After he sloughs off the top layer of skin, it’s time for shampoo and conditioner. His oily skin also translates into oily hair, so he’s a big fan of anything minty. He’s currently using American Crew Citrus Mint Shampoo and RenPure Solutions Rosemary Mint Cleansing Conditioner. Mr. Goldgirl believes that mint is somehow more effective against oil than other options. Again, not sure if he’s right, but his hair always looks great.
Still in the shower, he now reaches for a recent favorite-Boots No. 7 Men’s Energizing Face Scrub. However, instead of scrubbing his face (how much exfoliating can one person do?!), he uses it as a shaving cream. He uses the Gilette Fusion Power Razor in the shower, and then touches up any spots he missed once he’s out of the shower.
Now on to the “in front of the sink routine”, as he calls it. First, he towel dries his hair and then applies a small amount of the One n Only Argan Oil to his damp hair and combs it through using a detangling comb. If he has any skin irritation, he uses Bump Patrol as an aftershave. Then, he dries his hair using the Conair Infiniti 3-in-1 Styler. It’s an oddly shaped hair dryer that comes with various brush and comb attachments. He uses the brush attachment, and once dry, if his hair is a bit frizzy, he’ll follow up with a bit more of the Argan Oil.
To make sure he doesn’t stink during the day (which is something we can all appreciate), he uses Old Spice Pure Sport High Endurance deodorant. I just found out that it also comes in an antiperspirant, which he will find in his medicine cabinet tomorrow! Then comes my favorite part-cologne! Mr. Goldgirl has been using Royall Muske cologne since our dating days, and it is still my all time favorite scent for a guy. It’s just amazing. I wish there was a women’s version of it.
That’s all he does as far as personal grooming goes (well, he does brush his teeth, but that’s not too exciting). He doesn’t even wash his face at night. I know this might seem like a lot for a guy, but considering who he shares the bathroom with, I think that he’s using just the right amount of products. Let me know what the guy in your life uses, and I’d love to hear if you’ve convinced any of them to give my guy’s products a try!
