Valentines gifts – Smellies for Men and Women

28 Jan

It may be a typical gift, but sometimes the good old classics are that for a reason. Yes, a gift that is always useful and practical for any man is the gift of grooming. Whether that be a new aftershave, moisturiser, shaving kit or shower gel it’s never going to go to waste and what’s more you get to reap the rewards of a delicious smelling and pampered partner.

Bulldog Skincare’s ‘Man’s Best Friend’ Set

I’ve always been a fan of the Bulldog range as their products don’t contain controversial man-made chemicals such as parabens, sodium laureth sulfate, artificial colours, or synthetic fragrances. This year they have launched a duo set called ‘Man’s Best Friend’ consisting of the Bulldog Original Moisturiser (100ml) and Bulldog Original Face Wash (175ml). Both products contain  a blend of eight essential oils, green tea, green algae, konjac mannan and vitamin E to help hydrate the skin, and with all that green tea claims to be a great antioxidant. I tested the moisturiser and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it absorbs into the skin. Smells great too! And the face wash was perfect for my greasy skin. I know that this is a gift for men, but I can imagine many women finding that they pinch a bit for themselves if it’s on their boyfriend’s dresser! It would make a great gift as the duo comes in the cutest of tins, square and perfect to wrap! Available in Tesco for £10.

Cute Tin!

Cute Tin!

Verdict: 8 / 10

And for the ladies…

Argania Cashmere Hair Leave-in Conditioner 250ml

Made with certified organic Argan oil this leave in conditioner has a delicious chocolate smell. It left my hair feeling less frizz and fly away and more nourished. Argan oil is very ‘in’ this year so it would make a lovely valentines gift for a woman. Available in Boots for £9.99

Smells yummy too!
