It didn’t feel quite right calling this blog post ‘My Boyfriend’s Beauty Routine’, so I settled for ‘Grooming’ instead! Although most of my followers and viewers are female, I know that I have some guys who watch my videos and read my blog so this might just come in handy!
My boyfriend, Tiz, is a web PHP developer (you can find his website HERE), is 22 years old and is a fairly typical man; he likes to do bits and pieces when it comes to grooming, but doesn’t stress too much about having too formal a routine.
The photo above is from a couple of years ago when Tiz was doing some modelling – he doesn’t usually wear eyeliner but I thought it portrayed him well at his most groomed!
Here’s a run-down of his grooming routine.
In terms of cleansing, although I’ve tried to get him into a proper routine Tiz only uses Simple Soap on his face. This works well for him, so I tend to leave him to it!
I hope he doesn’t mind you telling me this, but…for inbetween his eyebrows, I cut up some Superdrug wax strips to use on him, and he finds it quite convenient! They work so well and are much quicker than the plucking I used to subject him to!
To keep his stubble under control, Tiz uses the Babyliss iStubble. He really likes it, and has mentioned that it’s one of the best shaving products he’s come across.
Tiz has naturally quite wavy hair, so once he’s washed it with his Alberto Balsam shampoo, he straightens with his GHD’s.
In terms of styling, he uses the Wella Shockwaves range to either spike his hair up or smooth it down. I like it best when he creates a flick towards the front of his hair – his dad is a hairdresser and has taught him well!
That’s about it – I’m intrigued to know whether you feel this is fairly typical for a 22 year old guy who takes pride in his appearance. Please feel free to let me know!
