Splurging on shampoo or hand cream is a lovely extravagance, but sometimes men are just looking for products that get the job done. These drugstore staples don't have fancy ingredients or labels because they don't need them. They're grooming classics that men can rely on when they're on the road or in a pinch. They just work.
Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion
If you're finicky about putting lotion on your body, the Gold Bond Ultimate series is for you. The blend of seven intensive moisturizers actually works and, miraculously, it absorbs quickly without leaving you feeling slick or greasy. Gold Bond's Therapy Lotion has also branched out to cover any skin type imaginable: There are lotions formulated specifically for men, for diabetics, and for anyone looking to soften, smooth, or calm skin.
