To all the gentlemen out there, it's 2017 so there is no excuse for an unkept unruly beard these days - the stigma around men's grooming has well and truly dissipated. With National Grooming Day actually 'a thing' it aims to raise awareness and ultimately educate men on how to look after themselves better. Skincare and haircare are the main two areas of which small changes to your daily men's grooming regime will make major improvements. Here are my top male grooming products which have all be tried and tested by myself.
Jo Malone - Lime Basil & Mandarin Shower Oil
£32.00 for 250ml - A soft shower oil which leaves your skin feeling soft and aromatic.
Heath - Hair & Body Wash
£8.00 for 250ml - Made in England this affordable option is enriched with ginseng and caffeine to provide an immediate power boost.
Kiehl's - Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner
£19.50 for 250ml - The masculine scented product removes hair product buildup whilst hydrating the scalp.
Jo Malone - Geranium & Walnut Body Scrub
£42.00 for 200ml - A unisex product that for a body scrub is gentle on your skin and therefore usable for frequent use. The scent is incredible.
Clinique for Men - Charcoal Face Wash & Face Scrub
Face wash £18.00 for 200ml / Face scrub £21.00 for 100ml - Best used together, firstly with the face scrub followed by the face wash. Revitalises and smoothes your skin.
LAB Series - Multi-Action Face Wash
£19.00 for 100ml - Being 100ml and multi-action makes this product perfect for travelling. The cream is foamy and leaves the face extremely conditioned.
Harry's - Shave Gel & Razor
£24 for the set - The shave gel is easy on the skin and allows the razor to glide along effortlessly. German blades, precision shaving.
Remington - Barba Beard Trimmer
£29.99 - The godfather of all beard trimmers, this little beauty is robust, affordable and does exactly what you need it to do, no gimmicks no fuss.
LA MER - All skincare products
The LA MER product range is unbelievable, you pay for what you get. The LA MER moisturising matte lotion is £180 but you'll be able to tell the difference immediately between this and a cheaper entry level moisturiser so if you love to indulge in the best, these products are it.
Tom Ford - Conditioning Beard Oil & American Crew Beard Serum
In my opinion these are two of the best beard oils on the market. The Tom Ford, is infused with their private blend scent and slightly lighter than the American Crew version which is better for shorter stubble.
Guerlain - Super Aqua Crème Day Gel
£83.00 for 50ml - This luxury face creme protects your face during the day whilst wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed out.
Dr Sebagh & Estée Lauder - Eye Serum
These beauties are great for making the eye area look smoother, younger and more vibrant whilst reducing dehydrated dark circles. Use Dr Sebagh during the day and the Estée Lauder serum during the night.
Clinique for Men - Maximum Hydrator
£34.00 for 100ml - Lightweight is weight but a heavyweight in stature this is a new product from Clinique for Men. This water-gel formula intensely hydrates the skins moisture over a 24 hour period, perfect to take away on holiday when your skin is over exposed to the sun and other elements.
TONI&GUY - Hair Products
I only use the best hair products and these are the TONI&GUY for Men range. Developed specifically for men their range is extensive and can cater for all type of hair and all styles.
Jo Malone - Oud & Bergamot Cologne Intense
£112.00 for 100ml - Beautifully intense with notes of precious Middle-Eastern oud combined with the sweet citrus bergamot and cedarwood.
Tom Ford - Private Blend Fragrances
The godfather of fragrance, only the finest ingredients are used and you can smell evert single, perfectly put together notes. Two of my all time favourite fragrances are Tuscan Leather and Tobacco Vanille, whilst Oud Minérale is new to the party.
