Clinique For Men Aloe Shave Gel

Clinique For Men Aloe Shave Gel Review

I got a Clinique For Men grooming set quite a while back, and since I was running low on my usual shave gel, it was the perfect time to try out the Aloe Shave Gel from the set.

The full bottle which you can buy comes in a 125ml bottle, and since this was part of a pack, it comes in a nice little sample size of 41ml, so around 1/3 of the size of a full bottle.

How does Clinique For Men Shave Gel stack up?

Here’s my thoughts.

The Best Autumn Fragrances For Men That Get Compliments

The Best Men's Fragrances For Autumn 2018

Leaves are falling, it’s starting to get cold, it must be Autumn! But what fragrances should you be wearing this season?

We’ve just left the Summer behind, and now you’ll be thinking about what are the best Autumn fragrances to wear. There’s so many scents which can work for this season, but I’ve picked out those which are specially suited to this time of year.

The colour most associated with Autumn is brown, we think of leaves falling and so woody scents are the perfect choice. We don’t need the heavy hitters of super warming scents more suited to Winter, but something to warm you up nonetheless.

Notes to look out for when choosing a fragrance are:

  • woody
  • masculine
  • musky
  • spicy
  • aromatic
  • floral

Best avoided are the citrus heavy, sweet, aquatic or fresh scents which are better suited to the Spring or Summer.
