With Christmas officially over we can start looking forward to what 2017 has to bring. The New Year is a great time to reflect on the past year and create achievable goals for the next 12 months. At the start of last year my skin was particularly bad. I found myself plagued with ingrown hairs along the beard line, which were not only unsightly but also really painful.
Having gone my teenage years with fairly clear skin, it was frustrating to have skin problems in my late twenties. Ok, it wasn’t THAT bad, but it felt like it and really started to get me down.
This past year I have had the opportunity to try and review various male grooming products which has helped me understand what works for me and in turn keep my skin under control. I’m always on the look out for new products to introduce into my daily routine so this Christmas when I received a shed load of luxury male grooming gifts I couldn’t wait to get started. I’m looking forward to giving them all a try over the next couple of months and see what the hits are and which ones are the misses.
Some of these were featured on my Christmas Gift Guide so maybe people do read my blog after all! So… what did I get?
I have used a couple of the TOM FORD products before with good results, however I haven’t tried any of these so I’ll be looking forward to giving them a good go soon. The packaging alone gets me excited so let’s hope this products live up to their price point.
