Manscaped Review: Refining the Gentleman
Manscaping can be a hassle, but it doesn’t have to be…
Dude approved MANSCAPED is the #1 brand dedicated to taming the beast!
Even if you are a Yeti, you don’t have to look or smell like one. MANSCAPED is a full line of specially formulated hygiene products and tools designed explicitly for ‘below-the-belt’ male grooming.
The art of Dude Pruning has become the latest trend in refining a gentleman’s nether region, as well as other hairy man parts. Most guys think of manscaping as “below-the-belt; however, manscaping includes all hairy areas from the neck down.
The way a man grooms himself is a clear statement on how he views himself.
According to Business Wire, a staggering 89% of men consider good grooming essential to their professional success. Whether just a gentle shape and sculpt, or completely smooth aerodynamic body parts, manscaping is just plain common courtesy.
If you hear Welcome to the Jungle when unzipping your fly, you should seriously consider a little manscaping. To get out of this hairy situation, go for MANSCAPED (Click this link to see their website)
(aka BUSH Maintenance Trimmer)
Don’t start by taking a razor to that backwoods twig and berries. Trim the hedges with this high powered electric trimmer. Trimming first will take the volume of hair down to a reasonable length.
Now you can shave without mucking up the razor. Dragging that across your sensitive areas will only add to the irritation. A clogged blade makes a useless razor.
I have tried several different trimmers(check one out here) over the years, and the 1st thing I notice is pulling hairs.
Not only is this annoying, but it’s also painful!
The Lawn Mower is no ordinary trimmer! It’s designed to fit in the palm of your hand. If your hands are anything like mine, it will fit perfectly.
Maneuvering around my meat and potatoes can be precarious! A giant appliance between my legs isn’t going to cut it (pun intended)!
The powerful yet portable trimmer comes with a detachable and adjustable safety guard allowing maximum maneuverability. Trim the jungle without fear of injuring the wildlife.
TIP: Never, under any circumstances use the trimmer without a guard on your nuts. That skin is so delicate and pliable that it is susceptible to catching in the trimmer, a painful, bloody mess.
*AA battery included
After using the manscaping trimmer, MAN-UP!
It’s time to use the double-edged razor to put the finishing touches on your goods. The single blade safety razor will give you that super smooth finish.
Personally, I was a little freaked out and hesitant to try it. Once I did, I realized how easy it is! I’ll never look back! Now my wife calls me Smooth Move.
NOTE: Consider leaving a small patch of hair, what most of us call a landing strip, above your shaft to avoid looking prepubescent.
The best technique I found is to trim the bush first, using the guard as we have already discussed. Then shave the Bojangles by pulling the skin tight and smooth. Don’t be afraid to stretch the boys as low as they can go. Don’t worry – these little guys are resilient and will bounce right back into shape.
Even country singer Rodney Carrington sings about his balls wanting a good shave!
One of the first rules of Manscaping is to get rid of nasty Fumunda Cheese, that unpleasant combination of ball sweat and naturally occurring body odor. Not sure about you, but man musk is not the scent I want to have on me.
I love the smell of the Crop Cleanser body wash. It’s amazingly fresh and clean. I can vouch for the staying power. That fresh scent lingers all day.
Truthfully, there is no better way to sink the stink than to wash your boys with this body wash. It’s gentle enough to use daily and powerful enough to handle even the ripest of body odors.
By infusing Manscaped Crop Cleanser Hair & Body Wash with natural hydrators, soothing aloe, and refreshing sea salt, I combat high exertion stink and sweaty ball syndrome all day. Keeps me smelling fresh for a full 24 hours!
Open your eyes and keep the little guys deodorized!
Ball deodorizing is a crucial step that many guys miss…
Talcum powder won’t do the job. I’ve tried it, and what a mess! I shook that talcum powder on the boys before a run, hoping for smooth dry relief from chafing. Let me tell you that mixing talcum powder with sweat makes a pasty mess in your pants. Yuck!
It’s an antiperspirant and a moisturizer with anti-bacterial, anti-chafing properties. And the best part is its liquid talcum gel – no powder!
Slap some on, and you’ll be ready for anything! Guaranteed all-day dryness and friction control. No more pasty pants! Stop sweating your balls off!
Pamper the boys as they deserve!
Ever get that less than fresh feeling ‘down there’? Invigorate the whole nine yards with Manscaped Crop Reviver. I found that a quick spritz a few times during the day and all bets are off. I’m ready for any SNAFU that comes my way.
This ‘on the go’ spray-on body toner contains aloe & witch hazel extracts for anti-inflammatory, anti-burn protection. The pH levels are optimum for keeping my balls feeling crisp and fresh.
This 5-piece nail kit is made to handle the most demanding aspects of men’s nail care. Each piece is fabricated of tempered stainless steel, is corrosion resistant, and has a classy matte satin finish. Comes with a masculine carrying case to keep all the tools organized and accessible.
This nail kit is not your mother’s nail kit.
It comes with safety scissors for trimming stray, unwanted hairs such as nose hairs or the ol’ pube patch, high-quality tweezers to eliminate your unibrow, nail clippers, nail file, and lastly, an ear pick.
Just one word of advice, don’t pick too deep!
The Magic Mat has kept me from getting divorced.
Arguments about the mess in the bathroom after manscaping are a thing of the past.
The Magic Mat disposable shaving mat keeps all the trimmings together for easy cleanup.
The Magic Mat doubles as entertaining reading.
CAUTION: Read the mats either before or after you trim. Your focus should be on your man parts.
I love this high-quality travel bag, designed to store and manage all my manscaping tools and other “man care” products.
The Shed travel bag features a Grab ‘n’ Go handle, reinforced corners, and is, of course, water resistant.
The SHED travel bag looks classy and is small enough to fit in my carry-on but also has extra room to toss in a toothbrush and other toiletries.
The perfect RON kit (Remain Over-Night) for all your personal hygiene needs.
Additional Manscaping Zones
Statistics signify that a moderate amount of manscaping is compatible with current social norms. Gone are the days when men went au naturel. Read it and weep Grizzly Adams!
Growing facial hair has been a common trend for quite a while now, but excessive body hair has NOT. It’s time to rethink that all-natural look you’ve been sporting.
An independent study reported by WFLA – Tampa Bay Channel 8 News says 80% of women think men should manscape below the belt.
Manscaping your Man Muff is one thing, but what about the other hairy body parts? There is no right or wrong answer. Everyone has a pruning preference.
The colossal question you are probably asking is how much pruning is appropriate?
The range is anywhere between a wooly bear gone rogue or shaving everything off, for a smooth aerodynamic baby seal feel. I find somewhere in between works best for me.
Remember that there is a purpose to pubic hair. Primarily the point is to trap odors and other bacteria. Guess what? You get to carry that trapped bacteria around with you all day!
Heed my advice, don’t forget to use The Crop Cleanser and keep that bacteria off!
Reducing the volume of body hair is one way to handle the problem. Personal hygiene, a little soap and water, and deodorant can also do the trick. Thank god for MANSCAPED for giving us all the tools necessary.
In addition to smelling bad, body hair can also be bulky, hot, and damp. An excellent place to start is merely trimming down some of the bulk. (insert TRIMMER link)
You will find your clothes fitting better, less hot sticky mess, and overall, improved comfort.
Chest and Back
The most common areas guys want to reduce the wool is their chest and back. Too much hair can be like wearing a sweater under your clothes
We are not talking about manscaping a mankini, i.e., chest hair shaved in the shape of a bikini. Not even an Austin Powers’ heart-shaped chest pelt.
Unless your body hair grows like a weed, you should be able to get away with doing this only once a week or so.
Some say ANY amount of back hair or shoulder hair is unacceptable. To be sure, having hair sprout out of your shirt collar, front OR back, is absolutely taboo.
Trimming the hair to under ½ an inch will give you less swell under your clothing, will be cooler, and more manageable all around. Remember to shape your neckline low enough that hair sprouts don’t show.
Don’t forget to use the MAGIC MAT, otherwise your significant other might blow a gasket.
Armpit hair does not need to be long enough to braid to be masculine.
Using the trimmer with a guard, perhaps a #3, in this areas will cut back on wetness and odors.
A nice side benefit is that deodorant won’t clump in short trimmed hair as it often does in long untrimmed armpit hair. I know I feel more comfortable in a tank top after trimming back the armpit shrubs.
Legs and Butt Cheeks
Most men are averse to shaving their legs. Unless you are a swimmer and are going for that streamlined look, a little hair on your legs feels more masculine.
Taking down the bulk with the trimmer will leave you with enough leg hair to be manly, but not so smooth that you would look great in a pair of high heels.
If your butt cheeks are exceptionally hairy, feel free to run the lawn mower over that territory; however, I highly recommend you use The PLOW sparingly on the cheeks or you’ll be itching all day.
Tame your inner sasquatch and leave just enough leg hair to walk like a man!
Hairy Hobbit Feet
Hobbits are known to have exceptionally hair feet. Unless you are a Hobbit, hairy feet have to go. Using the Manscaping trimmer on your feet will bring the hair volume into acceptable levels for humans.
Now for the down and dirty – let’s discuss the Treasure Trail.
A treasure trail is the strip of hair that grows under the belly button down into the nether region, a path leading to the promised land, the home of unknown mysterious treasures!
If you’re a guy who is moderately hairy everywhere else, you don’t want to take this down too much, or it looks unnatural and obvious.
On the other hand, if you are trimming down the bulk everywhere else, it’s probably best if you taper this area up a little bit too.
Remember that this little strip of hair should be a TRAIL – not an Interstate!
It should be narrow and fade on the sides. It should not have a hard straight line as if trimmed with a razor. I prefer to leave the center of the “trail” a little bit longer giving it a more natural appearance but still cut short enough to keep it low profile.
Using a trimmer instead of a razor will keep you from getting little red bumps, ingrown hairs, or looking too sculpted.
Simply adjust the trimmer and guard so you can feather from the happy trail off to the sides.
EXTRA TIP: I like to leave a few inches of trail above my navel for a more natural appearance.
There you have it, folks. These tools and tips are just a few manscaping ideas for the beginning manscaper.
The MANSCAPED Perfect Package is the perfect combination of tools to set you down the path of grooming yourself.
