Philips delivers the ultimate grooming solutions for Movember's Mo'd Man

    MARKHAM, ON, Oct. 28 /CNW/ - This November, in partnership with Movember,
Philips is challenging men from coast-to-coast to put their best moustache
(Mo) forward in order to raise awareness and funding for the Prostate Cancer

grooming solutions, including facial grooming kits, hair clippers, men's
shavers and the always popular Philips Bodygroom. Complete with revolutionary
technology and precision performance, the Philips shaving and grooming
collection promises to keep you in Mo Style during the wild month of Movember.

Bustle Clothing, and Project Runway Canada judge, recognizes the importance of
staying well-groomed from head to toe. "Today, guys are faced with more
grooming responsibilities than ever before," says Hewson. "With the Philips
