Advent Calendar – Day Sixteen


Clarins – Men’s Grooming Essentials Collection

As a skincare enthusiast, I sometimes become irritatingly evangelical about the benefits of using the right products for your skin, or, you know, just actually washing properly. Christmas can find me wanting to ply those around me with some of the lotions and treatments that have benefitted and brightened me. Along with some of my inexpert, unasked for advice, it’s a winning combination.


Toiletry gift sets for men can be uninspiring, verging on ridiculous. Too many shouty macho words, sporty images, and probably lurking underneath, something with an unholy pong. Thankfully, Clarins are not only excellent at skincare, they know exactly how to market towards men without the need for gimmicks and clunky packaging. They have several products tailored specifically for men’s grooming needs, alongside a large range of brilliant unisex skincare. Their gift sets make a great introduction for a curious male, or the one you’d like to spruce up.
