Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and February 14th is not just for you, ladies! How are you treating your man this year? We got together with Detroit Grooming Company and put together a list of top favorites that your bearded (or un-bearded) man will love.
1. The Corktown Butter/Oil
A calling for all bearded men, the Corktown oil can be used to tame beard hair or used as an aftershave for softer skin. The oil doesn’t block any pores, improves complexion, and most importantly- moisturizes the skin.
The Corktown butter has an additional element of beeswax to help men tame their unruly beards. The throwback scent of tobacco, vanilla, and cedar doesn’t guarantee flashbacks of grandpa but will give an extra layer of protection and has valuable conditioning properties.
Ladies, don’t be discouraged. Though the oils and butters we’re made originally for beard use, they can still be used for all purposes. With an 80% absorption rate, it’s too good to pass up to use for ourselves. I personally use Orchard Lake, an orange and vanilla sent, on my skin and hair.
2. O.G. Beard Poo
If you wash the hair on your head, your beard hair should be treated with the same amount of decency, right? Beard Poo is meant to clean and wash your man’s beard, leaving the beard hair nourished, skin refreshed, and most importantly, clean! With an aroma of mahogany teakwood and a hint of vanilla, the wash is prone to leave your valentine smelling amazing and is safe to use everywhere else (hair, skin, face) as well.
If you are looking for other options, check out Detroit Grooming Co.’s assortment of hair care products, such as their peppermint shampoo and conditioner, that is paraben, sulfate, detergent, chloride, aluminum, and neurotoxin (should I keep going…?) free.
3. The Matte Paste
If your valentine doesn’t have hair on his face but hair on his head- look into these hair products instead. A global salon favorite, the Matte Paste is a water based product gives a medium hold with an enriched finish.
Need something stronger? Check out the other ten options available, ranging from different holds and different finishes suitable for any type of hair, hair style, and curve balls thrown by mother nature.
4. Solid Cologne
Looking for a unique gift to purchase for your unique guy?
This throwback style of cologne is hard to find elsewhere. This classy style of solid cologne is not only leak free for traveling purposes, but also lasts longer on the skin. With 5 different scents ranging from the popular scent Corktown to Sturgis (an amber bourbon smell), the fragrance is meant to last without the components of alcohol and gives you the ability to choose how much you wear.
5. The Valentine’s Day Kit
Overwhelmed with so many options? Detroit Grooming Co. is currently offering a limited edition Valentine’s Day kit with a very intentional theme for the holiday. This kit includes a Traverse City Candle (a cherry tobacco scent), Cherry Lip Balm, a seasonal Cherry Twizzles Candy bar soap, Traverse City Grooming Oil, and Deluxe Hair Pomade.
