Happy Sunday! I have a few posts lined up, a couple that are not nail polish related! :P Aside from nail polish and books, I also love all things makeup and beauty related :D
We (my husband and I) were recently sent a few HYD For Men products from the wonderful people over at iFabbo. Hubby has taken a stance against shaving, so I decided to test drive one of the products and give my thoughts on the other two! :)
|HYD For Men Shave Cream, Razor Shield, and Buffer Stick|
The only product I tried myself was the HYD For Men Shave Cream since I ran out of blades and the little moisturizing strips fell off the one blade I had left.
The shave cream has a very clean citrusy scent that is not overpowering like other similarly scented products. Unlike shave gels, this is a cream. It is thick enough to provide full coverage, but thin enough to spread easily. Since I used this on my legs, you would have to use quite a bit of product for both legs.
Also, the shave cream doesn't lather and foam like traditional shave gels do. I would use this again and will definitely be pushing hubby to use this! :)
The HYD For Men Buffer Stick removes dead skin cells and exfoliates the skin. As a female, I know how important exfoliating is! Your moisturizers work better, your skin is softer. The buffer stick is also supposed to prevent ingrown hairs. I know hubby gets a few of those painful ingrown hairs when he hasn't shaved for weeks and then suddenly decides to shave. Since this is a microdermabrasion, it is recommended that you start off using only once a week, then increasing as needed, not to exceed 3 times a week. Too much microdermabrasion can irritate your skin.
The buffer stick comes in a twist-bottom container with a screw-on lid. As with the shave cream, this has a very pleasant scent. Not overpowering but subtle. It does have a slight floral scent, but not so much so that your man will be a walking floral arrangement ;)
And lastly, we have the Razor Shield, which claims to extend the life of your blades. Men with thicker coats will go through more blades than the average man. Over time, blades dull and become impossible to use. You get razor burn, there is a lot of tugging, and your skin isn't as smooth as it is when you pull that blade fresh out of the package and use it for the first time. The Razor Shield is supposed to keep your blades moisturized and protect them. This comes in a small pump bottle and you'll need to prime the pump a couple of times before the product comes out.
I'll definitely be using this on hubby's blades, as well as mine. Apply this after each shave. Note - Not for use on electric razors! I imagine because this is an oil-based product, it would lock up an electric razor and burn out the motor.
HYD For Men products are dermatologist tested, paraben free, non-irritating, and are not tested on animals.
