  • GET GROOMED: ALL ABOUT EYES

ALL ABOUT EYES!

If you’re already moisturizing your face, adding a different hydrating agent under your eyes might seem superfluous.

But if you’ve ever used an eye product, whether after a big night out or just a late haul at the office, you probably already know they have their purposes – specifically, in terms of making you look less dogtired. But, with all sorts of formulations (gels, serums, creams, balm), it’s hard to figure out which one to use right?

Wrong. It’s quite simple – the one for you depends on your age, skin type and final goal.

Grooming: MASTER THE SHAVE IN ASSOCIATION WITH EGDARS

MASTER THE SHAVE

Shaving is a fundamental part of being a man. A welcomed rite of passage into manhood, a tradition passed from father to son. Fair enough. But let’s be honest shaving can sometimes seem more like a chilling surgical procedure rather than the pleasant male ritual it was promised to be.

But many men are guilty of bad shaving habits (if not daily then surely occasionally) that contribute to the unhealthy condition of their skin. Old blades, poor prep and shaving with cheap foam or worse yet soap wreak havoc on the skin resulting in painful and unsightly razor burn, bumps and inflammation.

  • JOSH WHITEHOUSE ANNOUNCED THE FACE OF NEW MR. BURBERRY EDP FRAGRANCE
  • MR. BURBERRY EDP 150ML R2000.00, EDP 100ML R1650.00 AND EDP 50ML R1170.00 SELECTED RETAILERS

INTRODUCING MR.BURBERRY EDP

Mr. Burberry Eau de Parfum, is a deeper, more sensual interpretation of the iconic Mr. Burberry Eau de Toilette. This new release, the collaboration between Burberry’s Chief Creative, Christopher Bailey, and perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, takes inspiration from the brand’s iconic black trench coat and London city at night.

It opens up with zesty notes of grapefruit, tarragon and cardamom, but quickly dries down to a sensual finish of birch leaf and vetiver . The bottle also gets the dressed-up Trenchcoat treatment, with a heavy cap reminiscent of horn buttons and a hand-tied knot in black gabardine the same fabric the iconic Burberry tench is made from.

But the Mr.Burberry story doesn’t end here. Three new limited-edition grooming products – Aftershave Balm, Face Scrub and Hair and Beard Clay – are added to the existing collection, each lightly infused with the scent of Mr. Burberry.

The face (or neck?) of the campaign is rising star Josh Whitehouse, chosen by Christopher Bailey and renowned for his role in 2014’s Northern Soul.
