Going Skin deep with Horace Skincare

Another new brand on the block, the Parisian brand that goes by the name of Horace. The bit that immediately jumped out to us was the fact that their branding, is all about natural grooming essentials for men.

Founded in 2016 by friend friends Marc Briant-Terlet-Horace and Kim Mazzilli, who looked long and hard for that right type of skincare product. Their ambition was to eliminate the stigma of expensive & extremely well-designed products or Opting for the cheaper more poorly formulated products.

All of those cogs spinning eventually resulted in both Marc and Kim giving birth to their brand Horace, which we’re about to delve into further.

Horace is about natural and clean products being part of driving the talk on natural resources. All of the all of their products directly in France, containing 95% to sometimes 100% natural ingredients. There are some products out there that have a blatant preference to skin types, which makes shopping around extremely challenging at times. Horace products are suitable for all skin types, even for us folk that have more sensitive skin.


Horace Face Cleanser – £11

Purifying black gel that is the Horace Purifying face cleanser, cleanses the skin and regulates sebum (an oily secretion that comes naturally from the skin). Good regulation of sebum, results in the skin feeling softer and smoother in the long run.
