Now every man and woman wants to look their best and especially when the holiday season is just around the corner. Noticing your beloved beauty products are disappearing quicker than you can imagine then maybe your partner has been dipping into your beauty stash! Why not treat them to a stash of their own? Mankind have a huge selection of skincare sets varying from £5.00 to £100+. Tailored for all ages and skin types there’s something for everyone.

10757840-1378810572-403727If your skin is a bit on the sensitive side then Elemis have recently launched the Pro-Collagen Marine Balm; containing precious starflower, elderberry with rose and mimosa waxes that work together to deeply cleanse and nourish, this balm thoroughly removes all traces of dirt, grime and even make-up. What’s also great about this is that it also doubles-up as a face mask!

10661716-1360337666-666911Want that perfect, close shave? Well I’ve been recently testing out Triumph & Disaster shave cream, each tubes contain around 90 shaves and I can honestly say that this is incredible to use! It contains skin comforting ingredients like Lanolin, a natural emollient which allows the blade to easily glide over the skin for the wanted smooth, finish shave, while natural coconut oil offers moisturising benefits.

Then investing in a decent face mask is always a good idea; Mankind offer a fabulous range of face masks suited for all skin types. REN ClearCalm 3 Clarity Restoring Mask is the perfect mask for blemish-prone skin; 5% Sulphur instantly reduces redness whilst calming and combating spots at the same time. French Clay decongests blocked pores and Mayblossom Extract promotes clear, healthy skin!

The festive season is the perfect time to treat anyone with a must have beauty or skin care product. With a huge range of prices to suit any budget, you’re sure to find the ideal gift to put that sparkle in someone’s stocking at Mankind!

Merry Christmas from Mr. Wharff!

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
