REVIEW: Braun Series 5 Shaver

Review: The Braun Series 5 Electric Shaver For the past few months, I've been using razor blades to shave, so when I was gifted the Braun Series 5 shaver a month ago, I was hesitant to make the switch and review it. However, two weeks ago, I made the plunge and started using the Braun Series 5 (5020s model). The change has been surprisingly easy – I expected more razor bumps and irritation – although there are certainly some areas of improvement for Braun to consider. Design and Ergonomics of the Series 5 shaver Braun is known for their attention to detail and ergonomic design, and the Series 5 shaver exhibits both qualities. The shaver itself is a...

Bulldog Skincare Moisturiser Review

A sample of the Bulldog Skincare for Men product range Skincare companies often tout that their products are packed with state of the art ingredients which have been proven by dermatologists and other skincare experts. The problem is that many such ingredients are synthetic and can easily irritate a man's skin. So when I came across Bulldog Skincare for Men, a brand which claims to use natural ingredients, I had review it. Bulldog Skincare is based on the idea that men's skincare should be no-nonsense and straightforward, and that's why they've created a set of products which form the basis of a man's bathroom routine. Whilst there are several products in the Bulldog Skincare range, their standout product...

Best Men’s Body Wash [2014 Edition]

Best body wash for men
A good body wash should help invigorate you and prepare you for the challenges ahead. For most men, this comes down its scent, but the truth is, there is more than what meets the eye when it comes down to shower gels.  A great body wash should awaken the senses and help clear the skin of any impurities. In Summer, it should leave you feeling refreshed, and it in Winter, keep your skin moisturized and not strip its natural oil leaving it dry and flaky. Unlike face washes, body washes usually don't differentiate themselves by skin type. This is because unlike skin on the face which tends to be more soft and sensitive, the skin on our body is thicker is...

Anthony Logistics Glycolic Facial Cleanser Review

Anthony Logistics review Glycolic Facial Cleanser
One of the major mistakes men (and many women) make when it comes to skincare is they keep to what works. That may sound counter intuitive - after all, why mess with what's right? - but when the seasons change, temperature fluctuates or when humidity kicks in, it's in fact the perfect time to revisit your skincare regime because your body will start to change as it responses to the weather outside. Of course, any skincare regime begins with a good cleanser and it's true that if you get this right, all else follows. As a result, I recently tried out the Anthony Logistics Glycolic Facial Cleanser. Anthony Logistics is one of those brands that's been around for a while and...

Review: Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder

advanced night repair estee lauder review
Advanced Night Repair by Estée Lauder Review It's no secret that the skincare market for women is much bigger than that of mens. Billions are poured each year into creating new serums, moisturizers, cleansers etc for the fairer sex. Unfortunately for men, it means we're left with a much smaller pool of products to choose from. But as brands start to recognise men's spending power, this is starting to change. In the mean time though, guys can safely turn to Estée Lauder's iconic Advanced Night Repair if they're concerned about dry and ageing skin. But isn't the Advanced Night Repair for women? The difference between men's skin and women's skin is not profound, meaning that any skincare products 'designed' for women can be also used for men (and vice...

Bread & Butter Skincare Review

Bread and Butter skincare review blog
Bread & Butter's large typeface means you'll never get your products mixed up Bread & Butter Skincare Mens Review Firstly, the Bread & Butter team get props for not putting fragrance in their products.

Elta MD UV Pure Broad-Spectrum SPF 47

Elta MD UV Pure Broad-Spectrum SPF 47 reviews
As any dermatologist will tell you, the sun is one of the main causes of skin cancer and also one of the biggest contributors to ageing skin. Consequently, as someone who spends a lot of time outdoors, it's important that not only do I not get burnt, but that I also keep damaging UV rays at bay. Recently, I bought the Elta MD UV Pure Broad-Spectrum SPF 47 which I've found to be one of the best sunscreens I've used. What do I mean by 'best'? I personally have two measures when choosing sunscreens: 1) Is it a natural sunscreen? 2) And does it leave a white streak on my face ? The Elta MD UV Pure Broad-Spectrum SPF 47 passes both these tests. Firstly,...

le edge review men 2
I recently received a new exfoliating device called Le Edge in the mail. Touting itself as “the next generation in exfoliation”, Le Edge is a razor-like tool with a stainless steel 'edge' to help remove dead and dull skin. Le Edge comes in blue and pink packaging How does Le Edge work? Essentially, Le Edge is a physical exfoliator, meaning that when you slide it across your body, it helps get rid of old skin to promote younger skin. With summer around the corner, most people are bound to show some skin, so if you're considering a day out at the beach, think about exfoliating first before grabbing your swim-shorts.

Biore Release Steam Activated Cleanser

I don't like to veer from my usual grooming routine - "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" is a philosophy I hold dear, but occasionally there are products that I'll trial and test. The Biore Release Steam Activated Cleanser is one cleanser I recently tried and I give it a thumbs up. Whilst"steam activated" and its "SteamActiv beads" is sounds like dermatological jargon, the truth is, it left my face clean and not too oily or dry. Is it better than my favourite Cetaphil cleanser? Probably not, but still, a good cleanser - plus, it contains antioxidants in the form of green tea. Best part is you'll get it for $10.99 at pretty much any supermarket....

If you're skin prefers natural ingredients, then this is definitely the range for you. Firstly, the smell of Mr.'s product is truly amazing.
