Try Something New

We tend to be creatures of habit, especially when it comes to the stuff we use everyday. After all, it takes a while to find the right products that work for you. However, if you don't try something new now and again, you're missing out. So whether you're looking to soothe skin, soften your scruff or ditch the dark circles, the latest crop of grooming innovations promise to make you better looking by the end of your morning routine.

Victory moisturizer

This minty moisturizer has a subtle but stimulating scent with a similarly stimulating effect on your skin. Incredibly lightweight and soothing, a little goes a long way. And bonus, it's got SPF too.
