MENAGE SKINCARE | REVIEW
I’m a skincare junkie. I can’t help but try new things because I’m always curious to know whether it’s better for my skin than what I currently use.
Menage is a new skincare brand that focuses on protecting the skin. Living in a city, my skin is constantly exposed to air pollution and UV rays. All of these speed up the aging process so it’s good to have a skincare routine that helps to protect and prevent the signs of ageing.
We all use exfoliators, right? The Menage Deep Pore Cleansing Scrub is one to give a go!
It left my skin feeling fresh and clean. Usually exfoliators strip my skin too much. I know their purpose is to remove excess oil and dead skin cells, but sometimes it goes too far, I end up with dry skin. This didn’t happen with this scrub, so I’m a happy chap!
I always use exfoliators before I shave because I find that it helps the hairs to stand up, which helps to prevent ingrown hairs and gives me a closer shave. This product is so gentle that I can use it morning and night. That’s rare in a scrub, especially for my ridiculously dry skin.
The product doesn’t have a strong smell, which I love. I always tend to stay away from heavily fragranced products because it normally means the perfume levels are high, which isn’t good for your face!
I know you’re probably wondering, why would someone of my age be using products to help prevent ageing? Well, aging of the skin actually starts at my age! It’s better to prevent it than to try and cure it later on.
The Menage Hydrating Age Defence Gel helps to get moisture deep into the skin in order to restore a younger-looking complexion. It feels super lightweight and absorbs into the skin quickly. You only need about 2 pumps and it covers your whole face!
It left my skin feeling really matte, which I know will be incredible in the summer! This product wouldn’t be good for me on a daily basis; it hydrated my skin but not as much as I’m normally used to. I don’t think I’d actually use this product in replacement of what I use at the minute. If your skin is on the oily side, this product could be good for you.
Please tell me you use an SPF daily? You need an SPF!
I know you’ll normally associate SPF with the sun, however it actually protects your skin from the sun rays that cause ageing. Having an SPF in your daily moisturiser is a good way to get the protection without having too many products on your skin.
I actually really like this product! It’s not greasy and actually leaves my skin feeling hydrated. I used this in the morning on top of the Hydrating Age Defence Gel and I found my skin was sufficiently moisturised but not shiny at all!
There you have it, my thoughts on the new products from Menage. As a range, I definitely rate these products! They all have very subtle scents and a little goes a long way. I would definitely advise layering the moisturisers. It will help to reduce the signs of aging whilst helping to prevent any further damage being done. It’s a win-win situation!
You can get all the products from www.mankind.co.uk. You’ll be amazed with how affordable they all are. Definitely check them out.
Until next time,
