Lab Series Skincare for Men – High Performance Duo Set

Now we’re talking: this is the duo set which will sort out your Christmas skin (you know, the sort that actually starts to resemble turkey flesh) and leave you refreshed and conditioned. The Multi-Action Face Wash is probably the best on the market, and the All-in-One Face Treatment is a soother, moisturiser, age repairer, and mattifier (anti-shiny) which makes it a liquid genius.

And get this: the contents are worth £94, yet the price is only £25. Poor maths or outstanding value? Either way, this baby will go down a storm on Christmas morning.

‘Make-up for men’ is being talked about as the beauty trend of 2020 – and why not? Especially if it works as brilliantly as Marc Jacobs’ unisex concealer.
