Baxter of California Launches Safety Razor Set

Baxter Double Edge Safety Set

With the redesign of their Silver Tip Badger Brush, Baxter of California marries beauty and craftsmanship for the release of its safety razor set. Made in Germany, the set takes design cues from the classic barbershop pole, which is used for an engraved pattern on the handles of the badger brush and safety razor. Those of you that shave in the shower will appreciate this important grip detail. The handles are also brass, nickel plated and finished in chrome.

This is class all the way gents.

Amazon Enters Men’s Grooming Category

Amazon Mens Grooming StoreIf there was ever a sign that the men’s grooming category is on fire, consider this: Amazon just launched a curated section on its site with the purpose of making it easier for you to get the products you need. The Men’s Grooming Store carries a wide selection of men’s brands such as Baxter of California, Nivea for Men, Dove Men+Care, Norelco and Gillette to name a few.

You maybe asking yourself what makes the Men’s Grooming Store so different from logging onto Amazon.com and typing in any brand you’re interested in? Within this dedicated shop, users have access to how-to guides and tips and tricks from experts, etc. I’d say that’s a nice added benefit. Who knows, maybe you’ll read some of my tips there sooner or later. (A blogger could dream, right?)

Men tend to surf the web quickly and this new store makes it easy for us to jump around and get to the point. Searchable categories include skincare, haircare, shaving, oral care, bodycare and kits & gift sets. I think you’ll appreciate that. One thing I’d like to see is more of the little guys getting space on there but it’s early and I’m an optimist. In the interim, finding some of your beloved brands just got a little easier.

Travel Essentials For Weekend Getaways

Memorial Day Essentials 

Memorial Day is approaching and that weekend we celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer. Queue backyard and rooftop barbecues, casual and summer Fridays and ice coffee-everything. And since summer and everything fun is all we begin thinking about, it’s when we start thinking about running away for the weekend.

I love hopping down to Philadelphia and exploring its burgeoning food scene and maybe, just maybe I’ll make it to Maine this year. One thing I’ve come to realize, however, is although you’re escaping for a few days, you can’t depend on your hotel to stock quality grooming essentials. Grab these essentials and take them along for the ride.

Kiehl’s
Since you can’t take everything with you, where will you cut a corner? Maybe a 2-in-1 product is what you need and why not look to Kiehl’s for the answer. Their Cross-Terrain All-In-One Refueling Wash is packed with goodies like Aloe Vera, vitamin E, and citrus oil and will keep you squeaky clean from head to toe.

Bulldog Natural Skincare
Since your routine will be thrown off in the name of fun, slash time of your morning shave sensibly. Bulldog Natural’s shave gel has 8 essential oils, aloe Vera and jojoba to moisturize, and protect your face, while quickly moving your razor along sans any irritation.

Baxter of California
While the look of Baxter of California’s Citrus deodorant can be deceivingly simple, it packs a subtle punch. It’s so light you won’t even notice you’re being protected all day long.

Ursa Major
Loaded with all natural and organic ingredients, here is another combo pack you don’t want to leave behind. Ursa Major’s Fortifying Face Balm fights ingrown and razor burns with its soothing antiseptic properties, and provides anti-aging benefits. The best part, all of that won’t leave your face feeling greasy as it quickly absorbs into you skin.

Thirdman
The beautiful thing about fresh, citrus scents is they can be worn anywhere. One of the things that has bothered me about them is that many lack depth. Thirdman has created a collection of invigorating Eau de Cologne’s that are far from basic. Eau de Nomade’s Sicilian lemon, blood orange and cardamom are beautifully balanced and what you get is a zesty, slightly sweet and tantalizingly warm scent that’s far from your average summer cologne.

Pit Approved

Deodorant

Have you ever come home, opened the refrigerator and stared into it like something would miraculously jump out at you that didn’t before? That’s the same thing that often happens when I troll the aisles of chain drug stores looking for deodorant. Don’t get me wrong, they aren’t all bad but sometimes I look hard for something else; anything other than what’s already there but somehow I leave without buying anything.  As a result, I didn’t wear any deodorant for a long time. I don’t perspire a lot but the last time I left my pits bare, it was in the fall/winter so I could get away with it. With spring and summer on the horizon and perspiration due to increase, something had to change – enter Baxter of California’s Deodorant.

The first time I smelled Deodorant, I thought I forgot to take a protective layer or something off the roll on. The scent isn’t as loud as most men’s deodorants can be. It’s Citrus & Herbal-Musk scent is subtly present and it won’t compete with your fragrance choice of the day. The citrus notes are in the background giving the scent a slight fresh lift but its earthiness is what will rope you in. It’s all man without the usual “guy” scent. For those with sensitive noses, I think you’ll find this wearable. For those with sensitive pits, this is formulated with you in mind. And it’s aluminum and alcohol free to boot.

Good Read..Scents of Spring

With Daylight Savings going into effect this weekend, we’re all looking forward to spring. Those extra moments of sunlight will be celebrated with outdoor cocktails, breezy strolls and flirty innuendos. As a precursor to the season of relief, LifeStyle Mirror produced a piece about the Scents of Spring. They asked me to be a part and to my surprise, I’m in the midst of great company. My thoughts are alongside Chad Murawczyk of Min New York, David Moltz of DS & Durga, Francis Kurkdjian, Christopher Cervasel of Atelier Cologne and Carlos Huber of Arquiste. Check it out when you have a moment.

Forget about the hour of sleep you lost and look forward to spring baby…it’s right around the corner.
