Jack Henry offer a range of all natural grooming products, with organic ingredients that leave you feeling natural and confident. Priding themselves on sourcing high quality ingredients from all over the world, here’s my favourites from the line: Hair Refresh is my current go to sea salt spray. It feels light in my hair, adds a perfect amount of texture and keeps fly-aways at bay. Better yet, the lemon scent is delicious. Next up, the Face Toner is refreshing and has a beautiful lavender scent, whilst being an absolutely fantastic toner. As a gent who struggles with oily skin, i was extremely impressed on how well an all natural product mattified my skin. Available from jackhenry.co priced $24 (fingers crossed for UK distribution soon).
Acqua Di Parma Barbiere
If you haven't already, please do have a read about my experience at the Acqua Di Parma Barbiere in Selfridges, London. Luckily we can all enjoy the Barbiere experience at home with the release of the Barbiere range. Consisting of shaving and skincare products, along with several accessories in the iconic Acqua Di Parma yellow. My favourite is the Refreshing After Shave Emulsion, fragranced by the timeless Colonia scent and just as refreshing as the name suggests. Available from acquadiparma.com price £52.
Harry’s x Heyday Detoxifying Face Mask
This new product from Harry's is formulated in partnership with the expert estheticians at Heyday. The product detoxifies with oil-removing clays and includes two types of gentle exfoliants. It is gentle enough for all skin types and is recommended to be used 1-2 times a week. The blend of clays works to clear congestion that can clog your pores with finely ground walnut (the kind you can see) and skin-smoothing acids (the kind you can’t). Barley seed extract helps soothe the skin so there's nothing standing in the way of your newly bright complexion. Available from harrys.com priced £18.
