Favourite Natural Skincare Products for Men

Weleda-Arnica-2016-winner

Father’s Day is fast approaching in the UK (18th June) and if you’re looking for a gift for that special Dad in your life, Weleda has you covered.  So it got me thinking about products for Men and what I would suggest from the Weleda range – also perfect for introducing teenagers and that tricky pre-teen age to a more natural approach to their skincare.

I have to admit that I tend to baulk at “gendered” products and, indeed, there are plenty of Weleda products outside of the “Men’s” range that are very popular with men.  However, for some, there is the reassurance of the product being targeted at a specific sex/gender and, skin-wise, there are some generalisations that can be made as to the differing skincare needs between men and women (and, as such, some products cross-over nicely and may also be of interest).

So, I’m going to concentrate on the “Men’s” range first, before suggesting a few other products that are also popular with men, or may be of interest or help (for particular skin needs).

Weleda Men’s Skincare and Shower/Bath ranges

The Men’s range has a fresh, invigorating scent coming from the inclusion of organic rosemary, may chang and vetiver and is formulated with men’s skin in mind.

Men's Shower Gift Set

The Men’s Shower Gift Set is a great little set, saving £5.40 on the individual products of Active Shower GelMen’s 24h Roll On Deodorant and Eco Bath Scrunchie .  The Active Shower Gel (£7.95 individually) is suitable for vegans and is free from SLS/SLES and other potentially toxic ingredients.

Launched this year, the Men’s 24h Roll On Deodorant (£7.95 individually) echoes the scent of the Men’s range with a herbal fresh scent.  It’s free of aluminium salts and has been tested to last for 24 hours.

I have to admit that when I first came across the concept of scrunchies, I was rather cynical about them! However, I have to say that I am now a convert.  The Eco Bath Scrunchie (£3.50 individually and available in other colours) is the perfect thing to increase the lather when using the shower gel (plus you only need the smallest amount with it and it exfoliates your skin whilst you scrub!).  It’s made from recycled plastic mesh.

Men's Wash Bag Gift from Weleda

Next up is the Men’s Shower Bag gift set.  Containing the Active Shower Gel, Shaving Cream and Moisture Cream in a drawstring bag, it retails for £19.95 and offers a saving of £14.45 on buying the products individually!  The Shaving Cream (£10.50 individually) is a rich, but gentle cream containing almond, goat’s milk and viola tricolor – all good for skin potentially irritated by regular shaving.   The Moisture Cream (£15.96 individually)  is light and quickly absorbed.  Extract of marshmallow root to helps to soothe the skin whilst Witch hazel helps to counter any inflammation post shave.  Organic sesame and jojoba oils help to nourish and protect the skin.  The saving on buying these products together is fantastic – and it’s a handy way of stocking up on your favourite items.

Weleda Aftershave Balm

The one remaining Men’s range product that I haven’t mentioned yet is the Aftershave Balm (£15.95) – packed full of cooling aloe vera and soothing chamomile, it’s the perfect way to follow up a shave.  Also of interest may be the Shaving Brush, made from sustainable FSC grass wood and natural wild boar bristles.

It’s worth noting that where a deodorant spray is preferred, I’d recommend the Sage Deodorant Spray .  Whilst I’m a fan of roll-ons, my partner isn’t and the Sage is his deodorant of choice.  Also, the Iris facial range is a good alternative choice for men, as is the Aknedoran Cleansing range for more problematic skin prone to breakouts.   You can choose any 3 items of facial skincare and save 15% – yet another way to make a good saving!

Other Favourite Products for Men

Weleda-Arnica-2016-winner

Unsurprisingly, Weleda’s Arnica range is very popular.  As I type, my partner is upstairs relaxing in the Arnica Muscle Soak post run and I’ve just been informed that he’s low on the Arnica Sports Shower Gel (that’s timing for you, but it poured with rain yesterday and whilst it’s beautifully sunny today, the wind is up and it’s cooler than it has been, so I guess that makes it good for running?  Either way, he has a day off and it gave him the opportunity to go out in the afternoon for a change).

The Arnica Muscle Soak (£13.50) really is a revelation.  Not just for sporty types who enjoy a good run (like my partner), it’s also perfect for the end of a hard day when everything aches.  I’m yet to write an article on Arnica as a Lead Plant, but in summary it is THE choice for helping to soothe aching muscles and joints, bruises and strains.  Not just for the body, sometimes our bruises  and aching aren’t solely physical. With aromatherapeutic rosemary and lavender essential oils, this is a soak that’s good for the spirit too.  It’s a very aromatic soak and packs a punch scent-wise.  However, this isn’t one for the younger members of your family and isn’t recommended for children under 3 years.

The Arnica Sports Shower Gel (£7.95) is perfect for that post workout shower.  It’s my partner’s first choice of body wash.  Bearing in mind it’s popular here, I tend to buy the soak and shower gel as a bundle in the Arnica Sports Gift Box (£16.95) is a popular buy here as buying the soak and shower gel together gives a saving of  £4.50 on buying the products individually.  Arnica Massage Oil is also very useful for anyone who is very active, or prone to aches and pains.  It’s a great follow-up to the Muscle Soak.

Arnica-Sports-Gift-Set-Weleda

The refreshing Citrus range is another good choice.  Made using biodynamically grown lemons from the Somalia Co-operative in Sicily,  the Citrus Body Wash (£7.95) is the perfect wake-me-up partner to a morning shower.  With soothing aloe vera and nourishing shea butter and sesame oil, Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion (£14.95) is another good choice to care for the body’s skin.    Fragrance free lotion choices would be the Calendula (£9.95) or White Mallow (£11.95) lotions (not just for babies – their mildness means they won’t interfere with any preferred body wash and deodorant scent).

Last, but by no means least is the iconic Skin Food.  I’m in good company as a fan – there are so many positive reviews out there! It celebrated its 90th birthday at London Fashion Week last year (2016) – testament to its popularity and effectiveness!  I’m not its only fan in this house. My partner does a physical job and, as such, can be prone to dryness, cracks and callouses on his hands.  Skin Food is what he uses to soothe and smooth this and it makes a difference.

It’s thick. Very thick. And it takes a little while to sink in.  But it pays dividends on the small amount of patience waiting for it to soak in.

A quote from the actor, Andrew Cooper:

“I was on a shoot in Antigua once and got seriously burnt, and Weleda Skin Food was the only thing that could sort me out.  That stuff is awesome.”

It’s great. Seriously. Try it.

It’s £10.95 for 75ml or £7.50 for 30ml but, at the time of writing, the Skin Food Tin (containing a 75ml tube of Skin Food) is still available for £9.95 and would be my top tip for buying Skin Food as a gift!

Of course, there are other possibilities from across the Weleda ranges, but I hope you’ve found my recommendations helpful.  If you have any questions do get in touch and I’ll do my best to answer them.

NB: prices correct at time of publishing for my shop only and are subject to possible change since the publishing of this article.

Arnica for Amy Appeal

Arnica flowers

The tragic events in Manchester were heart-rending, however, for a fellow Wellbeing Advisor they struck closer to home.

Here is her message:

“Morning everyone. This is a photo of my daughter Mia (on the left) and her best friend Amy, taken just 2 weeks ago. [NB: As the photo mentioned was shared in a private group, I’ve ommitted it from my website for the girls’ privacy].

We were utterly devastated to hear that on Monday night, Amy was injured in the tragic Manchester attack and is one of the 12 children in hospital currently being treated.

Mia and Amy are best swimming buddies – they both train at county and regional level and travel to every session together, spend their weekends at meets together and when they aren’t in the pool, they go out running and walking together. In fact this photo was taken when they were out doing just that.

“ARNICA FOR AMY APPEAL”

Amy is a big arnica fan (and also loves Skin Food and Weather Protection Cream…good gal! )

I know that this is a big ask, but if you would consider buying some goods this week from my web-shop, I will donate the commission raised to Amy’s family to help with their hospital travel expenses, to pay for their parking, food and to put towards her rehabilitation in the months to come. Amy also has a little sister Lizzy – it would be great if we could treat her to something too.

Thanks so much for reading,
Gill xx”

Naturally I would like to support Gill in her fundraising and have set up a page to order through: https://www.weleda-advisor.co.uk/shop/nikkiwall/virtualevent/W012972 . I will be donating all my commission, from any orders through that link, to the fund.  The link will be valid until the end of 30th May 2017.

If you are in Doncaster you can get FREE delivery by choosing “Delivery to Advisor/Hostess” (should be the default selected). However, if you are outside of Doncaster, please choose the option “Delivery Direct to Me” to get your order sent direct (otherwise I will have to charge for postage from me to you).

If you are in Lancashire – Rossendale, Bury, Blackburn, Bolton, Burnley – please order from Gill directly: https://www.weleda-advisor.co.uk/shop/GillSmith

UPDATE

“Amy has had a comfortable night and is doing well. They have had her out of bed for a little while today so that’s great progress. She has a further op scheduled probably tomorrow so we hope to visit Amy later today.”

Plus, the Queen went to visit some of the children today and it will feature on BBC and ITV news later.

If you would like to order Weleda products to be sent directly to the children currently on the ward, you can do so here through Gill and she will take them and distribute: https://www.weleda-advisor.co.uk/…/Gil…/virtualevent/W012975 (do send her a message to let her know that that’s what you’d like to do).

Thank you for your support.!!
