Essential Men’s Grooming during lockdown to hoard in isolation at home – Get to know my current favourites

You would agree, when it comes to our favourite brands we swear by and pledge loyalty to as we love them too much it’s not possible to feel complete when getting our morning’s off to a good start.

Over the past few months we’ve all had the challenge to adapt to a new life during the Covid 19 pandemic and that includes not going to the shops as normal, but in this case it was only allowed if absolutely necessary for essentials

For me, I count beauty and grooming products as everyday essentials even though we are used to adhering to our own personal grooming rituals at home before going out. With that said, staying in isolation for long periods of time feels like you’re putting life on hold for the moment but that doesn’t mean you should neglect daily routines and the same goes for grooming. Lucky for me, I’d stocked up on a few things which I already had before the whole country went into lockdown so I have learned at this moment in time to appreciate things allot more.

A sneak peak inside my personal toiletries bag with all the essential items I often carry with me to refresh my grooming kit at home or on the go.

This whole experience of the lock down period felt a bit like the War in Britain in comparisons to shortage of food items which was a bit of a culture shock at first. Learning to go without certain items like loo roll which my household was careful to ration at the beginning felt like a luxury until hoarding of this item calmed down a bit. But, with none essential shops having to close consumer and luxury goods were not easy to get hold off even online for that matter, but we just had to make the most of what we have during this time, so here’s what’s inside my personal toiletries bag with all the essential items I often carry with me to refresh my grooming kit at home or on the go.

In situations like staying at home my skin needs to feel refreshed and energized using the following brands which I highly recommend which are no particular order Clinique men’s or women’s to Acqua di Parma products because they just that fabulous once you try them out and work miracles for their individual uniqueness and formulated to suit various skincare types.

Clinique’s dramatically different moisturizing lotion gives my skin that extra feeling of hydration best applied when the skin is moist after a shower to feel refreshed.

When self selecting favourite brands you can’t go wrong with specialist sensitive skincare products out there in the market bearing in mind they custom to your skins condition like mine is prone to in between oily to dry skin combination. Clinique’s dramatically different moisturizing lotion gives my skin that extra feeling of hydration best applied when the skin is moist after a shower to feel refreshed. For me the skin pores open up so the lotion is easily absorbed once gently applied to the face.  Before doing this, once in the shower use the face wash to gently remove any excess oil, grime and dirt gently using hands to let it lather into the layers of skin then rinse off for a deep clean. This product works wonders as a thorough cleanser yet gentle is suitable for normal to dry skin. I love the Men’s skincare range just because Clinque is developed by dermatologist, 100 percent fragrance free and allergy tested.

For this range of Moisturiser, I use dry to combination as my skin sometimes tends to feel oily so this balances out the condition of my skin to improve its appearance.

They don’t call it dramatically different for nothing as it does exactly what it says on the tin. For outside in the garden when being confined to being at home our skin needs vitamin and sun protection from UV rays. Rain or shine Clinique’s Super Energizer SPF 40  is a great gel formula too although some prefer to use other versions in a lotion based on personal preference as it absorbs allot easier I think. I do love the hints of citrus notes in this product which helps to re-energise the skin for that extra boost to protect your skin against the outdoor elements. This one is great for hydrating tired looking skin with anti fatigue concentrate to protect against UVA/B + IR + Blue light defense in one.

And finally onto my one my other favourites let’s mention fragrance because it’s something I always like to have on and it’s always great to smell good for that final touch of luxury to complete any grooming routine. I think it was Tom Ford who said it’s essential to wear fragrance even in bed and I absolutely agree. That invigorating feeling of scented aroma in a room amongst my bed linen is just amazing I tell you from experience with spaying on fragrance favourites. Even when I travel I’ll do the same before going to bed a spruce on Colonia by Acqua di Parma for its hint of freshness on the skin. Just give these products a try I’d like to see how you get on. Just leave comment below for some feedback I’d love to hear your thoughts on your personal grooming recommendations during lock down.

ACQUA DI PARMA COLONIA ARTIST EDITION BY CLYM EXCLUSIVE TO CHRISTMAS | GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM

ACQUA DI PARMA GETS CREATIVE WITH FESTIVE CHEER FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 549 views

 

For Christmas 2018 the brand has introduced their exclusive Home and Travel Collection in collaboration with the acclaimed British Artist Clym Evernden who worked with Fenwicks on their window displays and Stylist magazine.

British Artist Clym collaborates with Acqua di parma for their limited Edition Colonia Collection this Holiday Season.

Clym was commissioned to create Acqua di Parma’s new campaign for the Limited Edition Colonia Artist Collection to capture the essence of the sunny sophistication of Italy and liberated feeling that inspired his little yellow bird illustration. Acqua’s products are mostly unisex so the packaging reflects that and was created in mind to be neutral so the products are accessible for everyone.

New arrivals this season include a deodorant just recently added to the range which includes 32 fragrances in the whole collection so there’s allot of choice to impress even the most discerning gentlemen in your life.

As gift set’s seem to be the most popular choice this festive season I wanted to mention the ones which stood out for me which were the smart gifts as Clym limited edition hand wash and hand lotion, scented candles colonia x Clym and Essenza Intensa Pura x Clym gift sets come with 100 ml fragrance, gel deodorant and shower gel.

 

 

Gift packaging Seasons Greeting’s in four different languages Russian, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese for a personal touch.

 

The Bespoke option gift box is available too where you can choose 3 or 4 products encased with a ribbon without tissue which in my opinion seems smarter in terms of presentation. It does not stop there so in fact it just gets even better where the personalisation of gifts this Christmas is pre-monogrammed on Hat boxes. By observing the packaging it has seasons greeting’s in four different languages Russian, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese includes limited Edition products and colonia handwash.

 

 

 

So just to recap what’s on offer this Christmas it’s the Christmas gift sets x 4 Colonia, Intensa, Essena and Pura, to smart gift sets / home, Colonia Sandelo and bespoke gifting.

 

 

Acqua di Parma Colonia Classic is the Award Winning Classic Fragrance at the GQ Grooming Awards 2017

During my window shopping trip over the weekend I realised that the Blue Mediternia Collection is only exclusive to House of Fraiser which are citrus, aromatic, sweet scented and fruity distinguished by the names Mirto di Panrea, Aranci Di Capri, and Fico di Amalfi to recreate that feeling of being holiday once you get there.

Citrus aromatic scent is fresh and full of life with bergamot where the woody smells of vetiver, lavender and lemon leave that long lasting impression of sophistication.

Trust me on this one, as you’ll want to try all 6 in the range too from Colonia Assoluta, Colonia Intensa, Colonia Essensa, Colonia Club and Colonia Pura. For those of you interested in the history of the brand Acqua di Parma’s Colonia Classic fragrance is 102 years old which makes it a classic heritage brand to rival other designer fragrances on the market as the Award Winning Classic Fragrance at the GQ Grooming Awards 2017.

Interesting fact – Colonia represents the 1st 100 years of the past and Colonia Pura the 2nd 100 years in the present future. I could go on and on but as the main focus of this review is to tell you all about the Limited Edition Christmas Collection you’ll want to take home and own which you and your loved ones can share together. These days the popularity of catering to meet the demand for gender neutral products is especially common in both men and women’s fragrances which can also be considered unisex which is something you’ll both want to own together because it’s very special. So, I think that’s pretty much Christmas shopping sorted and various item’s I’ll add to my wish list then!
