A happy autumn to you all – isn’t autumn a marvellous season to be a man? Football is back, hearty food fills pub menus and ale tastes better. Plus, whereas summer is about the body, autumn is all about the face.
Let’s face it. Most of us look better rocking the autumn scarf look than the pastel shorts and t-shirt combo. So this is our time, gentlemen, to celebrate our faces. Our ragged, chiselled, high-cheek-boned, moisturised, big, old, young, fresh, smooth and hairy faces.
According to certain reports, we may have reached peak beard. I say NONSENSE. If the 21st century beard can survive Mumford & Sons it can survive anything. So, fair gentlemen, if you want to rock a crazy ‘tache or a grizzly beard, go for it, express yourself.
On the other hand, if you prefer to work the clean shaved look, that’s perfectly acceptable too. And with the cutting edge (sorry) tech now being used in razors, and the very affordable ranges of balms, moisturisers and creams, there’s no excuse for not being perfectly shaved every day.
Whichever way you choose to treat your face this autumn, make sure you own it. It’s your face, and you only get one.
You can find a selection of my favourite face products here, but here’s my top three.
1. Total Shaving Solution Shaving Oil. This is one for the clean shavers. Oil is the way forward when it comes to shaving and this brand even comes with a ‘closest shave ever’ guarantee.
2. Gillette Fusion Proglide Beard Styler. There’s no excuse for an imperfect beard with this very impressive beard styling razor. Seriously, no excuse.
3. Gillette Fusion Proglide Manual Razor Blades. The best value a man can get. This pack includes 10 blades and a razor with a reformulated lubrication strip. If you want to stock up and enjoy a good deal, this is the pack for you.
Now, competition time. We have an iPad and 100 Nivea giftpacks to give away. To be in with a chance to win simply tell us if you prefer Groomed or Grizzly! Groomed are those clean-shaven gentlemen while Grizzly are the charming modern gents who sport facial hair. Leave your answer, along with a recent Ocado order number (see your receipt) in the comments below.
Good luck and have a super autumn.
