The MAN-icure

Even you guys need to be pampered

Yeah I know, you’re asking why did a chick make a men’s beauty lens right? Well because on occasion I do spy & pick up one of you guys magazines (usually only if a favorite actor is on the cover or there’s an interview with one inside) but there are some suggestions and I will keep adding as you tell me your tips & tricks for others. (Really this is a 2 way street, I do need some hep from you gentlemen out there!) I also have some product suggestions of my own, at least those I have heard of and one in which I LOVE… I use it as an air freshener on occasion! Cool Water Cologne~

If you have tips for grooming, certain colognes, products etc? Please leave them in the Guestbook & comments section or you can contact me directly if you click my picture in the upper right hand corner of the page.

Wardrobe

Now I’ve seen some Hot guys with some serious well… Let’s just say one shouldn’t have been wearing Flop Flops in the mall, at least not with what he was wearing.  That I CAN forgive if you live in California or its a hot day here in NY. What I cannot forgive is the Skinny jeans. They look stupid on you no matter HOW skinny you are.

A too tiny belt or too big is not good either. A too thin belt just doesn’t work, but the normal 1 1/2 men’s belt  is just right, but unless you are a cowboy/living in Texas… You will be ticketed by the fashion police.

Jewelry, that depends on what it is especially with bracelets (arm rings) there are some things that look more masculine than others, and it’s best for you to limit it to one. Unless you wear something leather, then one leather piece and one Metal

 

10 Items In A Man’s Wardrobe That Irritate Women

 

COLOGNE

*try medium to light scents, you don’t want your dates (or wife) to be choking on that overly musky scent.

*if it’s a spray spritz no more than 3x. Even if its a light scent you don’t need to smell like you took a bath in it.

if it’s not then when you put it in your hands rub together (being most Perfumes & Colognes are full of alcohol this will evaporate some of it for a longer lasting scent) Spread the scent a bit on your neck, chest & arms.

*Did you buy or win a cute plush animal for your date, girlfriend or wife? Put some of your cologne on it so it will make them think of you every-time they smell it.

want a cool calming scent to wear? Try Cool Water

Etiquette

Don’t make that atrocious Hack-a-lung noise. Its gross leave that for the bathroom.

“A guy’s biggest style mistake is definitely trying to look too cool. as long as You’ve got a good pair of jeans, a good pair of boots and a few good shirts, You’re fine”  -Luke Evans

Hair

My dad uses the Micro touch Max hair remover, I guess to trim his sideburns and such inbetween hair cuts.

I’ve included the Remington hair cutter as Remington has been a trusted name for decades

Micro Touch Max Hair Remover- colors may vary

Body bits

The dove I included because its a 2 in one Body & face wash.

The Axe detailer is for washing those tough parts as well as any others

Lubriderm I chose because its for body face & an after shave type lotion. I personally use the regular Lubriderm oat Extract version which I also double (on occasion) as a facial moisturizer as it is Non-cominogenic so it will not clog your pores!

and there’s of course the Axe body wash or try the Lush line for men

My dad has used this brand since I was little, and honestly I use it for my legs. I don’t know why but I jsut don’t like the women’s shaving creams & gels as much as this.
