Grooming has come a long way since the days of simple barbershops, slacked on aftershaves and close shaves. Gone are the stuffy old norms of what a grooming routine can be – these days, it’s all about facial masques, sophisticated scents, and other essentials to make your grooming less ‘dog days’ and more ‘best in show’.
Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque
This masque is anything but average. Made from the rarest of earth, a little goes a very long way. Oatmeal and aloe vera help soothe and protect the skin against the elements – and it’s unique clay colouring makes for the perfect snapchat selfie!
Le Labo The Noir
Musky, dark, yet surprisingly fresh, Le Labo’s The Noir is the ultimate in day-to-day fragrances. The concoction of tea leaves, figs, bergamot and cedar wood come together for an enticingly seductive scent that turns heads for good reason. Spritz on before heading out and let it settle – the smell will linger perfectly.
Aspinal of London Men’s Manicure Set
Fear not – for the traditionalists amongst you, look towards Aspinal’s manicure set to keep your claws in shape. Complete with a nail file, nail clippers, scissors and tweezers, this kit is wrapped in a travel-friendly leather casing for the man on the move that needs to tame his talons.
Gilette Fusion Proglide Styler
A must by any means. Shave, trim and edge all in one with this styler from the master’s of men’s facial hair – customise your length with the three different trim heads, or simply use as a battery-operated razor for day-to-day shaves that help eliminate stubble.
Tom Ford Concealer Stick
The man behind some of the world’s most stylish suits and tuxedos introduced his signature range of men’s grooming products years ago, but as the advent of men’s grooming gains traction, it’s best to get in on his collection now. A key pick? The concealer stick, bound to hide blemishes from dates, business clients, and the family portrait.
Mazorin Liquid Asset Working Late Eye Serum
Whether you’ve actually been working late, got off the red-eye, or simply just had the worst night’s sleep ever, this easy-application eye serum is like turning back the clock. The cooling serum instantly lifts the eye area, reducing puffiness and brightening dark circles, leaving you looking like you’ve never woken up in cold sweat from a nightmare about being in your pants in a job interview.
Byredo Sunday Cologne Eau de Cologne
A classic grooming finisher, the cologne will never go out of style. But how to update what is a stagnant, often musky smell? Sunday Cologne is the modern interpretation of a classic cologne, with zesty citrus notes with a fresh and update scent that lingers in the wind.
