Leave it to Tom

Leave it to Tom Ford to create some of the best grooming products for men out there. Of course, there's his fashion but I have always been very impressed with the grooming game of Tom Ford which is also way more accessible!

Not only the many excellent fragrances in and out of his private collection but his skin care products are also on point. Plus he doesn't shy away from the fact that men occasionally also need specialty products like a concealer, a brow groomer or a skin serum to look your very best.

What's on my shelf is the Purifying Face Cleanser and the Exfoliating Energy Scrub.I use the cleanser every day and the scrub once or twice a week.

You only need a dab of the cleanser which turns into a light and smooth foam when applied to the face - and of course, Mr. Ford has scented it wonderfully adding to the pleasure of using it. Yes, it is $49 but you have it for a long time which balances the cost. My skin feels clean and soothed but not stripped or tight after use, and it's well-prepared for the days I shave.


The scrub is formulated with crushed apricot seeds which are gentle on the skin - but you should never scrub the skin hard since the product only works on the surface of the skin, and extensive rubbing could create tears and irritation. The scrub lives up to its energizing name with a gingery scent which leaves the skin feeling polished and very fresh. Always follow with a moisturizer after scrubbing since the skin is left a little open and sensitized.
