Men's Grooming Gift Guide Time to Impress

[17/12/15] 

It’s almost Christmas and New Year’s, which means the party season is almost upon us. It’s a great time to stock up on grooming essentials that will ensure you look your best during those office parties and family gatherings. Here are some of our new-found favourites.

 


 

More than an ordinary shaving solution, ESPA’s Dual-Action ShaveMud doubles as a deep cleansing mask that will leave your skin nourished and revitalised while saving you vital grooming time. Formulated to replace lost nutrients and prevent razor burn, this rich and cooling shaving cream comprises active ingredients including highly absorbent kaolin and bentonite clays, which draw out impurities (perhaps not tequila but everything else) and improve razor glide; shea butter and sweet almond oil that soften and de-sensitises skin; and cocoa extract to slow hair growth.www.espaskincare.com

Designed to keep skin hydrated and plumped during those festive pub crawls, the Water Power Lotion by L'Oréal Men Expert is enriched with French mountain water in an ultra fresh watery texture that’s fast absorbing and non-greasy. Instantly quenching your skin with cooling hydration, think of this as an invisible overcoat for your face; it not only helps retain skin moisture, but also protects your lady-catcher from environmental aggression. www.loreal-paris.com

Another highly effective moisturiser that ensures gents celebrate Christmas with confidence is Code Purete Purifying Hydrating Fluid by Vichy Homme Men, specially designed for sensitive imperfection-prone skin. Featuring a patented technology based on salicylic acid, LHA and glycolic acid, this anti-shine, non-greasy moisturiser smoothens skin and reduce impurities by 51percent, while helping protect from oxidative damage. www.vichy.co.za

For those lads leaving our fair shores this festive season, Clinique for Men’s Well-Travelled, Well-Groomed travel kit ensures you arriving at your destination looking as good as you left. The exclusive kit comes with five skincare essentials, including a face scrub, cream shave, post shave soother, moisturizing lotion and anti-fatigue eye gel, all in security-friendly sizes. There is also a Clinique Happy for Men Cologne Spray to wrap you in a pleasant smell of citrusy lemon, mandarin, orange, and grapefruit that’s guaranteed to capture the attention of cabin attendants. www.clinique.com

Add a dose of seduction to your sexy Christmas date by wearing the new Boss the Scent fragrance by Hugo Boss. Although it may have a name straight out of the 1990s, this new fragrance was created for the ‘boss man’ who knows how to play seduction; its touches of ginger spice, Maninka fruit, lavender, and intense leather convey a magnetic masculinity that’s presented as an evocative amber juice set in a silver cage. www.hugoboss.com

Though you might think your well-trained muscles and six packs are seducing enough, chances are women will prefer you clean and fresh as well. Add a good body scrub to your shower routine with the Clear Improvement Detoxifying Charcoal Body Scrub by Origin. Boasting sea salts and brown sugar that exfoliate to smoothen skin texture, the scrub also features bamboo charcoal that rids your body of grease, toxins and…evidence. The refreshing aroma of clove and wintergreen also leaves you feeling invigorated, energised, and full of Christmas cheer. www.origins.com
