Feel Good Friday: Mister Beardwash

Mister Beardwash loves anyone or thing with whiskers. Case in point, with the purchase of every bottle of their wash and/or conditioner made specifically to clean beards and mustaches, you’re in fact donating to the North Shore Animal League of America, the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization.

What’s more beard warming than that? Wait, why would anyone want to buy a beard wash in the first place? Don’t regular shampoos or face cleansers work on your face hair too? Well, yeah, they won’t break your beard or anything, but also, they’re not really strong enough to tackle the thicker, coarser hair that grows out of your face. And more, the skin on your chin is different than what’s on your scalp, so if you’re being a perfectionist about caring for your beard, you also want to nourish your below the beard area correctly too.

A good beard wash, like Mister Beardwash, is formulated with this in mind, using beard and face friendly ingredients like acne fighting willow bark extract, moisturizing hibiscus, cotton and oat extracts and nourishing, soothing green tea. They’ll leave your beard feeling that much softer and the skin beneath clean and acne free. And if you have beard dandruff problems, you might want to give their deep conditioner a try. It eats flakes for breakfast. Just like you.

Ok, so some of these beard products can come off as just a little overboard (Head and Shoulders or Selsun blue also work on beard dandruff) and true, you don’t absolutely need a specific beard cleansing or conditioning product in the tub in say, the same way a dog needs one, but if buying one helps nourish our beard better than regular shampoo, and keep man’s best friend happily panting away, well then, we say go for it.

$16 for 8 oz

Remote close-up watching TV

They don't make 'em like they used to. Older generations often harp on the inadequacies of modern filmmaking, from an overreliance on special effects to Hollywood's capitalist-driven quest to make seven sequels to every original movie. Whatever the reasoning is for hating 21st-century cinema, people who prefer old pictures have plenty of options when they tune in to streaming services like Netflix.

With a rotating selection of films that changes monthly, subscribers should always look for what's leaving and what's entering the service when logging into Netflix. For folks more interested in the glory of the 20th century, we have plenty of pre-2000 movies to pick from right here!

Ryan Gosling as Ken in Barbie

Few actors have had more fascinating careers in the 21st century than Ryan Gosling. Since emerging as an A-list star, Gosling has found a way to inhabit roles in broad comedies, serious dramas, and almost everything in between while maintaining a remarkably consistent persona. Gosling is a great actor, but he's also someone who knows where and when to push himself and when he should rely on the charms that come with his insanely good looks. He's younger than movie stars like Brad Pitt or George Clooney, but he definitely exists in the same mold. These are the best Ryan Gosling movies so far.

McConaughey in Mud

Matthew McConaughey has had quite an interesting career, to say the least. His filmography really is a story in three parts. When he first started out in the 1990s, McConaughey often played supporting roles in thoughtful dramas, bringing out the best in his co-stars. As he aged into the 2000s, Hollywood pinned him as a rom-com lead, and we can't ignore why. The man is pure swag and sex appeal, with a Texas accent that melts hearts and makes you want to go to the theater more than one time.

His third act was at the beginning of the 2010s when he became a true blockbuster, Academy Award-worthy star. Accolades for prestige biopics, fascinating sci-fi films, and more were very deserving and shined a light on a diverse and well-earned career. Now, McConaughey has taken a step back from acting for the most part, instead putting his focus on politics and other issues. Here are the 10 best Matthew McConaughey movies so far.
