From teens to granddads, men are hard to buy for, but make no mistake, they love their grooming products. So much so that Mintel predicts that the male grooming market is set to be worth $26.6bn by 2020. If you’ve ever struggled to come up with ideas for the younger men in your life (nephews, cousins, sons), as well as the adults, Jack Black Men’s Skincare has you covered. I’ve picked out a couple of their limited edition Christmas gift kits that tick all of the boxes.
First up is the Jack Black Fresh Man kit – the perfect starter set to take taking along to the gym. Recognising that men are far more up for multi-functional products than women, there’s the Turbo Wash that acts as both hair and body cleanser. It’s got a super-fresh, tingly scent with eucalyptus, rosemary and juniper – a proper recharge for sleepy morning wake-ups, post-sport or simply every-day use. Deep Dive Glycolic Facial Cleanser has a dual action too – using a clay base, it cleanses the skin while giving mild enzymatic exfoliation that tackles oil and grime for soft, clear skin. For the more serious ‘groomer’, it’s great to use as a 5-minute purifying mask. A great hangover skin remedy! Lastly, the kit includes Clean Break Oil Free Moisturiser that’s especially good for winter skin prone to dryness. Antioxidant white tea and sea kelp (both organic) provide protection and Niacinamide helps with tone. The moisturiser has a shine-free finish. The kit is £24.60 HERE.
Second in my pick is the Balm Squad. My son pinches more of my lip balms than I can even count, all year round. So, this kit containing three Intense Therapy Lip Balms SPF 25 has his name all over it, as well as my six nephews who all love sport but never think to pack a lip balm in their bags.
They’re low sheen (no glossy lips!) with conditioning ingredients such as cocoa seed butter and lanolin that prevent moisture leaving lips, so they stay smooth and comfortable. Flavour wise – they’re man-friendly; no cupcake or peach here. Instead, you’ll find Cucumber Lime, Mint & Shea Butter and Basil Lemon. The kit is £19.50 HERE.
