3 Essential Grooming Steps for the Adventurous Man

In Partnership with GUESS

One of the world’s best purveyors of quality denim and other stylish apparel is getting into the grooming game. Enter GUESS Effect, the brand’s first-ever collection of men’s grooming essentials. Helping spread the word is Italian pro cyclist and model turned reality TV star Ignazio Moser, who’s become the official face of GUESS’s latest campaign. And what a face it is!

In a YouTube video, Moser offers viewers a brief glimpse into his regular beauty regimen. The conspicuously handsome man keeps it relatively simple, shaving first thing in the morning. His favourite product in the GUESS Effect range is currently the shaving oil, which he uses in lieu of shaving foam so as to reduce the possibility of razor burn.

Moser’s girlfriend is Cecilia Rodriguez, an Italian model with a massive online presence. She appears alongside him in assorted campaign videos and brings even more blatant hotness to the table. After expressing appreciation for her boyfriend’s neatly shaved beard, she describes GUESS as being synonymous with beauty, sensuality, and femininity.
