They say time is money, and we absolutely agree. We’re constantly looking for ways to cut corners to gain more time to do other things, like pressing the snooze button for the umpteenth time. Hence, this could be a lifesaver for the gents: all-in-one cleansers to save an extra 10 minutes in the shower, perhaps more.
This miracle product is by no means a new thing. In fact, it has been around for decades, perhaps taking a back seat in the past few years or so. With barbershops rising in popularity and in tandem, men’s grooming trends, the amount of products a man needs to look good seemed to be increasing as well. We’re talking about separate hair and body shampoos, facial cleansers, beard oils, and the like.
But how many of us can really slap all that on in the morning where we need to rush out the door? For those days, all-in-one cleansers are your saving grace, doing the job of two cleansing agents or more (depending on whether or not you use your body wash on the face, or a separate cleanser). Not only do these all-in-one cleansers streamline your day’s grooming process, they’re also the perfect bottle to toss into your gym bag because you only need that one product.
We know we’ve already convinced you, so here are five all-in-one cleansers to purchase right now.
For the man who wants to cut down on grooming time but still show his love for the environment, this hair and body wash from The Aromatherapy Co is paraben-free, contains only botanical and natural plant extracts, and is cruelty-free. It’s also great for the skin, formulated with 100% pure and natural essential oils of vanilla cocoa spice to moisturise hair and skin while keeping you smelling good.
This all-in-one wash from Kiehl’s works particularly best post-sweaty sessions after the gym, as it contains ingredients to detox and energise skin, while removing clogged dirt and oil from pores. Body Fuel is formulated with caffeine, vitamin C, zinc, and menthol, which means you’ll feel superbly fresh and energised post-shower.
Jack Black has been a known men’s grooming brand, so it comes as no surprise that their All-Over Wash is also one of the brand’s best-sellers. Most of the older all-in-one cleansers will be too harsh for skin, but not this one. It’s mild enough for all parts of the body including the face, yet does its job well in getting rid of dirt and grime.
From the sparkling turquoise liquid within this bottle lies a brand that’s been around since 1854. The hair and body wash itself is not as old, but does the job just as well without stripping off excess oils, and smells fresh thanks to its blend of natural oils.
Associate hard liquor with a grooming product and you’ll have a winner with men. The Olivina Men All-in-One Body Wash in Bourbon Cedar is one such product with excellent amber aesthetics to boot. The scent is also great: a combination of rich red cedar and smoky vanilla, guaranteed to get the girls flocking. Formula-wise, this one cleans effectively without leaving your skin taut and dry.
