The mojito-inspired face cream

Electro Shock-HERO.jpg

Some people swear that the only reliable solution to a hangover lies at the bottom of a Bloody Mary glass. But unless you happen to work at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, this isn’t always a viable option. Perhaps aware of this, the male grooming gurus at Nickel have taken the cue for its latest restorative serum from the cocktail bar rather than the laboratory.

Its new Electro Shock concentrate (priced £23 for 30ml) — the latest addition to the brand’s fatigue-banishing Morning After Rescue range — is directly inspired by the zingy powers of the humble mojito. Thankfully, this doesn’t mean it comes packaged in a novelty highball glass.

Taking the nourishing key components of the iconic drink (minus the rum) as its basis, it features cheek-stinging bursts of lime and guarana designed to revive your skin and disguise your lack of sleep. These natural main ingredients are backed by peppermint to help perk up your complexion, moisturising cane sugar and an instantly soothing lifting agent. The invigorative benefits of a cocktail at your desk without the looming threat of an HR tribunal? We’ll drink to that.
