Facial Serum for Men
Throughout history different cultures have used oils to moisturise and nourish their skin. We have selected and blended a range of oils from different parts of the world to create a truly unique facial serum for men. A lot of thought has gone into selecting and blending the oils and nothing has been added that does not bring significant benefit to your skin.
The moisturisers that we use today are typically a blend of oils and water with a chemical emulsifier used to combine them along with some some form of preservative. By leaving out the water we are able to create a serum that has no added chemicals and only uses natural ingredients.
Our facial serum is a blend of Safflower, Evening Primrose, Camellia Seed, Marula, Rosehip, Argan, Avocado, Meadowfoam and Sea Buckthorn. These oils combine to create a deeply nourishing and rejuvenating treatment for your face. The serum is lightly fragranced with our Talleyrand blend of citrus, spice and incense essential oils which complement the fragrance of the facial oils themselves.
This facial serum works well for all men and is particularly beneficial for men with short beards or stubble as the oil will both soften the beard and feed your skin at the same time.
We recommend massaging just a few of drops into you face after washing, the serum can be used morning and night. The serum will require a little more massaging than a standard moisturiser might but your face will love you for it.
