Menaji: Make Up for Men
There is nothing wrong with wanting to look your best, so why not wear make-up? It's 2015. If women can do it, so can men. Enter Menaji. Menaji is a brand leader of affordable men's lifestyle products. It was founded in 2000 by Michele Probst, a Nashville-based beauty expert and professional makeup artist, and acquired in 2010 by a group of investors who have partnered with Michele to transform the company into one of the best known men's skincare companies. Naturally, we at Universal Gear needed to get in on the action and we started to offer them in-store an online. Now we know make-up and skincare can be overwhelming, so we created this blog post to help you out. Read on to learn about some of our favorite Menaji products.
Let's start with the basics: Cleansing. Menaji specifically made this formula to handle the higher oil output of men's skin. Skin treatment for men begins with a deep clean to absorb oil, exfoliate dead skin and reduce pore size. Apply a quarter-sized amount all over your face and let sit for 15-20min. Rinse off with warm water and gently dry your skin. Your skin will look tighter and youthful in no-time! Great for over-night spot cleansing, too!
Everyone's had at least one happy-hour last a little longer then planned. When you get into work the next day, it's written all over your face, specifically under your eyes. That's where Menaji's 911 Eye Gel comes in. Apply a small dab under the eyes and it will instantly cool your puffy eyes. Apply daily to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Keep in the fridge for an icy application.
Shaving is something that most men cannot avoid. Even if you only can grow a few whiskers, shaving is inevitable, and can ultimately be damaging to your skin. That's why we've brought in Menaji's After Shave Hydrator. This after shave moisturizes and soothes your chin with antioxidants and botanicals without stinging your face like alcohol-based after shaves. Great for your elbows during the winter time!
Before walking about the door, you want your skin to be looking your best. Sometimes your skin is just extra blotchy or shiny. That's when you bust out your HDPV Anti-Shine Powder. Just gently pat your face with the sponge applicator for light coverage. You skin will look smooth and even all day long and if formulated to withstand the harshest conditions and the higher oil output of men's skin. It even helps heal damaged skin with vitamins C and E. And don't worry - we've got them available in all skin tones!
