In the last instalment of our Dream Teams Series, we’re excited to introduce you to AFC Grooming, selected from the talent pool of our dream team of grooming superstars. With a fantastic range of products designed to cater to your every grooming need, check out the AFC Grooming starting lineup.
The big stopper in the starting pick for AFC Grooming is the Omorovicza Mineral UV Shield with SPF 30. A side that lines up to prioritise defence, AFC Grooming understands the importance of keeping the skin strong, healthy, and supple in creating a truly great overall look. For this reason, when above all else on this moisturising, nourishing SPF.

The defensive line for AFC Grooming is made up of four essential skincare products. In full back we have Anthony Shave Cream and Baxter of London After Shave Balm, two sturdy, dependable shaving products which will guarantee you a smooth shave and skin protection. In the centre, we have Menscience Microfine Face Scrub, an exfoliating product which will give you the freedom to play out from the back, and the Aesop B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel, an industrious and composed daily wear product which can be applied after cleansing to protect the skin from breakouts.
In our midfield three we have the Lab Series Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 screening the defence, a true hard-grafting product which covers your skin’s moisturising and blemish covering needs, while also offering sun protection which you can reapply throughout the day when needed. With license to roam and link the play, we have the Stoer Eye Serum and American Crew Classic Daily Moisturising Shampoo. While the shampoo specialises in setting up the attacking line, the antioxidant rich eye serum is alert to any threats.
Our front three are made up of products which love causing danger in the final third. Michael Kors Extreme Speed is pacy and always makes their presence known, Hanz De Fuko Claymation is a high impact player with great hold up play, who links up perfectly with Hanz De Fuko Style Lock Hair Spray, a pin-point finisher.
