If you always wondered what he slaps on that mug that it… then you’re in luck today, ‘cos, the kind folks over at GQ India took the initiative and, actually, demystified it all for us ;-) SO, here it goes…

A manly drill sergeant of a soap – just lifting it works your biceps. Plus, its built-in scrub particles will exfoliate you to within an inch of your life. “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the shower!” you can almost hear it taunting you.

Tingly, mentholy goodness in this genius 2-in-1 invention. It’s a facial cleanser and a shave gel in one, which means packing one less product when I’m on the move.

Açaí Damage-Protecting Toning Mist by Kiehl’s

I’m not sure what this really does and only just learnt to pronounce açaí correctly, but, holy spritz is it refreshing! I use it as an aftershave, after a shower or just as a pick-me-up.

Fresh and natural with a hint of bohemia.

A great hair product for someone like me who hates hair products. De-fluffs, gives a nice amount of control and, most importantly, doesn’t smell like a pineapple daiquiri.

A good case for not judging a book by its cover. It is light, effective and, true to its name, perfect for the Indian summer. I discovered this by accident while on holiday in Goa and its fresh, clean fragrance always takes me back there. I don’t wear sunscreen everyday, but this one is ideal for a week at the beach/day by the pool/hike in the hills.

Much as I hate watching pointless bloodshed, I find not looking in the mirror while shaving just makes it worse. My skin’s sensitive and prone to cuts, so I shave in the shower. The steam softens the beard, making it a less gruesome affair.
