Movember must haves for every moustache!

By Sally Learmouth on November 1st, 2023

Movember has funded more than 1250 men’s health projects since it was established in 2003 and the charity aims to tackle the issues that are most likely to cause death in young men, raising money for projects around mental health issues and suicide prevention, testicular cancer and prostate cancer.

Now a well-recognised event in the annual charity calendar, Movember encourages people to raise money by cultivating a moustache, or by hosting a Mo-Ment – a fundraising event which enables the facially follicular challenged to also get involved!

Luke Benson, celebrity groomer to the likes of Roman and Martin Kemp, Joe Jonas, Tom Grennan and more has been doing the challenge himself, and was affected personally when a close friend tragically took his own life. Luke says, “It makes sense for us as hairdressers and barbers to get involved in Movember as a charity, and I get asked a lot for my moustache tips at this time of year. Advise your clients to use the right products when they’re growing facial hair, even if it is only temporary – it’s really essential to exfoliate the face to free any potential ingrown hairs and soften any stubble. A good trimmer will keep it in shape, remove any stray hairs that start to overhang the lip and ensure it’s tidy during the tedious growth stage. 

“A beard balm will keep moustache hairs soft – Keune Beard Balm is my favourite, and a good moisturiser will refresh the skin and reduce any shaving bumps.”

We’ve rounded up some Movember essentials for your shopping list…

Keune Beard Balm grooms and nourishes beards and moustaches with beeswax for a natural finish and a light hold. Bringing hair care expertise to the face, ingredients include shea butter to nourish beards and avocado and sweet almond oil to hydrate both the beard and the skin underneath.

The DOR Beauty Edit, Hydrate Relax body oil is formulated with only olive oil, beeswax, almond oil, chamomile, and rosemary. 100% natural and free from fillers, petroleum, phthalates and parabens, it’s also locally produced in Greece, is eco-friendly, and has recyclable glass packaging. A multi-purpose wonder, this gender-neutral body oil suits all skin tones and types, even sensitive skin, and is equally effective as a moisturiser, after-sun body care, hair care mask, beard oil, and even body perfume.

Cult brand Aesop’s Moroccan Neroli Shaving Duet is a vegan pre and post shave double act to prep skin for shaving and hydrate and nourish afterwards.

Fur shave cream is a protective shaving cream with a moisturising formula allowing the razor to glide across the skin resulting in zero razor burn, fewer ingrown hairs, bumps, and irritation. Enriched with olive oil, aloe, coconut, and marshmallow, this shave cream is vegan, and free from parabens, silicones, and phthalates.

Ashmira Botanica Protective face cream is the only cream with SPF15 designed to help with the little white spots that can appear on the top lip or eyebrows a few days after waxing, while Multi Active Ingrown Serum is a triple action roller to help prevent and rid ingrown hairs and help hair to grow back more finely.

Babyliss’ hair trimmer is essential for keeping it neat – lightweight and with precise blade technology for smooth cutting, it can be used corded or cordless at home or on the go. Includes a range of lengths, full stainless-steel blades, cleaning brush, oil and storage pouch.
