ONE FOR THE BOYS

Posted in Skin on July 2, 2015 by


Alright ladies, show of hands if you are sick of the men in your life obliviously using your most prized crème de la crème? We hear you!

For the record, men’s skin is significantly different to women’s – their skin produces more oil, as well as being thicker and having a tougher skin texture. This is why men sometimes need a little help when it comes to choosing skincare for themselves. And, the other obvious added bonus? You can stop them from raiding your treasured beauty cupboard and using your favourite products when you’re not looking.

Enter Hunter Lab – the 100% Australian-owned, Melbourne-based company who have crafted a natural skincare range specifically for guys which will help your boyfriend/brother/father protect, hydrate and care for their skin.

Hunter Lab Hand & Body Wash is an addictive multi-purpose wash made up of a blend of tangerine and grapefruit essential oils, it’s also topped off with a subtle hint of caramel and vanilla. Delicious. His skin will feel instantly fresh and clean. Plus, the modern matte black packaging will look slick in any bathroom – his or hers.

The real cream of the crop is Hunter Lab Cleansing Facial Scrub. Packed full of skin-nourishing goodies like sugarcane and macrobiotic sea minerals, this exfoliant will remove dirt, restore moisture and stimulate cell renewal. Worth every darn penny. 

The perfect partner to this is Hunter Lab Daily Face Fuel Moisturiser (aka the perfect answer to your man’s dry, dull or damaged skin). The addition of macadamia and passionfruit seed oil will keep his skin’s moisture levels in check (without leaving any sticky or oily residue).

But, the real work horse of this skincare range is Hunter Lab Anti-Aging Elixir – a potent, lightweight gel serum. This bad boy will kick start cell renewal and we guarantee he’ll be scoring compliment from dudes and dames.

The fifth and final product of the range – and don’t be scared off by this one, fellas – is the Hunter Lab Matte Lip Balm (the key word here being matte). Whether he works in an air-conditioned office or outdoors rain, hail or shine, chances are his lips are dry, chapped or cracked (particularly during the cooler months). That’s where this salve comes in handy. There’s nothing florally or fruity about it – just castor oil, beeswax and vitamin E – meaning he won’t just wear it, he’ll actually go back for more. The best part is it’s completely matte so no one, except for him, will none the wiser.

Instead of your man stealing skincare from you, you might even find yourself doing the same. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
