Once a week, Birchbox’s resident yoga and men’s product expert, Eric, will give 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.
Shortly after starting at Birchbox, I had the pleasure of visiting the Korres offices in downtown Manhattan. I was given a full rundown of the products (and even received a few gift items!) during my visit to the showroom. I took the products home and began incorporating them into my routine. Never before has a brand so completely transported me—all of my senses immediately loved this line. I felt like I was on the shores of Greece wading in the surf while luxuriating in the scent of the fig trees. (And I’ve never even been to Greece!) Best of all, this line is made from all-natural ingredients that offer great efficacy. Oh, and all products are also environmentally conscious, a major plus. Below, two of my absolute must-haves.
Guava Body Butter: This is the best body butter I’ve ever used. The texture is rich enough to moisturize in the cold weather, but still feels light and glides on easily. The guava scent is tropical and sweet while not being overbearing or overtly feminine. I use it on my elbows and hands and my skin feels smooth and nourished all day.
Cedar Shower Gel: This shower gel is extremely luxurious and foams like a dream. Even a quarter-sized amount is enough for my entire body—and I’m 6’1”! The scent is woodsy, but still fresh and masculine without being musky or dull. And, best of all, the moisturizing effects of this shower gel are super long-lasting.
