Men versus women, beauty eds favourite products for guys and girls!



Hello August! In this month’s issue, I thought we would show some love to our male readers and include them in our beauty best buys. Whether you’re looking for ideas on what to buy your partner or like me, you need to find a way of stopping the hubby from sneaking into your beauty draw and using all your favourite moisturisers and hand creams. Or if you are merely interested in knowing what alternatives are out there, you will undoubtedly enjoy the carefully selected items I have handpicked.
