MËNAJI featured in Barneys for a limited time where men can connect with innovative skincare products firsthand.

MËNAJI, the leading men’s skincare company, and Barneys New York announced that they are coming together for a rotating pop-up series in the Madison Avenue flagship store. The luxury specialty retailer will be featuring innovative brands in skincare, cosmetics and grooming.

“It’s a natural partnership considering MËNAJI is the first men’s skincare line to introduce the best, most cutting-edge products specific to a man’s needs while Barneys is the established luxury retailer known for featuring vanguard indie brands. We’ve been fortunate to be recognized by premium retailers who understand the strides MËNAJI has made in this niche industry,” says Pamela Viglielmo, President of MËNAJI Worldwide.

MËNAJI products will be available on the main floor Men’s space from November 19 to December 2. “Barneys New York customers are always looking for the latest in beauty and skincare,” said Jennifer Miles, Vice President, Divisional Merchandise Manager, Cosmetics, Barneys New York. “The beauty pop-up series at our Madison Avenue flagship give us the opportunity to showcase the newest up-and-coming brands and constantly satisfy the curiosity of our customers.”

Male Grooming Ideas for FALL

male grooming ideas

Now that Labor Day is in our rear view window, many of us are back in perpetual non-stop mode with increased work, family and social demands. Here are a few tips to help transition into the new season while hanging onto your summer……

  1. Check your closet. Do an inventory. Throw out anything you haven’t worn for a year, check your old ties and shirts. Toss any with holes and stains. Donate what no longer works. Pick up some new underwear and socks if needed. Make sure your suits still fit! Check out Bonobos custom suits if you need anything new.
  2. Tune up your diet. Yes the warmer months are great for cold beers and BBQ, but are you drinking enough water? Eating enough healthy protein? If not, add a handful of walnuts, an extra egg or some grilled chicken breast for your lunch meal to keep you feeling full longer. Add lemon, fresh mint or green tea in your water bottle to add a nice natural flavor without sugary calories.
  3. Continue to fight sun damage and aging. Just because you’re not on the beach doesn’t mean you can forget about preventing skin cancer. Coupled with plenty of water, exercise and sleep to fight free radicals and environmental pollution, our Power Hydrator Plus is a convenient 3-in-1 product — it’s a water repellant, tinted moisturizer SPF 30 sunscreen. It comes in three natural skin tone shades, so your skin has a healthy glow. And don’t neglect your lips! Our soothing vitamin enriched Lip Balm Agent also contains an SPF 15 to protect your kisser from skin cancer, without any drying or waxy ingredients.
  4. Update your coverage. If dark circles, redness, acne and scars have you hiding, try our undetectable CAMO Concealer. Made specifically for a man’s oilier skin, it works alone or blends well with a moisturizer. Just be sure to pick a shade slightly darker than the shade on the inside of your arm. Since your skin tone will be changing as the season changes, it’s important to change your concealer too.
  5. Knock out the shine. Now that you’re probably spending more time indoors under the artificial lights of an office or getting less sleep – try our HDPV Anti-Shine Powder to cover up imperfections and even out skin tone. Also available in several natural shades, it works with our other products to help you achieve healthy skin without flaking or dryness. It lasts all day, so you only shine on the inside.
  6. Plan a vacation now. While your work demands increase, so does the stress. So be sure to plan a trip so you can have something to look forward to. Make reservations now before fares rise and your miles expire. Cabo anyone?
  7. Give yourself a break. After a long day at work or on the road, don’t deprive yourself but be moderate with fatty foods, alcohol and sugar. And apply our Anti-Aging Eraser before bed. Enhanced with natural organic peptides and collagen, this product helps to rejuvenate the skin, minimize wrinkles, redness and weather damage, and enhance the skin’s elasticity, strength and texture. It’s great to work hard and play hard, but getting enough sleep and healthy skin care ensures you continue to take care of yourself – inside and out.

Eye Creams: Do Men Really Need Them

Eye Skincare Treatment for Men:  Why Is It Important?

You can be in great shape, eat healthy and even dress like a rock star to look young, but the eyes are really windows to the soul…and they are the first thing to show signs of aging.  

In fact, market data suggests that nearly 20% of men are concerned about their dark under eye circles and sunken eyes. That being said, you should consider the benefits of using an eye skincare treatment. Because the skin around the eyes is often thinner and has fewer sebaceous glands, it is prone to dryness and dehydration. And because our eyes are always moving (from blinking, squinting, smiling, etc), the skin there will naturally accelerate the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

The main issues – wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles

Wrinkles: As with the rest of the body, UV radiation/sunlight is the main culprit of photo damage and aging. Coupled with the constant movement around the eye area, rubbing the eyes due to tiredness, itchiness and allergies will also aggravate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Puffiness: Usually caused by lack of sleep, dehydration, genetics, a diet high in sodium and/or certain health conditions, the skin area around the eyes will get inflamed.

Dark circles: Similar to puffiness, the cause varies and also includes hyper- pigmentation, excessive sun exposure, and genetically thinner skin.

While nighttime eye care usually focuses on repair, morning eye care should be focused on refreshing the eye area along with sun protection — anytime you spend even a short amount of time outside.   

Whether you’re going out after a long day or want to reduce puffiness after a late night, our 911 Eye Gel helps rejuvenate and restore tired eyes, and refreshes like a cooling mini-ice pack when stored in the fridge. Our hypo-allergenic, oil-free formula contains a unique combination of chamomile, aloe, eyebright, allantoin, and wheat protein.  And, a touch of Mica which bounces back light, will literally brighten the eye socket area to look more youthful.

Along with reducing your salt and alcohol intake, eating healthy and getting enough exercise, water and sleep, think of our eye gel as the perfect remedy for puffy eyes, dark circles, allergies, too little sleep (e.g. taking a red-eye), sunburn, or just having a bad day.  Simple to use, it’s easy skincare that solves an appearance problem faced by so many men and women everyday.

Dapper Confidential Highlights MËNAJI’S Power Hydrator Plus

With Winter finally behind us, many look forward to traveling during the upcoming warmer months. So here are a few travel tips plus what’s included in a well-stocked travel dopp kit according to Dapper Confidential who polled male frequent fliers for their must have products and it just so happens MËNAJI made the list!  FYI, most of our products are TSA approved so you can even bring them in your carry on.

Did you know that you should wear sunscreen on the plane? Not only is the sun stronger and more direct at higher altitudes but the indoor lightning can cause faster aging too. Plus on-board air conditioning dries out the skin, so definitely pack a moisturizer. Our Tinted Moisturizer for Men – Power Hydrator Plus is TSA approved and checks all the boxes. It provides SPF 30 protection plus all-day moisture with a natural tint to even out skin tone.

To avoid looking tired after a long flight and minimal sleep, pack our popular 911 Eye Gel which instantly cools the eye area and reduces the appearance of fine lines and puffiness. Also in a TSA approved size, our oil-free natural eye gel refreshes like a mini-ice pack due to the formula’s unique combination of chamomile, aloe, eyebright, allantoin, and wheat protein.

Finally, while the rest of you needs hydration, don’t forget that dry air can cause chapped lips, so check out our Lip Balm Agent which delivers rich botanical moisture and contains an SPF 15. Protect, soothe and nourish your lips with our non-waxy formula enriched with vitamin E, sunflower, macadamia and jojoba oils.

And remember to drink plenty of water, get up and stretch your legs hourly, and go easy on the caffeine and alcohol. Happy travels and enjoy the article!

 

 

To Shine or Not to Shine: MENAJI Answers One of Men’s Biggest Grooming Problems

MENAJI Debuts Newest Product: Liquid Powder Shine Eliminator

MENAJI Advanced Men’s Skincare has solved yet another men’s grooming problem with their newest groundbreaking product, Liquid Powder Shine Eliminator (LPSE). Known best for their undetectable concealers and skin tone pressed powders for men, MENAJI has led the men’s grooming industry with pioneering products since 2000. With their latest product debut, now shiny skin can be completely eliminated from the head, face and body, without any dryness or flaking.

LPSE uses healthy ingredients specifically targeted to minimize redness, inflammation and oil production in men’s skin including Aloe Vera, Green Tea Leaf, Shea Butter, and natural Silica (which naturally absorbs moisture and reflects light). Meant to be used alone or under MËNAJI Urban Camouflage® concealers and HDPV Anti-Shine powders, LPSE absorbs excess oil and knocks out shine to deliver a soft, ultra matte finish without drying the skin.

Other key benefits include:

  • Refines Pores — minimizes the appearance of large pores
  • Long lasting, lightweight, concentrated cream
  • 100% transparent, undetectable finish
  • Perfect for all over useage – face, head, and body
  • Won’t clog pores, cake or create buildup
  • Smoothes appearance of fine lines
  • Can be used as primer under makeup or other products

MENAJI President Pamela Viglielmo says, “While men’s make up and grooming is now all the trend, we’ve never been about following trends – instead, we make products that deliver results and solve men’s skincare issues. We developed LPSE to solve a common appearance problem and help men achieve greater confidence with flawless, sweat free, non-shiny skin.”

Used by professionals on camera — think actors, athletes, on air TV talent — or just regular guys at the office. “It’s simple. When under pressure, Liquid Powder Shine Eliminator helps you appear calm in the face of stress. No need to let them see you sweat!”

Liquid Powder Shine Eliminator comes in a TSA approved 2 oz tube and retails in stores and online for $36. It is sure to become an essential part of every man’s grooming routine.

Customer/Professional Testimonials…

“The liquid powder shine eliminator is my go-to primer before I apply foundation, or concealer on men. So much of my job is about trying to put a stop to that excess shine that can show up on the red carpet or on photo shoots and this product provides such an amazing mattifying base to avoid that.”

-Simone Freund Grooming at EA/MGMT Los Angeles, top groomer to Hollywood actors and recording artists

“Thanks to my friends at MENAJI for their Liquid Powder Shine Eliminator for the SNYTV makeup room. No shiny foreheads here!”

-Alison Raffaele, NYC, groomer to top male athletes and models and newscasters

SAVING FACE: Shaving Hacks for Guys

If you shave your face and/or body, hopefully these simple shaving hacks will make your life easier … and get you out the door feeling and looking great!

#1: Take your time. We know you’re busy and you do this often. But don’t rush. Make sure your razor is rinsed clean, dried and stored in a dry place not in the shower. This consistent practice ensures that the blade remains sharper longer. Make sure your skin is also clean prior to the shave. The use of a gentle non-comedogenic cleanser with antioxidants (ex. vitamins A & C) is recommended.

#2: No water? No problem. Our Clear Shave 3 in 1 Formula lets you shave anywhere, any time — since no water is needed. The clear gel delivers sculpted mustaches, beards and sideburns, clean necklines, head and body hair removal, etc. The easy glide botanical-based formula ensures healthy moisturized skin, eliminating redness and razor burn.  With a natural built-in botanical toner, it also helps prevent in-grown hairs.

#3: If you shave during the shower or right after –  the quicker the shave cream or gel is applied to a moist face, the more effective it will be in preventing razor burn and other potential shaving concerns. “Always remember that the razor is a sharp blade going across your face so, the more protection the better,”  explains Craig the Barber, Hollywood’s top groomer. (Visit him at www.craigthebarber.com.)

If you prefer a cream, Burke Avenue by Craig the Barber (https://www.burkeavenue.co)  – Moisturizing Shave Cream is formulated to use with water.

#4: Exfoliate twice a week.  Exfoliation means gently scrubbing off the top layer of dead skin. For men, exfoliating the cheeks, chin and upper lip is especially important, because it also gets rid of built up dirt, sweat, and ingrown hair. Exfoliating twice a week is a good way to clear pores and avoid the annoying and painful bumps and breakouts associated with shaving daily. But remember, exfoliating too much or too hard can make skin dry.

Our exfoliating Face & Body Scrub is made for men’s skin using a unique blend of organic lime peel oil, jojoba, ginseng, kelp, azulene and aloe.

#5: Spend money on a good razor. The fancy 5-blade razors cost more than the ones you use once and toss but are better quality and last longer. Don’t hit the razor against the edge of the sink as it scratches the blade, simply rinse it.

#5: Use short overlapping strokes with-the-grain.  “This allows for a smooth and close shave while reducing the number of times the razor touches the face; thereby creating the potential for less shaving irritation,” explains Craig the Barber.

#6: If you prefer to use water, be sure to finish your shave with cool water to aid in calming and tightening the skin.  Otherwise, if you use our Clear Shave gel, you’re all set as this formula works three ways — pre-shave, shave, and post shave given its natural properties.

#7: Heal and moisturize. We saved you a step…Multifunctional products like our Power Hydrator aftershave will not only save you time but your face! Made with powerful antioxidants and botanicals, it soothes and moisturizes your skin without the sting of alcohol-based aftershaves which dry out the skin.

#8: Got cuts? Use a styptic pen or even a natural formula lip balm in case of nicks and cuts. Our Lip Balm Agent contains mint and vitamin E to help soothe and cool the skin…along with your lips.

Happy shaving…

Real Men Choose Makeup: MËNAJI Chosen Makeup Brand for Asaf Ganot

MENAJI was recently chosen as the starting line up at the Asaf Ganot show at New York Men’s Fashion Week.

MENAJI, the creators of the best selling, iconic Urban Camouflage® corrective concealer for men, is popular with male celebrities, models and athletes alike. It recently caught the attention of designer Asaf Ganot, who chose the top selling men’s skincare line for his NYFW Men’s show.

Ganot, who credits childhood sports and, later, his college basketball career as the foundation for his style was the highlight of fashion week. His style — sophisticated, yet functional, channels the concept of “destroyed luxury”– pieces are rugged yet refined, luxurious yet understated.

With athletes and fashion going hand-in-hand, it’s no surprise that a bold designer like Ganot who’s high-end clothes appeal to a diverse audience, wanted an understated look. Pamela Viglielmo, President of MËNAJI, says, “MENAJI products capture the essence of Asaf Ganot’s textured, rugged, refined style to represent a man who is comfortable with himself, authentic and real, whether on the street, field or runway. I like to say that MENAJI provides easy to wear men’s makeup, grooming and skincare tools for “real men” to uncover their authentic and best self.”

With NYMFW happening again in July, MENAJI looks forward to working with exciting top talent like Asaf Ganot. As men’s fashion events and exciting runway shows dictate products that work and deliver a natural look, MËNAJI will be there!
