If we’re honest, there have been a plethora of men’s shaving products on the market in the last few years; some great, and well, some that promise to improve your […]

When our friends at Acqua di Parma have something to announce our ears always prick up and we’ve just been informed that the Colonie universe is expanding with a new fragrance, Colonia Futura.  It was released exclusively with John Lewis on the 6th August so this really is hot off the press.  The latest addition […]

Particle for Men Review

By Adam

We get it, some of us have been getting a little too comfortable at home. Perhaps we’re not burning as many calories as we should, the iron is collecting dust and the refrigerator looks more at home in an off-licence.

Tigi – Bedhead Products Review

By Alex Noble

There was a time when most, if not all gents, donned a similar haircut, no matter their hair type, colour or face shape. A relatively short comb over was the norm.

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. […]
