5 Grooming essentials to add to your dopp kit
From lightweight hydrators to moisturise the skin to splurge-worthy deodorants, these masculine solutions will have you polished and presentable in no time.
Jack Black Oil Control Toner
We get it—most men don't think that toner is worth leaving space for in their dopp kits. But here's why it is a must for any skincare regimen: Toners balance your skin's pH levels while ensuring your skin doesn't secrete excessive sebum. In short, toners are what you need to make sure your face doesn't look like a greasy pan by lunchtime. Use Jack Black's alcohol-free toner that has a cocktail of active ingredients to give your 1) anti-pollution protection, 2) decongest pores, and 3) reduce blackheads.
Clinique For Men Maximum Hydrator Activated Water-Gel Concentrate
After patting on enough toner onto your skin, don't forget to use an effective moisturiser to seal in the moisture. If you aren't a fan of oil-based creams or anything that feels heavy on the skin, we suggest Clinique's water-based hydrator that has water-binding ingredients in the formula. Nothing like an instant refresh for dehydrated skin, thanks to encapsulated antioxidants in the water-gel formula.
Sachajuan Fibre Paste and Matt Wax
Got thick hair that won't stay put no matter how much product you've piled on to style it? Add Sachajuan's Fibre Paste for an extra strong, flexible hold that you can reshape easily. This will also give you a textured look with a subtle shine. But for those with shorter styles, opt for the Sachajuan Matt Wax that can be applied on wet or dry hair for a soft hold and visible matte effect.
Tom Ford Noir Deodorant
Stay fresh all day long with a deodorant that smells as good as you'd look (after using all these, that is). Tom Ford Noir Deodorant Stick is a handy bringalong to keep your underarms from smelling rank if you're out and about. The formula dries quickly and is lightly scented with the brand's signature Noir fragrance—a spicy, full-bodied scent that spells masculine in every way.
