‘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…)

Christmas is on its way and 2012 is drawing to a close so I thought we would look at some of trends we have seen this year and what the celebrities and movers and shakers of the fashion world have been up to!
UK Style Icon
The female fashion press has been dominated by one woman this year and that was Kate Middleton as she wowed crowds wherever she went with her mixture of high street fashion and top end designers.
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.
