The Gillette Ad – The Best A Man Can Be – Or Is It?

Tuesday, 15th January, 2019

Gillette The Best A Man Can Be Ad About Toxic Masculinity Causes Outrage

Gillette has created a new ad, a short film which has been causing some controversy, using their famous tagline, The Best A Man Can Get, and changing it up to The Best A Man Can Be. This is their attempt for ‘men to set a good example for the next generation’, but it has not gone down too well with most. In fact, the YouTube video has over 370k dislikes, in comparison to 100k likes at present.

Many people are outraged by the ad, as for some it seems like they are stereotyping all males, that every man is toxic, using backdrops of what’s been happening in the news in recent times, which has not been very positive for the male gender to put it very lightly.

It goes on to depict and talk about bullying, various negative male stereotypes, sexual harassment, and more.

If you have not seen the video yet, you can see this below.

Wet Shave vs Dry Shave - The Differences And Which Is Better

If you’re having your first shave as an older teenager or you’re thinking about switching up your own grooming regime you may be thinking one thing: Which is better, a dry shave or a wet shave?

Vera Wang For Men Fragrance Review

I’m taking another look back at some of my fragrances, and found this classic, Vera Wang For Men. This one was released in 2004, but I didn’t actually get this until around 2006-07, when it was gaining and gaining in popularity.

As you can see I actually have two bottles, I got a large bottle, then a smaller one as a gift, so I’ve ended up with two. Along with One Million, this is another one of those scents which so many other lads made their signature scent, and if you’ve had a small, you’ll know why.

Tuesday, 6th November, 2018

Tommy Now by Tommy Hilfiger Fragrance Review

Tommy Hilfiger is back with a new fragrance for men, introducing Tommy Now. Celebrating the power of now, as the new generation embraces change with positivity, optimism and refreshing style.

My journey with Tommy Hilfiger fragrances is a good one, as is many of my generation. The original Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger was released in 1994, and as a guy growing up in the late 90’s and 00’s, this was one of my signature scents. It was so easy to wear, it always smelled good and will always live on as one of my classic fragrances I owned.

Tommy Now is a new fragrance for 2018, with it’s own unique style. First I have to talk about the bottle.
