When it was reported last month that the popular Bawang shampoos had high levels of a carcinogen, the Hong Kong-listed maker said many such products contained the substance.

Choose a floral or fruity scent to refresh yourself, something minty to beat the heat, and lavender or jasmine to help you sleep. Good foams provide a deeper clean, while moisturising ingredients help to keep your skin soft, meaning you need less body lotion after your shower.

We asked a few of the men in our office what it would take for them to pick up a copy of GLOW. Predictably enough, features with 'scantily clad women' was the top response, but it was followed by 'an old-fashioned barber's shave'.19 Oct 2009 - 12:00am
