Cade After Shave Balm by L’Occitane En Provence

By Alex Noble

For all you chappers out there who choose to have shaving as part of their morning routine and are set on maintaining stubble-free look, I’ve got to ask the question; does your skin not take a battering? Day after day, performing acutely measured razor strokes on  almost bare skin must cause some serious wear and […]

L’Occitane En Provence Shea Butter Hand Cream

By Alex Noble

It’s safe to say that in the world of men’s grooming, changes have been coming thick and fast for the last decade. We’ve undergone (and are still experiencing) a revolution whereby an increasing number of gents are showing more care towards their facial grooming and skincare.  First came the wave of hair products, followed by facial moisturisers, oils and balms, often specifically […]

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. Yet, over a period of time, external influences such as the military, new attitudes towards styling and adventurous celebrities and stylists alike have come […]

Introducing Regal Gentleman

By Adam

We must profess to knowing a fair bit about grooming products, and we of course probably should. It’s also fair to say that once you look into the world of male grooming products, there seems to be an overwhelming amount of brands with countless product offerings, which become confusing. It’s a complex world, working out […]

Over the last fortnight, I have been trialing some teeth whitening products from Billion Dollar Smile which promises an easy and gentle solution to achieve an Instagram worthy smile.

By Adam

Whilst the sun continues to shine in London, I’ve been trialling a sun care product from MALIN+GOETZ. The SPF 30 – High Protection is a fairly new addition to the brands skin care range and I started using it over the last seven days to replace my morning face moisturiser. The main difference to standard […]

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. […]

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

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 […]

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 […]
