This is a little change up I’ll do every now and again when my bloke finishes off the skincare bits he uses. So you’ll get the guys v girls empties and a little bit of a different view point if you fancy getting something for a male friend, boyfriend/husband, brother,dad or even your uncles this should give a little insight into whats worth getting. My male view point is my fiance who has slowly been directed (or nudged) into trying new things out. He has sensitive skin beyond belief to the point where he can’t even use the bath balistics at Lush. We don’t know why he reacts he just does hes a sensitive old soul!
Guys v Girls
Guys – Bulldog Original Moisturizer – 100 ml £6.39 This one is a little bit on the balmy side and too close to almost greasy. I prefer the sensitive version as this one takes too long to rub in to my skin. The smells masculine without being excessive
Girls – Lush let The Good Times Roll Cleanser – £6.35 100g – This is my third tub and I go back to it time and again because it smells amazing. Haven’t got sick of it yet anyway but would only use it on my face. Doubles as a mini scrub as well and got into using it at night to remove the work day grime, nice!
Guys – The Body Shop Arber and Kistna Hair & Body Wash – £6 200 ml – These are great products as I don’t react to them and have purchased them multiple times. The Arber (purple one) is a fruity grape smell which I like as an alternative to standard guy scents. The Kistna is an unusual scent along the manly side and I like it almost as much as the Arber. Both get me really clean but don’t dry my skin out. You also do have to use loads so they last a decent length of time.
Girls – Philosophy Cinnamon Buns 3 in 1 – £14 480 ml – Fine as a shampoo, like it as bubble bath treat but love it as a shower gel. I think in the bath you have to use a lot to get the smell but then end up with way too many bubbles. As a shower gel its scent is much more concentrated and has that freshly baked cinnamon bun smell to it. Can’t wait to try the coconut frosting version when I can afford it.
Guys – No7 Hair & Body Wash – £7.50 200 ml– This is good and has a bloke kinda scent. It’s not excessively strong and I prefer to use it as a shampoo as my hair can get quite oily but this gets my hair squeaky clean. I do like the body shop ones more now than this one.
Girls – Lush – Snow Fairy Shower Gel A limited edition at Christmas that I’ve bought time and time again. I only got a little one this year and I’m thinking the love has worn off. It’s very sweet but it does the job I just prefer other products more. I actually finished it off just using it as shampoo as I’d run out of the Toni & Guy.
Guys v Girls – Toni & Guy Shampoo £7.49 250 ml and Mask £7.49 200 ml – We usually share a set and that lasts around 4-6 weeks. For me shampoo just al seems the same maybe because I don’t like to spend much on them. On the flip side it’s all about the mask and that really stood out. You didn’t need to use loads and it made my hair soft and much more manageable than normal.
If you like the idea of a guy v girls empties or even favourites post in the future comment and let me know.
