Men. Simplistic creatures of mankind, only looking for a face wash but bombarded with isles of cleansers offering different textures, smells, ingredients and concerns. Our haven is their mad house. What started as a simple task turns into mission impossible.
As the weather starts to warm up and we crawl out of our caves to start socialising again, we round up some guy approved skincare to make your man look spick and speck so your friends will be throwing #couplegoals on your gram… and to also stop them from stealing our own expensive beauty creams, cause lets face it, they don’t appreciate the La Mer.
What to look for - Multi purpose, everyday cleanser that doesn’t leave the face dry.
Our choice is Bioderma’s Sebium Foaming Gel! Formulated for combination and oily skin, this foaming gel works to remove and control excessive sebum production to manage a healthy level for healthy skin. The skin feels clean but never dry! It can also be used as a shaving gel! It smells great and does the job.
What to look for - A cream that doesn’t leave a sticky or tacky finish.
Unlike women who enjoy pampering the skin with multiple layers of serums and creams, guys much prefer a simple one hit wonder. Uriage Eau Thermal Light Water Cream is ultra-light and refreshing cream, suitable for normal to combination skin that provides up to24 hour hydration without the feeling of stickiness. If he often complains about how oily he looks, Bioderma’s Sebium Mat is a mattifying gel-cream providing weightless hydration, absorbing excess sebum through the day and keeping the skin shine free through the day.
What to look for - A non glossy lip balm that won’t have his friends laughing – “bro, why you wearing lipgloss!”
Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm is enriched with honey and vitamin E to soften and repair dry cracks in the lips. It’s thick texture leaves the lips feeling comfortable and matte so your man will never feel embarrassed applying this.
