Bulldog get protective

bulldogI’ve said on countless occasions that I’m a big fan of mass market brand Bulldog Skincare For Men and funnily enough, after mentioning their Original Moisturiser in a piece for Fashionbeans.com someone complained that they didn’t do a moisturiser that contained a built-in sunscreen. And lo and behold, what lands on my desk this week but their soon to be launched Protective Moisturiser which features a broad spectrum SPF15 sunscreen?

Even low-level sun exposure outside of summertime can lead to premature skin ageing so this lightweight, quickly absorbed and affordable daily moisturiser is a great way to protect your skin from sun damage –  from January to December.

Bulldog’s Protective Moisturiser will be available from nivenandjoshua.com from May. RRP £8.99.

dermalogica’s daily defense block SPF15 – my summer skincare hero

Daily Defense Block SPF15Several things have seen me through the summer this year. Not least a sense of humour, given the sweltering heat and torrential downpours. But on the skincare side it’s this non-greasy daily defender from dermalogica that’s been my hero. It’s been with me halfway around the world and now I wouldn’t be without it.

Designed for men (it can be used after shaving and contains ingredients to combat ingrown hairs and breakouts) it has a barely-there fragrance and is quickly absorbed, leaving skin with a matt finish.

The best thing about it though? Unlike many products that also offer a built in UV sunscreen there’s no white residue so you don’t look like someone’s splashed your face with a base coat of emulsion. If you care about the damaging effects of the sun this is a must-have. Absolutely one of the best daily skin defenders I’ve come across.
