Listen up, ladies (and gents, but these gifts are going to be for you, so maybe you shouldn’t be here – to keep them a surprise). You know that annoyance you feel after gallivanting around town or online just to stick with stereotypical men’s gifts of BBQ stuff and socks? While we’re appreciative of everything you get us, we figured it was time to crack the code of gifting for men to make things way easier, less stressful, and more fun for both of us, no matter the occasion.

Gift Ideas for Guy Friends, Boyfriends, and Husbands #6: You Didn’t Think We’d Leave the MOX Super Set Out, Did You?
Face care tops our list of good gift ideas for guy friends, boyfriends, and husbands because it’s revolutionary (we aren’t just being dramatic, it really is), especially the MOX Super Set. See?:
Step 1. Cleanse: The Invigorating Peppermint Cleanser will have the guy in your life ready to hit the ground running with vigor (and attractiveness) after he experiences the cold, ice-bath-for-your-face freshness it’ll leave him with. Our formulator – Pharmacist Ben Fuchs, Cosmetic Chemist – says, “Cleansing is the harshest thing people do to their skin. This is because dirt and natural skin oils are in the same place.”
“To get rid of dirt, you have to get rid of natural skin oils. The challenge with a cleanser is to create a formulation that cleans the skin without disturbing these oils.” The reason why MOX is superior for giving men’s skin a strength boost is because it’s formulated with skin-quenching ingredients like Peppermint Oil and Lipids. Plus, it makes a killer shaving cream
Step 2. Serum: With MOX, all it takes is two to three steps to have a full face care routine with real benefits. The second step – the MOX Multi Vitamin Serum – is jam-packed with Squalane and five essential skincare vitamins: A, E, C, D, and K. Not to mention the fact that the Multi Nutrient Serum is filled with 20 to 40 times more nutrients than a traditional serum.
One of the things pharmacists understand is the power of nutrients as medicinal and therapeutic compounds. Pharmacist Ben mentions, “We see things like vitamin C as medicine. Since the skin is turning over at a faster rate than any other tissue in the body, it’s very receptive to nutrition.” So basically – the serum is only formulated with strong stuff that’s good for men
Step 3. Lock It In: If you ask Simon Rex, our co-founder and big Hollywood star, which step in his face care routine is his favorite, he’ll say the Electrolyte Hydrating Spray; it’s a potent mineral hydrator that helps invigorate and hydrate for healthy skin that looks and feels its strongest. This means that it works cell-deep, like all MOX products, to deliver nutritiously beneficial vitamins and nutrients in each spray.
Pharmacist Ben explains, “It’s formulated with plant-derived ionic minerals (AKA electrolytes), which provide hydrating and nutritive properties and enhance the skin penetration of other MOX products used with it. A preservative-free formula, it features dermal health-enhancing amino acids as well as hyaluronic acid and lactate to keep the skin soft and moisturized.”
