View Full Version : Would you go to a cosmetic/shaving store for men?

im doing some research, and was wondering how many men would go to a store specifically designed for their skin care, shaving, and even health needs (i.e. with vitamins designed for men).

so let's hear it.

thank you

I'm the type of guy who rolls his own tobacco and shaves in the shower with hand soap...so I wouldn't be a typical target, but there's my vote for ya.

It'd be a good place for women to pick up gifts for hard-to-buy-for guys (or the stinky ones.)

I would...when I have a guy to buy for.

Sorry, Bravo. Something like this might go over well in Dallas, but it ain't for me.

Nope, too poor to afford that kinda stuff even if I was interested (and I'd have other priorities if I did have money).

I voted with the majority, I wouldn't go there myself - I think this kind of thing would appeal to the, uh, "not-that-there's-anything-wrong-with-that" kind of guy. Actually, I know just the place in Atlanta where this store would fit right in...
Pick your exact location right here:

Sounds real emo............or in the old school speak.........it sounds gay. If it's not the on the shelf at th PX or shoppette, or at Publix, it's to fancy.

Just me thoughts.

Not sure it would fly here...

Sounds pretty cool actually.

vitamins designed for men

We call them 'beer'.

Unlikely, sorry. I use moisturizer after shaving but steal my wife's gunk and get my vitamins from the grocery store.

I wouldn't (I just don't need that much choice), but I bet women would to buy gifts for the guys on their list.

Why would women go into this store?

Sure, they can get stuff just for men - but if they want moisturisers for men, then can buy the 'for men' brand alongside their their own moisturisers, etc at their regular stores.

I'm sure that menswear stores could sell a branded line of 'guy stuff', for example, but what would be the point of trying to limit the store like this?

(PS: I also don't see the point of many successful stores, so don't listen too hard to what I say!)

I probably wouldn't go into this type of store as it does sound a little silly. I'm not even a fan of going to the hairdressers, but give me a few years and that won't be a problem anymore.

Sure, like an advanced barbershop?

I would love to find a store like this.

I'm tired of sniffing around the other places hoping for some 'bone' to be thrown in the way of men's care. So a place where I can find several lines of products specifically for men (which, btw, would have different needs than women!) or just the scraps that I find at regular department stores?

I would also hope that said store would carry a variety from the big name manufacturers and more organic/natural products as well.
