Discover Male Grooming in a whole new light with myself. You’re in for a big treat! These male grooming products were gifted in support of this review
A question that has been pondering on my mind for quite some time now “How would my skin response to the benefits of using plants and herbs in a whole new ray of light?” Well, I’m about to introduce you to a unique British Spa Skincare brand that enables you, my readers, to fully enjoy the “whole-plant benefit” into a “new type” of plant complex. Result? An inner, radiant glow from within!
I was given a skin challenge by co-founder, Deborah Scott to purely use only SKN-RG products for a month which as you can imagine, being a skincare blogger, it was a bit of a challenge, to say the least, but I was willing to put my review basket on hold to fully dive in and experience SKN-RG as Deborah Scott intended.
You may not have heard or discovered the brand just yet, but I’m about to change that. SKN-RG are challenging the beauty industry on what it really means to be an organic, vegan-friendly brand for 2020: 100% active, British made and crafted to perfection. What more could you possibly ask for?
SKN-RG stands for skin + energy = SKN-RG pronounced ‘synergy’, the difference-maker about this vegan, cruelty-free brand is that founder Deborah & Robert Scott created an in-house machine called “The Quanta Extraction Machine”. This machine uses light and sound waves to revolutionise the way plants and herbs respond, unlocking the full potential of every extract to provide the very best skin results.
SKN-RG comes with high acclaim boasting Vegan Society Approval, Leaping Bunny Cruelty-Free Certification and Soil Association Certified Organic Collections.
The Male Grooming Collection is one that shouldn’t become berried within the overwhelming selection of grooming products currently available. A curated range that Robert Scott formulated himself, along with support from his wife, Deborah. He wanted to develop a male grooming line that offered the very same benefits as their highly proclaimed Advanced Collection, realising the modern men were missing out on something revolutionary, so Robert & Deborah acted quickly and launched a Male Grooming Collection like no other.
First up! The power-packed 2-in-1 Wash + Shave: an ultra cooling, resurfacing gel wash that uses cleansing Soapberry saponins as it’s natural alternative to chemical detergents. “On-trend” probiotics build-up the skin’s defence from harmful pollutants and bacteria. Papaya acts as a gentle exfoliation that sweeps away dead to provide an irresistibly-soft, gleaming complexion. I cannot forget to mention how well this performs as a skin-beneficial shaving gel, my Heated Gillette Razor glides effortlessly over the skin as I trim and define my stumble. Just think “outside the box” for a moment, not only is this product deep cleansing the skin but its also providing a layer of protection, a cushion for when I’m wanting a quick or thorough shave.
A top tip from myself: leave this on the skin to allow the papaya enzymes to bite away at those unwanted dead skin cells. I don’t know about you but this product sounds like a dream come true in the male grooming field
The next Male Grooming instalment from this collection! We have the Scrub + Mask, and yes, it’s another outstanding 2-in-1 formulation that really lives up to the products description, and I’m about to explain why. Firstly, its texture and scent is something quite like no other, and I mean that. The creamy, yet textured formula spreads gracefully onto wet, dampen skin whilst it’s exhilarating fragrance captures the essence of the SKN-RG Men’s Collection. What’s inside? Dragon’s Blood from the Croton Lechlerion Tree calms and soothes troubled, easily irritated skin. There’s also a combination of Bamboo Stem Powder and Charcoal Powder to offer a gentle yet deep cleansing action without compromising the skins natural pH balance. The “anti-ageing” herb, Rhodiola Rosea Root helps protect the skin against premature skin ageing whilst reducing the prominent appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, that’s why Robert & Deborah infused this ingredient, and carefully to retain its potential benefits.

The SKN-RG Active Moisturiser is an interesting one, to say the least. A texture that had me stunned upon application, and by that meaning, it’s super-fast absorption and ability to hydrate at the perfect level, it’s a product you truly need to experience for yourself. Add this to your online wishlist, for definite!
The ingredients. Firstly, we have Cloudberry, a rare golden fruit that energises the skin with natural Vitamin C to brighten ones’ complexion. Adaptogen Herbs reduces the appearance of skin fatigue and cortisol skin levels to limit the likelihood of irritation and sensitivity. There’s also a duo of probiotics to promote the rebuild of the skin’s microbiome, encouraging future skin defence against bad bacteria and harmful pollutants.
There’s also Eleuthero, an adaptogen herb that helps our bodies to adapt to stress and pressure that we may encounter during our busy lifestyles we lead. Stress can result in dull, lacklustre skin so to keep on top of this and to “nip it in the bud” as the saying goes, we need skincare that adapts to our needs.
The Treatment Oil with 1% Bakuchiol is quite frankly a favourable facial oil of mine. It sinks straight into cleansed skin without feeling overly heavy or obvious in telling that you have just applied a high-performance oil. Mimicking the results as Retinol, this skin-friendly alternative corrects and refines skin texture from a single drop. Echinacea Root and Arnica Flower soothe and invigorate with their aroma-free formulation. Available here
Top tip #2: You can apply the treatment oil morning and night, mix it with your SKN-RG moisturiser or your favourite foundation for a fresh, masculine glow.
Last but most certainly not the least, we have the Alpha Male Grooming Serum. A lightweight, cream-gel that rapidly absorbs into the skin with no hesitation to leave the skin looking corrected and defined. Unbeknown to many of us, we’re surrounded by Blue Light Technology from Electronics we use on a daily basis. How does one product protect my skin against blue light technology? Well, quite simply, SKN-RG carefully extracted the natural defence ability of Plankton Extract to shield and protect the skin against those damaging rays from our “hard-to-put-down” electronic devices. Not only does this root energises dormant skin cells, but Ginseng also provides an instant masculine glow. Black Tea Ferment boosts the skin’s immune system whilst softening, plumping those unwanted wrinkles.
