New Relationship Underscores Gillette’s Commitment to Supporting Men in Achieving Their Best As They Rise to the Top of Their Game.

Gillette®, the world’s leading male grooming brand, today presented a global partnership with Futbol Club Barcelona (FCB). With the shared belief that there are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going, the new relationship solidifies their shared commitment to helping groom the next generation. As a premium partner, Gillette aims to celebrate the role precision plays in putting men on the path to victory, both on and off the pitch.

As one of the best clubs in the world, FCB is unyielding in its commitment to identifying and developing the greatest players from the start, cultivating their skills on the pitch and, as the best a man can get, Gillette relentlessly pursues the creation of high quality, high value razors honed to the finest edge and detail. For both, precision is a core value in helping groom the next generation as they achieve their best. Building on the momentum of an exclusive partnership in Latin America, the expanded partnership now brings the collaboration to the global stage.

Gillette has spent over a century refining and engineering down to the microscopic razor’s edge so that every man can have the advantage of its unparalleled precision. “Partnering with FC Barcelona was a natural fit for Gillette, as both organizations share similar core values—precision being one of them—in our respective pursuits to being the best in the world,” said Francesco Tortora, Gillette global brand director. “We’re excited to promote the world’s most popular sport, while giving fans more opportunities to take part in something they love.”

FCB, one of the most successful teams in the world, values the role precision plays on the pitch, but also when identifying and developing its talent. “As an organization, precision is a key part of our DNA, and honing our skills has enabled us to stay on top as one of the most victorious clubs in the world,” said Manel Arroyo, vice president and director responsible for the area of marketing and communication. “Like Gillette, we believe that even a millimeter can make the difference, and precise play can result in executing a match winning goal or in defeat.”

In addition to its support of FC Barcelona, Gillette is teaming up with one of the club’s star player Neymar Jr. to highlight humorous moments when guys realize their current actions just won’t cut it any more – in life and in shaving. Neymar Jr. is using his own Twitter account to share funny, exaggerated photos of himself before he stepped up, inspiring guys all around the world to look back on their old habits with good humor and realize how far they’ve come.

Neymar Jr. is a global ambassador for Gillette, most recently helping to support the brand’s Rio 2016 Olympic Games campaign, “Perfect Isn’t Pretty.”

Precision Moments on the Pitch

To bring the partnership to life for FCB fans, Gillette will present a “Precision Moments on the Pitch” series on The digital collection will feature highlights from the club’s star players demonstrating precise plays during training as they prepare for upcoming matches. Additionally, Gillette will have a brand presence across FCB’s digital and social channels, as well as in-venue signage.

Epilate, trim and shave every part of your body to perfection with the latest men's body grooming kit by Braun

A hairy chest isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially in over 60% of women's eyes, but we'd all have to admit that a tidy, well-groomed hairy torso is a lot more attractive and desirable to most. That's why the body waxing trend is currently on the wane, in favour of a much less painful option - body grooming kits.

Whether it's a trim, shave or complete hair removal that you are after, Braun's new Body Grooming Kit for men is the perfect multi-tasking three-in-one tool to help you achieve much better looking, neater and tidier body. Simply select your function, set the shaver and you're pretty much ready to go. It's that easy!
After trying out the Braun Body Grooming Kit, it is evident that this tool is the most convenient shaver of its kind on the market. As men approach their 30s and 40s, we don't often care about stray body hairs and overgrown areas on our shoulders and arms. Most of us certainly don't seem to care enough for it to warrant a visit to the local waxing parlour. That's why this tool is so effective and handy for guys that are truly on the go. If, like most guys, you prefer to sport a well trimmed and groomed chest, then this grading product is ideal for helping you get that natural look. It's also handy for guys who want to remove hair completely from areas such as their arms, shoulders and pubic region, without having to go through the hassle of booking an appointment at a waxing studio.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) has a very positive reputation with regards to hair health, and the positive effects it can have on hair growth. As part of our Hair Loss Awareness Month coverage, we look into the powder form and asses if it can actually help prevent balding and thinning hair. 

Here's a quick breakdown of what MSM actually is: Methylsulfonylmethane is an organic sulphur compound that occurs naturally in some plants and foods. It is sold as a dietary supplement, and is commonly used to treat a variety of ailments. MSM has been found to be beneficial in treating osteoarthritis, and it is thought to possibly be helpful in treating other conditions including allergies, snoring, asthma, and back pain-although these uses need more clinical research to substantiate MSM's effectiveness. Most recently, MSM has become a popular supplement for promoting fast, healthy hair growth. MSM can also come in powder form. 
MSM is commonly found in many health products, and pretty much all supplements that are specifically designed for hair maintenance. Various men and women have reported excellent results in their hair after taking MSM through supplement form. MSM is a vital nutrient that the human body needs, and especially efficient for hair health. Using MSM powder over the supplement form is a preference for some, in order to avoid taking it orally via tablet or capsule form. Either way, the effectiveness of MSM is not compromised whichever way it is taken.

How effective is MSM for preventing hair loss?
MSM, like any many other ingredients, can be classified as a hair beneficiary, but it will not cure hair loss. MSM is more effective when used in conjunction with various other hair health ingredients for the very best results. At just £5.99 per bag, MSM powder is an affordable product that should be considered by men looking to prevent early stages of hair fall. 

You will often find MSM included in some of the most effective multi-vitamin hair health supplements on the market, therefore if you don't mind taking capsules and tablets, then you should get your daily dosage via a good hair health supplement. Even as little as 50mg is a good daily dosage to work off - anymore than this is unnecessary. 

When it comes to battling hair loss, it's always worth trying different products and treatments in order to find out what exactly works best for you as an individual. An affordable product like MSM powder will not act as a miracle worker, but it can be a very effective addition to your anti-hair loss armoury. MSM is safe to use, so, by all means, give it a try, and please let us know how you get on with it.


What is saw palmetto and can it really prevent hair loss in men and women, by acting as an effective DHT blocker? Is it safe to take and does it have any side-effects? Here, The Male Grooming Review investigates... 

If you're a avid researcher of hair loss products and treatments, then you'll have no doubt come across the North American plant extract, saw palmetto. It is believed, and claimed by many experts, that saw palmetto has the capacity to block the formation of DHT (the cause of hair loss), thus preventing hair fall and encouraging natural hair growth. So, how much of this is true? As part of our Hair Loss Awareness Month coverage, we look a little deeper into the functions of this fascinating plant.

What is saw palmetto?
Saw palmetto is a small palm with fan-shaped leaves that have sharply toothed stalks, native to the south-eastern US. Saw palmetto's ripe fruit is used to make medicine, but this plant is best known for its use in decreasing symptoms of an enlarged prostate. According to many research studies, it is effective for this use. Saw palmetto is used for treating certain types of prostate infections. It is also sometimes used, in combination with other herbs, to treat prostate cancer.

How is saw palmetto connected with hair loss?
Although initial research and testing was for the purpose of prostate health, various studies showed that men and women experienced less hair fall during their trial period of using saw palmetto. So, much like the development of minoxidil as a hair growth treatment, saw palmetto was in fact discovered to help block DHT by total accident. 

Does saw palmetto prevent hair loss?
There have been no official studies that have factually concluded this statement, but saw palmetto is used widely in many hair growth supplements and serums for the sole purpose of preventing hair loss. Male and female hair loss sufferers have gained positive results from using saw palmetto in an attempt to battle hair loss and thinning hair.
Does saw palmetto have any side-effects? 
For the most part, saw palmetto is safe to take by men and women, although it should be noted that women should not take saw palmetto if they are pregnant or breastfeeding, as this plant acts as a hormone. Very mild side-effects can include stomach discomfort and slight headaches. The side-effects are not long-lasting. Many users make the common mistake of taking too much per day. A safe and effective daily dosage of saw palmetto would be around 250mg-350mg. 

How best to take saw palmetto? 
The most popular and safest way to take saw palmetto is through supplement form, which could be either tablet or capsule. Expect to pay in the region of £15-£20 for a bottle of saw palmetto supplement, but be sure to purchase one with a daily dosage of lower than 500mg. Many users will find it even more beneficial to take saw palmetto with other vitamins such as biotin, in order to help promote hair growth. Multi-vitamin hair health supplements like HR23+ and NUTRAFOL are excellent options to consider, as they use a range of ingredients that work to prevent hair fall and promote hair growth.


As part of our National Hair Loss Awareness Month coverage, we look at one of the best selling and heavily marketed hair health supplements available to men and women - Viviscal.

Everyday stress, poor nutrition, genetics and damage caused by the environment or over styling can all lead to excess hair breakage or shedding. Healthy hair grows in a continuous cyclic pattern and if this is disturbed for any reason it can impact on the health of the hair. Therefore, it’s important to ensure that your diet is rich in specific nutrients and minerals.

The Viviscal Hair Growth and Hair Care Programme provides a variety of ways to nourish your hair from the inside out, and the outside in. Viviscal Man dietary supplements supply vital nutrients, including a unique blend of vitamins and minerals, directly to the hair follicle.

Backed by over 20 years of scientific research, Viviscal Man dietary supplements contain the exclusive marine complex AminoMar® - a rich compound of marine extracts. Plus Zinc, Vitamin C, Horsetail Extract and Flax Seed, to nourish hair from within. 

It should be noted that Viviscal is not a cure for hair loss, but rather a hair health supplement that can encourage healthy hair growth and prevent hair fall. Viviscal is growing in popularity, especially their women's version of the supplement, but much of that is down to the heavy marketing of their products across all major advertising mediums

You can purchase Viviscal from their official website but expect to pay around £40-£50 per month, depending on what quantities you purchase.
