These new grooming products — from a lightweight gel to a high-quality razor — will give even the simplest routine that edge

Men are known to be loyalists when it comes to their skincare and grooming products. Once they've found something that works, they tend to stick to it. While this can be good — knowing what works and cutting out the hassle of shopping for new products — it also means that many men tend to miss out on the newest innovations when it comes to skincare and grooming. Here's what you should be considering as additions to your regimen.


1. A super lightweight moisturiser
This one from Shiseido Men rehydrates, refreshes and controls oils on the face. Expect a smoother complexion and a barely discernible, non-sticky sensation.

Shiseido Men Hydro Master Gel, $56

2. A shaving cream
Unlike other shaving creams that are white and foamy, this translucent cream allows for perfect visibility, resulting in a precision shave and soft, supple skin after.
 Bleu de Chanel Shaving Cream, $72

3. A quality razor
Sick of your disposable razors? Invest in one like this Aesop Double-Edged Razor that was meticulously crafted in England and perfectly weighted for an immaculate shave. This also comes with ten, stainless steel razor blades.

Aesop Double-Edge Razor, $135

4. A signature scent
Sure, you may already have a lightweight, aquatic fragrance for the day, but for the night experiment with something more masculine and assertive. Look for notes of woods, musks and even leathers to really make a statement.

Crabtree & Evelyn Leather Musk Cologne, $72
