Tried & Tested: Henri Lloyd Skin Protection For Men

4 04 2011

“Stick to what you’re good at” – that’s what we’re always told. But what happens when you’re not content with what you’re good at and you want to try your hand at something new and exciting. Should you give up on your vision? Should you hell. Just go right ahead and attempt to be the best in your field. Which is exactly what nautical fashion pioneers Henri Lloyd have done with the launch of their new grooming range – Henri Lloyd Skin Protection For Men

With a heritage embedded in nautical innovation, Henri Lloyd’s history ensues a prestigious expedition. From creating groundbreaking fabrics for sailing clothes to defining the zeitgeist for Italian youths, Henri Lloyd’s contribution to global design and fashion is impressive. That leaves the Henri Lloyd Skin Protection For Men some large shoes to fill. As a skin care range Henri Lloyd follows the ethos of producing premium performance products, technically engineered with an infusion of marine ingredients combined with a sophisticated British edge. That’s all well and good but all that blurb only stands up if the products are effective, so for the last few weeks I’ve been trying my hand at several products from the Henri Lloyd range – and is my Pour Homme review.

Henri Lloyd Ocean Mineral Shower Gel (200ml) – £12.95

First up from the Henri Lloyd grooming range, the shower gel has all the refreshing properties you’d expect from a products based around the sea and ocean minerals. It provides maximum freshness and acts as a real morning/evening pick me up – without letting you down on the cleanliness front, and it left my skin feeling ‘no need to moisturise’ soft. 4 out of 5

Henri Lloyd Ocean Mineral Hand Protection Cream SPF6 (75ml) – £10.50

Both as a fashion line, and grooming range Henri Lloyd is designed for people who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle, so it was imperative that the range included the essential outdoor product – a strong, protective hand cream. Performing under the most strenuous of circumstances, Henri Lloyd Ocean Mineral Hand Protection Cream features SPF6 and uses minerals, vitamins and algae to repair dry, chapped or cracked hands – which it does brilliantly. 4 out of 5

Henri Lloyd Ocean Mineral Tinted Moisturiser SPF15 (75ml) – £19.00

The feather in the rather accomplished  Henri Lloyd cap, Ocean Mineral Tinted Moisturiser SPF15 is not only my favourite product in the Skin Protection range, but it’s cemented itself as one of my must have products. Providing maximum hydration, optimum protection and a natural looking healthy colour, this grooming must have is almost as multi-tasking as a Swiss army knife! In the run up to summer a moisturiser with SPF protection is essential, but this Henri Lloyd offering provides so much more than just a UV guard making it an absolute must try. 5 out of 5
