Top 10 Best Selling Men's Grooming Products

August 14, 2020


 

Here at the Emporium we talk a lot about loving what you wear and making sure the fit is just right.  But there’s work you can do at home to prepare for your present and future self…and that’s Self-Care.  As much as I wanted to have a men’s clothing shop, just as important was a Men’s Grooming section or as we historically call it, The Apothecary.


Taking care of your skin, hair, nails and teeth are what sets you apart as a Gentleman and will only help matching up with that special someone or getting that coveted job.  Plus…you’ll make your Mom and Grandma proud.
I was lucky to be taught great hygiene but didn’t learn about the details till college.  I remember visiting a friend of mine at WVU and getting ready in his bathroom shocked by all of the products he and his boyfriend used.  He asked what I use…”uhhh, acne soap”, there was a pause and then he responded with, “oh Travis…you have a lot to learn”.


I started with a better face wash and a face scrub.  Mind you, I was still in college so I didn’t have a lot of money but could find good products till I could afford better ones.
By my mid-20’s I started a morning regime that I’ve stuck with:

  • In the shower use a Face Wash every day…swapping out for a Scrub once a week.
  • Shave after a shower so your whiskers are soft and cut easily.
  • Astringent (Toner) is next to clean out your pores, close them up and balance the pH of your face. Helps if you have an oily nose and forehead.
  • Brush your teeth…shoot for 2 mins.
  • Eye Cream will help with dark circles and bags under eyes…and will make you look younger than you are years later.
  • Face Moisturizer is key, apply all over including your neck and forehead.
  • Beard Care includes moisturizing your beard with some Beard Oil or Beard Balm…balm is best for longer beards to help shape it. You don’t want an oily beard…go light.
  • Last step is your body…You Have To Start Moisturizing. I like to use a body oil, but lotion is great too.
This seems like a lot…not including shaving and brushing teeth…it probably only takes me 4 minutes every day.  This is the reason why people are shocked that I’m 45 years old.  Also, it’s never too late to start…your skin is craving the moisture.

Top 10 Best Selling Men's Grooming Products

Top Beard Balm

Beard Balm By Texas Beard Co. - $22.00

Texas Beard Company beard balms are the highest quality blends on the market. Thoroughly tested and designed to soften and condition your beard, they keep your beard shimmering without feeling greasy.  2 oz. tin.

Oil and Balm are very similar in that they both condition and style your beard. The main difference is that beard balm will do a little more to shape and hold your beard. Beard oil is usually enough for short beards, beard balm gives a little more aid to longer, wilder beards.

Ritual Face Cleanser - $30.00

Less is more. Especially when it comes to your face. Cleaning with normal soap will strip skin of natural oils and protective qualities leaving it dry and exposed. 'Ritual Face Cleanser' has been formulated to avoid drying and irritation by exploiting the natural benefits of Tamanu oil, Peppermint oil, Willow bark extract and Bentonite clay. A gentle, natural, peppermint scented formulation designed for everyday use 'Ritual' gently dissolves grime while toning the skin, leaving you feeling fresh and looking bright.

Top Face Moisturizer

Gameface Moisturizer - $50.00 

Gameface moisturiser is a tool to serve and protect you against the elements. Specifically engineered to be light on the skin and easily absorbed, Gameface is a unique formulation of Jojoba extract, Horopito oil, Ponga fern (Cumingii) and Vitamin E, combined with a subtle infusion of essential oils to deliver a fragrance we call 'smoke and wood'. The result is a nutrient rich, hydrating cream that will leave skin feeling toned, supple and fresh. A great moisturiser should add elasticity and toning; it should deliver active ingredients that work with the skins composition assisting it to stay in balance and uplifted. It should have active properties that can treat and protect the surface of the skin, addressing any surface inflammation or abrasions. And of course it should work to hydrate the skin, locking in the good oil to keep skin enriched and healthy.

I’M HERE TO HELP

Please Understand…as a Man, it’s ok to ask for help.  The entire basis of opening SAMSON is to allow guys a comfortable place to chill out, shop for clothing and ask questions about grooming and barware.   I’m sitting here hoping that you ask questions.  So, if you ask, I’ll tell you that shirt is too big for you or that you should match your belt with your shoes.  That’s no different for grooming.  If you’re unsure about a product or what it’s for…just ask.  If your knowledge of hygiene is washing your hair and body with the same product…we can build off of that and start slow.  But trust me…you’ll love the results and want to continue on this path of being a better man.

All My Best,
Travis Samson
