Max Made


As a man it’s really hard to find products that are not intimidating or NOT ‘girly’ in their packaging and ingredients. An ongoing question I get asked regularly by girlfriends and clients is: ‘What products/ranges can you suggest I buy my MAN?” Well, here they are!

There are 2 types of fellas when it comes to skincare. The ones that use it, and the ones that don’t. The latter usually don’t use it (skincare) due to the fact it’s an area that honestly confuses, or intimidates them. However, both of types of guys – when given the right tools and products – will happily get in to it, especially when they realise just how simple it can be.

New Zealand made, The Aromatherapy co. has launched the ultimate grooming range, designed for men – called the Therapy Man Range. Like the other ranges within The Aromatherapy co family, Therapy Man is sulphate free and made of 100% pure & natural essential oils.

A tight, and effective range of handsomely packaged, multi-use grooming products – plus a Mini Diffusion Set to give the ‘man-cave’ a fresh & masculine aroma – which includes Shaving cream, Face & Body Balm, Hair & Body Wash, Soap & Nail Brush and Face Cream +SPF.

The essential oils used in the ‘Therapy Man’ collection have a fresh, masculine and sophisticated scent. Ingredients selected for their moisturising, protective and soothing properties are simple yet effective – Sandal Wood & Cypress to cleanse, hydrate, invigorate and rejuvenate – plus Lemon, Chamomile and Rosemary to moisturise, sooth and protect.

Products are light on the skin leaving no issues when it comes to the skin breathing or running into the eyes when sweating – the number one concern voiced by men when it comes to wearing skin care

My favourite products include Therapy Man Hair & Body Wash and Therapy Man Face & Body Balm. Sitting side by side in my shower, I’m clean and moisturised from top to bottom – with 2 products – before I even step-out of the shower! Let’s be honest, it doesn’t get much easier or effective than that!

The Therapy Man Travel Gift Set is my other must-have. The perfect gift-set consisting of my first 2 fav’s – Hair & Body Wash, Face & Body Balm, but also includes a Shaving Cream. Compact enough to throw in to my gym bag, yet large enough to go away with! At a very reasonable price of $25 ($24.95 to be exact) I had no issue in buying one for my gym bag and another for my over-night bag.

Launching in David Jones Stores nationally today this is the perfect gift for both the man that appreciates the finer things in life, and for the man that doesn’t know it yet! Happy shopping ladies. xMM
