Grooming Essentials For Every Man On The Move


Lads, this one is for you.

Just like you wouldn’t pack the same suitcase for every trip, we think there’s merit in curating your wash bag too.

After all, isn’t it about time you thought beyond chucking a toothbrush and a travel-sized toothpaste into one of those flimsy Ziploc bags? So, whether you’re off to Amsterdam for a romantic city break, or flying to Singapore to secure that business deal, we’ve got the hero products you need to pick up at duty free.


The Beach Holiday

For a sunny getaway, hydration becomes your main priority. We’d recommend using a blueberry-sized blob of Shiseido Men Hydro Master Gel on your face after shaving to keen your visage soft, even after a day on the beach. The handy two-in-one Clarins Men Shampoo & Shower, which cleanses without stripping your skin of oils, is great for saving space too.

The Business Trip

So you look the part of the hotshot businessman, now smell the part too. Calvin Klein Obsessed For Men is a reinvention of the classic scent, tapping into the nineties vibe that’s so hot right now. It features zingy notes of grapefruit, black cardamom, and Sichuan pepper. Your other secret weapon is the Nuxe Crème Fraîche de Beauté Moisturising Quenching Serum 48H, which will keep you fresh-faced after your third client dinner in a row.

The City Break

A weekend away calls for streamlined, simple skincare that you can just apply quickly and then be on your way. In the morning, wash your face and then use the Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate as a serum under a layer of Clarins Men Super Moisture Gel. This routine not only locks in moisture, it also contains ingredients that act as a barrier for the skin to protect against all that urban pollution.
