5+1 essential beauty products for a man

Mens skin care is something very important in order to keep your skin young and fresh, especially in the hot weather.

Here are 5 man beauty products you need for a flawless skincare routine this summer:

The cleaning gel : CLARINS

As gentle as cleansing milk, and as effective as soap, this creamy mousse floats away make-up, pollutants and pore-clogging debris. Softens, smoothes and soothes. Clean-rinse formula neutralises the drying effects of hard water.

The moisturizer: CLINIQUE FOR MEN

Lightweight formula controls oil for a matte, shine-free look. Oil-free hydration improves skin strength. Smooth on the face and neck.

**BEAUTY EDITOR’S PICK:

YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT ALL-IN-ONE GLOW

A skin-loving, all-in-one medium coverage tinted moisturizer with SPF 23 that evens complexion, eliminates dullness and smooths fine lines. This good-for-you product is made in France with the finest pigments and ingredients that respect and care for the skin. The formula is oil-free, non comedogenic, talc-free and dermatologist tested.

The scrub or exfoliant: SHISEIDO

An invigorating face scrub that eliminates roughness, blackheads, and dull surface cells with triple deep-cleansing action. Gives dull fatigued skin a look of fresh energy.

 Concealer: BIOTHERME HOMME

Combined with signs of fatigue and stress, eye cream is inevitable in the skincare routine.

The perfume: TOM FORD COSTA AZZURRA ACQUA

Cool. Salty. Refreshing. Costa Azzurra Acqua merges cool air and refreshing waters as one. The salty waves of wind and sea collide with the warmth of the sun on the body, tempering its pulsating, red-blooded heat.

REY bonus? Sun cream: KORRES

A new generation, silicone-free suncare collection that visibly reduces wrinkles and brown spots, as reported by dermatologists.

UNISEX fragrances are the way forward

Usually the first thing we all splurged on us in the morning, after shower or in a store, is our favorite fragrance. Of course there are a ton of fragrances out there that are popular for both men and women. However, we’ve compiled a list of unique, unisex and most importantly one of a kind smells for you to try next time you’re on a hunt for a fragrance.


Maison Margiela –Replica Fragrances

The Replica fragrances come in Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum. There is also the filter fragrances a sort of layering scent and the untitled fragrance.  The basis for all the Replica fragrances is that they replicate a memory essentially, like their scent Flower Market or Beach Walk. I find that most of these smells do evoke a familiar scent however only a few of them truly stand out. Personally my favorite is the Eau de Toilette –by the Fireplace, described as burning wood and chestnut.

This scent has a beautiful depth of woody smell with a slightly sweet top note. Definitely a winter/autumn scent. Another favorite from the replica range is Jazz Club described as heady cocktails and cigars, this is a more citrusy smell than -by the Fireplace but it lacks that sweet note. 


Escentric molecules-Molecule fragrances

Originally this line had launched with Molecule 01 the most popular and my favorite of the bunch. The fragrances are based around a single ingredient, which reacts with your natural pheromones giving out a unique “tailored” made scent. Even if I tried I cannot accurately describe this scent, however is a beautiful unisex scent and a decent price point.


Jo Malone- Cologne & Intense

Jo Malone has over 20 scents of beautiful fragrances with botanical, citrus and other accents. I cannot really recommend just one since I think they are peculiar scents and each is special in its own way. Wood sage and sea salt is an easy going woody scent whereas Oud & Bergamont is deep, citrusy and more pronounced. When it comes to Jo Malone, definitely visit a counter and pick a scent that is personal to you.
