With all my apologies to bump a two year old-thread and without wanting to influence the poll in any way, I just realized how much my grooming habits have changed, improved and expanded, partly also under the influence of Basenotes (I was pretty well-groomed before, but never so interested and even fond of it, as I am at this point).
Switched to DE shaving and thus finally overcame my reluctance about daily shave, thus shaving daily. Larger quantities of moisturizers both for body and face used daily. Far more than the daily shower or the showers taken a few times a day. No alcohol-based aftershave, using creams and lotions instead of this, also thorough cleansing and moisturizing my face 2-3 times a day, applying a face peeling at least once a week. Also, without being on a diet or a fitness/wellness fanatic, more careful about my nourishment and even timidly started to work out daily, albeit with very light exercises.
More frequent body hair removal, also haven't given up on my dream on permanent hair removal, especially in the face area as a possible substitute to shaving.
All in all, more rituals and routines, also marked by a gradual separation from most cosmetic and grooming products containing parabens and alcohol. Also, more time in front of the mirror, not just for my routines, but also for a last visual checkup as to whether my grooming/body and face care was precise, meticulous and effective enough.
And oh, both my clothes and my fragrance wardrobe have expanded in the meantime, with some wristwatch purchases and regular expansion of the range of cosmetics used by me thrown in for the extra kicks.
Yet I stayed quite "natural" in my opinion, no plastic surgery, nothing foppish, tacky or artificial, not even increasingly popular guy-liner/man-liner is ever going to be used, instead opting for buying organic (or so do their brands claim) cosmetic and grooming products as often as possible, while my rather puristic, formal and classic fashion taste remains the same.
