Whether you like it or not, Christmas is already here and yes I just said the C word. It might still be another couple of months away yet, but its never too early to start thinking about what you are going to get for your nearest and dearest.

Building on last years Christmas box, this year Mankind have outdone themselves by teaming up with GQ to bring you the Christmas Collection. The Mankind Christmas Collection: GQ Edition is the perfect gift for the modern man, featuring 12 full-size products along with a 6-month GQ subscription, it really is the ultimate gift this year.

Priced at £100, the collection contains over £400 worth of products from brands such as Clinique, Lab Series, Argentum and Omorovicza, all packaged neatly in a elegant branded box. The full list of products can be seen below:

01. Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser (150ml)

02. Argentum la potion infinie Anti-Age Cream (70ml)

03. Clinique For Men Face Scrub (100ml)

04. men-ü Clay (100ml)

05. The Refinery Eye Gel (15ml)

06. Lab Series Skincare For Men Pro LS All-In-One Face Treatment (100ml)

10. Korres Men Magnesium & Wheat Proteins Anti Hair Loss Shampoo (250ml)

11. Anthony Exfoliating and Cleansing Bar (198g)

12. Rituals The Ritual of Samurai Hand Lotion (70ml)

So far this year I’ve been really impressed with Anthony Skincare and Omorovicza – the Instant Perfection Serum from Omorovicza is a life saver, so I’m looking forward to trying out some of their different products from this box. That’s the good thing about these sort of collections, as well as familiar brands, it’s a great way to try out some other brands too. Rituals and Argentum are completely new brands to me so it will be interesting to see how these go. At £147 to buy on it’s own, you can’t help but have high expectations of the Argentum la potion infinie Anti-Age Cream!

Amongst the products its good to see products from well known and loved brands such as Clinique and Lab Series in there too – staples in my bathroom for years. The box contains a bit of everything; from cleansers and eye gel to shampoo and toothpaste, it has all of your grooming needs covered and at a fraction of the cost.

Whether you are buying it for a loved one or treating yourself, the Mankind Christmas Collection: GQ Edition is sure to not disappoint. Let me know your thoughts!

Elemis For Men Skincare Review

FullSizeRender 2.jpg

If you’ve been following me you may have heard that I was asked to be part of the #MankindCollective a couple of months ago. Lucky for me this means I get to try out various products and share with you what I thought of them.

This time around it’s the turn of the Elemis for Men skincare range. Elemis is one of those brands I typically associate with Spa treatments and although I know of them, I have never actually used any of the products so I was excited to finally put them to the test!

The Elemis for Men range is specially formulated for men’s skin. Designed to combat the effects of shaving, everyday life and pollution, the range aims to instantly boost and hydrate skin. With that in mind, the two products I will be talking about are the Elemis Deep Cleanse Facial Wash* and the Elemis Daily Moisture Boost* Moisturiser.

First up is the Deep Cleanse Facial Wash. What it says:

‘The ultimate daily cleansing solution, leaving skin brilliantly clean, revived and refreshed.’

The first thing I like about this cleanser is the consistency and how a little goes a long way. Similar to the Tom Ford face cleanser, this is a gel cleanser and feels thick and luxurious. As the product doesn’t lather up particularly much you can really massage the product into your skin for a ‘deep cleanse’ feel rather than having a face full of bubbles.

I have been using this twice daily now and can say I’m impressed with how refreshed it makes me feel after use, especially in the mornings. The hint of spearmint leaves your skin feeling cool and awake whilst the milk protein locks in the moisture and leaves your skin feeling nourished. The addition of oak bark along with the spearmint gives the cleanser a real masculine scent which is soothing rather than over powering.

Daily Moisture Boost. What it says:

‘Nourishing lightweight, daily moisturiser’

After the skin is cleansed it’s important to apply a moisturiser to lock in any moisture which may have been lost at the cleansing stage. The lightweight formula of the Elemis Moisture Boost instantly rehydrates your skin and leaves it feeling fresh. As well as being a great everyday moisturiser, the Moisture Boost is also ideal for people who may experience irritation through shaving as the formula is very similar to an aftershave balm. The lengthy list of beneficial ingredients really help to soothe and soften the skin, all while keeping it nourished.

Have you tried any of the Elemis for Men range?
