5 grooming accessories that should be in every man’s arsenal

Present your best self!



Most men forget that your best self is your greatest asset. It can help you reach your goals if you know how to present yourself well. You just need to groom yourself properly so you look put together.

Gone are the days of raunchy, rugged looks that every man of the previous centuries needs to sport. Men should be as invested in grooming themselves just as much as women religiously do their beauty regimens.

So if you want to level up your looks or if you just want to feel good about yourself, here are a few gadgets and accessories that every man must have in their arsenal.

Face and body hair trimmer

Ever dream of having stubbles that look sexy at glance? A facial styler is what you need and Philips has it. The Norelco OneBlade Face + Body trims, edges, and shaves any length of hair.

If you’re opting for a clean shave or you want to leave a few hairs, it has a set of combs in different lengths to aid you in your grooming sessions. Cut your facial and body hair precisely in the shower, without worrying about nicks and cuts. And oh, its replaceable blade is so durable it can last up to four months.

Trimmer for down under

The longer the hair in your pubic area, the easier for bacteria to cling up due to the build-up of sweat. If the idea of waxing your pubes and hair down under hurts, a trimmer designed for private parts might be the best solution.

Meridian’s The Trimmer is waterproof, rust-resistant, and comes with a replaceable ceramic blade that handles both coarse and curly hair — without the displeasing feeling of tugging and pulling. You can easily trim your hair and look good below the belt.

Facial cleansing brush

Take your skincare to the next level. When you apply your facial cleanser, opt for a cleansing brush like the Foreo Luna for Men. With its T-Sonic pulsations, it helps cleanse gently while removing dead skin cells and unclogs your pores of dirt and oil. It also prepares your skin before you go on a shave, preventing razor burns.

If you’re already addicted to skincare, investing in a facial cleansing brush will do your skin some wonders. Go get that youthful look and a complexion that appears clean, fresh, and energized.

Nose and ear hair trimmer

Wait, what? You never had excess, lengthy hair in your nose and ear? Lucky you. Some people find it annoying that there’s a strand that goes out of the hole. It’s unpleasant to look at, and it’s uncomfortable to have a strand of hair dangling around.

Fret not, MANSCAPED has a nose and ear hair trimmer called Weed Whacker — and it surely gets the job done. It’s designed to be comfortable and effective — equipped with a rotary dual-edge blade that carries the brand’s proprietary SkinSafe technology.

You can easily maneuver the steel cone tip — which is hypoallergenic by the way — to remove your nose and ear hair. Without worry about pulls, nicks, or cuts.

Self-haircut kit

When the quarantine started, a lot of men I know learned how to cut their hair. It took me a while to add cutting my own hair to my skillset, but it’s only possible when you have an exact tool that helps you with it.

Remington’s Shortcut Pro Self-Haircut Kit has everything you need. It has an ergonomic design, it precisely cut your hair and still feels comfortable as you do it, and it’s wider than the usual clippers which make cutting your hair quick. And it comes with different blades so you can personalize your haircut and style it the way you want it to.

Razer now has its own gaming finger sleeves

Keeping your thumbs dry



Razer has somehow transformed into the ruler of gaming lifestyle accessories. After releasing treasure troves of peripherals and devices, the company has slowly branched off into stranger and stranger niches including toasters and SUVs. Razer is now blending peripheral with accessory in its latest product: Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves.

If you haven’t heard of finger sleeves before, think gloves but only for your fingers — or, in this case, finger. The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are meant to be worn on your thumbs. It’s specifically made for mobile gamers.

Made with a mixture of sliver fiber fabric, nylon, and spandex, the sleeves can keep your thumbs dry for serious gaming on your phone. Despite wrapping your thumbs, Razer says that the fabric is still breathable at 0.8 millimeters. They’re also a universal fit for any type of thumb.

Mobile gaming is one of the most popular forms of entertainment especially in Asian countries like the Philippines. Playing on your phone can easily whittle away the time spent in traffic or outdoors. However, since some countries are too warm and humid, sweat can just as easily accumulate and create an unsightly portrait on our otherwise pristine phone screens.

The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are out now and retails for US$ 9.99.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset now sports Midnight Black

Nicely paired with the DualSense controller and your “Midnight Black” PS5



Pulse 3D Wireless

Back in June, Sony announced two additional colorways for its next-generation DualSense controller. Apart from the classic white, the PlayStation 5’s newest controller also received a Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. This time around, they’ve extended the invitation to another PS5 peripheral, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.

Much like the DualSense controller, the headset will also come in Midnight Black. Other than this, everything else is pretty much the same for the Pulse 3D Headset. In essence, it still gives you deeper, more immersive 3D sounds to games that fully take advantage of this. It’s just that now, you have other color options to choose from. Whether or not this also comes in Cosmic Red, Sony has yet to announce that.

It’s worth noting that included in the PS5’s second major update is an equalizer for the 3D Pulse. It adds another layer of control for players. This lets them enjoy the game precisely the way they want to. But if tweaking isn’t your thing, there are also three presets: Standard, Bass Boost, or Shooter.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset in Midnight Black will be available on October 29 for PhP 5,590/ SG$ 149 / MYR 469/ DR1,699,000 / THB3,490 / VND2,699,000.
