BEARD TOOLS

Tools aren’t just for the shed, they’re also absolutely essential to perfecting your dream Movember do.

From shaving creams to premium razors, having the perfect set of tools is an essential part of sculpting the perfect beard or moustache shape.

Whether you’re going for a nonchalant beard moment, or a tight and clean moustache – there’s a perfect facial kit for you.

The essential first step to any shaving and sculpting process has to be a calming and protective shaving cream or gel.

For this, Hunter’s Cleansing Shaving Foam is just the thing! Not only does it prep and protect the skin, but also provides a great deal of razor relief so you’re all set from start to finish.

In terms of razors, the variety of hand held, single blade, electronic and innovative types out there can be exhausting.

For a product, able to product the perfect close shave and look amazing on your bathroom bench, opt for Bolin Webb’s R1 Mach3 Cartridge Razor and Stand Shaving Set.

Designed with a soft-grip handle, the razor glides across your skin comfortably and comes complete with a nifty ‘Gravity’ stand to keep it upright.

SERUMS

No longer only for the women in your life, our versatile range of serums are sure to add an extra boost to your skin care regime.

From intense reparative night-time serums, to lightweight and moisturising day formulas, a specialised serum is just what you need in your daily skin care routine.

Address a specific skin need no matter how big or small, from total facial revival and moisture maintenance to spot correction, with a targeted serum.

For something moisturising and great for all skin types, try out Joanna Vargas’ Rejuvenating Serum for size.

The lightweight serum is great for reducing any dullness, fine lines, and wrinkles you may have started noticing all by harnessing the powers of rosehip oil, argan oil, and jojoba oil.

With shaving in mind, Aesop have developed a simple, do-it-all shaving serum that does more than protect the skin mid sculpt.

Formulated with a blend of gentle hydrating Neroli Blossom and anti-inflammatory Aloe Vera, this serum ensures a perfect shave while calming and moisturising the skin. A true all in one product!

SPF

All the skincare in the world won’t measure up to the incredible benefit of wearing sunscreen daily.

Not only is SPF the industry’s best trick to preventing free radical damage and skin cancer, but many sunscreens now on the market can help moisturise and even out skin tone too.

For the best protection, aim for 30 to 50+ SPF rating to ensure you’re getting the most out of your sunscreen.

From sprays, to gels, to fluids, source your UV protection in your preferred form – either mix it in with your creams or apply it on top for ease of application and wear.

Try out SALT & STONE’s Natural Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 as a great everyday option.

The water-resistant formula is proven to protect, smooth, and moisturise skin with UVA and UVB protection with help from ashwagandha, hyaluronic acid, and green tea extract.

For something a little more luxurious, try mixing Dr. Barbara Sturm‘s ‘Sun Drops’ into your regular face moisturiser.

The light serum offers SPF50 protection with a balanced combination of UVA and UVB filters and is packed with Cassia Alata Leaf Extract, Beta-Glucan and Vitamin E.

MOISTURISERS

If moisturiser isn’t in your daily routine, what are you doing?

Compliment your facial hair with soft, supple and glowing skin thanks to our selection of easy to apply and comfortably formulated day creams.

Start with something nourishing with Aesop’s Perfect Facial Hydrating Cream.

The versatile product is great for hydrating and softening skin thanks to vitamin E, vitamin C, and frankincense.

For the enviro-conscious, HUMANRACE’s refillable products are not only sustainable, but also highly effective.

Save your face and the planet too with their hydrating and nourishing Humidifying Cream.

With snow mushroom, squalene, hyaluronic acid and tiger leaf extract, this do-it-all moisture booster is just what you need for optimum skin.

For a step above the rest, invest in La Mer’s Créme de la Mer for a truly luxurious hydrating experience.
