Today marks the day that many of the UK workforces return to work after the festive joy that was the Christmas and New Year holiday. Booo! We don’t know about you, but having a few days off to celebrate all things festive has certainly taken it out of us and the struggle was real when it came to getting up this morning. Coffee on tap plz. To get some Monday Motivation back in to our lives, we’ve been having a cheeky look at the Mankind Sale Section and adding some stuff to our baskets ready to treat ourselves for all our hard work today. Hey, you’ve worked hard too today, you deserve to treat yo’ self too! Need some help? Here are our Mankind Editors Top Picks from the Mankind January Sale 2016!
When it comes to haircare, we really like experimenting with different products to make sure our follicles are in top condition for any occasion. Mixing up y our haircare routine is a lot simpler than trying new skincare, because if it doesn’t work in the way you want it to you can just wash it out and start over again! If you’re looking for a product to charge up your hair in to some luxuriously thick styles, try the Fudge Big Hair Mega Milk, which will add thickness to your style alongside smoothing out fly away hairs. Another product we’ve added to our basket is the Label Men Scalp Purifying Shampoo. After the madness which was New Years Eve, which not only involved a lot of hair styling for the evening, but a lot of glitter getting in our hair we need to revive our scalps and soothe any irritation styling has caused. This shampoo from Label M contains a formulation of scalp loving ingredients to keep flakes at bay and strengthen your hair. Finally, our last haircare sale pick is from Tigi, in the form of the Bed Head for Men Clean Up Peppermint Conditioner. This softens and hydrates your hair whilst providing a refreshing scent of minty goodness.
When it comes to skincare, we do like to stick to some tried and tested favourites such as the awesome Glycolic Facial Cleanser from Anthony. The additional of Glycolic Acid in this creamy facial cleanser means that it gently exfoliates away any dead skin without being harsh to the surface of your complexion. Just what we need after one too many heavy nights neglecting our skincare regime over the Christmas period. If you are feeling a little tired with the back to work thing, why not liven up your eyes with the Eye Rescue Formula from Menscience? Visibly reducing dark circles, this ultralight formula is perfect for brightening those dark circles and fighting against signs of aging. Perfect for the January lull! The last thing we’re stocking up on from the Skincare Sale is the Rehab London Men’s Cold Turkey Shaving Gel which is a dual action formula, providing a close and comfortable shave. Over did it with the glitter beard? Now might be the time to whip off that facial hair and start a-fresh in 2016!
Now we’ve got the hair and skincare nailed, lets get that body sorted! If you’ve over indulged this Christmas, did you know a bit of a tan can give you the illusion of a contoured body? We’re not talking getting on the sunbeds here, just get your hands on some of the St. Tropez Gradual Tan to work some magic and pretend those abs are defined (still!). Speaking of abs, have you discovered Ab Crew yet? With french green clay working its magic to cleanse your skin, this bright yellow bottle of goodness is the perfect in-shower addition to invigorate your senses. Finally, to end your sale bargain bonanza, why don’t you treat yourself to some Musgo Body Cream in Spiced Citrus. Not only will this leave your body looking and feeling super smooth, but the spiced citrus scent will keep the festive spirit alive for even longer!
