HeFinds Guy Friday: Get Him in a Mask
October 27, 2006
…even when it’s not Halloween.
Why: You remember how much slumber parties with the girls were, movies, junk food, and beauty. Bonus points if you picked a face mask that was gooey and green, oh the rights of passage for young women. No need for the guys to be left out. Men don’t outgrow their skin issues just like they don’t outgrow fantasies about bouncing babes pillow fighting at those girly sleepovers of ours. Razor bumps was the most common skin problem that I heard about when I was researching our Groom Your Guy newsletter. Convincing a man to test out a facial mask was not easy but the benefits of blasting the bumps overcame any machismo.
What he said: “Don’t tell anyone that I said this, but stuff feels good when you put it on after shaving. I only did the lower part of my face where I shave but next time I’m gonna do my whole face because it said on the tube that it helps zits. It smells pretty manly so that made it feel less feminine. No miracle cure yet, but it does take the burn down a notch. I’d keep using it to see what happens. (Chris, Personal Trainer in Manhattan)
