MAINTAIN YOUR MANE

There was a time when men who spent too long ”doing” their hair were met with a certain degree of mockery or suspicion. Thankfully times have changed, but now it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the influx of hair care products on the market. And the right hair product can make all the difference.

Hair products for men today have come a long way since the wet-look gels of the eighties, so make sure you’re clued up on what each product does. Thicker hair and messy styles can handle waxes and pomades, but if your hair’s thinner, then lighter products and sprays will give your mane some staying power.

Lock, Stock & Barrel offers a terrific selection of quality men’s hair products – from shampoos to hair treatments plus all the styling agents you could possibly need to achieve those runway coifs!

Grooming: FACIAL OIL | KIEHL’S MIDNIGHT RECOVERY

OIL: WHY YOU NEED IT

The best way to think of facial oil is as a turbo boost for your existing routine. They’re concentrated products, so they’re ideal if you’re looking to problem-solve something specific like ageing, post-shave damage, dehydration, etc.

Oil also has a much smaller molecular structure than a cream, which means it’s going to penetrate deeper into the skin and hence more likely to do something worthwhile at a cellular level.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, a rich and luxurious blend of essential oils and botanicals including lavender oil, evening primrose oil and olive-derived squalane, is designed to enhance your skin’s natural nightly recovery process, restoring tone and vitality.

It’s also not overly scented and surprisingly – doesn’t leave skin looking oily.

A SCENT OF ADVENTURE

HUGO Parfums unveils the next chapter of its #YourTimeIsNow campaign with a new limited edition scent – HUGO Urban Journey – a refreshingly energizing, woody and aromatic take on its original scent Hugo for Men.

Loaded with uplifting floral and green notes, Urban Journey first smells modern, clean and invigorating before intensifying with the aromatic and gritty notes of black tea. Warm and woody Guaiac wood and sandalwood complete the scent giving it a refined and confident finish. The juice is captured in HUGO’s iconic, minimalist flask-shaped bottle, this time with a unique concrete-like finish.

With every spray you’ll be inspired to get out there and find adventure – even in your own city!

Fashion: DIESEL | IRONIC NEW SUMMER CAMPAIGN

Written by | Found in: Fashion News | Posted on: 9 Jul 2018 - 3:29 pm

READY TO UNWEAR

Here’s something to get you through the gloom of winter – Diesel recently announced the debut of its latest summer campaign, titled “Ready To Unwear”, which promotes the idea that, during the summer, less equals more.

The thinking behind this ironic moniker, inverting the common fashion industry phrase of “ready to wear” – is that summer’s best memories are often experienced in varying degrees of undress. The campaign also celebrates and promotes anti-conformity and a personal choice to never ride the tide, to put something on, but not be afraid to take it off either.

Subverting the norm, the new Diesel “Ready to Unwear” campaign is the ironic celebration that less is more. Much more!

TREAT YOUR BEARD RIGHT

With the cold weather now in full force it’s time to protect your facial hair. As the seasons change bringing about new environmental conditions, so do our beards.

These grooming tips will help you stay on top of your beard care game in order to ensure it stays gloriously glossy through the colder months.
