Save Or Splurge: 6 Easy Clean Product Swaps For Men

When it comes to personal grooming, my husband is the polar opposite of me- he is a hyperminimalist and a creature of habit who has no desire to try anything new once he finds a product that works for him.

Since I do all the shopping in the household, I took it upon myself to find him clean swaps that wouldn't overwhelm him. Despite some initial resistance, I was surprised by how quickly he took to the new products and how much he enjoyed them.

Read on for 6 easy save-or-splurge swaps for men!
