anti-aging products

Here are our favourite anti-aging products (that actually work)

Gentleman’s Journal brings you the definitive guide on how to age handsomely...

The days when a splash of soap and water finished with a spritz of aftershave were all that was expected of a ‘well-groomed man’ are now long gone. The market for male anti-aging products is booming as the crow’s feet and furrowed brow, that look so dashing on the likes of George Clooney and Bill Nighy, just seem to make the average man look knackered.

Unhelpfully, the world of anti-aging products can be a confusing one for the uninitiated. But don’t panic if you don’t know your Vitamin B from your Coenzyme Q10, we’ve done the hard work for you and comprised our list of the top anti-aging creams, serums and cleansers that will keep you looking fresh even in the harshest of inner-city office environments.
