Black Leopard men’s skincare range: Australia’s latest export

Australia:  A faraway land that has given us Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman and Elle Macpherson, among others. A land that has produced some surprisingly good rock groups, such as Wolf Mother and AC/DC. A land with amazing, wild, landscapes, amazing cities and a stunning coastline. Not, however, a place you would associate with men’s skincare and grooming.  Black Leopard is hoping to change all that.

Best ever fit with Marks and Spencer

Over time, the clothes I wear on a typical day have changed. While I like to take care in my appearance, the busy life I lead as a school run dad who runs his own blogging business means comfort is as important as style.

Bulldog Skincare: Shower gels for the environmentally conscious man

I confess I am a fan of Bulldog Skincare. I’m particularly partial to its face washes and men’s moisturisers but the brand has taken a leap in a different direction by producing a range of environmentally conscious shower gels, all of which I have been making use of.

Christmas gifts from Samuel Windsor

Just the other day, I had to get ready for a formal event in Central London. An unavoidable last-minute outfit change meant I was scrabbling around for a tie and handkerchiefs. Had I opened a Christmas gift-package that had just arrived from men’s clothing retailer Samuel Windsor, I’d have found both items inside.

A quality shaving experience with Váli

If there’s one thing I like, it’s a polite but firm approach. When asked if I’d like to try out and the Starter Kit from shaving specialist Váli, I received the an email from one of the company’s founders stating: “I note your coarse facial hair and think you would like our products.” With that simple statement, Váli had set itself a challenge. Here’s how it coped with my coarse facial hair.
