Alongside its anti-ageing/fatigue properties, Shiseido’s Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate enhances the skin’s internal defences and fights oxidation and damage caused by harmful UV rays.
Daimon Barber – Face Wash

Offering all that and more, Daimon Barber’s Face Wash strips away the badness while restoring and hydrating skin with anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties to boot.
Wǒ Skincare – Anti Blemish Essence
While we can do our best to avoid it – sweating, searing and sun-caused dry skin will inevitably lead to a breakout or two.

Nine Yards – Purple Shampoo & Conditioner
