As anyone who has read my blog or follows me on social media has seen, I am always sporting a clean-shaven look. Now, it’s important to note that this is not strictly through choice, but also because I simply am unable to grow any reasonable amount of facial hair. For some context, I’m 27, I eat a healthy diet, maintain a regular exercise routine and sleep as well as keeping a keeping my skin clear and moisturised. Despite this, however, I can’t seem to grow any more than a little peach fuzz around my chin and upper lip. So what’s it like being in a society where beards are widely seen as a sign of style, strength and masculinity, yet you’re incapable of growing one. View Post
In the past I’ve tried to avoid fragrances created by car companies as, from previous experience, I find they are an example of a company applying its strengths in one area (i.e. cars) and attempting to apply them to fragrance with limited success. However, when I received invitation and early press material on Bentley Momentum Intense, the latest cologne from the car manufacturer’s fragrance division, I was undeniably curious. So after a rather cold and wet trip through Central London, I headed to The Shard for the launch event in the Shangri-La hotel to see if Bentley could buck the trend of car company fragrances.
Also, there’s an opportunity for you to win a bottle of this fragrance before it hits the stores by following me on Twitter and retweeting the pinned post for this article. Winner’s will be announced in 2 weeks time on Wednesday 22nd March on Twitter.
As those who know me/follow me online know, over the past two weeks I’ve been away in Mexico enjoying some time away from social media, my inbox and the London lifestyle, which I will be writing about in the coming weeks. Before I left, Mankind offered to gift me some products that I wouldn’t usually try to help me on my travels and keep my skin healthy in the tropical weather. Traditionally, I tend to have 3 major problems with my skin when I’m in sunny climates, namely dry skin around the eyes, blocked pores (from sun cream, dust and oil) and greasy skin (again thanks to oily sun cream).
With these ailments in mind, I chose 3 well reviewed/recommended products which would help remedy the issues and were relatively easy to travel with:
- Bliss Mask a-‘Peel’ Complexion Clearing Rubberizing Mask – £20.00
- Recipe for Men – Under Eye Patches – £18.00
- Jack Black Oil-Free Sun Guard SPF45 – £14.50
Having never used peel masks, eye patches or an oil-free sun guard before I was excited to see how they performed. So I packed my bags, jumped on my flight and began putting them through their paces in the Mexican heat. View Post
February already and hopefully you now over the post-Christmas blues, or reds – if your enjoyment and spending over the festive season got just a little out of control! Here at The Male Stylist we debated whether there was more empathy in bringing you some gorgeous classic (read expensive) 2017 watch style choices or to be a little more wallet friendly. The latter won out, but this is The Male Stylist after all, so our choices, whilst undoubtedly subdued in price, remain suitably high on the style agenda. View Post
Some of my most popular articles have been about positive body image and how men struggle with the way they look, yet are reluctant to discuss it with those around them. I wanted to go into how the discovery of my own personal style has helped me overcome some of my biggest body issues, as well as talk about the challenges I face every day in the hope to promote discussion around the subject matter.
