From the hottest new gadgets, to timelessly iconic fragrances, we’ve rounded up our top recommendations for every man, and want to show you why they deserve a pride of place on your bathroom shelf.
Cleansing: Skin Perfecting Tools
1. Sarah Chapman - Pro Pore Refiner
This triple-action, high-power tool cleanses blackheads, polluted pores and congested skin. Mimicking clinical extraction methods, this tool uses ionic cleansing and thermo-therapy to warm and soften the skin, while ultrasonic massage vibrations loosen blocked pores. Focused suction then effectively removes impurities. Skin appears decongested, and pores appear smaller. Remove stubborn blackheads or impurities from the comfort of your home.
2. Foreo - Luna Mini 3
The Luna Mini 3 is a T-Sonic facial cleansing massager with twelve adjustable massage settings and a dual cleansing surface for customisable skincare. With 8000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute, the Luna Mini 3 goes deep to remove 99.5% of dirt, oil, sweat and dead skin cells.
Skincare: Good Skin Starts Within
3. 111 Skin - Y Theorem Bio Cellulose Mask
This sheet face mask is a good option for a weekly or biweekly skin-deep treat. Designed to soothe, support and strengthen stressed skin, this bio-cellulose mask is infused with ingredients to hydrate, protect and perfect skin.
4. The Organic Pharmacy - Hyaluronic Acid Complex
For truly low maintenance skincare, incorporating a Hyaluronic Acid supplement such as this into your diet is a simple solution.
Hyaluronic acid is a long-chain sugar molecule which holds up to 1000 times its weight in water. It has been shown to improve hydration levels in the skin, and helps to maintain elasticity, stimulate collagen production in the skin, cushion joints and nerve tissues, while also acting as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
Dental Care: For Those Pearly Whites
5. Spotlight - Sonic Toothbrush
Designed by dental professionals, this toothbrush developed by Irish brand Spotlight, allows the gentle feel of a manual toothbrush, with the deep clean effect associated with electric versions. It is gentle and effective in removing plaque and discolouration, ensuring an amazing clean and long-term oral health.
6. Spotlight - Teeth Whitening Strips For Men
Designed specifically for men to deliver maximum impact, these teeth whitening strips are the only European whitening strips to contain hydrogen peroxide (less than 0.01%). Hydrogen peroxide is the most effective active agent to whiten teeth.
This kit contains 14 days of strips. It is recommended you dry the teeth before application, then place a strip first on the lower teeth and then the upper teeth. Leave strips in place for 1 hour. Afterwards, remove the strips and brush teeth. Repeat every day for 2 weeks for a truly dazzling smile.
Shaving: The Secret To A Clean Shave
7. Bolin Webb - X1 Eiger Grey
Bolin Webb’s award-winning razors for men are fitted with a Gillette Fusion Proglide5 blade, and primed and painted to an automotive finish. A clean and irritation-free shave starts with a high-quality razor, so look no further.
8. Kiehl’s - Smooth Glider Shave Lotion
A unique oil-infused lotion that softens facial hair and shields skin, the Smooth Glider Shave Lotion is a cream that instantly shifts into a transparent gel upon application. Melting on contact, it cushions skin to ensure a precise shave and protect from razor burn.
Beard Care: Styled To Perfection
9. Remington - Ultimate Series Rotary R7 Shaver
The perfect choice for shaping and tidying up your beard. 100% waterproof, and ideal to use with shaving gels or foam if you decide you want a tighter shave, this Rotary Shaver will neaten your beard easily and quickly.
10. Acqua Di Parma - Beard Styling Cream
With a soft and moldable texture, the Barbiere Beard Styling Cream styles beard with a delicate scent, without leaving a residue. The formula nourishes and conditions the beard for a soft, yet non-greasy touch.
Eyebrows: Grooming 101
11. Tweezerman - Slant Tweezer
A good tweezer is for many the most important tool in their arsenal. And brow grooming at home is surprisingly simple. Just be careful not to overpluck. Start with the space between your brows, then tidy up any stray hairs under your arch.
12. Tweezerman - Mirror Black
LED lighted, with 10x magnification, nothing will get past this mirror! Perfect for helping you see what you’re doing when grooming your brows, or any other stray hairs.
Hair: Let Your Hair Down
13. Babyliss - Power Glide Titanium Hair Clipper
Over the past few months, many of us have become more closely acquainted with cutting our own hair, and it doesn’t have to be nearly as daunting as you might think. With a proper set of clippers and guards, you can get a barber-worthy cut from the comfort of your home.
We recommend cutting your hair in a well lit room, such as your bathroom, with a dual mirror set up so that you can see the back of your head well. Dampen your hair before cutting, apply the appropriate guard (from 1-8) depending on the length you are seeking, and start cutting. It’s usually best to start with a higher numbered guard (for a longer length) and then going back in with a lower number guard if you want it shorter afterwards.
14. Aveda - Pure Formance Grooming Clay
The Aveda Pure-Formance Grooming Clay is a light-weight hair styling cream, with micro-fibres to help provide the style and control you need while also adding thickness to hair. The perfect way to style your freshly cut hairstyle.
Hands: Smooth and Supple
15. Margaret Dabbs - Manicure & Pedicure Set
This leather-encased Manicure & Pedicure Set contains a selection of premium tools to keep your hands and feet looking and feeling perfect. In convenient travel sizes, these stainless steel implements are designed to maintain precision and sharpness, for effortless cutting. A simple way to keep yourself looking groomed and tidy is by caring for your hands and feet, trimming nails and filing calloused skin.
16. Margaret Dabbs - Hydrating Hand Lotion
Whatever it is that may be drying your hands out, whether it’s hand-washing, the weather or hard work, an enriching hand lotion can solve all woes. This Hydrating Hand Lotion cares for skin and nails while targeting signs of ageing, replenishing even the most chapped, dry or sore skin.
Fragrance: Eau So Good
17. Acqua Di Parma - Colonia Deodorant Stick
Arguably the most important thing to remember before running out the door, a good deodorant is the saviour of any busy man. This delicately scented deodorant comes in a practical stick form, which makes it portable and easy to slip into your gym bag.
18. Acqua Di Parma - Colonia Eau De Cologne
For an even better impact, pair your fragrance of choice with your deodorant. No more clashing scents, by choosing both Acqua Di Parma products, you envelop yourself in a subtle, delicious Colonia scent which lasts all day long.
