Every year, there are as many grooming product launches as there are Pokémon. How does one sift through the noise and decide which should be on his team?
A panel of judges including group editor John Ng, editor-in-chief Wilson Lim, digital editor Bryan Goh, makeup artist Larry Yeo and dermatologist Dr Teo Wan Lin* have tried and reviewed over 140 products to highlight the cream of the crop.
The result? Our inaugral Men’s Folio Grooming Awards 2020.
These 33 winners aka the best men’s grooming products of 2020 are neither overtly trendily nor do they rely on marketing hyperboles to sell. Instead, they are all-rounder pleasers that are as democratic as they are effective.
