men's mental health
One in eight men have a common mental health problem.
We’re supporting Movember. Movember is a fantastic charity that runs different events through out the year. Their work in mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer has never been more important. So how can you help?

spread the word
Men have the freedom to care about them self’s just as much as women do. So why don’t they? There’s a stigma that makes men feel like looking after their skin by using specialised products is ‘girly’. WRONG! Skincare is for everyone. That’s why we’re doing what we’re doing. To break the stigma around men’s skincare across the UK. You never know… we might just start a trend!
