The Grooming Guy – Wellman skin care review

The Grooming Guy – Wellman skin care review

British health and supplements company, Vitabiotics, have entered the thriving male skincare market with their Wellman Skin Technology range for men. Designed to complement a healthy lifestyle, Wellman offers a perfect option for men who pride themselves on achieving healthy, clean, hydrated skin.

The basics of any grooming program is to cleanse, scrub and moisturise but since my introduction to Wellman, I’ve added a fourth; under eye serum. Over the last month I’ve been fortunate enough to sample this range, specifically formulated for men, and to my surprise I’ve had a positive response from my skin.

2D-WEL Skin Tech range

Ultra Energising Facial Wash

The facial wash is almost completely clear and it has an understated scent. The wash is light and comes out quickly so be aware of wastage. Surprisingly, you only need a small amount for a nice lather to help remove the impurities and pollutants in your skin. Even my girlfriend loves this one!

Exfoliate and Invigorate Facial Scrub

A good face scrub is a key player in helping you achieve smooth skin and a vibrant complexion. I found this exfoliate gentle and it helped reduce the dry, flaky areas around my nose, which I’m occasionally prone to. Apply once or twice a week in a light circular motion for a period of time.

Ultra Hydrating Anti-ageing Moisturiser

The true test of any moisturiser is if it causes blemishes or pimples which are normally evident after a week. Luckily, my skin had a positive reaction with its unique blend of antioxidants. Additionally, it also contains SPF-15 to offer protection from the sun which is the biggest factor in helping to reduce the ageing process.

Anti-fatigue Under Eye Serum

I’ve only recently added this to my skin routine as I’d grown accustomed to the dark circles under eyes and to be honest I hadn’t really thought about their demise. After a few weeks I’d notice that the dark circles and puffiness had faded slightly. Which was enough for me to continue using.

PS – to complement this excellent skin care regime, why not try Wellman’s supplement, which works to improve your skin and health from the inside.

Milk Skincare by Michael Klim review – The Grooming Guy

Milk Skincare Michael Klim

Milk is a skincare range founded by former Australian Olympian Michael Klim (you know, the guy with the shaved head who won a heap of medals) and his wife back in 2008. What’s obvious about this product is the packaging, how cool is it? In the fashion world I believe it’s described it as minimalistic chic.

Milk face wash and scrub is basically a creamy based scrub which helps exfoliate and cleanse the skin. In the past I’ve tried moisturising face washes that felt like sandpaper and left my face feeling dry. Not the case with this cleanser as it contains fine exfoliating beads which I didn’t find rough on my face. Face washes are suppose draws out the impurities in your pores and cleanse your skin, which it did. It contains over 50 different nutrients, which they say help protect and moisturise your skin. All I was hoping for was that it left my skin feeling smooth, clean and soft and it achieved that.

Sometimes I get pimples from using creamy based scrubs but I had no blemishes after using it for a week. You only need to use a small amount (about the size of a pea) to cover the whole face.

Milk Ultra-light moisturiser

Milk’s Ultra-light moisturiser is creamy without feeling gluggy, it’s non-greasy and it’s easy to apply. I like how it doesn’t have a fragrance, I’m not a fan of moisturisers which have a sweet or chemical smell.  Surprisingly a small amount is enough to cover your whole face and neck.

Milk’s Ultra-Light Moisturizer contains also contains over 50 different ingredients but the two that stand out for me are jojoba oil which protects against skin dehydration and Aloe Vera which acts as an anti-inflammatory, protecting your skin against breakouts and dry, red itchy patches but most importantly, it moisturises your skin and for under $15.

You can use it day and night and it also says that it contains anti-ageing properties so make sure you pay attention around the eyes and neck. I’ll have to use it for a while to see if that’s case.

It’s Australian owned and uses 100% recycled packaging.

Overall, I’m pretty impressed with the product and its packaging.
