As much as I love all things pink and pretty, sometimes it pays to head over to the other side, and borrow stuff straight from the boys. Oversized cashmere sweaters, a light cologne and oversized shirt all spring to mind, but you might want to consider raiding their skincare too. Bulk Homme have garnered a pretty much cult following in Japan, and with their launch in the UK, I couldn’t resist giving some of their products a go.
Packaged in seriously chic squeezable bottles, the skincare line is designed as an ‘essentials’ routine which focuses on the principals of cleanse, tone and moisturise. I’m kind of obsessed with the slick, industrial vibes of the packaging, and I love how toned-tone the whole ethos is. The first product I tried was The Face Wash, and it’s seriously impressive stuff. Obviously it isn’t specifically formulated to remove makeup, but it’s perfect for removing all the grime after a busy day. With a rich, velvety foam, this left skin feeling soft and clean, but not stripped.
After cleansing, I soak a cotton pad with The Toner and then wipe over my face, neck and chest. The formula deeply hydrates skin, and since it’s designed for post-shave skin, it’s super soothing too – perfect for combatting summer redness and irritation! The last product in the trio is The Lotion – a seriously lightweight hydrator which preserves skin elasticity. It’s great if you’re looking to mattify skin too!
The trio of products are such a fabulous choice for summer skincare, and they’re definitely one to nick from the boys.
