Birchbox Man May 2015: Lessons Learned from this Months Box

Aluminum Keeps Fragrance Fresh

The sleek vessel is one of many reasons to covet Montales spicy-smooth fragrancebut its not just for show. Aluminum actually helps the cologne last longer by blocking out heat and light, preserving its ingredientsincluding a tree resin called Aoud thats worth almost twice as much as gold.

Its Okay to Play in the Mud

Were not sure how mud got such a dirty rap, but it consists largely of one of Mother Earths best purifiers: clay. The Baxter of California Clay Mask contains two varieties that can change your complexion with once-weekly use. Meanwhile, Billy Jealousy Slush Fund Styling Mud mimics clays dense, uber-absorbent consistency to provide a high yet easily workable hold and matte finish.

The Skinny Tie Is Timeless, Not Trendy

Weve met our share of later adopters to the slender-tie trendbut eventually, they all come around. Besides, a long, lean, symmetrical tie is a classic look in its own right. This one in particular, in light brushed cotton, has a coolly casual appeal that pairs beautifully with rolled-up sleeves.

In Everyday Essentials, Less Is More

Tis the season to shed the excess. Taft Liner Socks will go unnoticed under a pair of loafers or broguesand thats precisely the point. The low-profile layer will keep feet comfy and dry all season without compromising your bare-ankled summer swagger. (Did we mention guys love them?) Similarly, the Mizu M4 is a scaled-down approach to the water bottleat 14 ounces, its perfect for the office, gym, or anywhere you can refill on the regular.

The Right Wash Could Help You Sleep Later

Most of us would give anything for a few extra moments of shuteye. English Laundrys ingenious three-in-one wash acts as a shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Slather it all over in the shower to buy back some timeand if youre serious about simplifying, swap some other miracle multitaskers into your routine.
