Hi, Garrick here founder of Grooming Essentials Blog and if you’ve ever asked yourself…
- How do I start shaving?
- What the heck is manscaping?
- What is a safety razor?
- How do I safely shave my armpits?
Basically any grooming related question, you’ve come to the right place.
Grooming is one of life’s essentials that everybody needs, without a properly groomed body, it’ll be impossible to land a job, close a deal or have a decent social life.
How Grooming Essentials Blog Helps You Get Started in the Right Foot?
Grooming in a way is an art form and to do it right you first need to know the basics. Without it everything falls apart and that’s what I’ll be focusing on in this blog.
Right now I’ll be focusing my efforts on the topic of shaving in general because it is foundational in most men and women’s daily routine. For men it’s shaving their beards, for women it’s mostly their armpits.
I’ll expand as I go along and you can get updates by signing up for our newsletter.
Introducing Grooming Essentials Blog
(For Men, For Women, Reviews)
The Grooming Essentials Blog is all about well, grooming, to be more specific, how to groom yourself with the proper technique so you’ll not only look good, you’ll feel good inside and out.
There are three main sections in this blog – the Men’s section, Women’s section and a Review section.
The Men’s section is where you’ll find grooming tips specifically for men, topics like wet shaving and manscapping. Everything in this section will revolve around grooming topics for men like how to choose the right razor, shaving cream and everything in between.
The Women’s section will focus on the grooming topics for women. We don’t have any written at the moment so please stand by for that.
The Reviews section will focus on the tools that men and women use to groom themselves with. Tools like razors, trimmers, shaving creams, nose pickers, etcetera. We will provide detailed articles on what to expect from these and which ones are the best value for your money.
About Garrick (That’s Me, Just in Case You Want to Know the Man Behind the Blog)
Yes, that’s me on the right. I created this blog to help educate myself in the art of grooming. I’m married to my lovely wife Karen and we have two wonderful kids (the second is on the way).
My idea of grooming before was just taking a bath and brushing my teeth every day, that’s it. I didn’t think much of shaving because I didn’t have a full beard. That’s before I met my wife, now that I’ve been married for 5 years, I have just come to realize the importance of grooming because of her.
She told me to shave because the little facial hair I had didn’t really look good. In short I looked “dirty” and she wouldn’t kiss me if I don’t shave so I had no choice.
But the problem is I didn’t know how to use right technique. Several occasions I have nicked my face because I put too much pressure and I’ve used a clogged Gillette razor – heck, these babies are expensive so I had to get the most out of it.
I didn’t want to experience these nasty cut anymore so I hopped on and did my research. I found out that while Gillette maybe good, these are very expensive and there was a cheaper option – safety razors! So that was the start of it all.
As I did my research, I found myself going through different sites just to get all the techniques so I told myself, why not create a resource that will bring all of these info in one blog. Hence Grooming Essentials was born.
