Valentine's Day Mask Bae. With Skin Republic you can ensure you look your best this Valentine’s Day.

The month of love and date night of the year is just around the corner! We want you to look your best for Valentine’s day and have put together a, "his and hers" masking skincare routine taking into account the skin differences in men and women.

Ever wondered why there are different skincare products for men and women? Well, it’s because the structure of male and female skin differs.

This is how: Male skin is about 25% ticker, has higher collagen density, larger pores, and a different skin texture compared to women’s. Taking these unique skin qualities of women and men into account, we have developed products to specifically target these different skin concerns.

Follow these simple masking routines for him and her to ensure you look your best this Valentine’s Day.

For Him

Step 1.


Use our Men’s Charcoal Facial Scrub, containing natural exfoliant, walnut shell

(no nasty microbeads), to remove dead cells from the surface of the skin. This helps

prevent clogged pores and allows your other products, like a daily moisturiser, to

work harder to keep you looking young.


Step 2.

Hydrate and Reboot

Try our Skin Republic for Men Energising Face Mask Sheet. Think of it as a skincare boost to your regular exfoliate - cleanse-moisturise routine – something to do when your skin needs a reboot. The mask comes in two sections: one for the top and another for the bottom of

your face. This makes it ideal for bearded guys who can wear it over their beards or

keep until you’ve removed your scruff as a great post-shave treatment. This mask

is perfect for men who are concerned about tired, dry skin and the onset of

wrinkles. Containing wrinkle-fighting CoQ10, vitamin E and soothing vitamin C,

the sheet mask cools and hydrates your skin, leaving it smoother than your pick up

lines. After 20 minutes your face feels as though it has been refreshed and reborn.


Step 3.

Eye Love

The Skin Republic for Men Anti-Fatigue Hydrogel Under Eye Patches are gel under

eye patches, infused with caffeine, volcanic ash, and vitamin C, cooling the skin upon

application. Instantly reducing under-eye puffiness, dark circles, and dryness

eliminating pesky signs of tiredness to reveal eyes which look more awake and



For Her

Step 1.


Try our Charcoal Peel-Off Face Mask for a deep exfoliation. It will get rid of any

nasties blocking up your pores, leaving your skin healthy and ultra-soft. Charcoal

is an excellent skin purifier, which acts as a magnet to draw out dirt, oil and bacteria

from the skin’s pores. Activated charcoal is so effective that it's proven to adsorb 200

times its own mass.


Step 2.

Brighten and Hydrate

Our Skin Republic Vitamin C Brightening Face Mask Sheet is a must for glowing skin.

The radiance-enhancing vitamins C, E, and 7 plant extracts help reduce the appearance

of age spots and imperfections for a bright and even skin tone. It hydrates and

revitalises the skin to reveal a radiant and luminous complexion.


Step 3.

Bright Eyes

Use our Collagen Hydrogel Under Eye Patches for an intensive under eye

treatment that helps reduce the visible signs of aging. Collagen, green tea, aloe

vera and vitamins A and E help target five eye-area agers: the appearance of

fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity and firmness, puffiness, dark circles and
