Beauty For The Boys

Stuck on what to by the men in your life this year? I have a nightmare every birthday and Christmas as to what to buy my fiancée and this year; I think I have found the perfect present! Many men are still to embrace the grooming stuff, such as cleansing with more than just soap and actually moisturizing at all. However, Liz Earle has made it easy for the least interested man to take care of his skin without out having to have a bathroom cabinet full of lotions and potions. Liz Earle’s Cleanse& Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser for Men is a godsend! And here’ why…

The powerful yet gentle cleanser quickly and easily cleans away dirt and excess oils that can block pores, helping to reduce impurities that lead to spot-causing bacteria. It is suitable for all skin types, so even the most sensitive gentlemen can use this formula.

The plant-based cleanser is easy and simple, two steps is all it takes.

Step 1: Massage 1 or 2 pumps gently onto dry skin over face and neck. Free from mineral oil, its rich and creamy texture swiftly removes all traces of daily grime.

Step 2: Rinse the pure muslin cloth in hand-hot water and wring out before gently polishing off the cream to gently remove dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.

Splash face with cool clean water and follow with After-Shaving Moisturiser. To be honest if their skin isn’t particularly dry, then they don’t really need to bother with the moisturizer at all, if it’s not up their street. The cleanser itself is moisturizing enough!

The ingredient make this cleanser smell amazing, not at all perfumed to smell like one of the girlie cleansers. It has a masculine, spicy scent and is quite earthy. The naturally active formula includes the following ingredients.

Cocoa Butter - This rich, creamy butter which has moisturising effects on the skin is made from the roasted seeds of the cocoa tree, the same seeds that give us chocolate and cocoa.

Hops Extract - This herbal extract comes from the pinecone-like fruit of the hop plant and has astringent and toning properties.

Rosemary Essential Oil/Extract - This renowned and once sacred herb has been used for centuries in beauty preparations. Rosemary essential oil has a fresh pungent aroma and is very invigorating and stimulating. The extract has beneficial antioxidant properties.

Chamomile Essential Oil/Extract - This herb takes its name from the Greek kamai (ground) and melon (apple) because of the sweet apple-like fragrance it releases when trodden on. The essential oil is considered a gentle oil by aromatherapists and medical herbalists have used chamomile for soothing the skin for centuries.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil - Native to Australia, eucalyptus shoots are a favourite food of the koala. The cooling essential oil produced from the leaves and twigs has decongestant properties and is used by aromatherapists to ease muscular aches and pains.

D-panthenol - Otherwise known as pro-vitamin B5, this B vitamin is necessary for the normal functioning of the skin and has a moisturising effect. It also helps stimulate cellular renewal.

Glycerin - The glycerin we use is always vegetable derived. It is a humectant (attracts water), drawing atmospheric water onto the skin to aid hydration.

Beeswax - The beeswax used in Naturally Active Skincare comes from the honeycombs in which bees store their pollen. It has skin protecting properties and helps to relieve chapped skin.

I have asked my fiancée to give his opinion on the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and he noted the following, ‘my skin felt very hydrated after the first use, I do suffer from quite dry skin and it really has helped enormously. In addition I have a beard and this cleanser is great to use then trimming and shaping it and stops any irritation from the razor’
