Grooming: Memorial Day Fun in the Sun Skin Protection

18 05 2009

Memorial Day is just a week away, but before you pack up and head to the beach for a long weekend in the sun, it’s time to stock up on your sun protection arsenal.  And while there are a myriad of options at your local drugstore, the following are some of my favorites. 

Every Man Jack
Every Man Jack, the line that has been bringing affordable grooming to the masses at Target stores nationwide, has just launched their new SPF collection, which includes a Face Lotion SPF 15, Body Lotion SPF 30 and a dual-pack Lip Balm SPF 15.  The line is enriched with aloe and vitamin E to soothe and hydrate while a combo of octinoxate, octisalate and oxybenzone provide broad spectrum protection from aging UVA and burning UVB rays. 
Retail Price: $5.00 each
Available at Target and

Mercola Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 implements a secret recipe from the people of Acapulco.  The all-natural formula is a great alternative to common chemical-laden sunscreens. Blended with rich oils, soothing compounds and antioxidant-rich green tea, this sunscreen nourishes and moisturizes skin, protecting it from sunburn, while reducing sun damage. 
Retail Price: $18.97

Jock Block™, part of the M.V.P Advanced Skincare Collection, is a gentle, non-greasy moisturizing formula that combines the newest nano and bio-technologies.  If that sounds too advanced, all you really need to know is that it provides full spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays while blocking over 85 percent of all forms of UV rays.  My favorite part is that this sunblock doesn’t clog pores, so you won’t have to worry about skin breakouts, or sunburns for that matter, when you return to the office
Retail Price: $32.00

TOPMAN Opening Shop in NYC

20 03 2009

In case it isn’t obvious from the name of my blog, or even the logo; I love Britain.  They’ve given us such treasures as Matt Lucas and David Walliams of Little Britain and Ricky Gervais, creator and star of The Office (the original).  Did I mention they also have amazing tea?

On April 2nd, the States will get another gift from the little island across the Atlantic when TOPMAN opens shop at Broadway & Broome Street in NYC.
