If you’re the man who takes care of your skin, or even the man who doesn’t. This simple routine will change your life and save your skin from the harsh elements of day-to-day life. Teaming up with L’Occitane, MFM have tried and tested their range of AQUA RÉOTIER products, putting them to the test by using the men in our office to use them for a week and give us their verdict.

Why offer a routine to our readers that we haven’t tested ourselves. It wouldn’t make any sense. Here is our true raw and gritty answers as to why we are LOVING this range.

It was a surprise that the men in our team do not know much about skincare, after all we are a fashion magazine that prides itself on our skincare knowledge. It was my challenge to educate and show them how easy it is to achieve fresh and moisturised skin, in four quick and easy steps. I was focussed on achieving a supple and well nourished finish, this harsh weather does no wonders for the complexion after all. For the guys, the key factor was to have something fast and low maintenance.

Beginning with the AQUA RÉOTIER MOISTURE PREP ESSENCE, a pre-moisturiser with calcium-rich Réotier water to give skin a first layer of moisture and reinforce the hydrating properties of your skin care routine. Like a sponge, skin retains water better when it is already moist. An essential step of the hydrating ritual, this light gel-texture pre-moisturiser prepares the skin with a first layer of moisture and reinforce the hydrating properties of the Aqua Réotier Ultra Thirst –Quenching Gel and Aqua Réotier Thirst –Quenching Cream.

Enriched with hydrating hyaluronic acid and calcium rich Réotier water known for its properties to help skin maintain its hydration barrier and retain moisture, this moisturising essence turns into a water-like texture to instantly refresh skin. Bursting with moisture, skin will instantly feel more plump and revitalised while skin tone is fresh and radiant.

Next, follow through with the AQUA RÉOTIER WATER GEL CLEANSER, a gentle face cleanser that lifts away impurities and leaves skin clean, soft and comfortable. Like splashing cold water on your face, this gentle face cleanser will invigorate your skin while lifting away impurities. The cool gel transforms into a light, supple lather, that leaves skin clean, soft and comfortable. It is simple and easy to use, morning and night, and a perfect addition to a simple routine.

Following up with the AQUA RÉOTIER FRESH MOISTURISING MIST, use this face mist any time during the day to instantly hydrate and energise your skin.

Spritz some water onto your skin, anytime, anywhere! Use this beauty water whenever you need a little boost of freshness or to set your makeup. Its formula combines the powers of Réotier spring water with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and energise the skin.

Finish off with the AQUA RÉOTIER ULTRA THIRST-QUENCHING GEL, a refreshing and cooling face gel that instantly recharge skin with water leaving it replenished, radiant and plumped.

Enriched with hydrating hyaluronic acid and calcium rich Réotier water known for its properties to help skin maintain its hydration barrier and retain moisture, this ultra-fresh face moisturiser contains thousands of micro-bubbles that instantly recharge skin with water. Its formula glides onto skin to act like a magnet to hold-in moisture and drench the skin all day long. Skin’s natural hydration is improved; it is immediately recharged with water. Replenished and radiant, skin is visibly plumped.

After following this regime for a week, they all agreed that even if they used one of the products, they still felt a huge difference in hydration. Although it was difficult for them to stick to a strict four piece routine, they were able to keep to at least one product, and they are keen to continue on with this new routine.
