DETAILS ED’S PICKS: Products We’re Obsessed With In 2013

by Matthew Taylor Ruggieri on February 4, 2013.


When it comes to superior grooming products, Details associate editor Kristen Dold is an expert. She has picked some of her favorites that are available here at The Motley.

1. Baxter of California
After-Shave Balm

One of the editors in our office told me this is
the best after-shave product he’s ever used.
(Considering the deluge of products that come
across our desks, that’s a strong endorsement.)
With calming ingredients like tea tree oil and
aloe, it’s perfect for daily shavers or anyone with
sensitive skin.

$18.00 / 4oz

2. The Motley +
The Spare Room Gin
Tonic Bath Salts

Like my favorite drink, these salts are ideal for
unwinding a busy mind. Soak in a warm bath
with a couple of scoops to soothe over any
muscle aches. It’s my go-to after a gut-crushing
SoulCycle class.

$14.00 / 4oz

3. Raw Materials
Skin Grit

Remember the first time you used an electric
toothbrush, and it felt as though your teeth hadn’t
been properly cleaned up until that moment? I
had the same euphoric experience with this
scrub. Jojoba beads and crushed walnut shells
soften skin while getting rid of the dead skin
and dirt that can lead to excess oil.

$25.00 / 6.5oz

4. Grant’s Golden
Brand Medium Blend

Super-slick side parts look hot on the runway,
(or with a tux) but day-to-day hair should look a
little more lived in. This water-based pomade
is soft, not greasy, and has a natural sheen so
you’ll still look sharp—just a little less coifed.

$17.00 / 4.5oz

5. Evolution Man
Revitalize Eye Gel

When I asked one of our fashion guys how he
always manages to look fresh (despite frequent
late nights and red eye flights) he said “eye gel.”
I like this one because it’s lightweight but still
works hard to rid puffiness, dark circles,
and fine lines.

$24.00 / 0.5oz
