We may have turkey or big, expensive poultry on the brain for the holidays.  Well, so do guys too but it's Movember, Men's Health Month.

If last month, October is Breast Cancer Month (men get breast cancer too) then, November is Men's Health Month.

Plus, this when men get pampered and get taught about their health and hygiene that women normally get.

Go to L'Occitane in Beverly Hills, they're the only L'Occitane boutique with a full-scale barbershop.  Of course, fully-equipped with L'Occitane's men's care lines.,82,1,29709,269395.htm

These 3 sets of men's skincare kits support Dress for Success. $10 of each gift set marked with the Dress for Success logo will be donated to help outfit a woman for her next job interview.*
*$10 from the sale of every gift box will be donated to the charitable organization Dress for Success, up to $120K donation on behalf of L'OCCITANE North America (US & Canada).

 Verdon:   The aquatic scents of the fast-flowing, tumultuous waters of the Verdon river have been harnessed and captured in a range of skincare products with a ultra-fresh, invigorating scent. The Verdon range for men is the first to combine the organic plant extracts of sea-buckthorn, genepi and mint with invigorating spring water from Provence.

Vetyver: "I like to wear the woody and deep scent of Vetyver. It reminds me of my travels through the East, where, through tradition, the Vetyver roots are humidified to release their refreshing fragrance into the air." - Olivier Baussan, founder of L'OCCITANE. Discover spicy and woody Vetyver.

Another full-service barbershop where you can also buy what they used on you; and/or you buy whatever and how much you want to buy.

But, Baxter of California, the skincare, is only in Los Angeles proper boutiques and the Baxter of California barbershop is only on
515 N. La Cienega Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90048

Since the holidays are barring down on you, you can go holiday shopping for him...and her.

Baxter of California started focusing on skincare, since then has build a reputation as skincare so effective that she steals from her husband, brother, and boyfriend.

Why not strike a whole flock of birds and buy stuff that both men and women can share and share alike:

Under Eye Complex $28.00: Infused with caffeine, antioxidant vitamins and seaweed extract, Under Eye Complex reenergizes skin while fighting wrinkles and improving skin texture. Ideal for use day and night.

Oil Free Moisturizer $22.00: Plant-based technology that absorbs quickly to restore the skin’s moisture barrier. Green tea helps protect against free radicals and chamomile helps heal delicate facial skin. Skin is left feeling smooth and refreshed with a shine-free finish.

Night Cream AHA $24.00: Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) gently exfoliates skin to actively remove dead surface cells and smooth the skin's texture. Glycerin and sodium hyaluronate nourish and moisturize. It's sort of like waking up with a brand new face.

Hydro Salve Lip Balm $10.00: Mojito-flavored lip balm with grape seed, coconut and jojoba oils. Natural moisturizers and vitamins soothe dry skin and keep lips soft, hydrated and protected from the elements.

For a true men escape and much-needed hygiene, hide out in an ultimate man cave, Hammer & Nail, the first men-centric pedicure and manicure salon.

Done entirely in mahogany, brass, leather, and flat-screen tvs with fully stocked bar so you can sip bourbon and beer, watching the game, while getting your tender toes neatly and cleanly cleaned, trimmed, and buff..;

And, that is it!

No nail polish. No glued-on motifs. No sugar. No pink. No cream.

Men get a neat and clean straight-up pedicure and manicure in a plush but masculine lair that caters to their needs: watching the game on flat screen tvs, listening to it in headphones while sipping liquor and guzzling cool, foamy beer from a fully-stocked bar.

Hammer & Nail is straight-up, no chaser.

Remember, Movember is about men's health.  If October is about breast cancer then, Movember includes testicle cancer, a very common cancer that strikes young men in the prime of their lives, mainly twenties and early thirties.

"Fixing things" doesn't mean tugging at your crotch or pulling up your socks again. It means finding a solution to this age-old problem, once and for all. It means understanding how men move, combining innovative fabric technologies and tweaking the fit down to the placement of the last stitch. Tom made this task his mission.
That's why he quit his job and started Tommy John. With the support of his wife, Erin, a local tailor and a small team of designers, Tom re-imagined the fit, feel and function of man's most fundamental layers. He built and patented new features from scratch. The result? Shirts that stay tucked, socks that stay up and underwear that keeps everything in place, whichever way a man moves.

 No Adjustment Needed.™


We break with tradition and use innovative materials and proprietary fabric and blends. Like our patented, non-pilling micro modal.


We research and find new ways of adapting to the real, moving human body. Such as our patented undershirt design, guaranteed to never come untucked.


We constantly evolve and improve our products to make our customers more comfortable. Like our Quick Draw® Fly.

Man Up. Check 'Em.
#SupportYourBalls by helping us raise awareness of Testicular Cancer.
Eleven months out of the year Tommy John supports your pair with the most comfortable underwear on the planet. This November, we're providing extra support by educating you about testicular cancer with our limited edition print.

To show solidarity, men grow mustaches and beards to show their support for men's reproductive cancer and health.

At the end of the month, they get really sick and can't wait to shave the whole damn things off.

Too lazy, too busy, and still too under-educated in how to shave efficiently, download the PRIV app, pick the pro who's available in your area and within an hour, the barber appears, fully equipped to shave you properly wherever you are.

If you're a basic bro (the male version of basic bitch), you can go to your local supermarket and drugstore anytime, anywhere, and rely on Neutrogena:

Step 1: Exfoliate with NEUTROGENA® Razor Defense® Daily Face Scrub to actually make your skin less sensitive to shaving and help prevent razor irritation.  The daily facial scrub gently exfoliates skin, without over drying or irritation, while the exclusive formula conditions your skin and actually softens facial hair, so you can get a closer, less irritating shave.

Step 2: Shave with Neutrogena Men® Skin Clearing Shave Cream – the first medicated shave cream from NEUTROGENA® designed to fight razor bumps, reduce ingrown hairs and help prevent breakouts – so nothing is holding you back from smooth, clear skin.

Step 3: Soothe even the most irritated skin with Neutrogena Men® Sensitive Skin Post Shave Balm. Formulated with Pro-Soothe™ Technology, this gentle after-shave balm instantly calms and soothes dry, irritated skin after a close shave, which is perfect for your big shave before – or after – November.

Step 4: Protect with NEUTROGENA® MEN Age Fighter Face Moisturizer SPF 15. Formulated with Retinol – a pure form of Vitamin A – this multitasking lotion help reduce the signs of aging by diminishing the appearance of fine lines in as little as two weeks while keeping your skin soft and smooth.

Now, you'll have to wait until Father's Day for more guy stuff. 

As a cancer survivor, Movember is much more personal.  If you care about your men, you'll care about their health too.
