Ahh the holidays. A time for giving. For freebies. Swag. Frizzle. (not a thing, frizzle? Can it be?) And in that spirit, we’re introducing our very first 12 Days of Giveaways… uh… giveaway. It’s a bit like the 12 Days of Christmas, but with way better gifts. No swarm of calling birds, french hens, and turtle doves that you’ve gotta build a freakin’ aviary just to hold.  No temperamental pear trees to keep alive.  Okay fine, no golden rings either.  But they never stipulate what kind of gold it is anyway. It could be electroplate for all you know.

Sure 10 Lords a’ Leaping might be fun. But realistically, what are you gonna do with these guys after a while? You gotta clothe them, feed them — god knows how much they eat with all that prancing around — and what about the bathroom? That’s a major clog waiting to happen.

No, we’re giving away 12 prizes of verifiably high value and quality, and we’re doing it by partnering with some of the hottest brands in the biz, who make some of the coolest stuff in the world.  That’s right, they’re both hot and cool.  They’re hool.  (Let us know when that term takes off so we can collect our royalties) They offer a pretty wide range of products, but they all share many of our own qualities: cutting-edge technology, natural elements, independent spirit, and modern design, created by hard-working teams dedicated to making a real difference in people’s lives.

Yes, we all aim high.  It’s the only way to get to get to the next level. #levelup

Anyway, back to the giving.  Starting this Saturday, 12/15, we’ll be handing out more than $1000 worth of giveaways, every day, for 12 straight days. Each giveaway will feature items from one of our partners, along with some favorites from our own line of premium  grooming products.  Those partners include Boscia, Lumos, Belkin and Le Mieux, and several of the giveaways are worth well over $200 total! One even includes something on Oprah’s 2018 List of Favorite Things.  All Hail Oprah!

 

 

 

 

 

So, what’s the catch? There is no catch! Okay, there’s sort of a catch. To enter the giveaway on any particular day, you have to:

  • Follow us and our partner brand on Instagram
  • Like the post on ours or our partner’s pages
  • Tag 3 friends in either account’s post
  • Reside in the U.S.
  • Be cool

Fine, we won’t actually check on that last one. But your personal cool factor will rise if you win, we promise. Winners are randomly chosen and will be announced at 12pm PST the following day. Oh and void where prohibited, etc. etc. Also, you can enter as many days as you like.  Now let’s get to those giveaway Days!

  1. Belkin BOOST UP Wireless Charging PadDec. 15 — Hands-free, wire-free, and just plain free if you win this giveaway! Belkin’s charging pad works with iPhones and Android phones, and charges right through your phone case. It was also a 2018 CES Best of Innovations Honoree. Makes sense. We only partner with the best. Retail: $50. Comes with our Hair Hydrator and BioFuse Hair Sculpting Gel.
  2. Thomas James LABixel Sunglasses & Robert SunglassesDec. 16 — You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to get luxury quality and style.

Even crazier that you can get them for free, along with our Cooling Clay Facial Wash & BioNutrient Foaming Face Wash.
  3. Related GarmentsThe Racer Boxers — Dec. 17 — We don’t want to imply that some body parts are more important than others.

Comes with our Active Man Daily Shampoo and Scalp Salvation Massager.
  4. Kana BeautyPurple Rice Hemp Sleeping Mask & LIT Hemp Facial OilDec. 18 — They say Purple Rice was once reserved only for the Chinese Emperor.

Comes with our BioNutrient Foaming Face Wash and Eye & Facial Massager.
  5. BosciaDig Deep Charcoal Skin KitDec. 19 — If we had a sister brand, this would be it. Boscia has roots in Japan and does botanical-based beauty products for women.

And the giveaway includes our HydroBlast Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner and Eye & Facial Massager.
  6. MikolNero Marquina Minimalist Marble Wallet & Carrara White Marble iPhone CaseDec. 20 — Wait, do they mean marble-colored? No brother, we mean this is a wallet and iPhone case made of actual marble.  Then is it like lugging a heavy piece of rock around in your pocket? No! Why would anyone want that? These items are super thin, very light, and hand-cut and sanded down so that no two are alike. They retail for $99 each, so $198 total value. Comes with our Pure Moisture Body Wash and Eye & Facial Massager.
  7. Simple HumanRound Step CanDec. 21 — Step up your bathroom decor with this mean little trash-swallowing machine.  Easy open pedal, resists fingerprints, and closes quietly without that annoying clang.  Also looks a lot classier than any of its peers.  Retail $22.

  8. Boba GuysTile Hoodie & Gift CardDec. 22 — Nobody bobas better than these guys. Boba Guys have been killing it for years in SF, LA & NYC.

  9. TooletriesThe James Toiletry Organizer & The Oliver Shower MirrorDec. 23 — If you like your shower clean and organized (and face it, if even your shower is messy, you might as well give up on ever being truly clean) you’ll want in on this giveaway.

  10. LumosKickstart HelmetDec. 24 — We’re finishing the final 3 days with big ticket items, starting with the world’s first smart bike helmet.

    The Kickstart has a design that will stop you in your tracks, literally! It has hard brake lights, plus turn signals, built right in. Plus it’s weatherproof and works with Apple Watch.
