Biotherm Homme Power Bronze Tinted Moisturiser

If you’re a man, there’s only one thing worse than wearing make-up – and that’s being caught wearing make-up. So it was with extreme caution that I approached Biotherm Homme’s Power Bronze tinted moisturiser. This moisturiser has a hint of bronzer in it which promises a natural healthy look  – so it’s not going to make you change race or anything. It’s also a gel, which mean that it goes on easily and evenly so you don’t get any tell-tale streaks.

I must say, it does deliver on its promises. It was very easy to apply and gave a very subtle effect – more of a healthy glow than a tan. If you’re a pale Anglo-Saxon like myself, it’s a good way of fighting that ghostly winter pallor without making you look like a drag queen.

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.

Top present picks for men from Catwalk Queen

By ShinyMedia on December 17th, 2007

Take a look at Gemma and I sat on the couch at Shiny Towers looking through a selection of gift ideas for men. They’re good for your brother or your bezzie, but frankly I think you just should treat yourself to one of these gift ideas because Christmas is usually disappointing enough!

Maouflage at Sephora

By Isabelle on April 12th, 2007

Manouflage

It seems men’s make-up or manouflage is becoming more and more popular; I remember squealing  ‘Are you wearing blusher?!’ at my unusually radiant friend forcing him to sheepishly admit to a light dusting of MAC blush. H+M were doing mascara for men earlier this year after customer requests. Coming under the euphemistic sub-heading of ‘Complexion Enhancers’ Sephora are stocking a whole range of cosmetics for men. You can choose from Benefit’s You Rebel tinted moisturiser, Jean Paul Gaultier’s Tout Beau kohl pen and concealer, or Dr Hauschka’s Transluscent Bronze Concentrate to prettify your face.
