The Best Salt-Infused Grooming Products for Beachy Hair and Smooth Skin

Salt may be nature’s exfoliant, but sodium chloride-infused grooming products can do more than slough away skin.

Sprays can give texture to thin strands, boosting your hair’s natural volume and helping you pull off certain hairstyles you might not otherwise be able to achieve.

It may seem counterintuitive, but lotions containing the mineral can actually help your skin cells drink in (and retain) moisture. And masks with NaCl can smooth away dead skin, exfoliating your mug for a closer shave.

The Best Ways to Exfoliate Your Skin From Head to Toe

Chasing that post-beach day glow—sans the beach? Sprinkle these mineral-rich and exfoliating salt-infused products into your morning routine. They’ll have you feeling salty in the best way.

Jack Black Turbo Body Scrub contains three types of salt: Hawaiian, Dead Sea, and Epsom. Use it in the shower as an exfoliant, or rub it over dry skin, then slip into the tub and let the arnica—a relative of the sunflower—and capsaicin ease achy muscles.

These Products Will Help You Get Rid of Calluses and Soothe Rough Feet

Boots and sneakers can leave feet looking, well, a little rough. If you’re contending with dry, flaky skin and deep calluses, there are quick and easy ways to condition your feet and so they’re healthy and looking their best. Put simply, you need a tool to help you exfoliate the skin, and something to moisturize your feet. Here are the best callus products to get them close-up ready.

First, use a pumice stone or callus file to gradually smooth down thick and rough areas.

Don’t Settle for Yellow Teeth! 9 Fast-Acting Teeth Whitening Products

Ever wonder how some guys end up with those super-bright smiles? They may tell you they’ve been brushing twice a day and taking good care of their teeth all their lives. But don’t you believe for a minute that’s the whole story. Chances are, they’re using a teeth whitener to erase everyday stains and brighten their teeth.

There are a bevy of products on the market that promise results. From whitening toothpastes and strips to all-natural charcoal powders to full-blown peroxide/UV treatments, there are so many options out there you’ve really got no excuse not to be using one of them on the regular. Especially if you enjoy a nice Malbec now and then, puff the occasional smoke, or drink coffee every morning. There’s no reason to feel guilty about any of that; we all do it.

Over time, these indulgences will absolutely discolor your teeth. Illness and even some medications can yellow your teeth, too. And simply getting older causes worn-away enamel to appear dull over time.

Don’t stop enjoying your life. Instead, stop acting like there’s nothing you can do about your teeth. There is, you can, and you should try one of these modern teeth whiteners. It’s important to find a brightening system that doesn’t just bleach your teeth—which can actually harm your enamel, causing pain and more problems down the road.

If you want to see results fast, check out this list of fast-acting teeth whitening products. Which tooth whitener is the best for you? There’s only one way to find out.

The Best Grooming Products for Oily Hair

Look, some scalps are just oily. And when the hairs grow up and out of that scalp, they tend to be oily, too. It’s a fact of life, and nothing to be ashamed of.

If your scalp—and your hair—are on the oilier side of life, then you’re quite familiar with the symptoms: The main one is looking like you haven’t shampooed for 3 weeks, despite having washed your hair five hours ago. Your hair is rarely voluminous and texturized, because it’s weighed down by the rapid sebum production in your scalp. And then, when you do shampoo, it’s parched and dull, at the other end of the spectrum. (For all of a few hours, before it’s greasy again.)

The Hardest-Working SPF Face Moisturizers for Men

It’s easy to combat this higher-than-most oil production, and in some cases, the scalp can be “reset” or trained to produce less sebum. Just put the following products to work (along with the advice scattered throughout), and you should be on your way to healthy, hydrated, controlled hairstyles—on the daily.

1. Old Spice Pure Sport Dry Shampoo

You already know and love Old Spice’s Pure Sport deodorant. The same classic aroma fills the air as you apply this dry shampoo (and it lingers throughout the day, too). But that’s not the only reason you’ll love this product: Better yet, it soaks up excess oil at the roots of your hair, preventing you from having to shampoo entirely. Sometimes shampoo renders your hair unstylable, because the strands are too clean to create texture, and that’s not a fate you deserve. So, alternate shampooing to every other day, and put this dry shampoo to use on the days between. It’ll volumize and thicken hair.

[$ 5.99;]

Courtesy Image

2. American Crew Daily Shampoo

For the days you do shampoo, pick one that’s gentle enough to use daily, even if you’re alternating wash days. There’s a reason so many salons rely on American Crew, as the brand’s shampoo leaves hair clean but also style-ready. It’s packed with sage leaf and chamomile, too, to calm and nourish the scalp, and minimize bacterial buildup and odor from all that excess oil.

[$ 14.95;]

Courtesy Image

3. Rahua Voluminous Conditioner

You need to condition every day, whether you shampoo or not. And Rahua’s volumizing conditioner is a stellar pick, since it moisturizes and plumps the hair like it was just blow-dried. Gone are the days when your oily hair was weighed down and lifeless. If you shampoo even less than every other day (many guys only wash once or twice a week), then this conditioner doubles as a great co-washer, where it still removes much of the dirt, grime, and excess oil without stripping any moisture. This is a good way to “re-train” your hair to produce less oil, too: Don’t shampoo as much, but flush and hydrate daily with an enriching conditioner.

[$ 36;]

Courtesy Image

4. R + Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste

This paste + dry shampoo hybrid styler excels at volumizing and texturizing. Apply it to dry hair on a non-shampoo day. It absorbs oil while leaving a defined, lightweight, matte finish in its wake. Or, put it into towel-dried hair for the same volumizing effects.

[$ 29;]

Courtesy Image

5. OUAI Oily Hair 90-Day Supplement

You can retrain your scalp to produce less oil—seriously. By shampooing less, you signal that the scalp should produce less sebum. This doesn’t mean that you’re going to rid yourself of the matter entirely, but it does help you get to the literal (and figurative) root of the problem. It just takes a couple months for the habit to show its result.

These pills are another way to “reset” the scalp, or to aid the process. A blend of green tea extract, vitamin A, and niacin work to regulate sebum glands. There’s also biotin and amino acids for fortified growth, as well as omega 3s to boost natural shine and definition—but not in the way that excessive oil ever did. Take them for 90 days, which is as many pills come in the pouch, while maintaining a lessened shampoo regimen. You should experience a far less oily disposition as result.

[$ 84;]


Courtesy Image

6. V76 by Vaughn 4-in-1 Cleansing Foam

You can use this gel foam for all the essential steps in your regimen: Shampoo, shave, cleanser, and body wash. That’s because it’s loaded with nourishing ingredients like coconut oil and antioxidants like bamboo stem extract, as well as the cooling finish of menthol. The result is an instant “reset” on oil, minus any drying out.

[$ 22;]

Courtesy Image

7. Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder

Sometimes, dry shampoo is a spray. Sometimes it’s a styling paste. And sometimes, it’s a powder, as is this Bumble and bumble product. A hybrid of silicone powder, corn + tapioca starch, and oat flour absorbs oil at the roots, and adds instant volume and texture to your style. Sprinkle it directly (and carefully) onto the scalp, or onto your comb. However, it’s most important to target the roots, just as with an aerosol dry shampoo. This is where the excess sebum collects, weighing hair down at the base. If your entire head is oily, then it’s time to shampoo in the shower.

The Best Grooming Products to Transform Dry Hair

If you have dry hair, you experience less grime and buildup than guys who have scalps that produce more oil (which is basically like a natural, all-day leave-in conditioner). That means your hair can often become brittle, wilting, and prone to breaking, making it harder to style.

The 7 Best Products for Thick, Wiry Hair

Like overly oily or thinning hair, it’s entirely possible to personalize your grooming regimen to overcome your natural dryness, and to condition the hair so it stays soft and stylable, You’ve got your work cut out for you, but with the proper products and regimen, it’s smooth sailing.

Here are some of our favorites—consider it a push in the right direction.







Jack Black MP10 Nourishing Oil

With a blend of 10 natural oils (argan, marula, and grape seed are the most prominent), this oil works on hair, beards, faces, and more. Use it with your usual go-to styling product; it delivers the necessary nourishment to keep strands soft yet defined all day—and with a natural shine to boot. You can also use it on its own if you have longer hair to tame frizz and flyaways. It’ll nurture dryer-than-usual ends to prevent splitting, too.

[$ 35;]

Shu Uemura Absolue Overnight Hair Serum

An overnight hair mask that won’t stain your pillows, Shu Uemura’s serum absorbs quick and delivers high-powered nourishment to hair. It can tame the effects of humidity (i.e. frizz), while preserving natural shine and buoyancy. You can go right into your styling regimen in the morning, since there’s no need to rinse it out.

[$ 69;]

American Crew Matte Styling Cream

Don’t be befuddled by the key ingredients in American Crew’s styling cream. Panthenol is a B5 derivative that strengthens the hair and thickens its appearance, and benzophenones help shield it from environmental damage. Together, they add moisture and prevent anything from compromising hydration levels throughout the day. You’ll get shine-free, lightweight, medium-hold style as a bonus.

[$ 15;]

Kiehl’s Damage Repairing & Rehydrating Leave-In Conditioner

Mix a few drops of Kiehl’s leave-in conditioner with your daily styler, or use it as a lightweight styling cream on its own. It’s loaded with ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and moringa oil, a trio that delivers and preserves moisture and defends hair against the elements. (If you use a blow dryer, you can also apply it before drying, so it helps shield from heat damage. But also, you should pick up an ionic dryer, per our tip at the end of this list.) This product will keep hair hydrated and soft all day; it’s the perfect complement to a nightly serum.

[$ 25;]

Davines MOMO Shampoo

This gentle gel shampoo pulls away excess grime and product without compromising the hair’s natural moisture. “What moisture?” you ask. Touché, but since you still need to wash your head, do it with a shampoo like Davines’, which uses cartucciaru melon to soften and nourish hair, as well as a host of ingredients to strengthen and protect it: Vitamin A and C, sinc, potassium, and phosphorus.

[$ 28;]

Hair Rituel by Sisley Restructuring Conditioner

If you’re super serious about fighting back against stubborn, dry hair, then use Sisley’s conditioner. With Vitamin B5, shea and coconut oils, as well as cotton proteins, it resuscitates dry, lifeless hair. In an instant, it feels fuller, softer, and more cooperative.

[$ 75;]

Parlux 385 Powerlight Ionic Hair Dryer

If you use a hair dryer to style your hair, invest in an ionic one. They dry hair quickly without the same heat-damaging effects of other devices. This one from Parlux is a great pick. It dries hair from the inside out. It’s also low-volume, lightweight, and high-powered, so you can tote it on trips and spend less time on your morning regimen.

The 7 Best Products for Thick, Wiry Hair

Some guys would do anything to have thick hair, but not you: You’d trade a limb if it meant you could find the right thick hair products to keep your full and furious mane under control. You watch with envy as other guys go through the day with effortless, weightless styles, while you contemplate a permanent buzz-cut just to save your sanity.

The 7 Best Curly Hair Products for Great Hair Days Every Day

Don’t give in to the clippers yet, though. You just have to learn how to tame the mane, and there are plenty of thick hair products to help you do it. With these simple additions to your hair care and styling routine, your perspective on thick, wiry locks will definitely change for the better.


Kevin Murphy Smooth Again Conditioner

Kevin Murphy’s conditioner uses keratin proteins to soften and smoothen thick, unruly hair. With a blend of oils and butters (like cocoa seed butter, Brazil nut butter, and monoi oil), it hydrates, tames any curls, minimizes breakage, and defends against split ends and frizzing. Use it daily to keep hair soft and smooth, and since it washes away grime, you can reduce shampoo usage to once per week.

Function of Beauty Leave-In Treatment

Complete Function Of Beauty’s questionnaire, and you’ll get a unique shampoo and conditioner for your specific hair type. Now you can also add a leave-in treatment to your order, which will increase the nourishing and softening effects of the shampoo and conditioner. Just comb it into your hair like a styling cream and wear it all day long. It tames hair while keeping it hydrated, and it shields each strand from UV exposure.

[$ 18;]

Bumble and Bumble Thick (H)air Styler

Unruly as it may be, thick hair can actually minimize the time you spend on your styling regimen. This is a heat-free cream styler, which means you apply it to towel-dried hair and let it set to avoid the drying and volumizing effects of a blow dryer. It softens, tames, de-frizzes, prevents split ends, and blocks UV rays, too.

[$ 31;]

Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3

Before you wash or condition your hair, first rinse it clean and then comb in some of Olaplex’s Hair Perfector. Let it set for 10 minutes, and then continue with your usual regimen. The treatment was formulated by two chemists who formulated it with ingredients that relax, soften, and fortify the structure of the hair, making it more cooperative—finally.

[$ 28;]

Baxter of California Grooming Cream

Guys with wiry hair can approach stylers in one of two ways: First, you can use a soft product that adds shine and definition without actually taming anything aside from frizz. These will showcase the volume and strength of your hair, but they’re not going to lock it into place. Baxter of California’s Grooming Cream is one such product. Typically we’d recommend it to guys with finer, more relaxed hair, but it’s just as useful if you use it with the right intentions. Add a touch of hair oil to it, too, if you want even more shine to pop through.

[$ 20;]

Courtesy Image

Firsthand Clay Pomade

On the other hand, you probably want a high-hold styler for most days—something that will let you lock in a combed-back style without worrying about it coming undone by noon. Firsthand’s Clay Pomade is exactly that. It gives you a matte finish, and you can use it to prop up more volumized styles. If you like the product but want more shine, drop in a pinch of hair oil.

[$ 20;]

Courtesy Image

Old Spice Beard Oil

Sure, it’s made for beards, but this oil is also great for the thick and wiry hair on your head, too. The argan-oil blend helps tame flyaways and prevent split ends, and it adds a little shine and definition to your thick texture. Just put one or two drops into your palm along with a matte styler and apply them together.

The 7 Best Curly Hair Products for Great Hair Days Every Day

When you have naturally curly hair, “perfect hair days” are often few and far between. That’s because each unruly strand has its own agenda—as do external forces like humidity, dehydration, and sun damage. To deal with this, you need curly hair products that can keep your locks hydrated but not weighed down, lifelike but also under control.

How to Get Justin Theroux’s Tousled Hair and Beard Style

That means stocking up on the right shampoo, conditioner, humidity shield, styler, and tools, and dedicating a few extra minutes each morning to applying them—it’ll spare you the frizz and fuss throughout the day. Here are our recs for the best curly hair products to try out.

SheaMoisture Detangling Shampoo

If your curls are coiled or afro-textured, they can shrink down and turn lifeless without proper nourishment. SheaMoisture’s sulfate-free shampoo doesn’t just flush away grime and grease; it also bathes hair with coconut oil, cocoa butter, red palm oil, and flaxseed oil. Together, these ingredients hydrate hair and preserve its volume and texture while shielding it from environmental damage and preventing tangles.

[$ 12;]

Davines Love Curl Shampoo

Fueled by almond extract, Davines’ Love Curl Shampoo preserves the buoyancy of wavy and curly hair. It also delivers a hint of natural shine to each strand, so your hair’s fullness and depth will be on full display. Unlike many other shampoos, this protein- and vitamin-rich formula adds moisture back into the hair (still, as with any shampoo, it’s important to follow a wash with a conditioner).

[$ 28;]

Sachajuan Curl Conditioner

We don’t advise washing your hair every day, since it can strip your hair of its natural, healthy oils. But you may need to do it more often than the average person, since those oils can also weigh curly hair down and compromise natural volume. Your best friend is a daily conditioning product that pumps nutrients back into the hair after a wash, or between washes. Sachajuan’s Curl Conditioner uses the brand’s propietary Ocean Silk Technology to lock in moisture and emphasize the volume and texture of your curls. Just comb it into your hair—in the shower or out—and rinse after one to two minutes.

[$ 31;]

Bumble and bumble Curl Defining Creme

Part styler, part leave-in conditioner, this cream helps define curls while blocking damaging UV rays and preventing frizz caused by humidity and dehydration. The oil- and humectant-packed formula keeps the hairs in line—leaving plenty of room for effortless movement. It’s most effective when applied to dry or towel-dried hair, then blown dry with a diffuser.

[$ 31;]

Courtesy Image

Ouai Wave Spray

This spray uses rice proteins to texturize (that also means it’s safe to use on color-treated hair) and it lifts hair instead of weighing it down like other products do. It’s formulated to tame your locks and prevent them from coming undone during the day, and it adds a natural shine as well.

[$ 26;]

Bio Ionic 10X Ultralight Speed Dryer

Often the best way to maintain control over your unruly curls is to blow dry them into place. Bio Ionic’s dryer does this in less time, preventing heat damage and preserving the moisture and shine in each strand. But to really treat your curls right, grab a diffuser attachment, which concentrates the hot air into smaller pockets to dry thick, curly hair more evenly.

[Blow dryer $ 29; Diffuser $ 24;]

Living Proof Humidity Shield

Humidity can ruin even the best hair day. That’s why you should have a humidity-shielding spray at the ready, and apply it at the end of your daily haircare regimen. Living Proof’s spray uses a humidity-resistant polymer that blocks both unwanted moisture and UV rays for frizz and sun protection. It helps condition the hair, too, so it won’t detract from any other products you’ve applied to your curls.

Can Men Use Women’s Skincare Products?

Using skincare products designed for women is not bad for your skin, but it’s unnecessary. Men’s skin is different, primarily due to the presence of facial hair.



In order to sustain those hair follicles, a man’s facial skin is thicker, and the blood supply richer. Follicles secrete more natural oils. When men shave, it acts as an exfoliant, getting rid of dead skin cells. And men’s skin is not exposed to the same hormonal variations as women’s.

Skincare 101: Dos and Don’ts for Better Skin

All these factors make men’s skin less susceptible to signs of aging. This is most obvious on the upper lip. Virtually all women of a certain age have vertical lip lines, but it’s rare for men. Expensive anti-wrinkle ingredients, such as alpha hydroxy acids, peeling agents, and peptides, are unnecessary.

There are, of course, some needs that are the same. Men’s facial skin loses elasticity in a fashion similar to women’s, so products that help build collagen, particularly vitamin C serum, should be used daily. A moisturizer with sunscreen is also a good idea. Few men need to apply moisturizers more than once daily, and a two-in-one makes it easy.

Try These 6 Products to Protect Your Skin This Winter

Embrace a low-maintenance routine. In the morning, wash your face and shave, then apply a serum, followed by a moisturizer with SPF. The key is sticking to it.

The Best Grooming Products That Use the Calming Powers of Sage

New Agey types swear by the “cleansing” powers of sage, constantly burning dried bundles of the herb to clear negative energy from a room. We can’t vouch for the plant’s effect on auras, but there is good reason to add it to your grooming routine.



“For many people, sage connotes feelings of freshness,” says Michael Edwards, a Australia-based fragrance expert. “The earthy scent can remind you of a vibrant cleanliness, or it might evoke memories of hearty, comforting home cooking,” he adds.

Which means using products with the herb is a sneaky form of aromatherapy. And it’s more than a moment of Zen.

13 Grooming Essentials for Men

“Herbalists believe it has astringent qualities, to help calm and soothe skin,” Edwards says.

We’ve rounded up our favorite sage-enhanced essentials, which will have you looking and feeling your best—without having to set anything on fire.

Architects Design Buildings But Do They Design Skyscrapers, or Are They Products of Their Times?

James Murray

Genre: Art & Architecture

Publish Date: January 31, 2012

Publisher: Think James Photo

Seller: James Murray

Every photo is a memory and every building is created from these memories and experiences of architects. Or are they? That is what I will discuss with you in this essay. It was written as part of my course at university but I wanted to share with you my thoughts. It is only a short piece but I hope you will gain a lot out of it. When thinking about skyscrapers two American cities come to mind, New York and Chicago. However, why do the skylines take the form they do, and is it the architects that design them, or are they a product of their time? This writing argues if architects had anything to do with the design of the early high-rise buildings discussing all the different factors that influenced their appearance.

Mouth Makeover: The Best Oral Hygiene Products You’re Not Using

Does your morning routine feature a frayed toothbrush and a glug of mouthwash? When it comes to oral hygiene, you can do better (especially since we’re finding new breakthroughs in the way oral bacteria impacts weight loss, cancer, and overall health).

Cut your teeth on these products—a mix of innovation and throwback—featuring creative flavors as well as an eye on the environment.



One heads-up: Less-mainstream brands tend to nix fluoride, a compound that helps prevent tooth decay, so ask your dentist how much of it you need, says Jenny Brunacini, a dentist in Portland, Maine.

Dental hygiene has never been this cool.

12 Awesome Fair Trade Grooming Products You Should Try

October is National Fair Trade Month. Why should this matter to you? If you’re making more ethical and informed decisions about the products you buy, whether it’s coffee or clothing, you should know the Fair Trade seal means that the farmers and workers behind the brands are paid fairly, fragile ecosystems are protected, communities are supported, and supply chains remain socially conscious. Add grooming products to your list.



Some of the best and most effective natural ingredients for your skin and hair, including coconut, argan, apricot, and brazil nut oils, are produced by small-scale farmers around the world. If you’re filling your body with organic food and drinking Fair Trade-certified beverages, consider taking the same care for the ingredients you’re slathering on your skin and hair. They’re often a healthier alternative—and easier to find than ever online and at your local stores. Here, a dozen of the best grooming products to treat your body—and your soul.

Grooming Habits Every Man Should Take up

Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wipes

Keep these portable wipes handy in your desk drawer, camping backpack, or gym bag for an instant refresh anywhere—no water required. In one swipe, you’ll tackle dirt, oil, and head off acne with the antibacterial and antiseptic properties of hero ingredient, tea tree oil. The oil, sourced from from the foothills of Mount Kenya, provides local farmers with a steady income and sustainable farming systems, and it funds area community projects, too. 

[$ 14.50;]

Out of Africa Olive Shea Butter Hand Cream

You don’t have to be a Stark or a Lannister to know that winter is coming. This super-rich hand cream, made with organic shea butter, will soften those wind-cracked hands and leathery winter skin with the healing power of vitamins A and E. The brand also works closely with women’s cooperatives in Benin, West Africa, to provide income, health benefits, and education to the community. 

[$ 11;]

Dr Bronner’s Organic Magic Balm

You may know this iconic brand for its line of organic castile soaps, but the more recently introduced Magic Balm is an equally stellar find. Apply a coating of this solid salve to new tattoos, gym-induced chafing and other assorted dry patches—from shaggy cuticles to scaly elbows to sandpaper heels—and they’ll instantly be smoother. The easy-to-use tin is chock full of organic ingredients, including beeswax, and oils from coconut, avocado, jojoba, olive, and hemp. The Fair Trade coconut oil sourced from Samoa even helps local farmers improve their land and diversify their crops.

[$ 10;]

Nubian Heritage Abyssinian & Chia Seed Bar Soap

You’ll appreciate the earthy scent of this bar soap that uses chia seeds to scrub away dirt and dead skin. The nourishing amaranth extract softens your texture while ginseng encourages smoother, revitalized, and younger-looking skin. (Check out: 20 Ways to Look Younger—Without Looking Like You’re Trying.) The brand focuses on organic and natural ingredients, and the shea butter in this soap is ethically sourced from women’s co-ops in Northern Ghana.

[$ 4;]

Cocokind Facial Repair Serum

Night time is the best time to heal the damage we do to our skin all day long. Apply just a few drops of this serum before you hit the sheets will repair damaged skin, even out your skin tone, and reduce everything from redness to sunspots. (Find out why serum is the one grooming product every guy needs.) The organic oil trifecta of softness—coconut, avocado, and rose hips—absorb quickly.

[$ 10;]

Courtesy of Cocokind

Honestly pHresh Prebiotic Natural Deodorant

A moment of truth here: The aluminum in your nuclear-strength antiperspirant that keeps your armpits dry could be harmful in high doses. Most other natural deodorants use baking soda to eliminate the bacteria that causes smells, though they can mess with the pH of your skin and give you rashes. This magnesium-enriched stick glides on easily, and attacks the bacteria that causes odor, leaving a deep and woodsy scent behind.

[$ 10;]

Courtesy of Honestly pHresh

Eco Lips Sweet Mint Balm

Tender lips shouldn’t be coated with a harsh petroleum. We like the ultra-smooth texture of this vegan balm that protects your smackers with a light and easy formula of Fair Trade sunflower and coconut oils. Vitamin E will heal the rough stuff and the stimulating mint flavor will keep your mouth feeling fresh. 

[$ 11, for 3;]

Courtesy ofEco Lips Sweet Mint Balm

Alaffia Coconut + Sea Salt Face Scrub

Get the dirt out with a natural scrub that’s tough on oil on your skin. This cleanser combines ethically traded virgin coconut oil, sea salt, and sugar for gentle exfoliation and deep cleaning that’s easy for everyday use. The brand sources the coconut oil and other ingredients through cooperatives in West Africa that empower women.

[$ 10;]

Courtesy of Alaffia

Lush Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo

Give your stressed locks a break from the drying detergents found in most shampoos. This natural formula contains Free Trade honey and linseed to add shine and softness to your hair. It even naturally moisturizes without weighing down your hair. Best of all, like all Lush products, it’s made by hand. 

[$ 14;]

Courtesy of Lush

Andalou Naturals Men Grooming Style Balm

We know, it almost seems contradictory that a natural hair styling product can control and define your unruly hair. But this formula of aloe, organic hemp seed oil, cocoa seed butter, and other earthy ingredients can tame your mane as well as your beard. (Check out: How to Tame Your Wild Beard.) You’ll appreciate the fresh scent in addition to the fact that the company uses sustainably sourced ingredients and donates a significant portion of its profits to charitable partners. Your beard will feel better, and you just might, too.

[$ 10;]


Courtesy of Andalou

Shea Moisture African Black Soap & Butter Shave Cream for Men

Great shaves start with a slick surface. Razor burn or bumps? Consider trying out this cream. The natural shea butter helps moisturize skin and creates a protective coating between your face and the blade. Bonus: Ten percent of this brand’s sales go to helping women-led businesses, or The Sofi Tucker Foundation, that helps organizations aimed at economically empowering women and their communities both across America and in Africa.

[$ 11;]

Courtesy of Shea

Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint All-One Toothpaste

You have to hand it to this California-based brand. It’s been a pioneer in sourcing ethical and natural ingredients—and continue to expand its offerings, including this tooth paste introduced last year. Inside: 70 organic ingredients, including Fair Trade and organic coconut flour and coconut oil. And, if you were wondering if it was: vegan, fluoride-free, non-GMO certified, NSF-certified, a minty paste that uses coconut flour and coconut oil to leave teeth feeling clean and bright? Well, you’re in luck.

7 Powder-Based Products to Ease Your Sweatiest, Smelliest Grooming Problems

No grooming ingredient compares to powder: Its sweat-absorbing, skin-soothing, friction-stopping powers make it an obvious choice for the active man (and the just plain sweaty man, too). Yet, powder-based products might not be on your shopping list. That’s partly because some powders are masquerading as creams, lotions, fragrances, and hair products—and it’s up to you to seek them out.

6 Best Fixes For Hair Loss

Luckily, we did that for you and identified some of the best powder products on the market. These seven will soak up odors and sweat, and leave you feeling more confident than any other product could. (Take that, beer!)

Sweat Stopper: Gold Bond No-Mess Body Powder Spray

Ever get out of the shower post-workout and find you can’t stop sweating? This body spray from Gold Bond will leave a fine sheen of powder over your body that’ll absorb moisture while delivering a hint of skin-tingling menthol. You’ll feel comfortable and cool for the first time in this godforsaken, nationwide heat wave.

[$ 14.37;]

Courtesy of Gold Bond

Fragrance: Byredo Bal D’Afrique Powdered Kabuki Fragrance

No, it’s not a makeup brush (though your significant other might try to steal it). Byredo’s Bal D’Afrique Powdered Kabuki Fragrance evenly distributes micro-fine powdered fragrance onto your skin. Work it into the pulse points on your wrist and neck. You’ll enjoy the citrus, woody, amber scent for hours. Go on and dab your beard with it, too.

[$ 65;]

Courtesy of Byredo

Foot Savior: Lush T for Toes Foot Powder

Lush has created a terrific antimicrobial product that neutralizes foot odor. Their powder utilizes kaolin (clay mineral), powdered herbs, and tea tree oil to keep your feet hydrated, while blocking moisture and preventing it from accumulating, warding off bacterial infections. Wear it daily, or just when you need it most, like pre- and post-workout or in the height of winter, when your dogs are buried in boots all day.

[$ 7.95;]

Courtesy of Lush

Junk Freshener: Pinaud Clubman Clubman Powder

Pinaud Clubman is a legacy brand in the powder biz, and its signature product will keep you feeling and smelling fresh in the nether region. A mix of cornstarch, zinc oxide, and kaolin soaks up moisture, prevents chafing, stops itches, and calms the skin. Wear your underwear when applying so it catches the loose powder. Otherwise you’ll have a snowfall around your feet. (Though they’ll benefit from the powder, too!)

[$ 6.95;]

Courtesy of Pinaud Clubman

Hair Volumizer: American Crew Boost Powder

Since you need not shampoo daily (it’ll dry out your hair and strip it off its good oils), you might need a little boost between washes to soak up the excess bad oil that weighs hair down. After rinsing and drying your hair, sprinkle in some of this hair powder, which in turn texturizes the hair and gives it a lift. You can even mix it with other dry-application stylers for a grittier, tousled finish.

[$ 17.95;]

Courtesy of American Crew

Anti Shine + Pore Reducer: Lab Series Anti-Shine Pore Treatment

If you’re a little too oily in the brow, then you might benefit from this pore-minimizing, anti-shine lotion. The powder base lowers oxidation within your pores, which prevents clogging, absorbs grease, and tightens the pore walls. It’s especially effective if you’re heading on a date or job interview; they’ll never see you break a sweat. 

[$ 34;]

Courtesy of Lab Series

Anti-Chafe: Skin Glide Anti-Chafing Cream

If you’re tree-trunky in the legs, you know a thing or two about thigh rub. It sucks. It happens when you work out; it happens in the heat; it happens when you wear shorts. And it leaves you walking bow-legged to avoid any added irritation. This powder-based cream dries onto your legs and creates a moisture barrier atop the skin. It doesn’t dry anything out, but it does halt moisture and neutralize friction. (And in turn, it prevents added funk in the area, too, since there’s a shortage of moisture.)

Sachajuan Scalp Shampoo

The skin around your eyes is thin and sensitive, and being out in the sun can cause the area to swell. Dab a little Kiehl’s Age Defender Eye Repair ($ 30) along the under-eye, post-outing (and during your regular morning routine). Its rye seed and linseed extracts help to strengthen and de-puff. []

12 Essential Grooming Products to Cool You Down This Summer

You might not think you run hot until the humidity kicks in and that thin veil of perspiration creates a Rorschach test on the back of your nice dress shirt. Or your forehead starts dripping like an ice cream cone on asphalt.


Don’t curse your interior cooling system, when you can rig it with these grooming products designed to help cool your temperature and keep you looking fresh.

8 Foods That Keep You Cool

Ursa Major of Vermont Hoppin Fresh Deodorant

Keeping your pits fresh in the heat is no easy feat. But when you’d rather not unleash chemical warfare on your underarms, this natural formula deodorant harnesses botanicals like peppermint, rosemary, grapefruit, chamomile, and lemon to keep them feeling clean. Eucalyptus fights the odor-causing bacteria and baking soda absorbs sweat.

Gillette Sensor3 Cool

Beards can feel like a face fleece in the heat, but dragging a sharp piece of metal across your mug isn’t exactly a dip in the pool, either. Luckily, Gillette added a cooling, lubricated strip to this new disposable razor that also boasts a pivoting head and a non-slip handle so your shaves are smooth and refreshing. They’re packable and affordable.

Oars + Alps Cooling and Cleansing Wipes

Keep these handy, portable wipes stashed anywhere you think you’ll need a quick pick-me-up. The rough side scrubs away bacteria from your face or body. Use the mentholated flip side to leave a tingly feeling behind. 

[$ 16;]

Blackwood for Men Cooling Clay Facial Wash

Here’s news you can use: Dirt acts like a magnet to dirt. That’s why the Japanese Tanakura Clay and charcoal in this wash is so good at drawing out the pore-clogging gunk from your sweaty summer skin. The lauric acid will keep your face smooth from bumps and blemishes.

[$ 15;]

Nivea Men Cooling Body Wash

No more red-faced returns to the office after your lunchtime workout when you use this wash. Consider the arctic feel of the mentholated formula your motivation for running extra miles on the treadmill. The invigorating sensation stays with you, even after you head into the sweaty streets.

[$ 11;]

Jack Black Dry Down Friction Free Powder

So this powder doesn’t have a frosty mentholated feel like most of the other products in this roundup—and that’s probably a good thing. But it does have cornstarch to soak up sweat in your nether regions or wherever perspiration and friction equal chafing.

[$ 22;]

Baxter of California Herbal Mint Toner

Toner isn’t fussy. Just the opposite. It’s the quickest way to the remove dirt and oil that your face cleanser leaves behind. Naturally refreshing elements, like mint, cucumber, and witch hazel combine like a power trio to help clear up redness and slow down your excess oil production. 

[$ 19;]

Harry’s Post-Shave Mist

Welcome to the cooler way to calm your face after you shave. This shave mist soothes inflamed skin with aloe while the mint, eucalyptus, and tea tree oils reinvigorate your senses. The alcohol-free formula won’t dry your skin either.

[$ 12;]

Eir Cooling Lip Balm

You’ll get that just-brushed feeling every time you swipe this mint-infused and moisturizing balm across your smackers. Coconut oil, beeswax, and shea butter will improve softness, and the bonus zinc oxide will keep your lips safe in the sun.

[$ 5;]

Ernest Supplies Cooling Shave Cream

Pack this TSA-friendly pouch when you head away for a long weekend. No matter what your destination, the triple play of pre-shave oil, moisturizing shave cream, and post-shave soother in one won’t clog up your razor—or your Dopp kit.

[$ 25;]

Corutesy of Ernest Supplies

Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels

Those tired, puffy eyes will betray your long night of beers and burritos. Freshen your face and erase your regrets in just 10 minutes with these gel patches designed to reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, and fill out fine lines. Forsake last night’s brew for this healing cocktail of peptides, ginko biloba, and Icelandic minerals. 

[$ 30;]

Redken Brews Mint Shampoo

When your head heats up, it’s difficult to regulate your temperature. Just a squirt of this tingling formula feels like rubbing an icy mint on your scalp. Use it in tepid water to really feel the chilling effects.

The Skincare Products a Dermatologist Travels With

Stale airplane air; sunny skies; dry, high-altitude environments—travel can do a number on your skin. So before you pack your bags this summer, take a cue from Kavita Mariwalla, M.D., a dermatologist in West Islip, NY, who created three skincare survival kits summer—for long flights, in hot destinations, and during mountain adventures. They’ll keep your mug as handsome (and as healthy) as ever.


For a Long Plane Ride

Courtesy Image

SkinFix Facial Cleansing Cloths

Grease and oil can build up over multi-hour flights. These cloths won’t dry you out or leave that gross filmy feeling. “They contain aloe vera and red seaweed extract which are both calming to the skin,” says Mariwalla. [$ 15;]

Aquaphor Lip Balm

Few things are worse than this feeling: dry, crackly lips with no lip balm in sight. “A small amount of Aquaphor will keep your lips hydrated and prevent the chapping that occurs from the recirculated air over several hours on a plane.” [$ 3.89;]

Phloretin CF

After you land, one pump after shaving is all you need to keep your skin looking toned and even, says Mariwalla. [$ 166;]

Colgate Wisps

You don’t need water to activate this perfect combo of breath freshener and toothpaste. That makes it perfect for use just about anywhere (even in seat 21B). [$ 7.49;]

Sigvaris Knee-High Compression Stockings

These look like business socks but also prevent your legs from swelling, making sure they don’t get tired or crampy from sitting for such a prolonged period of time. Aesthetically, Mariwalla notes that compression wear can play a role in preventing varicose (spider) veins which, yep, guys can suffer from, too. [$ 35.96;]

For a Beach Vacation

Courtesy Image

Elta UV Clear Sunscreen

If you’re still spraying tanning oil all over your face, stop. The skin on your face is more sensitive than elsewhere on your body, so treat it with a little TLC. “This face SPF goes on clear and is actually good for the skin. It won’t make you break out in acne,” says Mariwalla. (A plus.) [$ 33;]

Anthelios SPF 60 Ultra Light Spray

Now for the body. The same treatment still goes for that bottle of tanning oil: Ditch it. In lieu of tanning spray, go for Anthelios’ ultra-light spray, which Mariwalla favors for all-over use. [$ 35.99;]

RIT Sunguard

Did you know you can wash your clothes with SPF? “RIT Sunguard adds SPF 30 to all of the clothing you wash for up to 20 washes,” says Mariwalla. “I love this trick for vacations to sunny destinations.” [$ 3.99;]

Maui Jim Cinder Cone Polarized Aviator Sunglasses

Sunglasses should always be a staple for sunny locales. For true eye protection, you’ll want the lenses to be polarized. Mariwalla favors Maui Jim. [$ 299;]

For a Mountain Getaway

Courtesy Image

Lancaster Sun Sport, Ski, Wind, and Cold Protection Cream & Stick

Protect your skin with a broad-spectrum SPF that also helps keep windburn and chapped skin (from days spent in the mountains) at bay. It’s a rub-on stick, so it’s easy to carry around and apply. No excuses. [$ 25.38;]

SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic

The closer you are to the sun, the more damaging free radicals your skin is exposed to, which is why Mariwalla likes this formula that’s packed with 15 percent pure vitamin C, which helps protect against environmental damage. [$ 166;]

Neutrogena Dry Hand Cream

Altitude can leave the skin feeling uber dry. This lotion can save your hands and—best part—it is thick enough to last two days or so, she says. [$ 3.99;]

Dove Men’s Care Hydration Balance Body Wash

Tackle dryness in the shower, too, with a travel-sized bottle of this body wash that moisturizes and balances skin (and can be picked up just about anywhere). [$ 13.98/10-pack;]

The Top 10 Grooming Products From The Art of Shaving

When it comes to getting the perfect shave, you know not just any tool will do. You need the right grooming products—that includes a razor, shaving cream, brushes, and after-shave balms. But sifting through all the products in a store or online can get overwhelming when all you really want is to get the best, fuss-free shave possible.

Luckily, there are a few places that make all of this a little easier on you—and your stubble–like The Art of Shaving.

6 Anti-aging Products That'll Save Your Skin

So if you’re in dire need to stock up on shaving products, we’ve found a few must-haves you should get your hands on, from brushes and razors to moisturizers and soaps.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Bourbon Shave Collection After-Shave Balm

Providing your skin with moisture is crucial to its health. This balm is infused with shea butter and glycerin to replenish and condition cells for a smoother appearance. 

[$ 55;]

The Art of Shaving

Unscented Shaving Cream

This shaving cream is made to soften and lift your hair for a close and comfortable shave. We love this product because it can be used with or without a shaving brush; it’s also free from synthetics and dyes. As a bonus, it qualifies for the brand’s replenishment service, which allows you to save money with every purchase.

[$ 25;

The Art of Shaving

Black Pure Shaving Brush

Using a shaving brush to apply your cream will give you a closer shave, because it lifts your beard and generates a rich, foamy lather. The Black Pure Shaving Brush is designed to retain water to help soften your beard; it’ll also lightly exfoliate your skin.

[$ 60;]

The Art of Shaving

Eucalyptus SPF 15 Daily Facial Moisturizer

Eucalyptus and chamomile oils work harmoniously to create a lightweight moisturizer that re-energizes your skin. The non-greasy, quick-absorbing formula helps protect your skin from UV rays and early skin aging. For optimum protection, apply this moisturizer 15-30 minutes prior to sun exposure. 

[$ 35;]

The Art of Shaving

Rosemary Hair Shampoo

Cleansing your hair can strip valuable moisture. But this shampoo, formulated with a special blend of rosemary, peppermint, and eucalyptus essential oils actually promotes hair growth and leaves your hair with a natural shine.

[$ 24;]

The Art of Shvaing

Bergamot Neroli Pre-Shave Oil

It’s imperative you prep your skin before you shave. This Bergamot Neroli Pre-Shave Oil will provide a protective layer to prevent against irritation and razor burn. It’s infused with citrus and sweet floral notes for an awakening scent. You can also get this product as frequently as you need, thanks to The Art of Shaving’s replenishment service.

[$ 30;]

The Art of Shaving

Sandalwood Body Soap

Made with glycerin, coconut oil, and essential oils, this soap conditions skin while simultaneously removing dirt and oils with each use. A must-have product, this soap also falls under the replenishment service to save you money.

[$ 18;]

The Art of Shaving

Gel Pomade Hair Styling Product

Gel pomades are a great addition to any man’s grooming arsenal. The Gel Pomade Hair Styling Product provides medium hold, making it easy to reapply and style throughout the day. Infused with juniper oil, your hair will be left with a light shine and noticeable body.

[$ 22;]

The Art of Shaving

Exfoliating Sisal Sponge

While you’re at it, give the rest of your body some TLC. The exfoliating sponge is made of soft knit sisal fibers with a lightweight flexible design for the ultimate cleansing experience. It’s also super affordable, so stop using your hands and pick up this sponge.

[$ 10;]

The Art of Shaving

Unscented Shaving Soap With Wooden Bowl

If you’re all about the wet-shave experience, this soap is right up your alley. Each use creates a rich foamy lather that helps to protect your skin from irritation and razor burn. Formulated with glycerin and coconut oil, its free of synthetic dyes and alcohol. As a bonus, the teak wooden bowl helps to keep your soap secure in various environments.

4 Can’t-Live-Without Grooming Products You Should Add to Your Routine

Long gone are the days when men had to siphon off facial moisturizers, serums, and hairspray marketed to women that they found in the medicine cabinet. There are a bevy of products out there for men in masculine scents: cedar, tobacco, leather.

However, there’s a big group of guys who don’t want to smell like a cigar club—and an equal number of women who eschew sweet, floral scents that are sold to the fairer sex. Over the last year, the products in my bathroom have shifted to almost exclusively unisex. The scents tend to be clean and herbaceous, and all the products are on the must-have list (instead of nice-to-have—I wouldn’t know firsthand, but I have yet to meet the guy who needs four kinds of beard oil). Check out some of our current favorites, below, that you’ll want to add to your regular routine.

20 Ways to Look Younger — Without Looking Like You’re Trying

EIR NYC Pitted Deodorant
Courtesy image

EIR NYC Pitted Deodorant
This Brooklyn-based all-natural unisex brand has quite a few products I use on the regular, particularly the Surf Mud Pro face stick for SPF protection and the fizzy Active Face Wash. But it’s the deodorant I’m particularly crazy about. It comes in a biodegradable tube, and is non-obvious enough that I can throw it in my bag if I know it’s going to be a hot one. The protection is as good as I get from drugstore brands, and I love the smell of evergreen trees and sand, reminiscent of the northern coast of California. This is the sort of thing I stock up on and give to my friends to try.

[$ 22;]

Maapilim Facial Mud Mask
Courtesy image

Maapilim Facial Mud Mask
If you haven’t tried a mud mask before, you’re going to love it. Cake this stuff on, which smells soothing, like a ceramics studio, wait until it gets dry and matte, and wash it off with a cloth. Clear pores and oil-free skin await, which makes this a summer must-have. Getting it off can be a bit of a production, so if you’re short on time in the morning, rub some across your nose and chin, have coffee and brush your teeth while it dries, then wipe off the mud and go.

[$ 38;]

Sachajuan Dry Powder Shampoo
Courtesy image

Sachajuan Dry Powder Shampoo
There are some mornings that a full post-workout in the shower isn’t in the cards and the best you can hope for is a paper towel wipe-down and forgiving coworkers. On those days, I add one more thing to the express itinerary—dry shampoo. These products are supposed to give you a quick refresh and soak up some scalp sweat. Fair enough. But often, they come out too powdery and you turn out looking like an 18th century barrister. This spray comes out fast, cold, and mostly clear. Plus, it gives your hair a little lift and style as it dries.

[$ 35;]

Youth Corridor Ultimate Antioxidant C Boost Serum
Courtesy image

Youth Corridor Ultimate Antioxidant C Boost Serum
I’m 34, but a few months ago I realized there were lines and sagging on my face that made me look (and feel) quite a bit older. So I’ve been pretty religious about applying a few drops of this serum to my mug every morning, and man has it made a difference. My skin looks brighter and it’s more resilient, especially when I spend the whole day in the sun. And it feels healthier to the touch. It’s pricey, but a bottle should last you about a year.

6 Grooming Products That Will Save Your Hair This Winter

There is no doubt as the weather cools down, the air gets dryer, and the wind whips around with brutal force, your skincare needs shift. You can have dry, flakey skin and itchy, ashy patches. So every winter you do something about it—you buy lotion, maybe you turn down the temperature of the water during your showers, and you dust off the humidifier to emit moisture while you sleep.

Our 3 Favorite Multitasking Grooming Products

You wouldn’t use a shampoo as a face wash or a moisturizer as a hair gel — but maybe you should. “We’ve been programmed to require separate cleansers for face and scalp,” says Jeremy B. Green, a Miami-based dermatologist, but you don’t need a million things in your gym bag or shower. With the right ingredients, a product can work well for hair, face, and body. For example, a cleanser with a hydrating ingredient like coconut oil can pull triple duty, providing enough slip for a shave, purging dirt without drying, and giving hair a thorough clean. And a face moisturizer with an emollient like shea butter can double as a styling tool for your hair or beard. “Softening your beard and the skin underneath with a moisturizer helps a beard grow better and look healthier,” says Oscar Blandi, the New York grooming specialist who has tamed Jimmy Fallon’s mop. Here, we’ve made things even simpler by finding three products that, together, are all you need to look your best.

My All Time Favorite Beauty Products and Why

Over the years I have tested and tossed a countless number of products. I like to keep up with the current trends and I enjoy testing out new things to find those hidden gems. More often than not, however, end up going back to my tried and true products that I have been using for years. I call these products my classics, and as long as they are on the market they will remain in my beauty arsenal forever. These products have never let me down and have been beneficial to me in my skin care, hair care and over all makeup routine. Below are my all time favorite products and why I love them so much.

Clearasil Daily Clear Daily Face Wash: 6.5 OZ

This face wash has worked wonders for me. It is better than any of the expensive face washes I have tried on the market. It is made from a gentle formula that is fragrance free and has never irritated my skin. I use it twice a day and it always leaves my skin feeling clean and soft.

Olay 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths, Normal Skin, 66 Count

These face clothes come in so handy when I’m traveling. They are convenient and work great. I never have to worry about spills in my luggage when using these. They lather up wonderfully and I can use the cloth to get a deeper scrub into my skin. I am always left with skin that feels soft, fresh and clean.

Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask, 16.9-Ounce Jar

I style my hair often and unfortunately that means my hair is exposed to a lot of heat. I leave this mask in my hair for about 10-15 minutes twice a week and it helps put the moisture back in my hair and keeps it looking healthy and shiny.

Batiste Dry Shampoo, Clean and Classic, 6.73 Ounce

I definitely don’t wash my hair everyday. On the in-between days I like to use this dry shampoo to pull out the excess oils in my hair. I have used many dry shampoos and I have found this one to be the best. It doesn’t leave a build up and my hair looks and feels clean even on the days it isn’t washed.

Clarisonic Mia 1 Skin Cleansing System, White

I love this little machine. My skin has never been smoother or brighter. The motion of the bristles gently scrub away imperfections and dead skin. It keeps my pores clean and evens out the texture of my skin. It comes with its own cleaners but I use the cleansers of my choice and still get amazing results.

Tweezerman Stainless Steel Slant Tweezer, Pink

I am a huge advocate of getting your eyebrows professionally done. We all know, however, that sometimes we just don’t get around to it and are left with growing caterpillars above our eyes. For these desperate times I use the Tweezerman Slant Tweezers. These tweezers have the ability to grab hold of the tiniest hairs that I used to struggle with using other brands. They are extremely precise, even on the finest of hairs.

The Balm Mary-lou Manizer Aka The Luminizer Shimmer, Highlighter and Eyeshadow, with Twinbeauty Brush

Highlighting and contouring has been around forever but has recently become a huge trend. Beauty bloggers across the world post instructional videos on how to get the perfect highlight and contour. This product has been a wonderful highlight for me and I believe it is good for any skin tone. It leaves a golden look to the skin providing it with a healthy glow. A little goes a long way with this product so be careful not to overdo it.

Aquaphor Healing Ointment, Dry, Cracked and Irritated Skin Protectant, 14 Ounce

I have suffered from extremely dry skin my whole life. This is a condition that seems even more apparent in the winter months. After I shower I apply this cream all over my body for some dry skin relief. I even carry some in my bag to apply on my hands throughout the day.

Crest 3D White Luxe Whitestrips Professional Effects – Teeth Whitening Kit 20 Treatments

No more $ 400 whitening sessions at the dentist for me. For the past few years I have been using Crest White Strips every 12 to 18 months. The results are always mind blowing. After using these I notice I get a ton of complements on how white my smile is. I no longer have to deal with messy trays and goopy gels. These strips adhere nicely to my teeth and I only have to leave them on for 30 minutes a day. When the treatment is over I am always so impressed with the results.

Beauty Blender Original Blender Sponge – 0.15 oz

I know I talk about this product a lot but I cannot reiterate enough how helpful the beauty blender has been for my own application as well as the application of makeup on my clients. If you want airbrushed results without spending all that money on an airbrush machine I suggest giving this product a try. You wont regret it. I love how smooth my makeup looks after using the beauty blender to apply my foundation.

Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Normal, 4.0 fl oz

I have been using this product for well over 15 years now. Even when I try to swap out for some of the fancier products I still always come back to this. It does not flake like other moisturizers can and it looks great on the skin with or without makeup. I use this lotion every time I wash my face and it has never failed me. The formula is gentle, it doesn’t clog my pores and it leaves my skin looking hydrated all day.

News in Brief: Americans Outraged Amazon’s Punishing Work Culture Has Yet To Yield Same-Day Shipping For All Products

WASHINGTON—After revelations emerged regarding the online retailer’s cutthroat office environment, Americans across the nation expressed outrage Wednesday that Amazon’s punishing workplace culture had yet to result in same-day shipping for every single available product. “They have 50,000 employees working 85 hours a week, and I still have to wait at least until tomorrow to receive my Pacific Rim DVD?” said Chelmsford, MA resident Jordan Krause, who was among the millions of customers shocked to learn that same-day shipping was not a universal feature of all Amazon merchandise despite the company’s alleged harsh and exploitative workplace culture. “Employees hardly have any time to see their children, but somehow they can’t get me everything I want the very day I want it? What kind of company are they running over there? Bet I’ll also have to sit around a full 24 hours for this electric …

Skin Care Products That Make a HUGE Difference in Your Skin, According to a Celebrity Makeup Artist

By Beth Shapouri, Glamour

(Photo: Kyle Ericksen)

Celebrity makeup artists always know the best skin care products–they need them to keep their clients’ skin in good shape under heavy on-camera foundations and to avoid irritation through multiple makeup changes. And Andréa Tiller, a makeup artist whose work you’ve seen on lovely women like Olivia Culpo and Amy Schumer, is one of those people we count on to know. Luckily last night she was in a sharing mood, spilling the details of three of her all-time favorites on Instagram, writing, “I can’t live without these! Seriously!” and adding “I have also used these on my clients as skin prep and they love them!”

Here are the products that currently have her heart:

Sisley Paris All Day All Year Cream ($ 410, She says, “This cream does it all! It’s amazing for daytime use. It has sunscreen in it that lasts up to eight hours! This is rare because most moisturizer’s sunscreen lasts up to four hours.” She continued, “This is usually my last step before I put on my makeup–no need for primer. Did I also mention it’s anti-aging? It’s really gentle on my skin and doesn’t feel oily!” One last point: “This is also for all skin types including sensitive and oily.” What makes it worth $ 410, you may ask? The micro-encapsulated filter technology that blocks out 90 percent of UV rays for hours on end as well as the fact that it contains 12–yes, 12–active ingredients that protect and repair skin.

Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment, ($ 69, “I am obsessed with this mud mask–I’ve been using this brand for years. If for a second I feel my face is about to break out I put this on and any blemish is gone and flat the next day. It’s a miracle worker!”

Vintners Daughter Active Botanical Serum ($ 185, “This is such a beautiful face oil, I highly recommend it. I’ve been using it for a couple of months and my skin is radiant and softer!” How she applies: “I use it every night before bed and wake up glowing.” Pricey but, she says, “worth every penny!”

8 Must-Try Korean Beauty Products From Tonymoly

Known for its saccharine packaging and bizarre ingredients, South Korean beauty company Tonymoly has been around for almost a decade. And with the opening of a New York City store in Koreatown, it’s clear that the U.S. is finally catching on to the skin-care-centric brand. I recently visited the new flagship location with one of our favorite Korean beauty bloggers, Charlotte Cho of Soko Glam, where she mapped out her favorite Tonymoly products.

7 Products for a Post-Workout Makeover: Here’s What You Need in Your Gym Bag

nicolas kern vogue april 2014

It’s a common dilemma: You may have found a favorite high-intensity exercise class, but do you have a good post-cooldown routine for freshening up all worked out? Stepping onto the city streets with wet baby curls and purple-tinged cheeks defies logic when you’ve spent the past hour or so pushing yourself to the limits with the aim of feeling good on the inside and outside.

Fortunately, a gym bag packed with the right essentials can make all the difference. If time is limited, Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes will solve the shower dilemma and buy you some time between the end of class and the route home. These neatly packaged bamboo cloths refresh and exfoliate while removing sweat and excess oil, without stripping skin—genius. Slathering on Shiseido’s Urban Environment sunscreen, meanwhile, restores that essential sun barrier and doubles as a creamy moisturizer, while Klorane’s cult Dry Shampoo renders washing hair, for a while at least, pretty much redundant.

For those who wouldn’t dare entertain such a thought, Yves Durif’s wide-tooth detangling comb deserves bag space: It’s the perfect way to scrape wet hair into a slick, shower-fresh knot. As do Josie Maran’s multitasking color stick and Tweezerman’s arguably life-changing lash curler. The final touch? Pinrose’s collection of slim, single-dose travel fragrances, tagged with kooky and uplifting names like Campfire Rebel and Garden Gangster. Now who wouldn’t feel empowered for the remainder of the evening after a couple of dabs of that?

Top Summer Beauty Products 2015 – Get a Healthy, Glowing Complexion


Summer beauty products are always a good excuse to try something new, but if you have skin allergies, you need to be selective.

Allergic reactions to summer beauty products can come from harsh chemicals and toxic ingredients that may be hiding in those trendy seasonal staples. Instead of piling on extra products to cover up, now is the perfect time to strip down your beauty routine and nourish your skin with just the basics. Certain products work perfectly to help soothe your skin all summer long like these top 4 summer beauty products for 2015.

Cerave Cream: For Dry Skin or Eczema

If you’re part of the club that still manages to get dry skin on the hottest days of the year, yes we know that club all too well, we recommend this moisturizer. Cerave products have specially formulated cleansers, moisturizers, sunscreens, even baby products designed to help dry and irritated skin. If you are dealing with a bad rash or eczema, you may consider trying some of their moisturizing cream to help heal the irritation just in time for that upcoming housewarming party.

Cetaphil: A great choice for a light moisturizer

Although you’ve probably heard this moisturizer mentioned time and time again, there’s a reason why it’s a tried and true summer beauty product that everyone from doctors to beauty junkies recommend. It’s light enough for all skin types and has a broad spectrum SPF to help combat any further sun irritation. Awarded the Good Housekeeping seal and a recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation, this moisturizer also claims to improve the skin’s ability to retain vital moisture without clogging pores.

Vaseline: Try it around the eyes before bedtime

We’ve all used Vaseline for our lips and hands, but did you know that it’s perfect for around the eyes at bedtime? Vaseline is made of 100% pure petroleum jelly, it’s hypoallergenic, and won’t clog pores, meaning that it’s good for a large portion of allergy sufferers. Tap a little around your eye area before you go to bed and let it do its magic while you sleep.

Coconut oil: A great sealant after you moisturize

Coconut oil has been a hot product in the beauty industry for quite some time and just like Vaseline, this oil is great because it has just one magic ingredient. Coconuts are naturally packed with vitamin E and fatty acids that help nourish skin without leaving it too greasy. Plus, this stuff smells so good you’ll want to eat it and that’s okay because you can. Just make sure you get a separate container to keep in the kitchen to avoid cross contamination!

If you’re hesitant about what products to use, talk to your doctor before your try something new. Make sure to get a lesson on what ingredients could trigger your allergies and pause to read the labels before you buy.

The Best Beauty Glamping from Coast to Coast—And the Products You Need to Pack


Tomorrow, Netflix will premiere Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp with nearly the entire cast of 2001’s cult classic film returning to Camp Firewood for the eight episode series. Between watching Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, and Marguerite Moreau make lakeside rounds in ringer tees and braids, and the Instagrams documenting the U.K.’s glamping-centric Wilderness festival that will inevitably fill our feeds next month, we’ve become rightly nostalgic for our own camping days. Luckily, there are a number of cabins, tents, yurts, and airstreams across the country that address our more grown-up needs: Think horseback riding, massages, and personal chefs in place of the swimming buddies and talent shows of yesteryear. Here, four beauty-centric glamping retreats that prove getting in touch with nature doesn’t mean forgoing electricity—and the beauty products we’ll be taking with us.

Those who truly want to get away from it all can make like Donald Judd and decamp to the vast desert of West Texas’s Marfa, where this 21-acre site of Beyoncé-approved airstreams, safari tents, tepees, and yurts will become the backdrop for your mental and physical rejuvenation. In between biking to Judd’s art-filled airplane hangars, which put the town on the pilgrimage-worthy map in the seventies, and concerts at the nearby Ballroom Marfa, campers can lounge in hammock groves and soak in wood-fired hot tubs under the big Texas sky. Leave your dopp kit behind—El Cosmico’s store carries locally made soap, organic beauty products, and its own line of face oil, body oil, and perfume.

Canvas yurts with skylights and private decks dot the precipitous cliffs of Big Sur. But Treebones’s guests can take in the uninterrupted ocean views from the property’s heated pool and hot tub, tree-branch-crafted “nest,” and farm-to-table restaurant, which sources produce straight from its on-site organic garden. Head out for a calorie torching hike and kayak session, and call ahead to have your in-room masseuse waiting for your return. Yoga can wait until tomorrow.

Nightly bonfires and safari-style luxury tents (with heat, air conditioning, and electricity) set the tone at this Montana getaway, nestled at the junction of the Blackfoot River and Elk Creek. The 37,000-acre ranch and resort will reward your days spent fly fishing, practicing yoga, and riding horses amidst the Rocky Mountains with a restorative soak in your in-room copper tub or a detoxifying body wrap and shiatsu massage at the glampsite’s own “spa town.” Better yet, each tent comes equipped with its own butler and chef, meaning that your energy can be saved for tomorrow’s activities.

Manhattanites need only cross the Williamsburg Bridge for a little rustic charm. The neighborhood plays host to a log cabin that marries the best of the country and the city: A vintage wood-burning potbelly stove neighbors a clawfoot tub surrounded by white subway tiles and a raw wooden sauna offers retreat before heading to dinner at one of the neighborhood’s charming restaurants. Sleeping in a rough-hewn wood frame bed means you won’t have to skip your Brooklyn Body Burn class in the morning. Before leaving, stock up on local beauty treasures, from the curated selection of lipsticks and cheek tints at Catbird’s jewel box boutique to SW Basics’ eco-minded transformative hibiscus face mask.

Hair Magic, Bottled: 8 After-Sun Products to Make Damage Disappear

Photographed by Mikael Jansson, Vogue, March 2014

The holiday weekend likely found you partaking in a variety of sun-drenched revelry. And while a pre-barbecue slathering of SPF cream may have kept skin hydrated, your hair is a different story. Sea-soaked, pool-dipped, generally exposed lengths are due for a bit of after-sun damage control—and the best restorative hair treatments this season start at the root.

Pre-rinse, reach for a softening scalp and hair oil like Phyto’s Huile D’Alès Hydrating Treatment, which, when left on for 30 minutes before washing, infuses hair with a blend of humidity-proofing castor, sage, lemon, rosemary, and juniper berry oils, or Rahua’s Hair Elixir, which transforms dry strands using a natural nut oil harvested in the Amazon rainforest and used for centuries by local women.

If build-up is the issue, O&M Original Detox Shampoo’s blend of cooling Australian river mint and peppermint oil removes chlorine—making the right conditioner that much more effective. Davines Su Hair Mask can be combed through for a day at the beach to minimize color fading and damage and used afterward to restore with antioxidant Vitamin C and shea butter. For good measure, try a lightweight tonic to smooth the cuticle, whether it’s Rodin by Recine’s addictive alchemic concoction of eight essential oils—apricot, calendula, sweet almond, sunflower, and neroli amongst them—or Fekkai’s Après Soleil Crème. Here, eight products designed to bring parched hair back to life, ensuring good memories and a healthy glow will be the only remnants of a long weekend spent sun-worshipping.

10 Beauty Products This Skin-Care Freak Depends On

At my job interview here at, the editor straight-up asked if I was a beauty girl. Through the haze that shrouds all interview-related memories, I recall all-too-honestly confessing that I was generally too lazy to pull off masterful, salon-level blowouts or ten-step smoky eyes myself. But, I assured her, I was an absolute skin-care nutcase. (It was the first time I could seamlessly bring up my four years as a—top-selling, thank you very much!—sales associate at The Body Shop as a valid credential.) The college job embedded a serious respect for (and deep dependency on) vitamin C, shea butter, grape-seed oil, and other natural ingredients. During the past two years, my already-high skin-care standards have grown even loftier, and my beauty-product dance card has gone from full to overflowing. Here are its MVPs.

The Foolproof Beach Body: 10 Products for Prepping Your Skin

Photographed by Mikael Jansson, Vogue, May 2009

Summer’s balmy temperatures and ocean views are best enjoyed in paper-thin slip dresses and modern maillots—which is to say that for the next three months, your skin will have its day in the sun. With that in mind, the season’s best products are designed to get your limbs glowing from the sanctuary of your bathtub. Mio’s body-perfecting dry brush does the trick before you turn on the water by boosting circulation and sloughing away dead skin particles, while the New York City superfacialist Mila Moursi’s Revitalizing & Beautifying Oil seals in nourishing Vitamins E, F, and A après shower and leaves behind a healthy sheen—essentially the perfect parentheticals to your bathing routine.

Much can be done from inside the tub as well: Clarisonic makes a whirring brush head specifically designed for the body that’s especially good at exfoliating elbows, knees, and feet. Follow it with Malin + Goetz’s addictive peppermint-scented bamboo and pumice scrub for a smooth canvas for self-tanner or sunscreen. In recent months, the top beauty companies have also managed to multitask effectively, designing breakthrough in-shower lotions that are, in some cases, more effective than a traditional body moisturizer. Jergens’s innovative in-shower lotion, which is applied to wet skin immediately after you’ve turned off the water, provides twice the moisture of a standard cream and locks in a blend of hydration and coconut oil when it’s smoothed over skin—no rinsing required. In need of an instant tan? St. Tropez’s In Shower Gradual Tan can be applied to clean, wet skin (and washed away three minutes later) to bestow a gradual golden effect to even the palest complexions while simultaneously providing a dose of moisture. Here’s to leaving your body looking and feeling all together born again.

The 5 Emotional Stages Of Dudes Learning About Period Products

We’ll give them an A for effort… but that’s about it.

In a new video created by V.Point News and charity organization Plan U.K., six guys attempt to answer questions about different menstrual products and how each is used. From confused stares to worried looks, most of the dudes were underprepared for the period pop-quiz.

The dudes went through a whole spectrum of emotions on their crash course, including:





And, of course, awe:

“It looks like something the doctor checks your ears with,” one man said about a tampon. Another guy was having some trouble figuring out how women use a tampon: “This is some rocket science.”

When the host asked one man why he thinks people tend to not talk about menstruation, he responded: “The stigma around talking about menstruation is the bigger issue than [talking about] the tampon. No periods, no babies — no babies no future. So how important is it to understand about menstruation? It’s very important.” Preach.

Watch the full video above.

Does Your Face Cream Belong in the Refrigerator? A 3-Step Guide to Storing Beauty Products

Kate Moss Mario Testino Vogue

From technologically advanced retinols to face creams that share ingredients with your cold-pressed juice, our daily beauty regimens have never been more diverse. Which begs the question: Do some of these products really need to be kept in the refrigerator rather than the medicine cabinet?

Some beauty brands think so. Los Angeles–based Odacité sells a mini-fridge designed to keep its antioxidant-rich serums at 54–59 degrees Fahrenheit so that plant extracts remain fresh for as long as possible. But before you start tossing bottles of wine and stalks of rhubarb to make room for mascaras and moisturizers, cosmetic chemist Ni’Kita Wilson and chemist turned facialist Kristina Holey say there are simple guidelines to follow when it comes to storing your beauty arsenal. Here, from dark bottles to the products you probably never imagined would share space with your Greek yogurt, are their three-step pro tips.

1. What to keep out of direct sunlight:
Both Wilson and Holey agree that nothing from your beauty haul should ever be exposed to the fluctuating temperatures of steamy bathrooms or sun-soaked windowsills, as heat and light can change chemical structures, degrading a product’s potency and possibly creating an environment for bacterial growth. But certain ingredients are more prone to temperature-caused destabilization and should always be kept cool: Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), retinol, benzoyl peroxide, DHA (an omega-3 fatty acid), and anything that’s preservative-free including organic lipsticks and cheek stains. Wilson stores these items on the lowest shelf in her home office, away from direct sunlight. “From my bedroom, my office is on the way to the bathroom, so it’s easy to pick them up and put them back,” she says. However, the latest high-tech nano formulas are more stable and Wilson says they don’t require “such tender loving care.”
2. What to keep in the dark:
Organic creams and serums, says Holey, should be treated like anything you would buy at the farmer’s market. “The key to using natural lines is to only buy what you will use in the next month or so for efficacy.” She evens trades out mascara and lipstick after about four weeks. Holey stores facial products in a black linen bag on her bedroom vanity. “I put facial oils on my body, so everything is in the same bag. I keep one bottle of In Fiore Face Oil Concentré in my purse. I move through it quickly so I’m not too concerned about it changing too much chemically,” she adds.

Dark bottles will also help prolong the efficacy of natural oils, serums, and sunscreens. But, the quickest tip for preserving any product is to put a lid on it. Oxidation—the chemical change that happens when oil comes into contact with air—can have more negative effects than temperature, resulting in spoiled solutions. Holey suggests closing bottles immediately after using them—especially if a shower is running—to keep out air and steam.
3. When keeping cool is necessary:
Some products, however, truly do last longer under cold temperatures, and the ones that will find a home among your produce may surprise you. Wilson acknowledges that she refrigerates her favorite perfumes, especially the “fine fragrances that I want to preserve for more than a year.” She says cold temperatures help slow the separation process of key ingredients in mixtures. “Nail polish is all about suspension,” she says. “Keeping the pigments suspended in the formula will preserve the life of the polish.”

10 Cruelty-Free Beauty Products for Oily Skin

If you are anything like me, you find yourself awkwardly googling brand names in the middle of Ulta (Walgreens, Target, Nordstrom, etc, etc), trying to make sure they don’t test on animals. This process is not made any easier when you have grabbed 7 bottles (pots, creams, lotions, concealers, etc), and now have to decide under pressure, if they will hold up on a hot summer day.

So to save you some time, here is a list of 10 brands not tested on cute bunnies, that are also perfect if you have oily or combination skin.


TARTE: I love Tarte, and especially like their blushes. This brand was started by a lady entrepreneur (and you know #girlbosses are my jam) because she couldn’t find a makeup line that was all natural. So she made one herself! Ingredients are harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked in the sun, The blushes are highly pigmented and don’t feel sticky. “Watermelon” and “Natural Beauty” are my favorites! The ingredients are all non toxic, and you can feel good about putting them on your skin! It’s practically like doing a mud treatment, right?

NYX: I love this brand. They have tons of great products and it is super affordable! You can find it almost anywhere and it is totally animal friendly. My faves are the liquid black liner, and the kohl liner.

HOURGLASS: The Immaculate foundation by Hourglass is a bit different then what you may be used to. It has sort of a whipped texture, and dries very fast on the skin, so make sure to be quick. I prefer to apply it with a buffing motion using a flat foundation brush myself. I used this on my wedding day after trying approximately 12 different foundations, as my worst fear was being shiny and oily on my day! This thing DID NOT move. Combine with the Becca Primer and your face will not move for days (but I hope you wash it that night).


ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS: The Brow Wiz. Alright now, let’s talk about the Brow Wiz. This is BY FAR, the best eyebrow product I have ever used in my life. I am obsessed and have gone through 5 in the last 2 years. They are amazingly thin and accurate, something I find very helpful, and perfectly pigmented, so that even if you have a heavy hand you won’t be looking like Martin Scorsese! I. am. addicted.


URBAN DECAY: If you haven’t heard yet, the Naked Palettes are amazing. The powders are super pigmented, and in combination with a good primer, do not crease at all! I personally use the Naked 2, and in my opinion it’s the best and most blend-able for my skin tone (olive).

BECCA:The Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector is the real deal. It is SUPER thick and super long-lasting. Recommended for your longer wear days, as it is truly a matte finish. One bottle has lasted me over a year! If you have oily skin, maybe get a sample at Sephora before investing the $ 36! It’s one of those I like to have for hot and humid days, as it is too heavy duty for every-day wear.

PHILOSOPHY: This is such a fun and clean brand. I love all the smells and how effective the skin care is. I love using Amazing Grace for cleaning my makeup brushes, because it doesn’t leave any residue, and I am a total NO RESIDUE lover!

BARE ESCENTUALS: The Warmth Bronzer has been my favorite since High School. It just does something amazing for your face no matter what complexion you have. It immediately warms it up, with an almost photoshop-like effect. It’s pure love between us. This brand is totally bunny friendly and natural, and I recommend you trying some of their products as you are sure to love at least one.

KAT VON D: The Lock It concealer is one of my favorites! It is heavy duty, no transfer, almost like the stuff they make for covering up tattoos. It is also oil and paraben-free, which is a total plus!

ALBA BOTANICA: This brand has several skin and hair care products, of which my favorite is the oil-free moisturizer. They smell great and are non-toxic as well!
