6 Men’s Grooming Brands Your Dopp Kit is Crying Out For

There are definitely no shortage of men’s grooming brands to pick from but, if you’re anything like us here at The Coolector, you’ll likely want to be a good deal more discerning than most in making sure that you choose the right one for you.

With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 6 of our favourite men’s grooming brands. Your dopp kit will thank us:

Damn Handsome Grooming Co

Billed as intoxicatingly Hand Crafted Men’s Grooming, it’s hard not to love all the beer-inspired ware from the guys at Damn Handsome Grooming Co. All natural hop infused skin care made by joining forces with craft breweries across the States to re-purpose brewed ingredients into sustainable men’s goods since 2013.

After moving to Michigan from Portland, Oregon the husband and wife team behind Damn Handsome had a thirst for craft beer that was – frankly – unquenchable. Luckily they had one of the best craft beer cities right in their back yard and after getting to know many of the brewers in the craft beer community the more they saw how many healthy ingredients went to waste. No longer will guys get the bottom of the barrel in natural skincare products (pun intended) because at Damn Handsome they value the classics. All of their excellent goods are well-made, hardworking and long-lasting.

Stand Out Products: Beard Balm ($21), Beard Care Kit ($32) and Beer Shampoo and Conditioner ($16).


Modern Pirate

The guys at Modern Pirate are all about high quality products for men which take their inspiration from Australian barbering, tattoo and surf cultures. They are also heavily influenced by the people who surround them, which means that Modern Pirate encapsulates a free and easy approach to individual style and expression through high quality Australian made haircare and lifestyle products that we’re loving here at Coolector HQ.
