WINTER GROOMING: SCRUBD SKINCARE FOR MEN

Get set for winter with an innovative skincare collection specifically designed for men. 

Whether you are seeking winter sun before, or after Christmas, or following the cold weather to snow peaked mountains, skincare is still important. SCRUBD is here with straightforward products that will keep your skin in tip-top condition, whatever the weather.

For the Winter Sun Seeker:
Protecting your skin from the sun is obviously very important, but re-hydrating, and removing any dead skin cells after the day is over is imperative to maintain that holiday glow, without flakes appearing.

Energising Face Moisturiser (50ml, RRP £34)

The Moisturiser contains Argan Oil and Manuka Honey to help lock in moisture, and Peppermint and Bergamot to invigorate and energise skin after being in the sun.

Energising Face Scrub (100ml, RRP £24)

The Face Scrub will clear the skin, revealing the smooth texture beneath. It contains a blend of cleansing natural oils and vitamins, including Volcanic Rock to scrub away the dead skin cells, and Lime and Blackcurrant Seed to stimulate and restore the skin’s youthful texture.

Or the Energising Range Gift Box, including both of the above, the Energising Face Wash, 100ml and the SCRUBD canvas wash bag – all suitable sizes to take in hand luggage on the plane (RRP £65).

For the Skiers:

Skin protection here is paramount, as the cold and the sunshine work together to dry out skin very quickly on the mountain. SCRUBD recommend deep moisturiser and Eye Gel.

Anti- Ageing Moisturiser (50ml, RRP £42)

The powerful multi-action formula uses Marine Collagen and CoQ10 to reduce the appearance of fine lines, while also hydrating with Goji Berry and Passion Fruit Extract for the perfect barrier against the snow and cold of the mountain.

Anti-Ageing Eye Gel (15ml, RRP £32)

This Eye Gel contains Caffeine and Cucumber Extract to help replenish the skin with natural moisture and nourishment.

Or the Anti-Ageing Range Gift Box, including both of the above, and the SCRUBD canvas wash bag (RRP £65).

SCRUBD can be bought at Harvey Nichols or online at www.SCRUBD.com

BAG SOME AFFORDABLE GROOMING PRODUCTS AT THE SUPERMARKET

The male grooming sector continues to grow, and the choice has become bigger than ever before. British supermarkets now stock multiple ranges of affordable grooming products, and here we bring you four of the best...

Bull Dog

Probably the biggest, and fastest growing, male grooming brand out there, the Bull Dog range really does cater for every aspect of male beauty. What started off as a skincare range has gradually expanded into a full-on male grooming collection, boasting additional items such as beard oils, shaving foams, hair care products and deodorants.  If you're looking for a naturally formulated collection of grooming gems, then be sure to check out the Bull Dog range.

Dove Men Care

Dove, known historically for its soaps and women's body care solutions, launched its male grooming collection a few years ago, and it has proved to be a popular range since. Affordable and easy to access through all major supermarkets, Dove Men Care is a collection worth trying for the guys who prefer a fuss-free approach to their grooming routine.

Rock Face

This quirky male grooming brand specialises in two main aspects of men's beauty - skincare and body care. It's not often that guys will purchase the full Rock Face collection, but rather pick one or two products from this impressive line.  If you're short of a buck or two, then Rock Face offers you an excellent alternative to the more expensive brands, but not compromising on performance.

Man Cave

One of the newer lines to hit big supermarket chains like Sainsbury's, Man Cave offers men as small but innovative collection of male grooming products.  The products from this cool brand includes body care sprays, moisturisers, shampoos and shaving gels.  With its refreshing scent and affordable price, this collection gives you pretty much everything you could want from a grooming range.

CORNERSTONE CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FOR MEN



The jolly Christmas season is approaching thick and fast so it's time to start preparing your gift ideas for the man in your life. Whether it's a boyfriend, husband, brother, father or grandad, this comprehensive 5-step list could make a great collection of gifts for the clean-shaven gentleman in your life.

Cornerstone Razor & Blades

Cornerstone's new razor has five super sharp, fine blades, optimally spaced to increase shave performance and reduce clogging, an Aloe Vera strip to help the blades glide smoothly, as well as a new precision trimmer blade for those hard to reach areas. Each blade is made from Japanese chromium steel to reduce micro-corrosion of its cutting edge and coated with a layer of titanium and diamond grade carbon to ensure the cutting edge stays sharper for longer. Please note, although their razors are perfect for your face, we do not recommend using them for head-shaving.

Sensitive Face Wash

It's important to always wash your face in the morning as during the night your skin goes into 'repair mode' and will withhold oil which can prevent your normal daytime products (such as your Daily Moisturiser) from working properly. Using Cornerstone's Face Wash is an oil-free and sensitive daily face wash blended with mint and cucumber extracts to deliver a gentle yet invigorating clean. It removes excess dirt and impurities from your skin to make your skin feel energised and refreshed in the morning.

Foaming Sensitive Shave Cream

Cornerstone's foaming sensitive shave cream combines a blend of willow bark and bamboo to provide a rich foaming lather to condition and protect your skin whilst you shave. The natural willow bark extract, known for its anti-inflammatory property, helps to reduce shaving irritation leaving your skin smooth and ready for the next step.

Sensitive Cooling Post-Shave Balm

Used after shaving, Cornerstone's Post-Shave Balm cools, refreshes and moisturises - helping to restore your skin’s natural moisture balance and reducing irritation. Blended with mint and honey extracts to soothe and condition. As with the scrub, if you’re not used to a post-shave balm – we’re pretty sure that once you’ve given it a try, you won’t regret it.

Leather Wash Bag

Travel in style with Cornerstone's leather wash bag. Every wash bag is handmade using tough, distressed buffalo leather, which will soften over time to give a distinctive, stylish character. The interior waterproof lining will keep all your travel essentials safe, while the smaller zip pocket keeps things organised.

5 GROOMING GIFT-SETS FOR MEN



Check out five of the best male grooming gift sets, whether it be for Christmas, a birthday treat, or for your man on that special occasion...

With the festive season well on its way, it's time for many of us to start considering what gifts to get for our friends and loved ones. The male beauty industry continues to grow rapidly, and there has never been a better time to be a part of it.  The broad range of brands and products on the market gives us more choice then we have ever had. And that goes for gift sets too.

So, if you're keen to get your man that something special for whatever the occasion, then here are some gift ideas to seriously consider...

A.  The KIEHL'S men's starter kit contains a great range of skincare products that will leave your man looking and feeling better than ever before.  If you're looking for a more premium, yet popular gift set for your man, then you can't ever go wrong with the much respected brand, KIEHL'S.

B.  Royal Shave have released a rather dapper looking shaving kit that mixes traditional with contemporary.  The vintage shaving scene boomed in 2012, and it hasn't looked like dipping anytime since. If your man takes pride in his shave, then consider this stunningly assembled set.

C.  The modern and sleek packaging of the Hunter men's skincare pack could well leave your man feeling very impressed.  This contemporary line of skincare products may cost you more than the average kit of this nature, but we believe it's worth it, especially if your man takes pride in his skin.

D.  Is your man one of the very few that sports a moustache? If so then consider this cheerful little moustache grooming kit that contains a moustache wax, oil and comb. This would make an ideal stocking filler or a side gift.

E.  Salvatore Ferragamo is a top men's fashion brand, and it's great to see them doing awesomely cool gift sets too. Consider this traditional and stylish shoe polish kit that gives your man everything he needs to keep his shoes looking clean, polished and dapper.
