The story behind Proverb
Proverb founders met at Oxford University. Luke signed a professional rugby contract for Harlequins RFC. He went on to play in the premiership for 11 years. As you can imagine, Luke took his elite health and wellbeing seriously, which led him to join Kirstie in 2009 to launch their first natural and organic range. This brand became exclusive to spas and beauty salons.
This inspired the couple to start their next project and so Proverb was born. Their mission, to create a Men’s skincare brand that would inspire men to be more confident about their skin, body and ultimately their mindset.
Kirstie’s passion and vast knowledge about skin, professional treatments and ingredients gave Proverb the foundations needed to take their idea to the next level and inspire men with introducing a simple 4 step routine that only takes 4 minutes a day. They called it the Proverb 4 x 4 x 4. 4 products, 4 movements, 4 minutes.
Here is a little bit more about those hero products:
Oil Balance Pro Moisturiser
Like any moisturiser, its main purpose is to hydrate and clear the skin. Acai Oil is used as the active ingredient and is clinically proven to help protect the skin and is also an anti-inflammatory.
By massaging this in an upward motion ensuring it covers the entirety of the face and neck will balance, refresh and clear stressed oily skin. Reduce the appearance of blackheads in just 8 weeks of use. Meanwhile slowing down the reproduction of oil in the same amount of time. Nice!
Skin Definition Facial Scrub
We all clean our faces daily, either with a cleanser or just warm water. This might be enough. However sometimes we all need a good scrub and what better way to indulge in skincare than with a protein packed scrub which will not only clean, but improve skin tone and texture.
Massage Skin Definition Facial Scrub in small circles over the face and neck, of course focusing on those grimy, congested areas – don’t worry we have all got them! Remember, not to over use this scrub as it is not recommended for everyday use. Once or twice a week is enough.
Strengthening Skin Serum
We hate to break it to you lads, but there will come a time when you will age and with that comes wrinkles. Luckily Proverb have made sure that you can reduce and strengthen your skin now before it is too late.
The Strengthening Skin Serum is to be applied under your moisturiser daily. It boosts the oxygen levels in the skin and strengthens the ability to protect itself. With added glycoproteins it will repair and fortify skin, and in time reduces ageing.
