Even though clothes can “make the man”, grooming is an important part of the total look. You can have the most updated, expensive wardrobe, but if your grooming products are not of good quality and you don’t put equal weight on your hair and face, then you are not looking as good as you can. At Uppercut Deluxe Shop, you will find a range of natural hair care, shaving, and styling products to keep you in tip-top shape.
Since cleansing and conditioning is the first step to great looking hair and skin, Uppercut has an Essentials Wash Kit that contains a set of natural shampoo and conditioner, combined with a bar of goat’s milk soap and of course, a black pocket comb for $36.64.
The next step in a good looking face is shaving, unless you have opted for the bearded look and even then you need to neaten it up around the edges. At Uppercut Delux they have an all natural shaving cream for $15 with menthol and coconut oil, to be followed by the “Aftershave Moisturizer” that will keep skin smooth, soft, and shrink up the pores. Just make sure that you invest in a good razor to get the “barbershop-like” results.
Lastly, in order to complete the look, hair styling is key. At www.uppercutdeluxeshop.com, they have a selection of hair styling products, whether you need a little taming of “not going anywhere” hair. This chart will help you determine which product is right for you and the prices range from $12-$18. One celebrity who could use the “Monster Hold” styling paste, if he doesn’t already, is Bruno Mars. His high piled style would stay up where he needs it and is sweat resistant for performing in any venue.
‘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.
When the weather turns cooler, the beginning of fall is signaled. This also means that it is time to do away with the clean-shaven looks of summer, and embrace a few of the latest trends in facial hair styling. This fall season, a variety of styles are in that will suit any man’s personality and personal style. However, it is important to remember that the cooler, drier air of fall also means that it is time to step up the shaving regimen to include techniques that will help to keep skin in top condition well into the colder seasons. For any man who is looking to add some flair to his shaving routine, the following tips are offered to help create a unique look while keeping skin soft and moisturized.
Like I’ve said a million times before, fashion is about more than the clothes you wear. Neglect your face the proper attention, whether by using inferior skincare products or shaving materials, and you’ll regret the rough skin and splotchy complexion. I recently received a kit of shaving cream, face scrub lotion, and moisturizer from the Liz Earle Naturally Active line and, as you can tell, I was more than willing to scrutinize.
