We don't like to admit it, but most of us don't take care of our teeth like we should. Many of us forget to brush twice a day, most of us don't brush for the full two minutes and we all let our toothbrushes get frayed and ineffective. The Quip Electric Toothbrush and oral care service is out to change this. To encourage regular brushing, Quip features a sleek aluminum handle and a convenient wall mount that doubles as a travel cover. A built in smart electric vibration motor guides brushing for a full two minutes and, to ensure you actually replace your brush on time, you'll get a new head and toothpaste refill through the mail every three months from just $5 a pop.
No matter what brand or kind of razor you use, it uses the same metal blades as every other one on the market. Except for the Skarp Laser Razor, that is. This revolutionary grooming product uses a laser that targets a specific chromophore in hair that allows it to cut it cleanly, emitting light only when contact is detected. As a result, it never needs a blade replacement, and doesn't even require any water — although you can still use it in the shower if you want. Powered by a single AAA battery, it's available in aluminum with a silver or black finish.
Nothing is so good that it can't be made better. That's why subscription service Birchbox Man is aiming to upgrade your routine with October's "Peak Performance" box, featuring gear and grooming essentials that were handpicked to be a cut above the ordinary. As usual, each box is stocked with products that are tailored to your personal needs, from CW BEGGS AND SONS Shower, Shampoo, and Shave (a 3-in-1 morning multitasker) to Hanz de Fuko Claymation (a versatile blend of clay and wax that can sculpt most any hairstyle). Each box also includes a unique lifestyle item, like Coalatree's Nomad Backpack, an ultralight bag that folds into its own pocket for maximum portability. The ability to wake up on time, however, is sadly not included.
Gadgets and fitness have a dubious relationship at best. Improve it with the EcoMill Treadmill. This eco-friendly workout machine requires no electricity, instead relying on the curved surface and your own movement for its power. An onboard generator creates the juice, and while you might think your slow gallop/really fast walk is enough to power the display only, it actually does enough to charge up any USB gadget, which gives the phrase "running around looking for a phone charger" a whole new meaning.
Even if the menu says "gluten-free", it's hard to feel certain that whatever you're ordering when you're dining out is really gluten free. Unless you're packing a Nima Allergen Sensor along with you. This pocketable device lets you load a bite of your food into a test pod, slide it into the device, and in two minutes know for sure whether there's any gluten in it or not. It can detect traces of gluten down to 20 parts per million, and will be available for peanut and dairy testing in the future.
As anyone who's ever visited a tannery can tell you, leather has a very distinct, alluring scent. Ralph Lauren Polo Supreme Leather Cologne celebrates this fact by mixing the smell of leather with a blend of spices, resulting in a warm, rich scent that's an ideal accompaniment to the cool air and bright colors of fall. Exclusive to Bloomingdale's, it comes in a 4.2 oz size and arrives in a fittingly dark brown bottle.
Clean living doesn't mean much if you're taking in all sorts of chemicals through your armpits. Ursa Major Natural Deodorant gives you odor and wetness protection without the chem lab cocktail. It's made using 100% natural ingredients like aloe, clay, eucalyptus, and hops, absorbs moisture, kills off odor-causing bacteria, has a very light scent with notes of ginger, rosemary, and lemon, and won't leave pit stains on your shirts.
Our first collaboration with the grooming gurus at Harry's sold out fast. Very fast. So we're back with another one, this time with a special addition. The new, all-black Harry's x Uncrate Shave Set includes a stealth Truman razor with German-made black blade cartridges, a black travel cover, Harry's excellent shave cream, and, new-to-the-set, a black anodized aluminum razor stand. Available in limited quantities, so act fast if your face fur is getting out of hand.
Unlike a pair of jeans or even a new car, there are no try-ons or test drives when it comes to tattoos. And for every amazing piece of art on someone's skin, there are five regrettable pieces being hidden from the light of day. Inkbox Two-Week Tattoo gives you a chance to wear some ink, without the commitment and price that goes along with a trip to the parlor. It doesn't look childish or too fake, and takes only 10 minutes to apply without the pain of a tattoo gun. It's fruit-based and lasts two weeks, giving you a chance to "demo" a design you're thinking of having done permanently, or provides you with a little edge for your first trip to the county jail.
Staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your body. But it's not always easy to keep track of your water intake. The Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle with Smart Lid is out to change that. The bottle links to a companion app that has you enter your age, weight, and activity info to create a customized hydration goal, then lets you know how you're doing throughout the day. The bottle can also sense how much water is left and check its temperature, giving you a heads up if you're about to chug some nasty hot water.
Nutritional supplements can be highly beneficial. Unfortunately, the staff down at the local GNC doesn't know much more about your nutritional needs than the staff at the local greasy spoon. The Nourish Intelligent Supplement System, on the other hand, does. This countertop gadget syncs with the fitness trackers, food loggers, and health apps on your phone to better understand your dietary needs and then spits out an ideal cocktail of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to keep your feeling your best. The powdered supplements are delivered from RFID-enabled "seeds" to a 70g silicone shot glass, which you then squeeze to let the goods drop into the drink of your choice.
The air is hot. You've been active. And now there's a sensation coming from your shorts that lets you know you'll need to hit the shower soon. Combat this situation with Jack Black Dry Down Friction-Free Powder. It helps keep your man bits and undercarriage smooth and dry, smells good, and also helps to prevent chafing — which comes in handy when you find yourself walking around all day, whether it's at a theme park, family reunion, or just taking your furry friend for a stroll.
No, it's not made with the popular brand of Scotch whisky. Instead, Johnnie Walker Moustache Wax is made to complement it. As anyone with serious facial hair can attest, sometimes the flavors of other foods and drinks can get left behind in your growth, altering the flavor of whatever you're enjoying later. This wax uses this to its advantage, allowing you to groom your upper lip rug while adding the essence of pepper, citrus, or ginger to your next drink.
Charcoal is great for grilling foods. Turns out, it's also good for cleaning teeth. The Nano-B Toothbrush has bamboo charcoal particles on half its bristles, leveraging the material's natural whitening properties to give you a brighter smile. The other half of its bristles have genuine gold nano-particles that kill bacteria, both in your mouth and on the brush. All the bristles are cut in a way that rounds their edges, so they're softer on sensitive enamel and gums, and are double-layered, with long bristles to clean hard-to-reach areas, and short bristles for polishing. Travel case included.
Using a straight razor is a great way to get a close shave — but only if you keep it sharp. Help keep yours in great shape with this Bison Made Horsehide Razor Strop. Made by hand in the USA using Russet horsehide from Horween in Chicago, it also uses screws sourced from the windy city to allow for quick and easy disassembly when it's time to replace the hide or the cotton-linen canvas lining that works to remove moisture post-shave.
We all know beer is made with hops, barley, and yeast. But as it turns out, those ingredients do a great job of taking care of your hair and skin, too. Cooked up by the mad scientists at Carlsberg Laboratories and cosmetics maker Urtegaarden, Carlsberg Beer Beauty leverages the vitamin B and silicium in these beer-making ingredients to create shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion. And lest you think they're just using the name to get noticed, remember that each bottle contains 0.5 litres of real Carlsberg beer.
We know it's grilling season, but don't let your last cookout fool you into thinking that Sort of Coal Kuro Charcoal Shampoo is made using leftover Kingsford. Instead, it's crafted using white charcoal powder from juvenile Korean Red Pine needles — which means it does a great job of removing dirt, oil, and other impurities from your hair. Handmade in Denmark using natural materials.
After making the decision to have a piece of art tattooed on your body, you'd better take the time to properly care for your permanent investment. Anchor & Bliss Tattoo Moisturizer is all-natural, vegan, and alcohol free, and isn't just something to apply for the first couple weeks after your session, but can be used long term. Choose from three different scents and watch your skin stay soft and healthy while your tattoo remains nearly as vivid and crisp as the day you were inked.
There are plenty of bearded dudes walking around these days, but not very many are taking proper care of their crop. And who knows beards better than the Amish? Honest Amish Beard Balm is made with all natural products, including a blend of hair strengthening botanicals infused in a base of virgin argan, avocado, grapeseed, virgin pumpkin seed, and apricot kernel oils. It keeps your beard looking and feeling top notch, and the balm will even keep new growth from itching as you grow your beard to Amish levels of amazing.
