Saturdays NYC Adds New Staple Products to its Grooming Collection

It’s not even been a decade and Saturdays NYC has basically taken over the world. OK, maybe not the world, but the men’s lifestyle brand has established quite a  presence across the U.S., Australia, and Japan. With the humble beginnings as a surf-and-coffee shop on the cobblestoned Crosby Street in New York’s SoHo neighborhood, Saturdays NYC quickly expanded its streamlined offering into an effortlessly simple, yet impeccably cool collection of shirts, pants, shoes, swim trunks, and more.

So, it only made sense that, when supplying the laissez faire type with their staple wardrobe, they would end up keeping them clean and well-groomed as well.

This week the company announced new additions to its well-loved grooming collection, including soaps and shaving cream. We spoke with co-founders Colin Tunstall and Morgan Collett about what this expansion means to them.

“The products we offer are always an extension of our lives,” Colin tells us. “We’re always on the go and very active, whether it be traveling or getting in a surf session before work. We wanted to create a line of essentials that should be found in any dopp kit. We’ve always carried grooming products in our stores, and as we have grown, it’s time for us to put our own personal perspective on the products that we were carrying.”

“When we create any product, we think with a global mindset,” Morgan adds. “Japan has an extremely strict guideline when it comes to ingredients in products. Several ingredients that you may find in American products are prohibited in Japan. With that in mind, we strive to make our grooming products with the most natural ingredients as possible while offering the same luxury feeling that expensive products provide.”

Saturdays NYC Moisturizing Bar Soap is formulated with shea and mango seed butter to soothe and moisturize dry skin, while the Exfoliating Bar Soap gently cleanses and repairs skin with finely-ground oatmeal kernels and added Vitamin E.

“I love the feeling of my skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated,” Morgan says of using his exfoliating soap everyday in the shower. Colin adds, “I use both the moisturizing and exfoliating soaps everyday during the winter. I used to use our Clay Pomade daily, but have switched to our Grooming Cream now that I’m growing my hair out.”

Soothing, hydrating Shaving Cream rounds out the new additions to the collection. It’s packed with Vitamins A and E and Coconut oil provides a silky surface for a close shave while almond oil works as a natural moisturizer helping combat stress, UV damage, and potential acne flare-ups.

“I have a beard roughly 30 percent of the time, so the other 70 percent I am clean shaven,” Morgan says. “I always use our shave cream in the morning, and sometimes at night before I head out. It’s a perfect lather and soothing shave cream that leaves my face feeling moisturized and smooth.”

Both the soaps and the shave cream feature a light fragrance with notes of sandalwood, grapefruit, lavender, and cedar wood. Colin prefers to keep it close to home when it comes to scents. “We worked with a fragrance house in New York and wanted to come up with a scent that left our customer feeling clean, refreshed and relaxed.”

All Saturdays NYC grooming products are cruelty-free and produced in the U.S. The entire Saturdays NYC grooming range is available at all of their locations internationally, as well as online.

Does beard growth oil work? What you should know

Growing the perfect beard is a lifelong quest for some, and though there are plenty of tips to help you grow a beard, sometimes you can benefit from a little outside intervention. You might have seen adverts for beard growth oil and wondered if that would help you grow a thicker and more lustrous beard, along with various other oils for softening or brushes and other tools to help maintain your skin.

There's a lot of options when it comes to the world of facial hair grooming, because for your beard to look full and well groomed, you need to not only trim it to the right shape but also make sure that both the hair and the skin of your face are well looked after and in good condition. You might also just need to be patient, as it can take some time for facial hair to grow in to the length that you want. The basic advice for growing in a beard that looks great are to give it time and make sure you're taking care of your health -- like getting enough sleep, eating a health diet, and taking exercise. But we all know we're supposed to do those things anyway, and there are some products that can help give your beard a nudge along the way.

How often should you change your razor blades?

It's a hassle and an annoyance, but when it comes to your daily shaving ritual something that you absolutely don't want to skip is changing out your razor blade. Trying to shave with a dull razor is bad for your skin and can cause razor bumps, plus creating a higher likelihood of problems like infections, and it will do a poor job of removing hair, resulting in a patchy shave. If you're not up for trying out a straight razor, then you'll need to get into the habit of regularly swapping out the replaceable blades on your razor or using fresh disposable razors instead. Knowing when to swap out your old blades for new ones will help keep your skin happy and your face looking its best, so our guide can help you work out how often you need to change your razor blades.

How often you should change your razor blades
According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, you should change your razor blades or throw away disposable razors after every five to seven shaves. High-quality razor blades should last five to seven shaves if you take care of them properly and keep them clean. However, cheaper disposable razors may wear out sooner.
Signs it’s time to change your razor blades include skin irritation after shaving, a less close shave, patchy areas or spots missed, skin that still feels rough after, dullness of the blades, feeling hairs are getting pulled instead of cut, and excessive friction of the blades across your skin that it feels like you have to drag it over your skin.
Moreover, a razor that has an accumulation of gunk that can’t be rinsed away should be immediately discarded, as this causes nicks and infections by dragging unevenly across your skin and introducing harbored bacteria into your pores.
