Men’s Grooming: Not So Rough Around the Edges

Gone are the days when a swipe of Dial soap in the shower was enough to keep the men of Kansas City looking good. Whether bearded or baby-faced, gents have plenty of skin- and beard-care options now, and many of the products are made right here in Kansas City. We’ve rounded up just a few of our favorites for keeping skin moisturized and facial hair kempt this summer season. 

Balm in Beardland
Add a little TLC to your beard with the Whiskey Beard Grooming Co. beard oil/balm combo. This two-step process features beard oil to moisturize and protect, followed by a beard balm to keep your face in place. Choose from sandalwood or lavender oil and follow with sandalwood or paradise balm. Bonus? Whiskey Beard is a Black-owned business located in the heart of downtown. Whiskey Beard Grooming Co. beard oil/balm combo, $37, available at Whiskey Beard Barbershop and Cigar Lounge at 1600 Cherry Street, Kansas City, MO or online on their website.

Minty Fresh
There are plenty of beard oils, waxes, and balms for bearded guys, but are you starting with a clean slate? If you’re not, it’s time to snag a bottle of Believe in Your Beard Peppermint Foaming Beard Wash. Made with natural Castile soap for cleaning power and essential oils and vitamin E for moisturization, this will leave your chin hairs clean and ready for the day. Believe in Your Beard Peppermint Foaming Beard Wash, $12.
