Oars&Alps (1 of 3)

In the last few years I’ve started to pay a lot more attention to my skin. Moisturizing, the type of face wash that I’m using, it’s all important to me. I do this so that I can keep my skin healthy and youthful, because whether I like it or not, I’m starting to get wrinkly! As guys, we’re lucky because there’s a certain level of sophistication with wrinkles, but that doesn’t mean you should want them to come up sooner than necessary.

Oars + Alps is a brand I discovered and couldn’t help myself from picking up their entire line. It’s super affordable ($44 for all three products), which is one thing I cannot say about every brand in the skincare game.

What originally drew me to Oars + Alps was the charcoal face stick. It’s an exfoliator, so it brushes away dead skin, leaving you looking like a baby’s bottom. It’s in a solid form so there’s no leaking or worry of it getting on your stuff when you travel Also, because it’s in solid form, it’s only 1 ounce so you can travel with it in your carry on no problem!

They also have a 2-in-1 moisturizer, which ultimately means purchasing fewer products, therefore more money in your pocket! It works great all over the face and neck as well as under the eyes (which is a big place you should all be moisturizing). It’s not super heavy so it doesn’t clog the pores.

Another big thing for me lately has been finding an all natural deodorant that actually works. A lot of the bigger name deodorants use aluminum to fight odor, which is really harmful to your body, leading to things like breast cancer and alzheimer’s. Oars + Alps deodorant stick works really well for me. It’s all natural and aluminum free, but it has a great scent that isn’t overpowering and fake like a lot of other deodorants I’ve used.

The fact that all of their products are animal cruelty free (huge necessity for me), as well as the way they engineered their products specifically to active guys was another big selling point. Between running around to meetings, shooting photos and working from random coffee shops. I’m always on the go, so having a simple routine that’s effective was paramount. The ease of the face stick to clean my face and the effectiveness of the 2-in-1 moisturizer and eye cream are amazing. It’s totally easy to keep yourself feeling and looking good with just two products, which I love.

I hope by now you guys know that I’m not in the market of pushing products that I don’t believe in. I genuinely think this brand is something you should check out whether you’re just starting to want to take care of your skin or you’ve been aware of it for years.

Check out Oars + Alps and tell them Parker sent you when you make your order!
