Grooming Guide: Skin care

Basic skin care is something we can all aspire to as "blokes". We don’t have to be a "metrosexual" and we don’t have to spend hours in the bathroom to get a presentable mug.

Good grooming: Shaving

"Shaving? I don’t need no shaving lesson! My dad taught me how with the blunt side of a Bic and a load of imperial lather when I was eight years old! It shows. Go and look in the mirror. You probably haven’t shaved in at least a couple of days. If you have shaved within the last 24 hours, I …

Elemis post-shave recovery mask

As a guy, you know that there’s nothing like a wet-shave to keep you looking fresh and well groomed – electric shavers generally just leave you looking like Homer Simpson. But as a guy, you also know of the dreaded razor burn. It’s an evil affliction, and to me extremely unfair. I mean, as men we have to shave at …

Men and tweezers

Over at See Jack Shop he is discussing eyebrow grooming, but I’m not so sure that UK men are that up for some magnifying mirror and tweezer action. I’ve seen Japanese men with shaved eyebrows but apart from a few averted monobrow massacres and uber-gay men who also wear foundation you don’t see many groomed eyebrows. I can understand some …

For those of you cool enough to have a bath as opposed to a shower, then you’ll be glad to know that you don’t have to whack the stereo up as loud as it will go to listen to tunes while you soak. The submarine bathtime radio (available in black and a nice yellow one for you Beatles’ fans) should …

The Xmas List, No.17: Philips QC5170 hair clippers

This is the first-ever set of clippers designed specifically for self-haircuts, thanks to the unique 180° pivoting head. As someone who has cut his own hair for many years (I’m sad to say I’m slowly going bald, so no point shelling out £15 for a grade-four all over), this sounds too good to be true. But, having used these clippers, …

Mullet shampoo and body wash

I’ve heard about two-in-one, but this is ridiculous. BoysStuff is selling some Mullet Shampoo and Body Wash, that’s designed to be used for your hair AND your car. It promises to keep your mullet (or rat-tails) clean and bushy, while at the same time ensuring your motor stays sparkly-fresh. I can’t help thinking they’re missing the point though. What’s the …
