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.

NuBo Cell Dynamic Cooling Aftershave Moisturiser SPF20

I’ve weirdly only reviewed one NuBo product before, the NuBo Perfectionist pore concealer, but they’re a brand that’s always been on my radar. Founded by Russian-born Marina Shcherbinina, NuBo is a London-gone-global luxury and efficacy driven skincare brand. When I first wrote about NuBo back in 2013, there were very few male-dedicated skincare brands outside of Clarins or Clinique. I feel their voice and greatly advanced offering has become lost in a sea of poorly formulated, trend-pandering garbage. So I reached out to them and the Cell Dynamic Cooling Aftershave Moisturiser is one of their latest launches.

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.
