What's your grooming routine?

In the diverse world of grooming products for men, it's fairly easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of products and subcategories that there is out there. From whether to use toner or not to how much SPF for daily wear during the non-summer days all the way to what kind of cologne to wear to work; I'm curious what folks use on the regular. What have you found the most useful products for your everyday life and what are some items that you'd like to give a try to?
Here are some of my favorite products I can't live without:
- Blind Barber Shaving Cream - Watermint Gin (the scent alone of this cream makes me look forward to shaving)
- Hada Labo Gokujyun Hyaluronic Toner (from our Beauty community -- the perfect toner after a shave and hot shower to bring back moisture to your face)
- Shiseido Men Deep Cleansing Scub -- my favorite face wash i found in Japan years ago and can be easily found online these days
- Konjac cleaning sponges -- these are great funky little sponges made out of a potato plant that grows in Asia and do a great job at exfoliating
- Royall Rugby Eau de Toilette -- classic scent from a little known American company that's been making these for quite some time now!
Other things I use on and off depending on the day: hand lotion (Xi, our beauty buyer, got me hooked on the lotions from Holika Holika), eye cream (when i don't get enough sleep and have panda eyes), charcoal mask strips, and my trusty Seki Edge grooming kit (clipping your nails with these is truly life changing).
Curious to hear from you guys what are your go-tos as part of your daily/weekly grooming ritual. Let us know in the comments!

That's on a weekend.
A weekday looks like this: (1) hop in shower, shave (spare Merkur DE razor kept in shower), brush teeth in shower; (2) contacts; (3) hair; done.

Wake up in the morning feeling like I’m P Diddy Grab my glasses, I’m out the door, I’m gonna hit this city Before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack

In all seriousness, I used to have intermittent dandruff until I started using Paul Mitchell Tea Tree shampoo. After I shower I typically moisturize with Cerave cream, and I use this obscure Korean bottle that my mom's friend buys in bulk online for my hair. Last time I was in Korea I tried to find it in stores but I'm not sure they're sold in brick and mortar.
