Once a week, Birchbox’s resident Yoga and men’s product expert, Eric, will gives us girls some insight into his world in You’ve Got Male. Whether he’s giving his expertise on skincare (boys need advice, too!) or highlighting his new favorite grooming trend, this guy has got taste—so we’re lucky he’s on staff and willing to share.
I’ve been thinking a lot recently about where to draw the line with spending on grooming products. I’m sure there are some people out there who would say that you can’t put a price on beauty. There are also those who are adamant that less expensive drugstore products work just fine. My theory is this: both are right.
When deciding where to spend your money when it comes to beauty and grooming, it’s important to discern the major concerns from the less crucial ones. For example, it’s really important to me to use an a skincare product that is fast and easy and gives me immediate results in the form of a smooth, luminous complexion. Enter Sunday Riley’s Juno Transformative Lipid Serum. This all-natural dry oil blend literally delivers everything in one step: it moisturizes, boosts elasticity, delivers antioxidant benefits, and gives me a subtle healthy glow. Even with the $125 price tag, it was still a no-brainer. I knew this was my splurge.
While I spend on my skin, there are other parts of my routine where I save. For instance, since I have short hair, I don’t need to condition very often. Most of the time, I just shampoo and go so the average drugstore conditioner totally fulfills my needs.
To decide where to spend, here’s my advice: make a list of all your beauty concerns. One you have everything down on paper, go back and order them from most to least important. This will give you a great roadmap for where to spend your hard earned cash and you won’t end up overspending on something that isn’t really worth it to you.
