I will remind you that Christmas is not over, in fact it’s merely the 3rd day of Christmas so you should be expecting the imminent arrival of a trio of French hens any minute now I would imagine? But whilst you wait, I’ll tell you all about the Mankind sale, with an absolutely fantastic selection of discounts and offers. Here are some of my favourites…


REN Mini Gift

I actually received one of these this year and I have to say I’m in love. The two fragrances are REN’s best seller, Rose Otto, and the refreshingly fruity Neroli & Grapefruit. Both shower gels require you to use the tiniest amount, particularly if you use a shower Lilly/Scrunchy. Both the lotions in their respective fragrances are gel / creams that make for perfect men’s moisturisation, being light enough to absorb quickly, but hydrating enough to leave my skin soft.

Rodial Brazilian Tan Kit

Including the Brazilian Tan Body Scrub, Brazilian Tan Face, Brazilian Tan Clear, this beautiful body bronzing box saves you £74. I fell in love with Rodial tanning this summer through the Brazilian Tan Airbrush, which left me with the one of the best at-home colours I’d ever experienced. Top tip, exfoliate in the morning and then apply your tan in the evening on effectively, dirty skin. This is because your skin is at it’s most natural pH level and so won’t interfere with the development of the colour.

Billy Jealousy Men’s Hot Towel Pre-Shave Treatment

On the surface, the product doesn’t appear to be the most exciting thing in the world, but this is without a doubt, my favourite shaving product of 2012. You apply it to damp skin before shaving and it immediately begins to heat up, opening the pores and softening the hairs. You leave it applied and begin to massage your shaving foam into it which creates a very thick, rich lather. When you come to shave, you’ll have never experienced it being as smooth as this and with the added lubrication, I haven’t had a single ingrown hair or patchy rash. It smells amazing and lasts for an incredibly long time, you’ll love it!
