The Close Shave
Shaving and finding the right products to do so is something that a lot of guys struggle with. So many products you can get in a drug store can be harsh on your skin, especially if you have sensitive or troublesome skin. I recently got contacted by the awesome folks over at Bluebeards Revenge. First off, what a blummin amazing name for a company, secondly they offered to send me a couple of things to try out. They sent me the shave solution and a cooling moisturiser. I have been using them for almost a week now so here's my verdict.
The Shaving Solution
Not only is the packing pretty blumming cool but the product is really good. Before I was using a Nivea For Men shave foam which I found really harsh on my skin and I couldn't leave it on too long because of the stinging from it. This shave solution is really lightweight, it's more like a cream so it in itself feels really moisturising before even putting on the moisturiser. I used a Wilkinson Sword razor which worked as a great combination, the blades never cut as well with the Nivea foam but with this solution I get a really clean shave. They actually claim that most people say they have absolutely no issues with razor burn or acne around the mouth - I don't suffer with either normally so I couldn't say if the product 100% does this or not but it is pretty believable. Really and truly this is a great product and does a great job.
I am always really sceptical of moisturisers as it doesn't take much at all to make my skin feel really greasy so wasn't feeling overly great about testing the product. However, as we reviewers do, I reluctantly used it and was totally surprised. It feels like it actually works into the skin unlike some others I have tried, most moisturisers feel like they just sit on top of your skin, but within minutes this dries off and leaves your face feeling really smooth. The scent is really nice too, it's very masculine but not overly perfumed. I am genuinely going to keep using this as it has kept my skin feeling in great condition.
Both of the products worked way beyond my expectations. I am really impressed and would personally recommend the brand to anyone that has relatively sensitive skin. They have a crazy range of products for you to check out - to have a browse of their site Click Here.
