Men's Grooming by Bulldog


You will remember from a previous post that I use men’s shaving creams because I have never been able to tolerate the ones marketed towards women. Aside from the obvious nasty ingredients even the “sensitive” ones bring me out in a rash. Despite this I admit I have not tried many natural shaving creams. I am ashamed to admit I have been using Original Source Men's Shaving Gel for a few years. It is the only one I can find that doesn't irritate my skin. It's vegan but it is full of horrid ingredients. I can not think of any natural alternatives that are sold on the high street and online ordering is not always ideal due to steep postage charges. 

Whilst looking for a Christmas present for my Boyfriend I stumbled upon Bulldog, I was not aware that there was a natural men’s range available on the high street -Our products never contain parabens, sodium laureth sulfate, artificial colours, synthetic fragrances, or ingredients from animal sources. I purchase the Sensitive Shave Cream and gave it a try on my legs. 

So what did I think? I know this product was not intended for women but I like it. I have not experienced any dryness or rash or burning sensation when I apply moisturiser. Since it does not contain SLS the cream does not foam. On wet skin it transforms to a milky consistency which is a little bit messy but on the plus side does not clog up the shaver blade. 

If you are looking to convert your man to natural skin care then the Bulldog range is affordable and includes a variety of grooming products. Bulldog’s website lists several stockists including Boots, Tesco, Sainsbury and Waitrose. I found some of the range at my local Boots and Tesco but neither stocked the shaving cream so I ended up purchasing from FeelUnique.com (£4.50 for 175ml tube). Boots currently have Christmas gift boxes.

If anyone has a natural shaving cream recommendation I would love to hear about it. Leave a comment below :)

  1. My boyfriend uses this thanks to me! Haven't thought about stealing it off him though I think I might actually! :-) I've wanted him to do me a review of it for my blog for ages so I might have to step up the nagging!! Thanks for the tip...
