When it comes to style, grooming is an absolute essential.
But before you even get to fixing your perfect coif, you need to fix up your face first. That means investing in making sure you’ve got the right tubes and lotions sitting in your bathroom cabinet, ready to make you a smoother, dapper-looking man.

Clinique Skin Supplies for Men – Post-Shave Soother
If your skin is prone to blemishes, this soothing post-shave treatment is an ideal addition – helping to heal minor nicks and cuts while keeping breakouts under control. Sleek, steel-grey packaging makes this a perfect staple to keep on the shelf.
Clinique for Men - Dark Spot Corrector
Hyperpigmentation doesn’t just mean the odd dark spot here or there. It can end up leaving your skin looking dull and uneven, making you look older and tired. This treatment contains vitamin C and yeast extract – designed to break down excess melanin. While it certainly won’t work its magic overnight, use it regularly for clearer and brighter looking skin.
Tom Ford for Men – Oil-Free Daily Moisturiser
Whatever your skin type, moisturiser is a key piece in your skin saviour collection. But if you’re veering on the oilier side, then a heavy formula can leave you with an unflatteringly shiny, greasy looking face. Solution? Definitely not to skip the moisturiser – instead, try this oil-free version, with an ultra-lightweight formula, made with natural butters. Light enough not to weigh you down, this will keep your skin hydrated, with a subtle matte finish.
L’Oreal Men - Expert Hydra Energetic Eye Roll-On
Dark circles under eyes? These can leave looking much worse for wear - and add in a long shift at the office, or a late night at the office, and it’s hard to shake off the tiredness. Eye creams and balms can definitely help to ease away the weariness – but when you need an instant fix, this cooling roll on helps soothe tired eyes and combat dark circles.
La Roche-Posay – Effaclar K
Stuck with black heads and bumps? The right moisturiser will not only help keep your skin looking healthy but can also help it become clearer. This French pharmacy favourite is packed with anti-oxidants and sebum regulators, to stop your skin from becoming excessively oily and prevent imperfections.
Malin & Goetz – Sulphur Paste
If your skin’s affected by serious breakouts, then it’s time to break out the big guns. Malin & Goetz is one of the best skincare brands to turn to for every issue, and their sulphur paste will soon be your best friend, as the perfect treatment to tackle serious breakouts in an emergency. Apply it directly to the worst parts and leave it on overnight for miraculously clear skin the next morning.
