Skincare Gifting For Men - Christmas 2022

With December just around the corner, thoughts are turning to the age-old quandary of what to get loved ones for Christmas. For some people, it can be an utterly tiresome prospect, the yearly dilemma of what to spend their hard-earned cash on is enough to make them accelerate into grinch mode. Plus, who wants to find the thoughtful gift that so much time and research was spent on shoved in a drawer for the rest of eternity?

Christmas Gifts for Men

Men, particularly, can be tricky customers when it comes to Christmas gifts. Of course, you could go down the well-paved traditional route of socks, alcohol, chocolates, clothing, a tool, or a car kit. Let’s face it, most of us have resorted to those at one time or another. How nice it would be to find them something different, something classier that they’ll actually derive some benefit from!

If you’re looking for divine inspiration, why not consider a men’s skincare gift set? After all, men are far savvier these days about their skincare, most having a routine of sorts that includes cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturising. And of course, when they’re not around, you can try all the lovely products too!

Finding skincare for men or well-being gifts for men, when you’re a woman, isn’t always easy though. You don’t have to bother wasting your time on endless google searches for the perfect men’s Christmas gift this year because we’ve already spotted it. We just have to tell you that we adore the gorgeously presented bag Men Carbon Kit because it provides a simple daily skincare routine to prevent common skincare problems and maintain the male complexion.

Men’s Skincare Routine

Higher levels of testosterone in men causes their skin to be thicker and tougher than their female counterparts. Additionally, sebaceous glands are affected by the male hormones, meaning that more sebum is produced making men’s skin oilier with larger pores.

A shiny t-zone across the nose, forehead and chin is a common concern for men and it’s where the pores can become easily clogged up. Without effective deep cleansing and exfoliation, spots, blemishes, blackheads, and acne can result.

That’s why this superb men’s Christmas gift set includes Clenziderm M.D. Daily Foaming Cleanser, is a lightweight cleanser containing 2% salicylic acid. A gentle yet powerful active ingredient, this gets deep into the pores and breaks down the proteins that cause skin cells to stick together as well as combating nasty bacteria that causes acne and pimples.

Salicylic Acid also prevents the blockage of hair follicles, which occurs when oil gets trapped on the surface as well as irritation and bumps caused by shaving. By dissolving away all the daily debris and unclogging pores, the skin is left deeply cleansed, promoting better absorption of the follow-on products in this must-have Christmas kit.

Retinol Skincare Products For Men

Now that skin has been thoroughly cleansed, it’s time to use a pea-sized blob of Obagi® Retinol 1.0. This wonder ingredient penetrates deeply into the skin cells, promoting cell renewal which in simple terms means newer, fresher healthier skin.

That’s not all that retinol does though because it also promotes collagen production, the essential component for keeping skin youthful in appearance. With extra enrichment from Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and calming Chamomile, this non-irritating, expert formula will target fine lines and wrinkles and smooth the complexion without drying skin out.

Hydrating Skincare For Men

Male skin also needs extra nourishment to prevent it from becoming dry and flaky. Luckily, this Christmas skincare gift set contains the highly effective, non-greasy Obagi Hydrate®. Brimming with active ingredients to comfort and relieve tougher male skin, this exceptional daily hydrator, which can be used morning and evening, harnesses the incredible power of the extremely potent hydrating ingredient, Hydromanil™.

Ground-breaking technology used to create this innovative ingredient means that immediate moisture is provided to the skin through a matrix that forms across it. That’s all well and good but the real secret to this hydrator’s unrivalled success is that the matrix doesn’t only provide an instant hit of moisture. Oh no, this one supplies ongoing moisture, incredibly for up to 8 hours.


So, what’s the science behind it? Well, it’s clever because the intricate matrix prevents water loss, and in fact, holds onto the moisture within the layers of the skin, thereby gradually delivering nourishment from the active compounds within this lightweight fluid over time. Okay so you say, but how is this going to help the lucky recipient? Hydrated skin minimises the signs of ageing like lines and wrinkles, so it looks more youthful and smoother, and it also calms inflammation and irritation, making it the perfect recipe for healthy skin.

On The Go Skincare Products For Men

Finally, there’s also a deluxe mini version of Obagi Daily Hydro-Drops®, great for on-the-spot extra hydration, to use as a daily moisturiser or for those with drier skin, it can also be used as a hydrating serum prior to the daily moisturiser for extra-level hydration.

Powerhouse antioxidants Abyssinian Oil and Hibiscus Oil have been suspended using patented microfluidic Isoplentix™ technology into this formula. This means that each droplet is preserved in its purest form, enabling them to penetrate the skin more deeply than a normal moisturiser would and target the help where it’s needed most.

With a higher-than-normal moisture content, this weightless serum can supply moisture for up to eight hours resulting in supremely healthy, glowing skin. Not forgetting that it affords the skin super-strength protection against environmental aggressors like the cold and wind and against chemical pollutants.


All in all, when it comes to skincare gifts for men, this is your go-to kit and we should add that as well as being a great value Christmas gift for men, it also comes in a handy, classically elegant cream wash bag, which they can reuse time after time as they top up their Obagi® collection because you can be sure that once they try these products, they won’t want to stop using them.
