74 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | JULY 2016 Beauty/ Men TOP LEFT: GETTY IMAGES; ARMANDO SANCHEZ Head Games With grooming goods like these, every guy's a winner. UNDER CONTROL Is he searching for the right substance to style and tame his mop—but can't decode the choices? Here's a cheat sheet to help you translate. American Crew Defi ning Paste GO•247 Grooming Cream Woody's Quality Grooming Messy Marrakesh for Men Porter Styling Gel A Close SHAVE Launchpad Presents: TRY! TRY! TRY! TRY! School him on smooth, in three easy steps! 1 Have him start by gently sloughing away dead cells to create an even canvas for the blade. Try new V76 by Vaughn Exfoliating Facial Cleanser, an eco-friendly starch- based scrub with caffeine and chamomile to calm and reduce redness. 2 Next, he'll shave! When he uses an emollient, such as conditioning Clubman Pinaud Shave Oil, he provides a silky barrier that allows the razor to glide easily, drastically reducing nicks and cuts. 3 Follow up freshly shorn skin with a soothing toner to reduce irritation and prevent dryness. While not a traditional aftershave, Repêchage Algo Mist Hydrating Seaweed Facial Spray more than fi ts the bill, thanks to moisture- binding seaweed and anti-infl ammatory aloe vera. SCENTS OF SPIRIT When it comes to inspiration for men's grooming, what better place to start than happy hour? Here are two products that prove spirits are good for more than just drinking! 1 Back for a limited time, fan favorite Paul Mitchell Mitch Agave Bar employs a blend of natural cleansers and leaves behind a deliciously masculine cedar and agave scent. In some regions of Mexico, Agave americana is distilled to produce mezcal (of which, tequila is one!)—but here, the extract is used for its skin-soothing properties. 2 Harkening back to traditional barbershops, Jack Dean by Denman International American Bay Rum Classic Hair Tonic stimulates and moisturizes the scalp while imparting a slick style. Originally, the distinctive fragrance was distilled from bay leaves soaked in bay oil and rum—but the natural formula still calls on aromatic cloves and patchouli. 1 2 Paste: Proffers moldability and staying power; ideal for nearly any hair length or type; generally water- based, so applying to dry or damp hair prevents dilution. Cream: Adds moisture, tames fl yaways and provides light to medium hold, while still maintaining natural movement and a subtle sheen; use on damp or dry hair. Wax: Versatile, pliable styler that can be reshaped; imparts fullness, piece-y texture and grip; works best in hair that's dry or slightly damp. Gel: Keeps strands in place, with strengths that vary by product from light to ultra-strong; apply to wet hair for hold with shine.
