With a growing demand for vegan-friendly products, we feel it's important to offer a selection of shaving products that are made with zero animal by-products. Some shave soaps contain rendered animal fats, such as tallow or lanolin, however there are a number of brands who make vegan friendly options, such as various oils, butters, and glycerin derived from vegetables.
We all have our old favourites that we keep coming back to time and time again, but sometimes it's fun to keep things new and fresh. This is why we love to add to our selection of shaving soaps at MenEssentials! Check out what's new from a brand you already love, Barrister & Mann, plus a whole new brand, Henri et Victoria.
To say that 2015 was the year of the beard would definitely be an understatement. It seems like every male was bearded, no matter where you looked. 2015 was also the year of totally off-the-wall beard style ideas, and while they can make interesting Instagram photos, these looks don't quite translate to walking around in your every day life. So here's a recap of the craziest facial hair trends we spotted in 2015.
As with the beginning of every new year, now is a great time to revamp your life. From resolutions to eat better, quit smoking, go to the gym, etc., everyone seems very into the whole "self-improvement" thing come January 1st. When it comes to improving your grooming routine, it's important to look back at everything you learned the previous year and keep an eye out for new trends. Here are a few tips from MenEssentials to help you get 2016 on track!
The U.S. has officially passed a law to ban the microbeads found in face wash for good! The damage these beads cause to your skin is alarming, let alone the enormous damage they are doing to the environment when washed down the drain. According to an article published by Newsweek, studies have found "that roughly 8 trillion microbeads are currently finding their way into streams and oceans in the U.S. every single day. That’s enough tiny plastic balls to cover more than 300 tennis courts. And that’s only 1 percent of the total microbeads discharged each day."
