Guys care more about their looks than they let on. The proof is in a slew of local products geared toward keeping men in top form.
Beard comb, $22
Movember might be over, but your beard is still going strong. Joe Bencar, HandleBeard Combs founder and Mentor resident, helps keep those whiskers in place with his Salute comb. Shaped to resemble a hunting knife, it's durable and fits easily in your pocket — plus it has a bottle opener at the end. "I like the look of it, and it's not huge," says Bencar. handlebeard.com
Facial moisturizer, $30
Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby likes to look good, so he created Montez Renault, a men's grooming line with college teammate Chris Butler. It features the No. 17 Facial Moisturizer made with soybean oil and green tea extract. "It took almost three years for us to develop everything," Dansby says. "It wasn't no fly-by-night, stick your name on something and ride." montezrenault.com
Set of beard oils, $40
Use beard oil like you'd use hair conditioner. Just a few drops of Hart and Hawthorn's oil makes your scruff softer. And with scents such as Argentum — a mix of lime, eucalyptus and clove — your nose will thank you too. "We make 50 bottles max at once," says co-founder and co-owner Yu Zhang. "When you buy something from us, you know it's fresh." etsy.com/shop/hartandhawthorn
