Grooming brand Baxter might seem like it was born yesterday. It’s that fresh. But this company has been around for a half century. Let that sink in. They’ve been in the grooming game since dudes thought it was acceptable to use a dingy bar of soap to wash from head-to-toe (okay, some till do).

To fete its major milestone, Baxter has assembled its greatest hits and wrangled artist and surfer Tyler Warren to design a box to hold all the goodies. Warren is a bit of a Renaissance man by way of California. In addition to his illustration talents, which are exhibited on the collectible case, he’s a graphic designer, painter, shaper of surfboards, and, of course, world-class surfer. The concentric circular design he’s created exclusively for Baxter is vaguely tribal and also sort of reminiscent of Mr. Zog’s Sex Wax making it perfectly fitting for the brand’s SoCal roots.

In the Best of Baxter Box, you’ll find cult classics like Clay Pomade and Oil-Free Moisturizer, old standbys Daily Protein Shampoo, Daily Face Wash, and deodorant, along with the new favorite Exfoliating Body Bar. And to round out the collection there is a limited-edition candle, created to honor the brand’s charity partnership (a first for them) with Surfrider Foundation, a non-profit that works to protect the world’s oceans and beaches. Its scent nods to the organization with its Pacific Ocean inspired fresh marine notes and the glass is etched with Warren’s illustration, which makes it perfect for stashing stuff when the candle burns down.

And you get all of that goodness for a Benjamin. But another reason to scoop up the set is that ten percent of sales goes towards the Surfrider Foundation’s sea-saving campaign. So you and the beaches will look better for it.

New research shows that building muscle might be the secret weapon you've been missing. A study published in Scientific Reports found that strength training could actually be more effective in reducing signs of aging than cardio, especially for your skin. While the study focused on women, the researchers believe the benefits hold true for men, too.

It can be a headache (literally) to go into a store and sniff through a hundred fragrance options when trying to find the best cologne for men. The coffee beans in fragrance stores are helpful in resetting your nose so all the scents don’t become indistinguishable from one another. Even still, remembering which scent was which with a sales associate hovering over your shoulder can quickly spoil a fun shopping trip. 

Avoiding the hassle of figuring out what your next cologne will be can make it easy to stay stuck to one or two colognes that have been your ride-or-die options for longer than you can remember. Having a signature scent is great–there’s just something endearing about having a loved one say something “smells like you.” But when you realize that your signature scent doesn’t fit every occasion, mood, or season, it’s time for something new.
