I was recently invited to visit one of my favorite mens skin care brands Lab Series during New York Mens Day at New York Fashion Week Mens. For the third season, LAB SERIES is the official grooming sponsor for New York Men’s Day, a full-day event where twelve designers show simultaneous presentations across two time-slots during NYFWM. LAB SERIES Grooming Director Jodie Boland offered grooming services to designers David Hart and Descendent of Thieves. Models and influencers mingled and played with LAB SERIES products before presentations started. I was so impressed with how welcoming and kind everybody in the LAB SERIES lounge was, we all share a passion for fashion and grooming and LAB SERIES did a terrific job in creating an inspiring and positive environment that reflected that passion.
At NYMD LAB SERIES launched their new 3-in-1 shave & beard oil with the products ambassadors Justin Livingston and Levi Stocke. This oil is ideal for men who shave or need to condition their beards and looking for a product that can deliver an all in one solution for your beard needs. I got the chance to play with the 3-in-1 shave & beard and oil and fell in love with the consistency and Sea Buckthorn Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil blend. The Lab Series 3-in-1 shave & beard oil won’t be released in stores till later this year but you can buy it during Lab Series pre-sale event now!
Stocking stuffers for guys can be a bit of a panic, especially if you don’t know what the different guys in your life like. I’m going to walk you through some of my favorite grooming products and who they are a good pick for!
Griff’s Razor Glide Shave Cream comes from California based 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons. This Luxurious shaving cream that I’ve recently fallen for is a thick cream that glides onto the skin with a calming scent and hydration that prepares the skin for a close shave. The chilling mint cools, while the rosemary supports healthy collagen development and keeps damaging free-radicals at bay. Grab it online HERE or pick this one up at a Local 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons, or Griff’s Shave Bar!
With so many razors on the market how do you pick a quality one that won’t break the bank. I love the Harry’s brand razors because they give a close shave that is comfortable. This Harry’s razor kit also includes a 5 blade cartridges that will keep him stocked up for a while. Find this Harry’s razor kit at Target for under $15!
For skincare as a stocking stuffer a lip balm is always nice but splurging for something he would never buy himself that he will benefit from all year long is a much more helpful investment. The Kiehls Age Defender line is a mens anti aging range featuring one of my favorite serums “The Power Serum”
Stocking filler items like this “The Barber Book” and Conair wooden comb are unique items that will inspire and maintain his next look. I love the barber book because it features a lot of great, modern hair styles for men but it also works well as a chic coffee table book for his place!
Cologne can be a tricky gift to give, especially with so many new scents coming out around the holidays. A staple fragrance in my winter fragrance wardrobe is Gentleman Only By Givenchy. This woody, spicy, oriental scent has notes of sophisticated bergamot, a warm trio of incandescent spices and is topped with sensual vanilla and sandalwood. I love it because its spicy and sexy yet sweet and lovable. Perfect for date night.
