All products are made with ingredients grown in the UK, avoiding artificial add-ons like parabens and detergents in order to feed your skin with all of the good stuff.

Jaxon Lane

Determined to create products that men would ‘be proud to display on their bathroom counter’, Jaxon Lane is a big name amongst male celebs in the US (Nick Jonas, Diddy and Justin Theroux are just a few of the brand’s big-name clients). The California-based brand was set up by husband and wife team Alex and Jen, when Jen noticed Alex kept stealing her skincare products to use himself. He was fed up with the gimmicky, useless products usually directed at men, and so the pair decided to create something that ‘just works’.

While legendary Japanese skincare brand Shiseido is perhaps best known for its women’s products, its growing line of men’s skincare is certainly nothing to sniff at. The brand, now celebrating 150 years, is perhaps one of the best premium skincare labels for fellas, focusing on combatting ‘the three weakness of male skin: inner defence, antioxidant power and damage resistance. It also offers more than just a cleanser and moisturiser…

White bottle with grey cap


Most of us will have used this legendary skincare brand at one point or another – and if the 100,000 plus skin therapists that swear by it are anything to go by, we’re doing the right thing by keeping it in our bathroom cabinet. Products at Dermalogica aren’t gendered, meaning anyone can give them a go. Many of the formulations are also big on skin-saving ingredients (hence the good feedback), with an emphasis on personalised skincare that slots in with your routine and needs. ‘No two skin conditions are the same,’ says Dermalogica’s website. We couldn’t agree more.
