Oh hey! Since you’re here, we want to talk to you about male grooming. Surprising, right? We’re pretty laser focused on this concept, but that’s why we notice that some disconnects have been forming amongst the male population. A lot of guys are doing a better job taking care of their balls, and we couldn’t be prouder.

Oh hey! Since you’re here, we want to talk to you about male grooming. Surprising, right? We’re pretty laser focused on this concept, but that’s why we notice that some disconnects have been forming amongst the male population. A lot of guys are doing a better job taking care of their balls, and we couldn’t be prouder.

At the same time, we’ve noticed a lot of guys slipping in other areas. Here’s an example. Do you have a specialized facial scrub? If not, you need to keep reading. It seems that guys who take up male grooming misunderstand a core premise. They wonder, “Can you use MANSCAPED™ on your face?” This practice is about much, much more than your balls. You have to see the big picture or else you’ll just be another gross guy with a surprisingly well-manicured lawn.

Does Grooming Include Your Face?

In a word, yes. Grooming definitely includes your face. In our opinion, men’s grooming includes everything you do to take care of your body — especially when it involves skin and hair care. So, naturally, your face is involved in that, and the lessons of grooming can help you take better care of it.

We always harp on exfoliating after grooming your body. Do you think that excludes beard care? It doesn’t. After you shave your beard, you should moisturize and exfoliate, with an exception. If you shave every day, only exfoliate once a week, but you should still moisturize every time.

We want to point out that this was always our philosophy. Some of our products were always meant to be used on the face. We make a safety razor. It’s straight up designed from years of studying face razors. It would be weird if you didn’t shave your beard with it, but we’re going to talk about that in more detail a little later. You don’t want to shave your balls and face with the same razor. It gets weird.

Can You Use MANSCAPED™ on Your Face?

The answer to this is a little bit of yes and no. There are products that can and should be used on your face. Other of our products are not designed for your face. They won’t outright harm you, but using them incorrectly is less than ideal.

Here’s an example. MANSCAPED does not currently have a face wash. If used correctly, none of our products should be harmful if used on your face, but none of them are designed to replace a proper face wash. So, if you try to use ball deodorant as a replacement for acne cream, you aren’t going to get wonderful results. That’s what we really mean here, and it makes even more sense if we break it down for each product.

What MANSCAPED™ products Can I Use on My Face?

Let’s start with the disclaimer-ish talk. None of our products are outright harmful to your face, but used incorrectly, they can be. Please don’t put our cleanser in your eye. It will probably sting or burn. You get the idea. When used correctly, some of our products really shouldn’t be on your face anyway, so let’s go through it.

Crop Cleanser™ Hair and Body Wash

This is our hair and body cleanser. You can use it on your face and to shampoo your hair. We made this for showering, and you should wash your face in the shower along with the rest of your body. If you wash your hair with Crop Cleanser™ hair and body wash, it’s going to run down your face anyway. This is all well within design.

Here’s the thing. Your face needs a little more care than most of your skin, so you should have an out-of-shower face wash and moisturizer that you also use. Crop Cleanser hair and body wash does not replace these functions. It cleans your face in the shower. It even moisturizes a tad, but it’s not a total face solution.

The Plow 2.0 Safety Razor

The Plow™ 2.0 is a safety razor. Using a safety razor is pretty much the same story anywhere you want to shave. That’s by design, so you can (and should) definitely make The Plow razor your primary facial razor.

There is a catch, though. Cross-contamination is a thing, and it creates real problems. If you use the same razor on your face and your ass, you’re going to have problems. So, you need to do a few things. First, never ever for any reason ever use the same blade on different parts of your body. Second, sanitize your razor (rubbing alcohol is great for this) before you switch body parts. Better yet, have a dedicated razor for your face and a different tool entirely for your body. Keep The Plow 2.0 razor just for your face. That makes things easy.

There’s a second catch, and that’s using MANSCAPED when you have acne on your face. It can be done, but you want to go through that guide in order to do it safely and correctly.

The Lawn Mower® 3.0 Trimmer

The Lawn Mower® trimmer is going to be a lot like The Plow razor. The trimmer can absolutely handle your beard safely. It’s a trimmer. It cuts hair. Your beard is not an exception.

But, all of the caveats still exist. You don’t want to use the same blade on your crotch and your face. That’s a serious problem that can cause very bad infections. Even in lighter scenarios, you can end up with athlete’s foot on your face, and you don’t want that.

It’s a little harder to justify having multiple trimmers, and we get that. This is why The Lawn Mower 3.0 trimmer has a detachable blade head. Use different blade heads for your face and body and you’ll be fine. They swap very easily, and they come in packs, so it’s not a big deal.

Still, it’s good to sanitize your blade heads between uses, and rubbing alcohol is still a great tool for that job.

Upcoming Products

We’re always innovating and releasing new stuff. Now is not the time for formal announcements, but we will have new products that are safe for your face. After all, we’re the ones explaining that male grooming includes your face. We’re backing up that claim, so be on the lookout for our next big announcement.

What MANSCAPED™ Products Should I Avoid Using on My Face?

Once more with feeling . . . the products should not be harmful to your face; they’re just not designed for that use. So, as a recommendation, don’t put them on your face. It’s pretty easy.

Crop Preserver® Ball Deodorant

This is our ball deodorant. That is a specific sentence. It is not a face deodorant. That doesn’t even exist. It’s definitely not a facial moisturizer. It’s ball deodorant. It goes on your balls. We’re not even fans of using it on the pits when you forgot to go shopping.

The formula for Crop Preserver® ball deodorant is engineered for the moisture and microbial conditions of your crotch. It simply won’t work the same way on other parts of your body. If you really want that Crop Preserver deodorant scent on the rest of your body, we make a cologne. It uses the same signature scent, so please use that instead.

Crop Reviver® Ball Toner

Crop Reviver® is a ball toner. Again, that sentence is being specific. It’s designed to promote healthy moisture levels and pH control for your groin area. Those conditions are unique for your body, so the formula of Crop Reviver toner is not tweaked correctly for the rest of you. Keep it in your pants.

MANSCAPED™ Boxers

Our boxers are not an appropriate substitute for a face mask. We get it. You’re in the middle of a pandemic. You forget your mask. You get a little desperate. Our boxers won’t hurt your face, but they are not designed for this. You have to use the right tools for the job at hand.

If you find yourself in a laundry detergent ad and can’t refrain from putting your boxers in your face, we won’t judge. But, we made these things for your lower body.

Now You Can Decide Which MANSCAPED™ Products You Want to Use On Your Face

That about covers it. You now know if you can use MANSCAPED on your face. Men’s grooming is absolutely about your face as much as it is about what you have below the waist. You have to take care of your whole body, and we’re trying to help with all of it. Keep in mind that lessons that apply to your face often apply to the rest of you and vice versa. As always, be sure to check back in regularly. We’re always releasing new products and providing new insights into everything you need to know about grooming.

How to wear your watch correctly

Published

on

As much as you won’t like hearing this, you’re probably wearing your watch wrong.

It’s not your fault; you may have never been taught how to wear a watch properly. After all, there is more than one way to wear a watch.

But how do you know which way is the right way?

Don’t worry, gents; as always, I’ve got you covered. I’m here with the best way to wear your favorite timepiece properly and look as stylish as ever.

In today’s article, I’ll be covering:

  1. Origins Of The Wrist Watch
  2. What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?
  3. Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?
  4. The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

#1 Origins Of The Wrist Watch

old watches

When it comes to wearing a watch correctly, it’s important to note why the wristwatch came about in the first place.

Dating back to the 1800s, the first watches modified to be worn on the wrist were primarily worn by women as accessories. One of the earliest was created by Patek Philippe as a fashion accessory.

At the start of the 20th century, watchmakers became intrigued about using a wrist-worn timepiece for men in the military. They believed it would help them tell time quickly while on the battlefield.

Watchmakers started modifying pocket watches to fit on a bracelet worn on the wrist. Men would not wear the first iteration of the modern wristwatch until well into the 20th century.

Then developed as a ‘trench watch’ for military use, the earliest wrist watches offered something the pocket watch didn’t have – convenience.

After the wristwatch became less of a fashion accessory and more of a functional tool, watchmakers would spend the next century modifying them into the modern wristwatches we enjoy today.

#2 What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?

The age-old question: what wrist to wear a watch on? The answer – it depends.

The reason it depends is that since the creation of the wristwatch, men have mostly worn their watch on their non-dominant wrist. And since most people are right-handed, you would wear your watch on your left wrist.

But this isn’t always the correct answer. You may want to wear your watch on the right wrist if you are left-handed. But you may also want to wear it on your dominant hand.

So how do you know for sure?

The most significant benefit of wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is that you can quickly put the watch on and navigate the dial more efficiently than with your non-dominant hand.

Wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is less likely to damage the watch as you tend to do more with your dominant hand. If you were to wear it on your dominant hand, you’re more likely to scratch or ding the watch than on your non-dominant hand.

So the rule of thumb here is to wear your watch on your non-dominant hand for the best way to navigate and protect your watch.

#3 Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?

watch facing inside

The next question is, why would a man wear his watch facing inward on his wrist instead of outward?

This trend is seen primarily in individuals who need to check their watch frequently and in the most efficient way possible. Among the many reasons you should wear a watch, one of the most common is to support you in your profession.

You will see men in the military do this, as it’s easier and prevents sun glare better than when it’s on the outside of the wrist. It also offers faster convenience to other tools on the watch in addition to the time.

Another reason you may want to wear your watch facing inward is that it can help protect your watch from scratches and dings. Again, this is just a preference.

But you’re a stylish guy looking for the best way to wear his watch. What should you do?

The answer here is to wear it facing outward, as that is the most common way to wear a wristwatch. It shows off your timepiece that you love while also still being functional.

Unless you’re in a profession where you need to check your watch quickly while managing other tasks, the best way is to have your watch facing outward. After all, you probably didn’t spend money on that beautiful timepiece to hide its character.

#4 The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

Now it’s time to find out exactly how to wear a watch in the most stylish way a guy can.

Assuming you’ve selected the right size watch for your wrist, the first thing you want to do is figure out if you’ll be wearing your watch on your right or left wrist.

As mentioned above, traditionally, the watch is worn on your non-dominant wrist. So if you’re right-handed, this means wearing your watch on your left wrist. For left-handed guys, this means your right wrist.

After you figure that out, it’s quite easy. The first thing you want to do is locate your wrist bone.

You want to wear your watch face up just above your wrist bone. If done correctly, your watch should slightly peek out from under the cuffs of your shirt when wearing long sleeves.

Next, you want to tighten the strap so it’s loose enough to be comfortable. You don’t want it so loose it can spin freely around your wrist. You also don’t want it too tight, or it will feel uncomfortable, especially when you bend your wrist.

After doing this correctly, you’ll be wearing a watch in the most stylish way possible.

There you have it, gents.

Now you no longer have to worry about wearing your watch incorrectly.

There is more than one way to wear a watch, so find what’s most comfortable for you personally, and rock your favorite timepiece accordingly.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe Preparation (Buy Now and Get $$$)

Published

on

We’ve all been there – fall comes around, and you open your closet only to find you have nothing but polos and shorts.

So what’s a stylish guy to do? Pay a premium to build an entire fall wardrobe last minute? Sure, if you’re loaded. But not every guy is that lucky!

Don’t worry; as ever, I’ve got you covered. In today’s article, I’ll show you how to get the best bang for your buck when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

We’ll be covering:

  1. What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?
  2. How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?
  3. Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?
  4. What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

#1 What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?

man in closet

One of the most common headaches guys run into in their closet is having too many clothing options to choose from but not enough of the right options.

While more options aren’t bad, they can be overwhelming, especially when you rarely wear most items. This is where building a capsule wardrobe comes into play.

A capsule wardrobe is a limited selection of clothing items that complement each other. This means you can buy a smaller selection of items and create a larger number of outfits.

This is crucial to understand because most guys don’t have an unlimited budget for buying clothes. A capsule wardrobe allows you to purchase and use items frequently with little redundancy.

But where do you start in building your fall capsule wardrobe?

#2 How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?

fall clothing items

After you have put together the perfect capsule wardrobe, you can start to add a few fall-specific items. This is done by adding a few staple pieces that complement what you already have.

For most, fall offers mild temperatures mixed with slightly warmer temperatures.

This means that layering will be of the utmost importance because you may leave the house needing a jacket, but it might be warm enough by midday to sport only the t-shirt underneath.

Start with the basics when building your fall capsule wardrobe and add pieces accordingly.

Keep It Simple

Fall is primetime for layering, so you only need a few outer layers and should focus more on the innermost layers.

You want to make sure that interchangeability is at the top of your list when it comes to your wardrobe. Everything should complement each other for ease of use.

With that said, having a few staples and adding additional items as you change seasons is essential.

For this reason, ensure you have the following items in your fall capsule wardrobe:

  • A dark three-piece suit 
  • A light-colored tweed blazer
  • A leather bomber or biker jacket
  • An overcoat (dark or light)
  • A formal button-up shirt (white)
  • 2 casual button-up shirts (flannel or chambray, you choose)
  • 2 sweaters (1 shawl, 1 crew neck)
  • 2 t-shirts (1 white, 1 black,)
  • 2 pairs of Jeans (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 pairs of slacks/chinos (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 belts (1 black, 1 brown)
  • 1 pair of black dress shoes
  • 1 pair of brown oxfords (leather or suede, you decide)
  • 1 pair of sneakers (plain white or brown)
  • 1 pair of military boots (black or brown)

When it comes to accessories like watches, scarves, or gloves, you can use what you have as most men won’t need all of them, so I won’t count them in.

#3 Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?

As it is the middle of summer, fall will be approaching quickly.

Now is a great time to snag up some of last year’s sale items at department stores as they usually have sales on previous season items. By now, most men aren’t thinking about what to wear in the fall.

While you still might be able to find good deals on last year’s fall items, it’s usually the most optimal time to purchase these items after the season has ended. This is when retailers try hard to clear space and make room for the next season’s clothing.

When they do this, it is a great time to get excellent deals on items that have just gone out of season.

Another great option to buy men’s clothing is online at your favorite retailers, as they will often have sales and discounts on items they have in their online inventory but are not yet in prime season.

The most expensive items in your fall capsule wardrobe are the ones you want to focus on, as you can often save a significant amount of money out of season for them.

These big ticket items include:

  • Your dark three-piece suit and blazer
  • Overcoats and jackets
  • Dress shoes and sneakers
  • Boots

These items will be some of the most expensive items and can be found discounted out of season. Put these at the forefront of your fall capsule wardrobe search.

#4 What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

man shopping for clothes

You want to adhere to a few staples when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

Since fall weather can vary, layering will be essential. These few items are crucial as mainstays that can be layered with other items within your wardrobe.

For example, if you experience a rather chilly day in fall and need to wear a suit, an overcoat is essential as that outermost layer because you can simply remove it when you no longer need it.

When it comes to the concept of layering within your fall capsule wardrobe, you want to make sure you nail these following items.

Overcoats

man wearing overcoat

Having a good overcoat to complement your fall capsule wardrobe is crucial.

The overcoat acts as the outermost layer and will be removed whenever you go indoors. This makes for a great option as you can wear it with anything as it offers excellent versatility.

When searching for the perfect overcoat, it’s essential to know your size as they usually come in sizes of suit jackets, not regular sizing. After you’ve nailed the size, focus on color.

Dark-colored overcoats tend to be the most versatile. However, a light camel color can work as well. Stay away from patterns with overcoats as the goal is to be as versatile as possible.

Leather Jackets

leather jackets

A good leather jacket goes a long way. You can choose a leather biker jacket or a leather bomber; it’s your call.

Biker jackets can be slightly harder to pull off as most of the time, they will have a larger and more aggressive collar, but they still look great.

A leather bomber jacket is an excellent option because it looks great on all body types and often has more options than biker jackets.

For color, opt for black or dark brown, as that gives you the most versatility with other items in your fall capsule wardrobe.

Sweaters

man wearing sweater

Sweaters are to fall, what t-shirts are for summer. This means they are a critical piece as they are season specific and offer great versatility when it comes to layering.

So how do you find the perfect sweater?

You want options, so have a couple of different collar choices to give yourself the most bang for your buck.

Having a shawl neck sweater and a crew neck sweater ensures you have all your bases covered.

Make sure you choose neutral tones such as greys, creams, and tans for color. This ensures maximum versatility with other items within your wardrobe and gives you the most options.

That’s it, gents.

The Best Zara Fragrances

Published

on

We all know of Zara and I’m pretty sure the majority of us own at least one piece from them, but I’m not here to talk about their reasonably priced clothing, I’m here for their fragrance.

Not quite a hidden gem but I don’t feel that they vast range and high quality fragrance that they create is given enough air time, I’m about to change that. The fragrance game is massive at the moment, everyone from the big fashion houses all the way to footballers have a scent on the market and they all carry a hefty price tag, with some of the bigger hitters asking in excess of

£100 for 50ml.

Zara clearly understand the need for a great fragrance but also appreciate not everything has to be overly expensive. I’ve been lucky enough to sample my fair share over the years and wanted to share with you what I feel are some of their strongest.

Tobacco Collective 100ml – £16.99

This is one of my absolute favourites, it works perfectly as an everyday scent. The initial smell is strong and masculine but with undertones of vanilla bourbon help to soften it slightly.

4Qbk tFcSNbWj04S58 QXQsAx1NOGJ2EW5BgfYj4Ey67ulm5nUzJMLNq8HMNdkps3FThHVxZUbG2kK7VkQQIumuQtVN2 ww56QbpYBb3oo8vyL0js Gz4QeX1WHYq6r 2 t sNHgJEDHbdwuZg

For Him 100ml – £22.99

My current daily spray, its warm, modern and intense. It just so happens to be the perfect blend of three of my favourite scents, bergamot, cardamom and sandalwood. It’s strong yet light, never over powering and leaves a wonderful trail.

Florence 100ml – £16.24

Summer calls for a fresh fragrance and I cannot recommend this highly enough, its light, fresh and citrus scent is perfectly for those warmer days. Notes of black pepper, strawberry and guaiac wood allow this scent to sit gently on the skin with offending the noses of those around you.
