JUNE GROOMING EDIT

FullSizeRender 66

For June’s Grooming Edit I have once again teamed up with Panasonic and the new i-Shaper Mens Trimmer to bring you my favourite products which I have been using this past month.

The i-Shaper 3-in-1 Precision Trimmer is the perfect tool to style, trim and shave facial hair to keep you looking your best this summer. The ergonomic design and cordless operation allows for precise trimming and complete control over the difficult areas such as the jaw line and cheeks to get your desired style. Featuring 20 different cutting lengths the i-Shaper ensures a hassle free dry shave which is gentle on your skin – the perfect tool for someone who likes to keep a bit of stubble, but wants to keep it looking neat and tidy. For more information and to see the i-Shaper in action, head on over to the Panasonic YouTube page.

So what new products have I been using this month?

Prada Luna Rossa Carbon Eau De Toilette. The latest fragrance for men from Prada is a good one. Combining a mix of lavender, citrus and amber, the fragrance is sweet yet warm and masculine. This is the type of fragrance which is universal and would appeal to most people – I get so many compliments every time I wear it and its the perfect scent for the summer months. £49

LUSH Enzymion Moisturiser. I recently visited the Lush Spa in Leeds where I had the Validation Facial treatment which was amazing! I would definitely recommend booking in for a treatment if you can. The treatment itself involved a number of different LUSH products so after it was over I was keen to add some of these to my everyday routine. Stand out products to me were the Enzymion Moisturiser and the Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask (which they gave me after my treatment). The moisturiser is so thick and hydrating and is just what someone with dry skin like me needs. I was worried it would leave my skin feeling oily but as each pot contains a whole lemon, it leaves your skin with a matte finish. Again, another product which is perfect for the warmer weather. £14/£7

Jack Black Eye Balm. If the warm weather we’ve been having has stopped you getting a good nights sleep, this product is for you and it’s so easy to use. Featuring a stainless-steel rollerball applicator to massage and cool on contact, the blend of soothing and hydrating ingredients helps to minimise puffiness and brighten tired-looking eyes. The clear gel quickly absorbs into your skin and is non-sticky so is ideal any time of the day when you need a pick me up. Think mid afternoon slump or after a night of drinking.. £24

Perricone MD H2 Elemental Energy Hydrating Cloud Cream. The latest innovation from Perricone MD comes in the form of the H2 Elemental Energy range. The light weight ‘cloud-like’ formula is highly moisturising and is powered with Hydrogen to deliver ‘deep penetrating hydration to the surface layers of skin for 24 hour results’. The fragrance-free formula absorbs almost immediately into your skin leaving it feeling soft and smooth, without any oily residue. It kept me hydrated through the day and felt very natural. Not only does it do wonders for the skin, but it also looks amazing too, just look at that packaging! £80

Omorovicza Instant Perection Serum. I had never heard of this brand before receiving this item, but since I was introduced to it, I have seen it everywhere! I received this when I attended the Mankind Father’s day event at the beginning of the month. I wasn’t really sure what to do with a ‘face serum’ at first as I had never used one before. Turns out you apply this before you moisturise and, a third of a bottle later, it’s something I can always see being part of my everyday grooming routine. It feels a little bit sticky on first contact but soon disappears into your skin leaving it instantly firmer, brighter and hydrated. The Hyaluronic acid helps to plump up the skin and helps to lock in moisture. I also found that it made my complexion look so much better; minimising pores and making blemishes appear less red for a more evened out my skin tone. By applying a moisturiser over the top you are sure to have healthy hydrated skin all day long. £80

There you have it, my June favourites, have you tried any of these? What do you think about the Panasonic i-Shaper?

Revamp your Grooming Routine with Panasonic

Screen Shot 2017-01-19 at 13.18.13.png

Waking up during Winter is hard enough. Waking up and starting your morning grooming routine can be even harder. Despite the cold mornings January is the perfect time to look at our current routines and revamp them in preparation for the year ahead.

Starting off the new year with a good routine in place will not only set you up for the rest of 2017 but it is also vital to setting yourself up for a good day. A grooming routine doesn’t have to take long, every now and then it’s ideal to assess what works, what doesn’t, what new products are available and what techniques can be used to cut down on time.

In collaboration with the new Panasonic Electric Hair ClippersI have put this quick guide together to show how you can get maximum results for minimum effort, which means more time in bed!

Teeth

Investing in a good electronic toothbrush will not only save time brushing your teeth, but it also does all the hard work for you. Try investing in a good quality tooth paste and mouthwash to give your mouth that deep clean feeling.

Skincare

When it comes to skincare there are more and more products which are now tailored to men’s’ requirements. With eye creams, targeted treatments and beard oils saturating the market, it’s hard to know what you should include into your routine. With hundreds of products and brands for men to choose from it can all get a bit confusing! Knowing what works for you will be down to trial and error but there are two key elements to a morning skincare routine – cleanse and moisturise. Try investing in a pack of good quality face wipes, these will not only save a couple of minutes but they are so much easier to use then having to physically wash your face. Follow with moisturiser to retain and replenish any moisture lost through the night.

Showering

Try showering the night before. During the winter we sweat considerably less so switching from morning to night can trim 20 minutes off your routine. Not only that, showering at night also prepares you for a good night sleep, relaxing the mind and body, meaning you feel more refreshed in the morning.

Grooming

When it comes to male grooming, the new multipurpose Panasonic Electric Hair Clippers has all your needs covered and can be used for everything from taming your sideburns to shaping your beard.

Featuring new ultra close blades which are 40% shorter than the conventional model, you can achieve a much closer and precise cut, saving time spent going over the same areas again and again.

The ergonomic design and soft grip rubber pads allows the trimmer to fit comfortably in your hand allowing you to have complete control for a clear cut. This allows you to trim intricate areas such as the edges of beards and mustaches into shape on a daily basis.

The trimmer also comes complete with two comb attachments (3mm, 6mm) which can be used for all your beard, body and hair trimming needs. So if you’re going for that designer stubble look all you need to do is select the appropriate guide comb and go lightly over your facial hair with the trimmer, cutting everything back to a uniform length.

Once you’ve finished your routine, simply stand the trimmer back in it’s charging station,  ready for the following morning.

Offering 40 minutes of cordless power you really can groom until your heart’s content! For further information and full specifications on the Panasonic ER-GP21 Professional Hair Clippers head over to the webpage here.er-gp21-k811-product_imageglobal-1_uk_en
