D.R Harris

To begin, we have D.R Harris Skincare. Founded in 1790, the brand combines the traditional apothecary with today's mans modern needs. Founders Henry Harris and Daniel Rotely definitely knew a thing or two about how to get the best out of your appearance as there specialist products gained some well deserved attention from royalty. In fact, the skincare brand was awarded the warrant as chemists to The Queen, The Queen's Mother and The Prince of Wales, so if it's good enough for them, it's definitely worth shouting about.

The classic designed packaging holds an array of timeless skincare pieces including soaps, shaving creams, lip balms and accessories. The list goes on to include some signature scents that are featured throughout many of the the shaving creams, body washes and shampoos. The Arlington Cologne has a zesty and uplifting aroma that lifts throughout the day. The light notes of Citrus blend and grassy fern creates a contrast within the blend leaving you with a sense of freshness. If this isn't for you and you want to go for a more traditional and timeless smell, their Windsor signature scent of Citrus, Leather, Black Pepper and Vetiver is perfect for you.

Still run by the original founders, Jack Black remove anything that's over complicated to create products that are fit for the style-savvy modern man. Their aim was to get guys into grooming and they have done exactly that.

L:A Bruket

Founded in Sweden by Monica Kylen, L:A Bruket gives us a selection of some of the best all-natural unisex products. The brand keeps things simple with both the ingredients and packaging designs kept minimal. Each product is made to an extremely high quality with a lot of care and detail being taken for every step making each product as good as it can be. This unisex brand will leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed after just the first use of any of their products.

A favourite of ours is the L:A Bruket Face Scrub, this naturally sourced exfoliating treatment contains protecting and nourishing sweet almond oil with an added scent of petitgrain to finish off the goodness. The light mix is absorbed by the skin without leaving you feeling overly saturated, keeping your face and body hydrated throughout the day. As well as products for the body, L:A Bruket offer an organic lip balm that also has the benefits of almond oil. Also included is beeswax and coconut oil meaning the lip balm is the perfect solution to chapped lips this winter.

The simple designs show off that this is an all-natural brand


Recipe For Men

Producing and developing skincare products for men since 2002, this Scandinavian brand have brought a problem solving focus into the world of grooming. Recipe For Men looks for tangible results and visible effects rather than following the latest trends. This is a very modern skincare brand that uses the latest state-of-the-art production to produce their stimulating products with the aim to ensure each individual product keeps what it promises.

Technology isn't something that you immediately associate with skincare but in this day and age its a necessity. With men's core values in mind the quality of their products live up to expectations, one of these products are their cleansers. Our favourite anti-oxidising cleanser contains burnet, cinnamon and ginger which works well to remove your skins excess oil without drying out the skin. If you're not yet ready to add a cleanser into your daily facial routine, Recipe For Men can also assist with any beard and shaving needs with their beard oils and shaving foams.

Baxter Of California

Another modern skincare brand that's risen in the world of grooming is Baxter of California. The brand works to prove that premium doesn't have to be pretentious and that it can actually get the job done with no unnecessary extras or processes. Combining scientific formulas with natural, high quality ingredients is what makes their products the only essentials you need for your hair, skin and shaving routines.

With the basis of the products based on counteracting the effects of the sun and heat on your skin, Baxter of California have products that range from oil free moisturisers to hair pomades. The brand explores how each of your grooming products should show who you are and portray your own signature statement, so when choosing your grooming products it may be more personal than you initially think. The Baxter of California grooming lotion gives your hair a shiny, light hold that will last all day. The hard cream pomade on the other hand works well for medium to think hair as it has a super strong hold that'll keep all styles in place.
