I am a firm believer that men should be taking good care of their skin unless they want to end up looking like a dried out old prune. In this day and age there is nothing to be embarrassed about buying a moisturiser and the skin care companies have caught on with nearly every mainstream brand now doing a range for men.
Bulldog is a skin care range that has been designed especially for men from the ingredients right down to the packaging. Even the name itself is masculine and designed to ensure that men can buy it whilst still feeling masculine.
I personally couldn’t even imagine not using a moisturiser because my skin becomes really dry, tight and uncomfortable after washing and I need some moisturiser to get it feeling comfortable again. Also shaving really irritates my skin and I like to put something on it to help take away the sting and also to put some moisture back in it since the razor and shaving gel dries it out so much.
Bulldog Anti-aging moisturiser is now really easy to find in all the main high street chemists and can even be found in the supermarket. It isn’t in the premium end of the spectrum when it comes to these things but then nor is it in the extra cheap section and at £8.50 it falls somewhere in between the two. Although it is £8.50 I genuinely wouldn’t recommend paying this as I always see it on offer in loads of places and I have never had to pay more than £4.25 for it.
Although it isn’t as expensive as some of the premium brands that doesn’t mean that Bulldog have skimped on the ingredients and it contains 5 different essential oils in it as well as millet seeds and oak apple tannins which combined are supposed to give you younger looking skin in just four weeks.
I love the fact that this is a fuss free product as I think all good men’s products should be. You literally just rub a little of this into your skin after washing and that’s it. It has a really nice consistency and absorbs into my skin really quickly and it doesn’t feel heavy or leave my skin looking shiny or greasy. It just makes my skin comfortable feeling and looking healthy with no dry patches. I have really sensitive skin and some products can make me blotchy and red but this doesn’t irritate my skin and I have had no adverse reactions with using it.
I've never used Moisturiser but sometimes there's a little voice in your ear that tells you to do something and there's only so many times you can ignore your girlfriend before having dry skin becomes a dangerous addition to your life. So she bought me this, and insisted that I put it on daily! I didn't think that this process would last very long but I bit the bullet. How wrong I was!
The squeeze pack makes it easy to not end up with too much cream to rub in, while the scent of the thing is perfect. I was worried about it being too chemical and smell like bleach and instead is pleasant but not overpowering. Not having to use copious amounts to see results also means that the product lasts for a decent amount of time.
So in short....it works, it smells nice and has long durability.
I like it but please don't tell the Mrs....she's so smug when she's right!
Having used moisturiser for years, many different types including eco friendly/natural I found One Planet mens moisturiser on sale at Asda. This was by far the best moisturiser I had ever used. Unfortunately this is no longer available so after a lot of searching gave Bulldog a go. I have bought both Sensitive and Original. Both a poor in my opinion. Skin felt tight within 20 mins no matter how much I applied and skin look dull and matt like. Admittedly I do have very dry skin but even so I would rate this as one of the poorest I have ever used. One good point was it's scent.
OK I will start by saying I am by no means a "metro sexual" male or overly in touch with my feminine side but I do like to feel nice and I partner said that my face was suffering from "uneven skin tone and some flaky bits." Now to me this means very little but I took her word for it and then she sprang this moisturiser on me and demanded that I use it; she tried to appease my manliness by pointing out how manly the name was - bulldog!
The moisturiser doesn't smell strongly in my opinion so I figured "what the hell" and I gave it a try. I have to say that it has changed my facial regime as I suffer quite badly with shaving rash. Not anymore as I found that if I use it after I shave, it means that the rash is just too moisturised into submission to cause me to much pain.
The look of the tube is not too intrusive as to cause men like myself to feel self-conscious about it. All that is on the plain white tube is the bulldog logo and a few lines of info. On the back of the tube is the directions for use which is pretty much self-explanatory and a list of ingredients and some symbols for the vegetarian approved, all natural ingredients and one for 8 essential oils.
All in all I really like this product and would recommend it to others as it is well worth the price and it does the job very well. You can pick up the 100ml tube for around the £5 mark which is not going to break the bank.
So you get home and your girlfriends bought you some moisturiser.. says it might help stop my skin from drying out from being around cement ust and wind and cold and or sun all day so i say i'll give it a try..
not knowing really what to expect from a moisturiser my only real experience previous was after sun type moisturisers, i wasn't sure what to expect.. so i picked it up the tube itself has a nice matt type finish. read the front and back. Bull Dog; I liked it. The fact it was called original made it sound like it was well established, that loads of men use moisturiser, what was i waiting for..
After washing I applied some, i was suffering the constant barrage of cement dust to face so my cheeks were quite dry, i remember it stinging like freshly shaven skin does when applying aftershave but was assured this was normal and when it died down my skin felt... well... hydrated.
Bullog leaves your skin feeliing supple and soft and i've been using it ever since, and bought some more of the products, really does help particulary when outdoors through winter.
Don't know why i waited so long.
Whilst scouring the aisles of the local Boots I stumbled upon the label of this skincare range for me. I think it was mainly the label that did it for me, and perhaps the name, Bulldog. Despite the emergence of a 'metrosexual' or self conscious kind of modern man I am a little apprehensive about moisturising some that a few years ago would have a man laughed out of the shop. But Bulldog made me feel a little more at ease buying and using it. Their motto on the back reads: 'MAN'S BEST FRIEND Just because the Bulldog's a wrinkly old beast it doesn't mean that you have to be. Use our moisturiser daily to rehydrate your skin'. Sounds blokeish enough for me. Perhaps on to the actual properties of the product.
When I first used it the first thing I noticed, strangely enough was the smell. The all natural ingredients gave an oddly medical yet aromatic scent which was not unpleasant and I have grown to love.
The texture of the moisturiser is again of merit. Whilst some moisturiser tend to be a bit, 'watery', Bulldog errs more toward the solid end of the spectrum which I prefer as it makes it easier to apply and does not run off the fingers.
Another of its advantages is that it does not leave the skin looking greasy, which is something I was worried about when using moisturiser. But it looks well... just like healthy skin afterward.
I have been using Bulldog for about a week now and I suppose the main question you want to ask is does it work? Men and women alike have shouted the praises of moisturiser for it properties of retaining healthy moisturised skin. After shaving and generally I tended to have dry skin but I am happy to say that Bulldog has left my skin never feeling dry and so it keeps it promise there. As for retaining healthy young skin perhaps reducing ageing effects? I think perhaps we'll have to wait a few years for the answer of that one. I'm going to keep using it anyway.
