Move Over Movember

Dear Gentlemen:

You are already mid-way through Movember so far be it for us to divert your stache-sprouting efforts.  In fact, here at Olie Biologique we’re in awe of your presto-change-o manliness. As the end of November IS drawing near, and in case your partner has had enough, or if you’re frustrated with food getting stuck where it shouldn’t or you are just generally concerned about birds building nests, then it may be time to get your lather on.

(Okay, if the ’s’ word that rhymes with ‘saving’ is far too tempting right now, we suggest you do not read any further.)

Olie b’s Pre- and Post-Shaving Tips

More hair means more care, but with the simple addition of skincare oils you can easily and effectively return to a state of hairless bliss.


-Opt to shave after a hot steam shower, or prep the face with lukewarm water to soften and release hair follicles.

-Use your preferred face oil to provide protection between the skin and the blade. Apply several drops to all areas to be shaved including the neck.

-Apply your favorite shave cream.

-To avoid ingrown hairs, shave with the direction of the hairs’ growth. This is typically a downward shave on the face and an upward shave over the neck area.


-Rinse with lukewarm water.

-Pat vs. rub dry.

-Apply face oil to soothe, moisturize and reduce post-shave redness, dryness and breakouts. Opt for all-natural products in your grooming regimen. With no added chemicals, synthetics or fragrance, they’re not only safer, they won’t sting.  We recommend Olie Biologique face oils for their natural, soothing and regenerating properties.  Choose skincare oils with the healing ingredients argan oil and rosehip oil to eliminate redness on contact, and to repair the skin from razor bumps and nicks.

Here’s to the end of Movember, great health and smooth faces!

Mustache gracias!

Fight The Big C in Movember


Women paint the world pink each October to fight breast cancer. November is men’s turn to show their solidarity against prostate cancer by growing a ‘stache to promote a global fundraising campaign — Movember.

No need for buttons or ribbons, bro. Get your mo on! Be a Mo Bro and become a walking, talking billboard for men’s health. Register at www.movember.com then groom, trim and wax your way into the annals of fine moustacherie. Get your grow on with these products from Babalu Miami’s fine apothecary — Anthony Logistics Perfect Shave Kit.

Babalu Miami’s Mo Bro, Mauricio, gets his gro on!

Here’s how it’s done. With the loving support of your significant Mo Sista (or other), Movember Mo Bros raise funds by snagging financial sponsors for their Mo-growing efforts, i.e., donations from The Art of Shaving or your hometown Cuban barber. Or, as in Mauricio Giammattei‘s case, Babalu Miami. We pledge to donate 10% of all online sales of shaving products to his efforts. Click on his link to add your support. (There are real whiskers under that big mo!) At the end of the month, each Mo Bro will celebrate his moustachio-ed mission by attending any of the infamous Movember Gala Partés around the world or by throwing his own Movember bash.

Funds raised in the US are directed to programs run by Movember and their men’s health partners — the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Together, these three non-profit organizations ensure that Movember funds support a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in the areas of awareness, education, survivorship and research in the drive against prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
