Whenever I see a skincare brand that’s been created by a fashion brand, I can’t help but roll my eyes. It’s not even intentional, but I find that some brands just throw out a skincare line because it’s ‘trendy’, and for someone with sensitive skin, that isn’t always the best.
Alas, I’ve been trying out the range from Henri Lloyd and I have to say, I’m pretty impressed. They’ve developed a skincare range that is designed to protect the skin, it’s got an extensive range of SPF products which is never a bad thing.

Everyone should be using a sun cream. Designed to protect your skin against both UVA and UVB rays, the Henri Lloyd Sun Cream for Men is non oily and sinks straight into the skin. One of the main issues I usually have with sun cream, is that is feels greasy on the skin – but not this one! It’s also good to have a product like this on hand because you can add it on top of your current skincare range and you’re instantly protected. Although I have tried other sun creams I perfer, for the price of £20 this is a really affordable product for a guy to add to is routine.
You can get yours exclusively from MaleSkin.co.uk
You can never have too much moisturiser – that’s my motto. The Henri Lloyd Ocean Mineral Moisturiser actually has some really great skincare ingredients, which I’m instantly impressed by. Combine that with the fact that it’s also got SPF 15 and I’m sold. This moisturiser keeps your skin hydrated for up to 12 hours, which is perfect for these colder months. One thing I love about this product is that it’s suitable for both your face and body. It’s always good to have a mutli use product on hand, to hydrate all parts of your skin. Rub it into your face, neck, elbows and any other part of your body.
The Mineral Moisturiser is available from MaleSkin.co.uk
As you’ll have seen in one of my previous posts, I’m all about trying makeup for men. Whilst I wouldn’t classify a tinted moisturiser as ‘makeup’, it’s definitely more of a cosmetic product. The Henri Lloyd Tinted Moisturiser is honestly one of the best I’ve tried. It hydrates your skin, protects it with SPF 15 and smoothes out your complexion. It’s not really noticable on the skin and will make you appear more awake and refreshed. Definitely something we can all do with, right? If you’ve got skin blemishes or dark spots, this tinted moisturiser will help to camouflage them, which is great!
This is my favourite product from the range and available on MaleSkin.co.uk for £20.
Overall, I think I’ve learnt not to judge a book by it’s cover. I’d usually instantly dismiss skincare products created by fashion brands, but this one from Henri Lloyd has opened up my eyes.
Each formula is effective, doesn’t irritate my skin and does what it says. Don’t get me wrong, there are definitely better skincare products out there. But they tend to be more expensive. If you’re looking for an affordable brand to maintain your skin daily, Henri Lloyd is for you.
