Welcome to part 6 of the series ThatIsBeyond… A colour Story. And this weeks story is Back to Black!

These colour stories explore grooming products, accessories and underwear! They are grouped nicely together in shades of the same tones. This week’s instalment is: Back to Black and features a few skincare items as well as an excellent home fragrances candle! As always this post is a celebration of classic manstyle – so join in with me and let me know in the comments what your top Back to Black products are! Want part 1? Red for Filth or part 2? Out of the Blue part 3? They Call Me Mellow Yellow or part 4? No Little White Lie part 5 is a blast btw Green With Envy

Beauty Pie Bahia de Miel – Candle

The fragrance of the candle is deep and long lasting and really fills the room. With top notes of green basil and licquorice milk there is also balsam within it which adds a freshness as well. This is a strong fragrance and it’s not going to be to everyone’s liking, but for me personally it’s a winner

Emporio Armani boxer briefs

A classic in masculine style, ARMANI is an amazing brand that makes you feel like a million dollars! These boxer briefs are a staple, and I wish I also had them as briefs!

Bumble and Bumble Sumo Tech – Hair wax

This little sample size has travelled all over the place with me. This quality traditional wax holds strong but allows some movement of style too. You only need a tiny bit at the roots to take control of your locks.

Isle Of Harris Rose and Honeysuckle – All purpose balm

I bought this balm on a work trip, to sample gin on the Isle of Harris. As a lip balm it is really nourishing and botanical, but as a general balm for cuts and grazes it is also impressive. I use it on dry skin on my elbows and it really works! I cannot recommend it enough (it was a gift for my wife but I steal it all the time!!!)

Beauty Pie QI energy brightening eye fix cream – Ginseng Root and Ginger

No word of a lie – this is THE best eye cream I have ever used. It’s a high quality product that has a super zing from the ginger in the formulation. It really works. As a tired parent – you can trust me on this!

Lush Grease lightening

Lush is a brand that we all know from the British High Street – cruelty free and that distinct smell as you pass the shop window! Grease lightening is a spot product for direct tackling of the pesky blighters. The gel product drys up the excess oil and tackles spots gently but fast!

Bath and Bodyworks Pocketbac – Bourbon

Whiskey lovers rejoice! This is your antibacterial solution to clean hands. I think it’s great, not technically a black product, but I am am Happy I could include it in the colour stories.

Black Friday… or any day really!

In male grooming, black tends the be the Colour du Jour! It’s almost like manufacturers can’t take a risk that men won’t like a colour!

Black is classic and suits every person of any shape or size, and this little collection in a black colour story shows us that there really is something for everyone.


Note: none of these products were gifted. All opinions are my own and no money or product was received for a feature in this post.
