Favourites - The Boyfriend Edition


men1

I thought I'd do something a little bit different on the blog today and share my boyfriend's favourite products. My boyfriend Alex is a huge part of my life, as is blogging, so it seems only natural to combine the two. He has written a guest post for my blog before which was fairly popular, so I thought I'd share some of his current favourites with you all!

Elemis Deep Cleanse Facial Wash*

Facial cleansing used to be almost non-existent with my boyfriend, until we discovered a few products that he liked and felt happy to use. When I received the Elemis Deep Cleanse Facial Wash for him to try, I was hesitant that he'd like it. He took one sniff and declared it to be a winner in terms of scent. Thank goodness. He's been using this for a good month or so now and he's really grown to like it; with a big, rough beard, this helps keep his skin feel refreshed whilst also managing to keep his skin actually looking nice. A big winner in his books.

L'Oreal Men Expert Vita Lift

My boyfriend suffers from dark circles under his eyes, so something to help brighten up that area was something he's been looking for for a while. He's tried out a few other creams, but it can be pretty frustrating to apply a second cream in his eye area as well as a facial cream. The L'Oreal Men Expert Vita Lift makes life so much easier with a roller ball built in, so it takes only a few seconds. My boyfriend has been using this for a long time now, and I've seen fantastic results! 


men4

Clinique Age Defence Hydrator SPF 15
This has been another favourite of my boyfriend's for a while. I've tried him on other moisturisers but he keeps drifting back to this one. He loves how easy this one is to use, as it both hydrates and protects his skin with SPF 15. The Clinique Age Defence is non greasy and absorbs really quickly into the skin, making life a lot easier. It also has an extremely neutral scent. In terms of age defence, we haven't really noticed anything significant but I'm sure that's something we'll see in many years to come.


men5

Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub

Every now and then, my boyfriend would enjoy a nice Lush bath to unwind. Since he's been diagnosed with epilepsy, we've been told no baths. We're not sure how long that's supposed to last for, but until we have a follow up, we've been adhering to that. I popped down to my local Lush and had a look at what shower products I could get him to use for a more luxurious shower. As soon as I saw Rub Rub Rub I knew he'd love it. A very soft yet intense scrub perfect for your body and hair (hello, beard scrub) this has become a favourite of his very quickly. This also has a really nice lemony scent to it. This can also double as a shower gel, too, which means it's a nice two-in-one product. We've already gone back for more.

men6

Molton Brown Sport Anti-Perspirant Sportstick*

My boyfriend did a guest post on my blog last year and included this. We've really noticed a big difference from when he uses the Molton Brown Sport Anti-Perspirant to when he uses a supermarket brand. Although this one has a bit of a hefty price tag for what it is, we've both agreed that for how long it lasts and how well it works for him, the price is justified. 
This product was originally provided for consideration but has since been repurchased a number of times, and will be in the future, too. 

men7

Armani Eau Pour Homme

Personally I've always been a little obsessed with Armani scents, particularly from the men's range. My boyfriend already had a fairly extensive range of colognes when I discovered my love for Armani, so it was a bit pointless. When we traveled overseas, I decided to pick up a mini gift set of a few different Armani fragrances for men. My boyfriend was particularly taken with the Armani Eau Pour Homme and has used the entire mini bottle up. Needless to say, a full sized bottle was on his Christmas list this year and Santa certainly delivered.

Hopefully you've enjoyed this little glimpse into my boyfriend's favourite products. He wasn't overly keen on writing up the post himself this time as he's busy starting up his own gaming/pop culture blog, so I decided to write it up myself with a little (by that I mean a lot) of input from him. So if there's a special man in your life that needs some vanity products, hopefully this has helped you in narrowing some down for him to try out.

You can also read Alex's guest post about some of his then favourite grooming products here.


Have you or your special man tried any of the above products? If so, what were your thoughts? Any recommendations on what my boyfriend should try out next?

  2. You've done well in terms of getting your man on the beauty band wagon! Mine is a lot more resistant to it. At the moment, it's just Cetaphil, period.
