Men’s Personal Care Anyone?

anthony

SweetSpot Labs knows how to take care of a woman’s needs, but what about the men, who is taking care of them?  I am not talking about organic, anti-aging, wrinkle defying, self-tanning skin care products, but real keep me clean all day long products.  Billy Jealousy has a whole line of products for a man, unfotunately, most stop at the neck.  They’ve got pre-shave treatment, hair strengthening shampoo and wipe-out eye cream, but what about the rest of the body?  Molton Brown and Baxter of California both create luxury items for grooming while for a more rough and tumble sort of product Anthony Logistics has you covered, with products like the mud scrub exfoliating bar that I just might have to check into.  But if you are looking for something more rustic and even less expensive try Woody’s Meat and Potatoe Soap, you can pick it up for $6.95 at Brighton Beauty Supply.  Better yet, buy one of each, give it to the man in your life and reclaim your bottle of SweetSpot Labs gentle wash this Super Bowl season.

Skin Inc Declares Personal Care Products Buck Declining Sales Trends

by Tami Chase

We knew it and now the statistics proved it, sales of personal care items are on the rise!  When people are struggling mentally they need a mood booster and personal care products might be just the thing to do it.  Surpassed only by food and beverage according to Skin Inc, beauty industry sales were up by 5.65% compared to the same period in December 2007.

We tend to let ourselves go a little during the winter because so much is covered up, but Spring is just around the corner, so don’t let your lack of daily rituals get too out of control.  Nothing picks me up better than a good mani-pedi…well maybe a good facial 🙂

Enough day dreaming, get out there to your favorite beauty supply, salon or day spa and fill up on a bag full of mood boosters.

And as always, don’t foget to keep your sweet spot set!

What’s in Your Boudoir?

by Tami Chase

While me may not equate a boudoir with the stylings of the Louis the XVI period pictured above, we do each have our own individual style and products we like to keep stocked in it.  Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a lady, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber, being the female equivalent of the male cabinet

For me, no matter how elaborateluxury-bath1 or not, my boudoir must contain some luxurious lotions to keep my skin hydrated like Lollia’s Grenadine and Tonic Shea Butter Handcreme, a plush robe and slippers for me to lounge around in while I get ready, fabulous brushes and mirrors by Ziba Beauty and last but not least my SweetSpot Labs balancing mist in citrus galbanum.

No matter what your taste or style it is sure to make your time more luxurious surrounded by the things you love. 

What’s in your boudoir?

Something Sweet For Your Man From Tyra Banks

Py Kim’s Fortune Cookie Recipe

INGREDIENTS

3 egg whites
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets, or line with parchment paper. Have fortunes ready to go on small strips of paper.
2. In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites and sugar on high speed of an electric mixer until frothy, about two minutes. Reduce speed to low, and stir in melted butter, vanilla, almond extract, water and flour one at a time, mixing well after each. Consistency should resemble pancake batter. Spoon the batter into two-inch circles on the prepared baking sheets. Leave room between for spreading.
3. Bake for five to seven minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges begin to brown slightly. Quickly remove one at a time, place a message in the center, and fold in half. Fold the ends of the half together into a horse shoe shape. If they spring open, place them in a muffin tin to cool until set.

Remember to bake them long enough so they are golden around the edges, or they will be under-baked and remain soft, spongy and pancake-like. And no one wants the cookies o’ love to fall flat! Happy baking!

Menstruation Could Be Worse?

biabfullset1 

by Tami Chase

Here in America we tend to complain a lot when it comes to our period. We can learn a lot from other cultures that have a much different way of dealing with “that time of the month”.  In Nepal the girls are ostracized during that time (known as the chhaupadi), considered unpure and sent to a separate room away from the view of a male for up to 7 days.  Now here in America that sounds like a great thing and might solve a lot of problems in a household, but this is a very serious matter.  Most of the time the girls and women are forced into cowsheds that can be almost a mile away from the village.  The poorer ones use extremely dilapidated and unhygienic outhouses made from mud, stone, and wood with no windows.  Having been to Nepal myself I can attest to these types of structures.  (Go to Astitwa.com for more information).

 Fortunately for them these days, many women groups and NGO’s are taking the cause of opposing the chhaupadi system, which is a good thing which makes us optimistic about the elimination of the superstitious, discriminatory and inhuman tradition in the coming days.  And fortunately for us we have bidet-in-a-bottle by SweetSpot Labs, see menstruation could be worse.

Jock Soap

soap

Clearly the men of The Jock Soap Company were jealous that women now have a soap alternative to use in the shower for their sweetest spot.  SweetSpot Labs revolutionized the world of intimate grooming by formulating pH balanced products specifically for women, now The Jock Soap Company has done the same for our counterpart.  Meet their soap, So Fresh So Clean Jock Soap, Towel Fight Jock Soap and Score Jock Soap to name a few.  With ground almond meal on one side for exfoliation and sage/rosemary/basil/nutmeg blend for aroma you may want to use it in the kitchen instead!  We should be so happy a man is showing the way with his “Grooming Simplified” mantra, making the world a cleaner place one man at a time.  Thank you Josh Harrell.
