Ariana & Evans - Never Alone 2 - Special Edition Aftershave Splash
A necessary conversation.
"When you don’t have the strength to take another step, ask those around you to pull you forward.” — Unknown
September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. A month dedicated to bringing awareness to this often ignored and stigmatized subject. We hope this project will raise awareness and spark a conversation surrounding the importance of mental health and wellness.
Unlike many causes of death, Suicide can be prevented. We can work together to ease the suffering of those within our reach. Suicide prevention is truly a community effort that requires friends, families, co-workers, and community members to work together. Our most valuable resource is each-other.
Our message is simple; You are not alone. If you are thinking about suicide or are concerned about someone else, don’t stay silent. Help is available 24/7 to talk, answer questions, and assist you in navigating challenging situations. Help is a phone call away!
Suicide Prevention Lifeline:
A few words from Justin, The Red Island Shaver:
Life can be hard, it can be cruel. Whether it’s a medical diagnosis, a financial crisis, loss of a job, a relationship, or a loved one, life can be absolutely suffocating… and we’ve been taught to swallow it down, to hide the pain, to put on a fake smile, and to never show weakness… and for some of us, it works, for others, it leads to suicide. There is however, hope… we aim to erase the stigma associated with mental health, we encourage our brothers and sisters to talk, and we are there for them so they don’t have to navigate this life feeling alone. Life is beautiful, it’s a gift, a most precious gift, and to those feeling the weight, let it be known that you are important, you are loved, and we are there for you. When you’re feeling down and out, reach out your hand to the community, and we will pick you up and help you because remember this, you are Never Alone.”
100% of the proceeds from this project will be split evenly between both, USA and Canadian Charities.
We have chosen the following charities to receive our donations:

Woody Aromatic Scent
Bergamot, grapefruit, Lavendar, cardamom, caraway, tobacco, sandalwood, oakmoss, leather, amber
Once again, we wanted to do something very special for this project . Jason recommended a cologney scent and I was all for that. I wanted a scent which would appeal to everyone, not polarizing or experimental, just something everyone would love. I believe this scent is a perfect follow up to our previous Barbershop offering.
