Back in the mists of time, when I was a mere teenager with hair like Simon Le Bon, Neal’s Yard Remedies were a beacon for male grooming’s early adopters like me. Though they didn’t have any specific men’s products to speak of back in those days, the neutral packaging, herby, unisex aromas and no-fuss formulations meant there was always something you could find to improve your daily routine. And there’s always been at least one of their products on my bathroom shelf ever since. Their Geranium and Orange Shower Gel is, without doubt, one of the best body products out there and regardless of whether you’re a man or a woman, you’re a mug if you don’t try the Frankincense Hydrating Cream. But despite the odd product and gift set aimed at men there was no dedicated real range for men’s skin. Until now.
This month sees the launch of a whole array of specially formulated (and packaged) men’s products under the banner of NYR Men. Of all the products, the Purifying Face Wash, Calming After Shave Balm and Revitalising Face Scrub are probably the must-haves but it all smells good, feels good on the skin and, crucially, does exactly what it says on the beautiful blue bottle. What’s more, the labels tell you how much of each product is certified organic. Great stuff.
