The Everyday Man: Oars + Alps
I don't take men's grooming lately. I'm constantly try out new products and seeing what the market for men's grooming holds. Awhile back, I was sent a couple products from Oars + Alps. With grandma passing and all of the other extremities I haven't had the time to do this post the way I wanted to in a styling sense. So now with the clouds blowing over the colorful skies, it's time to feature these amazing products.
"Oars + Alps was built on the herculean objective to give active guys the best possible skincare with the most powerful ingredients - all without the hassle, toxins, and massive markup. Our team of leading chemists formulate highly effective skincare for your on-the-go life." - Oars + Alps Mission Statement
Each of their products exclude parabens, pthalates, sulfates, and microbeads, which are found in the everyday big business grocery store products; in which are dangerous for the skin. In continuing, these products from Oars + Alps have caribou moss in them. When I was researching, it sounded mystical to me. With a bit of research, I learned that this moss is extremely good for your skin. It takes down inflammation, it softens the skin (the charcoal helps with exfoliation), and it cleans the pours. So you definitely want to try these products out. My skin is a mixture of dry and oily, and it works perfectly for me.
The packaging is also a nice breath of air. With being in the men's grooming product industry, a plethora of companies tend to feed off of other companies. Oars + Alps, have this warm yet inviting blue color that is in the aesthetic. It's paying homage to the name of Oars + Alps. Gotta love looking at things are brand aspect right?
This is how I use them
Step 1: Shower but don't wash your face.
Step 2: Dampen your face (beard as well) with warm water and rub the charcoal stick all over your face. Be careful, don't get it in your eyes. I also have to hit my eyebrows because they're the driest part of my face.
Step 3: With warm water, massage into your face.
Step 4: Remove the charcoal wash from your face.
Step 5: Use face cream under your eyes, and your cheeks. Your face will feel great and refreshed after every use.
