If you’re looking for an excuse to update your grooming kit, don’t worry – we’ve got six
Kenneth Cole For Him 100 ml EDT R1 245
If you’re looking for something special, then this is it. The scent opens with fresh notes of citrus and sea salt, which then develops into a sweeter heart of jasmine and ginger. It finally settles into a heavier base of wood and amber, making it the perfect fragrance for day or night.
Dunhill Icon 50 ml EDP R1 110
This fragrance claims to be masculine and sophisticated – and that’s exactly what it is, thanks to the powerful combination of its bergamot and neroli opening notes, a heart of spicy black pepper, cardamom and lavender, and a grounding base of leather and oud.
Nivea Men All Seasons Moisture Cream R64.95
We often skip moisturiser in summer and only reach for it in winter. But this one makes it easy to be moisturised year-round. It’s fast absorbing and non-sticky, making it perfect for lasting hydration in summer, as well as winter.
Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream R375
There’s nothing new about this little hero, yet it keeps proving why it’s reached cult status. This lightweight yet effective pick-me-up for eyes brightens and hydrates in one fell swoop. The cool application tip is excellent for de-puffing, while the fragrance-free and oil-free formula also means it won’t irritate sensitive eyes or contact lenses.
Nuxe Detoxifying + Glow Mask R330
Don’t let its floral fragrance fool you – this mask’s hardworking charcoal gets to work on stubborn clogged pores and dull skin, while rose water leaves skin fresh and radiant. It’s also easy to rinse off and only needs to stay on for 2 minutes, making it quick and easy for the man on the go.
OGX Charcoal Detox Shampoo R179.95
Charcoal makes its second appearance on this list – this time in a shampoo. Hot weather means more sweat, sunscreen and residue from the ocean or pool, which is why our hair needs a more thorough cleanse in summer than in winter. The combo of charcoal and kaolin clay leaves hair squeaky clean, without stripping it of all its moisture.
