For the record, girls aren't the only ones who need to pay attention to the beauty department. When it comes to proper grooming and skin care, gender is inconsequential—and that said, you should know that even your boyfriend is not exempted from suffering from acne troubles and other beauty-related emergencies. So of course, being the caring and thoughtful girlfriend that we know you are, you should take it upon yourself to orient him on the basic products that he needs in his—ahem, dare we say it—own kikay kit.

We break it down for you below:

  1. Lip Balm

Kissable lips? Yes, please!

  1. Shaving Cream

Natural skin moisture is stripped away when shaving, so a shaving cream that prevents that while also soothing the skin and keeping razor burn at bay is a must.

  1. Hair Wax

Because bad hair days are a no-no even for them boys.

  1. Facial Wash

He might not have makeup to remove before hitting the sack, but the amount of dirt and oil that his face accumulated within the day would still most likely result to breakouts the morning after.

  1. Toner

The basic three-step skin care routine also applies for your boyfriend! In fact, men tend to have more noticeable pores, so to minimize that, use toner after cleansing and before moisturizing.
