Escape to Molton Brown10:00:00
Last week the team at Molton Brown Forestside extended a very special invitation to their store.
I have been a sporadic Molton Brown shopper over the years, usually picking up a bottle or bar of their Black Peppercorn body wash and soap. The subtle scent is understately masculine and I have bought it for gifts and as an occasional treat for myself.
Anita and the team wanted to introduce me to the full men's collection available at Molton Brown and to look beyond what I thought I knew about the brand and its offering.
The newest addition to the men's collection is Tobacco Absolute. A sister product to the aforementioned Black Peppercorn, Tobacco Absolute is a little lighter and fresher, perfect for a spring change.
Along with these 2 feature products, Molton Brown also offers a complete men's grooming regime with a structured, step-by-step series of products. Their men's collection (handily broken down into 4 distinct groups) includes face wash, scrub, shaving solutions, moisturisers and eye serum.
Mix and match these products depending on your skin needs (I obviously skipped #2 as I don't shave) and combine them to create your own facial formula.
Caislin took me through the men's range, focusing on the face scrub and moisturisers. As they had thoughtfully read my blog before my visit, they were able to advise on the best products for me; specifically the Deep-Clean Face Scrub and the Ultra Light Baji Ji Hydrator moisturiser. As I suffer from greasy patches, the scrub will help reduce and remove greasy build-up while the moisturiser has a mattifying effect to reduce shine and keep my skin hydrated.
One of the interesting features in-store is the apothecary-style scent profile box. Each product can be broken down into its component base notes and fragrances and customers can sample each as a separate entity.
In addition to their famous skin, hair and beauty products, Molton Brown also offer an extensive home fragrance collection with scented reed diffusers and candles.
Their new season campaign is all about Escape; seeking luxury and chasing adventure. A travel-inspired collection, it is broken down into 2 ranges:
- The Escapists; Ylang Ylang, an indulgent floral blend for her
- The Explorers; Tobacco Absolute, a warm and relaxed range for him
Building on this inspiration, Molton Brown is offering an amazing 3 night getaway for 2 to the spectacular Gstaad Palace in Switzerland. Just in time for Valentine's Day!
