Shaving giant, Gillette, has launched its new skincare collection, Gillette SKIN, designed to prepare, protect and replenish guys shaved skin. The line-up, which can be used as a regimen or individually has been designed with fast absorbing and non-sticky formulas and created to address sensitive skin issues at its core.
Certified by the British Skin Foundation (BSF), Gillette SKIN is designed to prepare, protect, and replenish the skin. The range includes a face wash, shave cream, shave gel, shave mousse, post shave balm and moisturiser. The products are enriched with shea butter and vitamin E, are made without alcohol and dyes and help men avoid skin irritation when shaving.
“We know guys look for simple and effective skincare products that are easy and comfortable to use” said Callum Wood, Gillette UK Brand Director. “As the brand that sets the standard for guys grooming routines, we know a smooth shave and healthy-looking skin go hand in hand to help them put their best face forward each morning. Gillette SKIN is therefore designed to give all men, including those with sensitive skin, skincare that not only makes a difference, but is easy to integrate into their grooming routine.”
Matthew Patey, Chief Executive of the British Skin Foundation, added “The BSF reviewed the research and formulation work Gillette undertook and we’re proud to certify the new Gillette SKIN range and its proven benefits for sensitive skin.”
TheChicGeek says, "Sensitive skin can be irritating and annoying so anything which reduces this form irritation, particularly associated with shaving, is a welcome relief."

Founded by an Italian living in Monaco, Eisenberg Paris, is exclusively available from Urban Retreat in Harrods. Created and developed by José Eisenberg, the EISENBERG Paris brand has a unique backstory with the Founder’s extensive experience in the world of beauty and high-tech research.

A world-class expert in skincare marrying science and nature, he discovered and patented the revolutionary ‘Trio-molecular’ formula, whereby three molecules work in synergy to regenerate, energise and oxygenate the skin.
Eisenberg based his 15-year research on the combined action and the anti-ageing effects of bio-cosmetic molecules enzyme, cytokine and biostimulin. ‘Enzyme’ digest and eliminate dead cells, ‘Cytokine’ is key to the communication between cells. Peptides are messengers sent by specific cells (leukocytes, immune cells), which act on the receptors of the other cells to induce many vital reactions, one of which is cell renewal and ‘Biostimulin’, from the fresh tissue of young beech shoots, it stimulates cell oxygenation, a vital source of energy, as well as the synthesis of collagen and elastin, which guarantees tone and elasticity.
TheChicGeek says, “This is a gel formulation. I’m not a massive fan of gel-like products. I find I lose control with the razor when shaving and also it doesn’t give that satisfying foam as a cleanser. They also, sometimes, take more effort to wash off.
But, I do think a combined product for shave and cleanser is good because we are shaving less and often the shave product just sits there looking sad as it gets more and more limescaled. Other brands are also releasing these duo products, see TheChicGeek’s review of Proverb - here
This is expensive and, because it doesn’t really stay very long on your skin, you don’t get the full benefits of Eisenberg’s ‘Trio-molecular’ formula. I think if you’re investing in something from Eisenberg I would try something like a moisturiser which stays on the skin.”
