Highly Sensitive Men sometimes “take it on the chin” due to our innate trait of Sensory Processing Sensitivity. While we address that matter in other blogs, here are some of my top grooming products for highly sensitive men…to keep us looking and feeling great!
Panasonic Wet/Dry Electric Razors: I’ve been using Panasonic Wet/Dry’s since 1986, and swear by them. For those with sensitive skin, this may be the product for you! Wet/Dry’s can be used in the shower with shaving gel/cream, or used to “dry shave” with or without shaving oil. Easy to clean and and care for, plus strong battery life to get you through the week without recharging.
American Crew Ultra Gliding Shave-Oil: My dad turned me onto shave-oil several years ago. Though he uses it with a traditional razor blade, it also makes for a quick, comfortable, one-step “prep and go” when used with electric razors. The American Crew product is non-greasy, cushions skin for a close, and effortless shave, and is the best product of it’s type that I’ve tried.
Nivea for Men – Sensitive Shave Gel: Nivea for Men products are amazing, including all three pictured above. Their Sensitive Shave Gel is once again the best I’ve found…mixes well with water, and therefore works great with Wet/Dry’s! Their gel contains no drying alcohol, and instead is enriched with Vitamin E, Chamomile and Witch Hazel. This shave gel is reasonably priced considering the superiority of the product.
Nivea for Men – Energy Double-Action Balm Q10: Pictured above both with and without the SPF sunscreen. These balms are the only thing I’ll use on my face after shaving. This Q10 product has an “instant effect” that will wake you and make you feel great!
Certain Dri Clinical Strength Anti-Perspirant: Anyone dealing with Hyperhidrosis may benefit from this product, designed to stop excessive perspiration for up to 72 hours. The product is designed to be used at bedtime, and doesn’t necessarily need to be used nightly if combined with a morning deodorant.
Crystal Essence Mineral Deodorant: The perfect daytime compliment to the above product, made of Natural Mineral Salts which prevent body odor by creating an invisible protective barrier against odor-causing bacteria. I prefer it in roll-on form versus the mineral stone which you wet and apply to the underarms after showering/bathing.
Gold Bond Ultimate Body Powder: 100% talc-free with a fresh clean scent, this product boasts a time released formula. Try sprinkling into undergarments and/or directly onto skin for all day odor & moisture protection.
Refresh Optive Advanced Lubricant Eye Drops: I consider this product to be the Holy Grail of eye drops! Great for those with habitually dry eyes due to Lasik, climate-related, or with contact lenses. I find this Advanced Lubricant Formula stays within the eye better than other products, and just seems to be the optimal consistency.
