男人盒子:帮助男人保持新鲜感

作为一个男人可能是粗暴的。好吧,好吧,做一个人可能很糟糕。But, as a man, I’m a bit more familiar with the foibles and tribulations that come with men’s personal care.

On average, men don’t have a lot of guidance when it comes to upkeep. Sure, there are blogs, magazines, and television shows dedicated to assisting men with this aspect of life, but it is far from how much attention, money, and marketing goes behind women’s personal care.

This changes now! LuckyVitamin recently debuted its first Man Box. In the past, we’ve offered chic little Beauty Bags, stuffed with the best natural personal care samples around. Until now, these have been predominantly aimed at women. The Man Box is the same idea: our in-house experts have used their knowledge to pull together some fantastic samples geared toward dudes.

Allied Market Research has predicted a boom in the area of men’s personal care by 2022 (1). The research company attributes this to changing lifestyles and more informed male consumers. In fact, Forbes released a report in 2018 stating that skincare products are on the rise for men. In the demographic of 18- to 44-year-olds surveyed, 84 percent said they used some type of facial skincare (2).

If you’re a man who wants to start taking better care of your skin, hair, and body in general, then the Man Box is ideal for you. The samples included are perfect for establishing a daily regimen and sticking with it. (Don’t forget, you can order full-size versions of any of these products!)

I’ve been using these samples myself over recent weeks, so I can give guys a good idea of WHAT’S IN THE BOX! (se7en, anyone?)

Scrub Down Rundown

For your shower experience, the Man Box includes a few different sample options for body washes and soaps. The washes include Method Men Cedar + Cypress, Andalou Naturals (安达露) 3-in-1 Wash, Shea Moisture Men Bourbon Commodore 4-in-1, and Grandpa Soap Co. Pine Tar Body Wash.

Personally, I don’t use combination products. I like to have a wash be a wash, a shampoo be a shampoo, etc. Still, the 3-in-1 provided by Andalou and the 4-in-1 by Shea Moisture might be a great fit for men who are just starting to poke around the personal care world and want to keep things simple. Though all these washes have alluring scents, I found my favorite to be the Method Men wash. The cedar scent really does make you feel like you’re strolling through a wooded area in the misty morning. Seriously, though!

The box also includes a bar soap, because sometimes a wash isn’t enough to scrub away the dirt and grime that have built up after a day of physical exertion. Made by Herban Cowboy, this bar soap is vegan and cruelty-free, which means you can shower without any guilt. Formulated to be tough, the soap is perfect for washing after an intense gym session, some time on the field, or just because you want to feel fresh!

Armpit Attention

Herban Cowboy has also provided a post-shower necessity: deodorant! Like the soap, this dry spray deodorant is made for men who are on the go and need to smell as great as possible all the while. Unlike the spray deodorants used by young men in high school, this won’t suffocate you with a cloud of noxious cologne-like air. Instead, a quick spray under your arms will leave you feeling nice throughout your day.

Also included in the box is an Every Man Jack aluminum-free cedarwood deodorant. This brand has been a favorite of mine since it was introduced to me by our in-house personal care experts! Often, natural deodorants can be hit or miss. Every Man Jack, on the other hand, keeps you smelling absolutely fresh throughout the day. The cedarwood scent is also awesome— something you can feel proud rubbing under your arms!

Care About Your Hair

The average man tends to keep his hair somewhat short. Though this has changed a great deal in recent years, you’re still more likely to see a man with a neat, tight cut. Despite shorter hair length, men still need to take proper care of their follicles! This is especially true if you’re dealing with scalp problems like dandruff. The Grandpa Soap Co. has provided samples of a shampoo and a conditioner, formulated with tea tree oil and pine tar to help men keep flakes off their shoulders.

Don’t Forget the Moneymaker

Finally, it’s time to talk about your face. No matter how handsome you might be, the ravages of time are eventually going to start taking a toll. Whether you’ve still got pristine skin or you’re dealing with wrinkles, establishing a skincare regimen is the best way to keep fine lines at bay.

While you might not want to go too in-depth at first, the basic steps to remember are cleansing and moisturizing. The Man Box includes samples from Bull Dog to help establish a routine: first you wash with the cleanser, then apply shave gel for shaving, and after you’ve finished mowing out your whiskers, you apply moisturizer to help your skin stay fresh. It really is that easy and can be repeated daily for a sensible, effective way to keep your face looking fantastic.

While most boxes for men are heavy on shaving supplies, the beauty of the Man Box is that is focuses more on proper hair and skincare. Still, we’d be remiss if we didn’t include something for men with facial hair! Okay Pure Naturals has provided a men’s professional beard pomade so you can style your epic facial hair in whatever way you like. The Mountain Man look might be fine for some, but keeping everything slick and shaped will definitely do your look more justice.

Last, but definitely not least, the Man Box includes an unscented lip balm by Badger (贝吉獾). You need to keep those lips looking moisturized, after all! The unscented stick is great for men who have an aversion to the fruity and floral scents typically found in these balms.

So there you have it! The Man Box. A simple, straightforward way for dudes all over to stay fresh whenever. Go get ’em, guys.
