Givenchy Man offers some new and superb anti-aging products. Givenchy’s Intensive Anti-Fatigue Eye Lift ($41) is a highly concentrated, multi-action skincare gel for the eye area. It features a roll-on with three metal balls to help wipe out wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness in a single step. The wrinkle-smoothing effect is achieved by a “maximale” concentration of collagen to visibly smooth and fill in the crosshatched wrinkles around the eyes. Anti-dark circle and anti-puffiness effect comes from a powerful decongesting duo – peptide and caffeine – which helps eliminate excess water and oils that accumulate under the eyes.
The Pro Energizing Massive Moisturizer ($38) is a nearly invisible, non-oily gel that has the exceptional ability to flood the skin with moisture and energy without leaving a single trace of shine. The intense hydration booster – Hyaluronic acid, a powerful moisturizer – leaves the skin ultra-supple and soothed. An energy booster containing a cocktail of vitamins A, C and E replenishes the skin’s energy reserves to fight the effects of fatigue. It should be applied to the entire face every morning after shaving.
The Givenchy Man Pro Energizing Shaving Cream ($22) features a half-cream and half-foam texture. It not only enhances the glide of the razor, but it also revitalizes the skin to produce a healthy look even at the break of dawn. A close, soothing shave is achieved by the cream’s especially dense texture, which facilitates the razor glide, while chamomile soothes and nourishes the skin. The product helps to promote youthful, healthy-looking skin. An energizing dose of vitamins A, E and F stimulate and revitalize the skin, acting like a vigorous wake-up call.
The Powerful Renovating Skin Peel ($26) is an ultra-fresh blue gel. It combines the performance of a chemical peel and mechanical exfoliation to make your skin feel like new in just one minute. Glycolic acid, the best dermatological skin peel around, removes dead cells and helps renew the skin. Additionally, four different sizes of abrasive micrograins cleanse the pores and refine the skin’s texture. Users should concentrate on areas subject to imperfections: the sides of the nose, the nostrils and the chin. The peel should be used once or twice a week.
Absolute Fatigue Fighter ($40), the latest product in the Givenchy Man line, was created in the same fighting spirit as its predecessors: this super-concentrated, ultra-high-tech product contains dual-action active ingredients that directly target men’s skincare issues. For modern men, with neither the time nor desire to slow down, this protective, energizing serum is a positive guardian angel.
In just five seconds, it smoothes away signs of fatigue, restoring the skin and arming it to deal effectively with its variety of foes: pollution, lack of sleep, tobacco smoke and stress.
Finally, the Givenchy Man Intensive Age-Fighting Force ($63) will give both your face and your morale a life. This complete, high-powered cream-gel is impressively effective against both wrinkles and skin slackening along the jaw. Radical anti-wrinkle action is achieved via a maximale concentration of collagen, an excellent skin-filling material, which helps smooth out fine lines and visibly reduce wrinkles. Intensive anti-slackening action is accomplished with fragments of elastin – the basic component of the skin’s elastic fibers – which helps firm the skin and tone it intensively. Recommended for daily use.
