Tried and Tested- Gaia for Men

Thursday, 26 September 2013

Hmm I do believe Mr. M is making him quite comfortable within my blog in his Daddy’s Little Corner. He asks me quite often if I need his input in anything or if there is something he can review.
So he was a like a little boy in a candy store when I told him that some Gaia products had been sent to me and there was a couple of boys products in there. I think if I was not around he probably would have been skipping around the lounge room in excitement.  So now I will shut up and hand you over to the blog hog.
 
I am just going to cut straight into as I don’t like to blabber on too much like my beloved does. The first product under my microscope is
 
Gaia made for men- Shave Gel 150mL

A low foaming gel that will leave your skin soft after shaving.
 
Free from the harsh drying agents, sulphates and petrochemicals that can lead to rashes and razor burn.
  Certified Organic Evening Primrose Oil
  Certified Organic Wheatgerm Oil
  Certified Organic Avocado Oil
  Certified Organic Chamomile
  Certified Organic Aloe Vera
Witch Hazel Extract
 
As I am not a pro-blogger like my better half and don’t really have a clue about these ingredients but I DO know that certified organic products are great for your body inside and out and also the environment. I don’t personally feel a difference when using organic products and normal ones and wouldn’t really know if it wasn’t for the sticker or label. Actually the one thing I do notice is also the smell, you don’t smell chemicals and it is very much a natural smell.
 
I do much prefer a gel then a cream/foam especially those from a can. Since Erin has started her blog she has really turned me away from the cans and got me hooked on gel or oil. Although I only like oil on certain days when shaving as it can get quite close and irritate my skin so I really have to be feeling it! But I could use a gel all day round and every day of the week, it is the best shave.
 
Gaia’s shave gel really does foam up nicely if you really rub it into your skin, which for me creates the perfect shave.
 
 
The second and last product I was sent is
 
Gaia Made For Men- Face Créme

A light moisturiser and aftershave balm in one to keep skin soft and supple.  Cooling certified organic spearmint leaves your skin feeling fresh without oiliness. 
 
Easily absorbed and free from mineral oil, this light non-greasy formula is non-clogging and wont leave an oily residue.
 
Contains sunflower, organic avocado and organic wheat germ oils to hydrate and moisturise the skin, reduce the appearance of sun damage, smooth facial lines and generally help you maintain a youthful appearance.
 
I am not a cream on the face kind of guy but will use them for review purposes and be completely honest. These kind of thing will be put under a microscope though as they are not the kind of product I would use very often at all.  
 

So when I first put a blog on my hand I did notice that it was quite watery, which I do like. There is nothing worse then slapping on some product that feels like I have dipped my face in a deep fryer. It took me a bit to get used to when first applied to my face but once it was on there for just over 2 minutes or so, I couldn’t tell I had any product on my face at all as my skin soaked it right up and still remained matte looking… And no I don’t know that because I know my makeup but more because I know my paint being a tradie haha.
