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.

License to wear Louis Vuitton

By Jonathan Smith on September 26th, 2008

According to WWD Sean Connery, ex Bond and cantankerous old man could be the next face of Louis Vuitton.

Louis Vuitton, which has featured Mikhail Gorbachev, Keith Richards and Francis Ford Coppola in its “core values” advertising campaign, has landed another surprising agent for its message. Rumor has it Sean Connery, the original James Bond, has posed for Annie Leibovitz’s camera, just in time for the “Quantum of Solace” frenzy.

I would LOVE it if this were true, more old men in adverts I say! And pipes, definitely more pipes!

Brandish Review: Korres Men’s Range Products

By Will Reid on August 5th, 2008

korres.jpg“Oh golly gosh- that looks like it may be over 100ml. Oops for you!” *Grab* “Now, do you know how to reschedule a flight?” I’d like to say that the dragon-lady at Gatwick had spoiled my day by treating me like a dumb blonde (brunette guy by the way!) but it was truly ruined when she took my new Korres products.

The Ginseng Facial Fluid and Ruscus and Chestnut Eye Cream are two amazing products combining natural ingredients with that all improtant dermatological testing for an intense cosmetic experience.

Read on for the full review including product details and ingredients.

Beard mask will shield your shame

By admin on May 27th, 2008

beardwear beard cover.jpgBeing a woman I’ve never had to cope with beard angst, moustache angst maybe, but I totally feel for you if you have a smooth babysoft chin and crave manly face fur.

Which is why I’ve unearthed this beard cover to hide your shame (39 EUR). It’s the brainchild of Aamu Song and Johan Olin, two Finns who make a variety of exciting things. I think it doubles up as a nifty tan template, wear it all summer for an oddball tan line which will detract from your bald visage.

Kiehl’s Facial Fuel

By admin on January 15th, 2008

Kiehls_2So, over the next few weeks I will be road-testing some men’s grooming products for the pages of Brandish.
First up is Kiehl’s Facial Fuel moisturiser, which promises to “uplift dull, fatigued skin”. Vitamin C and E, chestnut extract and soy, will apparently reinvigorate your skin and help protect it from the ravages of modern life.
I know, it’s like “Good one Kiehl’s” but I have to say, I’m sold. I’ve been wearing it for a few weeks now and the number of people who have, unprompted, said I look fresh and young has reached double figures. In that there’s two of them.
Still two ain’t bad – and neither of them knew about this experiment. Plus I really really want to believe it.
What I can be sure of is that it smells nice – all citrussy. It’s a lotion, which is good for greasy skin (creams are too heavy boys!) and it’s absorbed through your pores like a rabbit down a hole. It also gives you a little tingly sensation, which is fun. I’m a total convert.
