Male Grooming | March 2015 Favourites

March was a busy old month for me. I was in Geneva, Paris and Barcelona… and my skin and hair definitely took a beating. 

These were the four products that held me together – physically, mentally and emotionally. Okay, maybe a little extreme, but I am totally rating them!

Fish Soho – Aqua Fish – Shape Defining Wax
I’m a big fan of Fish Soho products, but especially love their Aqua Fish range.
Their Shape Defining Wax is one of four styling products (wax, cream, gum and paste) in their water-based range and gives a fantastic gloss to the perfect slick back.
I particularly love the fact that it’s a salon brand with a high street price (100ml for a £6 tub) and rivals that of its closest competitor – Hanz de Fuko‘s Hybridized Wax.

Ojon – Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment
For those of you who subscribe to me on YouTube, you’ll know that I experiment with loads of different hair products and a lot of heat. As such, it’s really important that I keep my hair strong and healthy.
I’ve been really impressed with Ojon’s Damage Reverse treatment. Warming up a teaspoon of the balm in my hands and applying to dry hair for 20 mins has left my hair feeling soft, and looking noticeably glossier and healthier.
At £19 for 50ml and £34.50 for 100ml, it’s not the cheapest product, but I definitely think that it’s worth the investment.

GlamGlow – ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment
After discovering GlamGlow on a visit to the Mondrian spa, I’ve become somewhat of an advocate for the GlamGlow brand.
With a range of products for all skin types, ThirstyMud is an intensive moisturiser to suit everyone. With slightly greasier skin than most, I often find it difficult to find the correct balance of moisture, without clogging my pores and causing spots. ThirstyMud, however, has worked a treat.
Applying under my eyes just before bed, I’ve woken up looking fresh and rejuvenated. My personal trainer has even commented on how good my skin looks. Result!
At £50 for 50g, it’s definitely not a high street product. The results, however, are insanely good. Worth every penny.
Top tip: use on your face and neck after shaving to sooth sores and minimise redness. 

Zara – Scent #02 EDT
Stood in a rather large queue in a Zara store in Paris, I let my hands do some wandering (and spritzing) next to the checkout.
I was really surprised at how good their own brand fragrances smelled. With a basic range of scents priced at £12.99 each, the 100ml eau de toilette sprays are a no brainer.
Perfect for your gym bag or for keeping in your top drawer at work (is that just me!?), Scent #02 is a sweet yet spicy fragrance with notes of lemon, pineapple, violet, chocolate and vanilla.
