k.o’s ultimate male grooming kits

We’ve partnered with Dis-Chem to help everyone live better with cash back paid into your Live Better Savings account. We asked K.O to create the ultimate male grooming kit on 2 budgets to show you how you can save or splurge on grooming essentials.

His fans know him as K.O, but his full name is Ntokozo Mdluli and he wears multiple hats – from hip-hop artist, songwriter and rapper to co-founder of successful record label and clothing line, Skhanda World.

K.O acknowledges that we all have different budgets, but he believes it’s important to live within the confines of whatever that budget might be. “When you make good business-oriented decisions, you can sleep better at night,” he says. “If everything you do, is within the parameters of your budget and income, you’ll have less financial stress in the long run, which will ultimately help you live better.”

Partnering with Dis-Chem is another way we’re helping everyone to live better. “I love great scents and although I sometimes go all out and treat myself to a super nice cologne, I try to keep things within my budget,” says K.O. “But it’s great how I can shop at Dis-Chem and get 2% cash back paid straight into a savings account when I use my Capitec card.”

K.O’s ultimate male grooming kits

“Don’t follow trends,” says K.O. “It makes me cringe when people are so invested in following trends.” It doesn’t matter what your budget is, he says. In fact, he believes it’s possible to achieve great things without breaking the bank, while still showing a level of class, especially when you don’t yet have financial independence.

“A spend of R500 can cover all your basics and still leave you feeling groomed, while a budget of R1 000 allows for a few luxurious extras.”

Male grooming kit

Ultimate save kit:

  • Mitchum antiperspirant and deodorant for sensitive skin
  • HairGo hair removal cream for men
  • L’Oreal Men Expert BarberClub wash
  • L’Oreal Men Expert BarberClub moisturiser
  • Skin eFX Men cooling fresh moisturiser
  • Mitchum Invisible antiperspirant and deodorant for men
  • Blade deodorant and body spray in Musk

It’s not about spending huge amounts of money on things; it’s about having just the right selection of items, says K.O. Although his daily schedule is demanding, his grooming advice for men is simple: moisturise your entire body. 

Ultimate splurge kit:

  • Mitchum antiperspirant and deodorant for sensitive skin
  • HairGo hair removal cream for men
  • L’Oreal Men Expert BarberClub wash
  • L’Oreal Men Expert BarberClub moisturiser
  • Skin eFX Men cooling fresh moisturiser
  • Philips OneBlade shaver with 2 stubble combs
  • Mitchum Invisible antiperspirant and deodorant for men
  • Blade deodorant and body spray in Musk
  • Blade sensitive shave gel
  • Blade original body wash

K.O believes that sometimes you need to splurge, and shaving is one of those times. “The Philips OneBlade shaver saves me so much time because I don’t have to worry about lathering my face with shaving cream. Plus, I’ve found that an electric shaver causes less irritation and no razor burn, which makes it perfect for sensitive skin.”
