Here at OneUpped, we celebrate being a guy and getting messy. Working on a car, hiking through the mountains, hitting the gym – we’re dudes, and we can’t help get dirty sometimes. But if you’re going to play hard, then you have to make sure you’ve got the tools you need to clean up and look your best when you’re done. And today we’re giving you a chance to win a box full of some of the best bathroom products around. Learn how to enter the giveaway at the end of the article!

You only pay for the boxes you decide to try, and shipping and exchanges are always free.
I was lucky enough to try their Steam box, which they describe as “a modern bathroom with a touch of history.” It’s a perfect description because just looking at the products inside, you get an instant sense of luxury with a vintage twist.
The box includes a set of Turkish towels, a tube of Davids natural toothpaste, an Ernest Supplies charcoal bristle and bamboo handle toothbrush, a bottle of Das Boom body lotion, and a Kent & Bond charcoal pine body brick. Not a bad haul. So let’s dive in and look at each of the products featured in the Steam box.
Kent & Bond Charcoal Pine Body Brick
You’ve honestly never tried a body brick like this before. It features base oils that are 100% certified organic and rich in vitamins, as well as natural vegetable glycerin to help maintain your skin’s water balance. It only gets cooler from there; they’re made in small batches and aged for three months, and every bar is hand-cut and pressed.
And the scent, my God the scent! I’m a huge fan of pine and balsam scented… well, anything, really… so this was an instant favorite from the box. Chock full of pine essential oils, it also features pumice to gently exfoliate your skin, and is infused with activated charcoal, which works as a natural cleanser, purging skin of impurities and toxins. Not to mention it lathers up great, and ends up making your shower smell like a pine forest.
Davids Natural Toothpaste and Ernest Supplies Toothbrush
I’m a fan of natural products, so this one-two punch is right up my alley. Davids toothpaste is made from all natural and sustainably harvested ingredients. Not only that, but the packaging itself is environmentally friendly, straight down to the recyclable aluminum metal tube and paperboard. And as an added bonus there’s a wringer included in the box to make sure that you squeeze all the toothpaste out of the tube. Lifesaver, am I right?
And a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush? How cool is that? The bristles are medium-soft which makes for a really comfortable brushing experience, and they’re infused with charcoal which helps fight off bacteria.
Nothing ruins a great shower quicker than drying off with a cheap, scratchy towel. Well rest assured that these bad boys from Bespoke Post ensure you’ll never have that issue again.
Crafted with 100% Turkish cotton – including the fringe – Bespoke Post explains that “the cloth absorbs more, dries faster, and lies flatter (making it much easier to store) than a regular bath towel.” Pretty cool, right? Besides the fact that this towel is crazy soft, and is built to only get softer the more you use it, one of my favorite features is the actual design. They are built to have that vintage bathhouse weave look, but the back side of the towel is rich terry cloth. It’s modern meets retro, and I totally dig it.
Das Boom Industries Body Lotion
Guys, whether you want to admit it or not, we need to moisturize at least once in a while. So if you’re going to do it, do it right with something like this killer lotion from Das Boom. It’s made from plant-based and renewable sources and is lightweight and non-greasy. It’s luck of the draw when it comes to the scent, and you’ll get one of five signature blends; Detroit, West Indies, Bourbon County, Denali, and Kyotohe. I scored the Detroit, and fell in love the second I popped off the top of the bottle.
It’s masculine, musky, and smoky – exactly what I want out of a product I’ll be slathering on from head to toe. Das Boom themselves describe the Detroit fragrance as a “blend of tobacco, musk and motor oil [that’s] a tribute to Motor City’s industrious legacy.”
