We love boys, but let’s be honest. Their grooming habits are generally atrocious (we’re willing to bet that, in a pinch, your man shampoos his hair with bar soap). There are exceptions to the rule, however. Whether it’s a zingy shower gel (gives the perfect jolt of energy in the a.m.) or a genius little trimmer (hello, stray bikini fuzz), your dude is definitely hoarding some secret gems in his bathroom cabinet.
Check out these top eight man-products to steal from your beaux. We won’t tell if you won’t.
This botanical mask is formulated to suck excess oils and impurities out of rough-and-tumble man-skin. But it also doubles as a brilliant spot treatment for zits. Simply dot it over individual pimples at bedtime, and the calendula and sea kelp-infused formula will dry it out by morning.

Who can resist a hair trimmer with an LCD display? He loves it because it’s tech-y and makes beard-grooming a cinch. You love it because it zaps pesky bikini hairs in a flash.
This heavenly-scented essential oil is meant to hydrate mens’ skin before shaving, which helps prevent razor burns. We like to massage it on awkward areas like knees, ankles, and underarms – if you shave on a well-moisturized surface, you’re less likely to nick.

We’re in awe of this little chalk pencil, meant to cure man-nicks. Here’s how it works: Your man simply presses it over his cut, and the bleeding magically stops (it works, we don’t ask questions). If you’re an accident-prone kind of gal – or you have a toddler -- you should keep one on you at all times.
