Hawkins & Brimble Grooming Collection Review
It’s time to upgrade your grooming regime with the new collection from Hawkins & Brimble – in my latest blog post; I take a look at their range which is available now!
First up in the collection, we have the classic face wash, containing Elemi & Ginseng and held within a 150ml tube. The gel-based liquid has a refreshing fragrance and a soft texture which is easily rubbed into the skin, leaving your face stimulated and rejuvenated. The gold award-winning wash contains Aloe Barbadenis leaf juice, which is highly coveted and renowned for its soothing properties and will help to nourish and condition the skin.
Next up we have the daily moisturising cream, which again includes Elemi & Ginseng which no doubt gives the cream its distinct odour (smells so good you almost want to taste it!). The moisturiser comes packaged within a sleek brown tinted glass bottle which will surely stand out against your other grooming products. The cream itself is a joy to the skin, leaving no excess residue, and additionally is dispensed using a spray nozzle for ease of use. The cream contains Avena Sativa Kernel Oil and oatmeal extract, which utilising a variety of omegas and vitamins helps to combat rough and dull-looking skin and to restore a healthy PH balance.

Following on from the previous product is another moisturising cream only this time possessing oil control, which aims to remove excess oil from the skin and also control sebum production. The packaging is once again the classy looking brown glass bottle containing 100ml which will keep you going for some time! The consistency of the cream is once again soft to the touch and massages into the skin well, leaving your skin with a matt appearance as you would expect from an oil-controlling product. The cream is packed with Vitamin E to keep your skin energised and healthy. Additionally, the moisturising contains caffeine to bring your skin back to life after one too many late nights!
Sometimes you just need to go back to basics and opt for a classic luxury soap, constructed in a rectangular shape and featuring the brand name embossed onto the surface of the bar itself. Straight out of the box you can feel it’s soft texture against your hands, but once lathered up with water you can truly feel the amazing consistency of the soap as it brushes over your skin with its formulated elemi essential oil.
When you finish your shave, it is essential to replenish moisture into the skin, and the aftershave balm from Hawkins & Brimble does just that. Packaged inside a plastic tube containing 125ml, the balm massages into the skin effortlessly and the smell is fantastic (as with all of their products). The mix of almond oil, olive oil and cocoa combines to ensure your skin is hydrated and left feeling smooth after shaving. It is suitable for every skin type and can additionally be used as a daily moisturiser (which is an added bonus).
The brands shaving cream is the perfect addition to your grooming regime with its silky texture enabling you to build up a good lather before transferring to your face, ensuring a close shave. The cream benefits from using the highly regarded coconut acid – cleaning the skin below your hair follicles, which in turn helps to prevent skin irritations, in-grown hairs and can even help to combat acne. The cream is packaged inside a stylish silver metal tin, containing 100ml of cream providing you with a more than ample supply.
As to be expected, Hawkins & Brimble have an excellent bit of kit in their shaving brush to complement their top quality shaving products. The brush is entirely synthetic, with all of the hairs man-made. The bristles are dense but also soft, ensuring you can get a fully even spread of shaving cream across your face and neck.
