“The more you know the more you know you don’t know” its one of my all time favourite sayings and something that I keep being reminded lately. I have helped thousands of people as Ireland’s preeminent dating guru but my journey into the world of male grooming has been an eye opener, even for me. As with sport the higher the level you compete at, the finer the margins of victory, in junior football simply be staying in the night before a game can be the key to victory, only a couple of grades up that’s a given.Similarly male grooming has its “junior football” types but as I look at my selection of products I know I’d be ready to line out on the last Sunday in September in the All Ireland Grooming final such is my dedication and diligence. Like GAA it’s about testing different systems and approaches until you find out what works best for you. Thorough cleansing is such an essential but often neglected area of grooming. Too many guys think that exfoliating is just for women, that throwing your head under the shower every morning is fine. Exfoliating is essential to remove the dirt which clogs up your pores and to eliminate blackheads. It also removes the dead skin revealing the healthy layer below which you can use other products to nurture.

I have tried some great scrubs recently but I was genuinely blown away by Thalgo Men’s offering, Algue Bleue Vitale. If this scrub was a Premier League legend it would be Paul Scholes, classy, hardworking not afraid to get stuck in and consistently brilliant. The skin-polishing silica and polyethylene micro-beads eliminate impurities and smooth imperfections ( apparently; I don’t have any) What that means is that its formulated with exfoliating beads which work to wash away oils and other toxins that can clog your pores. The sensation you feel post wash makes me wish it was a daily wash, but the recommendation is once or twice per week and I’d stick to the guidelines here. Apart from the performance of this product a major plus is the scent, the menthol aroma is fresh clean and manly.

I have been using this scrub with the Thalgo Regenerating Cream and they definitely compliment each other, after application my skin is as smooth as one of my dates. I need to give the revitalizing cream a bit more time to judge properly but so far so good. I'll report back with a detailed review in time.  People have comment that my skin is brighter since I started using the products; it’s definitely smoother, more invigorated and clearer. My skin type is normal (the technical term for it, not the opinion of those that get to caresses it…. trust me) but I would say that this product is appropriate for all skin types.

  My single friends are always talking about finding “the one” personally I’m more about “the next one” and don’t believe in love at first sight and all that nonsense. However after trying this Deep Cleanising Scrub maybe true love does exist after all.
