With the number of subscription services and beauty packages available for women, it was only a matter of time before the men began to feel left out.  To be honest, there is definitely a side eye situation going on at my house from my husband with all the regular deliveries I receive.  So, when I got my hands on this new Glossybox for men, I couldn’t wait to bring it home and give it to him.  He was thrilled, and he didn’t even know the contents!  Lucky for him, the items in this box were amazing and could allow him to indulge his metrosexual side with some pampering and grooming.

Glossybox for men

From shampoo to eye cream to hair clay and moisturizer, this box gives men a little bit of everything to try that they probably never even knew they needed!

Redken Firm Grasp Texturizing Hair Clay + Redken Clean Brew Shampoo

The Redken Firm Grasp texturizing hair clay was an immediate favorite in my house – since my husband loves a good hair product.  The hold was strong without being tacky or greasy looking and kept his style all day long.  The Redken clean brew shampoo seemed like it would also be a home run since it is formulated with beer ingredients, such as malt and brewer’s yeast!  It’s great for removing any build up or grit in the hair – keeping it clean and healthy.

Bulgari MAN cologne

The Bulgari MAN cologne is a deep woody oriental scent that has an elegant and sophisticated scent – and men often need some help deciding on a fragrance, so this is a great option to get them to try something new.

NUXE MEN Eye Cream

Speaking of help, eye cream is something men need though they may not even realize it.  The NUXE MEN eye cream is great for helping to reduce puffiness and address any signs of aging.

Sisley for Men Face Moisturizer

The eye area is not the only part of the face that needs care however, and the Sisley for men face moisturizer is a great way to get them started on a regular regimen but one that won’t overwhelm them.

Zirh Pre-shave Oil

Finally, the Zirh Pre-shave oil is the product they will probably get the most use out of and if they have never shaved with an oil before, it may just change them forever. Designed to help ease shaving, it reduce any signs of irritation or razor burn.

It’s only a start, but a box like this could get the man in your life on the road to better grooming habits.  And if they are already well-groomed and immersed in a good skincare regimen, then this is a great way to give them the chance to try something new and possibly add to the good habits.

The men’s glossybox is available on the glossybox website for $40.

Backstage Beauty Focus:  Redken Hair Care

The Rundown on the look:  “Sleek with an edge” was how Redken Key Hair Stylist, Staci Child, described the look for the men at the Richard Wu Spring 2013 fashion show.  Stylists brushed the hair to the side and then “tweaked out the edges for an almost cartoonish look”, Child described, using Redken Rough Paste and Wax Blast to give the hair hold and texture.  I felt the look was a welcome change and fresh look for men who want to change up their look but don’t want to spend time “styling” their hair.  This look would also work for ladies with short hair. Here are the finished looks:













During Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week I had the opportunity to go backstage and observe hair and makeup at many shows. The cartwheeling Betsey Johnson was by far one of the most charged backstage environments of Fashion Week S/S 2010! This woman’s energy level is second to none. How does she do it?

Here are exclusive backstage shots of the hair and makeup prep. And if you look closely, you’ll even see a few blurry pics (gotta get a better camera) of the stealth Ms Betsey Johnson.
