  • BAXTER SHAVE BRUSH

    BAXTER SHAVE BRUSH

    A Brush With Luxury.

    Baxter of California specializes in fine skin products for gentlemen and they’ve pulled out all the stops with this shaving brush, guaranteed to pamper your skin.

    Made in Germany these 100% natural badger brushes are made with fine hair that’s soft and durable. As we all know, second to the razor blade, a good shaving brush is an essential tool for achieving the best possible shave. Badger hair has a great ability to retain water (which helps create a luxurious lather when mixed with a shave cream), improving the barrier between the razor and skin, lifting facial hair to ensure a smoother shave with less irritation.

    It’s a simple yet sublime treat your skin will thank you for.

    LA ROCHE-POSAY LIPIKAR BODY BALM

    Lipikar Balm is for both men and women; it's fragrance free, has an ultra-absorbing texture, and as we move into Winter, a little will go a long way to moisturize and protect. Good for the kiddos, too!

    Sold at spas, online and now in Walgreen's, TheLUXURIAN is hooked on this wonder cream. (We think you might be, too.)

    TONING'S NOT JUST FOR THE BOD

    Whether you're at the office, traveling or just out and about all day and are looking for a quick way to freshen up, at TheLUXURIAN, we love these Bliss toner pads.

    They're like a little luxe pick-me-up in a jar and are great anytime, but especially to combat shine in the summer. Use to touch up your make-up for completely toned, mattified and fresh-fresh skin. Great for men, too! Well, minus the make-up bit.

  • PATRICIA WEXLER, M.D. SKIN PRODUCTS

    PATRICIA WEXLER, M.D. SKIN PRODUCTS

  • WE'LL LOVE YOU 'TIL THE CROWS COME HOME

    WE'LL LOVE YOU 'TIL THE CROWS COME HOME

    Here at TheLUXURIAN, we want you men to stave off those crow's feet for as long as possible, so we've taken it upon ourselves to put together this definitive luxe list of our top five eye cream faves.

    A must-know tip when applying is to use your ring finger, dabbing underneath the eye from the corner inward. This will avoid too much pressure being put on this area. 

    You're most welcome, btw.

    01.  Ok, this baby's like a mortgage, but it's completely worth it. It'll look impressive in your bathroom, too, and a tiny bit goes a long way. Trust us, it'll last forevs.

    Chanel Eye Cream, $100.  chanel.com

    02.  Our second pick, is also from Chanel, and is Sublimage Eye, the ultimate in anti-aging luxury. This one's unfortunately like a mortgage plus, but for the same reasons as above, we love it as well. If you're concerned about puffiness and dark circles (hello? too many bourbons last night?) this one's your saviour.

    Sublimage Eye, $200.  chanel.com

    03.  Third on our list is this absolute oldie but a goodie from Kiehl's. A little more affordable than Chanel, it goes on a little less creamy than you'd expect, but it pretty much melts right into the tender skin around the eyes for instant dewy-ness. (I know, we're really getting you in touch with your feminine side, right?) But seriously, you'll thank us later.

    Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treaatment with Avocado, $28.50. nordstrom.com

    04.  Fourth on our list the classic eye cream from the peeps at Anthony Logistics for Men. There's green tea and caffiene to reduce puffiness, and it's really great for all skin types and those with allergies as it's free of all fragrance.

    Anthony Eye Cream, $28.  anthony.com

    05.  Last, but most certainly not least as it's one of our ultimate fave brands, is this gorgeous eye refiner from Erno Laszlo. This top luxe brand is going strong after many years, and, judging by both their amazing products along with their gorgeously designed web store, they're going to be around for a few more years. These folks just get it.
