If you like the ClarinsMen range you’ll be pleased to know that June sees the launch of their brand new 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser. Capturing the current zeitgeist for multi-functional products it’s a daily-use product that cleanses and exfoliates at the same time and a study of 43 men (not many I know but enough to give you a rough idea) showed it delivered fresher looking skin straight away and after four weeks made shaving easier, with less cuts. The exfoliators it uses to achieve these results are a combination of natural lava powder and tiny microspheres of salicylic acid.
So how do I rate it? Well, I tend to think that the key to a daily exfoliating product is fine, non-abrasive particles that gently polish rather than scrub your skin (after all you’re using it daily not twice weekly) and to me the texture of this feels a little bit rough. I’m a huge fan of daily exfoliators though (I love Lab Series’ Multi-Action Face Wash for example) as they simplify your routine, so I’ll be interested to know what Clarins fans make of this one.
ClarinsMen Exfoliating Cleanser will be available in June prices £20 for 125ml
