The ManCave Back to Uni Checklist

Heading back to uni in a few weeks? Or maybe you're getting ready to start your first term? Either way, it's important to make a good impression

Everyone knows that starting back to uni can be a busy time, you've got new people to meet and hangovers to cope with, so it's understandable that skincare might not be top of your list of things to manage. Chances are you’ll be sharing your bathroom with at least a few others and cleanliness will not be your number one priority. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t keep your grooming routine in check (bad personal hygiene is no-one’s friend).


A good routine can be simple and doesn’t have to take all day. Obviously it’s important to cover the basics with a reliable Shampoo and Shower Gel, but it also goes further than this. You need to follow up with a natural Deodorant that is going to help combat any unwanted odours. It's also a good idea to keep some for your gym bag as they're guaranteed to come in handy. If you're a little more into your haircare routine, then you should also consider throwing in a Conditioner for your routine. This will keep your hair in good condition and help to diminish the need for time consuming styling.  



Moving on from your shower routine, there'll no doubt be many a hangover that you'll need to attempt to hide for your 9am lecture. That's where a simple but regular routine is imperative to a healthy complexion. It’s important to cover the skincare basics by cleansing your face twice a day with a gentle but effective Face Wash followed by a Moisturiser that’s best suited to your skin type.

PRO TIP: To get rid of excess skin and debris build up, it's super effective to carry out an exfoliation with a good scrubber like our Olivestone Face Scrub. This will bring your dull complexion back to life with a deep clean that's guaranteed to wake your senses.
