It is no secret that I adore Tom Ford, ever since he was the chief designer with Gucci and YSL I have had a healthy obsession with him. One that my husband and bank manager would rather I did not have! Picture me in the Tom Ford boutique in New York buying a pair of sunglasses that I decided not to look at the price of and realising a few hours later that they cost over $800.00, a shocking amount to spend on sunglasses and what is truly sad is that I sat on them about a week later and could not get them fixed. I just realised that I have managed to destroy three pairs of Tom Ford Glasses in the past, I really need to be more careful!
Did you get a load of Juan, the poster boy for the campaign? Is he a hotty or wha??
“Fine grooming is the mark of a modern gentleman. It is the way a man presents the best version of himself to the world.”—Tom Ford
Anyway, Tom Ford Beauty is bringing out a whole mens skincare range next month. And as always with Tom Ford products they do not disappoint. Tom Ford believes that any man can achieve a handsome and impeccable look with a straightforward and effective grooming regimen. Inspired by this philosophy and by his personal grooming ritual, he developed TOM FORD FOR MEN, a collection of essential tools a man needs to look his very best. The collection has six multi-functional skincare products that have really lightweight textures which also perform to the highest standards. There are also two grooming products in the collection that when used correctly will not be noticeable but will change the appearance of your skin. When developing TOM FORD FOR MEN, Tom Ford looked to Eastern traditions and Western science to bring us the perfect set of products that will counteract the signs of fatigue, late nights and outdoor sports has on the skin. Utilising the finest combinations of plant extracts, botanical agents, antioxidants, and soothing ingredients with anti-irritant properties, he developed three high- performing complexes to help deep clean, soothe and rejuvenate the look of the skin.
The TOM FORD PURIFYING COMPLEX, found in Tom Ford’s cleanser, frees skin of dulling and damaging toxins by using plant extracts to promote purification and reduce irritating environmental pollutants. It breaks down the impurities that rob skin of vitality and saturates skin cells with botanical agents, leaving skin clean and looking refreshed.
The TOM FORD SKIN CALMING COMPLEX, found in Tom Ford’s facial treatments, fuses a combination of calming, soothing and conditioning ingredients with anti- irritant properties that help to minimise the appearance of skin irritation and redness. The Skin Calming Complex helps create a barrier to defend skin against the detectable effects of environmental pollutants and toxic stressors, leaving skin nourished, looking healthy and feeling comfortable.The TOM FORD INFUSING COMPLEX, also found in Tom Ford’s facial treatments, infuses skin with a potent combination of nutrients that help skin stimulate its natural renewal mechanisms. By helping skin cells replenish their natural energy, it fundamentally rejuvenates the look of the complexion, so it looks and feels fresher and less tired, as well as helping to protect the skin, leaving it looking renewed, resilient and smoother.
“Fine grooming starts with the habit of looking closely at your face. Learn to see what your skin needs. Is it dry? Oily? Depleted and stressed? Take care of that with a few quick steps, then camouflage any imperfections. And, if you need it, use a bronzer to add a natural tint of colour. These are things most men could easily do, but don’t.” —Tom Ford

This water-activated, foaming gel cleanser includes 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. Skin feels refreshed and deeply cleansed.
TOM FORD FOR MEN OIL-FREE DAILY MOISTURISER A hydrating and conditioning moisturiser is an essential part of a man’s skin care regime. This fast-absorbing and skin-mattifying moisturiser uses the Tom Ford Skin Calming and Infusing Complexes with a combination of luxurious butters to hydrate skin, reduce dullness and help reduce the look of fine lines and pores. Skin is left feeling toned, polished and bright with vibrant energy.
TOM FORD FOR MEN ANTI-FATIGUE EYE TREATMENT The eyes are the first place to show signs of fatigue and aging.

The highly effective formula lifts and firms the look of skin around the eyes, helping to diminish the look of lines and wrinkles. Its unique, silver-tip applicator helps to cool skin and reduce puffiness, leaving eyes looking refreshed and energised.
TOM FORD FOR MEN HYDRATING LIP BALM. This ultra-emollient lip balm contains a unique blend of Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Extract, and vitamins A and E to soothe and condition dry lips. The balm seals in moisture, helping to protect lips from the effects of any kind of weather so they feel comfortable and look impeccable.

TOM FORD FOR MEN PURIFYING MUD MASK A man’s lifestyle can stress and deplete the skin of energy. Tom Ford’s time-signaling Mud Mask is uniquely designed to counter these dulling and irritating effects. The mask starts out dark gray, and then turns a light gray to signal that it is has drawn out the oil, dirt and toxins, and is working to diminish tension lines. Upon removal, skin feels clean, hydrated and conditioned and looks youthful and revitalised.
TOM FORD FOR MEN SKIN REVITALIZING CONCENTRATE This treatment oil contains the highest concentration of the Tom Ford Skin Calming and Infusing Complexes, plus essential oils and other enriching natural ingredients. This is Tom Ford’s essential product to combat the look of fatigue that can be caused by late nights, pollution and travel. Multifunctional, it renews the look of skin while you sleep, and it conditions the skin before shaving, and it soothes it afterwards. Lightly scented with an addictive blend of vanilla, patchouli and bergamot, this serum adds ultra-hydration and nourishment to the skin that help to energise and renew its appearance.
TOM FORD CONCEALER FOR MEN Tom Ford thinks every man should look closely at his face to detect redness, blemishes, under-eye circles or razor nicks, and camouflage them with natural-looking coverage. This concealer in a practical, twist-up stick is a simple tool designed to seamlessly and imperceptibly blend into the skin as it hides imperfections. Available in three shades. I am not sure if the general population is ready for this, but it is a wonderful concealer that has the lightest texture, so ladies when it comes out check this out for yourself.
TOM FORD FOR MEN BRONZING GEL Tom Ford developed this bronzer to mimic the look of a few minutes of sun on the skin. Its water-based, oil-free formula blends in effortlessly, enhancing the skin with a healthy looking touch of colour. It can easily be layered to increase the intensity of the skin’s tone. The unique blend of ingredients includes the Tom Ford Skin Calming and Infusing Complexes to soothe and energise. My Glenn is a big fan of this, and it really makes a difference to your skin, making you look much more heathly.
TOM FORD FOR MEN will be available at Brown Thomas Dublin & Cork counters from November 4th and prices start at €24.00.
