REN Perfect Canvas Skin Enhancing Priming Serum

This is the new serum from Ren that gives all the treatment benefits of a lightweight serum, but the silicone-free benefits of a primer. I think this is a great one for guys as even if you get your skincare regime spot-on, by the middle of the day, we can all still get a bit shiny. However, normal ‘primers’ are often loaded with ingredients (smoothers and oil absorbers) that although aren’t the end of the world, skin could probably do without.

Clinique For Men Maximum Hydrator Activated Water-Gel Concentrate Reviewed

Released in the core Clinique collection as the pink-coral coloured Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate, the new Clinique For Men Maximum Hydrator Activated Water-Gel Concentrate (phew) is what I’d describe as a ‘heavy gel’ for normal/combination skin types. The two are basically identical and fragrance free and although this fits very nicely into the Clinique For Men family, I’d definitely check out other Clinique Moisture Surge products for hydration boosting.

Origins A Perfect World Collection Reviewed

It’s been a funny old one with Origins of late. Over the last year or so they’ve seemed to be focusing on gimmicks rather than solid skincare. This included sprays for masking and some kit I had that made a mask which looked like Japanese green tea. The Origins A Perfect World Collection goes back to basics and is Origins doing what Origins does best; great skincare with a natural-bent.
