Look good, feel good, as the saying goes. And whether you're a man or woman, there's no better way to feel good than to pamper yourself. Plus, feeling good is doubly important when working in a high-stress, fast-paced environment. 

Fortunately, incentive merchants have loads of beauty and personal care products that can help your star employee look their best, feel their best, and perform their best once they come to work.

For the men who need to groom while rushing out the door, there's Panasonic's four-blade ES-LA93-K rechargeable shaver, available through Capitol Sales. This wet/dry shaver has an extremely flexible head, meaning it'll smoothly follow the contours of your face. It has an ultra-thin outer foil, letting it lift the hairs for an unbelievably close shave. Plus, it comes with a cleaning and charging station, making this device extremely easy to care for.

For men who want to take a little more time on themselves, check out the Art of Shaving's four-piece full size kit, available through Rymax Marketing Services. This unscented set comes with pre-shave oil to soften the hairs and get them ready for trimming, shaving cream, a badger hair brush to lather up your face, and aftershave to help moisturize, disinfect, and freshen the skin. It's the perfect gift for the man who wants to pamper himself little in the bathroom before setting off to work. And there's nothing like a long shave to get you ready for the day ahead.

For the women, there's the Wusthof 6 Piece Lavender manicure set, also from Rymax. This stainless steel kit, which comes packaged in a beautiful lavender suede storage case, comes with a file, tweezers, scissors, clippers and a cuticle pusher. As every high-performing employee knows, dirty unkempt fingernails can easily undermine a crisp outfit and professional demeanor. So the Wusthof 6 Piece is the perfect gift to keep nails looking fresh and neat.

Finally, there's nothing like unwinding after a hard day's work. And what better way to do so than to use the Luxe Spa Set from Helping Hands Partners' social enterprise unit 1eleven. This beautiful set is a spa retreat in a bag, and comes packaged with a glass candle, a bar of glycerin soap, two tins of bath melts and two tins of soaking salts. It's also available in a number of calming scents, including sea salt, lavender, citrus, and mint. 

Companies that purchase this item will also be doing social good: 1eleven provides jobs and careers to disadvantaged people from Chicago.
