickell Men’s Products Renewing Face Scrub for Men ($22) – an exfoliating men’s face scrub that gets rid of oil, dead skin, and other impurities for a clear complexion while also nourishing and hydrating the skin to leave it soft and non-irritated.

Kiehl’s Age Defender Power Serum ($50) – help defend against the effects of aging skin with this serum made up of Cypress Extract, Adenosine, and a strengthening protein blend. Easily absorbs into the skin and helps to visibly firm sagging skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
