Shopping for guys can be a challenge—especially if you're looking to get them something special for the holidays—but it all gets a bit easier when they're known for taking care of their appearance.
There are so many amazing brands out there dedicated to men's skincare and grooming, but which ones are actually worth gifting this year? We've done our research so you don't have to. Whether the guys in your life love to look and smell amazing, keep their skin moisturized and hair well-kept—or if they need a little help in those areas—here's what to gift them in 2022.
Urban Skin Rx Exfoliating Face Wash + Scrub: $14
The man who loves a fresh, clean face deserves the best in face wash, which is why we love this option from Urban Skin Rx. It's a two-in-one cleanser that unclogs pores with salicylic acid, jojoba beads and niacinamide while also acting as an exfoliant to help deal with razor bumps. It's also a great gift for the guy who you just know uses a regular old soap bar to wash his face. We all know one.

Atwater Heavy Armor Facial Moisturizer: $35
Healthy skin starts with moisture, which is why it can start looking especially chapped and dull during the cold, dry winter months. Guys need a great face lotion during this season more than ever, and Atwater's Heavy Armor Facial Moisturizer is an easy-to-apply option for even the laziest of guys. It's versatile, working for dry skin to combination skin, and everything in between, and absorbs fast to leave skin with a healthy glow thanks to the inclusion of niacinamide, shea butter and saccharide isomerate.

Rule & Reign Skincare Crown Collection: $79.99
Not every guy is open to developing a full-blown skincare routine, but those who are will love Rule & Reign's three-piece Skincare Crown Collection. It begins with a Hyaluronic Gel Cleanser, removing excess oil as well as debris from the face as it unclogs pores, before moving on to an Anti-Aging Cell Serum, using vitamins B3, C and E to improve collagen formation in a lightweight formula. Lastly, it includes an Advanced Amino Acid Repair Cream, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles as it smoothes and renews skin.

Michal & Max Hydrating Shave Cream: $29
We firmly believe that shaving cream should do so much more than just make a razor glide more smoothly, which is why we're all about this Hydrating Shave Cream from Michal & Max. It's great for every step of the shaving process, from conditioning both the skin and beard as a pre-shave treatment to creating a slick and comfortable shave and finally working as a post-shave hydrator, nourishing with natural minerals and reducing irritation. It's perfect for the guy who loves a close shave (or dearly needs one).

Cleanliness starts with a great soap, and Raw Sugar Living's Men's Bar Soap Duo was made for breaking through grease and grime with a deep cleanse while massing muscles and smelling incredible.

Spongellé Men's Gallant Buffer: $22
For deeper exfoliation in the shower, we love everything from Spongellé, and their scents for guys are particularly dreamy. This unique sponge buffer has the soap hidden inside, releasing its buttery, moisturizing body wash in the process of scrubbing. It gets the body squeaky clean as it buffs away dead skin and smells like a blend of lemon, herbs and musk to create a scent that's manly without being reminiscent of cheap body spray.
Black Wolf Wush + Charcoal Body Wash Bundle: $69
We all know you're not supposed to put cotton swabs in your ears, but that doesn't stop people from doing it—especially those who like to keep clean. This holiday, get the guy in your life something actually designed to clean ears with Black Wolf's innovative Wush ear cleaner. It's safe and effective for cleaning out earwax—and this bundle also comes with the brand's best-selling Charcoal Body Wash for a great all-over clean.

MadeMan Travel Collection: $19.99
Instead of plaguing frequent flyers with big, non-TSA-approved bottles that can't go in their carry-ons, gift travel-sized versions of great products, like the ones in this MadeMan Travel Collection. This one's all about keeping things simple with a two-step skincare routine, including The Resetter facial cleanser and shave gel and The Refresher all-in-one moisturizer. Just two minutes a day, and their skin will be as good as new, wherever they go.
