Modern Man Grooming Essentials

•••
Guys aren't big fans of elaborate routines, other than a classic barber shaving revival there's very little effort going into the grooming bit of life. A sharp suit, polished shoes, great haircut and impeccable taste can all be bought or aquired over time -guess who binge watched suits the past weekend-, but I couldn't help but notice while many guys can dre[...]

I'm more than willing to invest, but frankly most of us just don't have the time. Avène Phys[...]

Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Morning Eye Rescue

Morning Eye Rescue is a refreshing sorbet like treat that calms redness and provides hydration, no surprise[...]

A-Derma Moisturizing Body Lotion

•••
Man I hate nothing more than a sticky bodylotion that takes ages to sink in if at all, usually the reason why I cannot be bothered using lotion after a shower. A-Derma Moisturizing Body Lotion is a brilliant move in the right direction with sunscreen's dry touch technology applied to bodylotion. Don't you want hydration without a sticky feeling afterwards? [...]

As with all their intense colognes, the Jo Malone Orris Sandalwood Cologne Intense is one that lingers on the skin for hours, gently fading and pulling in for a warm embrace over the course of a day.

We're not usually the ones that complicate things, especially in our weekend routines where it's all about comfy sweatpants and lounging around the houes, life in slow motion. Being quite dilligent during the weekend with workouts, diet, work and tight scheduled personal life.. my weekends call for a simplistic approach to take the pressure off. The bare ess[...]

Garancia Diabolique Tomate Water Cream

•••
You know the feeling of dull looking and pulled tight as a drum skin. It usually shows up in the morning after not applying the right amount of hydration, but it can really strike at any time during the day.
