The Flint+Flint skincare range sets out with the ambitious, and somewhat risky, aim of being a spa-quality skincare product that will be just as attractive to both men and women. This is by no means a simple task, subtle differences in fragrance or texture can make a product more appealing to men than women and vice-versa. Even making the packaging appropriate for a unisex market is a big ask for any skincare range, so Flint+Flint had set themselves quite a challenge before they’d even got started.
We’ve been gifted a selection of their products over the past two weeks to see if they would be appropriate for a man’s skincare regime and how they actually perform as individual products. Here is a summary of what we found: View Post
As the seasons change many of you will be thinking about changing your wardrobes to adapt to the colder temperatures and harsh elements. However, a factor that is often ignored is changing your skincare regime to better protect and repair your skin on a daily basis. Some elements involve preparing your skin before the seasonal shift in climate, whilst others involve daily advice to help keep your skin from drying out or becoming damaged. So here are 3 simple tips to help keep your skin undamaged and clear throughout the Autumn/Winter months. View Post
Around a month ago we put together a full daytime skincare regime for men that covered the most important factors to maintaining healthy skin. However, whilst the day can be a workout for your skin, the night hours are when it is given the chance to recover and repair any damage or stress it has received. We’ve put together three different routines that are specifically designed to aid this repair in a variety of situations and, in some cases, help alleviate some of the issues faced when your skin isn’t given the chance to rest and recuperate.
The Early Night – Luxury Recovery
It’s an early week night and you’ve arrived home after a long day at work or a tough workout and collapsed on the couch, exhausted you decide you’ll have a chilled night and get to bed early. This presents you with the perfect opportunity to help calm your mind and help nourish your skin, ensuring that your skin recovers more effectively, blemishes are reduced and skin feels clearer the following day.
Our Chosen Product: Aesop Chamomile Anti-Blemish Masque – £33
It is testimony to this product’s quality that we often find it out of stock on the website and in stores, it is a natural and extremely effective way of providing luxurious facial skincare overnight. We initially followed the instructions, applying it and leaving it on for 15 minutes before washing it off, the results were not bad but also not great. However, we were later told by fellow bloggers that if you left it overnight the mask was much more effective at cleansing the skin. It’s especially effective at clearing up oily skin without drying it out too much or causing irritation.
Since we’ve done a variety of skincare tips, hacks and product reviews over the past few months we decided to walk you through a daily skincare routine that we feel covers most of the factors we’ve discussed. We’ll also throw in some notes on practices we don’t do daily but are part of our weekly process and are important for a healthy skincare regime. So we’ll start from the beginning just after the alarm goes off… View Post
