It’s no secret that the western culture of masculinity puts pressure on guys to be over-the-top macho—an attitude which manifests itself in many ways, including cat-calling and a whole bunch of other unpleasant stuff.
Just think about the show Man vs. Food. The name says it all: Adam Richman, the star, doesn’t just have to eat every meal, he has to conquer it.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab blends dark, romantic, and cruelty-free scents for folks who are into all things magickal, pagan, mythological, medieval, Victorian, and horror.
What does that mean? Basically, the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab team uses their 15-plus years of experience in the homeopathy and aromatherapy fields to transform ideas (everything from Neil Gaiman’s Coraline series and medieval love poems) to super-wearable, but still unique, perfumes.
They have a mind-boggling assortment of scents (and massage and bath oils, too!) available for purchase on their website. Read More
I recently came in contact with Beauty Without Cruelty. I was drawn to their array of colorful lipsticks and, of course, the idea of all-natural beauty. I found out their products are 100% vegetarian and 100% natural. The company was actually founded by an animal welfare organization, so you know they're legit. Naturally, their mantra is all in the name. They sent over a few products and I'd like to tell you a little about products like Rosehip and CandyFloss. Read More
I was recently sent some beauty products from a company called FACEFACTS BY Lori. It's a company that specializes in hand-crafted lip products, using all natural and certified organic ingredients.

These specific lipsticks by FACEFACTS are neat because, among other things, there's no animal testing, no certified dyes or lakes, no mineral oil, no petolatum, no lead and they're 100% paraben free.
