ZA finally launches its men’s grooming line with four ranges that are targeted at different skin concerns. We’ve got our hands on the soon-to-be-launched Ultimate Moist products.
The ZA Men’s Ultimate Moist Deep Cleansing Gel and Hydrating Moisturiser promise to turn dry skin into fresh, moist skin using Hyaluronic acid, an ingredient known for its excellent moisturizing effect.
This cleansing wash and companion moisturiser was specially created for those of us who work in an office environment.
I was a little sceptical about the last promise, mostly because I am consistently in an air-conditioned environment and I know exactly how damaging it is for my skin. The ZA Ultimate Moist Cleansing Gel and Hydrating Moisturiser set would have to stand up to long stretches of dry office air and keep my skin smooth and hydrated throughout the day.
When I first used the cleansing gel, I was pleasantly surprised by its “energy capsules”. These mini capsules are filled with Vitamin E and C, formulated to energise skin, giving a refreshing feel when applied to the skin. I think the taurine also freshened up my skin. The best part was that my skin didn’t feel dry after the wash.
I used the companion moisturiser twice a day, once before I go into my office in the morning and once more before I sleep. The moisturiser promises 24-hour hydration, increased radiance and healthier skin. It also absorbs very quickly. I don’t like spending too much time applying things onto my face, so it was nice that the moisturiser was quickly absorbed into my skin.
Besides the fact that there is no hassle, I’m also happy to report that the minty coolness of the facial cleanser also carries over to the moisturiser. While my previous moisturiser has a similar effect, it somehow caused my eyes to water when I applied it below my lash line. ZA’s Hydrating Moisturiser, however, did not give me this problem.
This is a definite yes.
After using the set for a week, my skin felt smoother and less dry. That, coupled with the fact that my skin felt refreshed after a quick wash, made all the difference for me.
The ZA Men’s Ultimate Moist Deep Facial Cleansing Gel (100g) will retail at SGD9.90. The companion Hydrating Moisturiser (50g) will retail at SGD12.90. Both items will be available at Watsons from 29 Jan 2015
