Even men need a little extra help when it comes to choosing grooming products that are right for them. Luckily for us, they're slowly realizing their 'metrosexuality' and with that comes an interest in great skincare and shaving products. I happen to feel a great sense of pride when my husband lets me know he's out of his exfoliant, and it's just darn cute. Our latest addition to the men's category is a brand out of NYC, The Blind Barber.
The Blind Barber redefines modern manhood with their return to the 'roaring twenties' and the era of the modern gentleman. With shave as well as hair products in the range this is a brand that is inspired by fashion, music and lifestyle. The chic black and white packaging and signature scissors has an air of old school feeling to it and a time when every man went to the barber to get his clean, close shave. Although the range is small, that is the genius in it because men don't need a ton of options, just a few products that work for every guy. Some of the standouts are:
Blind Barber 90 Proof Hair Pomade is infused with hops (yes, like beer) that is protein rich for effortless styling and leaves hair with a workable matte finish. No need to reapply throughout the day the pomade has a very strong hold!
Blind Barber 60 Proof Hair Wax is also infused with hops and has a nutrient rich formulation to keep hair in place without weighing it down. In comparisons to the 90 proof, this has a medium hold for semi control. Hair might possibly have a bit of movement rather being unbudgeable.

You prep, polish, and pamper your skin with more beauty products than can fit in your vanity; you load your kids up with SPF every day before they head out to conquer the world; even the family dog takes a trip to the groomer once a month … forgetting anyone?
Men might be the last people you think of when it comes to primping and priming, but sometimes they need it more than anyone else! From shaving their face every morning, to working in the yard on weekends - their skin takes a beating and rarely gets relief! This week's 'Top Picks' post is dedicated to Men's skincare products your guy will love, and his skin will thank you for.
Art of Shaving Mid-Size Kit: A perfect place to start, this all-in-one kit includes travel sizes of top-selling Art of Shaving must-haves: Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, After-Shave Balm, and Shaving Brush. Known to provide optimal shaving results and help to prevent ingrown hairs, razor burn, and nicks, your man can sample these selections before purchasing the full-size versions. We love the Lemon or Lavender for summertime.
Blind Barber Watermint Gin Facial Cleanser: NEW to b-glowing.com, this multipurpose cleanser smells delicious and fresh, but not overpowering. Gentle enough for twice-daily use, this cleanser flights acne, hydrates, and leaves the skin feeling cool and fresh. Great for hot, sunny days!
J Paul Guard - Face & Body Lotion: A moisturizer and SPF for face and body all-in-one! We love this multipurpose, non-greasy formula that protects your man all over in one simple step. This water-resistant skin-saver packs-in SPF 20 AND nourishing ingredients to keep his skin supple and smooth - which you'll both appreciate.
Jack Black Epic Moisture MP10 Nourishing Oil: Women have recognized the benefits of facial and hair oils for years. Here's the Men's option! Formulated with 10 natural oils, this lightweight, fast-absorbing product both hydrates the skin, protects from harsh environmental elements, and improves the skin's overall appearance. Great for soothing the skin post-shave, and for taming crazy hair days!Read More »
The men of Blind Barber have always been about community. With their shops in New York and California, they’ve become a place for guys to gather and groom. It’s where men kick back, grab a shave over a cocktail, and connect.
Blind Barber is a lifestyle, where individuality is expressed through creativity. The coolest, most kind guys of the barbershop world are experts in grooming, of course; but beyond that, they’re also advocates for the community.
They've turned facial hair into a way to show they care through such organizations as Mustaches for Kids (they grow, as does support for children's charities) and No Shave November. They've also partnered with the likes of Terrell Owens to raise research funds for Alzheimer's Association, and worked to gather toiletries for Culver City's local non-profit, Beauty Bus.
For these reasons and more, we’re honoring Blind Barber as our first Man Crush Monday brand. Not only do they create superior grooming products that help save time and frustration (we especially love Regimen’s easy three-step system) but they also give back to the community they’ve worked so hard to create.
