By now I should hope you are all very well prepared for Christmas with your presents neatly wrapped and waiting patiently under the tree. If on the other hand you are not and are completely panicking, short on ideas and at your wits end, do not fret, The Gentleman Select have put together a couple of fantastic items from MMUK MAN which are sure to make that Christmas stocking extra special on the big morning.
Recipe for men: Anti-Shine Moisturiser
This isn’t the first time I have tried out Recipe for men products and it certainly won’t be the last. If you didn’t catch my last post on tips for keeping your skin protected this winter then it is well worth the read. This cool, Swedish brand are exquisite in delivering products made from natural materials all of which arrive in this simplistic yet punchy, red packaging. The Anti-Shine moisturiser will give you a lovely matte finish after applying and is perfect for people with both oily and combination skin. This is actually backed up by an ultra-fine powder which will reduce any shine to a minimum. Throw in some fine botanical extracts to deeply moisturise your skin and your giftee will be looking super sharp for the winter months.
Jack Black Deep Dive Glycolic Facial Cleanser
A bit of a tongue twister to say but that is the only difficulty you will have with this product. Jack Black is brand with a 17 year history, coming all the way from the lone star state of Texas. Previously I had only tried out their lip balm so the facial cleanser was a new one for me. Wether it is summer or winter you are always going to get those blocked pores which is why this multi-functional cleanser is ideal for getting rid of dead skin cells, unblocking your pores and all banishing all the dirt which gathers on your face. Again much like the above Recipe for men, this is ideally suited for folks with oily and combination skin. Personally I loved how the cleanser can actually used as purifying mask, really incorporating that volcanic ash it contains, if you leave it on for a good while longer.
Billy Jealousy Shaved Ice
Whether your giftee enjoys a regular clean shave, or like me, a simple tidying up around the cheeks and neck, a great after shave balm is a must in which Billy Jealousy delivers just that. A brand which is slightly newer to the scene, 2004 to be exact, it contains a whole host of ingredients for an extremely good shave. Acrylate Cross Polymer is magic at quickly cooling the skin and the Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice acts as a fantastic moisturiser.
Having tried the above products throughly, I personally think they would be a fantastic addition a loved one or friends Christmas stocking. If you have a few different ideas, or more specific ideas for your recipient, then head over to MMUK MAN here and check out their full range of products on offer.
