Even you guys need to be pampered

Yeah I know, you're asking why did a chick make a men's beauty page 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). 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 freshner 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.

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 it's 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 buyor win a cute plush animal for your date, girlfriend or wife? Put some of your cologne on it it will make them think of you every time they smell it.

want a cool calming scent to wear? Try Cool Water

(also see Beauty Balm's Shower section)

Etiquette

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

OTHER

If you can find a copy of Men's Health September 2011 (w/ Sam Worthington on the cover) there's a lot of help in there.

Some of the sections in the 'Bauty Balm' (Big Link below) do apply to you guys as well, so read through those too. You can also check the product listing below for suggested items, I'd love for you guys out there to send me feedback as well as other products, tips tricks & suggestions.

The Beauty Balm and it's pages are moving!

They will now have their own blog (premanently posted to the pages section of http://zisbeautybalm.wordpress.com/the Man-icure . If you'd like to be a contributor you may contact me with your email address. That means the beauty pages will only be on Hubpages for a limited time until I can get it all situated. I hope you will follow me over there

Men's Grooming - hair style tips & tricks (especially for the Thick hair)

Fashion

Of course you guys have some fashion

to start out.... here's the The Man Bag

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


find all the items suggested HERE via amazon.com Widgets

Thank you for your visit - have you any tips? Please let us know

      @SimonJay: Dove is not thick enough for winter skin and certainly does not moisturize long enough. Lubriderm is better plus won't clog pores and even better is the NIVEA it's nice and thick so will moisturize longer. My faves thoug are from a place called Lush (checkout The-lush-life here on squidoo) they also have a men's line if you check out the website as well

      Cool Water Cologne is my 2nd favorite to use, dove can be great for dry skin during the winter period.
