A great skincare regime separates the men from the boys. This may not come as a huge surprise, but men’s skin is very different to women’s. Daily shaving alters its metabolism and suppleness. Naturally richer in collagen, it usually takes longer to age, but shaving can cause dehydration and sensitivity, removing up to two layers of skin a day, as well as causing in-grown hairs. All this can lead to premature ageing, which is why ELEMIS has created a specially formulated grooming programme.

When it comes to shaving, the smoother the surface of the skin, the smoother the shave. The vitamin-rich Smooth Result Shave & Beard Oil preps the skin pre-shave, softening facial hair. The gels - Ice Cool Foaming Shave Gel and Skin Soothe Shave Gel – contain natural ingredients like Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera that calm and nourish the skin for the closest shave possible.

  1. Cleanse – Clear away trapped grime to create a healthy canvas.
  2. Shave and Groom – choose a foam, oil, gel or cream for the closest possible shave or add a beard oil to keep facial hair conditioned.
  3. Moisturise & Anti-Age – Calm irritation and restore vital nutrients lost during shaving, which helps keep skin supple and protects against anti-ageing
  4. EyesHydrate and protect the delicate skin of the eye area with a lightweight cream specially formulated not to overload, as well as reducing any puffiness and signs of fatigue.

Freshly shaved skin needs protecting and hydrating. The Daily Moisture Boost keeps skin supple and decongested, whilst the S.O.S Survival Cream, with its marine extracts and lavender, soothes any sensitivity. Eyes that stare at screens all day need special attention too, and the Time Defence Eye Reviver protects this delicate area without overloading it.
