Over the years, men’s grooming products have become more and more complicated. We get it, you just want to wash your face, clean your torso and perhaps put on the occasional mask when no one’s around. So we’ve cut through the noise to bring to you the best grooming products for your night owl lifestyle, whether you’re a party animal or workaholic.

If you reckon you’re a Frequent Flier or an Active Dude, we have you sorted. We’re also giving away some of the featured grooming products over at grooming.augustman.com, so make haste. You’ll require the promotional code within the June issue, so go grab one at the bookstore. It’s a good read, if we do say so ourselves.
