Why should girls have all the fun on Valentine’s Day? Treat your hunk of burning love to something he probably won’t buy for himself—fancy yet manly grooming essentials.
1. Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta After Shave Balm ($73) – The modern antithesis of Aqua Velva: calming, soothing, citrusy and incredibly luxurious. 
2. Boscia Pore Purifyng Black Strips ($15) ­– Don’t let them fool you! Guys are pore-obsessed, too. These black Bioré-esque strips will keep them spic-and-span. 
3. Evolution of Smooth Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream ($3.50) – Creamy, comforting, and fragrance-free, this all-natural, non-foaming shave formula works just as well as versions that cost ten times as much.
4. Jack Black Dry Erase Cream ($38) – The perfect post-shave product for oily skin types. Hydrating, soothing, and packed with anti-agers that he’ll thank you for later.  
5.   Carbon Fiber Mia ($129) – The guy version of the cult-favorite cleansing brush. Preps skin for a closer shave with less irritation and keeps pores spotless. 
6. Viktor + Rolf Spicebomb Cologne ($75) – The grenade-shaped bottle alone will probably blow him away (no pun intended), but its contents are equally bold and daring. Think lumberjack meets Wall Street. 
7. Tweezerman Ingrown Hair Splinter Tweezer ($12) – So he will stop stealing YOUR tweezers to wrestle out those pesky ingrown hairs. 
8. Dude No. 1 Beard Oil ($65) – Who knew?! Beards require their own grooming aid, specially laced with woodsy scented, face-friendly essential oils. 
9. Cane + Austin Retexturizing Treatment Pads ($60) – Stacked in a cool green jar, these pre-soaked discs provide professional-strength exfoliation without the muss or the fuss. 
10. Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Soap ($40) – Hello! It’s a big, black bar of soap. It’s also chock-full of Dead Sea minerals that sop up oil and dirt without stripping his skin dry.
