Men’s grooming products are something I haven’t particularly been fond of in the past, the overly fragrance and basic ingredients, jam-packed full of nonsense is something that doesn’t interest me in the slightest.
The world of marketing plays an important role on how we perceive and look at current products on the market and after a year or two ago grooming brands were starting to raise the bar and finally offer high-performance, active skin care for the modern man. Unfortunately, we live in a world where the pressure to look perfectly groomed is a must and social media plays a big part on creating this modern obsession, but, with this empowers confidence and masculinity, a drive for men to face the world in form, and style.
This special post is in collaboration with MMUK Mens Make-Up covering an exceptional skin care product for the image conscious male who prides themselves in looking their absolute best at times, even on lazy weekends.
The Brutal Buffering Energizing Scrub from the ever-growning brand, MMUK MEN, founded by entreperneur and young businessman Alex Dalley. With its clever twist & squirt application from the actual lid, which baffles me on why this hasn’t been created before on most cosmetic tubes, this smart, clever adjustment allows you to apply the desired amount enabling you to have full control of every application. A little tip from me to you is always give this product a light shake before use.
Formulated with salicylic, mandelic and polylactic acids to buff away loose dead skin preventing buildup that may cause an outbreak of impurities. The watery, essence like consistency shouldn’t be something to concern over as this doesn’t affect the products overall performance, although a slightly, thicker consistency would help the product to bind, and feel more manageable for the user. With no foaming agents or added fragrance, you really do feel a true exfoliation from natural jojoba esters inside this tremendous scrub.
If you’re feeling adventurous and have that extra 5-10 minutes to yourself, treat the scrub as a ‘brutal’ facial mask and allow the active charcoal purify clogged pores while the added bamboo extract cleanses. Leaving products on the skin longer than normal gives them more time to work, especially those with exfoliating acids, you want them to perform at their very best.
Before I leave you to decide whether this scrub is brutal enough for you, always apply your exfoliating products to the neck and décolletage area, making sure you apply gently in circular motions, starting from the décolleté then upwards. Grab yourself a tube for the upcoming Winter period as this will keep your skin in check without a doubt.
