    ok ive always been one to hear of a product last...so ive often thought how do i know whats necessarily needed to always look on point...so i thought that being this is realjock...im sure you guys can chip in an name a product and its uses etc....and perhaps if other readers out there havent heard of it...will be informed once you post lol. here goes....so if you guys have any other products add it to the list. normal bar of soap and a toothbrush dont cut it lol.

    i use tend skin as i get waxed now and then..it prevents bumps..razor bumps etc

    I just hop in the ocean and bathe with salt water, then roll in the sand to exfoliate.

    Soap, shampoo, and a quick comb of the hair. That's my gay men's maintenance manual.

    Uh... Suave shampoo, body wash or soap (depends on my mood), and shave w/out gel (probably not the best idea). Deodorant helps, too.

    my bathroom is almost a cesspool of beauty products. Its really bad. lol.

    But... my general regimen looks as follows:

    Bumble & Bumble Shampoo/Conditioner

    BLISS Blood Orange and White Pepper body wash (amazing)

    SPF 15 face lotion by LAB Series for men

    I dont shave my face unless I have a job interview or special occasion. Otherwise I use a beard trimmer and leave stubble.


    I have all sorts of other crap that I use from time to time.... including but not limited to:

    - facial serums against aging
    - mud masks
    - Bliss foaming mask treatment.... quite refreshing.....

    Actually this may help some people, but considering that I have Celiac disease (I cannot have gluten), I now know why some products made me break out like crazy. They were laced with wheat germ oil, or hydrolyzed wheat protein, and other things that are useless for your hair but tantamount to poison for people with a sensitivity. I highly recommend keeping it simple - it's all sodium laureth sulfate in the end. If you have a similar problem, you may be dealing with a sensitivity/allergy/celiac disease, and will feel and look better if you buy something without a bunch of frivolous junk in it.

    As a sidebar - I am not profferring myself as an expert on skincare, nor pretending I have a complexion clearer than Tom Cruise's thetan (badum-ching). But it made things better for me.
