Mankind are excited to introduce to you our First XI. Picked from our dream team of superstars these products make up an outstanding grooming routine. With everything you need to take care of your skin, hair, body, beard and scent, this is the team we’re backing to go far. Check out our starting lineup.
Between the sticks we have Omorovicza’s Deep Cleansing Mask. Even with the best defence, if the keeper is tested you want to be sure you can fall back on a product that will stand up to the challenge. And the Deep Cleansing Mask does just that. Used once or twice a week, you’ll be thoroughly cleansed and your pores will be unblocked, leaving your skin brightened and rejuvenated.
At the heart of the 3-man defence is the steadfast anti-ageing moisturiser La Potion Infinie from ARgENTUM. A true Rolls Royce centre back, it’s strong, reliable, and always has you covered. Joined by the Future Rescue Repair Serum from Lab Series and Anthony’s Exfoliating Cleansing Bar, these are your daily defensive essentials which will protect your skin from anything the opposition has to throw at it.
Totally clean shaven or with facial hair, you should be able to rely on a good set of shaving and grooming products, whichever side you choose to go down. For this reason, we’ve picked two shaving products which are both nimble, light-footed, and reliable: the Jack Black Double Edge Safety Razor, and the Philips Series 9000 Wet and Dry Electric Shaver.
Tasked with defensive duties in the midfield, the Lock Stock & Barrel Prep Tonic Thickening Spray is a dependable pre-styler, which you can bank perfectly prep your hair for styling. The Lab Series Pro All in One Face Treatment is a box-to-box product, a perfect addition to a travel bag, gym kit, or to have on hand for a refresh in work. In an attacking no. 10 role, we have Calvin Klein’s Obsessed Intense for Men, a fragrance which is guaranteed to make an impact when you need it the most.
In attack, we have the products that can be counted upon to convert under pressure. The Clinique Sonic Purifying Cleansing Brush makes the critical difference to your complexion, whereas American Crew Fibre will make sure your hair hits the back of the net.
Ready to be called on when needed, we have Bean Body Coffee Scrub, a body exfoliator which you can be certain will perform when you bring it off the bench (or bathroom shelf). As well as this, we have the Lock Stock and 85 Karats Grooming Clay, a flexible hold, natural (low-medium) shine styler which is the perfect substitute for American Crew when you need to switch up your style of play.

Whether it is the latest fashion trends or hairstyles, you can be sure that I will be here to keep you up-to-date.
