Enjoyed by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Patrick Dempsey and LeBron James EVOLUTIONMAN is one of the latest greats in the world of men's grooming. Made of post consumer grade plastic, all EVOLUTIONMAN products are visually attractive (with masculine discrete black packaging) and eco-conscious while offering those same benefits as the best grooming products.

We haven't been able to try it out yet because, well, we have to finish enjoying TWINLUXE and HIMistry, but EVOLUTIONMAN's review is coming within the next few weeks… matter fact we'll just update this one and let you know when we do. We're sure EVOLUTIONMAN will work quite well though, especially if both Patrick Dempsey AND LeBron James are using it.

I haven't been jogging in weeks now, but the last time I went I distinctively remember wishing I had a proper place to store my keys, well, this is it. SPORT+STORE is a lightweight sleek water bottle meant for both the versatility of style and function. You're able to store things in the bottom of the bottle. And it's not just for jogging, if you're about to play ball (or any other sport) you can put your cash and anything else that would have otherwise been in your pocket in there too. And unless your associates read The Urban Gent (they should) or keep up with this type stuff then they most likely won't even know you have items stashed in the bottom of your water bottle.

Twinluxe is a line of fine grooming products for the modern man. TwinLuxe's 'Shaving Skincare' line consists of multi-functional formulations with a 'TwinLuxe Blend' core of soothing Asian botanicals, such as Hydrolyzed Rice Protein and Centella Asiatica Extract, scientifically-proven to help strengthen skin tone, improve skin smoothness, and promote anti-aging properties.

Reviews below:

Renewing Face Wash & Scrub: The unique formula combines two professional treatments in one "every day product". Gentle microbeads in the softening formula exfoliate the skin, smoothing away roughness and prevent ingrown hair. Unclogged, exfoliated skin is the key to a close shave. The integrated nourishing cleanser unclogs pores, removes dirt and excess oil to promote glowing, fresh skin. The Renewing Face Wash & Scrub is a 2 in 1 essential for everyday use and for pre-shave preparation. For all skin types.

Urban Gent Review:  It has a soothing eucalyptus mint smell and exfoliating beads.The Renewing Face Wash & Scrub is able to take off dead layer of my skin without irritation. I've used several exfoliaters in the past and many irritate my skin, this one does not.

 

Booster Serum: Customize shaving results – this intensive power serum revolutionizes any shaving experience. Pre-shave, apply to create an additional protective barrier between your skin and your blade. Post-shave, soothe any problem spots on your skin to help boost skin's ability to renew and fight irritation. Anytime, apply to problem spots on skin to help revive your complexion.
For all skin types.

Urban Gent Review: Using it pre and/or post shave, the Booster Serum has helped reduce my razor bumps.

 

Soothing Face Balm: This intensive, non-oily balm infuses just-shaved skin with a soothing botanical blend to hydrate and nourish without clogging pores. This long-lasting and gentle moisturizer is a refreshing boost to battle the look of fine lines and inflammation, while restoring healthy, glowing skin. After spritzing Instant Energy Mist onto skin, apply a pea-sized amount for entire face and neck. Repeat if needed. For all skin types – even the most sensitive.

Urban Gent Review: I mainly like the Soothing Face Balm because it's not greasy or oily, and it goes right into the skin. This is hands down one of the best moisturizers I've used because you can use a little and it goes a long way. My only complaint is the mild plastic smell, it's unappealing, but it doesn't linger so I suppose it's okay. But besides that the product works great.

 

Daily Detox Face Wash & Mask: This miracle 2 in 1 daily deep pore cleansing treatment can be used as a bacteria-fighting facial wash, or as a detoxifying, pore cleansing mask to balance skin before shaving. To use as a mask, use a generous amount and leave on face for a few minutes before washing off. This one step multi-tasking formula provides the benefits of a professional deep cleansing treatment, while nourishing and soothing the skin as an essential daily face wash or prior day night time pre-shave preparation.
For all skin types.

Urban Gent Review: The Daily Detox Face Wash & Mask is light (not thick) and has a nice eucalyptus mint smell. It does a good job cleaning my skin without overdrying it. After I finish using it my face definitely feels rejuvenated.

Others to try: Instant Energy Mist, Smooth Shave Creme, Instant Rescue Gel

Advice for Your Skin Type: Oily, Dry, or Combination

Oily skin is the type of skin which produces too much sebum(oil). The face has a greasy appearance , especially after waking up. Your face will become shiny after a few hours after you washed it. It is characterized by large visible pores as well. This type of complexion is prone to acne and skin problems due to the activity of the sebaceous glands.

Skin challenges includes :

  • breakouts
  • uneven skin tone (sun damaged skin)
  • large pores
  • razor bump prone

Combination skin is a mixture between oily skin and dry skin. The skin produces excess sebum(oil) on some parts of the face and doesn't produce enough on others. Usually the oily part is the T-zone, meaning the forehead and the nose area, leaving the cheeks and chin dry. The pores are more visible in the T-zone and less visible on the dry parts of the skin

Skin challenges includes :

  • breakouts
  • dry flakey skin (fine line, wrinkles)
  • uneven skin tone
  • razor bump prone

Dry skin is the type of skin which doesn't produce enough sebum (oil), leaving the skin matte. You will experience tightness especially after washing your face with water. Dry skin is caused by the skin protective barrier’s inability to retain enough natural skin lipids or oils to keep skin moist. A weakened barrier is often hereditary but occurs naturally as we age and can be accelerated with lifestyle

Skin challenges includes :

  • dry flakey skin
  • advanced aging of the skin
  • easily irritated skin
  • uneven skin tones
