When it comes to skincare we all like to look our best, don’t we? Whilst soap and water might be good enough for some people, others spend years perfecting the right skincare routine. For me, I’m somewhere in the middle; I like a simple routine that gives me maximum results for minimum effort.
Over the years I have tried hundreds of products for the skin, some have stood the test of time, others not so much. Now that I’m edging closer to the big 3-0, you’d have thought I would have my skincare routine down to a T by now, but you’re wrong. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my skin over years and still get an outbreak every now and then. What’s important to me is finding products that actually work, regardless of brand or price point.
With that in mind I’m always on the lookout for new products to try with the hope that they might actually work on me. If they speed up the process too then thats also a big thumbs up. I have heard great things about the Anthony Skincare range but have never got around to trying it. So when Mankind asked if I would like to give them a go, I jumped at the chance!
First up is the Glycolic Facial Cleanser 237ml* (similar) for Normal to Oily skin. When I first saw this product I was a bit unsure to tell the truth. My skin is dry so a product which is designed for the opposite doesn’t appeal to me. Not only that, it contains 4.9 % Glycolic Acid, which can’t be good for your skin, can it?
In fact Glycolic Acid is used in many skincare products due to it’s ability to penetrate the skin. The mild acid helps to dissolve dead skin cells and removes surface impurities improving the appearance and texture of your skin.
I was expecting this to be quite drying but in fact it leaves skin feeling clean, smooth and refreshed.
Once you have cleansed the next step is to exfoliate. Before trying out the Glycolic Exfoliating and Resurfacing Wipes* I had never heard of exfoliating wipes before. However, these things have become a permanent fixture in my skincare routine already and are my product of choice from the Anthony Skincare range. They’re just so handy! The wipes have a smooth side to remove any surface dirt and a rough side to exfoliate your skin and take no time at all to use. They leave skin feeling healthy and your pores free from any grime. These wipes definitely tick all the boxes when it comes to an exfoliator that works. Because the wipes contain traces of aloe vera, chamomile, cucumber and white tea your skin is also left feeling soothed and nourished rather than irritated, which some exfoliators can do.
The final step to any skincare routine is to apply a moisturiser to rehydrate skin and return any lost moisture during the previous steps. The All Purpose Moisturiser* does just that and more. Not only does it leave your skin feeling hydrated but the formula contains traces of sugarcane, sugar maple and natural fruit acids to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
With the Anthony Skincare range it is clear to see how much attention and thought has gone into the design of each product – catering for all the men out there. Not only do the products do what they say, but with every product you purchase you are donating to Cancer Research & Awareness.
