I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of +Rehab London’s products from their men’s grooming line, and after using them for a few weeks I decided to write a review so I can share with you my experience and thoughts.
For those of you who might never heard of +Rehab London, they’re a British brand founded by Lisa Hilton that offers a range of skincare products for men, created using mostly natural ingredients, so you don’t have to worry about putting stuff on your face that you don’t even know how to pronounce. Another thing that’s very cool about them is that they’re trying to keep it as simple as possible (you know I love simplicity!), not offering thousands of products that might end up confusing you more than they help.
Before I start my individual review of each product, I’d like to take a moment to discuss the packaging and overall image of the line, which I think are really manly and cool. They describe them as to have a “rock and roll vibe”, so even if you’re not the kind of guy who likes to take care of your skin (I feel you, those things can be really annoying, but you gotta do what you gotta do) you don’t have to worry about using products that look like they were created for your girlfriend.
Moving on, here are my thoughts on every product I had the chance to try:
1) SCRUB UP DAILY DETOX:
A basic facial scrub to help you remove dirt, dead cells and oil from your face. It has volcanic sands and other exotic ingredients that help exfoliate the skin. What I liked the most is that you can really feel your face being cleaned up thoroughly.
You might need to use just a little too much product for my taste and the smell is a bit weird (though definitely not unpleasant and better than putting something that has too much perfume in it), but the way your skin feels after using this is very pleasant.
2) COLD TURKEY SHAVING GEL:
When I first used this, I was actually expecting the gel to turn into foam at some point, which never happened. For those of you who are used to these kind of shaving gels and foams it might feel a bit weird to shave having just a thin layer of gel on your face, but you don’t have to worry because it works without any problems (and you can even see where you’re shaving because the thing is transparent, talk about clever!). It has a minty smell and leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed.
3) NO SHINE MOISTURIZER:
They recommend that you use this moisturizer after exfoliating your face with the daily scrub up to to revitalize and hydrate it. For those of us who have skin that tends to get a bit oily, this is the product you need to get to avoid that ugly shine we hate so much. Just keep in mind that the effect will not last for the entire day, so you might need to reapply this cream after 5 or 6 hours.
4) CALM BALM:
If your skin is super sensitive and you always end up with that burning sensation on your face after you’ve finished shaving, forget about those alcohol based products that end up making things worse, because this thing is the answer. It has an hydrating and soothing effect that will leave your face feeling brand new. It also has a fresh and clean, kind of minty smell (that plays really well with the rest of the products in the line) that you will probably enjoy.
+Rehab London products can be easily found in a variety of countries, so a quick Google search might direct you to the right place. If you feel like you’ve neglected your skin care routine for too long and it’s time to start taking care of you a bit more, these products are the right thing to start. Forget about complicated and overly smelly stuff and try this grooming line for yourself, you might get a pleasant surprise.
Until next time,
