Launches in the men’s grooming are infrequent- a far cry from the women’s market where new releases appear daily. October however, has seen a plethora of newness and goodness. Below we’ve picked three of the best individual releases from existing brands; Lab Series, Myego and Baxter of California. We also have on the The Shelf the new Advanced Renewal Cream from Malin+Goetz, with a review to follow. And finally, the launch of SCRUBD, an entirely new offering from the UK.
Mýego Ten to Seven Face Wash
Made with a blend of Green Tea, crushed Grapefruit, French clay and a hint of Bergamot to gently cleanse away impurities. It’s designed to detox and cleanse skin from daily pollution and dirt keeping your face feeling fresh. We know the guys at Mýego and they agonise over every detail- so whatever they release, it’s always good. Ten to Seven is non-lathering but still, it throughly cleanses and refreshes, and feels great on the skin.
£17/ 100ml from MYEGO
LAB SERIES Solid Water Essence
Fight the look of fatigue. Fuel hydration. Wake up tired-looking skin. Sound good? This is the promise of LAB SERIES’ Solid Water Essence- a gel-to-liquid boost of energy. The theory- 30-40% of skin’s energy is used to pump hydration to the skin- so, if you can energise skin on a cellular level, you can optimise its hydration. Solid Water Essence contains energising Ginseng and invigorating Caffeine, which are proven to help energise skin cells. And they get delivered via Bamboo-infused micro-droplets for rapid absorption. Plus, it’s packed with antioxidants to fight free radicals and help prevent visible signs of ageing.
£39/ 150ml from JOHN LEWIS
Baxter of California Clay Effect Style Spray
New from our friends in California- this multipurpose texturing spray with a strong hold and texture-rich finish. Clay Effect Style Spray adds thickness to hairstyles for that dry, gritty, lived-in, worked-through look. It’s also good for your hair with castor and jojoba oil that provide vitamins and nutrients for thinning hair, along with the benefits of green tea extract containing antioxidants. Use when blow-drying hair, with one of your pomades, or on its own. It’s like Bumble and bumble Surf Spray but with more hold.
£27/ 120ml from THE GROOMING CLINIC
