Bring on your A game with everything from gin-inspired shower gels to a styling balm from cult brand Morris Motley.
Look, and feel good in these trying times with these new grooming products on the market.
Homegrown beauty brand Spa Esprit has collaborated with local distillery Compendium to create a shower gel that celebrates the medley of aromas, smells and scent Singaporeans know and love. The Gin and Detox Plantation Shower Gel draws inspiration from Rojak Gin, Compendium’s flagship firewater. Its three key ingredients – juniper berries, lemon peel and torch ginger– feature heavily in the 250 bottles of shower gel produced. Note to user: torch ginger doesn’t just smell good. In essential oil form, it’s renowned for treating digestive ailments and boosting circulation. Perfect for washing away your worries. Even better, a complimentary bottle of the silky smooth Rojak Gin comes with every purchase of the shower gel – while stocks last.

Giving skin a fighting chance
When it comes to staying healthy, men love to talk about fitness and eating right. Skincare? Well, if you’re not taking care of your face, it doesn’t matter how nice your clothes! Estee Lauder’s been trying to teach us this since 1987, and its new Lab Series Max LS range takes the self-care regimen to the next level. Start your morning with Daily Renewing Cleanser to purge your skin of grime without drying it out. Recharging Lotion keeps your face supple and moist. Finally, all the lifting required is taken care of by salves that fight against time and gravity by minimising loose skin and wrinkles.
