All anyone is talking about right now is the new James Bond flick, Skyfall, and I think everyone is having a bit of Bond envy. So in the spirit of cinema, these are my top picks to turn your regular Joe into an international man of mystery.
They say beauty is only skin deep, well so is handsome. It’s a known fact that most men’s face products are chosen by women and I took the liberty of choosing my boyfriend Nivea Visage Control Shine Mattifying Gel Cream from the Nivea Young collection. This oil free, light gel rids your skin of unwanted shine without dehydrating it. Since we live in Australia and the sun is on a murderous rampage and you never see Bond with a sunburn, pair it with Daily Essentials Shine Control day cream also from Nivea Visage. The super light moisturizer is SPF 15 and also regulates the skins oil balance. Best of all, these products cost less than $15 each, so you won’t break the bank leaving you plenty of “money pennies” to spend on other Bond accessories like this smashing black tie from Oxford.
Nothing says ‘Bond’ like a smart black bow-tie. Oxford has a great range of mens accessories and this timeless classic is a steal at $59.00.
For true Bond luxury, indulge in the ultimate Bond girl fantasy and share a martini together, “shaken not stirred”, in some beautiful Italian glass wear by Luigi Bormioli available from David Jones.
So while your man might not be a seductive secret agent, he can at least look the part. And to that I say, meh, close enough!
