August 2022


Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. Even seemingly low-maintenance grooms-to-be should stock up on the right products that will leave you wedding-photo ready. These six locally made products, from a refreshing hard-milled soap to luxury shaving tools, are sure to leave gents clean, fresh-faced, and ready for not only the big event but happily ever after. 

Beard Butter

Beards come in all shapes and styles, and Soulita’s Beard Butter with raw cocoa butter provides  extra  hold without added stiffness. In addition, it keeps flyaways and frizz in-check while not weighing hair down. Did we mention no dyes, organic, vegan, and
eco-friendly? Find at Soulita, Providence 

Beard Oil 

Keep your whiskers looking and smelling good with Bob’s Big Beard Oil, which contains a mix of sweet almond, grapeseed and argan oils, and nourishing vitamin E. A few drops keeps scruff soft while moisturizing skin underneath. Available in Cliff Walk, Smooth Sailing, and Summer Mountain. Find at Newport Seafoam Trading, Newport

Close Shave 

Skip the barber appointment and get an ultra-smooth shave in the comfort of your own home with a restored vintage or new razor from Foster-based Griffith Shaving Goods. All razors arrive  in shave-ready condition and start at $89 depending on the type of blade and handle. Shop online at

Face Cream

Give skin extra  TLC with this new face cream specifically formulated for men. Just a dab of Bro Hydraglow Facial Moisturizer addresses fine lines and wrinkles, pore size, and in-grown hairs thanks to vitamin C, gentle alpha hydroxy acids, and salicylic acid from white willow tree bark. Find at
The Peyton Co., Warren

No matter the venue, outdoorsy grooms will love the fresh scent of Lightfoot’s Pine Soap. Made in Rhode Island, this hand-milled, all-natural soap evokes walking through a pine grove and keeps skin moisturized all day. Bonus: it lasts in your soap dish without dissolving.
