Niche for Men

I always travel with those pre-moistened wipes, more sexily known as wetnaps. These are super handy, and you never know what kind of mess you’re going to get yourself into when you have a full day of travel ahead of you.

Train from Florence to Milan? Perfect time to grab a coffee and croissant — sad for you when said croissant is SURPRISE apricot jam filled and now your hands are a sticky mess. Unless of course you’re prepared.

When I came across Niche for Men I thought, “hey, this is pretty cool,” because while the idea of a wetnap for your hands is awesome, I’m not really interested in a full body rub down from a cucumber melon smelling wipe. And that’s where Niche for Men comes into play.

The wipes themselves are oversized and beautifully packaged — tuck one or three into your carry on when traveling. Super long haul flight? Grab one from your carry-on and freshen up in the bathroom — perfect! Business class has those nice warm towels, but we can’t always fly business, so these are a nice alternative. Likewise, say you arrive late at your destination and have places to be but no time to get ready. A quick swish of one of these and you’re good to go.

These are built for guys, but they’re formulated with ginseng, aloe vera, and essential oils, so you get a scent that’s more like high end grooming, and less like like the typical “MADE FOR MEN” sweat and flannel afterscent. Which is always a good thing for me, since I’m picky about the scents I wear.

I tried one after the gym and thought it was the perfect pick me up. I felt clean and refreshed, and while there is a light scent to the wipe, I didn’t end up smelling like anything.

A 2 pack is $3.00 on and I think they’re a great thing to have on hand, and stocking up isn’t going to cost you a fortune.

Niche for Men was kind of enough to send me some samples to try, but I contacted them and fell in love with the product of my own free will.
