  • Giorgio Armani Skin Minerals for Men Eye Master


Giorgio Armani Skin Minerals for Men Eye Master, Dh350, Paris Gallery

Let’s face it, crinkly eyes are George Clooney’s thing. For mere mortals pulling all-nighters, this cooling gel’s caffeine and volcanic minerals reduces puffiness and wrinkles within minutes to leave you looking bright-eyed and well-rested.


Viktor&Rolf Pre-shave Oil, Dh160, Bloomingdale’s

Stub out stubble with this nourishing oil’s botanic extracts and plant oils that soften whiskers to make shaving a pleasure and leave your face free of razor-bumps, ingrown hairs and dryness, too. The signature spicy scent is a bonus.


Elemis Time Defense Wrinkle Delay, Dh451,

This silky cream’s plumping pomegranate hydroxyproline, antioxidant bamboo and replenishing oils – murumuru, jujube and maracuja – seep into craggy grooves and fine lines to smoothe them out – it’s a great Father’s Day gift.


Shiseido Hydro Master Gel for Men, Dh202, Sephora

Namby-pamby face creams begone, this gel’s hydro master technology boosts natural moisture to banish rugged razor-roughened skin, while peony root extracts combat excess sebum and shrink pores for a matte finish.


Rahua Cream Hair Wax, Dh200, Chaps&Co

The Fifties’ slicked-back hair is back and this all-natural creamy, woody-scented wax holds the classic hairstyle high through meetings or an evening out. Smoothening carnauba wax bonds with wet and dry hair. Walk with your head held high!


Panasonic LV9N Premium Shaver, Dh1,263, Panasonic stores

This waterproof shaver’s Multi-Flex 3D Head traces facial contours and jawlines gently for a close shave. The intelligent sensor detects hair density, hacking away easily at beards and five o’clock shadows.


Nip+Man Ab Fix, Dh159,

Combined daily with crunches, this sculpting gel translates wishes into six-packs. Its wheat protein gemmoslim tones skin and contours abdominal muscles so rippling abs reveal themselves in time for summer pool parties.


Molton Brown Sport Black Pepper 4-in-1 Body Wash, Dh100

A single dollop of this spicy liquid foams into rich lather that gently cleanses face, rinses hair, refreshes body and softens stubble while hydrating from head-to-toe.


Bottega Veneta Essence Aromatique cologne, Dh275 for 50ml, Paris Gallery

Breeze through summer days with this cool cologne of Italian bergamot, citrus, woody patchouli from Indonesia and Siberian pine – it’s a world tour in a whiff.


Stenders Men’s Soap Scrub, Dh48

Why bother with a loofah when this soap bar’s pumice powder and apricot kernel granules do all the hard work buffing scruffy skin? Refreshing juniper berry essential oils cleanse skin with an uplifting aroma.
