GROOMING TIPS

5 STAFF GROOMING FAVOURITES

By Matt Glazebrook, 12 January 2019

With an increasingly wide, not to say bewildering, range of new Face + Body brands and products aimed at men, a recommendation from a friend is a great place to start your grooming exploration. But, in case you aren’t quite at ‘what serum do you use’ levels of pub chat, we’ve asked the guys at ASOS HQ to spill the beans on their own wash-bag essentials.

For your skin to handle the colder climes of winter, your moisturiser game will need to be strong. So, for me, this is a lifesaver from Clinique. Designed specifically for guys, it not only boasts a lightweight formula but also strengthens the skin with sunflower seed, barley and cucumber extracts (obviously). Plus, it’s mattifying qualities will keep your face from shining like a disco ball on a night out. Nice one.

Warren, Junior Fashion Editor

I use this ELEMIS cleansing balm morning and night – it’s invigorating enough to wake you up and soothing enough to wash away the day before bed. It’s got a rich, smooth consistency that really leaves your face feeling super clean, fresh and ready for toner. Top tip: leave it on for an extra five mins whilst you brush your teeth/catch up on Instagram for an extra special treat every other night.

This might not be the most conventional product, but I’ve gone for the Sand And Sky Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment. I think it's important to take care of your skin and this cult Aussie brand has gone a long way with helping me have clearer and healthier skin after struggling with acne in my younger years.

Sand And Sky Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment, £34.99

I suffer with puffy eyes in the morning, so I'm all for any way of pretending that I've had eight hours of sleep. This Clinique eye roll-on absorbs quickly and features a lovely cooling effect (with a shot of caffeine) to hydrate and brighten the eye area. Ideal.

Matt, Senior Editor

I’m not a big hair product guy, but everyone needs a little extra hold and texture now and again. This Hanz de Fuko wax fits the 'product but doesn't feel like product' bill – from its slick, low-key graphics and diminutive packaging, to its non-sticky matte finish and unthreatening, organic-focused ingredients list. It’s strong stuff, too, so you only need to use a tiny amount to keep everything (subtly) in check.
