Despite my best intentions every year, there’s always at least one person whose Christmas present is left until the last minute and the recipient is almost invariably a man. Be it brother, father or even other half, the men in my life tend to be difficult to buy for and I’m sure I’m not alone.
So it was with interest that I discovered Trilogy’s skincare line for men – also helpfully called “For Men”. Comprising of just 4 products, each step in the skincare ritual (cleanse, shave, soothe and moisturise) is numbered, so there’ll be no doubt over what order to use them in. Number one is a Face Wash and Scrub, €16.95, which is followed by Smooth Shave Cream, €13.95, After Shave Balm, €19.95 and Moisturiser with SPF15, €22.95.
Packed with the same lovely botanical ingredients as the existing Trilogy products, the For Men line’s star ingredient is a multi-mineral complex called M3. Zinc, copper and magnesium are used to energise the skin, stimulate cell regeneration and brighten skin tone, all while fighting free radicals – in a very manly way, of course.
My own other half is fairly minimalist when it comes to skincare, but his L’Occitane and Aveda favourites may just be replaced by Trilogy products some time soon…
