Fact: Shiny skin equals oily skin, and to be honest I forgot how shiny my skin becomes in spring and summer. Working in an air-conditioned environment doesn’t help the cause either, in fact, it adds fuel to the fire so speak. While many women struggle with a similar problem, men biologically have a larger size and quantity oil producing glands which increase surface shine on the skin. While cleansing each morning is a major step in removing surface oil, in most instances, this isn’t enough. To help keep men’s skin in check this season, LAB SERIES Skincare for men created a new moisturiser for men designed to eliminate shine and combat the signs of ageing.
Product Name: LAB SERIES Skincare for Men MAX LS Matte Renewal Lotion
What it does: To help skin maintain its ideal balance, this moisturiser hydrates skin while eliminating shine. And while it’s never too early to start taking anti-ageing precautions, this lightweight lotion features ingredients to help maintain your youthful good looks. Formulated with LAB SERIES patented iLLUMATTE ingredient complex, this lotion works to:
- Moisturise: a blend of hydrating and moisturising ingredients restore skin’s moisture barrier while providing long term hydration
- Mattify: Super absorbent powders mattify skin and control shine
- Renew: Gentle exfoliating ingredients visibly smooth skins texture
- Enhance: Instant optics help diffuse imperfections to create a natural finish leaving skin looking healthy
- Repair Anti-ageing ingredients help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles
Results: Let me begin by saying on the hydration part, this moisturiser packs a punch. It’s super light, and my skin feels soft and plump. Regarding my skins texture, I have noticed a slight improvement in the time I’ve been using this product – it’s been about one week. On the shine front I have noticed a reduction; however, it doesn’t happen straight away. The mattifying powders do start working straight away however over time they also begin to regulate oil production which is why you will notice a difference after a few days of use. Overall my skin looks healthy, and imperfections are less noticeable. Overall a great product which does what it says and with continued use the benefits really start to show. I will definitely continue to use this product in spring and summer.
