Polo Red Extreme

Posted: March 20, 2017 by The Kentucky Gent

I’ve always been a cologne guy. And I still remember the first couple of colognes that I obsessed over during my high-school days. I wouldn’t leave the house without dousing myself in one scent or the other. These days, I’m not quite as bad, and I typically only spritz on certain occasions. Like a work meeting or a date night.  Speaking of date nights, Zack has never been a big fan of cologne. Wearing it himself or when I wear it. But a few weeks back I set out to change that. I was head over heals for the new Polo Red Extreme from the first day I tried it out. And to my surprise it turned out that he was as well. So much so that I bought him some that very day, and he’s worn it every day since. Turns out that you can teach an old dog new tricks! Zack and I don’t agree on a lot (opposites really do attract), but one thing we do agree upon is a love for coffee. So it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that he would also have an affinity for Polo Red Extreme as well. Seeing as how it’s the…

Old Spice Hair Care

Posted: December 2, 2016 by The Kentucky Gent

It took me some time to get used to my shorter hair, but I’ll be the first to say that even though I was a fan of my long hair I love the ease that came with the chop. My grooming arsenal, once full of smoothing serums and dry shampoos, is slowly but surely being replaced with crèmes, gels, and pomades. Recently, I added two new additions from the Old Spice lineup to my medicine cabinet, and so far, love the results.  The Old Spice Pomade is perfect for those days where I’m keeping things under control and going for a more slicked back, put together look. While the Old Spice Putty is my go-to for normal day-to-day activities for a fun, disheveled look that I’m able to mess with throughout the day. Old Spice has made it easy for guys to look their best without breaking a sweat for years now, with their grooming lineup there’s something out there for everyone, and Amazon is the perfect one-stop shop to stock up on all your Old Spice wants and needs. This content was sponsored by Old Spice but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I hope you enjoy following along! #ad

Style by Boogie

Posted: June 7, 2016 by The Kentucky Gent

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not typically the biggest fan of male focused grooming lines. Mostly because I’ve got a lot of hair and have hard a time finding a product to keep these long locks in check while adding shine and maintaining frizz.

Baxter of California Spring Update

Posted: March 26, 2016 by The Kentucky Gent

Spring cleaning is officially in the air, and I’m not just talking about your house, closet, and car (yes, I very seldom clean my car out, and I suck for that.) I’m also referring to your skincare game. I’ve teamed up with Baxter of California to share how guys (and gals) can and should switch up their skincare regime as the weather shifts. What’s good for your skin in the dryer months is more than likely not going to cut it now that the weather is warming up, the sun is going to be out, and your skin is going to be more oily instead of dry.  Personally, I keep the same face wash throughout the year, but I change up my toner, moisturizer, and any masks that I may use as the weather starts to warm up. Why? Because I have combination oily/dry skin. If the warmer months it leans more towards the oily side, where as in the cooler months I’ve got some dry patches.  The moisture heavy products I use to keep the dry spots at bay would aggravate any/all oily spots I have, and vice versa. It’s important to keep things like this in mind as…
