Old Spice Unleashes Beard Care Line with NFL Brothers Travis and Jason Kelce

After years of telling men to smell better through hilarious television commercials, Old Spice has finally entered the facial hair grooming world. The only problem with the new Old Spice Beard Collection? That it took the brand so damned long to create it.

Teaming up with two beard-sporting, Ohio-born, NFL-playing brothers, Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles and Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs, Old Spice released the

just in time for guys “looking to grow out their beards for Octobeard (and Novembeard and Decembeard),” said the brand with its quintessentially zany style.

The Kelce brothers aren’t just the faces of the products — they’ve also put their beard philosophy to work by helping Old Spice author a book of poetry focused specifically on beards, entitled The Old Spice Guys’ Grooming Guidance Guide for Guis with Beards & Other Poems. The tome is, as you can imagine, as funny, witty, campy, and slapdash as you’d expect from a company that soared to pop-culture phenomenon after launching the “Smell like a Man, Man” campaign. (Remember that single cut of a man transitioning from a bathroom to a sailboat to riding a horse on a beach?)

Along with the beard poetry, there are also very real and very useful beard grooming products on offer. The full lineup includes a beard wash, beard conditioner, beard balm, and beard oil. Don’t want to purchase them all separately? Save time and money by

How to get rid of those annoying blackheads once and for all
Follow this guide to say bye-bye to blackheads and the steps to keep them from coming back
Man using nose strip

Since many of us are on video conference calls or even video calls with family, there's nothing worse than seeing a blackhead standing sentinel on the plain of your well-groomed face. No matter how good the rest of you looks, the knowledge of that unsightly blemish will ruin your feelings every time you confront your reflection for the rest of the day.

You wake up, look in the mirror, and find yourself doing a double-take—and not for good reasons. You may notice your skin looks rather blah and even gray — isn't hair what goes gray? While all the talk of achieving "radiant skin" often targets women, men may also want a glow, not merely during the summer months. However, dull skin may be standing in the way.

Having dull skin can also be about more than looking your best (though there's no shame if that's your primary pain point). Sometimes, dull skin includes side effects like patchiness, increased sensitivity, itchiness, and flakes. None of these symptoms will make you feel your best, either.
