Justin Timberlake Joins the Kiehl's Fan Club
6 x Grammy Award winning singer, 4 x Emmy Award winning actor, fashion designer and restraint entrepreneur Justin Timberlake is a fan of the Kiehl's brand and is quoted as saying "Kiehl's always makes good stuff, and I like their Facial Fuel because it's simple and clean. Plus it's got a little tingle to it, so you feel like it's doing something."
Kiehl's Facial Fuel
Energising Moisture Treatment for Men
With a male customer following among the strongest and most loyal in the industry, Kiehl's Since 1851 is introducing its first treatment product formulated specifically for men - Facial Fuel - to its extensive offerings of efficacious skin care. Created for the "man on the go," this facial recovery accelerator wakens and uplifts dull, fatigued skin imparting a refueled, re-energised and revitalised appearance. Its unique formula, enhanced with Vitamins C and E as well as Chestnut and Soy Extracts, helps improve skin's look and texture, especially for a sleep-deprived or over-worked complexion. This vitamin-enriched and non-oily moisturiser helps skin resist the visible effects of everyday stress for a healthy, invigorated look.
Kiehl's reliance on advanced technology and naturally-derived ingredients to deliver a high degree of efficacy makes the Facial Fuel formula a unique and essential product for male customers who are increasingly demanding more sophisticated benefits from their skincare products. With Caffeine, this energising moisture treatment was designed to address the special concerns of fatigued, neglected skin - the result of lack of sleep, stress, or a strenuous workout at the gym. Facial Fuel is the ideal solution for the active urban man.
Since its beginnings as a small neighborhood apothecary, Kiehl's has formulated products which target the specific needs of its patrons, often in direct response to customers' requests. In recent years, and growing more prevalent, its male customers have come to expect products which are formulated specifically for them. While Kiehl's formulations are generally considered to be unisex, the company has offered products for many years which are targeted specifically to men, most notably its men's shaving care. With perennial favourites such as White Eagle Shave Cream and Blue Astringent Herbal Toner - as well as new favourites Multi-Purpose Facial Formula and Ultimate Strength Hand Salve - the company continues to address the needs of its devoted male customers.
Key Ingredients: Vitamins C and E, Chestnut Extract, Soy Extract and Caffeine.
Key Formula Attributes: Non-oily; energises and moisturises fatigued and dull skin; helps improve skin's look and texture; vitamin-enriched; helps skin resist visible signs of everyday stress.
Phoenix by Keith Urban
Phoenix by Keith Urban Keith Urban's fragrance Phoenix by Keith Urban is designed by men, for men. The fragrance is light, subtle, but unmistakably masculine, sexy and great for all ages, daytime and evening wear. The Classic Gift Set containing a 30ml EDT (perfect travel size) and 30g Deodorant Stick is great for weekends away, the gym, holidays or just for the glovebox or desk drawer.
Keith Urban has had a huge 12 months with three consecutive number ones, a world tour (Get Closer World Tour) and the launch of his new fragrance. Now he's back in Sydney to film The Voice for the Nine Network as one of the show's coaches, alongside Seal, Delta Goodrem and Joel Madden.
Urban was instrumental in the creation of Phoenix, which is a modern twist on a classic aftershave - rich, leathery, sexy and masculine, and based it on the range of scents he wears.
"We looked at all of the different colognes I actually wear and started to see certain notes that were present in all of them. From there we set about defining what became Phoenix. What I was looking for was a good balance of sensual, spiritual and masculinity, and I think that's what we've achieved".
With top notes of blackberries, cognac and plum the scent then develops into middle notes of rich dark chocolate and crisp fir balsam and finally to base notes of warm cashmere wood.
Phoenix by Keith Urban is available in David Jones, KMART and Priceline.
Phoenix Classic Set, 30ml Cologne Spray & Deo $19.95.
Phoenix by Keith Urban is distributed in Australia by Brandpoint Australia. For stockist and retail enquiries contact Brandpoint 07 5630 1560.

VitaMan VitaMan is a recognised global pioneer of the men's skincare and spa market and continues to be leaders and innovators of natural, functional and highly effective daily and lifestyle solutions exclusively designed for the modern man.
Created and launched in 1999, by Naturopath/Herbalist Glenn Kiddell and International Skincare Specialist and Lecturer Clare Matthews, VitaMan is immensely proud of its Australian heritage and stands apart from all their competitors due to their utilisation of unique, potent and scientifically proven Native Australian Plant, Herb and Fruit extracts.
VitaMan was the first Australian cosmetic company to research and utilise these natural ingredients which have a history of use of over 30,000 years by Indigenous Australians helping to produce a range free of harmful chemicals, artificial fragrances and colours.
Brand new to its extensive range of skin, hair and body offerings are three new products: WrinkleSmoother Serum, i-zone Eye & Lip Reviver Gel and Earth & Ocean Deodorant Body Sprays. Wrinkle Smoother Serum - RRP $79.90
Considering that men spend 40% more time outdoors in the sun than women, it's no wonder dehydration and sun exposure are the main causes of their wrinkles. Wrinkle Smoother Serum is an intensely hydrating serum that helps smooth fine lines, reduce the signs of aging and sun damage, giving skin a more youthful appearance. Visible improvements can be felt and seen immediately and it leaves skin softer and smoother after just one use. Contains a mix of scientifically proven plant extracts with amazing benefits such as: Aloe Vera Gel that provides natural anti-inflammatory, calming and soothing effects; Bilberry Extract to nourish while helping to even out skin tone, plus a small percentage of mixed alpha-hydroxy acids (from milk, apples and citrus fruit) that help to gently exfoliate dry dead and damaged skin cells.
i-zone Eye & Lip Reviver Gel - RRP $87.90
This superb gel initially feels deeply moisturising to replenish and smooth the skin and finishes with a velvet silky smooth sensation to refresh and revitalise the eye area, minimising dark circles and puffiness. This latest anti-aging star gives the modern man the perfect countering solution against the daily attack on the skin by the sun and free radical damage caused by our environment, plus those big nights out! It's also highly effective for dry, cracked lips and smoothing out those fine lines around the mouth. Contains CoQ10 to protect against free radicals and environmental damage; Green tea and orange bitter to reduce puffiness; powerful antioxidants Vitamin A, Grape seed and Rosehip oil for anti-ageing and Vitamin E and bilberry extract to help reduce dark circles.
Earth & Ocean Deodorant Body Sprays - RRP $48
Perspiring is natural; it's how we omit toxins and how our skin breathes. However, up until now, the majority of companies have only used harsh, toxic chemicals in their commercial deodorants to try and mask associated body odour. VitaMan, in keeping with their 'Natural is Best' brand philosophy, instead offers a superior acting and longer lasting natural based body deodorant with breakthrough active ingredient Chitosan which is proven to provide all day protection. Chitosan enhances the natural essential oil aromas, whilst working to mask perspiration odour longerthan conventional deodorants. It is naturally sourced from recycling the shell waste of marine crustaceans such as crabs and prawns discarded by processing factories, and is distilled with Lactic and Citric Acid to become a natural functional anti-bacterial ingredient. VitaMan offers men two aroma options; OCEAN - an uplifting, fresh stimulating aroma and EARTH - a deeper, warmer more sensual aroma.
VitaMan is currently used and sold in 32 countries worldwide, distributing to the world's mostprestigious Hotels, Spas and Department stores. To view the complete VitaMan line, please visit www.vitaman.com.au

Arbonne's RE9 Advanced for Men
While the modern man might be taking himself a little more seriously in terms of grooming and get-up, that doesn't mean he wants to adopt the complex beauty regime of the ladies. Arbonne's newly reformulated RE9 Advanced for Men range has simplified the process, combining sun-protection, anti-ageing and skin-care all in one very clever series.
The RE9 Advanced for Men is comprised of four new products, including an Exfoliating Wash, Shave Gel, Facial Moisturiser SPF 15 and Post-Shave Balm. Designed for everyday life, the clinically proven ingredients work to minimise the effects of ageing and environmental stresses such as fine lines and imperfect texture, while skin-soothing botanicals prep the skin for the ultimate, comfortable shave.
This new collection is in line with Arbonne's philosophy of using only the most revolutionary effects of both science and nature. Key ingredients such as algae extract, seaweed, sea buckthorn oil and stabilised Vitamin C, are utilised to feed the skin with nutrients that may have been forgotten in the daily grind.
Made with guys' logic in mind, the range works to reap its benefits right from step one in the Exfoliating Wash, which helps to prevent ingrown hairs and preps the skin for a clean, close shave. The Shave Gel is formulated with anti-friction properties to increase glide and deliver a smooth-as-silk shave. The Facial Moisturiser SPF 15 protects skin and helps to reduce visible signs of fatigue, stress and ageing. Completing the process is the Post-Shave Balm to provide fast-acting comfort and to soothe razor burn.
And the best news? The whole routine can be done in the time it takes to have a shower and a shave. Looking after your skin from step one? Simple.

GAIA Made For Men
The first organic men's skincare range to be made widely available and distributed through Australian supermarkets is a true reflection of the changing social tide. Australian men are now not only caring about their image and appearance, but their overall health and wellbeing as well.
Using carefully selected organic veggie oils, herbal extracts and pure essential oils, known for their skin nurturing benefits, these ingredients help tackle typically male issues such as razor burn, in-grown hairs and assists in maintaining clear, healthy skin.
Using certified organic Lime, certified organic Patchouli and certified organic Spearmint pure essential oils for a fresh and masculine scent, GAIA made for men stimulates your senses, helping to awaken, refresh and re-energise your skin to meet the day (or night!) ahead.
The GAIA made for men range consists of a face & body scrub, wash, shave gel and face crème:
Made for Men Face and Body Scrub 150ml
"Using a scrub is like using a plane on a piece of wood to slough off the top layer to reveal a smooth finish underneath," says Simon, "Without all the surface debris and having minimised any lumps and bumps - your shave will be a lot smoother," says Simon. "It is also great for in-grown hairs."
"It is made with crushed walnut shells, a natural bio-degradable exfoliant, which is nice and gritty, but gentle enough to care for your skin without sand-blasting it off" says Simon. "And because it is FREE from alcohol, soap and sulphates, it won't dry or irritate. This scrub invigorates the skin while at the same time hydrating and softening. It will leave you feeling fresh and revived." Simon says.
Made for Men Face and Body Wash 150ml
"This is a great shower gel you can use from head to toe. Because it is soap and sulphate free it will clean your skin and remove any excess oil without stripping your natural protective oils or leave a greasy layer behind. And as it contains calming botanical extracts, they are friendlier for skin affected by dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema" says Simon. "A great pick me up - it stimulates the skins surface and maintains elasticity and suppleness, making you feel soft, smooth and more vibrant."
Made for Men Shave Gel 150ml
"It is made from a blend of moisturising oils to soften and lubricate the skin, minimising friction. The organic aloe vera and organic chamomile help to soothe and calm any razor burn or irritation." says Simon. "Not only is this gel soap and sulphate free, it doesn't contain any butane, propane or harsh chemicals that can also irritate the skin. If you like a little extra lather - this gel can be mixed with more water for more of a foam." says Simon.
Made for Men Face Creme 150ml
"This is a light moisturiser and aftershave balm in one to de-sensitize any razor burn and keep the skin hydrated. It contains cooling organic spearmint to leave your skin feeling fresh without oiliness. It is also good for dry or flaking skin," says Simon.
The entire range of GAIA made for men is FREE from ingredients that are known to dry or irritate particularly sensitive skin. There are NO sulphates, propylene glycol, parabens, mineral oil or petrochemicals leaving you with just pure, natural and organic product. Sometimes it's not just what you put in, but what you leave out that counts!
GAIA made for men is now available to purchase on-line, via mail order or from selected pharmacies and health food stores Australia wide and from selected Coles supermarkets in the shaving section!
