Milk Scrub + Cleanse Wipes. Genius!

One of the drawbacks of our hectic, straight-out-clubbing-from-work existence is that there’s rarely time to refresh properly. And what about when you’re at a festival, your boiler packs in and there’s no hot water or you’re backpacking across Tasmania and need to freshen up? Well, these wipes might be the answer.

Part of the Milk range, created by medal-winning Aussie swimmer Michael Klim, they rather cleverly have a soft side and a rough exfoliating one so your can cleanse and polish skin and they can be used pretty much anywhere on the body as well as the face. They ‘re smell great thanks to rosemary and mint and contain soothing chamomile and aloe vera extract too.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating becoming a total soap-dodger but for those times when you need to groom-on-the-go they’re an absolute godsend.

£9.95 for a pack of 25 from Boots.

Korres launch new soap collection. The Grooming Guru is a happy man.

Okay, okay so by now you know I’m something of a soap junkie (I don’t know why I don’t just set up a special category on this blog for ‘Soap News’!) so forgive me but when I opened this little package this morning I couldn’t have been more in my element.

What you’re looking at is the new gentle-cleansing soap collection from Korres, one of my favourite ‘cult’ beauty and grooming brands. Each one is made from 95.5%- 99.3% natural ingredients, is glycerine-based and is free from nasty chemicals.

What’s more, none of them honk to high heaven. Instead, each has a fantastically delicate, clean aroma based on the active ingredient it contains (choose between Pomegrante, Wheat, Milk and, my own personal favourite, Chamomile). Anyway, the upshot is that bathtime just became… funtime!

Korres soaps are available online from www.nivenandjoshua.co.uk
