Seaweed For The Skin

Seaweed For The Skin

For thousands of years, people have used seaweed for countless purposes. From the Chinese in 600 BC who saved it for the ruler’s special guests to the Roman Empire who used seaweed, and other sea vegetables, as an ingredient for medicine. Nowadays seaweed is increasing in popularity across the globe as an ingredient in many cuisines. From salads to crisps, sushi to omelettes, people are reaping the benefits of its rich vitamin B, zinc and iodine content. But did you know it’s also very good for your skin?

Excitement Is Building!

Excitement Is Building!

The 30th March saw us reveal our new Peppermint & Tea Tree with CBD range and announce that all eight products will be available for sale from mid-May. It’s safe to say that the feedback we continue to receive on both the packaging design and the products themselves has been phenomenal.

‘Why CBD?’, We Hear You Ask

‘Why CBD?’, We Hear You Ask

A couple of weeks ago we revealed our brand-new Peppermint & Tea Tree with CBD range and it’s safe to say it went down a storm!   We’ve received some great feedback from you all, with the most popular question being ‘When can we buy it?’. The good news is you don’t have long to wait – it should be available by mid-May.  But there’s one more question that’s arisen a few times, and that’s ‘Why did we choose to add CBD oil?’.

Last month we revealed the first of our exciting new product launches; our Peppermint & Tea Tree with CBD range, featuring eight exciting new products.   But now we want to reveal our second exciting product launch; the extension of our current Signature Range!

Revealed! Our New Peppermint & Tea Tree with CBD Range

Revealed! Our New Peppermint & Tea Tree with CBD Range

Last Friday we finally revealed the eight products that will feature in our exciting new Peppermint & Tea Tree with CBD range.  It’s been a long time in the making; formulating, testing, packaging designing, naming, the list goes on.  But we wanted to get it right and create a range of products our customers will love.  And we truly believe we’ve nailed it!

Support Independents

Support Independents

We’re increasingly seeing unhelpful comments on social media, directed at fellow independent businesses, advising people not to purchase their products in case they catch coronavirus from the packaging / delivery materials.  The reality is that independent businesses, like us, need online customers more than ever right now, so we’re all putting measures in place to help guarantee everyone’s health and safety. 

A Very Different Mother’s Day

A Very Different Mother’s Day

The vast majority, if not all, of us are experiencing a very different Mother’s Day to those of previous years. Some of you may be isolating at home with your mothers, others will be in separate houses, whilst the less fortunate may be apart from their mothers as a result of the devastating impact of coronavirus.

Six Tips For working From Home

Six Tips For working From Home

Many of us are finding ourselves in unusual circumstances, likely now working from home for the foreseeable future.  And whilst that sounds great – no more commuting, a longer lie-in, Netflix on-tap, more time with family – the reality can soon turn out to be very different. I should know, I worked from home for six years in a previous job.

To Our MESOA Community

We completely understand that shopping for skincare and grooming products may not be top of your agenda, however, our MESOA Community is a place of recovery, strength and unity that is available 24/7.  Something we can all stand by.  A place where we can all come together and share our stories to help each other. 

How to PROPERLY Wash Your Hands.

How to PROPERLY Wash Your Hands.

You might think it’s a case of simply adding a bit of soap, to some running water and rubbing your hands for a few seconds then towel drying.  But you’d be wrong.

Why Should You Use A Face Scrub?

Why Should You Use A Face Scrub?

Here at MESOA For Men, one of our key aims is to educate men on why they should be taking care of themselves and how best to do it.  One of the questions we’re most asked is ‘How do I get rid of spots and blackheads?’.  But that’s not necessarily the question you should be asking.   It should be ‘How do I prevent spots and blackheads?’.  And the answer to that is to use a good quality exfoliating face scrub.

Groom Your Way to a Healthy Mind

Groom Your Way to a Healthy Mind

Many people have asked us about the link between a male grooming and cosmetics company and male mental health. Obviously, there’s the obvious, direct link between MESOA For Men and CALM, the Campaign Against Living Miserably; 10% of all our UK profits being donated to CALM. But it goes far deeper than that.

Top Tips for a Healthy-Looking Beard

Top Tips for a Healthy-Looking Beard

You may think getting a healthy-looking beard is as simple as just letting it grow. After all, it is hair, and that’s what hair does best. Right? Not quite. If you want a good looking, healthy beard there’s a little more to it.

A WINNING PARTNERSHIP

A WINNING PARTNERSHIP

If you’ve already read our article about Tommy Mallet then you’ll know that our partnerships and collaborations are important to us here at MESOA. Not just so we can sell more products (though of course we’d be foolish to say that doesn’t play a part, and quite frankly we wouldn’t expect you to believe us!), but they’re more than that. We carefully select men, and women, from different backgrounds and industries who all share the same values and goals as we do.That’s why we’re excited to formally announce our partnership with Welsh professional boxer, Joe Cordina.

COMING SOON!

COMING SOON!

We’ve been hard at work here at MESOA HQ, researching new products and formulations for you all to enjoy and benefit from. Some people told us that three products barely constituted a ‘range’, but it was important to us that we didn’t just produce new products for the sake of it, we wanted to offer you what you really wanted.

It’s Okay to not be Okay

It’s Okay to not be Okay

We’re pleased to announce that on the 26th October we will be working with the one and only, Tommy Mallet, star of ITV2’s TOWIE. Tommy’s now been using our products for the last six months, to help take care of his skin and he “absolutely loves it”! Tommy’s a great fit for us here at MESOA, as we work hard to raise the profile of male mental health and to break the stigma around what it means to be a man and change the definition of masculinity for the better.
