Beauty Treats For The Man In Your Life

A gift or treat need not be reserved just for birthdays or Christmas, you should be able to treat the man in your life any time you like, just to say ‘I love you’ or I’m thinking of you, or just because – do you really need a reason?

When it comes to buying a gift for my husband, I am always drawn to grooming products. Once upon a time these were the preserve of the metro-sexual male, those who tended to be fashion forward in all areas. For the rest of the male population, a bic razor, plastic comb and a bottle of Insignia was about as far as it went when it came to products for grooming, and if you happened to spot a tub of nivea ladies you’d really found yourself a new man. But in these days of super stylish and groomed male role models, your man is probably likely to have as many products on their bathroom shelf as you do, inspired by the likes of David Beckham, Olivier Giroud, and the two Ryan’s – Reynolds and Gosling.

Here are a few ideas for gifts for that well groomed man in your life.

ER-GB80 Multi-Groomer

Panasonic are a brilliant name when it comes to choosing a men’s trimmer and their latest design is a seriously good one.  The Multi Groomer is a professional hair clipper that gives an exceptionally clean and precise cut. It features new and improved ultra-close blades for a 40% shorter trimming length than conventional models, as well as a smooth curving and easy to handle ergonomic design. It comes with a range of attachments for cutting and trimming hair and beards, and is a seriously attractive piece of kit – a perfect present in fact.

The Beard Bro
Want to get the perfect shape for that hipster beard? Then you need to invest in the Beard Bro, which has been described as the number one facial hair shaping tool for perfect lines and symmetry. It’s basically a set square for beards – a super cool little piece of plastic that enables your man to design a shape for his beard, and then keep it symmetrical when cutting.

Beard Oil

Once upon a time men thought they were doing well if they used a product in their hair, but these days it is all about the beard, and the most stylish beards are also soft and in fabulous condition due in no small part to the use of beard oil. There are lots of brands around including Mo Bro and Billy Jealousy, and Amazon is a great place to look and discover new brands.  Beard Forrest Oil promises to make it Kissable, so that has to be the one doesn’t it!

A fashion for Eyebrows

I must admit, the one part of my beauty regime that I sometimes neglect is my eyebrows. I do pluck and shape, and am a little obsessed with Blink products that slightly darken my quite light brows, but, in general, I find that this is an area I often ignore when applying make-up to the rest of my face. This is a shame really, as eyebrows can completely change the look of your face, with perfect brows something that modern day stars like Cara Delevingne have become famous for.

Cosmetic Surgery experts Transform have just celebrated their 40th birthday, and, as part of the celebrations, they have produced a series of fun infographics looking at different aspects of beauty. The one I like the best concerns eyebrows and is full of interesting, and sometimes surprising facts about eyebrows, including what the shape of your eyebrows says about you.

One of the most shocking facts is that the interest in eyebrow transplants is rising considerably due to the ‘Cara’ effect, with ladies looking for thicker, bushier brows to emulate the stunning Miss Delevingne. If you have plucked excessively in the past your eyebrows may not grow as thick as you would like and so an eyebrow transplant may be something you would consider. With 45% more enquiries about this procedure in 2014, you wouldn’t be the only one!

What is your beauty regime when it comes to your brows? Do you pluck them yourself, or have them threaded professionally? What products do you swear by, or do you leave them to grow naturally? Do you have a brow inspiration? Let me know by leaving a comment below.

New Victoria Beckham Denim at Coggles

At the risk of repeating what is becoming the ultimate fashion cliche, it has to be said that Victoria Beckham has come an awful long way since her Posh Spice days. And, Sunday’s Wimbledon final was the ultimate (yes that word again) proof of this, with almost universal awe for the super stylish looks that she wore, accompanied by the equally impeccable David.

The Wimbledon final saw the showbiz royalty that is the Beckham’s sharing space with the real thing, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also watching Novak Djokavic win the Men’s Singles Championship. I think it was safe to say that as lovely as Wills and Kate looked, it was the Beckham’s who won all the style plaudits, especially for Victoria in her stunning striped dress.

This week, new pieces from the Victoria Beckham premium denim collection has been added at Coggles. Since she launched her women’s wear collections, Victoria has shown a real talent for creating simple, yet effective pieces that have a timeless and ageless quality. The latest denim pieces live up to this aesthetic, and include a perfect raw denim pencil skirt that is one of my favourite Victoria Beckham pieces ever, a versatile piece that could be worn for a myriad of occasions.

In addition to the new pieces, now is sale time of course, and this could be the ideal opportunity to add a little bit of Victoria Beckham to your wardrobe. If you are looking forward to your summer holidays, the navy broderie anglaise Bermuda shorts could be a key buy, whilst the white overlap dress, also in broderie anglaise, is a classic buy that would take you through a lot of Summer’s.
