The time has come; the hotly anticipated Tom Ford for Men grooming, or beauty, range has dropped both in the UK and USA, with all eight products now ready to buy from Harvey Nichols in the UK and Bergdorf Goodman in the USA. With many a man spluttering at a range that has a massive emphasis on cosmetics, you do have to stop and think that one in ten guys now openly admit to some facial enhancement through make-up, whilst this figure in some Asian countries is about 21 percent. However, this range from Tom Ford is not about short term fixes – bar a couple of items – but long term skin care that is beneficial for many years to come. Knowing that the man himself looks many years younger than he is, this range – in partnership with Estee Lauder – reflects his own regime; cleansing and moisturising twice a day.
The packaging is as decadent as you would expect from Tom Ford, and the adverts as hormonaly appealing, featuring his favourite model Yuan Betancourt, as usual from the man who could sell sex to a madam of the night. But what makes up the range? As you can see, the prices are not expensive but these are investment pieces however they do have a expertise and technology from the afore mentioned Estee Lauder who holds the lisence for the Tom Ford fragrances. I will indeed be putting these on my Christmas list…and I expect most of you will be too. 
1) Anti-Fatigue Eye Treatment – £55/$75 – This multi-beneficial, restorative eye treatment, infused with the Tom Ford Skin Calming and Infusing Complexes, to lift and firm the look of the skin around the eyes, helps to diminish the look of lines and wrinkles. The silver tip applicator helps to cool your skin to help reduce visible puffiness, leaving your eyes looking refreshed and awake. The Skin Calming Complex helps to minimise skin irritation and redness and create a barrier to defend skin against the visible effects of pollution and toxic stressors, whilst the Infusing Complex helps to infuse skin with specially selected nutrients that help skin stimulate its natural repair mechanisms. It fundamentally rejuvenates the look of the complexion, so your face looks and feels fresher and less tired, while protecting it with antioxidants. 
2) Concealer – £32/$40 – Every man’s face occasionally suffers from redness, blemishes, under-eye circles or razor nicks. These things can be swiftly camouflaged with concealer in a natural looking way. Tom Ford For Men Concealer is a practical, simple tool: a twist-up stick that is offered in three shades. It can be applied with your fingers after your moisturiser or eye treatment, and it will seamlessly blend into the skin as it hides imperfections.
3) Hydrating Lip Balm – £20/$25 – One of the simplest things a man can do to improve his looks is to combat dry lips and improve their smoothness and texture. Tom Ford’s ultra emollient lip balm contains a unique blend of natural oils, vitamins and butters to soothe and condition. The balm seals in moisture, helping to protect lips from the effects of any kind of weather so they look and feel comfortable.
4) Revitalizing Skin Concentrate – £110/$150 – When your skin is depleted or dry, adding a multifunctional treatment oil into your regime before moisturising is one of the simplest ways to energise and regenerate it. This concentrate contains the highest concentration of the Tom Ford Skin Calming and Infusing Complexes, plus essential oils and other enriching natural ingredients. It deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin and it conditions it before shaving and soothes it afterwards. Your skin has fewer fine lines and greater resilience against damage. It fundamentally rejuvenates the look of the complexion, so your face looks and feels fresher and less tired, while protecting it with antioxidants. 

5) Intensive Purifying Mud Mask – £45/$60 – A weekly clay mask treatment is integral to a grooming routine. Tom Ford developed this time signaling Mud Mask to counter the dulling and irritating effects of a busy lifestyle on the skin. As the mask turns light gray, it draws out oil, dirt and toxins and diminishes tension lines. When you rinse it off, your skin feels clean, hydrated and conditioned.
6) Purifying Face Cleanser – £35/$48 – Tom Ford developed this water activated, foaming gel cleanser to condition while it cleanses. It features the Tom Ford Purifying and Skin Calming Complexes to leave skin exceptionally clean without tightness or dryness. Its lightweight formula conditions and hydrates the skin as it unclogs pores and prepares skin for a smooth shave. It rinses beautifully without drying, so your face looks and feels smooth, refreshed and energised. The Tom Ford Purifying Complex helps to free the skin of dulling and damaging toxins by using plant extracts to promote purification and reduce irritating environmental pollutants, whilst the Skin Calming Complex helps to minimise skin irritation and redness and create a barrier to defend skin against the visible effects of pollution and toxic stressors.
7) Oil Free Daily Moitsuriser – £75/$105 – A hydrating and conditioning moisturiser is essential to achieving well kept skin. This lightweight, quick absorbing, skin mattifying moisturiser uses the Tom Ford Skin Calming and Infusing Complexes with a combination of luxurious butters to hydrate your skin, help reverse dullness and help reduce the look of fine lines and pores. It leaves your face looking toned, polished and re-energised. The Tom Ford Skin Calming Complex helps to minimise skin irritation and redness and create a barrier to defend skin against the visible effects of pollution and toxic stressors. The Infusing Complex helps to infuse skin with specially selected nutrients that help skin stimulate its natural repair mechanisms. It fundamentally rejuvenates the look of the complexion, so your face looks and feels fresher and less tired, while protecting it with antioxidants.
8) Bronzing Gel – £35/$48 – Tom Ford developed this bronzer to mimic the look of a few minutes of sun on the skin and lift the complexion with a healthy ooking touch of colour. It is made with a water based, oil free formula that blends in easily without masking your skin’s natural goodness, and features the Tom Ford Skin Calming and Infusing Complexes to calm and comfort the skin. The Bronzing Gel can be used all over the face, or simply swiped onto the places the sun would naturally hit you harder: the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and the top of the forehead. It fundamentally rejuvenates the look of the complexion, so your face looks and feels fresher and less tired, while protecting it with antioxidants.
