Here is a skincare product I’ve been testing for few weeks now. Basically, it is a anti-oxydant hydrator serum from Aesop, an Australian cosmetics brand since 1987. It helps fighting free radicals (at least from the surface of the skin) and limit the effect of time. A very unusual care as it is liquid, and… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
The first time I’ve heard about this brand I thought it was English. No sir! These are cosmetics from home! Their packaging are quite original: a clear tube with a large push-button. Ergonomics were well thought with a comfortable handling. The fluid is slightly tinged with a natural color, ideal for complexion. Careful with the… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
My first Lush test Although Lush offers a special Men’s range (particularly for shaving products), the first product I’ve decided to test is unisex: Brazened Honey. As it’s a fresh mask, you need to keep it in the fridge, for up to a maximum of 3 weeks. It really intrigued me! It really is like… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
This is the latest installment in my adventure “on the trail of Men’s beauty parlours”, with a trip to “Il fait beau” at 51 rue des Archives, in the Marais (they have another salon at 57 rue des Peupliers à Boulogne).

Once upon a time, our fathers had no choice but to visit “mixed” beauty parlours: -Have you come for the bikini wax? Erm, no, it’s for my back. I’m off to the beach next week, and at the moment, to tell you the truth…I’ve got a mohawk down my back! I like to travel light,… Read moreno validationand1 comment for this article.
This is the first time that I’ve used a Braun razor. And I started with what seems to be the best at the moment: the Braun Pulsonic 9595. A top-of-the-range razor that has a top-of-the-range price tag to boot. When I saw it at this price, I thought it must be an mp3 player and… Read moreno validationand1 comment for this article.
It’s time for a few more words on the subject of hair removal. My last article on the subject (in French) was nearly 2 years ago. So today I’m going to explore permanent hair removal, with an interview with Dr. Ludovic Rousseau, a dermatology expert and webmaster of a site devoted to dermatology, and in… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
Philips and Nivea for Men have once again got together to create a new Philishave Cool Skin model: the HS 8020. If you don’t know how it works yet, it’s an electric razor which dispenses shaving gel directly from the middle of its heads. Compared to the older 1st generation models (I’ve got one of… Read moreno validationand1 comment for this article.
