Mark Turner Kiss and Makeup’s favourite metrosexual gives his verdict on the Moosehead range
Spending most of my supermarket time between the ‘save 3p on sticky, dented, own-brand, multipack cans of diet coke’ section and perusing what’s new in the 2 for 1 section, I’ve never been enticed into buying any Moose Head products (plus I go to Tesco and they’re at Sainsbury’s). So when someone thrust a handful of these my way I thought I would add my two cents worth.
The 3 products I’ve mainly been using are the Mellow Deo Spray, £2.49, Look Buff Face Scrub, £3.99 and Moose-Turising Face Hydrator, £4.99. My initial thoughts were the body spray and moisturiser are distinctly average. They do what they are supposed to do, no more no less with no fuss or excitement. The mellow spray has a flat, boring scent and the moisturiser is a standard, vitamin enriched, slightly greasy affair.
The face scrub is so good however, it has rapidly been promoted to the honourable position of face scrub most suitable for hangovers.
This scrub has an eye-watering menthol element to it which delivers a swift kick to your sinuses and provides an invigorating and refreshing wash. Combine this with what seems like endless amounts of exfoliating beads and you have a face scrub ideal for use in the shower and taking the first step towards recovery.
The unappealing packaging combination of lurid brown with bright plastic lids and the overall brand image trying to suggest us men are akin to moose is the only significant drawback from what I would class as a satisfactory products. The scrub will definitely be a regular purchase, but the only way the rest are coming home is if they somehow appear next to my sticky cans of coke.
All available from Sainsbury’s.
