So you’ve had your eye on the girl (or guy) of your dreams for ages and you’ve FINALLY secured a date for Valentine’s Day… Now to make sure that you look the part to keep them keen!
If you’re starting to wonder how to scrub up well on your Valentine’s Day date, then let Mankind lead the way. We have plenty of products that will get you looking sharp for date night, and we’ve put together a list of 5 top male grooming tips to get you started…
The bed head look might work when you’re going out for a casual coffee, but this is Valentine’s Day, and your date isn’t going to settle for minimum effort. Luckily, here at Mankind we stock some of the very best hair products for men! Even if you have long hair that is difficult to tame, it’ll be worth the struggle – just use some Lock Stock & Barrel Recharge Conditioning Hair Wash to detangle your wild mane. Now comes the fun part… no matter your hair type or length, you can always find a product to style it. Try out some of the tools that Hanz de Fuko has to offer, in particular the Quicksand hair clay – this styler promises high hold and a dry-matte finish, so that you can spike up, slick back or sweep across your hair as you please.
Your skin in particular is an area that you may want to start targeting in advance, and we have a great range of men’s skin care products here at Mankind. Your date will be focused on your face whilst you chat throughout the evening, so you’d better make sure it’s looking smooth! A good exfoliating face wash is a solid place to start, and it doesn’t get much better than Nickel Super Clean Face Scrub Gel when it comes to cleansing the skin and removing dead cells. The key to soft skin is finishing off with a quality moisturiser – why not try Bulldog Original Moisturiser to hydrate and smooth your skin? If your skin needs some special treatment, then don’t despair; they offer a Sensitive Moisturiser and an Anti-Aging Moisturiser too.
Even if you proudly boast a beard, it might not be the first thing that you think of when it comes to male grooming tips. However, if you aren’t going for a full shave this Valentine’s Day then it’s important to keep facial hair fly-aways at bay on your date. The best way to do this is with some serious preparation thanks to beard grooming products from Mankind. No matter your beard length, you can use Billy Jealousy Beard Wash to clean and nourish your bristles so that you look refreshed rather than rough. Longer beards would benefit from a helping of Billy Jealousy Beard Control as well to make sure that those hairs are as soft as possible when your date leans in for an end-of-the-evening smooch.
A good scent can be the perfect accessory to any man’s outfit and can instantly make you come across as more attractive, and you can pick up a great men’s fragrance at Mankind. Whilst you don’t want the fragrance to be overpowering, a subtle sniff can be a game changer, and is an absolute must when it comes to male grooming this Valentine’s Day. Try out the American Crew Nine Fragrance – this blend of tempting spice and sanctifying citrus scents will make your date hold on a little bit longer when you go in for a cheeky hug!
Hold open doors, return your date’s questions and smile at all times – you can even glisten up your grin in advance with iWhite Instant Teeth Whitening Toothpaste!

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move.
