Top 5 Grooming Products

By Toni Tran In Grooming, United Kingdom
That morning menswear beauty routine. It's probably a shock to most, men now care about their beauty facial & body rituals. Put aside the feminine stereotype and think about your health. Grooming is the guide to care as much as you wake up and look in the mirror.Besides just splashing your face with water and taking the first baby steps to the menswear grooming aisle, it can be rather daunting by the ranges of products scattered on the shelf. Where do you begin? Several brands calling your name saying SCRUB ME, CLEANSE, EXFOLIATE & UNBLOCK YOUR PORES. I'd honestly never heard of these black heads until I was educated to wash in a circular motion. There are many factors when facing several products, is it the brand, the price or the actual benefits as listed on the packaging? VANITY PLANET STORE: Skin spa system Electronic Brush.  All you need is two AA batteries, and your fully charged to essentially brush your face. Just like it is with your electronic toothbrush, the circular motion helps target areas from three various of attachable brush heads. From soft to hard brush hairs to the exfoliating scrub, you have the option of changing the dial heads to slow to fast. I definitely recommend this product, as it makes morning routines that more fun and it definitely works wonders on your appearance.  Website: Hair Routine: Bumble & Bumble Styling Creme & Sumotech. I have about tried every hair product to have touched my ''beehive hairstyle''. You can say I've finally found the one. From making flat hair, volumized and thicker after a conditioned flat hair, the boost of texture has made it more easier. Applying the Sumotech was a piece of cake, it's like spreading clay/paste/non greasy wax to your hair that works at an ease. It's definitely products I will be using for a while, that until I buy all of there stock!  Website: Face Routine: Rehab London range for Men. Fresh and lightly fragrant, the premium range is one for the serious contenders of grooming. If your looking for products that work, and will have long term effects of reducing signs of fatigue and increase circulation, leaving skin rejuvenated and revitalised then these are products for you. They've scientifically been proven to improve results, during shaving, daytime and over night.  Website: Faith in Nature for Men Review. The infused Ginger & Lime had my citrus tastebuds wondering what affects this shower gel & hair shampoo would do to my outer skin. We know the extracts works wonder in the inside of our bodies, a refreshed antioxidant to cleanse our system and a soothing medicine to our health. I personally love the ginger essences and the zest flavours of lime, although the senses are not overpowering as you'd expect. With its subtly spicy and warming aromas, this luxurious product is sure to stimulate your senses.   Price:  £5.50 Each 400ml Bottle, 5 litres £50  Website: The new Penhaligons No. 33 Eau de Cologne fragrance Review. I've been a fragrance fan of the brand since last year, when they launched the Bayolea menswear grooming range. You can count on the product lasting for a long while, just in time for the new scent to replace my ever lasting aroma. It is yet to be released until July 2015, in celebration of Penhaligon's 145th Anniversary. Named after a Penhaligon’s boutique at No. 33 St James’s Street, the Eau de Cologne is based around an aromatic composition of lavender. 
Top Notes: Bergamot, Orange, Grapefruit, Armoise, Coriander, Clary Sage, Cypress Heart Notes: Lavender, Violet, Black Pepper, Ginger, Jasmine, Rose, Muguet, Geranium, Saffron, Cardamom Base Notes: Amber, Vetiver, Musk, Moss, Tobacco, Tonka Bean, Vanilla, Cedarwood 
Price: 50ml £67  & 100ml £88 Website: Waking up can be a daunting experience for every Monday morning. Knowing that you have to go to work or school for a majority of us, and arriving prompt on time to your meetings. For those like myself, turning up fashionably late, besides the hair, facial and shower ritual and then delaying the time with a new instagrammable OOTD to your day ahead. It's as important to treat your day with a fresh and approach your physical appearance like there is no tomorrow. Get in the habit of organising your morning products, from the facial scrubs, to the shaving gels and finish leaving the house with your favourite fragrance. Am never left without feeling cleansed, rejuvenated and moisturised, because grooming is far more natural and beautiful than slapping on makeup.
