When I started MANFACE back in 2011, there were only a handful of grooming blogs available. Since the big grooming boom that started around 2014/15, there has been an influx of some truly excellent writers, influencers, YouTubers and bloggers. Below are my favourite mix of men’s grooming blogs, made up of new discoveries, industry friends and those from back in the day:

MANFACE Skincare Blog


I’ve been writing about skincare since 2011 and started my career working with some of the world’s biggest brands. I write about skincare based on ingredients and accuracy of promise whilst trying to dispell much of the marketing hype. I take a universal approach to skincare; it doesn’t have to have ‘men’ written on it for men to use it.

The Grooming Guru


I have known Lee since starting blogging. One of the industry’s most respected journalists, he writes for an untold number of publications and is also the Telegraph’s resident grooming expert. He writes sporadically, but when he does, it’s always worth a read.

Mr Wharf


I’ve known Jon for a very long time and his love of skincare is palpable. He’s definitely a men’s grooming blogger but as do I, focuses on unisex skincare and doesn’t stand on pomp and ceremony even in the face of some of the industry’s biggest brands. His reviews are honest and a fun read.

The Exfoliator


Ahmed is another men’s grooming industry veteran and like Lee Kynaston, was probably the only other male grooming and skincare blog aimed at men available when I started all those years ago. Although not updated particularly often, Ahmed is always on the button of the industry with latest launches and trends; you can also find a list of the publications he writes for on his sidebar.

Man For Himself


Where do I start with Robin? One of the funniest, nicest and hardworking men’s grooming YouTubers out there. Starting originally as The Utter Gutter (hence the YouTube URL) he specialised in hair videos, and even today, what he doesn’t know or can’t do with hair isn’t worth knowing. His content is always on the cusp of trend as well as interviews with some of the world’s biggest celebs. He’s not one to be missed so go like, comment and subscribe.
