Hubble: Daily contacts for half the price

Those of you who wear contact lenses know all too well about the nuisance they can be.

Sometimes we get a little lazy and forget to take them out. Other times we’ll wear them a lot longer than we’re supposed to just because. That protein gets caked on, and before you know it, you have an eye infection on the horizon. Ideally, we’d wear daily contact lenses and just chuck them into the garbage, but they’re expensive. They can cost more than a dollar a day, ranging from $480 to $720 annually.

Ben Cogan, a veteran of Harry’s, one of our favorite direct-to-order razor companies, was onto something when he realized two years ago that he either had to spend money or keep on wearing his remaining lenses in order to save money. “I knew there had to be a better, more efficient way to to get lenses, and I knew I wasn’t facing this problem on my own,” said Cogan.

With proper research he realized that there are only four contact lense manufacturers that control 95 percent of the market, while there were over 40 million contact lenses users in the United States, so he took the same approach that Harry’s did, cut out the middleman, and created Hubble, a new brand of disposable daily contact lenses that you can buy for $300 a year, half the price of the average cost of disposable dailies. Still wary of trying them out? They’ll even give you your first box for free to show you just how easy it is.

I tried it myself. All I had to do was enter my prescription and the next day, I had a box of contacts at my door. Not bad at all. I’ve worn them on several occasions, and they’re just as good as the other contact lenses — I won’t out those brands, you know what they are — that cost twice as much. It’s as easy and simple as that. So ditch your biweekly contacts. Ditch your dailies. Save yourself some money and get something nice. Switch to Hubble. We promise you won’t regret it.

Forget the face scrubs made from oatmeal and questionable DIY concoctions. Guys, the secret weapon in your anti-aging arsenal might already be hiding in your weight room.

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.
