MANKIND GROOMING BOX REVIEW

I’ve recently found mankind.co.uk and I was instantly in love! Within 10 minutes of browsing I was drawn to the Limited Edition January Grooming Box, which offers £75 worth of male grooming products for only £25! It comes with a selection of face, hair and body products and would make a perfect gift for him!

I’ve tried all the products now and I’ll go in a bit more detail below.


L’Oréal Professionnel Shampoo

I like this shampoo. It has a nice lather and smells good! I didn’t notice anything special about it but it’s a good basic! My hair did feel really clean afterwards, which considering the amount of hair product I had in beforehand, is definitely a good thing!


Scaramouche & Fandango Men’s Face Scrub

Honestly, I wasn’t massively impressed with this! I found the exfoliating beads to be a bit sparse and due to this, it wasn’t abrasive enough. Coming from someone who has sensitive skin, you know that’s not good. It’s decent for the price though and it’s small enough to take travelling. If I was to use this again, I’d use it on a daily basis and as more of a face wash with additional exfoliating properties.


Foreo Cleanser

I’ve been using my trusted Kiehl’s cleanser for years now, so I was a bit sceptical to try something new. This product is actually really good! I have dry and sensitive skin so always tend to stay away from male specific grooming products, as they tend to be too astringent for my skin. This isn’t the case with the Foreo Cleanser. It’s an inky blue colour and has a slight lather too it. I find it leaves my skin feeling really fresh and clean. Plus, it smells lovely! I’ll definitely repurchase this.


Redken for Men Work Hard Paste

I had high hopes for this product. I’m always on the lookout for a good hair product that has strong hold, isn’t shiny but doesn’t leave my hair looking dry. First impressions of this, I wasn’t keen. I’m not too sure whether I put too much on or what, but it left my hair feeling dry and looking dull! I gave it the benefit of the doubt and used it as a pre-styler. I put it in damp hair and dried it. I definitely like how it left my hair looking this way. Everyone’s hair will react differently, but definitely give it a go. Just for reference, I have coarse, curly hair!


Men-U Shave Cream

I’ll admit something here – I don’t use shaving cream usually! I’ve gotten into the habit of using my foaming gel cleanser as I find most shaving creams dry my skin out. This one didn’t! It left my skin feeling smooth and the razor went across my skin with ease. It definitely protected me against razor burn and this was one of the best shaves I’ve had in a long time! Definitely would recommend.


Daily Vitamins Multi Vitamins

I don’t really have much to say on these. Vitamins are vitamins, right? I’m running out of my current multi vitamins, so I’ll use these once they’re done. It was a nice little extra to the pack though.


Protein Chox Bar – Cookies and Cream

I can’t say I’ve had a lot of protein bars to compare this too, so apologies if this isn’t as informative as you’d like. It tasted good though, was rich, creamy and sweet!


So there you have it, my review on the Mankind Grooming Box! I would definitely purchase this again! All the products are full size so this box is definitely great value for money. It’s a shame they don’t do it every month, as I’d definitely subscribe to this! The delivery was really quick! I ordered on Saturday and it was here by Monday. It’s still available now so with Valentine’s Day around the corner it would be a great gift!

Until next time,

S.
