There is nothing better than any of us taking care of and looking after ourselves, and grooming ourselves to make us feel good is right up the top there, including men.

ABOUT THE MACHRIE MENS WASH BAG
As an aromatherapist, I was very impressed with Arrans choice of oils used in the product range which are as follows:-

Labdanum
Myrrh
Clary Sage
Patchouli
Rockrose

Rock Salt

The blend of oils are fantastic. Very well thought out and put together and make way for that masculine aroma and not too over powering. The aromas are very pleasant. Accompanied by the rock salt, these products will have you feeling fresh, clean and crisp whether you use them in the morning, daytime or evening.

They have an essence of spa feeling to them too as they are very luxurious.

KEY POINTS – (Taken from the Arran Website)
Cleansing formulation
Contains pro-vitamin B5
Promotes enhanced skin condition
Ozonic fragrance
N.B. The Ambergris Note in this product is created using a blend of natural and nature identical elements to create the scent of Ambergris.

THE WASH BAG
This is a stunning grey colour with a carry handle. The zip compartment has a double zip, one each side at the top of the bag and are both pulled opened and closed with a handle. The zips and handle are made extremely well as they are very strong and sturdy.

There is a zipped compartment on one side of the bag outside and inside, there is a non zipped compartment.

Once opened, under the top of the bag once un-zipped, there is a small pocket and above that is a strap with velcro. With plastic behind the small pocket, this is ideal for placing the hand of a razor into the plastic section and sealing it with the velcro strap.

BATH AND SHOWER GEL – 300ml
The consistency of the gel is lovely, most certainly not watery. It is quite thick and you honestly need just a small amount. As the old saying going, ‘a little really does go a long way’.

The aroma of this will leave your bathroom smelling delicious too.

SHAVING GEL – 100ml

Whilst designed as a mens wash bag, I tried this to shave my legs as well as my husband trying it to shave his stubble. WOW, we were impressed, the razor glided and was left with silky smooth skin. We have never felt so relaxed when shaving, the aromas again, are just devine and we both really did feel like we were in a spa.

I love the fact that they use tea tree and peppermint oils. I know that the tea tree is used as an anti-bacterial product, so it makes sense to use this in a shaving gel. The peppermint has the lovely aroma of the spa (I keep mentioning this but it is very true). It is used to help cool the skin down after shaving and the aloe vera and pro-vitamin B5 helps to nourish and moisturise.

As with most shaving gels we have used, we always find it better to shave after a bath or shower whilst the skin is still warm. You can of course, shave whilst in the shower and we personally would not shave in the bath but there is nothing stopping you doing that.

As with the bath and shower gel, you only need to use a small amount.

AFTERSHAVE BALM – 100ml
This is just divine and as with the shaving gel, this also contains aloe vera. Another ingredient to this balm is the Vitamin E which you will notice instantly, will hydrate, smooth, nourish and condition.

Just apply a small amount into the palm of your hands, gently spread the balm so it evenly covers the area that has been shaved and gently massage the balm into the skin.

There is no stickiness or residue and using your hands to apply the balm will also leave your hands feeling clean, fresh and smelling gorgeous.

It contains limonene which is a natural product found in the peel of citrus fruits as well as some other plants. This ingredient has calming properties, therefore, making it an ideal product to use straight after shaving.

SOAP – 100ml
OMG! Upon opening this, I could smell the gorgeous and stimulating aroma of citrus, so, I had to double check on the ingredients and sure enough, it is mandarin. Mandarin has great uplifting properties to help awaken and stimulate you. It also contains clary sage, some of the benefits of this amazing oil can help in reducing stress, anxiety and helps with calmness.

HOW LONG DO THE PRODUCTS LAST ONCE OPENED?
With the exception of the After Shave Balm which is 6 months, the other products it is recommended that these be used within 12 months. Personally, it will not last that long LOL. They are lovely products and if left opened and unused, they will, like all products, will go off.

PRICE AND WHERE TO BUY
The price is £45.00 with FREE UK Delivery. What makes this even more appealing is the fact that if you sign up, you get an additional 20% discount. That makes it just £36.00.

It does say for adults only but no age, so I would say suitable from 18 years upwards.
