Many of us are guilty of not paying enough attention to our grooming routines. For 2019, take a leaf out of Patrick Bateman’s book and devise a routine that’s perfect for you. There are a few grooming products that every man needs, the baseline of the bathroom cupboard. We’ve rounded up 5 essential grooming products for the modern man.
A Luxurious Soap
Take it back to the old school, they were right – soap trumps shower gel. Not only is it one less plastic bottle cluttering your bathroom, soap lasts longer because there’s much less room for excess usage. When it comes to soap, Feldspar are flying the flag high. We recommend the 100% natural Moor Soap, it’s fresh, rounded and is designed to naturally exfoliate and stimulate circulation. Where other soaps dry your skin, Feldspar soaps are the best moisturising and cleansing natural soaps around.
A Do It-All Moisturiser
If you take one thing on board from this article, let it be the importance of moisturising. With a wealth of advantages like anti-ageing, it’s a wonder that we’re not all moisturising. Any moisturiser is good, but Marram Co Medium Moisturiser is better. Marram Co pride themselves on using no parabens, artificial chemicals, nothing synthetic at all. More than that, the natural ingredients used are all hand-picked from organic farms across the world. Moisturise after showers and shaves to keep your skin looking hydrated and healthy.
A Fresh New Scent
Smell is one of the most memorable senses. Have you ever smelt something and it instantly transported you back to a memory? Maybe it was a time or a place? Now it can be you. Be the man that is remembered as the one who smelt great. New to the site, Salle Privée’s Le Temps Perdu Eau De Parfum is our selection for the aftershave you need in 2019. Fresh and warm with a distinctive rawness to it, Le Temps Perdu is a mature scent with depth – aftershave done well.

Think About The Post-Shave
Your skin goes through a lot when you shave, especially if you’re not using sharp razors. A great way of ensuring your skin comes out feeling upgraded is by applying a post-shave balm. Post-shave balms are intensely cooling and soothing mixtures that moisturise and protect strained skin. After rinsing your skin, dry gently and apply some L:A Bruket Aftershave Balm, you’ll never look back.
The Perfect Pomade
When it comes to hair products, there’s no one-size fits all solution, but you still need one that you can rely on. That’s why suggest a water-based pomade like Baxter of California’s Hard Water hair product. It’s an easy win for long and short styles due to its natural and hold and it can also be easily layered with other products for different holds and finishes. Best of all, unlike oil-based pomades, you can wash out the pomade with just water.
