Body hair has always been a point of contention in the men’s grooming arena – is it okay for a man to reveal his hairy back on the beach, should he wax his chest? One thing we can all agree on, waxing your hair feet is acceptable. Maybe you’re a sportsman, a swimmer or cyclist perhaps – and benefit from a hairless torso. Vanity or function, there’s no right or... Read More

There are very few brands which have or are capable of changing an industry. Apple changed the face of the music industry with the iPod and iTunes, Facebook altered how the world socialises and interacts, and Starbucks reinvented the coffee shop.

Braun WaterFlex

The release of the Braun WaterFlex electric shaver signals an intent to cross the boundaries of wet shaving with electric shaving. The benefits of a wet shave; using a protective foam, gel or cream with a badger hair brush and a sharp blade are notable.
