I’m excited for this post as I’ve decided to give Jake a little section on my blog. All posts he has featured in have seemed to do really well, the popular thing! He’s mine though, sorry. I recently had a gentleman from Admiral Grooming pop me over an email to ask if Jake would like to try out some of their mens grooming products. I thought reviewing these would be the perfect way to get things up and running on his section which will be named “The Gentlemans View”. We’re not 100% sure what the section is going to include yet but I imagine it’ll be a bit of everything, just like my blog in general.
Breaking down the stigma around men interested in beauty and taking care of themselves being a feminine or homosexual thing is something I would really like to discuss in future posts. The fact that I’m with a man who enjoys essentially pampering himself pleases me greatly for so many reasons. A few of them being that it makes gifts easier, It means he’s genuinely interested when I speak about all sorts of products and he’s not one of those who believes that “men should be men” and all that macho rubbish. A man should be whoever and whatever he wants to be, it doesn’t make him any less of one because of others opinions.
ANYWAY, I’m going to let Jake talk now as I’m taking over his section already!
I’m completely sold on this product, there’s nothing to complain about. This is for sure the new staple in my routine after using The Body Shop products for a long time. Mens skin is naturally thicker and more coarse than females and I feel like this scrub is made to compliment that. 10/10 product, it’s on the top of my re-purchase list.
Prior to using this paste, I’ve been an avid VO5 Matte Clay lover but this will definitely be my new first choice. The texture is not greasy, it has brilliant hold in the hair and it’s very durable for someone with an active lifestyle. I use a lot less of this product too compared to the Matte Clay and the effect is just as good if not much better. It’s brilliant so far and despite it being more expensive, I get double the use out of it aswell as a much more mature scent.
I’ve had my hair cut since the 2 week update and I feel that it held better when my hair was slightly longer. Despite this, I’m still much preferring it over the VO5 Matte Clay and using it daily. The basil extract is one of my favourite things about it due to the scent it gives. Although it’s a little pricier than your average mens hair product, I’d say it’s definitely worth it for the quality and how long it lasts.
Overall, I’ve been highly impressed by Admiral Grooming products. The quality and size of them is fantastic and you get good value for money in terms of usage. Any of their products would make a perfect gift or just something to treat yourself with. Admiral products have now replaced the majority of my skincare and shave routine and I’m really keen to try the shave set next. This includes pre-shave gel, shave cream and a moisture balm for the face which I’m sure are just as brilliant as all of these. Anyway, thanks for reading and back to Al!
So there you have it. I’ve got to say, it’s really nice to see Jake sticking to a skincare routine and properly taking care of himself as his usage is usually really sporadic. It’s also much nicer having a boyfriend with softer facial hair.
