Hey! 🙂 How has everyone’s weekend been? I attended a Nutrimetics party on Saturday (more on that in an upcoming post :)) and today I have been working on some home renovations (I am in the process of giving my kitchen a makeover and am busily gathering materials together for that – it’s fun but also = $$$ :(), amongst other random stuff!
As part of all this I spent a bit of time with D at his place this afternoon. We were chatting away and I asked him about the products he currently has on his shelf in his bathroom. He kindly agreed to have his views put up on the blog. (Thanks dude! :)) Here is an abridged version of what happened… (WARNING this is a long post! :P)
Neutrogena: Oil-Free Moisture – Combination Skin
D: This is my favourite moisturiser at the moment –this should be reviewed!
S: Ok so tell me about it. How much did it cost you?
D: Uh somewhere between $10-$15 [AUD].
S: What do you like the most about it?
D: It moisturises my skin but it also absorbs [excess] oil at the same time, it reduces shine [visible shine on the skin – when talking with D it became clear that the latter was, to him, a key feature of the product].
S: Is there anything you don’t like about it?
D: Well the cost is higher [considering] the size, compared to other products at the supermarket [D is a bloke always looking for a bargain! ;)].
S: Would you buy this again?
D: Yes I will keep buying it as it’s the only one [moisturiser] out [at the supermarket] that’s good for anti-shine.
S: What would you rate it out of 5 in terms of a) quality and b) value?
D: 4/5 for both.
***L’Oreal Men Expert Skin Caring Shave Gel Anti Irritation Sensitive Skin
(what a mouthful!)
L’Oreal Men Expert Vita Lift Foaming Cleansing Cream: Glycerin
D: I got these L’Oreal products in a pack – when I bought it you got these plus a gym towel for between $20-$30.
S: That’s pretty good value.
D: Yeah I thought getting the gym towel was good too! [My impression when talking with D about these products was that the free towel triggered him to buy the products! I know that I have sometimes been tempted to try a new product/s based on particular promotions/giveaways at the time too. Is anyone else like this???]
S: Tell me about the shaving cream first. What do you like about it the most?
D: It is good for sensitive skin; it doesn’t irritate my skin at all. It also has a nice gel texture.
S: Would you buy it again?
D: I’m not sure; if it was on sale, yes.
S: So what do you think about the cleanser?
D: Well it leaves your face feeling clean but also it moisturises at the same time, so your skin doesn’t feel dry. I would buy it again if it was on sale.
S: What would you rate each product out of 5 in terms of a) quality and b) value?
D: 4/5 for both across the board.
Neutrogena: Deep Clean Facial Cleanser – Normal to Oily Skin
[This product, D estimates, retails for $10-15.]
D: I use this one only about 1x/month – otherwise it dries my skin out too much [I noted that on the packaging that it is designed for daily use but the manufacturers advise to use it less often if it is too drying].
S: It almost sounds like you’d consider this a “treatment” – something to only use now and again?
D: Yeah that’s right.
S: So, given all of that, do you like this product?
D: Yeah as it does deeply clean my face and get rid of the excess oil. I would give it 4/5 overall as it does what it is meant to do!
Palmolive For Men Rapid Shave Foam Sensitive
(sorry for the black frame guys – the image wouldn’t let me crop & re-save :()
D: This should be reviewed too!
S: Ok tell me about this one.
D: It costs less than $10. It’s an inexpensive shaving foam, but despite being “sensitive” it does irritate my skin sometimes.
S: Would you buy it again?
D: Yes if/when I can only afford a cheap shaving cream.
Phew that’s a lot of products in one post! D was a very keen reviewer! 🙂
What do people think about the length of blog posts on this site? OK, too long, too short, or??? I try to vary it to keep things interesting, but all constructive feedback is welcome!
Well that’s all folks for this evening. Thanks for visiting; have a great week ahead!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀
I love that to him a cleanser is a treatment! 🙂
