While we could waste time creating a Craig David-style goatee in the morning, sadly that thing called work prevents us from spending too long on our grooming ritual.
Luckily, the mail-order gods at Glossybox have pretty much nailed it for the hectic nine-to-fiver.
Once signed up, every month a box containing a range of products, from shaving to haircare, arrives on your doorstep for you to try. And this month's looks set to be the best yet, which comes courtesy of grooming experts Niven + Joshua.
The trusted retailer has created the limited edition box with a handpicked selection of seven luxury sample sizes from some of the most sought after brands, including eShave, Eyre Biobotanics, Nickel and Molton Brown.
Like a clam that seasons itself before being cooked, anything which makes our lives easier is no bad thing.
