26′ Deep Ocean Alchemy: 30 Days Skincare Challenge For Him


When it comes to looking after our skin, many people tend to be ignorant or neglect that it’s important to look after it well. It is similar to how we like to wear nice clothes, were we pay in great detail on how we style clothes on our bodies. With skincare, we use on our face—going by the various steps to complete a routine.

As we know, skin is the largest organ on our body. It helps to protect us from bacteria, harmful effects of UV rays, it helps to regulate body temperature and filter out toxins. More than often, men that I’ve known over the years ignore specifically about caring for their largest organ—skin. No matter how many times I bring up the importance of having good essential skincare—the conversations die fast.

My husband is someone who doesn’t really get skincare and think it’s more of a female concern. Over the years, he has explored various brands to help him combat returning skin issues like redness, dry skin and breakouts. Like majority of men out there, he just wants to use products that works and takes no time to complete.

26’ Deep Ocean Alchemy is a local Australian brand that is formulated using key ingredient Sea Kelp that is sustainably sourced along with other natural ingredients to produce a range of men’s grooming products that are good for him and for the planet.

After recently discovering 26′ Deep Ocean Alchemy, I am certain I have convinced him to stick to this simple 2-3 step skincare routine. I have asked him to take up a 30 day skincare challenge using these products to help minimise the look of redness, dry skin and breakouts. These are his main skin concerns, which he was happy to consider because he had nothing to loose but gain a happy and healthier looking skin.

Men’s Shave Gel With Kelp Complex + 175g $24.99

The new men’s shave gel with kelp complex + claims to help reduce unnecessary trauma that can often be experienced with shaving and incorrect use of tools. The shave gel is formulated using high-quality natural ingredients like jojoba oil, macadamia nut oil, aloe vera juice, seaweed extract and olive leaf extract.

For the last month, I found using this men’s shave gel to perform better than shaving creams that I have used in the past. I could actually see what I was shaving. The gel seemed to help soothed shaved areas, minimising redness and irritated skin that I had once experienced with other brands.

Men’s Beard Oil With Kelp Complex + 25ml $24.99

The men’s beard oil with kelp complex + claims to help nourish hair from root to tip. It is formulated with natural ingredients like jojoba, coconut and argan oils to help beard tamed, smooth and protect stubborn beards.

I did not use this product as you can see that I do not have a beard and found it was not a useful product to be included in my simple skincare routine.

Men’s Face Wash With Kelp Complex + 150g $26.99

The men’s face wash with kelp complex + claims to gently cleanse, purify, soothe and soften skin from the daily environmental stressors and other factors in a man’s lifestyle. It is formulated with a powerhouse of natural ingredients of Australian macadamia nut oil, Tasmanian sea kelp extract, rich traces of minerals, vitamins and amino acids.

I used this facial wash twice daily and found it felt less harsher than some products I have used in the past. My skin texture has improved making it feel smooth and soft without stripping my skin after each use. My skin appears calm, clean and bright.

Men’s Facial Moisturiser With Kelp Complex + 100g* $32.99

The men’s facial moisturiser with kelp complex + claims to help revitalise, restore moisture levels and promote a healthier and youthful appearance. It is formulated with jojoba oil, finger lime, coffee and seaweed extract.

I really enjoyed using this moisturiser as my last step in my skincare routine. Although this did not have the lightest texture that I am usually accustomed to, I did continue using it and I am happy with the results with how it has helped to hydrate, soothed and kept my skin in.
