In 2015 an Australian family living in Melbourne launched Black Leopard – A range of skin care products for men. The family have never regretted that decision and Black Leopard have been successfully selling products in Australia since. Last year, Black Leopard was launched in the UK. Starting with an initial range of 6 products, they hoped it would be as successful here on UK soil as it was in Australia.
The range is marketed as being designed “by men for men” and reported as being “fuss-free products that do what they say” according to the company themselves. With skin care high on everybody’s agenda nowadays, men are looking for good quality skin care products more and more.
For the past week, my husband has been using the Black Leopard Eye Cream. It comes in a 15ml dispenser. The design is beautiful, masculine and slick. The box and the dispenser have the same design (as do all their other products) – on the top of the box is a silver outline of the map of Australia. The bottles are black with a leopard embossed on the front. The packaging and the dispenser itself look high end and classy. On removing the lid, everything about the bottle and product exudes quality. There are clear instructions about where and how much to apply.
The cream is fragrance free and rubs into your skin easily and has a non-greasy feel, leaving your skin beautifully soft. You only need to use one pump of cream each day, so the 15mls will last a considerable length of time. With an RRP in the UK of £20, this seems quite reasonable for this product.
My husband suffers with dark circles under his eyes (he won’t like me saying that!) but the cream has certainly improved this and the skin around his eyes feels lovely and soft. The cream is anti-wrinkle and contains anti-ageing technology so if he keeps this up for a few weeks, he will look years younger!
He has really enjoyed trialling the cream and has asked me to purchase some more products from Black Leopard for him to try. The next on my list is the 2 in 1 shave gel cleanser. If this makes his face as soft as the eye cream does, we are definitely onto a winner!!
