From solid fragrances you can enjoy on the go, to luxury haircare that will prevent hair loss, here are a few of the grooming products I just can’t get enough of this month.
With hereditary hair loss affecting 30% of men in their 30’s and about 50% of men in their 50’s, Aveda has created the Invati Men’s range which improves the look of thinning hair. Adopting two step approach the Invati Men nourishing exfoliating shampoo exfoliates the scalp while conditioning to help strengthen hair. Step two is applying the scalp revitalizer which instantly thickens hair at the root and invigorates the scalp. In consumer tests 4 out of 5 men noticed their hair felt stronger and appeared thicker. Invati Men Nourishing Exfoliating Shampoo $49.95 and Invati Men Scalp Revitalizer $89.95. Available from the Aveda website and leading salons.
Your eyes are the very first thing people notice about you, and even if you get the recommended eight hours of sleep, you still may wake up looking tired. With a number of causes contributing to puffiness and dark circles, Thalgomen Anti-Fatigue Serum for Eyes will leave you looking refreshed by reducing the visible signs of fatigue. Formulated with powerful botanical active ingredients, this fresh gel stimulates micro-circulation (the body’s small blood vessels) to combat the appearance of unsightly under-eye puffiness and reduce the look of dark circles and fine lines. Thalgomen Anti-Fatigue Serum for Men $69. Available from the Thalgo website and selected stockists.
