Listen up, guys! Are you complaining about that seven-day Movember itch yet? Is your beard snowing like a White Christmas? Are you growing stubble too rough for your partner to kiss? Whatever your beard-ache might be, Meaghan Grigoleit, a barber at Old Glory Barber Shop in Venice Beach, California, recommends treating your beard to Layrite’s Concentrated Beard Oil! As a barber, she’s had her share of experiences with different beard oils. “Even if you’ve tried other beard oils,” Meaghan says, “You’ve never experienced a beard oil like this before.” Not only does she swear by this oil for clients, but she’s got her own boyfriend hooked.
Layrite’s new beard oil is revolutionary. The formula is thicker, easy to apply and doesn’t feel sticky or greasy on your manly beard. Expertly formulated by barbers, its thicker consistency delivers superb moisturization to hair and skin, leaving your beard feeling softer, healthier and well-groomed.
The thicker formula and tube design also eliminates the annoying droppers and too-tiny caps that make other beard oils messy and hard to dispense. No one has time for messy application, especially if you’re trying to minimize your grooming time. When it comes to beard oil formulations, thicker is better. Layrite breaks it down for you guys:
• Thicker means it’s easier to apply, making your beard faster to groom and easier to maintain.

When Cher sang the famous line, “If I could turn back time”, she was referring to past regret in how she treated a loved one. Expressing regret and wanting to go back in time to change something is fairly common in all of us. When I spend time in the store helping customers with skincare, many of them lament feelings of regret when it comes to the way they’ve treated their skin. Exposure to the sun, unhealthy habits and lifestyle often come back to haunt us in the form of sun damage, wrinkles and rough skin. Wanting to turn back time is a frequent desire when I’m helping a customer find a skincare product to reverse the signs of aging. In the past year, Yon-Ka Paris skincare launched their Age Exception range, focusing on the advanced signs of aging. The line began with a serum and cream, but has now expanded to include a new contours product and masque.
Anyone over 55 who wants to restore youthfulness to their skin will benefit greatly from the Cellular Code Long-Life Infusion Serum. Yes, it’s a mouthful, but this serum gets a lot done. A revolutionary cell-energy complex works to reprogram the skin’s youth code to boost cellular longevity which is responsible for communication, energy production and oxygenation, boosting the skin’s defense against free radical damage. Other specially-formulated patented key ingredients from Yon-Ka improve radiance, youthfulness and suppleness with each application. 2-3 pumps twice daily are recommended for best results.
When it comes to wavy and curly hair, there isn’t one magic formula that works for both. Each strand of hair is unique and requires special attention, technique and products to bring out its best bounce. Redken Haircare has been on a mission to create tailored styling systems for both curly and wavy hair types and has recently re-launched their Curvaceous line. Their new line reintroduces some favorites under exciting new packaging while expanding the line to offer more options for different hair types and needs.
Instead of having a one-size-fits-all approach to their Curvaceous shampoo, Redken now has three different options, depending on the type of curl. Whether the hair waves, curls or spirals, there is a specific shampoo that will cleanse it gently for the best possible appearance and bounce. The new Curvaceous High Foam Shampoo lathers like a regular shampoo, but doesn’t contain color and moisture stripping sulfates or parabens. Redken’s exclusive Curl Memory Complex is formulated with shape-activating sugar crystals, moisturizing Moringa oil and a protective UV filter. Every shampoo infuses hair with lightweight moisture, which is perfect for wavy hair types that need definition and bounce without any weight.
