Kyoku ScrubWe got news of this today by a PR company but thought it fit in really well with the grooming articles we have been posting recently. Basically a new men’s grooming range is launching by Kyoku and they are setting up a free complimentary salon in London on the days before Valentine’s for males to get a 40 minute free facial.

I recommend if you are nearby to try it out, even if it’s just to experience the sensation of a facial – they are not just for girls! I can not recommend the quality of the products as they are new brand but please let me know if you do go along and how the experience went!

Check out the full spiel below…

Kyoku for Men

Newly launched luxury skincare range, Kyoku for Men, have created a stylish boutique pop-up salon to help scruffy Londoners get in to shape for Valentine’s Day.

The bespoke Kyoku salon will be open from 10th – 13th February, offering clients the opportunity to trial the new Kyoku products in luxurious and sophisticated surroundings within central London.

On arrival at the boutique Kyoku space, clients will be welcomed with a unique Kyoku cocktail containing detoxifying green tea and peppermint leaf to complement their skin treatment and to help them relax – away from the hustle and stress of the city outside.

A Kyoku therapist will then treat them to an indulgent and effective 40 minute Volcanic Minerals Facial Experience, using premier skin care products from Kyoku.

The Volcanic Minerals Facial Experience

The Volcanic Minerals Facial starts with a nourishing and energizing facial cleanse using the Kyoku Daily Facial Cleanser, followed by a deep steam to open the pores, calm and aid skin repair.

An invigorating scrub containing volcanic ash pulls excess oils and toxins from the skin, whilst adzuki beans gently exfoliates to remove dead skin cells and ingrown hairs from the face.

To aid full relaxation and eliminate tension, the neck and shoulders are gently massaged with the Kyoku Exfoliating Scrub. Natural ylang-ylang extract opens up the pores and sinuses to provide holistic tranquility.

A deep craniofacial massage, using the Kyoku for Men Facial Moisturiser, which is rich in bamboo and pea extract, rehydrates the skin, while anti-aging peptides smoothes away fine lines and wrinkles to give the skin a refined and chiseled appearance.

To finish, the skin is smoothed with Kyoku Oil Control Lotion, reducing the baseline oil levels and creating a matte appearance. Finally, Kyoku for Men’s Lip Fuel is massaged on to the lips, moisturizing and energizing this delicate area.

To book your free Kyoku Volcanic Minerals Facial Experience, simply go to and register.

Bookings will be taken on a first come, first served basis.

Don’t despair if you are unable to book in for a Kyoku Volcanic Minerals Facial Experience, guests are also invited to visit the Kyoku salon to enjoy a complimentary Kyoku cocktail and skin consultation from a Kyoku skincare expert between 10th and 13th February 2009 (9am-7pm on Friday and 12pm – 9pm all other days).

Kyoku for Men products will be available to buy at the salon with professional advice on the best items for your skin.
