Introducing: The Esquire + BEAST. Grooming Box

Eight bathroom heroes you can’t afford to be without

We’re going to let you in on a secret that — as a business designed to showcase the latest advances in male grooming — we really shouldn’t. You don’t need to own a lot of products to look, or indeed smell, good. Sure, there are endless benefits to owning an antioxidant-rich serum, or making time to apply a restorative eye mask once a week. However, when time (or space) is at a premium, there are only a handful of effective treatments you need to have to hand. For that reason, we’ve teamed up with the editors of Esquire Magazine to produce a grooming box comprising just that. Between us, we scrubbed, shaved, slathered and sprayed our way through countless bottles to select the very best. Worth £220, it includes eight full-size products from the likes of Heath, Murdock and Allies of Skin for only £100. So what’s in the box? And what does Esquire’s team of male grooming experts make of them?

Agnostico All-In-One Balm by Bullfrog

Esquire says: “Fights all the facial hair ills in one go. Softens and moisturises coarse stubble, tames unwieldy beards and moisturises the skin beneath, leaving it calm and cool.”

Deodorant by Baxter of California

Esquire says: “Ditch the aerosol for an alcohol- and aluminium-free roll-on gel that packs a spicy citrus punch. The non-staining formula saves your clothes and uses tea tree to neutralise odour-forming bacteria.”

Cleanser by Allies of Skin

Esquire says: “Bursting with antioxidants, Allies of Skin’s cleanser is perfect for removing the grime and pollution that builds up on your skin throughout the day, and its silk amino acids keep the skin looking fresh.”

Moisturiser by SA.AL & Co

Esquire says: “One of the best all-round — and all-natural — moisturisers we’ve tried. Offers intense hydration via aloe vera, shea and cocoa butters and macadamia oil.”

Body Wash by Plant Apothecary

Esquire says: “Made from 100 per cent natural ingredients, Plant’s combination of rosemary and lemongrass is the perfect way to kick-start the day. Refreshing and nourishing, it is also delicate on sensitive skin.”

Energy Supplement Strips by Patchology

Esquire says: “Great for when even the best skincare routine doesn’t quite do the trick. Patchology’s strips dissolve on the tongue for an instant boost of invigorating caffeine, green tea and vitamin D.”

Sea Salt Spray by Murdock

Esquire says: “The best way to get that just-been-for-a-swim hair without having to go all the way to the beach. Gives finer hair more volume and thicker hair more texture. Win-win.”

Eye Serum by Heath

Esquire says: “A serum with the power to firm, protect and reawaken the skin around the eyes. Formulated with Soliberine NAT®, it works to block out harmful blue light, too.”
