This set contains a shaving serum and a post-shave balm aimed at making grooming as soothing as possible. With the key ingredient of neroli and the addition of sandalwood, the shaving serum is easily absorbed while the balm acts to calm and moisturise preventing inflammation.

In the summer hotter temperatures can lead to sweatier skin and greasier pores. With Lancôme’s Ultimate Cleansing Gel, skin is left feeling clean and refreshed without stripping natural oils or moisture. Prevent break-outs by using twice a day and follow with a light moisturiser.

This moisturiser from the male division of organic skincare company Neal’s Yard Remedies is a wash bag essential for those looking to tackle the early signs of ageing. It’s deeply moisturising which is ideal for when too much sun leaves skin feeling a little tight.

Whether or not you’re going somewhere hot this summer this is a good product to have to hand. While it is ideal for use on sunburnt skin thanks to its cooling properties, it will also help to calm and soothe any rashes, small cuts and spot-prone areas of skin.

Hair can get pretty dirty in the summer, it’s not just sweat, sand and suncream that you have to worry about, but also a build up of styling products. VO5’s Clean Up shampoo gets rid of all the muck leaving hair feeling fresh and clean. There’s also the added benefit of a conditioner.
£2.99, VO5, tesco.com
Fans of Frederic Malle’s award-winning fragrance will love the shower gel too. The wash features the unique mix of the scents of geranium, mint, aniseed and white musk. This is the product for those for whom a post-check-in whiz around the airport Boots just won’t do.
