Gifts with benefits.

If your man struggles with oily skin, razor burn, beardruff or he steals your moisturiser – we can help! We’ve put together a list of common grooming concerns and our simple solutions. Gift the man in your life a grooming routine that encourages self-care and fixes his grooming concerns.

Misbehaving beard

Is it snowing or is that just his beard? Beardruff is a common grooming concern with a simple fix. Massaging beard oil into the skin underneath the beard will stop beardruff in its tracks. We have quite a few oils in-store to choose from, our top picks are The Groomed Man Co. Love Wins Beard OilJS Sloane Beard Oil and the V76 By Vaughn Beard Oil.

For unruly beard hair, we recommend using a beard balm such as The Groomed Man Co Morning Wood Beard Balm, Bossman Hammer Balm or the Captain Fawcett’s Balm in Booze & Baccy. Balm softens the hair and makes the beard more manageable, nicer to kiss (well it is Valentine’s Day after all?) and keeps the hair in line.

Shaving irritation

Lumps. Bumps. Shaving burns. Ingrown hairs. Even the most sensitive of necks needn’t be this irritated.

The tools used when shaving make a big difference. We believe the best shave comes from the oldest grooming tool on the block – the Safety Razor (you can learn why in our blog 5 Things To Know About Safety Razors).

Using a good quality shave cream is very important to prevent damage to the skin when shaving. For someone prone to lumps and bumps we recommend using a sensitive formula shave cream like the Truefitt & Hill Ultimate Comfort Shave Cream, the Baxter Of California Super Close Shave Formula or Muhle Aloe Vera Shave Cream.

Razor burn occurs when men don’t moisturise after having a shave. Using an aftershave balm like the Truefitt & Hill Aftershave balm (Sandalwood is our favourite) soothes, protects and adds moisturise back into the skin after a shave.

Oily Skin

For the oily face gents who often get imperfections or excessive shine you need to use products which help to reduce the amount of oil your skin produces. Halt oil production by using a cleanser specific for oily skin and following with an oil-free moisturiser. Pro tip: Don’t skip the moisturiser as oily skin will overproduce oil if it feels dry! The dream team to solve your greasy complexion are the Anthony Glycolic Facial Cleanser and the Anthony Oil Free Face Lotion.

Dry Skin

Help your partner say goodbye to rough, dry and flaking skin… for good! Dry skin doesn’t stand a chance against a good facial scrub (once a week) and a quality moisturiser.  Our favourites are the Triumph & Disaster Rock & Roll Suicide Face Scrub which doubles as a clay mask and the gentle but effective V76 By Vaughn Daily Balance Exfoliating Facial Cleanser. The BUCK Face Moisturiser will nourish even the driest faces or the Hunter Lab Daily Face Fuel has an added benefit of working to reverse sun damage.
