Admiral Male Grooming - A Review

*This is a collaborative post

I've always prided myself on my youthful looks but now I'm in my mid-thirties I've noticed the odd line around my eyes and a spattering of grey hairs. I've been using various grooming products on and off for a few years now but I wish I had started earlier. If I have one piece of advice to men in their early to mid twenties it is to start moisturising NOW!

I was recently asked to try a line of products by Admiral Male Grooming. I've been using them for a few weeks now and I'm really impressed. I got a bundle which included Shampoo & Conditioner, Bodywash, Face Scrub, Moisture Balm and Hair Moulding Paste.

Moisturising Bodywash with Black Quinoa Extract
Starting with the shower regime, this bodywash lathers up really well especially if you have a loofah or shower puff. It has a great smell that is not 'soapy' at all meaning I get a proper grown up musk after showering. It rinses off perfectly as well with no post shower residue left behind which you can sometimes get with shower gels.

Hydrate & Shine Shampoo & Conditioner with Avocado Extract
Not content with having avocado on my toast I can now wash my hair with it too. Working well with the bodywash, the shampoo and conditioner again doesn't have overpowering scent. I normally have a separate shampoo and conditioner as I have really thick and sometimes unmanageable hair and the combined ones usually don't work well for me on the conditioning side but this is good and leaves my hair soft and fluffy.

Detoxifying Face Scrub with Cucumber Extract
This face scrub works great both at cleansing and rejuvenating and even though I don't personally have a wet shave Admiral say this will have a cooling and soothing effect on those who suffer sensitive or irritated skin after shaving. I normally just use a bar of some for my face wash but this face scrub is so much better as the exfoliating effect leaves my face feeling great after washing.

Antioxidant Moisture Balm with Artichoke Extract
This moisture Balm is great for combating the old crows feet around the eyes or wrinkles in the forehead. My face is left feeling hydrated, soft and smooth after applying this balm. As with the face scrub Admiral say this is also great for calming redness in the skin after shaving. This was my favourite of the products and like the bodywash has a really great smell.

Maximum Control Matte Hair Moulding Paste with Basil Extract
I have a love/hate relationship with my hair. I love that it is thick and luxurious but hate this sometimes means it is cannot be tamed when trying to style it out. On an everyday basis I don't use any product in my hair but if I'm having a night out or special occasion I need something with a strong hold. This paste is really strong, applies well and blends into the hair so there is no residue.
All of the products in this range have 'The Admiral Gold Scent' meaning each product compliments the next. The fougère fragrance has aromatic citrus, marine and woody notes leaving you looking and smelling great. I'm also really pleased that the whole range is cruelty-free and made in the UK.
If you would like to try any of these products there are available to buy on Admiral's website and you can get 25% off if you use the discount code RICKEL25 when you check out.

Happy Grooming!

Well. that's all for now.
