Possibly the freshest smell in the world is encapsulated in a product that's basic enough for the coarsest men (or, similarly, coarse enough for the most basic men). An all-over, granular exfoliant to free dead skin cells and smoothe your skin. Anthony Logistics Sea Salt Body Scrub - £25 - www.mankind.co.uk

Aesop Moroccan Neroli Shaving Serum - £21.50 - www.mankind.co.uk
A redolent, herbal serum that releases just the right amount of liquid in one press of the pump, this affords a nick-free barrier for even the most careless blade wielders. As it's a serum and not a gel, foam, or cream, it won't make your stubble cling to the basin either. Shaving perfection.
Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion - £23.40 - www.dermalogica.co.uk
Excess oil production can make men shine for all the wrong reasons, and this lightweight lotion from Dermalogica is one of the oldest (and best) solutions for so-called 'Formica face' syndrome. Fragrance-free, it absorbs easily and provides an all-day, matte finish.
