Voya has created a capsule collection of targeted men’s products, suitably titled: Voya Man. It’s due to launch in February 2018.
Voya is a brand I know and love. It’s renowned for its seaweed baths at Strandhill in Sligo and you can recreate this at home with its Lazy Days product. Read my review of that HERE
I have experienced the seaweed baths in Ireland and even been hand harvesting seaweed on the wild Atlantic Coast of Ireland. This company is the real deal offering organic, seaweed-based products and spa treatments formulated with great botanical ingredients and aromatherapy oils to achieve impressive skincare and wellbeing results.
Voya Man is a three step regime designed by men for men. These facial products are performance based, acting against wrinkles, enlarged pores, inflammation and dehydrated skin. Targeting men’s concerns for healthy, hydrated, and irritant-free skin these formulations are proven to have visible effects. The anti-aging and hydrating properties of wild Irish Seaweed combined with active Sea Heather soothes the skin, and acts as a protecting layer against the weather/ environmental elements, and razor burn. I’ve given them a test run (way before they hit the shelves). The products work and work really well. They do exactly what they promise, cleansing and moisturising. The contain a potent (and heady) blend of aromatics including a hefty dose of clove. I would have preferred this to have been toned down a bit.
