Proverb: Lifefuelled Skincare for Men

By Alex Noble

‘Real men don’t use moisturiser.’ This is what I’m told. A real man, you know, a son of Adam, allows his skin to wear naturally and turn into what can only be described as elephant hide. It sounds ridiculous but for a large proportion of chaps out there, facial care is seen as feminine and emasculating. […]

Ted Baker Tonics Review

By Adam

In this day and age, us Chappers are constantly bombarded with scents, infusions and products of alchemy, each with their own overly-dramatic marketing story. Fragrances have become as much a nuisance as they have a necessity. So, when you find yourself a fragrance that you really like, hold on to it… We are very fond of the […]

Murdock London: Shoredtich

By Alex Noble

Chappers, do you have a trusted barber whom you visit not just for a quality grooming experience, but an entertaining chin-wag and a cup of coffee (or something stronger)? The kind of barber that knows your lid like the back of their hand, and understands the balance between what you want and what’s best for your […]

Murdock London’s Male Grooming Range

By Alex Noble

Chappers, grooming matters; whenever, or wherever you hear otherwise, ignore it, because grooming truly matters. Whether you shave every morning without fail, allow yourself a cheeky five o’clock shadow, or have indulged in some form of beard growth, it’s important to ensure you’re 100% behind your chosen look. Unfortunately, achieving optimal grooming levels isn’t as […]

MÜHLE Travel, Vegetable-Tanned Cowhide Travel Case, Mach3 Razor & Travel Brush

By Adam

OK, so picture this: You’ve just flown a few hours across the Med, seated next to some annoying chatterbox, experienced a hold-up at airport security, endured an unorganised and very un-British taxi queue, and then had a taxi driver who made the airplane chatterbox seem like a saint…Now you’re finally in your hotel room ready to […]

Shiseido Men Total Revitalizer Cream Review

By Matt Denney

If, like me, your Japanese is limited, you may not have come across the term ‘kaizen’. It’s a Japanese philosophy of improvement and change for the better, occurring through small shifts and alterations day after day. Overtime it brings about a complete transformation. Now you may be wondering why that is in any way relevant […]

Gielly Green Boutique Salon, Ten Trinity Square

By Alex Noble

When the time comes to get a hair cut, beard trim, or both, gents usually head to their familiar and trusty barber for a friendly chinwag and a fresh look. This usually results in you leave feeling killer (If it doesn’t then what are you doing?), knowing your mane has been tamed and you’re looking sleek.  However, I challenge […]

Refinery Face Wash and After Shave Balm Review

By Joe Burns

We’re already fans of what Refinery have on offer, and if you’ve previously taken our advice, you’d have dabbled with their creations too. Still, with so many brands out there and only so many faces in the office, it can prove challenging to get time to try everything, I know, first world problems hey? So […]

DRAKES OF LONDON: Facial Review

By Adam

DRAKES OF LONDON have been on my radar for quite a while, but for a while I just didn’t get the chance to pop in. There are two venues, one in Tower Hill, and another on the corner of Jerdan Place, just a few miles down the road from me in Fulham – this is […]
