Finding the correct grooming essentials can become a bit of a whirlwind. Brands need to understand that kit every grooming product is suitable for the everyday man. Us men have different taste to other men, not all of us are going to fall in love with the same grooming item, let’s be honest.
TOPPBOX allows you to personalise every box before placing an order. With an easy-peasy grooming profile to fill out by ticking the appropriate box, you can guarantee a perfect selection of products every time.
For £19.00 a month and with £50-£70 valve grooming essentials in every box, you really are getting the ultimate treat every single month. There is an option of receiving a personalised box every 2 months for the same price too. If you wasn’t entirely satisfied with your first box, you are welcome to cancel at any time but bearing in mind your subscription renews on the 25th every month until you decide to cancel (I can’t see a reason why you would).
Starting with the first product, Christopher Courtney Anti-Oxidant Chocolate Foot Scrub is something rather special and tempting. Infused with a blend of nature’s best, coconut oil, cocoa butter, honey and aloe vera, your feet are most definitely getting spoilt by the soothing, comforting ingredients. Dead sea salt, mango and pineapple powders provide an enzymatic action to exfoliate, removing unwanted dead skin. I’ve also been using this chocolate-ty goodness on my body, it really does leave you with the most silky-soft skin, talk about resisting temptation from chocolate.
Next up on the list we have the eye-catching Hawkins & Brimble Elemi and Ginseng Face Wash that offers a natural cleansing approach unlike most men’s face cleansers on the current market. Combining the conditioning elements of aloe leave juice and coconut-derived detergents, skin is throughly cleansed and toned without the use of skin irritants SLS/SLES, artificial colours or parabens. Hawkins & Brimble was created to offer something new and edgy from the rest, a keen eye for Britannia and a passion for delivering natural, effortless products to the modern mans world.
Being the first natural and organic cosmeceutical treatment line, S5 solves problematic skin by using safe, effective ingredients without the us of harsh, synthetic ingredients. The Purity Serum contains exotic, bioactive ingredients like picão preto; a rainforest herb that is used in this serum for its anti-inflammatory benefits. Willow herb extract is used as a sebum regulator and a natural pore reducer. A favourite ingredient of mine, Salicylic Acid at 2% works straight away at killing the spot causing p.bacteria thanks to its mild exfoliating action. This serum sinks into the skin like dream leaving to tacky residue that can feel uncomfortable throughout the day.
This intensely rich body wash from The Scottish Fine Soaps Company won me over at first application. The creaminess of textures and desirable scent freshly lingers on the skin as you towel dry. Milk provides an indulgence to the skin leaving you feeling pampered from top-to-bottom. Rich in pure aloe vera to soften, calm and soothe skin. Great to apply as a facial cleanser if you’re in a rush! The moisturising properties leaves your skin feeling like pure silk, nothing can beat the quality of Au Lait.
