Summer is rolling in down here in the Republic, and that means one thing: a new look. It’s time for that new haircut, a shave or trimming of that winter beard, and a few odds and ends to get you groomed and ready for the warmer weather. MenStuff has picked 10 new items we know will do the trick.


Shredding Oil with Fat-Fighting Marine Complex: AB Crew’s Shredding Oil is a body oil that makes your skin look hydrated, smooth and toned. It’s super-clinical, plant-based, active ingredients target fat under the skin to make you look more defined in no time while anti-ageing complex visibly targets all sorts of problems such as stretch marks, scars, cellulite and irregularities.

Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleaner

Hylamide is a fantastic skincare brand, and their High Efficiency Face Cleaner is a great option for those looking to keep their pores clean and moisturise at the same time. The cleanser is made of Mediterranean Crambe and East Asian Kanuga oils that work with plant-derived esters to eliminate every trace of impurity. As you rinse off, sustainably-sourced Amazonian oils together with purified tomato carotenoids leave behind an innocuous layer of comfortable, non-comedogenic hydration. Unlike traditional oil cleaners, this advanced micro-emulsion does not require using a towel or mitt to clean the face as it rinses off efficiently with water in a single step.
