I’m sure you all know that the week just gone has seen the Australian Open tennis, as well as Australia Day. In order to jump on this particular bandwagon, I’m reviewing two products developed by Australian swimmer Michael Klim’s ‘Milk’ range.
I’m ALSO celebrating both Australia Day and my new blog design by offering you a chance to win these awesome products for yourselves, or anyone else who can use them. Read through this post and you can enter at the bottom.
I was given two products to try from the range – the Moisturising Shave Milk and the Scrub and Cleanse wipes. Firstly, let’s take a look at the shave milk:
A slightly odd product, its thinner than a normal shave cream, but a little goes a long way, lathering up well and providing excellent protection and a close shave. The minty element helped to cool and soothe, but wasn’t overpowering, being tempered by other fragrances.
This is a really good choice for anyone with sensitive skin or who is prone to razor burn. I have been using this for a few weeks now, and will happily continue with it even though I’m done reviewing it. This stuff feels really nourishing to the skin, and contains no sulphates or parabens (that I can see on the ingredient list), which is always a plus point in my book.
Secondly, there are the scrub and cleanse wipes. (Or to use the correct name, SCRUB + CLEANSE WIPES). These are a really cool idea, and could almost have been made for me! The wipes have two distinct sides, one with micro-beads to scrub and exfoliate, the other with a more gentle cleansing action. I tend to avoid aggressive exfoliation due to my blemish prone skin, but find it helps a lot when shaving my neck, so having a wipe that I can flip over depending on the area is ideal. I’ve not used these as often as the shave milk, but the wipes definitely have their place, and I have found myself reaching for them more and more as a pre-shave, particularly as the exfoliating knobbly bits help to lift the hairs on my neck prior to shaving.
I would definitely recommend both products, and may well be popping into Boots to pick up the other products in the range (a body wash, face wash and SPF15 moisturiser are available from Boots online, store contents may vary). They are not the cheapest products in the world, but I think they represent pretty good value. The Shave milk is £11.95 for 150ml and lasts well, and the wipes are £9.99 for a pack of 25.
The Whole Milk by Michael Klim range is available in Boots, so get down there and have a look!
