Guy products that girls love

       
Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

He shouldn't mind if you use a couple of his products!Ladies have many more products to choose from when it comes to bath and beauty products, but there are plenty of men's products that women just can't seem to get enough of. Whether it's because girls simply like the cleaner smell or think a few of the male products work better, there's no shame in turning to your guy's staples every now and then.

Deodorants are one product that just seem to work better when they're made for guys. They often do a better job at preventing sweat, so go ahead and borrow his Jack Black – Pit Boss Antiperspirant and Deodorant. You'll be sweat-free and smelling fresh for hours!

If your guy suds up with a body wash instead of a bar of soap, you may want to try it out for yourself. Baxter of California – Invigorating Body Wash – Bergamot / Pear smells amazing and has plenty of luxurious moisturizers.

Even guys' shaving tools work for girls, so get your hands on his razor and try using a brush like eShave – Shaving Brush Fine Badger (Blue) to lather up and exfoliate your skin, which will give you a closer shave. Just be sure to say thank you and restock his supplies if he's ever running low!

Some guys actually care about their brows

Some guys actually care how their brows look!When it comes to eyebrows, most guys couldn't care less. They may pluck the occasional hair in between their brows, steering clear of the unibrow, but other than that guys prefer to let them go. However, The Wall Street Journal recently featured an article about army men who have been turning to eyebrow shaping as the latest grooming trend.

One solider apparently had his eyebrows shaped "by accident" while he was getting a haircut, and ended up with slimmer, tapered arches that he has since touched up twice. Although Islam forbids eyebrow shaping for Muslim men, barbers in Afghanistan have happily been tweezing and threading the brows of U.S. soldiers.

If your man's brows are getting a bit unruly, just point him in the direction of these brave souls, then help him out. Tweeze any stray hairs that don't fit in with the bunch, then make sure to use Tweezerman – After Tweeze Soothing Cream so he doesn't complain about how much it hurts! While you're at it, why not give him some HE Minerals – Lip Balm to smooth out his smile. He'll thank you later!

Don’t get burned by your guy’s beard

       
Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Looks uncomfortable, doesn't it?Beard burn is a phenomenon that many ladies experience when dating a guy with stubble. It happens when a guy's sharp, course facial hair rubs onto the skin around your lips and chin, creating redness, irritation and unsightly bumps. Since not kissing your guy clearly isn't an option, here are a few of Allure magazine's ideas to help fix the problem.

A protective moisturizer can work as a barrier between your delicate skin and your guy's beard, so slather on a product like Sothys – Hydroptimale THI3 Comfort Hydrating Creme before your lips get busy. Applying it again afterward can help soothe any discomfort if you still managed to get a bit of irritation.

A 1 percent hydrocortisone cream can work to help eliminate the pain and redness, and it's important to avoid using cleansers and scrubs with exfoliating particles while your face is healing. You may even want to consider gifting your guy with Anthony Logistics – The Perfect Shave Kit, which will motivate him to get rid of that pesky stubble!

Shaving tips for sensitive skin

       
Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Shaving sensitive skin doesn't have to be a pain!Some guys don’t pay much attention to the subtleties of their skin, which is why many end up damaging their face if it’s sensitive and they don’t accommodate for it. Luckily there are plenty of ways to get a perfect shave every time without irritation.

1. Make sure your hair is wet before you start shaving. It’s best to shave your beard right after a shower so the hair is soft. Use a pre-shave product like Caswell-Massey – 1752 Pre-Shave Oil to moisturize and protect against razor burn.

2. Always use a sharp razor, like eShave – 5 Blades Razor Nickel Plated, which uses disposable blades so you can ensure it’s always fresh.

3. Take your time. You don’t want to rush a shaving job, which can cause redness, ingrown hairs and nicks. Avoid going over areas that have already been shaved – use careful, effective strokes every time.

4. Shave in the direction your hair is growing in. Shaving against the growth uses more force and is more likely to cause irritation.

5. Exfoliate your face weekly to get rid of any dead skin cells that may cause your shave to be less effective.

6. Use a moisturizer after shaving to replenish your skin and keep it soft and smooth all day.

This Father’s Day, give the gift of groomed perfection

This Father's Day, give the gift of groomed perfectionWhy should moms be the only ones to get baskets of delectable beauty products? Just because we see more ties, watches and golf caddies fly off the shelf for Father’s Day doesn’t mean that Dad won’t appreciate (and secretly long for) a way to pamper himself come June 19.

This Father’s Day, think outside the gift box and consider a few items your dad might love in the line of soaps, shaving products, fragrances, skincare products and so much more.

Skincare

Even if you’ve got the burliest mountain man on this side of the Rockies for a father, his skin still has all kinds of needs that must be cared for vis a vis a high-quality face wash or moisturizer. There’s nothing your old man will love more than scrubbing down with a Baxter of California Facial Scrub or an Anthony Logistics Mud Scrub Exfoliating Bar after a long day at the mines – proverbial or otherwise. Top it off with a moisturizer that’s especially designed for his skin type (if he’s prone to lots of sweat and even occasional adult acne, look for an oil-free formula).

Shaving 101

It’s no secret – men love to shave, and just about any guy will appreciate a nice shaving kit. Include a pre-shave treatment, luxurious shaving cream, that high-quality razor he’s been longing for, and of course, an intoxicating aftershave splash or balm. If you’re really thinking in fancy terms, treat him to a top-quality shaving brush such as the Baxter of California Bog Wood Pure Badger Hair Shave Brush. For those in a bind, the eShave Ultimate Shaving Kit will save you time and deliver Daddy the ultimate shaving treat.

For the sun god in your life

If there’s nothing your dad loves more than hanging ten at the beach, spending all day on the golf course or extreme hang-gliding off his favorite cliff-face, put that piece of equipment away and consider addressing his other outdoor needs. A Jack Black Sun Guard Oil-Free Very Water/Sweat Resistant Sunscreen SPF 30+ will be the answer to all of his skin protection needs, whether he’s trying his hand at a pro surfing competition or napping pool-side with a wedge of lime in his beer. And even if he started his skincare routine a little later in life, the Cellex-C Sun Rescue Gel can help visibly reduce aging effects caused by excessive sun exposure.

Eau de Father’s Day

Has he had his eye on the new cologne by his favorite designer? Why not be one step ahead of him and show him how much you care with a Giorgio Armani Armani Code for Men, or a Ralph Lauren Polo Double Black for Men Eau de Toilette Spray? After all, Dad should smell as good as he looks and feels.

For the man who has it all

Your dad may have his own personal world at his feet, but there’s nothing like a big, heaping gift set to make him feel like he’s got it all. The Caswell-Massey Sandalwood Worldly Pleasures Collection comes in an attractive box with an ancient world map design on it, replete with cologne, conditioning shampoo, talc and woodgrain bath soap. If you’d like to treat Dad to a complete at-home facial, consider the Jack Black Clear Solution Skin Purifying Set. It comes with a daily facial cleanser with aloe and sage leaf, a complexion solution razor bump and acne treatment with salicylic acid and green tea as well as a detox clay mask/spot treatment with kaolin, witch hazel and organic sea kelp.

Shaving treats to bring you to the razor's edge of delight We know shaving is a routine task for most men and women, but who said it had to be a droll, monotonous activity? You can turn your grooming sessions into regular treats for yourself by investing in a few choice products.

Ladies may well be tired of their razor routine, and for good reason. Many products just aren’t designed to keep up with the needs of women with sensitive skin. Why not opt for something along the lines of a MOOM Organic Hair Removal Kit with Rose Essence? These formulas are gentle, and with aromatic rose, you’ll get the pampering experience you secretly crave.

If you’re not so ready to ditch the shaving cream, it’s highly recommended that you indulge your senses with a fragrant product – Whish Shave Crave Shave Cream comes in intoxicating lemongrass, pomegranate and almond scents.

As for men, you may not only need a new lather to bring you to shave heaven, but an after-shave upgrade may be in the works for you. Take Caswell-Massey‘s After Shave Balm for a spin – its formula contains a blend of natural oils, sea kelp and algae with natural extracts and vitamin.

Top reasons for men to exfoliate

Top reasons for men to exfoliateMen are typically accustomed to a skincare routine of their own, but that doesn’t mean they can’t borrow a few pointers from their female friends every now and then. Though guys usually stick to a simple face cleanser and aftershave, there are many added benefits to using an exfoliator.

Exfoliating can help remove dead cells to create a healthier, brighter complexion as well as even out the skin’s surface. Not only are they great for cleaning the pores, but they can make the skin much more supple in the process.

For men, these products have the added benefit of promoting cell renewal and buffing the epidermis, which is subject to irritation and uneven texture after shaving.

Many exfoliating products, such as Baxter of California Facial Scrub, contain moisturizing ingredients such as aloe and honey to give guys some much-needed hydration.

Jack Black Face Buff Energizing Scrub is designed to prep skin for shaving by smoothing its surface. Regular usage also helps combat in-grown hairs and follicles.

Groom your man: Valentine's gifts he's sure to loveIt's not Father's Day, so why are you still holding that tie? Get your man something he'll really love this Valentine's Day with some thoughtfully selected grooming products.

Exfoliating may not even be a part of his vocabulary, but he'll soon be swearing by the word when he uses Baxter of California's Facial Scrub and comes out feeling like an entirely new person. The formula promotes cell-renewal and contains walnut shell powder to gently remove dead skin and impurities.

If you think he'll enjoy sticking with what he knows, keep in mind that no man doesn't love a good shave. Get him a fancy designer after-shave such as the Giorgio Armani Armani For Men After Shave Lotion. The exotic blend contains tangerine, green lemon and bergamot with woodsy, spicy notes of sandalwood, cedar and oak moss.

Think he's better off just having it all? Gift sets provide a hearty collection of products and they're often less expensive for the value they offer. The Caswell-Massey Sandalwood Worldly Pleasures Collection comes in a neat little package that features a vintage map design and boasts cologne, conditioning shampoo, talc and woodgrain bath soap.

Glee star talks about his off-camera style

Glee star talks about his off-camera styleFew shows on television right now are hotter than Glee. The musical comedy won three Golden Globe awards earlier this month and has attracted a slew of famous guest stars, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Neil Patrick Harris and John Stamos.

Recently, the show welcomed a new cast member, Darren Criss, who plays Blaine, an openly gay student at a rival high school. Given Glee's immense success, it's not surprising that Criss is starting to get noticed on the street.

However, Criss may not get recognized as often as one may think, and it's partly due to his beauty routine.

"[On the street] I look very different from my character – he has slicked-back hair, while I have really curly hair," Criss told Interview magazine. "And I never shave. I'm kind of a bum."

Whether a guy wants to play up his natural curls or prefers smoother strands, Jack Black offers a number of products perfect for maintaining any 'do. Jack Black Sleek Finish Texture Cream helps control unruly locks, while the brand's High Definition Hair Pomade provides separation and texture.

Pete Wentz sports natural curls

Pete Wentz sports natural curlsWhile beauty blogs are often abuzz due to Ashley Simpson's ever-changing hairstyles – she recently hacked off her long, auburn-colored locks for a blonde, gamine cut – it seems that her husband has stolen her tress-centered spotlight. Pete Wentz recently made headlines when he stepped out sporting a natural, relatively un-styled 'do.

Wentz is known for his stick-straight strands, but attended a press event in Detroit rocking curls. This may be surprising to many people who thought his hair was naturally straight.

"Here's the thing about hair – I think most people think that I have Lego hair, like I can just take it on and off in one piece, and that's not quite the case – although pretty close," he told People magazine in 2008. "I refer to this [phenomenon] as Lego hair, when people think that about me."

Of course, men who want to style their hair can opt for formulas specifically designed for their locks. Jack Black offers a plethora of products, such as Sleek Finish Texture Cream and High Definition Hair Pomade, that are lightweight and fragrance-free, so men won't look (or smell) like they spent hours on their hair – even if they did!
