Lqd is an Australian made natural skincare brand designed for men. It’s use isn’t exclusive to men though, as I have been using it every day and I love it. It’s main ingredient is COASE™ - coffea arabica seed extract, gathered from the green coffee bean which is actually an amazing ingredient for skincare. The first time I tried coffee in my products was in a shampoo. It has stimulating effects on hair follicles, so to experience it now in my skincare, it really has a similar effect in keeping skin feeling invigorated and looking plump and smooth.
Developed in Australia under one of the worlds harshest climates, this range of skin care products has been created exclusively by men, with a philosophy based around helping men look the best they can, using only premium natural and organic ingredients, by utilising the latest breakthroughs in natural skin care science
One of the creaters of Lqd studied Science (Chemistry) at Melbourne University, so had a strong grounding in biochemistry. His idea for the range excited one of Australia’s best-known developmental chemists and together, over a period of two years, they perfected the Lqd product range.
I tried two products from the range -
Lqd BODY coffee wash
This luxurious body wash is so smooth, I especially love it for shaving my legs and underarms! It prevents nicks and cuts and is super moistursing. It lathers up very nicely, which is amazing, considering this contains no sulphates or parabens. It also contains jojoba (one of my favourite ingredients) and aloe vera, roshehip oil and avocado oils. This bottle has also lasted me for months and I use it every day, twice a day.
The concentrated coffee seed oil acts as powerful antioxidant, which in turn stimulates collagen and elastin and protects from free radical damage. Another handy action of caffeine in skincare is it stimulates bloodflow and reduces the appearance of cellulite.
The Aloe vera make is ultra smooth, it really just glides on so perfectly.
It smells like a freshly brewed café latte!
Lqd BODY coffee scrub
This coffee scrub is super effective, the fine grittiness cleanses skin thourougly and leaves it feeling vibrant. It contains activated charcoal to absorb toxins and two powerful exfoliators, Organic Fair Trade coffee and Australian Ocean Mineral Sea Salt. It polishes skin and removes debri.
Exfoliate, smooth and hydrate your skin with this super gritty, coffee scrub.
With activated charcoal to absorb and trap toxins, grease, pollution and sweat. And two powerful mechanical exfoliators, Organic Fair Trade coffee and Australian Ocean Mineral Sea Salt, to remove the debris while polishing the skin.
What I love about these products is that they are so effective, but also very mild when it comes to my sensitive skin. The scent is subtle, yet I can still smell a hint of premium coffee.
I think it’s great to see a natural skincare brand designed for men, I love the packaging, black and white, stylish and suits any bathroom.
Lqd products include high levels of AHA’s, BHA’s, Anti-Irritants, Anti-inflammatory agents, Vitamins, Anti-Oxidants and anti-aging peptides.
Lqd can be used by guys (and gals) with even the most sensitive skin conditions, including rosacea, dermatitis, eczema and keratosis.
They have excluded commonly used ingredients that are known skin irritants icluding sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), sodium dodecyl sulphate, parabens, paraffin, phthalates, menthol, colourings, and fragrances.
I think it's a great addition to any skin care routine and if you have a partner who is also into natural skin care you can share these products in your bathroom! Although you might end up fighting over them and will have to buy your own!
