We’ve come a long way in terms of male grooming. The sheer idea of getting anything more than the newest Lynx can or using face a mask? Laughable. After all, all we need is a good razor, some shaving foam and a spray of deodorant, right? Perhaps not. In fact, for a lot of us, our skincare products came down to what our mum’s bought at the shop. Now, however, times are changing with male influencers speaking highly about the latest, eco-friendly skin moisturiser and, while we’re not quite at the ’12-step skincare regime’, we’re quickly catching up. 

This isn’t to mean you need to fork out on lots of different products with god-knows-what ingredients. Whether you like the traditional 3-in-1 method or you’re dying to try out the latest beard oil, we’ve made a list of the great grooming tools that every modern man needs. We’ll call it, compromise.

Eye Cream  

Life gets tiring and, boy, do our eyes show it. Using a refreshing eye-roller instantly brightens under your eyes and helps you feel re-energised with the cooling effect. We recommend Clinique’s Super Energizer Depuffing Eye Gel. 

Face Wash 

Dove does a really nice face wash that cleanses and re-hydrates your skin. Your face can become super sensitive and dry, especially during the colder months.   It’s definitely worth using a face wash every evening to keep your skin looking young (especially with all the pollution we’re facing).

Razor

You can’t go wrong with Gillette. Investing in a good razor is essential when styling facial hair or getting rid of facial hair. The blades move effortlessly giving you the most comfortable shave.

Nail toolkit 

Let’s not forget why we’re all here. To avoid ingrown and brittle nails, it’s really important to make sure that you’re looking after them correctly. Trim and file them down when you think they’re starting to get too long and why not moisturise your hands quickly before you go to bed? Trust us, you’ll thank us in the end.

Nail Kit

Cologne  

A bit of cologne never hurt anyone. Everyone has their signature scent, but we love the all-time classics: Dior’s Eau Sauvage. A quick spritz will have you feeling confident in no time.
