Wether you are prepping yourself for winter, or perhaps looking to get a head start on your christmas shopping, the online destination at the top of your list has to be Mens Make-Up UK. The grooming store has the widest range of mens products in the UK including a vast range of make up, from concealers to bronzers and brow gel, perfect for anything you are looking for gifting or otherwise.
In order to see some of the fantastic products Mens Make-Up UK in a little more detail, here at The Gentleman Select I decided to try a couple which not only worked best with my daily regime, but also tied in well with the change in weather and forth coming winter months. Straight away a brand which stood out and one I have actually always been intrigued about was Recipe for men skincare. This premium company has been creating and developing wonderful products since 2002, however what really influenced my choice here is where it is all made. Sweden. If you can think of the ferociously cold, icy winters the Swedes get, then there is probably no better products to test out on your face as the more harsh British months roll in. After some browsing I selected their Ultra Sensitive Facial Cleanser along with the Facial Moisturiser to use after it.
The Ultra Sensitive Facial Cleanser, like all Recipe for men products, comes in crisp white and bold red packaging. Immediately when you pump out the cleanser, you get that instant aroma of the arctic juniper berries within, something which soothes the skin and prevents redness and irritation especially after shaving. Importantly, it also maintains that important natural balance of moisture, thus helping to prevent your skin from drying out in the chilly winds of the winter months.
Now after properly cleansing my face, I followed this up the Recipe for men: Facial Moisturiser. One of the most notable things about this delightful product when you squeeze it out and apply it to your face, is the delicious cinnamon and ginger aroma, something which has an almost festive feel to it, ideal for this time of year. A healthy mixture of vitamins, minerals and a hint of caffeine is also included to reduce puffiness around the face and tighten the skin to combat signs of ageing. I personally also like how the moisturiser is light on your skin in which for someone who has quite oily skin, I found this worked well for me with no greasy shine appearing on the cheeks or forehead as the day progressed.
The final item and one which I feel you should always carry around in your pocket during the winter months is a good protective lip balm in which the Jack Black, Black Tea that I tried out is an excellent example. This family owned business from Carrollton, Texas has been making ultra fresh mens grooming products for over 17 years and this lip balm is certainly one of the best. With key ingredients of black tea and blackberry it really soothes your skin and more importantly protects your lips from getting cracked and chapped by also providing further UVA and UVB protection with its SPF 25. I popped some on just before I left the house each morning in which it also fits neatly into your pocket for carrying around during the day.
Overall Mens Make-Up UK is a fantastically stocked online shop. You will be bowled over by the selection and vast range of high quality mens grooming and make up products to choose from. The site is also very sharp looking and easy to navigate so you can find what you are looking for quickly and effectively. A section which stood out in particular was the imperfections tab, allowing you to go directly to products relating to your issue, i.e dry and oily skin, to dark circles and wrinkles. With all this in mind I would definitely recommend using Mens Make-Up UK for your own skin care needs as well as ideas for others.
