Victor: A Breath Of Fresh Air For Men’s Products
When it comes to the “beauty” industry, men are often left behind. For women, there are aisles and aisles of products and the options are pretty much endless.
When it comes to men’s grooming, the options are much more limited and the products are rarely focused on quality. While I get to have a quality shampoo, body wash and conditioner, my boyfriend is subject to some sort of strange 3-in-1 product with ridiculous packaging and a product that leaves much to be desired.
This is why I was super excited to hear about Walker Johnson's Victor line, which is a skincare regime that is designed and marketed specifically for men. While I’m not a man, obviously, I do know skincare products and can tell the difference between something that is legit or just for gimmicks (I’m looking at you, 3-in-1 products).
Here are a few reasons why I really enjoyed testing out their High-Performance Cleansing Gel.
1. The Packaging Is Perfect
The packaging is one of the things that I loved most about the Victor cleanser. My first impression when seeing the box and product was that it would look super sleek sitting out on your bathroom counter and it does not necessarily scream “this is only for men”.
It is a gorgeous dark grey which is masculine, but not cheesily so. The bottle itself also has a really great design and a quality pump to get product out. I wish more women’s products looked like this.
2. It's Unscented
Hallelujah! Someone has finally created a men’s product without an overbearing “man” smell. While I actually like the scent of men’s products when used subtly, most men’s products have an overbearing scent and when the products are layered it gets to be WAY too much. It gives me horrible flashbacks of high school when guys drenched in Axe body spray were all the rage. If you’re a man with sensitive skin or you’re with someone who is sensitive to scents, this product is for you!
3. Solid Ingredients & Performance
So, the packaging is lovely and the lack of scent has me jumping for joy, but does the product work? In short, yes! In comparison to a few of my cleansers, I feel it leaves my skin feeling just as clean and pretty soft. It includes ingredients such as Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E and Enzogenol, which comes from the bark of a tree native to New Zealand and has anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in antioxidants.
Overall, if you’re a man looking for a high-quality men’s product that works or if you’re looking to get a man in your life a great gift, I would recommend this product.
