Clinique Laboratories- subsidiary of the Estée Lauder Companies- is a manufacturer of allergy tested, dermatologist-driven line of skincare, cosmetics, toiletries and fragrances. The luxury beauty brand is popular for its dermatology-driven  base. In 1967 Vogue published an article titled “Can Great Skin Be Created?” written by Carol Phillips and Dr. Norman Orentreich, discussing the significance of a three-step skincare routine. Evelyn Lauder- daughter-in-law of Estée Lauder- read the article and tired of one-size-fits-all creams, collaborated with both Carol Phillips and Norman Orentreich to develop dermatological- driven skincare and cosmetics. In 1968 Clinique premiered as the world’s first dermatologist-driven brand. Let’s check out some of its men’s grooming best-sellers.

Clinique For Men™ Exfoliating Tonic

Clinique For Men™ Exfoliating Tonic is a daily exfoliator for normal to dry skin types. It de-flakes, unclogs pores and smooths skin’s surface to reveal clearer skin. This action preps skin for a shave and also minimises oil build-up. No matter what the age or skin type, men must integrate exfoliation into their skincare routine. Exfoliation helps remove the top layer of dead skin that allows the rest of the skincare products to penetrate properly and make the facial skin feel young, radiant and healthier. And though exfoliation has a number of benefits, men must be careful not to over-exfoliate as this can aggravate the skin and cause further dryness. For best results,  exfoliate two to three times a week.

Clinique For Men™ Face Scrub

Clinique’s bestselling face scrub for men smooths and de-flakes skin, gently clearing the way for the close shaves. Allergy tested and 100 per cent fragrance free, the face scrub with Salicylic acid and silica helps exfoliate dulling flakes and presents excess oil build-up, prepping skin for shaving. Free of fragrance, Parabens
Phthalates and Oil, the luxury beauty brand’s face scrub contains rounded granules that won’t scratch skin and is the first step in men’s pre-shave routine. The application is simple. Simply apply Clinique scrub over over wet face, avoiding the  eye area, before using cleanser and shaving. Wet skin and rub gently until the face scrub turns white and then rinse off. A pre-shave essential, it clears away dirt and debris, and helps lift beard hairs for a close shave.
