CLINIQUE FOR MEN MAXIMUM HYDRATOR, £30

I’m a huge fan of the Clinique range – always have been since it’s creation and this product follows in the footsteps of an impressive range.

It’s cleverly formulated to trigger the skin’s ability to build and hold moisture, with the added bonus that it absorbs quickly, a little goes a long way and it not only rehydrates, but also firms skin and helps tackle those tell-tale signs of ageing – that’s wrinkle to mere mortals!

It’s another great product that is quick and simple to use, but that has great results – try it for yourself and see. www.clinique.co.uk

CLARINS DOUBLE SERUM, £55

This ‘Double Agent’ is one part water, one part oil, which means the two halves of the 30+ skin super-saviour have to be kept separated – not unlike rival football supporters on cup final day! However, when you press the pump twice (yes, you only need a tiny amount) and unite the warring factions together – all manor of magic starts to happen.

It’s a complete age-control treatment which targets 5 vital functions, which in turn makes you look younger – it hydrates, protects, helps oxygenate, gives skin essential nutrients and helps regeneration. I absolute love it. I take my hat off to the boffins at the Clarins secret skin bunker. I have noticed my skin does look healthier and firmer.

On this occasion the hype surrounding this new product is true.

I urge you to try it. Only problem I can see is that Double Serum isn’t just for us guys… it’s unisex…  so if you notice it disappearing a little faster than you’d imagined – look no further than your Mrs. I have warned you! www.clarins.co.uk

ARAMIS AGE RESCUE FACE LOTION & ARAMIS AGE RESCUE EYE, £40 & £28

This is a combination that I reckon packs a powerful punch. Another duo I recommend using in tandem for the very best results.

The Face Lotion – is lightweight and comes in a gel formulation, which not only instantly hydrates, but also leaves your skin with a decent healthy glow as a bonus!

Anti-age treatment helps fight the look of wrinkles and fatigue. Energised with ginseng.

Ginseng energises the skin for a revitalised look. Renews the appearance of.

It also makes you look younger too.

They Age Rescue Eye – is targeted to work specifically on delicate eye areas and helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles – perfect for the night after! www.labseries.co.uk

DERMALOGICA ULTRA CALMING SERUM CONCENTRATE & DERMALOGICA ULTRA CALMING BARRIER REPAIR, £51.30

I get asked all the time about sensitive skin types, so these two little grooming gems are a must have – especially if your worried about your skin sensitivity.

The serum is a super-concentrated product that helps calm, restore and defend sensitised skin. The scientists at Dermalogica use the exclusive UltraCalmingTM Complex containing Oat and botanical actives that work below the surface to interrupt inflammatory triggers that lead to sensitisation, while helping to minimize discomfort, burning and itching. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours so you’ll not have to worry about aggravating your skin condition.

I recommend you team this up – like all the best double acts with the Barrier Repair. It’s a mini miracle in a tube.

Again this helps fortify sensitised skin and a damaged barrier with this velvety, waterless moisturiser. Use this to help shield against environmental and internal triggers that cause skin stress. Also contains the exclusive UltraCalmingTM Complex to interrupt inflammatory triggers that lead to sensitisation, while helping to minimize discomfort, burning and itching. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours.

Go on you know you want to have these in your bathroom. www.dermalogica.co.uk

L’OCCITAINE ULTRA RICH BODY CREAM, £29

Now how could I forget all the other bits of your body I have missed – well I haven’t thanks to this amazingly luxurious body cream. It oozes class with ever application and is perfect to banish any dry areas you encounter – not just in the Winter months – but throughout the year! I’m never without a handy tub – believe me!

The Ultra Rich cream is a complete treatment for dry to very dry skin and has a high concentration of the wonderful Shea Butter, as well as being enriched with such delights as marshmallow, sweet almond, honey and apricot oil to name but a few. And don’t worry it’s light to touch, easy to apply and absorbed into skin very quickly.
