I’m handing over to Dave for this one for obvious reasons . . .
|Rockface for Men|
Male grooming is all the rage these days. It seems like you can’t turn round without bumping into a plucked, preened perma-tanned you man with a well coiffed quiff. The term metro-sexual was coined to describe a chap who spends as long getting ready to go out as his girlfriend/wife does. To facilitate this trend to wards the body beautiful there are a million and one products whose mission it is to help you look gorgeous. Whilst lightening your wallet.
I’m no stranger to moisturising and scrubbing myself. I even went through a stage of waxing. Not my eyebrows as you might expect (they’re near invisible) but my cheeks would you believe it. The ones on my face, not my arse! As you might imagine this was quite a while ago, when I still had time to spend on myself and money to spend on such products.
I’d forgotten about Colette saying there were some grooming products coming for me to try. So when she handed me a large box one day I thought she was kicking me out! Luckily though it contained a large selection of lotions and potions for me to try. My good box contained:
All weather Moisturiser
Face and body scrub
After shave balm
Active body spray
Now I don’t usually wet shave but for the purpose of this review I’ve given it a go. The shave gel is decent. Foams up nicely in the hand and lasts well before it disappears.The after shave balm is very good. I’ve used balms before and they’ve always left my skin feeling and looking greasy. Not so here. This left my skin feeling cool and dry. A welcome change.I have never used a shave butter in my life. I don’t know what I was expecting when I first used the product but its a slightly thicker cream. Apparently you use it before and after shaving. However I found that I just used it after shaving in the same was as the balm. Very good absorption and no residues or oily skin.That’s the lot. All tested by me. I’m now more pampered and moisturised that I’ve ever been before in my life. Now just point me in the direction of the nearest spray tannery and I’m off to climb a mountain. I’m unfortunately about 5 years too late for a quiff though. If I tried it now there’d be more than a hint of “comb over” going on. No amount of toiletries can save you from that social suicide.
