Saunders & Long, Luxury mens grooming, Stylish and efficient
With the amount of travelling I do I have to be very organised, therefore I have a permanent travel toilet bag, but it’s bulky…deodorant, shower gel shampoo and conditioner, hair grooming and face wash, they all take up so much room and weigh quite a lot too!
So when I was sent a lovely selection of Saunders & Long luxury men’s grooming products I was more than happy to trial them. Founded in London by Nick Saunders and Jonny Long the range has a contemporary and stylish look, the bottles and jars are beautifully shaped, they are black and gold and there’s no mistaking they are for men, the range includes all products hair and skincare.
The products have been created through painstaking research and development by Jonny Long, in collaboration with former C0-President of Kiehl’s, Klaus Heidegger and Stephen Musumcci, who was Cheif Chemist at both Kiehls and Bumble & Bumble. The scents have been created by Francois Robert, one of the world’s most respected perfumers.
By a long way, my favourite product is ‘The Long Weekender’ (£26). This is a dream item, it is a 5-in-1 product, and it really does do it all. This is a face and body wash, shampoo and conditioner, shaving cream and dry hair groomer all in one. The Long Weekender can be used in the shower to wash and condition your hair as well as your face and body, foam it up for a shave and it’s perfect as a kind of leave-in conditioner on dry hair. I really enjoyed using this, I have very short hair so I didn’t need too much and I feel this one bottle will last a very long time.
Saunders & Long do of course make a whole range of individual products too, shampoo, conditioner, hair grooming, facial moisturiser and eye cream. Being married to an X beauty therapist I have always had a skincare routine, I say routine, really just facial wash and moisturiser. Saunders & Long Foaming Cleanser can be used for both the face and body and has a rich smooth feel to it, leaving my skin feeling fresh and hydrated before I even add the moisturiser. With a liquid base that foams through an aerating delivery system, it provides a rich and efficient cleanse. The glycerine ingredient allows the skin to absorb moisture, protecting it from dryness and giving it a soft and supple feel. Follow this with the moisturiser and eye cream and the routine is complete in just three simple steps. The moisturiser is rich in vitamin A, B, C and is easily absorbed and suitable for all skin types.
For me, personally, I felt all of the Saunders & Long products are deep cleansing and thoroughly hydrating and make a great addition to any man’s bathroom cabinet.
The price point in my opinion for the quantity is really reasonable, I can most confidently recommend Saunders & Long.
