L’Oreal Studio Line 6 vs Fudge Urban Matte Wax 8 : Review

IMG_6503 (1)

So I am trying a few new things this year with regards to blogging, and Vlogging, and this is one of the many new things.

I use products and on a regular basis, one that I use daily is hair wax so I thought why not blog about it and share my experience.

I am not Mr Knowledgeable when it comes to things like this, so for me its trail and error. I would like to try more products and see what they are like, but right now it cost and playing safe till I have some money to play with.

So this review will be for two products, one that I have used for a while and one that I recently tried and the reason why I decided to try it.

Urban Fudge (Strength 8) :

As you have possibly seen from my many Instagram pictures, I like my hair short and spiked up.

I first tried the number 5 strength and thought nah this isn’t for me, but I decided to see if 8 was any better and it was MUCH!!! better for me.

This is really good! if your after a strong hold, one that could even last through the night and next day (if you don’t wash it out at night) then this is for you)

My only problem is the cost of this, this roughly lasts one month for me and its around £7. Yeah thats not much but £7 every month…..

You can get this on offer at SuperDrug which is good as its basically buy one get one free, but its difficult to know when they have it without stopping in store loads.

L’Oreal Studio Line 6

So I mentioned cost was a thing for me, so I decided to try this as it said it was a strong hold and L’Oreal get a good name.

On opening its a very different style of wax to Urban, its more smooth and closer to a gel but not a gel.

I put a little on and put it through my hair, it felt slightly wet the texture but I thought this might start to harden in a few minutes so I left it.

After an hour it still had the same look and feel, it didn’t get any harder so I thought ok lets see how this is over the course of a day.

For me this was just ok, it didn’t have the hold I wanted and over the course of the day. What I did notice is that after washing my hair in the morning, and drying it…it still felt like some wax was in my hair and I use a good shampoo and very warm water.

Overall :

Overall I think I will stick with Urban Fudge, as it seems to have the hold I want.

If your looking for a strong hard hold/texture for your hair go with Fudge, but if you want a soft hold use the L’Oreal.

If you know of any that is similar, and has similar hold and maybe cheaper please do let me know I am always wanting to try new things.

Cornerstone Mens Shaving in the post : Review

In January 2016 I decided that I was paying too much for my grooming gear, so I decided to look about and try a few different products to see if I could cut my cost even just a little.

I tried many different shop brands, and found my shave still wasn’t as good as my original selection which I had been using for many years. After a while I noticed that there were a few companies that do shaving gear for guys, but done via the post which I thought sounded interesting.

I found 3 companies that did this, and started working my way through them.

I won’t mention the ones I didn’t like, but I will mention the reasons.

  • The Blades : I found sometimes one blade would be fine, then the next one I used would slice me, would only work for one shave and be blunt
  • The Handle : The shaving handle wasn’t great, it was meant to be flexible to go round the contours of the face. Due to it being flexible I found it tricky to use or it would break and I would have to order another.
  • The Gel : I have sensitive skin and even the ones that were meant for that, i always found it felt like it burned my skin or made me very red after it.

These are the main reasons, and then I came across Cornerstone.

Just like the other mail ones I tried, Cornerstone is also nicely presented.

My first order I ordered what I needed, as some things I preferred a specific brand :

First Box : 

  • Razor Blade  (optional engraving with your initials free)
  • Blades
  • Shaving Gel
59e0c242-8322-4a92-9cf0-75a36dd5d7be
This was my most recent box, as I didn’t need to order a razor blade again.

For me I can’t fault this service, it arrives when it says and gives a really good shave. The quality of the products are all top, and nothing about this screams cheap.

Why not give it a try for a month? you can cancel when you like plus if you click the link below it gives you £10 off your first order. The joining process is very simple, and only takes a few clicks.

Overall : 

For me this is a great service, I always get a good close shave and I have managed to cut my monthly costs. I have recommend this to a few friends, and just like me they think the same.

** Disclaimer : I have not been asked to promote Cornerstone, and I have not had any freebies from them. This post is all my own thoughts.
