Upright Go Posture Trainer

Positive thinking is unlikely to do much for fixing your horrendous posture, most notably that screen slouch you’ve been unable to shed for probably decades. A bit of consistent and controlled nagging, on the other hand, just might. The Upright Go Posture Trainer ($69) tracks and aids you in correcting it by sticking to your upper back using reusable double-sided soft stickers, each good for about two or three weeks…

Hudsalve

Perhaps we’re getting old, but lip balms have become a mainstay component of our everyday carries. Regardless, we can’t help but feel a little self conscious when we’re using anything that comes from a lipstick-shaped tube, and so Hudsalve is the perfect stand-in. Good enough for Swedish military use, Hudsalve is dependable skin protection in a rugged-looking drab green tube that works just as well on lips as it does…

Vincent Bartender’s Hand Salve

You don’t need to work a bar to appreciate Vincent Bartender’s Hand Salve. This waterproof moisturizer protects your hands throughout the day lasting up to four hours per application — or through several hand washings. Bartenders and others working in the kitchen will particularly appreciate the fact that it’s non-greasy, making handling wet tools or glasses less precarious, and since it’s unscented it won’t impart handled foods or drinks with…

Pacific Shaving Co. Single-Use Shaving Cream Minis

Lets face it: individual pod formats of products like dishwasher soap and laundry detergent are here to stay. So may as well embrace Pacific Shaving Co’s Single-Use Shaving Cream Minis. While they force you to use a preselected amount of product rather than winging it yourself from a traditional can of shaving cream, these water-soluble pods — which dissolve in your hands with a bit of water and friction — are more likely to…

Hone Type 15 Razor

Overbuilt but definitely not over-designed, Hone’s Type 15 Razor is a minimalist’s dream. All three main parts are CNC machined of either lightweight aluminum or heftier brass, the former in either a classic silver or black anodized finish for longevity. Models of both metals are nicely balanced and are so precisely cut they almost look as if they were sculpted from the same one piece. The aluminum one comes either with a standard…

Big Red No.88 Beard Combs

Forget plastic. Big Red’s No.88 Beard Combs are made of stainless steel that’s sandblasted on its faces and polished, on its edges, to a shiny mirror-like finish. The No.88 Lite is made of nothing but stainless steel, though the two models shown both feature Rosewood scales as their handles, differing only in width of tooth pattern to accommodate either thicker or finer beard hair — and to bring them some much-needed order….

Whistler Wash Co Wash & Shampoo

Unless you’re a chemist, there are too many ingredients in most skincare products to keep track of. For that reason Whistler Wash Co subs in high-performing natural alternatives extracted from eucalyptus, baobab, cucumber, juniper, and sea kelp, amongst others, to clean, hydrate, and repair skin in their washes, shampoos, and face & body soap bars. The wash also produces a cooling sensation post-shower and both smell like a mix of campfire and…

Shea butter provides lasting hydration without much unwanted sheen while an sun protection to SPF 15 shields your lips from the sun.

Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer

First they made vacuums. Then hand dryers, bladeless fans, and air purifiers. So in a way the advent of the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer is barely surprising considering the company specializes in moving air powerfully. A 13-blade propeller within the handle is spun at up to 110,000 rpm and sits on a rubber mount, reducing vibrations and producing just one inaudible frequency to make the hairdryer far quieter than all others….
