Male grooming has been a tricky subject in the past, but for modern guys, it’s an integral part of the daily routine.
With more and more companies taking notice, there is now a terrific array of grooming gadgets available for men. Whether ‘manscaping’ is your priority or your whiskers are getting a little too long, here are our top picks:
Kohler Moxie Wireless Speaker
The Kohler Wireless Speaker makes showering fun as it means you can play and listen to music, news and other audio in the shower. It neatly syncs with Bluetooth-enabled devices to play your favourite audio, and can be taken in and out of the shower for easy recharging. Unsurprisingly, it’s splash proof and can also be used outside of the shower as a conventional speaker in any room of the house. Bear in mind however, this isn’t an open invitation for an uptake in shower singing!

The Oral-B Pro 6000 removes more plaque than a manual toothbrush, with a round head that oscillates and rotates in a similar fashion to professional cleaning tools.

Braun Cooltec Shaver
Choosing the right electric shaver can be a bit of a hassle, and whilst they are considerably quicker, it’s hard to find the right one for you. A major issue is that the blades often produce heat, which isn’t great, especially if you have sensitive skin. The Braun Cooltec Shaver is purposely designed to prevent this happening. Thanks to it Thermo-Electric-Cooling technology, it simultaneously cools the skin whilst shaving, making it much more of a pleasant process.
