PRODUCT FOCUS: Shiseido Men Anti-Shine Refresher – Review

Shiseido Men Anti Shine Refresher

Skin fact: men’s skin produces more sebum than women’s. This often means our skin ages slower, but it also leads to shine. My T-zone (forehead, nose and chin area) gets pretty shiny so I’ve tried lots of anti-shine products over the years, but the one I always go back to is Shiseido Men Anti-Shine Refresher. This wonder product looks and feels like a moisturising gel so it’s great for a … [Read more...]

The key is not to overload the face with moisturiser and opt for a lotion over a richer cream, but sometimes, especially after shaving, our skin is crying out for a rich moisturising treatment. That's why I love Shiseido Men Total Revitalizer; an effective anti-ageing cream that has the lightweight feel of a lotion and the … [Read more...]

No complaints there! The only problem is that excess sebum can cause skin to look oily and shiny, which is definitely not a good look. In particular, our t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) is usually the most … [Read more...]

Nobody likes to admit that they have cellulite, yet that fact is, most of us do. Afflicting the majority of women, if you are a sufferer, then you are not alone. The question is, is there anything you can actually do to help smooth away the lumps and bumps?
