This is one for all my guy’s out there, and it’s a massive game changer when it comes to men’s grooming, I’m also going to try to make it a 5 minute read due to the nature of the post, I will say though there is so much coming and I have a lot of things I’m excited to share with you all!

I know I was the last man to find out about Philips OneBlade – and personally I’m a little sad that none of my men didn’t DM me and tell me I happen to know I have 1 or 2 drag queens who follow me – and I know it’s very large within the drag community, although with that thought I’ve never voiced my hate for shaving and getting razor burn easily so that might be my bad so its 50 / 50 blame game.

Anyone of my dudes out there who didn’t know there was a saviour out there, I got you! Every male should know about Philips OneBlade just because it’s one of the best grooming tools I have ever used. Men don’t talk about their skin a lot or really take care of it but they should, most men suffer from sensitive skin but don’t do anything about it when they should be.

OneBlade is waterproof but I wouldn’t recommend bringing it into the shower with you, you can just wash the tip after you are done with it and spray with a alcohol spray to insure the blade is fully clean and ready for your next use.

Trim ➡️ Trim your beard to a precise stubble length. 3 stubble combs included: 1 mm for a tight trim, 3 mm for stubble and 5 mm for long stubble.

Edge ➡️ Create precise edges with the dual-sided blade. You can shave in either direction to get great visibility and see every hair that you’re cutting. It stays comfortable even on sensitive areas, so it’s fast and easy to line up your style in seconds.

Shave ➡️ OneBlade doesn’t shave as close as a traditional blade – so your skin stays comfortable. Go against the grain and shave off any length of hair easily.

Guard ➡️ Attach the skin guard for an extra layer of protection on sensitive areas.

I don’t think that any man would be unhappy with this grooming tool, as a gift or just because you love him or to treat yourself, it’s the ultimate tool and its my first Can’t Live Without ’19 item because I tried even to just shave normally and it was uncomfortable and I got that stupid bumps from the razor it doesn’t matter of there is one blade to 8 blades, it always happens to me from sensitivity.

ZIIP BEAUTY – TAKE BEAUTY INTO YOUR OWN HANDS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

So I’ve got something really cool, I actually got to go to a press event for ZIIP Beauty and ask the creator, Melanie Simon, some questions and find out for myself what the heck makes this go amazing also why they decided to take away the video of the male, mine you I wasn’t a ZIIP user so I only heard echo’s of this video. I got to find out first hand why things are priced the way they are, and why ZIIP Beauty proves to put some electrical esthetician’s out of a job – a lot of celebrities are known to stop by these popular trend spots rather then going under the knife.

First of all, What is ZIIP ➡️ ZIIP is a handheld electrical skincare device. The technology behind ZIIP is ground breaking – tiny, energetic currents are pushed into the skin through positively and negatively discs located on the bottom of the ZIIP. Envision a battery where there is a positive and negative end. The energy runs between the two polarizing ends and into whatever it’s in contact with giving it life; in this case, the skin. With regular use ZIIP will leave your skin, revived, refreshed and lifted.

What is it that you feel people need ZIIP? ➡️ Well, as the aging process kicks in, or acne causing bacteria is a growing concern for you, the skin starts breaking down, due to overly washing your face or due to lack of collagen production. One of the key factors is decreased ATP production – ATP is nicknamed molecular currency because it’s used to produce collagen and elastin in the skin. ZIIP increases ATP by up to 500%

21device-pdp_2x_5ed88f8c-6230-4bfa-af71-f3542b62ed39_2340x
Another mentality ➡️ ZIIP infuses the skin with specific waveforms to create ATP, as a result, the user will produce more ‘youth proteins’ to create more beautiful and healthy skin. Excess ATP can’t be stored in the body, using ZIIP one to three times per week allows the user to create more collagen and elastin, heal tissue, stimulate lymphatic drainage, increase blood circulation and diminish bacteria in the skin.

Check out my previous post where I touched base on ZIIP and the different types of treatments that you sync right to the device from the APP ➡️ RIDE OR DIE PRODUCTS | MAKEANDTHECITY

Compulsive indulgence? ZIIP is proudly made within the USA, where modern technology and beauty intersect. ZIIP has offices in San Francisco Bay area, the epicenter of young tech companies, and LA. ZIIP is available online, Barney’s New York, Violet Grey, Neiman Marcus, Revolve.com, and other retailors. ZIIP sells for over $500.00US.

I have a nose ring, when I use ZIIP I take it out, do I have too?
No you don’t have to take it out if you do not wish to, ZIIP can be used with metal piercings/implants; however, the piercing area should be avoided as much as possible as you may feel a “zinging” sensation if the probe touches anything metal.

What happen to the video that featured a male showing how to use the ZIIP, Why was it changed to a woman?
It’s best to avoid using ZIIP on areas where there is facial hair. The hair acts as a blocker to ZIIP’s electrical currents so we thought it best to change the outline of the Quick Fix video your are speaking of. We recommend using ZIIP on a clean-shaven face, but if you do have a beard and/or mustache, you can adjust any of the electrical treatments to avoid those areas, or use the Quick Fix or VitalEyes electrical treatments, which do not include the lower face and jaw area.

The conductive gel is kind of.. pricey for this day and age and you have to use a lot of it, how long does a bottle last?
2-5 months. We also offer a Silver Treatment for only $50 vs. $150

The PR package received was very beautiful and presented very well, is there a difference between PR send outs and what a consumer will receive?
Absouloutly not.

Well, what do you think? Will you order a ZIIP or save up to get one? I will say the Instant Gratification treatment is my go to before getting ready before I getting ready to out, Quick Fix and, Energize are my night in treatments and every couple days, Total clearing. I am giving this device full run down and putting it to the test, I will say that I’m not to sure that I agree the conductive gel will last five months. I will add updates to this post as they are needed.

GLOSSIER – THE SUPER PACK | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi MUATC,

⬅️SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!
PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

I really do love this time of year, I love it when the weather starts to get so cold that you have to add a couple blankets on your bed at night, or am I think only one who sleeps with my window fully open in the winter? In my last Glossier review (NEW PR LIST ➡️ GLOSSIER COSMETICS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY) I did show off the super pack, what is it is three (3) SAVE YOUR SKIN serums (each sold individually) let me just say, wow x ten (10) these are so amazing and I find this time of year is when you truly need to give you skin care one hundred (100%) Super pure, Super bounce and Super Glow could be just what your skin is needing right now!

Lets take a look ➡️

They’re supplements for your face: potent, fast-absorbing treatment serums packed with vital nutrients to bring your skin the boost it needs today. Because you’re not just a “skin type” your needs change throughout the month, and your product lineup should help you adapt. Some days skin feels dull, like after an all-nighter. Enter: Super Glow. Some days it’s stressed and breaking out – sounds like a job for Super Pure. Super Bounce eases tight, dehydrated skin – think: hangovers, long flights.

⭐⭐⭐SUPER BOUNCE ➡️ The main ingredients that are going to focus on the main issues you’re having when you reach for Super Bounce are, Hyaluronic Acid – Abundantly found in our body, it holds up to 1000x its weight in water to plump skin from the inside out to create that bounce that we all need, a good way to find out if your skin is nice and hydrated is the pinch test, no don’t pinch so that it hurts but pinch the skin and let go, if it snaps back fast – your skin is hydrated and your drinking enough water and Super Bounce is doing its job, also this test is to be done on the top of the hand. Vitamin B5 – Found naturally in mushrooms, avocados and lentils, vitamin B5 helps reveal skin that’s softer and more supple. Part of a well-balanced skincare routine.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ SUPER GLOW ➡️ Help brighten and energize dull, tired skin with Vitamin C [AAP] which helps reduce dark spots and creates smoother, light-reflective skin. We chose a specific type of vitamin C that penetrates deeper into skin and stays stable longer because with this serum a little bit goes a looooong way!  Magnesium PCA which is like a fresh battery for your skin, it energizes tired skin cells. Part of a well-balanced skincare routine.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ SUPER PURE ➡️ To calm breakout-prone skin and redness in the skin Glossier has come up with a kick butt ingredient line up that, guess what, works! Niacinamide is also known as Vitamin B3, it has a powerful soothing action at the source of redness which is a powerful ingredient not utilized as it should be for control of combination skin. Zinc PCA will penetrate pores to help clear out impurities and excess sebum that can cause blemishes. Adding zinc is like giving your skin a calming massage to help it rest, recharge, and let go of built-up agitation. Part of a well-balanced skincare routine.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ all products mention are hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben free, fragrance free, appropriate for all skin types, cruelty free AND vegan.
