Not everything that’s made specifically for men is better. Take Manwiches, for example. We prefer GlendaTheGoodwiches (less sodium).
Men’s multi-vitamins? No fair. Why should women get all the calcium?
And then there’s a little magazine called Playboy with its completely misguided tagline, Entertainment for Men. Imagine our shock when we found that it was full of nothing but boobs (among other things). Clearly, they don’t know what men really want.
But every once in a while, a product comes along that’s formulated just for the XY set that’s far superior to anything catering to those with the sugar-and-spice-and-everything-nice genetic composition.
Dallas-based Permission, Inc. is out to revolutionize skincare for men. With six products in their line, including Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer, Scrub, Shave and Eye Deed, they cover every facial need a man could have (well, except for fixing that nose you inherited from Grandpa de Bergerac).
What we like is that they make each product with the highest-quality ingredients, minus the obnoxious fragrances that plague many products. (Axe Body Spray, we’re talkin’ to you.) We love each of the products, but our two can’t-live-without favorites are the Toner and Eye Deed.
The Toner is the ideal pre-moisturizing treatment spray (just learn from us and don’t just close your eyes, cover them with your spare hand). The results are refreshing and a radiant glow and gentle firming are almost immediately apparent.
Eye Deed includes their exclusive Bo-Max Plus anti-aging complex, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles. But don’t be fooled by the Eye Deed name. It can also be used to reduce those tiny lines around the mouth area. You know, from frequently opening wide and saying, “Ahhhhh!”
Permission products last a long time, too, because they’re not jam-packed with unnecessary fillers and harsh ingredients. Unlike that can of Manwich in your pantry.
