We don’t think us gals should have all the fun, so our seasonal bellobox gives the guy in your life the chance to trial an awesome selection of the coolest men’s grooming products out there. Because brothers need to learn that sometimes soap just doesn’t cut it.
So what was inside the spring bellobox?
Moosehead Grubby Putty
While we love a guy who pays attention to his hair, let’s all take a moment and think back to THAT guy who went a bit nuts with the gel. Greasy, untouchable hair is never a good look. Less is more, boys, and this fab clay putty not only smells good enough to eat, it gives you that elusive casually tousled, matte look we ladies swoon over.
Black Leopard Anti-Shine Moisturiser
“I’ve got fairly oily skin, so I can’t say I really use moisturiser. This product was great though – my skin felt much less tight, softer, and it didn’t look shiny at all. I like the packaging too. Definitely wouldn’t be too embarrassed to whip this out at the gym.” Ben, 32
Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub
Given that most guys don’t tend to cleanse and tone twice a day, their skin can get just as congested as ours. This hardworking scrub does a great job as sloughing off dead skin cells and helping to clear congested skin. Its microbes work on the skin’s surface, while Beta Hydroxy cleans deep down into those pesky pores.
Grime Boss Heavy Duty Hand Wipes
If you’ve got a fisherman, tradie, or general outdoorsy bloke in your life, here’s a hot tip. Pop a pack of Grime Boss in his car. These super handy wipes look super blokey, and wipe away even the toughest of dirt and grease, while giving the hands a nice little moisturising treat.
Rescue Remedy Polished Man Nail Polish
Yup, your read that right. Before you laugh too hard, let me explain. This long-wearing polish in Rescue Remedy’s famous shade of canary yellow is in support of the Polished Man – a fundraising campaign by YGAP, which aims to end violence against children. Sign up to become a Polished Man and paint one nail from the 1-15 October. Also for your chance to win, upload a picture of your painted nail and #polishedman #bbpolishedman @bellaboxaust For more information on Polished Man and this competition head to polishedman.com/page/bellobox
Burly Fellow Kisser
You’ll be begging your bloke to lay one on you when you get a whiff of this Aussie-made and owned lip balm. Packed with natural and organic ingredients, it comes in a retro style tin, so won’t remind him of lipstick at all. Definitely one to borrow from the boys.
Burly Fellow Stiffy
Those Burly Fellow folk are our kind of jokesters. “This styling product is awesome. I’ve got a bit of an old-school hipster cut at the moment, and it takes a bit of doing. This was easy to use and gave me helmet hair, in a good way. It was really shiny and ‘done’ and didn’t move. The tobacco and wood smell is pretty addictive too.” Mark, 29
Burly Fellow Beard Balm
If your man wouldn’t be caught dead without some serious face fuzz, slip him a tin of this nourishing beard balm. Strong even to tame the wildest foliage, he’ll look more handsome than Hagrid. Phew.
Versace Eros EDT
The guys will have also received a sample of this sexy new scent from Versace. It’s a fresh, oriental-woody blend that will make you see your man in a whole new light.
AHAVA Soothing After-Shave Moisturizer
Enriched with Dead Sea minerals, this moisturiser from cult brand AHAVA is designed for use after shaving, instantly cooling and soothing the skin. Razor burn be gone.
