Every year TVG gets older, we seem to see more and more mens grooming brands come to market. When you combine a host of fancy new products with Australia’s love of barbering and facial hair, you’ve got a healthy selection of gifts to choose from. Here’s a few grooming essentials we’ve noticed this year.
Hercules Sägemann – HS600 Comb
Made by hand from 100% vulcanised natural rubber with hand-sawn, hand-cut, and hand-polished teeth, twist resistant and flexible – perfect for an overnight stay or a trip abroad.
Morris Motley – Treatment Cleansing Oil ($50)
With learnings from his studio based in Richmond, Melbourne, barber Rob Mason developed an oil based hair and scalp cleanser that emulsifies the excess oil off the scalp, instead of breaking it down like traditional shampoo.
Hunter Lab – The Cleansing Kit ($59)
It’s hard not to love Hunter Lab just by looking at it. Featuring gorgeous packing on the outside, and high quality, natural, scientifically formulated and environmentally sustainable products within.
Edwin Jagger DE89 Safety Raz0r ($37 Including Shipping)
Safety razors have seen a huge resurgence in recent years. This particular model acts as a perfect starting point for the beginner, providing great balance and room for error!
Patricks Products – M2 Matte Medium Hold ($60)
Out of all the hair styling products I’ve trailed this year, this one reigns supreme as my daily. The M2 isn’t just a solid styling clay, it also features Patrick’s Recovery Compound targeting hair loss, hair grow, scalp health and UV protection.
Face Of Man – Gift Voucher
Treatments at Face Of Man in Sydney are the pinnacle of men’s grooming. Relaxing, refreshing and educational.
Wahl – Stainless Steel Trimmer ($169)
Made in the USA, four hours of operation, and more attachments than Bond’s DB5.
(Mizutani – BLACK-SMITH Retro ($450US)
A combination of cobalt and rare metals with a Hamaguri edge provides a precision cutting experience from the 70’s and point and detail cutting of today.
