Straightforward, simple, to the point. So you could describe my claim to my personal routines and processes in everyday life. The goal is to accomplish something, to create something without spending hours in details and stopping with little things. Once established, a routine must work for me. This applies not only to technical processes such as data backup on my laptop, but also for my care routine in everyday life.
It is important to be able to rely on products that work in both data protection and the proper care of your own skin. Since mid-May, the skin care of the man in the drugstore dm, with the British skin care series BULLDOG, a skin care line, especially for men .
According to their own statement, it scores with its uncomplicated use, natural ingredients and convincing effectiveness. Reason enough for me to take a closer look at BULLDOG, its care series and the integration into my daily routine.
BULLDOG – a care series with a British character
One can not blame it, if one does not think directly at BULLDOG to a care series, but rather to the English Bulldog in form of a dog. At least that was the closer association for me. Nevertheless, a connection between the care series for men and the English Bulldog can be established.
Because the core of the brand BULLDOG is described as straightforward, simple, honest and with an unmistakably British character. Properties that are definitely associated with the English dog breed.
And like the relatively small dog with a short muzzle, the care series can become a companion for life. This has certainly also thought founder Simon Duffy, who in 2005 had the idea for BULLDOG. After searching for skin care products for men who used natural ingredients, they did not find what they were looking for. There were products on the shelves, but none he really liked.
Two years of in-depth product research, design and development, along with friend and co-founder Rhodri Ferrier, were needed until the BULLDOG brand debuted at a leading UK retailer. In 2017, BULLDOG men’s grooming products have a few prices and are available in many countries. Since mid-May also in the drugstore dm in Germany. It is hard to believe that the brand was founded in a small bedroom in West London. But it can sometimes happen that way.
Anyone who chooses a dog breed as the namesake for their own brand, which combines more with animals, than a little marketing. This is confirmed by a look at the website of BULLDOG . Because there you can see directly that all products are certified Cruelty Free International. This means that they do without animal experiments. Furthermore, these are basically free of artificial color and synthetic fragrances. They also contain natural ingredients such as aloe, camelina oil or green tea.
The care range of BULLDOG considered in detail
Now that we have some background knowledge about the BULLDOG brand, I would like to take a closer look at their care series. I will not be able to view all the products due to the size of the offer, but I’ve picked four times for me, which are almost daily with me in action. The products of the beard division I have left completely outside, since I have never worn beard and therefore can not judge fair.
Instead, I focus on the sensitive moisturizer, wash gel, and shaving gel and aftershave balm from BULLDOG, which I have integrated into my daily grooming ritual. And the promise that with BULLDOG no man must look like a wrinkled animal and still be a cool type, you can certainly agree to this post.
Fresh start to the day – Original washing gel from BULLDOG
The sleep still in my eyes I wake every morning in our bath. Before you put your jeans and shirt on, then head off in the direction of the car so that you arrive at the office punctually around seven o’clock, you have to get fit first. And especially to wash the sleep from the face. Did I do that until recently with just a little cold water, now the original wash gel from BULLDOG is used.
The application is relatively simple. Wet the face with water, then apply the wash gel with aloe vera, camelina oil and green tea. By gently massaging the washing gel foams and unfolds its cleansing effect. Then rinse with water and you will discover no trace of sleep in your own face.
Above all, one feels directly a little bit fitter. At least I feel that way. When using it is only necessary to ensure that the washing gel by BULLDOG does not get into the eyes, it should also be used only externally.
Shaving with the Shaving Gel and After Shave Balm by BULLDOG
“If you are not a geography teacher or a communist revolutionary, then you have to shave yourself someday.” – For this statement alone you should use the shaving gel and the aftershave balm by BULLDOG. What certainly speaks for it, is the fact that it feels incredibly good on your own skin and the shave is easy from the hand. Especially when traveling, when it needs to go fast and you do not necessarily want to make your own shaving cream, shaving gel is an option. In all other cases, of course.
The shaving gel contains aloe vera, camelina oil and green tea, which allows an incredibly gentle shave. Applying is relatively easy, moisten your face a little with warm water, apply shaving gel and massage on the skin. The BULLDOG shaving gel starts to foam very easily – now you can shave.
What should not go unmentioned with the shaving gel is its transparency. By making the gel transparent, it allows a view of the whiskers and thus facilitates a particularly precise shaving. This is particularly advantageous for a 3-day beard or beard. Furthermore, shaving gels are richer in their consistency than foam and thus protect the skin even better from the razor blades.
After shaving, I wash my face with cold water before applying After Shave Balm. Before that, I dry my face so that the After Shave Balm can be well absorbed by the skin. A pea-sized “portion” of BULLDOG’s aftershave balm is perfect after shaving to nourish the skin. But watch out, do not press too hard – otherwise too much will come out. I felt like that.
Sensitive moisturizer – in the morning and evening
For me it is indeed so that I return after my morning wash, as well as the shower in the evening again and again into the bedroom. Not to lie down – oh, that would be nice in the morning – but much more to get dressed or prepare for the The Mentalist sessions with my wife in the evening. But if it’s not so wrong, I use the time at least from time to time to apply a little moisturizer.
I have made good experiences with the sensitive moisturizer from BULLDOG. Especially for sensitive skin, this is ideal, because it helps the skin to regenerate. The ingredients of the Sensitive Moisturizer are also responsible for this: baobab oil, oat oil and fireweed.
As with the After Shave Balm, I also take care not to apply too much to the moisturizer. The size of the pea is sufficient, spread evenly over the neck and face and then massage in gently. Feels wonderful and the skin does not stretch so much, but is noticeably relaxed.
My conclusion to the BULLDOG care series for men
Personally, the care series by BULLDOG convinced me. I like the approach of bringing a care series especially for the modern man at the start particularly well. The fact that they rely on natural ingredients such as aloe vera, camelina oil and green tea and are also Cruelty Free International certified, is another plus.
Right after my receipt mentioned claim: “uncomplicated, simple, to the point.” Comes the care series therefore and allows them to integrate seamlessly into their own care routine. It is not absolutely necessary to completely rely on all products from BULLDOG, but especially the moisturizer and the wash gel prove to be a true enrichment in everyday life.
If you are interested in the BULLDOG grooming range, then take a look around the corner at your dm drugstore and test one or two BULLDOG products. Could certainly also be something for your care routine at the start. Oh, vegan, the care products are the way too!
