With temperatures dropping and with summer now a distant memory, skincare routine for men and the winter grooming regime demands some pondering questions about how to tackle those winter challenges (did someone say dry skin?). Thankfully, I’ve put together a list of products for you to ease your way into men’s grooming and to ensure that no matter the season, you are right on top of your grooming and skincare game. And, this may serve as a gift guide considering it comes at the perfect time before Christmas. So without further ado:
This luxury serum brand offers lightweight natural active ingredients which restores moisture to your skin leaving it looking refreshed and intensely hydrated. My personal favourites include the Moisturising Ultra Serum for my face and the Eyedrate+ which reduces the appearance of dark circles and soothes tired eyes.

Hair & Body
Heinrich Barth, a brand inspired by the man himself who was one of the greatest travellers and explorers of the 19th Century, offers such great storytelling behind each individual product that you will be ready to invest right away! 07 Mykonos has the scent of fig leaves, olive trees, rosemary and wild herb. Whilst 04 Dakar has the scent of papaya, mango, vanilla and aloe. Combined with the Hair & Body Cleanser, these three beautiful bottles look after all of your hair and body needs.
RevivSerums will be your haircare go-to once you try its products. the RevivHair Max Hair Stimulating Serum is perfect for those who suffer with thinning hair and hair loss. This product helps stimulate hair growth and perhaps more importantly, prevent shedding. My personal favourite is the RevivScalp Rejuvenating Scalp Serum Masque. This pre-shampoo serum fights flaking, scalp odors, itching, stinging, iritation, and oiliness – in short all the things we tend to suffer from in the winter! With gentle exfoliating properties, this serum helps increase penetration of actives to the hair follicle. Best part is, you can enjoy 10% off using my code GURJ10 on the RevivSerums website.
