Every year Men’s Health magazine asks its readers to vote for their favourite grooming products. Thousands of ordinary blokes vote and so I always think of the winners and ‘highly commendeds’ as being a good gauge of what’s hot out there at the moment, grooming-wise. And this year, a raft of products stocked here on Mankind received prestigious gongs or were esteemed runners up so if you’re looking for award-winning grooming how about including some of these in your daily routine?

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. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
