Men: You’ve been doing this dating thing wrong
PSA to all the men swiping right on the beautiful babes of Aus: PREP, PREP, PREP!!! Nothing is more key to nailing that dreaded first date impression (especially if you haven’t met before) than looking yourself up and down in the mirror and investing in a quick ‘manscape’. Heck, not only will you look/smell a whole heap better, you’ll feel it too.
We asked the fabulous and flirty GG team what they thought was important to prep for a first date, and here are the results:
Now, you don’t have to be a #fashionista, but you do need to look somewhat presentable. We love a man in active wear, but not on a first date! And be sure to *think* about where you’re going, and dress for the occasion. It’s simple. Oh, and we strongly encourage you to not wear hoodies, dirty sneakers or smelly clothes. Just… no.
Men, feel free to make that beard fluffy and soft as can be (it’ll give you points when you go in for that awkward-but-sweet first kiss). We recommend the Urbane Mess Beard Oil. As the brand themselves say “don’t let your beard get weird”, so if you’re feeling like your beard has gotten a little out of control, hook yourself up with a Beard Maintenance Kit.
A shower and a spritz of aftershave will leave a longer lasting impression than your story about that time you crowd-surfed at a Blink 182 gig – trust us. We love the smell of this Urbane Grit Man Soap in the scent Oatmeal & Black Pepper… just saying 😉
It’s all in the hair! Really – you don’t have to be a pro to be able to rub some product between your palms and tousle it through your mop. With a product like the Urbane Mess Styling Fibre, you can make your locks appear thicker and more luscious – who could say no to that!? We’re talking hair that looks like you didn’t try, (but you really did).
Once you’ve tamed your luscious locks, beard, and your outfit is under control, it’s time to achieve silky smooth, touchable (see where we’re going with this?) skin. Our go-to skincare for men is quite literally called Go-To (by living legend Zoe Foster-Blake), and their Bro-To Very Useful Face Cream and Cleanser will up your game tenfold.
