Closer to Nature

Shortlist's Adrian Clark selects his favourites from the L'OCCITANE Men's Collection

Male grooming has never been hotter. Once considered a pastime for A-list actors and famous footballers, grooming is now an essential part of every man’s daily routine.
Whether you consider yourself already a grooming expert or a total novice in this area, when it comes to taking care of your skin, the L’Occitane Men’s Collection is a must-try. A high-performance range of everything the modern man needs to look and feel good, this is one of ShortList’s favourites. However, when buying new products, it’s always important you know how to use them, so here are my top picks and recommendations:

Cade Shave Routine

Always try to shave after a hot shower as it softens the stubble. Failing that, a warm face wash will do. Massage the Cade Shaving Gel on to damp skin in a circular motion; juniper is the main ingredient, which has protective, healing and repairing properties – ideal for a shaving product. Take the Plisson Razor and, as it’s a top-quality blade, you don’t need to apply much pressure. Finish with Cade After-Shave Balm to soothe the skin and reduce any irritation.

Breaking News...

Our Cade Shaving Oil has been voted the BEST Men's Grooming Product 2014 by Shortlist Awards

“I use shaving oil as part of my personal and professional routine and this is one of the best.”
- Dan Gregory, Expert Barber.

Enriched with Cade complex and organic vegetable oils, the Shaving Oil:
* softens facial hairs for a gentle shave
* enables the razor to glide easily for a fast shave
* helps reduce redness and irritations.

The shave is close and precise (goatee, sideburns…). Skin is soft and supple. Ideal for men who are in a hurry or are travelling. May be used for about 50 shavings.

Cade Skincare Routine

The Cade Protective Moisturising Fluid is a serious daily must-pick. Formulated specifically for men’s skin, it is packed with anti-ageing ingredients, a broad-spectrum SPF20 sun protection and an oil balancing action. And, of course, you shouldn’t leave the house without a squirt of the Cade Eau De Toilette, which is spicy, warm and very sexy...
