Three of our Real Men’s Panel pick their favourite grooming products on sale from Boots.com and tell us why they’ll love using them this spring.

L'Oréal Men Expert Hydra Energetic Anti-Fatigue Moisturising Lotion

What the product says:
‘Leaves the skin looking relaxed, recharged and healthy.’

Darren Donaldson, 26, says:
‘I always use moisturiser but I really loved the way this product felt against my skin. As soon as I put it on in the morning it absorbed easily and left my face feeling instantly hydrated and soothed.’


No7 For Men Protect & Perfect Anti-Ageing Serum

What the product says
‘Delivers younger-looking skin in just four weeks.’

James Downs, 60, says:
‘This did exactly what it says on the tin, made my skin really soft, firmer and lines were smoother. I wouldn’t usually use a serum but the first day I tried this I felt it helped protect against the cold weather. My face felt moisturised all day too even though I only put it on once in the morning.’


Nivea For Men Energy Invigorating Face Scrub

What the product says:
‘Helps to clear away built-up dirt, dry rough skin and prevent clogged pores.’

Philip Crooke, 43, says:
‘I was a bit dubious about this product as it’s got rough particles in but they felt really good on the skin and I definitely felt fresher and cleaner afterwards.’


L'Oréal Elvive For Men Regenium XY

What the product says:
‘Visibly thicker and stronger, hair has more body, an improved texture and is easier to control. The effect is a denser head of hair providing better scalp coverage that looks natural.’

David Shelley, 56, says:
‘I usually buy any shampoo, but after a couple of weeks’ use, this product appears to have thickened my hair so much that I’m off for a haircut! I’ll definitely use this again.’


Lab Series Moisture Defence Lotion SPF 15

What the product says:
‘Provides continuous, all-day moisturising and environmental defence for fresher, smoother and healthier looking skin.’

James Downs, 60, says:
‘A real winner for me! Lotion was really creamy, so only needed a small amount each day. But it really worked, it made my skin feel soft and smooth after just three days and felt it took a couple of years off my age. Without a doubt, will be buying this in the future.’
