No one is immune to fine lines, not to mention the urge to smooth them back out. Swedish beauty formulators Nuori may have nailed the minimalist (ungendered) look, but don’t let that fool you into thinking this eye cream doesn’t pack a punch. Highly nourishing thanks to the plant power of squalene, shea butter, and apricot oil, this cream instantly plumps the delicate skin around the eyes without leaving any residue behind.
Free from skin-irritating nasties like SLS, this invigorating body wash will give you a bit of extra space in the shower. The utilitarian squeezy bottle may be fuss-free, but it still manages to strike the middle ground between masculine and feminine. And the smell? We dare anyone to resist the refreshing combination of lemongrass and rosemary.
Body oil may sound a little high maintenance for most guys, but pop it into a nice relaxing bath and moisturizing suddenly becomes effortless! The earthy essential oil blend made up of cypress, cedar, vetiver, and other grounding notes, which will fill the bathroom with a scent that's sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Even better, it will linger as a subtle fragrance on the skin post-soak (and just apply more if you want a stronger scent.)
Safe and gentle enough to use all over, this one is made for getting up close and personal. Pure coconut oil is paired with certified organic sunflower and evening primrose oils to leave skin feeling silky smooth. Perfect excuse for a massage? The lack of fragrance also means it’s perfectly suited to the most delicate parts of the body and won’t kill the mood with any overpowering scents.
Most of us don’t go through styling products too quickly. The solution? Share of course. Ultra-versatile, this styling cream is the not-so-secret weapon for the job. Use it on all hair types, dried or damp, in multiple ways. Go for hold (minus the crunch) on shorter hair to create a defined style, or apply it to smooth down frizz and flyaway on longer styles. All of this while the botanical ingredients work their magic to keep locks in tip top condition!
