As August 16th this year is National Men’s Grooming Day, we’re celebrating by dedicating the month of August to the best of the best male grooming essentials on Mankind. In this instalment, we’re covering the Best in Body Care for Men. Read more below.
You can’t have body care without a body lotion, and the Cool Moisture Body Lotion from Jack Black is one of our all-time favourites.
Lightweight and rapidly absorbed, it ensures your skin is firmed and hydrated without leaving residue, and its subtle cooling effect calms and soothes skin. Used after a workout, it’s a godsend.
When it comes to body care, we’re huge believers in time-saving, multi-faceted products. The House 99 Polish Up Body and Hair Wash not only saves space in your gym bag or suitcase, but uses the brand’s signature blend of superfoods Spirulina and Quinoa to cleanse and protect the skin. An absolute must-try.
An exfoliating soap bar is perhaps the most effective way to get the most out of your body care routine. Helping to combat blemishes, unblock your pores, and leave your skin smooth and supple, the Anthony Exfoliating & Cleansing Bar uses Jojoba Spheres to exfoliate, and Cucumber Extract and Grapefruit to restore and soothe the skin. Coconut Oil and Shea Butter combine in the soap bar to ensure your skin is moisturised and conditioned throughout the exfoliating process.
Its bold and distinctive unisex scent is what makes the Molton Brown Geranium Nefertum Bath and Shower Gel stand out, but its luxuriousness and richness secures its position on the Best in Body Care for Men rundown. Light and refreshing notes such as Fig Leaf Accord, blend with Labdanum and Sandalwood to produce its alluring fragrance, which is a dedication to Nefertum, the Egyptian God of Perfume. Place directly beneath running bath water to use as an invigorating bath foam, or alternatively use as a body wash.
The Anthony Blue Sea Kelp Body Scrub has been one of team Mankind’s favourites for a long time. The exfoliating power of Sea Salt is harnessed by the scrub, as well as soothing Aloe Vera, protective, anti-bacterial Nutmeg, and antioxidant Sea Kelp Extract.
The Advanced Deodorant from Menscience is a unique product in the world of body care. A scentless deodorant, it uses the power of Microexolites, Witch Hazel, and Tea Tree extract to neutralise bacteria and prevent bad odours, without an overpowering scent. Formulated without irritating ingredients, this hypoallergenic deodorant is fantastic for those with sensitive skin.
The Recipe For Men Alcohol Free Antiperspirant Roll On Deodorant is a more conventional antiperspirant, which prevents dampness, neutralises bad odours, and smells great. Formulated so as to avoid stickiness and staining, it’s extremely comfortable, to boot.
Last on our list of the top body care essentials on Mankind is the Aesop Redemption Body Scrub. A true hero product, the luxurious botanical ingredients that are the staple of of the Aesop range are responsible for the scrub’s exceptional effects.
Finely milled Pumice and Bamboo Stem form the exfoliating component of the scrub, while Fir, Pine Needle, Clove and Sage Leaf essential oils give the scrub its crisp, camphorous fragrance and nourishing effects.
