Grooming Awards Winners 2012

This morning in Harrods' Penthouse, ShortList handed out awards to the twenty grooming products that were considered the very best of 2012.

Attending were the industry's finest (they smelled exceptional, like dreamcake), including E. Tautz designer Patrick Grant, sporting his trademark beard and slick suit, (he won the Face of 2012, no less).

The many hundreds of entries were whittled down to a shortlist by our expert grooming team, including our Style Director Adrian Clark. We then profiled each product online at Shortlist.com and allowed the readers to review and rate them.

See our list of very deserving winners in the gallery below. Applaud too. That’s not weird. On your own. At your desk.
