Milk Scrub + Cleanse Wipes. Genius!

One of the drawbacks of our hectic, straight-out-clubbing-from-work existence is that there’s rarely time to refresh properly. And what about when you’re at a festival, your boiler packs in and there’s no hot water or you’re backpacking across Tasmania and need to freshen up? Well, these wipes might be the answer.

Part of the Milk range, created by medal-winning Aussie swimmer Michael Klim, they rather cleverly have a soft side and a rough exfoliating one so your can cleanse and polish skin and they can be used pretty much anywhere on the body as well as the face. They ‘re smell great thanks to rosemary and mint and contain soothing chamomile and aloe vera extract too.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating becoming a total soap-dodger but for those times when you need to groom-on-the-go they’re an absolute godsend.

Unilever shake up men’s face care market with their new Dove Men+Care range

The mass-market men’s face care market has been pretty quiet of late but that’s all about to change with the launch of an entire face care range from Dove Men+Care.

I’ve been giving the products a go for a couple of weeks now and rate them really highly. Unlike many of their competitors they steer clear of strong, pungent fragrances and leave the skin feeling clean, without feeling dry, and hydrated without feeling greasy.

Especially good are the rich, creamy face washes (there are three variants, the exfoliating Deep Clean+ , Sensitive+ and Revitalise+) and the three moisturisers, with the Hydrate+ version also offering sun protection in the shape of an SPF15 moisturiser.

They’re certainly going to give brands like Gillette and L’Oreal one hell of a run for their money. And, given their quality and efficacy, rightfully so too.

The Dove Men+Care range is available now from Boots.
