– Gifted Post –
f you have read my previous post linked here, then you will know all about Stay Fresh Grooming Box that I get sent out every month. It’s now April so a new box is available.
Again the box is a simple and clean box with just the logo in a sticker form which is minimalistic and fresh. This month there are 3 products in the April box.
Altr for men face wash 75ml
Bullet & Bone cooling recovery body wash 250ml
Full sized Milton Lloyd No9 Eau De Toilette 83ml
It’s been a few days since receiving my Stay Fresh Box, I’ve tried out the products so I my review of the products to my best ability. Starting with the Altr for men face wash.
Who Is Alrt?
Alrt is a brand I’ve seen cropping up on my instagram a lot. A brand started by a guy named Alex Doyle. A normal guy, who just like me suffered with acne trouble. A snippet from the Altr website from Alex “A female friend of mine recommended a concealer, and non-irritable moisturiser.
After trying the products I thought they were great, and really helped in overcoming confidence issues, but they weren’t quite right for my skin type, and none of the brands available spoke to me as a 21 year old guy. This was when I decided I wanted to create a fusion skincare brand for men which combined traditional male grooming and cosmetics, and could help other young men to look better, and feel more confident.”
Within the April’s Stay Fresh box is the Altr Hydrate Face Wash. I’ve stated before that I have to be careful what I use on my skin, as I’m prone to very oily skin. That being said using the Altr Face Wash my skin hasn’t been as oily while using this product. It has a very fresh smell and works really well with my other products I use. Reading on the Altr website all their products are designed for men due to these facts, did you know that men’s skin is on average 25% thicker than women’s? This is due to hormone testosterone, leading to skin that contains more collagen, and is tighter in appearance.
Male skin also tends to be rougher and oilier than our female counterpart’s skin too. Men have more active sebaceous glands, which means larger pores, and greater sebum production. Consequently it’s pH is lower and leaves skin more prone to acne, and other impurities.
I really liked this product and would most certainly recommend the product to guys who have trouble with their skin. It left ,my face feeling refreshed, clear and cleansed of oil.
Bullet & Bone Cooling Recovery Body Wash – Who are Bullet & Bone?
Taken from the Bullet & Bone website. “The idea for Bullet & Bone was conceived when our co-Founder, Ian Murphy, noticed that there were no high quality personal care products packed with natural ingredients, specifically designed to enhance sports performance.
As a keen amateur sportsman, Ian noticed that he and his friends were using a number of disparate brands of personal care products while playing sports. For example, Vicks Vaporub to open up airways before a match, Ralgex or Deep Heat to warm up muscles quickly, or beach sun cream for outdoor sports protection, often times, not at all the intended use for the products.
After over 2 years of painstaking product design, development and testing, Bullet & Bone was created, a range of trusted, high quality personal care products, specifically developed to help enhance the performance of sportsmen”
I’m somebody who works out on a regular basis, it was so good to be introduced into a product that helps cool down muscles after working out. This particular product has been refereed to as the “ice bath that athletes have” This product is packed with essential oils and extracts such as peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil and menthol. These essential oils help cool the body and muscles.
After doing a few intense workouts I have used the cooling recovery body wash. While using the product I could smell just how fresh and many of the essential oils within the product. After using it my muscles felt cooled and I felt ready to for the next day to workout once again. Before using this product my muscles would ache the day after, regardless of after workout stretches and cool showers and now using this they’ve stopped aching.
If you’re someone who regularly goes to the gym or works out. This product would be such a good product for you to use. They have a whole range on their website. But this is perfect to get April’s Stay Fresh Box to try it out. You can then see whether it works for you while as well as trying other products.
Milton Lloyd Perfumer’s Choice No9 – Who are Milton Lloyd?
Taken from the Milton-Lloyd website – Milton-Lloyd began in 1975 and has built its reputation by offering luxury fragrances at affordable prices. An excellent fragrance is not created by the expensive bottle it comes in nor by the advertising that promotes it. An outstanding fragrance is created by the essence that is contained inside of the bottle. After all, it will be the perfume you will be wearing so it must be the best thing about the product.
Creating long lasting, luxury fragrance is what we are passionate about. Which is why we find a way to get it to you in the most affordable packaging with very little advertising. The perfume is what we invest in; We buy the finest quality; longest lasting oils, and we put them in at the highest concentration to ensure we repeatedly delight the final consumer.
In my previous post you may have seen that the previous Stay Fresh Box had another product from the Milton Lloyd range. This month the product is an Eau De Toilette that is full sized. No9 Fragrance. When they say they create long lasting fragrance they mean it. I sprayed this on a jacket at the start of the week and by the end of the week I could still smell the spray on there. It’s a very strong and masculine smell. Taken from the Milton-Lloyd website describing the fragrance… Fresh invigorating top notes of apple, bergamot and blackcurrant enhanced with juicy pineapple on a aromatic floral heart of Jasmin and Rose. The rich and elegant base notes of oakmoss, amber and warm vanilla impart sensuality and masculine power.
The fragrance is a real rich and strong smell. It’s something I look for when buying a fragrance as you want to smell nice all day long. With this fragrance you most certainly will smell strong and “masculine”. The price alone on this product is £16 so getting in the Stay Fresh Box is a steal. The whole box is £24 with the other products it would go over the price of the box. I’m really looking forward to finding more fragrances from this company.
Stay Fresh Box
I can’t stress at just how good this box is. I love finding new products and finding new brands everything month with this little box. If you know a someone who struggles to find new products, or know someone that doesn’t use any products but he wants to be introduced into new products everything month. This box has everything they need. Normal price of this box is £24 a month, the overall RRP of the box is over £30. But with the help with my link and code you can bag yourself this box for £19!
Once you’ve clicked the link and added to the basket you add this code. Luke19 to get £5 off your box. Making it £19 for all of those amazing products.
I’m looking forward to the next box to showcase!
