Stop The Water While Using Me!
of grooming products doing good things. Good things like not testing on animals, using organic ingredients and packaging in biodegradable containers. The German company’s mission is clear and the packaging provides a constant reminder to “Stop the Water While Using Me!”. With all natural shampoo, soap, shower gel, and body lotion, they’re a great (and rather clever) grooming alternative.

This reminds me..
so much of my pops. He’s an old school guy and still uses his shave kit. When I asked him why he prefers the mug & brush he told me “it’s gentler on your face and gives you a smoother shave. The drawbacks are it’s cumbersome for traveling, and a little more time consuming.” There happens to be many more modern options these days, and New York Shaving Company, The Art of Shaving and Etsy are just three (of the many) great resources for finding these classic grooming tools.

Baxter of California
for guys can get overwhelming. I may be a little late to the game on this one, but the products from Baxter of California seem pretty great. They’re affordable and the assortment is pretty impressive. They’ve got all the skincare basics covered, but some extras I’m also digging are this pocket comb and candle. I’m happy to see that you can get some free samples (if you cover the minimal cost of shipping) to test out the products. I always find it to be such a commitment when you have to buy something you just aren’t sure you’ll LOVE! Also if this is new territory, you can find fabulous grooming wisdom on the Baxter of California site. No fuss, guys grooming essentials at its best.
