Grooming Reviews for 3 product lines: Mangroomer, Menjai, Caswell-Massey 1752

 

MANGROOMER"The Essential Private Body Shaver"

Summary of MANGROOMER Products: Clearly the ManGroomer shavers are for the man who wants to keep his entire body manscaped. Their shavers are very easy to use for either a quick trim -or- for a more precise, time-consuming cut… yanno, when you're aiming for an almost  Adonis, sculpture-like look. ManGroomer also does a pretty good job making their shavers as ergonomic as possible, which is highly appreciated when you're dealing with "sensitive areas". The nose and back clippers are especially designed to help you achieve an easier and more efficient clean shave.

Below are individual reviews with the following information: 1.)Feel/Application 2.) Immediate Results  3.)Short-term/Long-term Results

Nose Clipper: 1.) The round nozzle at the tip of the clipper has the perfect shape for your nostrils – allowing for a painless experience. 2.) You can instantly see a dramatic change 3.) On average you’ll have to use the nose clipper about every week

Full Body & Back Clipper: 1 & 2.) You have to use as directed in order to get a smooth, close painless shave. Meaning, when cutting – you must lead with the guide comb. Once you figure out this little trick you'll be privy to a, dare I say "fun" shaving experience. Seriously, once you start it's sorta hard to stop. There is a con though– it's hard to get a clean shave in the lower pelvic area due to the curvature of the body combined with the lack of flexibility of the clipper head (Full Bod Clipper). The Back Clipper has an extended arm that bends to allow the operator to easily reach all the hard to get spots– this is an obvious plus.  3.) Everyone’s genome and rate of hair growth differs but on average to maintain that initial groomed look you’ll have to shave every 6-10 days. The shaving mechanism on all these clippers are superb! Not sure how often I'll have to replace the head though.

MENAJI"Skincare for the Confident Man"

Summary of MENAJI Products: This bold skincare line embarks on the rough and sensitive terrain of Men’s grooming. Like most lines, Menaji has products for face cleansing and moisturizing, but what makes them novel are their “correct” and “conceal” products formulated especially for men. Now some  may just see those particular products in their line as "makeup" and automatically dismiss it. But let's keep it real– most male celebrities use a little (or a lot) of makeup when they're on television, in movies, and when going to events… so I can totally see the  modern "metrosexual" man having a little "conceal and correct" in his "manbag" amongst all his other products.  This skincare line is certainly aimed at men who also want a quick and easy fix to small imperfections (basically, you don't want to wait for that light spot to go away, you want to conceal it now). Overall the Menaji products that were tested have a great application, leaving your skin re-vitalized and vibrant. However, all skin is not created equal so some products work better depending on the degree of oil your skin retains. But don’t fret! If you have drier skin just add a little oil pre/post to administering the application and you can maximize your results.

Below are individual reviews with the following information: 1.)Feel/Application 2.) Immediate Results  3.)Short-term/Long-term Results

Deep Cleansing Masque: 1.) The initial feeling yields a clean refreshing sensation 2.) This masque doesn’t leave your skin feeling in dire need of moisture, in fact, depending on the degree to which your skin retains oil– you may feel the need to cleanse your face again (Menaji recommends using once to twice a week).

Camo: 1.) It glides onto the skin smoothly leaving no granular trail 2.) I have a  "deep tan"  "copper" or "medium bronze" type skin tone.  And the rule of thumb is to go one shade lighter than your complexion when it comes to concealers. Menaji gave us the bronze camo (aka: male concealer)  which was much more beige or "dark vanilla" than bronze so for me the initial application was too light for my skin tone. In an effort to keep from embarrassment I added some oil to the application and that calmed down the brightness to make it more even to my skin tone. Though I had to tweak it to blend, it actually did a great job minimizing small imperfections 3.) Long-lasting, no need to re-apply.

Eye Gel: 1.) "Emulsion with integrity" – goes on the skin smoothly with a nice cooling effect 2.) Due to the cooling effect under your eye, you'll get an instinct to wipe it off because it feels like water is on your face… But DON’T! lol. 3.) It takes about 30 minutes to feel a slight tightness of skin under the eye which last for a couple hours. By that time you should be awake and the sleeping bags under your eye should disappear.

CASWELL-MASSEY 1752

Summary of Caswell-Massey 1752 Products: Good product line. Definitely better than your average shaving products, but could be seen as average when compared to other previously reviewed shaving lines. However, Caswell’s products have a eucalyptus component which attributes to their strong rejuvenating effects. Their product line has a natural masculine scent that’s very commercial. Every man will like it.

Below are individual reviews with the following information: 1.)Feel/Application 2.) Immediate Results  3.)Short-term/Long-term Results

Essential Pre-Shave Oil: 1.) High quality oil, very soothing and nourishing to the skin. 2.) Helps restore nature oil balance without leaving the skin too oily. 3.) Keeps the skin moisturized for 5-7hours.

Original Shave Cream: 1.) Thick and creamy consistency that coats the skin very well. 2.) Post shaving, the skin feels very supple, tight, and non-irritated 3.) Have to shave every other day – this product does not retard hair growth.

Exfoliating Wash 1.) Feels very light more similar to a face scrub than an all out exfoliate 2.) Immediate rejuvenating sensation! Thanks eucalyptus! 3.) Like most exfoliates you should only use once a week but due to the lightness of this wash you could probably use it 2-3X a week.
