Clinique make skincare even simpler

clinique1Clinique have always prided themselves on the simplicity of their men’s skincare range – whether that be the minimalist packaging or the easy-to-follow way the products dovetail together to form a basic routine. So it’s a bit of a surprise that they’ve felt the need to simplify things for their customer even further. But simplify they have, by ditching the tongue-twisting Skin Supplies For Men tag, renaming classic products like their M Lotion (it’s now simply ‘Moisturizing Lotion’) while updating some of the formulations and altering the packaging of products like the Aloe Shave Gel (revamped and renamed from M Shave Aloe Gel).

There are a few niggles (the Anti-Age Moisturiser could have included a sunscreen and I would have liked to have seen a Night Cream in the line up) but it still remains one of the best premium ranges to stock up on. In truth, this revamp is more of a tinkering around the edges rather than a radical overhaul of the range or an exercise in innovation (though we’re advised to watch this space on that front) but as with a gentleman’s wardrobe, a little refresh now and them never hurt anyone.  And if you’re into your skincare I can think of few better starting points than Clinique.

The new range, featuring 22 products, is available now. For more info go to cliniqueformen.co.uk

Clinique have travel fatigue licked with their new Daily Revitalizers duo

Along with stress and a lack of sleep travel has to be one of the most draining things for skin. Thankfully, Clinique have come up with this handy ‘Daily Revitalizers’ duo to keep you looking half decent.

Available exclusively at airports and duty free locations, with an RRP of £31.37, it features a Skin Supplies For Men M Lotion (a classic moisturiser) and the latest addition to the Skin Supplies range – the Anti-Fatigue Cooling Eye Gel, which features a cooling rollerball delivery system. To buy the pair normally would set you back over £40 so if you spot the set on your travels (literally) then snap one up!
