Bargain hunter? Strapped for cash? Saving up for that expensive suit? Contrary to popular belief, you can still look after your skin and hair without having to spend a fortune.
Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to try thousands of male grooming products, from the ridiculously cheap to the ludicrously expensive. And, truth be told, in many cases inexpensive products are just as good as (and sometimes even better than) those that cost ten times as much.
Time was, a man who spent too long in the bathroom was met with a level of scorn and suspicion. Thankfully times have changed, but even now its easy to feel bemused by the overwhelming amount of advice, opinion and small pots filled with expensive goop on the market.
The trick isn’t to spend a fortune on a thousand different products, or to lock yourself in the bathroom for hours at a time. Rather, you should develop a daily routine that is quick and simple.
At TOPPBOX, they’re here to simply introduce you to great products from top brands at the comfort of your own home. A review may help you make your mind for a purchase, but a personalised TOPPBOX will give you the opportunity to discover products you love.
