2. FIT Skincare – Moisturising Ultra Serum: £50
It’s no secret that male grooming is on the rise and that men are investing more and more in their skincare regimes, waking up to the fact that a little investment now will pay future dividends.
FIT Skincare have developed a scientifically advanced luxury skin and hair care range using the latest advance in formulation technologies combined with the highest quality natural ingredients. Together they intensely hydrate, repair and refresh male skin and hair.
Especially worthy of note is that all of the range are serums. Being serums they contain a higher concentration of active ingredients and hydrating agents than a regular cream and their lightweight small molecules are quickly absorbed deep into the skin to act faster and work for longer.
As you might expect FIT Moisturising Ultra Serum is packed with natural active ingredients to repair, protect and refresh men’s skin. Amino acids (peptides) hydrate, tone and aid damage repair whilst botanical extracts get to work reducing the appearance of (and working to prevent) fine lines. Caffeine steps up to reduce the appearance of dark circles & puffiness under eyes whilst Hyaluronic acid delivers intense hydration.

Not only will your hair be the envy of your friends but your tool will too as the ER-GB80 is one of the coolest and most convenient must-haves for men.

5. Bluebeards Revenge Cooling Moisturiser
This Cooling Moisturiser is packed with a whole host of manly-sounding ingredients to hydrate and soothe the skin after a long, hard day’s work.
Not nearly as vicious as they sound, extracts of prickly pear, stinging nettle and fenugreek are highly regarded for their moisturising qualities, as well as their abilities to calm and re-invigorate the skin.
The moisturiser’s main active ingredient jojoba is a wax ester known to be incredibly similar to the natural oils created by our own skin, and applied topically, helps to prevent excessive greasiness and unwanted outbreaks of irritation.
