Next time your favourite moisturiser seems a little bit depleted or your concealer disappears, don’t blame the kids or think that you’re going mad. It’s probably your other half!
Despite the recession, prestige skincare products are proving very popular with the male of the species, and figures are showing that they are no longer too shy to buy their own, with men’s skincare products seeing a rise in sales last year.
The most popular items on a man’s skincare shopping list are predictable; after shave is number one on the list followed by moisturiser, cleanser, hygiene products and then exfoliating products.
Londoners seem more concerned for their appearance than men elsewhere in the UK, with sales of advanced and expensive skincare higher in the capital than anywhere else in the country. Those City boys obviously like to look and smell good!
It seems that the men are just the same as women when it comes to their favourite brands, too with trusted experts like Clarins and Clinique proving to be really popular, like men only brands such as Lab Series.
A perfect introduction for men who want to take care of their skin and feel great too is a men’s spa day. How about the Men’s MOT at Bannatyne’s Spa in Millbank? Choose a 55 minute treatment and spend all day in the spa…all the treatments on this menu are massage-based but you can still wave the spa facial menu under his nose!
Or you could splash out and go for a Men’s Top to Toe Spa Day ay Champneys Springs – complete with a grooming treatment, a massage and full use of the spa facilities. If that doesn’t convert a man to the joys of grooming and spa days, nothing will!
