Who are they: Manscaped was founded in 2017 when founder & CEO, Paul Tran, noticed that men didn’t have enough options when it came to hygiene and grooming products. Manscaped is now a manufacturer and online retailer of personal care products and is among the best in men’s below-the-waist grooming and hygiene. The company creates a dynamic educational movement and culture focused on the importance of men’s health, hygiene, and refinement.
What's their product: Grooming tools that help men take care of their private (ahem, 'hard to navigate') areas with safe, precise tools. All their products stick to the 'manscaping' concept, offering tools such as the 'Lawn Mower', the 'Weed Whacker', the 'Shears', and the 'Crop Preserver'. Manscaped’s product line was created specifically for a man’s distinctive grooming needs featuring specially formulated products to cleanse, moisturize, and deodorize, as well as tools engineered to give a man a close and refined appearance.
Who's their target audience? Men between the ages of 18-35. Manscaped engages with this audience by using humor, which also helps break down the risque nature of the product.

Every man has the right to be pampered and the discount they’re offering has been consistent across channels as it’s clearly driving purchases. Integrations on podcast YouTube regularly urge the audience to "Get 20% Off and Free Shipping!"
Manscaped’s rival is currently Dollar Shave Club that’s doing their fair share of mentions on YouTube just like Manscaped.
Dollar Shave Club is using similar marketing tactics or is appearing in similar content, both organically and sponsored. Dollar Shave Club appears across more content categories, showing they may have a broader demographic than the male-focused Manscaped offerings. However, Manscaped could pull some of Dollar Shave Clubs’ best female lifestyle channels when running “Father’s Day” or “Valentines Day” gift promos catered to women. But when considering promotions and discounts, Manscaped has a better offer. Everyone loves saving money and getting discounts so this is a really big pull towards Manscaped. As we tracked Dollar Save Club on its YouTube sponsorship on The Dan-O Channel YouTube Channel, the promotion is a $5 off discount on your first order.
