We spoke to Kim White our Guest Groomer on set of our "A Perfect Ten" grooming story where she made sure model Grayson Gettys looked his best.

2. Bamforf Grooming Department Exfoliating Face Wash – Bamford Grooming Department is a range of skin and hair care essentials created by mother and son duo Carole and George Bamford. The former brings to the fray years of expertise producing luxurious skincare and the latter the attention to detail and precision of a fine watch business. This exfoliating face wash sloughs away dead skin using a combination of ginger, black rice and quartz. Charcoal extract helps to balance and purify, and the phytonutrients in Swiss cress work to fight signs of ageing. Massage a small amount onto damp skin before rinsing thoroughly. Follow with the brand's moisturiser.
