The Bluebeard Revenge Cooling Moisturiser Review
Hey Beauties!
If you’re a long time reader of  Beauty and The Boy you will know that i’m not into giving bad reviews and i dont like saying this is a bad product because who i am to tell you whats bad or not because for all i know what i dont like you might like it so i try not to do that but today i think its kind of needed because there is a brand out there that i really do not agree with. Ive got nothing against The Bluebeard Revenge Cooling Moisturiser itself just the way the brand is marketed.

The Bluebeard Revenge is of course marketed toward “Real Men” as a part of a male grooming range containing everything from shaving creams to face washes and even razors. The products themselves are all high quality but the thing that gets me the most is the almost demeaning marketing against women and anything that is seen as not a “Real Man”. The whole brand’s advertising just seems to be one big massive NO HOMO! as if you’re not a woman and you’re not feminine for using these products if you were to read the blurb on the back of the box you would hopefully understand where i was coming from.

It is just proof that masculinity is intrinsically weak and fragile because they need to butch up their products so men won’t feel emasculated by using them. You can clearly see it’s marketed to straight men with the constant reference to how women will think of you and how it’s not for the “bum fluff brigade”, they bascially resort to sexism and misogyny to make it ok for men to use these products and yes the brand says its “a joke” but this really isn’t a joke it’s not light hearted and it’s not a joke when it’s at the expense of other people.
When you read the above you just think are we really still stuck in the times where men are still so afraid to show any sense of femininity because it’s deemed to be weak or gay.

On to talking about the product itself, its actually a pretty good moisturiser i used it for a few weeks every day and after shaving as well on the days that i did and there is a definite cooling and soothing effect from it.
Its quite a gel type texture its hard to describe its always between a gel and cream texture that i actually quite like because it did sink it pretty fast and left my skin feel sufficiently moisturised thought the day

I really like the fact its has a dispenser that you just press down and it gives you an allocated amount of product which i think is great because sometimes you never really know how much to use and its great in the sense of the product is bascially locked away from bacteria so there is no dipping fingers in pots but i think the only thing i didn’t really enjoy was its really heavily fragranced with a very masculine scent so if you’re someone who has sensitive skin and reacts against fragranced products maybe this isn’t for you

You make a decision for yourself on what you think of this brand but i for one dont support them and wont spend any money on their products not matter how good they are
You can The Bluebeard Revenge Cooling Moisturiser online for Β£9.99 at bluebeards-revenge.co.uk
What is your take on their branding?
Do you agree with the way is marketed?

  • I honestly never though that I would have to talk about this on here.

DON'T USE MAGIC ERASERS TO REMOVE YOUR FAKE TAN!! I saw this "tip" on twitter and researched into a little more and found tweet after tweet from people who had tried this and effectively gave themselves chemical burns! 
Household cleaning products are not meant for the skin they often contain harsh ingredients that will strip away and remove things.

I feel like we need to be really careful on who you listen to when on social media. Just because someone says something it doesn't mean it's a good idea and it certainly doesn't mean that you should try something that dangerous!

  • I know it might be tempting to follow a lot of these create your own DIY skincare routine or DIY face masks but in truth it's easier and more effective to just use properly formulated skincare product.

Trying to be all natural by using food as skin care doesn't work it's not effective and its unsafe I used to believe the whole DIY thing that was until I learned more about skincare and realised it was just better to eat the food instead of putting on my face 🀣

A lot of the ingredients that people say you can use on your face aren't actually safe for the face I once saw a DIY face mask recipe that called for cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and lemon to be mixed together and applied to the face. This recipe will literally burn your face off cinnamon and nutmeg are known irritants so is Lemon which contain a high level of ascorbic acid which will irritate the skin if left on for long periods of time not to mention the fact it's photosensitising so can lead to burns if you step out into the sun.

Not to mention you have no idea of the efficacy you literally have no way of knowing if these products will work or if you're essentially just making mud pies like you did as a child 🀣 you have no idea of the possible reactions either that's why it's just safer and more effective to use actual skincare products because at least you have some sort of idea how they are going to work and if you will get reactions .

  • I see this more and more these days! Celebrities and influencers saying "this cured my skin it's amazing" but then don't talk about the fact that they get monthly facials and use acids and retinol on a daily basis. Yeah I totally believe you it's down to that crappy physical scrub you used once πŸ™„πŸ˜’ What's worse is when I see celebs/influencers promoting supplementation that isn't even proven to work! Supplementation is literally useless unless you are deficient. No your hair won't grow to super lenghts because you a gummy once a day.

Don't get me started on these "fit teas" that are essentially expensive laxatives .

  • I get asked if oily skin should moisturise a lot and I'm here to tell you it's a resounding  YES!

I know the idea of making your skin oily again doesn't sound like fun but hear me out. Stripping your skin won't do you any good our skin needs to contain oil it's essential for skin health.

By taking care of our skin and using a light moisturiser say in a gel form for example will actually help to cut down on the excess oil as your skin won't be trying to protect itself when you strip the oil away.. Its really interesting when you realise a majority of oily skin types are really dehydrated so we need to look for moisturisers that are light in texture and contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin etc. I personally love the @cliniqueuk Hydrating Jelly it's a great serum/moisturiser for oily skin.

  • (Originally uploaded to Live)

Check out the 2nd episode of weekly skincare routine video! i will hopefully be making these every Saturday at 8pm UK time! make sure to keep an eye out.
  • I hate to say it but skincare is not a quick fix you can't use a product 3 times and expect miraculous results.

I see a lot of people using products sporadically and then getting annoyed when they don't see any results even though it's only been about 4 weeks of use.

While hyaluronic acid serums will show results right away you will look plump and hydrated, HA is generally an exception to the rule.

A majority of actives will take time to show results. Take retinol for example you might see a small improvement early on but it can take upto 6 months for you to notice a profound difference.

You need to be consistent in your use just because something doesn't work right away it doesn't mean it's useless, we also have to manage our expectations as well sometimes we hope for too much and are let down by the results. 
Skincare can only do so much so it's important to have realistic expectations.

It might not look like much is happening to start with but you need to keep going you need to push past the idea of "this isn't working" 
Think to yourself why do you think it's not working? Are you using it often enough? Are you using enough product? What are your expectations? .
