What’s inside the Mankind Advent Calendar: Week 1

What's inside the Mankind Advent Calendar?

Day 1

Omorovicza Revitalising Scalp Mask

  • Massage a generous amount into dry scalp.
  • Leave for 10 and 20 minutes then thoroughly rinse away.
  • Treats and re-balances the scalp, fighting flakiness and promoting hair thickness and health.

This pre-shampoo treatment is a luxurious scalp mask that nourishes and cleanses the skin under the hair, creating optimal conditions for hair growth. By cleansing away dead skin and oil, penetrating deeper into the skin than shampoo alone can, it unblocks follicles, and ensures the hydrating benefits of any shampoo and conditioners are longer lasting.

Day 2

House 99 Broad Defense Moisturiser SPF20

  • An ideal daily moisturiser.
  • Lightweight, comfortable, and effective at defending against pollution and oxidation.
  • Offers Broad Spectrum UV Protection, helping to fight ageing as well as prevent sun damage.

Skin ageing is a complex process, and while its effects can be combated by replenishing moisture in the skin cells, the easiest way to fight ageing is by limiting its main cause: sun damage. The House 99 Broad Defense Moisturiser is designed to do both, and with it, making anti-ageing skincare part of your daily routine could not be any easier.

  • Use either as a bath or shower gel.

Day 5

Philip Kinglsey Re-Moisturising Shampoo

  • Strengthening and cleansing shampoo.
  • Thoroughly hydrates hair which is coarse, dry, or lifeless.
  • Use as part of a regular haircare routine.

Shampoos are the foundation of great hair, and if you’re not using a truly quality shampoo, you’re simply not getting the most out of it your hair. This re-moisturising shampoo thoroughly hydrates the hair from the root to the tip, leaving it soft and manageable, while enhancing the shine of your hair to bring out your natural colour.

Day 6

Philip Kingsley Re-Moisturising Conditioner

  • Hydrating hair conditioner.
  • Use after shampooing to lock in moisture and nutrients.
  • Ensures your hair is in optimal health.

The Philip Kingsley Re-Moisturising Conditioner, when combined with the Re-Moisturising Shampoo, makes a formidable partnership. Thoroughly cleansing and hydrating the scalp and hair, and replenishing nutrients lost both in the cleansing process and throughout the day, pair the two for an unbeatable hair washing routine.
