Valentine’s Day is just days away, and if you love, hate or are indifferent about it, the occasion is the day to celebrate and spoil someone you love. But, if your man is hard to shop for, and you're finding yourself stuck for ideas, we’re here to ease your troubles. From Chanel to Hunter Lab, we’ve rounded up the most irresistible beauty buys for men that they'll actually use...
Zoe Foster-Blake has been building a little empire with her Go-To beauty brand, and the piece of the puzzle, naturally, is a men’s range., aptly named, Bro-To. Our favourite product is the Properly Clean, specifically designed for male skin (it’s actually a derma no-no for them to use our products…). This bad boy will kick start cell renewal, and create a radiance for his complexion – something the fellas have been missing out on for far too long.
Chanel Bleu De Chanel is so damn sexy, you might find yourself stealing some of this for your own. He’ll experience a fresh clean sensual scent with a striking balance of citrus, woods and resolutely innovative elements. To top it off, the scent is now available in a practical travel spray – perfect for fellas on the go, that can be easily be slipped into a travel and sports bag.
Here’s a fun fact – as with us, men have different skin tones, hormone levels and textures (obviously, but it’s a fact that is so under represented in beauty) so it’s important that they purchase their own skincare products. If you’re on the hunt for men’s moisturiser that won’t break the bank, look no further than Milk by Michael Klim. The ex-Olympian has created the quintessential male skincare range– created and tested by the man himself. We’re loving the Face Moistursier -packed with a bunch of proactive ingredients, it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and protected, day and night.
A favourite of Mr Beckham, this water-based wax can be used to thicken your man’s hair and give the ultimate hold. Whether he’s aiming for a smooth ‘do or heavily textured style, this product will do the job and goes on clean, no residue. He’ll love you even more when you tell him it requires minimal effort – he simply needs to rub a dollar coin amount between his fingertips, then work through damp or dry hair to achieve polished to piece-y looks.
For founders Matt Gillman and former L’Oreal Australia Managing Director Mark Tucker, their mission was simple – “Make The World More Handsome.” So, the aptly named, The Handsome Shower Pack – which includes Handsome 2-in-1 Shampoo and Body Wash – is the ultimate gift for your boo. It’s also packaged in a custom made Handsome box that is perfect for a V Day gifting.
This luxurious multi-purpose lotion is made up of a blend of tangerine and grapefruit essential oils, topped off with the perfect subtle hint of caramel and vanilla. His skin will feel instantly restored and baby’s bum smooth. Plus, the modern matte black packaging will sit perfectly in your bathroom. Major win.
