Shampoo, shave, and style – that’s what the latest Glossybox for Men promises and for $40 it delivers everything your man needs to groom himself right up.
There are two full size hair items, one full size skin care item, one full size shave item, and two sample size items. The full size items together are worth $78, so this is definitely a bargain box of manly products.
Redken For Men Clean Brew Shampoo (retails for $12.50): you know those commercials where there is a screaming hot guy out in the woods, doing something really manly like chopping down a tree or riding a wild horse? The scent of this shampoo is exactly like what I imagine that screaming hot guy smells like. It’s woodsy and clean and fabulously macho. My husband LOVES this, it really is a terrific shampoo for guys who like working on cars or building houses because it has anti-grit technology that will clean even the most tenacious engine oil out of hair. And if your guy has naturally oily hair, it’s shampoo perfection.
Redken for Men Firm Grasp texurizing hair clay (retails for $19): this gets a big thumbs up from the hubby. It’s a texturizing hair clay that smells woodsy, but it’s not an overpowering scent. It is terrific for shorter hair, leaving a matte finish that looks mod yet rugged.
Nuxe Men Multi-Purpose Eye Cream (retails for $28): it is a small bottle, but it is the full size product. The eye cream is in an airless pump, it’s really terrific packaging. The eye cream is a thin cream that smells vaguely of pine. It is designed to soothe puffiness, decrease dark circles, and decrease the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It sure leaves my skin super soft and hydrated. I got my husband to use it for a few days, and he liked it…but I’m betting it’s not something he will use all the time. Eye cream is a little too much maintenance for him. So guess what? I’m stealing it for myself.
Zirh Pre-Shave Oil (retails for $18.50): this is an oil that your guy smooths on before the shaving cream. It gives the shaving area more lubrication so shaving is easy and razor burn issues are things of the past. It’s a small bottle, but one drop is all my husband needs for shaving his beard, so this will last a very long time. Again, my husband liked it and said it worked great…but I am betting this is one more step he won’t do regularly, although he will reach for it when his razor is at the end of its lifetime. In the meantime, I am using it for shaving my legs.
BVLGARI Man Extreme Cologne (this is a deluxe 0.17 fl.oz. sample, a full size 3.4 oz. retails for $79): what a nice, big sample of this deliciously manly cologne! I find a lot of men’s colognes are way too strong, but this one is subtle and masculine at the same time. Notes include pink grapefruit, Calabrian bergamot, balsa wood, and Haitian vetiver.
There is also a small tube of Sisley Moisturizer that is meant for application after shaving. It’s definitely something to throw in the travel bag for soothing irritated skin.
All in all, it’s a great box. The full size items are terrific and money-wise you get a lot of bang for your buck. Anything my hubby wouldn’t use was of interest to me, so nothing is going to be wasted! I think this is a wonderful gift for the guy in your life. I give a big thumbs up to this Men’s Glossybox. - Lisa
