Sisley Black Rose Collection

Sisley Black Rose Review - UK Beauty Blog The LDN Diaries

Whenever I go for a facial I always end up ticking every box on the form when asked what types of products I use and so it got me thinking how many people would do the same. Being a beauty blogger I get to try a lot of products and this has developed into me having quite an extensive skincare routine. I value my skincare and so when it comes to beauty I would happily splurge on skincare over a cosmetic. Luxury make-up is lovely and some of it is great, but I would much rather spend the money on a really good skincare product than say a mascara I’m going to be done using in three months. Everyone is of course different, but being in my 30’s it’s important for me and I want to invest in my face, I want to keep my youthful look and if skincare products can help maintain that then I’m all for it.

Clinique For Men 2 in 1 Skin Hydrator & Beard Conditioner Review

Clinique 2 in 1 Skin Hydrator & Beard Conditioner Review - Mens Lifestyle Blog The LDN Diaries

Let’s face it the majority of men are lazy when it comes to skin care, especially when it comes to moisturising and conditioning our skin. I guess the smart people at Clinique noticed this and created the 2 in 1 skin and beard conditioner.

Clinique’s 2 in 1 Skin Hydrator & Beard Conditioner £28 is fragrance and oil free, meaning you don’t have to worry about the smell or how shiny your beard will be. I actually prefer using this product rather than a beard oil as I feel it moisturises and softens my beard and also the skin underneath, whereas some oils can just mask your beard hair and I have actually found my beard felt coarser from using an oil. Key ingredients include hyaluronic acid and panthenol derived from Vitamin B5 to help soften and retain the moisture in your skin. Whereas the salicylic acid helps to exfoliate. Read More »
