We are here to tell you what all the hype is with Billy Jealousy products. The name may not say it all because it sounds mysterious, but let me tell you the products are certainly memorable with straight forward results. The company started out with the aspiration of finding the perfect shaving products. The founder Pat Parsi, who we got to sit down with, told us of his constant struggle with finding the right shaving products. He and his wife started the company in 2004, since then Billy Jealousy has become a highly recognized brand with large department stores, online retailers, men’s magazines, and even George Clooney! While we didn’t get to meet the celebs that use these products, we definitely found out why they are so popular. The brand offers not just shaving products but face and body care items that are skin and budget friendly.
The #1 best seller for Billy Jealousy has been theBilly Jealousy Hydroplane Shave Cream.This shave cream won the best shave cream in 2007 by Esquire magazine and we know why. Men and ladies alike will love this rich cream for shaving because it will prevent razor bumps, nicks, and those pesky ingrown hairs. It has a nice light cool citrus scent that is a universal crowd pleaser. It is also an excellent buy, as one 8 oz tube can last you for 6 months. For maximum results you will want to apply theBilly Jealousy Hot Towel Pre-Shave Treatmentand combine it with an equal amount of the hydroplane shave. This will soften the hair follicles to make your shave effortless. For men and women who have hair that is less coarse, try the Billy Jealousy Whipped Cream.This gives you more of a lather as opposed to using a regular shaving cream. For the finale you will want to put on the Billy Jealousy Shaved Ice After Shave Balm.This treatment also works great for sunburn skin and post waxing because of its soothing benefits.
Aside from award winning shave products Bill Jealousy offers excellent face treatments and body products as well. One product that is offered called Billy Jealousy Sucker Punch Face Scrubis a must try.This product is 100% organic and can be used a few times per week for an excellent exfoliation. You can use this product before you shave and the mixture of volcanic black sand, walnut shell, and alumina will lift away dead skin cells and dirt. This product also contains antioxidants to protect your skin and improve elasticity. While were talking anti aging we should mention Billy Jealousy About Face Anti-Aging Serum.This serum contains glycolic acid to help with fine lines and skin discoloration. It also has immune system boosting Echinacea extract, and aloe to moisturize and restore the pH levels in your skin. This serum is priced very well for an anti aging serum at only $48.00 for a 1 oz bottle.
A great body wash to try would be the Billy Jealousy Ocean Front Body Wash.We loved the smell of this one. It had an intoxicating citrus and bergamot smell that left your skin smelling clean and fresh. This body wash also contains salicylic acid, so it works great for people who struggle with break outs on the body area. It’s also beneficial for men who want soft body hair because it contains panthenol to strengthen and condition hair.
These are just a few samples of the line that you may like. We enjoyed all of the products for the refreshing scents and the entertaining names. Billy Jealousy may be a fun and trendy line, but it looks like it is here to stay.
In recent years men have increasingly become major consumers of skin care products that provide the same anti-aging and personal care features as mainstream women’s skin care and cosmeceuticals. Men know that shaving, aging, and environmental stressed can have a significant effect on their skin, and many are choosing to actively seek skin care solutions.
Made popular in upscale spa’s and salons, Yonka has a full range of men’s skin care from cleansers to self-tanners and everything in-between.
Starting with the basic regimen, cleansing with the Yonka for Men Foam Gel both in the morning and in the evening will leave the skin hydrated and purified. This non-drying botanical based gel cleanser is great for men because most prefer a gel consistency than lathers up and rinses clean for their daily cleansing needs versus a cream based cleanser that can feel heavy on the skin even after rinsing.
After cleansing with the foam gel, shaving with the Yonka for Men Barber Shave is made easy even for the toughest beard on the most sensitive skin. This product is a multi-tasker that provides not only a close and clean shave with reduced irritation, cuts, and nicks but it also acts as a skin care product leaving your skin soft and smooth.
After shaving with the Barber Shave, the Yonka for Men Lotion YK is an alcohol-free skin energizer that prepares your skin for additional product if desired and also improves the effectiveness of the products already used during cleansing and shaving.
For optimal skin care, we suggest an exfoliating product to be used 1-3 times weekly. The Yonka for Men Foam Scrub is a fantastic product that removes dead skin cells which helps improve cell turnover, it tightens pores, rids ingrown hairs and black heads and leaves your skin deeply cleansed. This product is to be used after shaving and before a skin cream and is highly effective in prepping your skin for the Yonka for Men Masque which will further detoxify your skin and brighten your complexion while balancing the epidermis.
For added treatment benefits, the Yonka for Men Nutri Moist provides you with vitamin rich anti-oxidants to help protect your skin from environmental stress while the Age Defense will help combat the signs of aging. You can use one or both as need to give you softer, smoother, healthier skin. Top off your regimen with the Under Eye Gel both morning and evening to complete your skin care routine.
The shave cream contains shea butter and glycerin which help make the skin smooth and ready for a close shave that glides across this skin leaving behind fewer nicks and cuts. The after shave balm is a formulation that absorbs quickly into the skin and soothes the irritation, redness, tightness, and razor burn associated with a clean close shave.

During the holiday season we get a lot of inquiries about gifts for men. I’ve found that the Art of Shaving has wonderful gifts that any man would be delighted to receive.
The Art Of Shaving Ingrown Hair Kit is excellent for that man that struggles with ingrown facial hair, razor bumps, or who has a that extra thick hair that can be a challenge to get clean. This set is perfect for gifting and it includes an educational DVD that features information on getting the optimal shave results and the causes, prevention and relief of ingrown hairs.
The next four gifts are the Art Of Shaving perfect shave kits in various scents. These sell out very quickly during the holiday season so I would recommend purchasing your gifts very soon.
The Art of Shaving Full Size Kit Unscented contains pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after shave balm and the badger shaving brush. Because there is no scent, this can be a great gift for even the most picky man on your gift list.
The Art of Shaving Full Size Kit Sandalwood contains the same as the unscented (pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after shave balm and the badger shaving brush). The scent in this kit is my absolute favorite and it is really popular with many women (and men) because it has a woodsy smell that is fresh and masculine. The scent is Aromatherapy-based 100% pure essential oil. If you are on the fence, read the product reviews.
The Art of Shaving Full Size Kit Lavender contains the pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after shave balm, and the badger shaving brush and uses the 100% essential oil, lavender. For those of you who know lavender, the smell isn’t really a masculine scent but it’s also not a feminine either. It’s really a neutral, clean smalling scent.
The Art Of Shaving Full Size Kit Lemon contains the same items as the other shaving kits, but it smells like lemons. Some like the fresh scent of lemon on seasonal basis and the more traditional scents for year round or on special occasions.
Don’t forget, at SkinStore.com we have a large selection of men’s products to choose from. Stop by when you get a chance and you can pick up the perfect gift for both you and the man on your holiday shopping list!

When I began researching to write this article I searched online for references of men getting pedicures. The first site talked about pedicures being more masculine than most people think; ironically the website was adorned with dainty little sunflowers and a picture of women’s painted toe nails! There were several other sites in various different glamour and beauty websites talking about how men are slowly beginning to take better care of their feet. There were also numerous articles in women’s magazines giving pointers on how to give their man a pedicure at home. However there was not much from a man’s perspective for men.
Being a licensed manicurist and esthetician I wanted to give guys out there a heads up on what to look for in choosing who does your pedicure, and what products we have in case you want to do a pedicure at home. Many times women have much more experience getting these services, so guys may be at a loss of knowing what to look for and what to do.
So here are my tips and suggestions on a getting a pedicure at a salon or spa:
Make sure the business is licensed appropriately; make sure the person who does your service is licensed appropriately and displays their license.
Make sure the nail files and foot files are disposable and new. Be wary of metallic grating tools used to file callused skin off your heels!
Make sure all the metal tools (implements) have been freshly sanitized in the blue solution and stored in a clean dry place later.
Make sure your salon/spa has a cleaning journal showing when the last time your foot spa (especially ones with jets) has been cleaned and sanitized. It should be after EVERY use. Old water should be drained, debris filters cleaned, the tub rinsed, scrubbed down and rinsed again, refilled and a hospital grade disinfectant added, jets turned on to circulate the cleaner in the system, cleaner sits for 10-20 minutes, drained and dried. THEN it is ready for the next customer!
If you want to do a home treatment here are some suggestions:
Soak your feet in hot water in a foot tub or home foot spa. Essential oils such as lavender can relax, and eucalyptus or mint can stimulate. I would suggest trying Kerstin Florian Krauter Fub Salt.
After soaking your feet for 10 minutes or so you can use a foot file to file off the rough areas of skin on your feet. I would suggest trying Tweezerman Pedicure Ceramic File.
Next trim and shape your nails using nail clippers and a nail file. Toe nails are best trimmed square with a rounded or softened corner. Use a 3 way nail buffer to smooth out any nail ridges, even out the surface, and buff to shine (if you want.) Tweezerman Men’s Deluxe Grooming Kit is a great kit.
When you’re all done with the soaking, filing and trimming and have dried off your feet, use a foot cream or body butter to moisturize. Massage it into all areas of your feet. Put a little extra on and slip some socks on while the product absorbs! I suggest L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream.
Don’t be afraid to take a little time out to take care of your feet. A good trimming of the nails can make your shoes more comfortable and a great foot massage can alleviate a lot of built up tension, stress and pain. The result will be feet that feel better in your shoes or boots, and look better in those summer sandals! Which ever you decide, salon, day spa or at home, be sure to put your best foot forward!
