Scrub It Kook Soaps

I never know what to buy the men in my life. All they seem to want are boxers and video games, and I can’t pick out either. Lucky for me, North Shore Soap Factory has joined forces with manly haven Mojo Barbershop to bring a locally made line of all-natural soaps from the Waialua Sugar Mill to Downtown. There’s nothing girly about these scents: Eucalyptus, Sandalwood and Kukui Homebrew (yes, as in beer). Don’t worry–you won’t reek of a hangover if you get pulled over after lathering up. The soap hints more of kukui nut oil than an I.P.A., leaving your men smelling fresh and NOT like they fell into a vat of Old Spice.

Mojo Barbershop, 1157 Bethel St., open Mon.–Sat., 10am–7pm, $5.50 each or 3 for $15, [mojobarbershop.com], 927-8017
