Men’s skincare is a growing market, with a wider range of resources, but it still presents itself as a jargon-filled universe for those who know little beyond facial wash and moisturiser. Couple that with the stream of products on the market screaming claims, and you can consider yourself confused.

Something like Tonic Grooming presents a much needed lifeboat in such situations, especially if you’re keen on getting better skin. The online platform customises skincare kits from over 20 reputable brands like Lab Series, Murad, Paula’s Choice and more to suit your specific needs.

Sleek packaging is always a plus.

It begins by filling up a simple assessment form online. The basic option is titled the Two-Step Assessment, where users with problem-free skin and no allergies are asked to select an age range and skin type.

Those with eczema, ageing, acne, or issues like post-shave irritation can opt for the Detailed Assessment. It’s extremely detailed, spanning your skin type, irritated areas, the condition of your pores and the like. Accompanying each choice is an illustration, and a comprehensive explanation to guide the user.

Each kit also comes with an instruction booklet, of sorts.

After the quiz, you’ll be presented with a simple four-product kit, encompassing a cleanser, day and night moisturisers, as well as an exfoliant. Each item comes with numbered tabs corresponding with its place in a skincare routine. If that’s too basic, upgrade to a Quintessential Kit with two additional products, a toner and a serum.

After you select your kit of choice, it gets delivered to your doorstep within one to three business days. Each kit will last you up to three months, priced from S$200 onwards. If you like what you got, choose a subscription service to get the same kit regularly, without having to re-order. As an added bonus, shipping is free.

Tonic Grooming ships to both Hong Kong and Singapore.
