The ultimate grooming & style guide for your man this Valentine’s Day

Our skin is exposed to so many elements and is prone to breakouts, especially wearing a face mask and if you’re surrounded by the office air con it can also dry out and flake. The Blemish + Age cleanser helps decongest and refine the pores, helping to minimise blemishes and giving a brighter look, ideal for looking fresh on date night. Its clever combination of ingredients also removes excess oil and accelerates the skin to exfoliate, helping to smoothen any imperfections.
