However, it’s not all fun and staches – Movember is about highlighting men’s health. In South Africa, Movember is licensed by the Men’s Foundation to provide fixed-term sustainable programmes surrounding prostate and testicular cancer, mental health issues and the impact of physical inactivity facing the South African male population.
Doing Movember means raising funds for these health programmes. And growing a Mo is your chance to do your part for the cause. Start clean shaven, grow throughout the month, and get some serious funds behind the men who need it most. Need to know how to Mo? Find out here.
Want to keep your Mo looking fresh throughout the month? Or how about after? Here’s the ultimate grooming guide to keep you looking sharp all Movember, and beyond.
Kiehl’s Creative Cream Wax
This unique cream-wax creates diverse looks with mouldable, long-lasting hold, allowing hair to be re-shaped throughout the day. The non-greasy formula adds definition to hair without the buildup, and allows for creative control for all hair types and moustaches.
Kiehl’s Nourishing Beard Oil
From scruff to a full-grown beard, Kiehl’s grooming oil smooths and tames facial hair. The 99.8% naturally derived grooming oil softens hair while soothing the feel of skin under the beard for a more comfortable and touchable beard. The lightweight formula absorbs quickly and is designed to be applied in the morning and at night. The blend of essential oils infused in the formula also offers a fresh, woodsy, aromatic experience to the application of the oil.
The Bluebeards Revenge Face Scrub
When first growing out your beard, it can become very itchy and scratchy during the first few days. To lessen these effects while your skin gets used to being covered by hair, try exfoliate with a mild facial scrub like this one from Revenge. The exfoliating action softens the outer layer of hair made from keratin, allowing moisturisers and water to enter and soften the hair.
Customised to meet both skincare and beard growth needs, experience your healthiest skin ever with this simple, three-step regimen.

More about Sorbet MAN

They’re a neat, discreet, you’re-in-and-you’re-out operation with a straight-no-chaser attitude when it comes to what they believe sets men – real men – apart: good grooming.
Think hot towel shaves and even hotter haircuts; keeping unwanted hairy situations tidy (man up to the wax, guys) and the kind of man-icured hands James Bond would boast while handling a well-deserved martini.

Considered among the best barbers in Johannesburg and Cape Town, they’re a team of professionals who are here for the regular guy: the quintessential SA dude who can suit up, glove up, dad up and man up to invest in his swagger, in a gentlemen’s bar that doubles-up as a new-age man cave.
