First of all , a big thank you to the people at Rockface – Pioneering Formulations for sending me the products to review, Any one who has seen this blog will know, “ its all about the sharing ” so i passed some of the products to the Fellas that i work with , hoping for feedback. of the 5 items i passed out to the boys, I haven’t heard a bad word from any of them, and be sure, i think they would tell me
Any way, for the products i kept for me…..
Active Body spray
So its taken me a little while to summarise this product I was sent as with holidays etc i haven’t been around, This Product arrived just before i went on a ten day holiday to the UAE so I can say from a ” smelling nice ” point of view, it kept the smell of any perspiration down in 48+C heat. I cant say that the smell of this is beautiful, but it works at what it does, i was sent this and a few other Samples and I would like to know why the likes of Tesco appear not to have it on their shelves. ( that might just be in my local stores though ) its a good product, it does what it says on the tin, and that’s kind of all you need.It can be bought from the www
Its not a substitute for a shower, its not like a bath, but as the tin says:
Rockface Active Body Spray will keep you fresh and invigorated all day long. Fling it in your gym bag and spray all over for an instant blast of the fresh citrus Rockface fragrance. Use with Rockface 48 hour deodorant.
I would give this a big thumbs up as a part of a gents grooming regime, there are other products that i was sent at the same time , and they are reviewed below
Face and Body scrub
I’m not the most modern ” metrosexual ” man when it comes to grooming, however as it was holidays i though it would give this ago, im not sure if i was using the right amount, or even i f i was doing the right thing with it, but a little bit of the Face and body scrub left me with just a little more than a clean feeling. Ether it was holidays or not, the feeling on my skin was ” extra clean” and although im not sure if the smell is supposed to be the same as the spray , the scent was really nice .
is this supposed to fit into the grooming regime of a young trendy man, i guess it probably is, Unfortunately that’s NOT Oldmanleslie, however don’t let that stop you buying this from the www
Or you can win one from their www page
I would say that their description ” New Rock face Face & Body Scrub might not be made from rock, but it does in fact contain a substance more durable than rock – a blend of crushed walnut shells and ground rice to produce this unique multitasking scrub – fine enough to ex foliate your face and rough enough to ex foliate your body.
Use Rockface Face & Body Scrub once or twice a week for a really deep clean. You’ll feel refreshed, invigorated and your skin will sparkle. Infused with the fresh citrus Rockface fragrance, this hard working scrub is all the exfoliator you need.” Explains the technical side of that ” clean feeling i was talking about pretty well
Post Shave balm
Not many people maintain the daily ” shave routine ” whilst on holiday, I know i may go 2-3 days sometimes, and when i do shave, its often harsh and really stubbly . so it was quite nice to be able to use a “post shave balm ” on a couple of occasions, for me it seemed to take the heat out of the shave. Not a really a lot else i can say about this other than it felt nice & smooth, that was probably down to the razors. but it felt ” Nice ”
the rockface page says ” This smoothing balm is specially formulated with allantoin and aloe vera to hydrate and soothe skin after shaving. Apply liberally and smooth into the skin.” and this is absolutely right.
So in Summary, whilst Rockface – Pioneering Formulations didnt pay for my holiday , they didnt carry my case for me, and they didnt even help me dodge a heavy bag charge. They helped me to feel fresh, tidy , and i guess ready for any problems that were presented to me.
The products i have mentioned above for part of a range which you can see at www.rockface4men.co.uk/ and buy from Sainsburys , Superdrug & waitrose
its not just a site that’s there to sell product, there is all sorts of advice about grooming up there.
All in all, although im sure i am not t their target market, i would say a great range of products, well priced and nicely packaged
