The Alpha Male is the black wolf, the ‘man’s man’ who other guys may look up to for motivation and enthusiasm with sometimes a little hint of jealously. Women are drawn to the alpha male species, not because of their perfect, spot-free complexion but by their characteristics, unleashing their “inner warrior” from inside by showing true confidence, style and humble-manner to the opposite sex.
Our average joe may not be as big on skincare, but he still likes to dive into a good cleanser and moisturiser, every morning and evening using products that are easy to use, straightforward and effective. This is where Geologie comes to play; personalized skincare that won’t break the bank or be overly time-consuming on those rush-hour mornings.
Geologie knows that the modern man may lead a busy empire, so they wanted to strip back complicated skincare by removing the unnecessary steps along with the overwhelming instructions that many skincare products withhold today.
Geologie offers a “no-frills” policy; straight-forward packaging that inside delivers effective skincare. Geologie products are quick and easy to use that won’t limit the time from an active lifestyle a modern man may lead. This science-based brand for men understand and knows that not all male species are alike, we are specific on how we do things in a certain way. For example, being autistic, I like to have a structured routine, and planning ahead is key so I don’t become overwhelmed. For others, doing something spontaneous, a last-minute decision to set-off somewhere unplanned would be a breeze in the park for many, but for me, not so easy.
It was important for Geologie to retain all the skincare benefits that you would normally find in a luxury grooming product [without the luxury price tag]. Ingredients such as Retinol—which is found inside the repairing night cream. Retinol has been making big waves for quite some time in the ever-growing skincare realms, it’s an ingredient that shouldn’t be taken lightly. If you’re looking for a 3-in-1 solution for problematic skin, then Retinol might soon become your new BFF.
What’s the difference between this product compared to other retinol-containing creams? Well, you will have to continue reading!
I think we can all agree that cleansing the skin is the first + foremost important step in a skincare routine. The Everyday Face Wash contains salicylic acid—an ingredient loved by many skincare junkies. Primarily used for its exfoliating benefits, this famous ingredient treats ongoing blemishes that stick out like a sore thumb. You know, those pesky ones that just won’t budge. The coconut-derived agents inside this cleanser create a gentle, yet thorough lather that cleanses the skin without causing disruption to the pH balance or microbiome. Geologie will ship two cleansers to your front door; one for the shower/bath and the other to leave beside the sink along with your upcoming Geologie favourites *sniggers*. After all, having a cleanser at arms reach is always a good feeling right? [I think so!]
After cleansing your skin for at least 20 seconds your gonna need a balancing moisturiser with a dose of SPF protection. So, Geologie created the Vital Morning Face Cream that every single man on this planet would enjoy using [I’m 99% certain]. It’s rich, but never greasy texture glides over the skin before absorbing straight into the skin with no hesitation insight. It leaves a semi-matte, picture-perfect appearance that I’m sure many of you will appreciate—especially the selfie lovers.
Niacinamide balances oil production while correcting hyperpigmentation. There’s also a small dose of SPF10 that provides temporary sun protection. If your daily job consists of working outside then please do apply a higher SPF percentage on top, such as a factor 30 or 50. [I wouldn’t want your skin to suffer]
Interestingly, the Repairing Night Cream is lighter in texture compared to its brother, the Vital Morning Face Cream. The infusion of both, shea butter and sodium hyaluronate replenishes the skin with comforting hydration without feeling overloaded. Retinol at 0.5% is added slowly but gently to start the repair process of damaged, over-exposed skin. It’s important to state that while the percentage of retinol used is low, the user may experience a slight tingling sensation—if he hasn’t used a retinol product before. Geologie knew how important it was for every man to look and feel his best, and I think this weightless, reparative cream might tick every mans box.
This mighty eye cream doesn’t cheat on the ingredients either. With Hexapeptide-8 high on the ingredients list, this synthetic peptide made from a special protein found in botox [yes, from actual Botulium]. This cult ingredient lifts + firms the delicate skin around the eye area, giving every man an instant dose of youthfulness. There’s also Coffee Seed Oil and Vitamin E to offer an energised, more wide-awake appearance. To apply for the perfect application, tap/or massage in a small token piece with your ring finger until the product is fully absorbed. Don’t pull at your skin as this will cause potential skin damage—and we obviously don’t want that. I love how it provides a blurred effect, erasing yesterday’s indication of a hectic day.
