Frugal Snob: ManCave Natural Grooming Products

My dad is the biggest Beauty Man Snob! Pretty much every guy I know rolls his eyes when he sees my beauty routine…all I hear is what a waste of money lotions and creams are…”I don’t believe in that stuff…” blah blah blah.

Tom Ford Launches Beard Oil and Comb

Tom Ford Beard Oil and Comb

Beards are having a huge moment right now (I can’t even count the number of articles like this one I’ve read in the last few weeks and a friend of mine, Spencer Chalk-Levy, has even come out with a book, based off his artwork, called Boys With Beards!).

Molton Brown Launches Men’s Sport Collection

Molton Brown launched their Men’s Sport Collection this month and I was able to preview one of their products a few weeks ago. I opted to try their Anti-Perspirant Sportstick ($22) – the collection also includes 4-in-1 Sportwash ($24) and Body-warming Sportsbalm ($26) – because I stopped using women’s deodorant more or less completely a […]

Prada Luna Rossa

I was sent a sample of Luna Rossa ($62-102), the new Eau de Toilette from Prada (named after the brand’s America’s Cup Challenge team), and before I could even smell it my dad spotted it, opened it, and staked his claim to it! That’s what I get for stopping by my parents place for dinner […]

Braun Shavers for Holiday 2012: He’ll Thank You for 7 Years

For the holidays, guys just want sensible gifts that’ll make their lives easier. A smooth shave is high on his list, so I asked my hubby to test this shaver out. Being a Man Snob, he refused at first, until he saw it was a Braun Series 7. This is the company’s best and most […]

Assassin by Billy Jealousy: The Dry Assassin

For me, a moisturizer is the most important thing between my face and New York City air. My skin drives my crazy, especially in the beginning of fall, when it can’t decide between perspiration and sheer dryness. Recently, I was sent a killer project: a jar of a Billy Jealousy moisturizer called Assassin, and oh, […]

Summer Hair for the Man Snob: A Close Call

After growing out my hair for the past year or so, I decided it was time to tame this bush growing on top of my head. Humidity and my hair are not friends, and I know it was time to clean up. After a strong recommendation by a friend to trust the artists at John […]
