Three willing guinea pigs join us in the The Hour studio to test out male grooming products.
Malcolm is an assistant site manager, currently working on a schools project in Inverclyde so his skin is being exposed to the elements at the moment from the water in addition to the daily elements from having a job which requires outside work.
He is pretty much a soap and water guy although does admit to using an aftershave balm but not really full on moisturising, only where he has shaved, and has been known to have a shot of his girlfriends exfoliating face wash before a night out.
He doesn't go to any great lengths apart from in the sun when he has to use a high factor being a redhead. He used No.7 for Men's Gradual Tan, Clarins Men Ab Firming and The Gentry Groom Co's Face Balm. Malcolm found that "the face balm was effective but unfortunately the Ab cream was not a miracle worker for me."
Rugby player Andrew Hill plays blindside or openside flanker for the Glasgow Hawks Rugby Team and is a PE teacher. He doesn’t really use any products but was willing to give them a go for The Hour. Andrew subjected himself to the Osmium For Men Detoxify and Polish Mask, the Rockface Triple Action Face Wash and The Cloud Nine Micro Iron for hair.
After a week of use, his favourite was the rockface facewash. "It's easy to use and practical. I'd definitely use it again."
Rocker Chris McCabe from upcoming Scottish band, The River 68’s tested out the Organic Homme exfoliator, and Clinique's Age Defence Eye Cream.
Chris believes that the products will no doubt come in handy when he is playing T In The Park. Especially after a night of camping.
