I was kindly sent some baldwin nourishing cream in the post, to sample. The box was crushed to pieces when it arrived which was a bit of a shame, but I really dig the bright orange and dark blue combo, it’s striking.
The cream itself smells amazing, it’s smooth and easy to apply, it takes a little while to absorb but bar that the whole process is as putting on any moisturiser is, painless.
I was really excited to try this product, I’m always looking out for new products to try, especially when it comes to male grooming, however this baldwin’s “savvy care for men” hasn’t been that savvy. If anything, it has been the polar opposite. I was expecting my skin to be soft and in great condition after using this bedtime cream, alas spots have been appearing on my face throughout the whole time I’ve been trialling this product.
Don’t get me wrong, my skin looks ‘radiant’, feels softer and all that, but I never signed up to go back to pre-pubescent Tom who is covered in spots – what a shame. I wouldn’t completely shun baldwin from men – or man, they can’t seem to decide on their packaging – but I would approach with care. I’m intrigued to try some of their other products to see if they have the same effect, maybe it’s just my skin?
