The Legacy of Tabac’s Grooming Products

When it comes to men’s grooming products, every man is on the lookout for quality items that will give him the results that he is looking for, whether it is shaving products or body care. One line of grooming products that has been around since 1959 and is sold from Germany, Estonia, and France is Tabac Original. It is a distinctive line of products with a fragrance that combines spicy notes with exotic wood fragrances and an undertone of floral and musk.


The first product is the Tabac Original Eau de Cologne. It takes the original scent and puts it in a spray cologne that will keep you feeling like you just stepped out of the shower all day long and the distinctively masculine scent will draw others close. I love the bottling as well, pretty straight forward compared to a lot of the silly boxy designs out there.


Next, is the Tabac Original Deodorant Stick. It will give you 24 hour protection from wetness and odor, as well as the familiar fragrance that will blend well with any of Tabac’s other grooming products. Note that the smell is really only a hint so no worries about coming off as overcompensating! Everyone needs a great deodorant, so why not make it something special?


Lastly, is the Tabac Original Shaving Soap. Shaving is brought to the next level with a great shaving soap. This particular one will soften your whiskers in preparation for the shave, as well as leaving your skin moisturized and soft with the same original fragrance. It is a fantastic product for every man because even bearded guys will have to shave around their beards to keep things neat. Best part? The soap you don’t use, i.e. the remaining bar, dries fairly quickly after brushing off your daily amount.

These grooming products by Tabac have been loved by men all over the world for the last 55 years, not only for the quality and original scent, but also for the fantastic price.

Men’s Fashion Trends – Top 5 Grooming Products For The New Year

‘New Year, new you’ is a phrase that rears its ugly head but once a year. Admittedly it would be a great time to start a fresh but all your good New Year intentions should ‘start as you mean to go on’ – the same goes for your skin. All the late nights drinking what’s left of the Christmas beer stash and indulging in only the most festive of foods until post-party season your hair and body is screaming for a detox! We take a look at the top 5 grooming products to banish any signs of the good nights that have gone and will bring your hair and body into the New Year with a fresh start. You can find these great products at Brummells of London as well as other online stores.


For Your Face

Every shave is important; we trust you’ll already have found the razor of your dreams that works harmoniously with your skin. Now you’ve got that under wraps it’s time to consider other care.  Your skin is more prone to breakouts, razor burn and itching after an eventful month of food and alcohol.

The natural balance of your skin may be a little off the scale – for this we of course recommend man’s best friend – water. Keeping hydrated can help maintain a healthy glow and give your skin that revival it may need. In the long run a hydrated body is a happy body, one that can repair and rejuvenate skin whilst it sleeps.

We recommend two grooming products that will change your shaving experience forever:

Pre-shave – Jack Black Face Buff Energising Scrub

Perfect your blank canvas with this energising scrub from Jack Black. The gentle and effective scrub grains will lift away dead skin cells leaving skin feeling smoother and clearer. Ultimately this will result in a closer, fresher shave.


Post-shave – MenScience Post Shave Repair

This product provides a gentle but effective formulation that helps to heal, repair and improve skin condition after shaving.This is an alcohol and oil free formula and so its great for all skin types – including sensitive or stressed skin. Using this product as a toner will provide relief from razor burn, unblock pores and calm, soften and refresh. (more…)

Braun, which is a company that has been making personal grooming devices for years, has come up with a new collection of shavers and trimmers called the Cruzer, which is a system for the grooming needs of a man who takes hair very, very seriously. Again, their target man requires more versatility from his shaver to accentuate the definition of his modern hairstyles and facial hair. We had the chance to try out the Face version on a dude seeking a manly yet nuanced beard.
