Men’s Grooming: The Essential Line-Up
Gone are the days when you need to “borrow” from your significant other’s beauty product collection - men’s grooming has never been so advanced. Sharing skincare is often inefficient and ineffective, as men’s skin is thicker and tougher than women’s, however this doesn’t mean it’s any less in need of care and attention.
The daily abrasion of shaving means that many men suffer from sensitive skin, while an increased sebum production can also contributes to oiliness; this combination requires targeted products to balance, soothe and calm. We have a comprehensive range of male-specific grooming products to ensure you look your best. Here are five of our favourites:
1. NuBo Cell Dynamic Cooling Aftershave Moisturiser SPF20
NuBo’s bestselling post-shave skincare is the ideal multi-tasker to kick start your skincare regime. “This product is engineered to stay active for at least 12 hours after one application,” explains NuBo’s Director Marina Shcherbinina. “It’s designed to calm down sensitive skin, combat dryness, ease irritation and provide protection.” With added anti-ageing properties it’s a daily essential that should be in every man’s bathroom cabinet.
2. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence For Men
SK-II’s cult essence has won over the beauty world and Hollywood alike with its radiance-boosting formula, and there’s no reason why men should miss out on its transformative powers. This male edition is specially created to restore the balance between moisture and oiliness, and will also address darkness and wrinkles – simply pat a small amount over cleansed skin daily.
3. Shiseido Men Cleansing Foam
A good cleanser is an essential part of your skincare regime. This Shiseido foam will remove all dirt and grime without leaving your skin feeling tight and dry. We suggest using it in the shower morning and night to refresh and rebalance – the flip-cap bottle also makes it ideal for keeping in your gym bag to cleanse post-workout.
4. Natura Bissé Diamond Extreme Eye
The first signs of ageing are usually visible around the eye, so it’s especially important to treat the area. “Any gentleman of any age would enjoy our Diamond Extreme Eye,” says Natura Bissé’s Michael Ann Guthrie. “It’s in a pump so it’s easy to apply and it lasts forever, you really can’t over-use it. It absorbs so quickly and disappears, the only thing you can feel is that the eye is soothed and calm.”
5. Tom Ford Conditioning Beard Oil Tobacco Vanille
A beard of any length requires care, and for this we recommend Tom Ford. This beard oil will take care of all your facial hair needs, ensuring that your beard is conditioned, soft, nourished and perfumed with the smoky notes of Tobacco Vanille. Don’t forget to pop the accompanying Beard Comb in your suit pocket for impromptu grooming throughout the day.
