Grooming Guru Essentials: Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle Geranium Pour Monsieur Shower Gel

Geranium pour monsieur boite+baseHROne of the great things about having a blog is being able to write about the products you love simply because you love them. So I make no excuses for quickly mentioning this fantastic shower gel from Frederic Malle. Along with patchouli and the scent of lilac, geranium is one of my absolute favourite smells, partly because it’s so wonderfully uplifting.

If you’ve sampled Malle’s Geranium Pour Monsieur you’ll know what a great fragrance it is but this shower gel is superb too partly because, unlike many other shower gels, it has the ability to scent more than just the water but your entire bathroom. That turns bathtime into a truly sensational (I’d say scentsational if I was being tabloid about it) experience.

Grooming Guru Essentials are the products I genuinely love and have used as part of my own routine.

The Lynx Manwasher – the ultimate shower tool for men

If there’s one thing you can say about Lynx it’s that they’ve never stopped being witty, clever and innovative. Their advertising has always pushed the envelope (the fallen angels remains one of my fave grooming ads) as have their products.

And now, in that spirit, the team at Lynx have developed the ultimate shower tool for men: The Lynx Manwasher. An easy to use, dual-sided shower accessory, the Manwasher makes for a brilliant, palm-sized body exfoliator, replacing cumbersome luffas and brushes, and can be used in conjunction with Lynx shower gels to ensure you get squeaky clean.

One side features a textured scrubbing pad (making it perfect for tackling tough skin on heels, elbows and knees) while the other has a lathering micro-mesh “scrunchie” which ensures you get the most out of your shower gel. Not only does it help whip up a fantastic lather (making your gel go further in the process) it also gently removes dead skin cells, polishing skin and leaving it smooth, soft and conditioned.

So whether you’re scrubbing up for an important date, interview or after a muddy Saturday afternoon five-aside the Lynx Manwasher is the perfect way to feel clean, confident and 100% fresh.

The Lynx Manwasher is available at retailers nationwide priced £3.99. For more information, special offers and other fun Lynx stuff go to
