Remember the days when a quick blast of deodorant was all that you needed before hitting the town? Well, thankfully those days are gone, and we men have finally caught on to the fact that we need to put a bit more effort into taking care of ourselves. Male grooming has become a national pastime and with that in mind here’s a quick rundown of the essential grooming products to help perfect your look.
If you’re washing your face with the same shower gel you use for your feet, then you’re doing it all wrong. That skin on your face is far more sensitive and requires something that will get all that dirt and grime out in a gentle way and help prevent razor burn.
We like Neutrogena’s Facial Scrub because it’s simple, has no dyes, and does exactly what it’s supposed to do.
Yes, you read that right a body groomer. Whether you have fluffy chest hair or a back like a sasquatch, there will come a time when a bit of manscaping will cross your mind. We’re not going to lie, that back hair doesn’t look great when you’re strutting your stuff at the pool.
We highly recommend the manscaping game changer that is the Philips Bodygroom Series 5000 Body Groomer. It’s the ultimate grooming toy that even comes with a handy adapter for those hard to reach spots on your back.
We Australians are all too aware of the damaging effects of the sun’s rays, and a good sunscreen is a given in any man’s bathroom cupboard. But why not kill two birds with one stone by choosing one that also doubles as a moisturizer helping keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
Kiehl’s Facial Fuel SPF15 Sunscreen is by far one of the best creams out there. It does its job subtly with no greasy feeling on your skin after applying.
Keeping that new style looking like you just stepped out of a barber shop is the ultimate achievement in the art of male grooming. It’s quite often your most notable feature which is why we tend to spend a fair chunk of time fixing and checking it throughout the day.
Now we’re not going to recommend a particular product as each style requires something different but the boys at The Pomade Shop are guaranteed to have something that will suit your style.
It’s all well and good looking the part but what about smelling the part too? A nice understated fragrance is what it’s all about these days so don’t go gung ho with the aftershave. Keep it light and keep it simple.
We’re going for Dunhill Icon here and not just because it smells damn good but also because we think the bottle will look pretty sexy on your bathroom shelf. It’s a sweet fragrance to start with but it amazingly matures on your skin as the day wears on to something warmer and smokier. Top notch stuff.
There are many more items we’d love to recommend but these five should get you off to a good start. And once you’ve got yourself groomed to perfection, don’t forget to drop in for a look at our custom tailored suits. The ideal finishing touch for a well-groomed man.
