Metrosexual groom or rugged and raw? Are face masks for men too much?

Would you prefer your man to be a metrosexual groom or a rugged warrior-type for your big day?

It’s a well known fact that men are spending more and more time preening in front of the mirror, and it’s about to get a whole lot longer ladies!

Well-known cosmetics retailer Superdrug has launched a range of face masks designed especially men. The Men’s Invigorating Peel Off Mask, and the Men’s Liquorice Mud Mask with Dead Sea salts are both priced at 99p. According to Superdrug, the products have been developed to target mens skincare needs, containing formulations packed with natural extracts which help give users a refreshed and brighter complexion.

According to a recent Travelodge survey, men are spending 81 minutes a day on personal grooming. This includes cleansing, toning and moisturising, shaving, styling hair and picking out clothes. Women are coming in at just 75 minutes – a far cry from even 10 years ago. The study also found that on an average morning, men spend 23 minutes in the shower, compared to 22 minutes for women.
