JANUARY 2022’S BEST MEN’S GROOMING DROPS
THE BEST RELEASES IN MALE SKINCARE, HAIRCARE, AND FRAGRANCE THIS MONTH
It’s a little late in the month to wish you all a happy new year, but look, I’ve done it anyway. Whilst our waistbands battle to return to pre-Christmas status, our skin battles on through the cold, wind, and rain. Let’s kick the year off right with a selection of the best grooming drops in January.
Nourish London - Soothing Muscle Bath & Shower
Let me guess, you’ve signed up for that new year gym membership, and now suffering with the aches and pains that come along with it. There’s nothing better than a soak in the bath to sooth aching muscles and Nourish London have released just the product to accompany it. Formulated with Epsom salts as well as essential oils of lemon, pine, juniper and lavender it’s as relaxing as it is soothing. Better yet, it can also be used a shower gel!
Available from Nourish London - £16
D.S. & DURGA - Grapefruit Generation
I adore grapefruit fragrances, yet don't often wear them, this will be changing now Grapefruit Generation has entered my life. Opening with juicy pomelo skin, a mid rich with tuberose and a base of course featuring grapefruit, but also a fascinating cork note. D.S. & DURGA do a few things very well, their notes are vivid, their bottle design is one of my favourites, and they’re renowned for their ability to whisk you across the world in a scent. Let’s have summer early!
Available from D.S. & DURGA - $260
ESHO. - COAT Ultra-Hydrating Repair and Heal Lip Balm
I’ve preached before on the virtues of carrying a lip balm on you at all times. I suspect many of you haven’t listened, so I’ll say it again. Carry a lip balm! Your lips will look and feel healthier and who doesn’t want that!? COAT is a fantastic butter like lip serum that’s formulated with squalane, sugarcane and golden jojoba oil. It’s very much the case that a little goes a long way, the smallest amount can revive dry, cracked lips. Get some!
Available from ESHO. - £21.99

L’Atelier Parfum - Verte Euphorie
There’s something about January and citrus scents, perhaps it’s signifying a fresh start or perhaps it’s a yearning to move away from rich winter scents. Verte Euphorie has an intoxicating top note combination of blood orange, grapefruit and petitgrain. A fascinating mid note combination of gentian and carrot, followed by a base of musk and white cedar. Verte Euphorie is juicy, sparkling and just the Christmas detox I’ve been waiting for.
