For guys who worry that looking after their skin puts them at risk of loosing lad points, I introduce you to Rhino Skin Armour, the first rugby-branded grooming range for men, based on the Rhino Rugby principles of reliability, toughness, performance and integrity.

For those not in the know, Rhino Rugby is one of the leading providers in rugby equipment and this range sees it’s first foray into the world off the pitch, and into the changing room.

The range offers a four-step program; a face wash, a scrub, an aftershave balm and a moisturiser.

All of the products have been tested and researched to provide the best multi-tasking actives to offer real results. The range doesn’t contain SLS or parabeans and isn’t tested on fluffy bunnies.

Anti-bacterial Face Wash
Packed with anti-oxidant Spinach and Green Tea, this facial wash is great for helping to prevent breakouts. The Sunflower and Coconut oils help to moisturise your skin and the Tea Tree helps fight bacteria.

Anti-redness Facial Moisturiser
This moisturiser contains Aloe Vera, Argan Oil and a botanical complex to help soothe redness, calm irritation and keep skin hydrated.

In-grow Ease Aftershave Balm
Contains Allantoin, and Glycolic Acid to help reduce ingrown hairs and botanical lipids to help restore natural oils lost during shaving.

Pore-reducing Facial Scrub
Packed with Pumice Stone to help remove blackheads and dead skin, the facial scrub also contains Aloe Vera to soothe and help tighten up pores.


Out of the range I tried the wash and the balm; The Rhino Skin Armour range is simple and effective the products aren’t overbearing fragrance wise and I didn’t have ay irritation form using the wash or balm (I have sensitive skin). They aren’t massive bottles either so it’s great to just leave in your kit bad for after training.

So if you’re looking for something that’s accessible price-wise and inconspicuous in your bag, I highly recommend taking a look at this range.

Rhino Skin Armour is available at 600 Tesco stores nationwide and online at as well as

The range cost £4.99 per product with the moisturiser coming in at £6.99.
