Let’s shave to save!

Men! What defines us? The over – priced lines of clothing in our wardrobes, or is it the amazing aftershave resting peacefully in the washroom. Maybe our beloved razor! Well, let me be honest, a bit of everything. Proper grooming, an attitude to die for and a lovely female by our side (okay that’s a bit too much), but yeah these things make us a MAN in the society. Surely nobody loves the furry animals with no grooming etiquettes! But what all does it call for! Aftershaves, lotions, moisturizers, shaving gels, razors, combs, deodorants, and the list won’t ever end. To be honest most of us use the products that shout out ‘for – ladies – only’. Oops, there goes the little secret! But yeah, bitter truth. With a lack of choice for men products we hardly have a say there. So, can we make up for it? Surely… With razors just for us!

Pond’s Men Pollution Out Face wash

Pond's Men Pollution Out Facewash

 

We have always heard and experienced that a cup of coffee will energize you and keep you fresh. We guys love having coffee especially in the mornings, sometimes post lunch to get rid of sleep while working and also most importantly during our evening dates. Coffee today has become an integral part of our daily lives. And so has pollution become a big concern of our life. Well thinking of this Pond’s has come with a unique idea of including coffee bean extract in its new face wash “Ponds’s Men Pollution Out”

I was glad to hear about the launch as I already knew the benefits of coffee beans on our skin and body. I was waiting eagerly waiting for my existing face wash to get over so I could try the new one.

This new Pond’s deep clean face wash is powered additionally by Activated Carbon and Coffee Bean Icy Scrub. The product color is combination of silver and black which definitely shows the content of its colors. The brightening foam removes the dirt layer from your face and activated carbon acts like a magnet to remove the dirt from our skin. As soon as you apply the face wash on your face you start the feeling the cooling menthol and the coffee bean extract along with the scrub beads start exfoliating the dead skin cells. You might not feel the difference immediately on your after the first or second use but you start seeing the difference after about a week or so. I noticed my skin to be a lot fresher and cleaner after about 7- 8 days of regular use of face wash.

This face wash is designed especially for men with active outdoor lifestyle and is a must try for you guys.
I must say that Pond’s as a brand has done really well with coming up with such a unique and a effective face wash for men.
Do let me know guys about review of the Pond’s Men Pollution Out” in the comments section below.

Titan Skinn Verge Review

100ml

After the successful launch of 3 men’s perfume about 2 years back by Titan under the brand name Skinn has now launched its brand new perfume for men called as Verge. I have been waiting eagerly for the launch of the new perfume as the previous 3 perfumes launched by them were successful in market and have been preferred by many including me.

Designed by one of the best perfume experts the new addition to the list of perfumes for men is the  “Verge” for men. As I tried few sprays of the tester the first feel of the perfume I felt was fresh and yet sensual. The top notes of this perfume contain lemon and lavender which gives you a nice clean smell, after a couple of hours as the top notes settles you start getting a distinctive rush of oak moss and patchouli and finally towards the end of the lasting the fragrance settles down to spearmint and mahonial fragrance which gives you a spirited and vivacious smell.

The perfume is dermatologically tested and safe to use on your skin. The perfume is based on the concept of Eau De Parfum(EDP) so the lasting is quite good. The brand claims the lasting of about 7-8 hrs however after personal use I found the lasting if applied on your skinn about 6-7 hrs depending upon the climate.

Overall Verge launched by Titan Skinn is quite exciting and seems quite fresh on your skin. This is definitely a head turner and a must try guys.

Verge is available in 100ml and 50ml bottles.

50ml

The 50ml is priced at Rs.1140 while the 100ml is retailed at Rs. 1840.

It is currently available at all World of Titan outlets across India and also available with LFS like Westside, Shoppers Stop etc and also available on the official Titan Skinn Website and other e-tailers.

Do let me know your views and comments below once you have tried the perfume guys.

RiteBite Nutrition Bars – Review

RiteBite Nutrition Bars – Choco Slim

Protein Bar! I am sure most of you guys already know what is a Protein Bar and their benefits. But not all Protein Bars are good and healthy for you. We generally grab a protein bar as a substitute for meal that we skip. In market you will find Protein bars with added sugars and flavors which are not good as we think they are. The added sugars and flavors added to enhance the taste actually add up to your calories and you might end up gaining more calories. So always ensure that you select a protein bar after the reading the ingredients in it.

Well recently while browsing through I came across these nutrition bars called RiteBite Nutrition Bars. They had a wide variety in terms of flavors and use. They had bars for nutrition, snacking bar, diet bar and few protein bars post workout session as well. As they were new to me I decided to try few of them.
