Hello all, I hope you had a great Christmas! Mine consisted of far too much wine and loads of screaming children finishing it off with too much chocolate, but I suppose that’s what Christmas is all about!
Anyways today I would like to talk about Reactiv Body care.
A range of male grooming products and a first in the UK specifically designed for the athletic man who loves his sports.
Now…. I am not a massive gym goer, yes I do like to look after myself, but I do really struggle these days to find time to go to the gym, but I would not count these products out, I found them useful.
Please remember all my reviews are as honest as can be.
So my experience with the reactive body care range, I must say that with this brand I have 3 favourite things! And they are:
• The packaging is a lot different, I love the way the tops turns and the product comes out, it’s a lot different from your average packaging.
• I love the fact that Reactiv also support the charity Right to play, which helps children across Latin America, Asia and Africa helping transform the life’s of children through sport which I think is a really nice thing to do.
• Also on the product range my favourite had to be the face nourishment booster gel.
So let’s get this started.
Face Nourishment moisturising gel
Packed full of natural and botanical ingredients, the moisturising gel also features a powerful antibacterial function as well as being anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory perfect for refreshing the skin, I found this most useful after shaving, my skin is extra sensitive after shaving, and honestly sometimes I actually look like I have been strangled! But this moisturising gel is extra handy for after shaves, it really did reduce the redness.
Using this product normally on my face I did find a slight struggle with, but I would say that if you do suffer with winter dry skin or just dry skin on your face in general, this is a definite must have, but with my face It did tend to throw it back out after a while and I ended up looking a tiny bit greasy.
I must say with all the products, where its gel based, it really does absorb into the skin really quick, which I did really love!
Face Nourishment Booster gel
Now this product is a must have into anyone’s collections of creams, I really love the way this product reacted with my skin.
So basically with my new job that I’ve got I have been working long hours and its rather stressy and all the Christmas parties going on etc.
So I’d had a rather long day in the office and I looked so so tired… grey and dull and was in no mood to be attending my partners work Christmas party
I had to go and thought I would give this a try.
And quite literally my face had lifted… All the colour was back in my face and I did not look tired one bit! Usually with these type of creams they don’t really work very well… but this one is excellent and definitely a must have for everyone!
Face nourishment zero breakout hydrating gel
Featuring natural and botanical ingredients, including sunflower oil which is mild on the skin, taiga root for increasing stress resistance and endurance, and rape seed ferment which is anti-bacterial, preventing the growth of the bacteria which is responsible for acne. The Zero-breakout Hydrating Gel also features White Willow extract (Salicylic Acid) which actively prevents breakouts, remaining in the skin and hair follicles even after washing to clear and prevent breakouts. These key ingredients results in the perfect blend of high quality natural ingredients.
This product is also very good for after shaving and I have also been using this as a normal moisturiser, which is very good.
As it comes into the winter season I tend to have a small breakout of spots, but this year I decided to go for a skin analysis, and basically everything is fine apart from the bacteria levels that was under my skin at the time and apparently this is due to a moisturiser that I was using or a facial wash I was using, that was not being affective on my skin.
So I switched my moisturiser to this zero breakout hydrating gel, and since then the spots that have been appearing on my face are a lot less.
I did also change my face wash so I think that helped a bit also.
But I do really put it down to the hydrating gel, due to the fact that it’s anti-bacterial.
Overall, I would use Reactiv again, the price of the products are extremely cheap on the website, and considering the quality I would definitely say they are under-priced.
And the Booster gel, I really do rate this highly in my books!
