Product Review: Dreadnought Post Shave Balm

dreadnought-post-shave-balm

I know shaving your face is being marketed as an “experience,” a “moment for yourself.” But out of 100 shaves, how many times do you treat it like a spa day the way hot babes and high-rolling Atlantic City sweathogs do? Exactly.

This review was eight months in the making. I initially reviewed the Post Shave Balm from Dreadnought Shaving over a year ago (Jesus, look how distorted that image is. You’ve come a long way, baby).

At the time, I loved it. So much in fact, that I babied my supply, even cutting it with water when I ran low, the way you fill up your parent’s vodka from the liquor cabinet in high school.

In that eight months, I tried every conceivable aftershave and post shave incarnation, some high-end, though mostly sleazy and easily accessible. And all that time, I was really longing for Dreadnought.

I tried to deny it, but nothing was as good in the interim, or even now. Finally, tail between my legs, I reached back out to Dreadnought.

I was going to publish the actual email, but it was so #WeakSauce, so sappy, it was embarrassing, and it still is. I’d prefer you continue to think of me as a man, not some blathering, near-woman idiot, gassed up on chardonnay and scorn.

What did I like about it? What was so great about it that made me long for its touch? Here are three “quickies”:

1) The slick skin afterglow of a bygone era

2) The texture

3) A dab will fill up your entire face

Product Review: Dreadnought Men’s Moisturizer

Dreadnought-Moisturiser

What exactly is a “Dreadnought”? 1) A person that fears nothing. 2) One that is amongst the largest and most powerful of its kind. Which makes it perfect to tackle your badass face skin that needs to be moisturized into submission.

Dreadnought is on a mission to convince the men of the world to “man up and moisturize!” And the new Dreadnought Cooling Moisturizer is a product featuring the “manliest of ingredients”.

Comprised of hard-assed, exotic compounds like Prickly Pear, Stinging Nettle and Fenugreek, they actually join forces to moisturize and reinvigorate the skin.

The moisturizer itself is a cream, not a gel, and has a full-bodied, thick consistency, yet quickly absorbs into the skin.

Also, you don’t have to douse yourself in the product to completely cover your targeted area. Because it is high-quality, a small dollop will cover the entire surface of your face.

The scent screamed “MAN!” without being invasive or overbearing, and has a certain stateliness to it. It lends itself to a quick spruce up before a night on the prowl and almost serves as an aftershave in that capacity, with a crisp, clean scent.

If you have tough, hard to moisturize (aka “manly”) skin that usually destroys inferior “brand x” products, take the challenge that is Dreadnought.

Oh, and the canister just looks cool sitting on your sink or designated “man grooming” area.
