Origins Skincare for Men

I have a so called 'metro-sexual' for a boyfriend. He really does like to look after himself and without fail will try any skincare I leave around the place.

So it makes perfect sense that I would utilise his opinion, right?
I just called in some products from one of my favourite skincare brands Origins and told Ian that if he wants them then he has to review them.

After 8 months together I am still a little confused about what Ian's job entails. I know he works with computers but I simply do not have the ability to retain the finer details and I confess, my eyes glaze over every time it is explained.
However, I do know that he works very hard, leaves the house before the sun come up, drives a lot of miles and works till very late.
He wears a suit to work so has to be well groomed and because of the driving and early mornings he suffers from puffy eyes. I am hoping some of these products will help.

The Products
Jump Start
1. MORNING " When you're just too weary to wake up or when your systems start to stall, lather up and let nature's spark plugs, including Cinnamon, Geranium Oil, Lavender and Ylang Ylang, give your batteries a boost to maximize your momentum. Beleaguered bodies take a rosy glow, feels revved, recharged and raring to go. Kindly cleaners from Coconut plus conditioning Wheat Protein leave skin silky-smooth never stripped dry."

Skin Diver

2. EVENING "What's a body to do when the day's debris works its way under your skin? Lather up and let active Bamboo Charcoal go deep to draw out pore-cloggers and remove the kind of blockage that breedsbaddies like bumps and breakouts."

Easy Slider
3. Pre Shave Oil "Just a few drops of this lightweight Sesame and Orgasmic Jojoba Oil softens follicles to give blades a fast, friction free glide. And the crisp, clean scent leaves skin feeling awake and fresh."

Blade Runner

4. SHAVE CREAM "Just when you thought shaving was a drag, it becomes something worth waking up to. Feel blades sail with no resistance as skin-conditioning Kukui, smoothing Soybean and other plant protectors run interference between skin and blades to give you a close, friction-free shave."
Fire Fighter 

5. TAKE THE BURN OUT OF SHAVING "Soothing Chamomile, Cucumber and Winterbloom douse the flaming-feeling fast to cool, calm and comfort razor-scraped skin while refreshing Eucalyptus and Peppermint give you a burst of get-up-and-go. There's no stinging, no smarting, no ouching."

Ginzing

6. REFRESHING EYE CREAM "Late night? Long Flight? Look tired? Nature's clinically-proven wake-up cream visibly diminishes dark circles. bags and puffiness around the eyes.

We await the final verdict.

  4. Sometimes I get my dear BF using good products; he has a Clinique moisturiser, some Caudalie face wash and some other bits and bobs - but then he goes and ruins it all by using harsh shower gel all over his face in the shower! Pout!

  6. oh cool, good idea for a review as it is soon x'mas and I will need to get my bro some beauty booty. It's weird as he is a very good-looking chap (think Johnny Depp's and Keanu Reeve's love child) and is totally straight, but he is the one I can talk exfoliators and zit busters without shame.

  15. Origins skin care products can be purchased so more and more and too good and popular in the youth. And use potent plants, organic ingredients and 100% natural essential oils. And our long-standing commitment to protect the planet, its resources and all those who populate it is reaffirmed by our earth and animal friendly practices, packaging and policies.Nice information.

  16. Shaving creams should not just have a soothing and relaxing effect on one's skin but shaving creams should also nourish the skin like a water to a plant.

Apply this cream on the acne after a few minutes. You may also use cream for this purpose. Use daily of a moisturize cream that suite you.
