When it comes to general etiquette, style and grooming advice, I’d suggest going with anything stemming from Mr Porter HQ. For winter their team of experts worked to create the ultimate grooming kit – thereby ensuring the overall health and happiness of your skin and hair! The recently sold-out box contains thirteen essentials, each briefly outlined below and still available individually via Mr Porter’s apothecary:
1.) Dr Jackson’s No. 3 Face Oil: a nourishing herbal oil derived from natural ingredients that works to boost elasticity and improve overall skin tone.
2.) Penhaligon’s Bayolea Deodorant: a bright blend of mandarin, lemongrass and tangerine is fused with notes of cardamom, neroli and black pepper. The ultimate underarm upgrade…
3.) Escentric Molecules 03 Body Wash: Egyptian jasmine, amber and hints of peppercorn invigorate, moisturize and cleanse the skin leaving it / you feeling fresh and clean.
4.) Blind Barber 90 Proof Hair Pomade: the award-winning, protein rich formula that ensures a strong hold and matte finish.
5.) Ren Skincare Rinse Flash 1 Minute Facial: a gentle exfoliant containing a potent blend of water-activated vitamin C that works to even skin, smooth lines and reduce visible signs of fatigue.
6.) Pankhurst London Head To Toe Shampoo: a rich rum and lime-scented head and body cleanser created with efficiency in mind.
7.) Czech & Speake No.88 Hand Soap: a foaming hand soap scented with an uplifting blend of bergamot, sandalwood and geranium.
8.) M. E. Skinlab Bio-Lifting Cell Restoring Mask: ideal for quick boosts, this petrochemical and paraben-free mask is formulated with calendula extract and soothing lettuce balms. It also reminds me of Patrick Bateman’s grooming routine.
9.) Erno Laszlo Firmarine Bar: a refreshing and invigorating facial soap bar containing spirulina extract, which works to lift oil and impurities with ease.
10.) Baxter of California Super Close Shave Formula: a thick, whipped foam that provides exceptional glide and protection between you and your blade.
11.) Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Serum: a nourishing formula infused with vitamin C and palm oil that boosts collagen production, resulting in smooth and supple skin.
12.) Bamford Grooming Department Exfoliating Face Wash: an exfoliating face wash formulated using ginger, charcoal, black rice and quartz, that removes dead skin and debris in one fell swoop.
13.) Malin + Goetz Sage Styling Cream: a residue-free salve that creates a firm yet natural looking hold.
