King C. Gillette revolutionised the male grooming experience with the development of the safety razor in 1901, an innovation which made the ritual of at home daily grooming a mainstay for men across the world.

This Spring, Gillette launched a new brand in his name, promising to give men with facial hair the ultimate at-home grooming experience, no matter what their facial style is or how locked down they are.

Inspired by more than 115 years of innovation and grooming experience, the grooming facial haircare range is a collection of tools and facial products that are crafted to help men perfect their unique look and enhance their personal grooming ritual.

The King C. Gillette tools, accessories and facial hair care products promise to support men with facial hair to look and feel their best every day by giving them the best tools of the trade to master their personal at-home grooming regime.

Gary Coombe, CEO, Gillette commented: “All men have their own grooming styles and at home rituals which are personal to them, and so we’ve put all our years of shaving experience together with the very best razor, hair and skin care technologies to create this full range of tools, accessories and care products to meet all the grooming needs of all men.

"It’s the one-stop shop for grooming that men have been looking for.”
