As the male fashion and grooming market grows even more popular; more and more brands appear, it’s hard to know what is good for your skin and 6,000,000 questions go round your head like some sort of monotonous dermatology roundabout:
- Is moisturiser okay to use twice a day?
- Is daily facial exfoliation too excessive?
- Can I make my hair look thicker with products?
- Is washing your hair everyday too much?
- What about conditioner, does this help dandruff?
- Do supplements make my skin better?
- Can I use lip balm that doesn’t look like lipstick?
- Should I use separate face moisturiser to body moisturiser?
(the answer to all those questions is yes by the way)
It’s no secret that I like to look after myself; the guys over at mankind.co.uk decided they wanted to help me groom myself that extra bit more and decided to send over their Mankind Grooming Box (Worth £110 but sells at an amazing £25). http://tidd.ly/431c7e2f
I love that there’s now dedicated websites and brands for male grooming as I was always really conscious that by looking after my skin I would smell of roses and other floral scents, but now I can carry on smelling musty and manly. Plus women’s and men’s skin are so different; grooming products that successful for women’s skin may have the adverse effect on a guy’s skin.
The box contained the following:
Hanz de Fuko Gravity Paste Hair: http://tidd.ly/14e59fd7
Men-U Shampoo: http://tidd.ly/ff026fa1
Men-U Conditioner: http://tidd.ly/ed96f369
Jack Black ‘The Stick’: http://tidd.ly/20e1c77
Imedeen Man-age-ment: http://tidd.ly/fdbd0a76
Mr Natty’s Shipwreck Shower Gel: http://tidd.ly/ae72b322
A free pair of Levi Socks
Over the next week I will be reviewing the items in the summer grooming box and letting you all know what I feel about each product. From the look and feel of the brand, to the quality and usefulness of the product I’ll try and leave no rock un-turned.
