When you’re not in a prison shower, bar soap is great. It’s manly. It’s rectangular. And since it is soap, it’s never dirty. But, when you finally wear that bar down to just a sliver, things get real dicey. STACK Infinity Bar Soap ($12.56 for a pack of 6) is specifically designed to avoid the pitfalls of tiny, slippery soap by letting you stack your little sliver on top of the next fresh bar. A specially shaped groove and grippy, raised lettering form the perfect soapy union. Coming soon to a jail near you?

It’s tough to improve on the ol’ toothbrush. It has bristles. You put paste on it. You rub it on your teeth once a week. But the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean does indeed move the needle forward. Forget about the 44% more bristles than the standard brush (well, don’t forget about it, but don’t spend all day thinking about it). Instead, spend all day thinking about how the glass charging station doubles as a mouth rinsing cup! Yes! Brush, rinse, charge. Your weekly routine has now been simplified.

The first rule to selling Fancy Black Soap ($16.50) is to make sure it’s 100% fancy. Hudson Made checks that box thanks to the soap being derived from nubian goat’s milk and mineral-rich volcanic clay. Nubian freaking goat’s milk, people. They didn’t just go to the local petting zoo and get some cranky Capra aegagrus hircus to squirt in a jar. No. They got a nubian. The soap is lightly scented with essential oils, making it a great match for dry skin.

Us guys aren’t exactly known for our cleanliness. I once used two spritzes of Armor All to freshen up my pits after an invigorating game of air hockey. So with that in mind comes Dude Wipes ($10 for a box of 30). These moist towelettes give you a portable way to tidy up with a fresh-scented blend of Vitamin E and Aloe on a man-sized disposable sheet. Does this mean you can dwindle down your showers from five a week to three? I’m gonna say yes.

From the moment you came out of your mother’s womb, your dad was right there–watching the Dodgers and the Padres on the waiting room TV. And once the game was over (San Diego won 6-2), and after he caught Johnny Carson’s monologue, and as soon as he took a quick leak, he came into the delivery room, took you in his arms, and looked deep into your eyes with pride, amazement, and great expectations for your future.
But carrying your father’s hopes and dreams can be a burden. He wants you to be rich and famous, while you’re pretty much content to just be eye crust-free in public. If pleasing pops on this Father’s Day remains a goal of yours – but not, say, a higher goal than avoiding freezer-burned sherbet – follow these five unique, non-sexual steps for making the old man happy.

Real beer lovers don’t just enjoy the taste of it going down their throats, they also savor that moment when the suds first hit their lips. Let that feeling linger with Sierra Nevada Natural Lip Balm ($1). It’s made from cascade hop oils and other all-natural ingredients, so it brings your favorite flavor to your pretty little puckers. More importantly, it won’t leave your lips cherry red. Save that for behind closed doors, freak.
