I’ve just been voted One of the 10 leading grooming bloggers in the UK by Fashion Monitor and to celebrate I wanted to share some exciting new Autumn/Winter product releases from the world of grooming. So without further ado…
LAB SERIES MAX LS Matte Renewal Lotion
Finally! a matte moisturiser that actually works! the lightweight formula features absorbent powders to instantly mattify the T-zone to controls shine and when used over time, can actually help control oil production. If that wasn’t enough, the instant optics help diffuse imperfections to enhance the quality of the skin.

PAUL MITCHELL Scalp Care Anti-Thinning Shampoo and Conditioner
Thinning hair can be one of the biggest concerns as men, so the clever guys over at PAUL MITCHELL have tackled the root of the problem, by creating a shampoo and conditioning preventative system that naturally helps slow down the process of thinning hair.

Kiehl’s Breakout Control Targeted Blemish Spot Treatment
Don’t know about you guys, but the change of the season has certainly given me breakouts, so Kiehl’s Breakout Control Targeted Blemish Spot Treatment really couldn’t have been released at a better time! Simply dab onto the blemished area to rapidly reduce the appearance and dry out those annoyances!
Kiehl’s Smooth Glider Shave Cream
Now I don’t know about you, but in order to get my Craig David beard precision on fleek, I have to use minimal shaving gel, so I can see exactly where I’m guiding my razor – not always beneficial for post-shave recovery. Well, those clever folks at Kiehl’s realise my need to be on fleek and have created a unique oil-infused shaving lotion that softens hairs and transforms into a transparent gel upon application – genius!
MONROE Night Recovery Serum
I tend to use a serum more in the winter months to add an extra layer of protection to my face. This lightweight MONROE Night Recovery Serum contains argan oil and is packed with Vitamin A & E to stimulate skin cell turnover, whilst carrot oils nourish and rejuvenate skin.
RRP £64.99 – Available from www.monroeoflondon.co.uk/

Clarins Men Anti-Fatigue Eye Serum
As we wake up in the dark and the nights draw in earlier, naturally we’re starting to feel more fatigued towards the end of the year. The most obvious sign of exhaustion is skin, in particular, the eye area. Clarins Men Anti-Fatigue Eye Serum is here to combat dark circles and reduce puffiness, as well as addressing any early visible signs of ageing.
The Bluebeards Revenge Body Wash
This foaming body wash by The Bluebeards Revenge is the ultimate man wash! it’s carefully formulated to cut through daily dirt and grime to leave skin hydrated and feeling as fresh as a daisy! It also smells great and a little bit old school, which I like.
RRP £9.99 – Available from http://www.bluebeards-revenge.co.uk/
American Crew Protective Shave Foam
Shaving products from American Crew – I thought they only did hair products (I hear you cry). Well, in fact, the American Crew shaving range has been around for a while but has had a bit of a revamp and is super bathroom friendly (matt-black is literally a man’s best friend). The protective shave foam does as it says on the tin, soothes and prevents irritation.
RRP £11.50 – Available from http://us.americancrew.com/
FIT Moisturising Ultra Serum
Ditch the moisturiser, as this daily serum from FIT, is bursting with the most advanced ingredients to intensely hydrate skin. The serum melts into the skin to protect, repair and refresh the face. As well as being packed with Vitamins A, E and four types of Vitamin B, the serum includes Caffeine to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness in the eye area.
RRP £50 – Available from https://www.fitskincare.co.uk
