For the Men into Skincare
Eudermine Activating Essence by Shiseido
Trust me when I say that this essence is a game-changer! I’m sure we have all heard of this additional skincare step that most Korean beauty gurus include in their skincare routine. Used after cleanser and toner but before serums, an essence restores your skin’s hydration and prepares it to absorb what’s next. The Shiseido Eudermine Activating Essence taps into your skin’s energy and unlocks its full potential, making you look recharged while removing impurities. In just a few days, my skin looked more glowing and radiant than ever.BUY NOW: RM 360
Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG by The Ordinary
Have you ever heard of using caffeine in skincare? Well, do you know that burst of energy you get after drinking coffee? The Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG by The Ordinary works in the exact same way. Perfect for those who struggle with dark circles and puffiness, this serum is formulated with caffeine, which works to improve your blood circulation and promote blood flow to reduce puffiness under your eyes. Ideal for your morning skincare routine; you need to try it to believe it.BUY NOW: RM 55
Get Serum Moisturiser by Chucks
Have you ever heard of a serum moisturiser? Serums are highly concentrated formulas that target specific skin needs, while moisturisers create a barrier to lock in moisture and prevent dehydration. However, a serum moisturiser combines both benefits in one product.
Containing 51% Kale extract, this serum moisturiser includes Vitamins C, E, and K, which aid in skin protection, brightening, and more. On top of that, its HyalOcta Complex includes a combination of eight hyaluronic acids to help keep your skin moisturised all day.
We’ve all heard of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), but have you heard of Poly Hydroxy Acids (PHAs)? Unlike AHAs and BHAs, this mild chemical exfoliant is gentler and is best for those with more sensitive skin.BUY NOW: RM 128
For the Men who are into Makeup
Skin Corrector Stick by Bobbi Brown
Many guys strive to achieve a no-makeup makeup look. Have you ever heard of a colour corrector? I’ve always wondered how to get rid of my eye bags, and I finally found the trick. Colour correction is a method that uses an array of colours to cancel out or cover up discolouration and imperfections, resulting in a more even base before applying concealer for those who have makeup in their men’s grooming routine.
- Green cancels out red acne
- Orange levels out dark circles
