Coolness Overload at Capsule: You’ve Got Male

birchboxman:

Some guys use whatever soap is in the shower. Others carefully consider the field and select the best option. Eric, our resident grooming god, falls in the latter camp. Once a week, he’ll be sharing his product findings and lifestyle tips.

This week, I had the incredible opportunity to visit the Capsule trade show in Las Vegas. This uber cool show has a collection of Men’s grooming, lifestyle, and apparel brands and is like the holy grail for someone like me who’s always searching for the newest and most fabulous thing.

Save Your Skin, Save Your Job: You’ve Got Male

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.

So, it seems that I haven’t been wasting my breath (or time spent typing away) writing this blog for the past nine months. According to the New York Times, sales of prestige skincare products for men grew 5% in 2010 and an additional 12% in 2011. Guys really are spending more on skincare despite high unemployment rates and a bad economy. Experts are saying that men are figuring out that looking younger and healthier can help them get — or keep — a job. It’s no longer a vanity issue, but more about looking professional.

Celeste Hilling, the founder of Skin Authority says: “Men today say they feel they have to look better to be competitive.”

It also seems that guys value quick efficacy with products, which is no surprise considering the patience level of most men I know. Bottom line is this: guys need to listen up and start paying attention (not to mention, shelling out some cash) when it comes to skincare. Good thing I’m here to help!

One of Eric’s fave skincare lines? Clark’s Botanicals!

Stylist Dennis Joseph and Eric

I’m always game to try fun things with my hair. As my mom always says, “your hair will grow back experiment with it!” So it was a no-brainer when I was invited to Ricky’s NYC for a BaByliss Pro hair tattooing event. My previous exposure to the technique was very limited and I was excited to learn more (and get my first hair tattoo!).

Talika Products Are My New Obsession: You’ve Got Male

For those of you who thought that products to help grow eyelashes are all made from ingredients that were discovered within the last decade, well then you are wrong. (Just to clarify, I was one of those people too.) In 1948, a French doctor named Danielle Roches developed a plant-based healing substance to treat burn victims and, much to her surprise, the treatment made her patients’ eyelashes grow back at warp speed. Thus was born Talika, an incredible French line of eyecare products that I recently just discovered.

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.
