First, get your Daily Basics kit ($45). This bad boy contains the essentials you need to kickstart your day and give your hair, body and face the wake up call they need – whether it’s in the dorm or the boardroom.
What you get:
- No. 21 Daily Moisturizing Shampoo // The first line of defense in keeping follicles in optimal shape. Yes, it cleans away grease without stripping strands and scalp, but it’s top-shelf ingredients that make the formula go that extra mile. Wheat Tein W, a cuticle-penetrating protein, repairs damage and keeps strands feeling light and smooth. A custom-crafted mix of Phytantriol and Pro Vitamin B5 encourages elasticity and amps up strength. We’ve also added organic grade hops—yes, the stuff that makes beer taste like beer—because they also happen to be one of the most nourishing ingredients out there when it comes to hair.
- No. 30 Moisturizing Body Wash // This scientifically forged formula proves that not all men’s body cleansers are created equal. Ingredients in the Moisturizing Body Wash have been carefully curated—right down to the smallest molecules—to ensure that it cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural protective layers. The medical-grade moisturizing agent polyquaternium-7 (Provitamin B) and organic jojoba boost the skin’s natural line of defense and repair environmental damage. Green tea and aloe vera keep it friendly to sensitive skin—while the brisk scent of peppermint oil energizes body and mind.
- No. 05 Shaving Cream // Using the finest, pharmacy-grade ingredients, the Shaving Cream formula combines top-grade coconut oils with silk-based amino acids, organic jojoba oil and a potent blend of inflammation-arresting antioxidants. Nourishing fatty acids remain aqueous enough to pass through blades without clogging the razor. No other pore-blocking oils or artificial fragrances have been added. And because it squeezes out of a tube, it’s also free of the chemical propellants that can degrade active ingredients.
Money right there, all conveniently laid out and ready for you to rock.
You’re going to also need some more…don’t go half way. You covered your shower and shaved, but your face is pretty important, don’t you think? Treat that money maker right.
The NO. 12 FACIAL CLEANSER ($20) is tough on dirt and easy on skin. When it comes to choosing a facial cleanser, it’s a credo every well-groomed man should live by. Montez Renault’s sulfate- and paraben-free formula eats grime for lunch while also harnessing the power of squalene, a top-shelf emollient crafted from olives found in France and Spain, which locks in your own natural, healthy oils. High-grade aloe vera and green tea tag-team to smooth skin’s topography while reducing redness and inflammation. Finally, a custom blend of antioxidants arms skin with the essential vitamins needed to battle environmental pollutants.
The NO. 17 FACIAL MOISTURIZER ($30) is a featherweight facial moisturizer with lightning-swift absorption is non-negotiable for men, whose skin tends toward oiliness. Montez Renault’s advanced moisture complex immediately gets down to business, penetrating through deep dermal layers in seconds. The formula includes soybean and peppermint lipids, powerful “dry” oils that don’t clog pores. Its other powerhouse ingredient, Oristar, is a natural emollient compound derived from brown seaweed, which functions as a time-release moisturizing agent–so once applied, it’s on the job all day long. In addition, the formula tackles wrinkles, energizes dull complexions, and stops dry, flaky skin dead in its tracks.
