Are you one of those people who jumped on the beard bandwagon when it became cool? Well I have some bad news for you. That mountain man look of yours could be costing you that coveted job you’re after!

Life is all about making those all-important first impressions, and a recent survey conducted by Edge Shave Gel found that more than half (59%) of Americans (including 69% of Millennials) agree that whether a man has facial hair is a major factor in forming a first impression of him. And that if two candidates were equally qualified for the job, 70% of Americans would be more likely to hire the man without facial hair than the one with it*. Chew on those stats for a moment.

Now you might not agree with the findings, but facts are facts, and in this competitive job market, you’ve got to use every “edge” to get ahead. So it’s important that you follow these steps to ensure that you present yourself as a professional during your interview:

  • Make sure your suit is cleaned and pressed.
  • Get a haircut beforehand.
  • Clip and clean your fingernails.
  • Shave off any facial hair.

Again, it’s all about making a really good first impression and presenting yourself in the best light possible.

Of course, the only thing worse than showing up to an interview with a bushy beard is showing up with an irritated face. That’s why you need to use the Schick Hydro 5 Razor, which is designed like no other razor to protect your skin from irritation, along with Edge Shave Gel.

The Schick Hydro 5 razor has been a lifesaver for me, as shaving would always cause my skin to get really irritated, especially around my goatee area. But that’s no longer an issue with the Hydro® 5. The large guard bar at the base of the cartridge is designed to help stretch the skin and provide a smooth shave. The five Ultra Glide® blades are close together, minimizing skin bulge between each blade to protect from irritation. And the Hydrating Gel Reservoir now hydrates throughout each shave.

Edge Shave Gel is formulated with conditioners, lubricating molecules and a unique blend of emollients that enhance razor glide while helping to protect against the daily irritations shaving can cause. With six unique formulations, Edge Shave Gels offer customizable comfort and for various skin types. I have been using it for awhile now, and I couldn’t be happier with it.

So what do you say, who’s ready to rock that clean-shaven look and make a great first impression?

March Madness is my favorite time of year.. But it’s also the most stressful, as all it takes is one little upset to send my bracket into a tailspin. The same holds true when it comes to your grooming game. Finding the right personal care products can be a shoot and miss. So before game day is here, we’re here to help you find the items you need to stay fresh and clean before the jump ball.

Now I know what you’re thinking.. “Hey, I use soap, what more do I need?” Sorry guys, but it’s time to expand your personal care regimen beyond functional hygiene and get something that celebrates your true character and what makes you unique.

I’m personally a big fan of Unilever’s Men’s grooming products, which include AXE, Degree, Suave Men, and Dove Men + Care. They’ve got a wide variety of scents to choose from, all the products work great, and they won’t break the bank. They’re also the Official Men’s Personal Care Products of the NCAA®.

I’ve been using AXE products since college, and they’re constantly adding new products and scents that work great and smell amazing. I highly recommend AXE Body Wash (Apollo is my favorite), AXE Body Spray (to stay fresh on the go) and AXE Styling (to keep your hair looking on point all day long).

Degree Advanced Protection Deodorant is a must as well, as it provides powerful sweat and odor protection with a fresh fragrance, no matter what life throws your way.. even if it’s a last-minute loss at the buzzer.

I’m confident that once you see and feel the benefits of their products, you will realize these brands make the perfect starting lineup for your grooming and hygiene needs.

If you’re ready to improve your personal grooming game, Target has some pretty sweet offers for you to take advantage of now and in the coming weeks:

  • From 3/11 – 3/17, buy any four AXE, Degree Men, Dove Men+Care or Suave Men products, and you’ll receive a $5 Target Gift Card.
  • From 3/18 – 3/24, score 15% off any AXE, Dove Men + Care, Suave Men or Degree Men product when you use the Cartwheel app.
  • From 3/25 – 4/7, score 10% off any AXE, Dove Men + Care, Suave Men or Degree Men product when you use the Cartwheel app.

So what are you waiting for? Head down to your local Target and take advantage of these killer deals before it’s too late! And let us know which product(s) you ended up buying in the comments.

Odell Beckham Jr.  works as Head & Shoulders massage therapist

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. picked up a little side gig, working as a Head & Shoulders massage therapist, much to the surprise of his fans.

NOT!

Actually, Head & Shoulders’ new mane man pulled off a hilarious prank, going undercover at the Shoulders of Greatness Spa as a massage therapist. Odell surprised some of his fans with scalp and shoulder massages to help relieve the pressures they carry on their shoulders.

Watch as Beckham rubs them down and goes on and on about how his fans have “shoulders of greatness” and “really nice scalps” before revealing his true identity and making the day of some of his biggest fans! Seriously, how great is that?

Say Goodbye To Shaving Nicks And Cuts With Glyder Styptic Balm

Use Glyder To Stop Shaving Nicks In Their Tracks

Shaving technology has advanced pretty far since the introduction of the straight razor, but it is still no walk in the park. Not only that, but unless you work as a lumberjack, you probably need to shave regularly in order to professional.

Shaving means risking all kinds of horrors.. Electric razors never give you a clean enough shave, leaving you with no choice but to risk turning your face into a labyrinth of bloody cuts, even if you’ve got the steady hands of a surgeon. The best you could hope for was to use a chalky, evil-smelling styptic pencil to get some relief.

Introducing Glyder

Glyder Styptic Shaving Balm

The days of plastering little squares of toilet paper all over your face are over. Glyder Styptic Balm, the best shaving care product you never knew you needed, is here to save you from the horrors of blood on your shirt collar or from smelling like the inside of a medicine cabinet.

Using the same antihemorrhagic agents that that make styptic pencils work, Glyder stops your bleeding in its tracks without that awful smell or chalky feel. Loaded with all-natural skin soothing substances like Argan Oil, Vitamin E, and Aloe Vera, Glyder doesn’t just keep you from getting bloody – it helps repair the damage you just did to your face in a way that’s scientifically proven. It’s also a lot more hygienic than a roll of toilet paper!

Save Your Face with Glyder

Glyder Styptic Shaving Balm

Nobody thinks about the beating men’s faces go through. Years of pummeling your skin on a daily basis can leave your face looking like it’s made out of shoe leather, and unless you’re Robert Redford that’s not a look everyone can pull off. Plus, do you really want to look like you lost a fight with an angry badger?

You can short-circuit all that garbage with Glyder. Combining styptic agents with skin-soothers and making it easy to apply with a balm that feels clean on your skin and doesn’t make you smell awful, Glyder not only stops bleeding caused by shaving nicks and cuts but protects your face in the long run.

So Glyder must be some super-expensive product that only the most affluent can afford, right? Think again – it’s just $9.99, available straight from the company. Glyder even throws in free shipping and a 30-day money back guarantee, so you’ve got nothing to lose.

So what are you waiting for, try out Glyder for yourself today!
