The gender camps have blurred when it comes to make up. I know guys who wear tons of the stuff and women who barely touch it. Parts of society have become less interested in labeling each other which has been a long time coming. You define yourself as gay? That’s so 90’s! The steps we’ve made in how we accept each other has opened up doors, particularly for men, when it comes to style and cosmetics. I like brands such as Grown Alchemist and Aesop because they offer gender neutral products that look great in any bathroom or wash bag. High five for brands like these because I find the whole grrrrrr just for MEN thing a bit stupid.

As I’m using retinoid products it’s essential I use an SPF everyday and I’ve noticed my skin looking paler than usual. I’m into pale skin but I’m starting to look a bit ghostly. To combat this I’ve been on the lookout for a BB cream or a tinted moisturiser in the hope it will even out my completion and add some colour whilst looking completely natural. I asked one of the experts at Niche-Beauty & Niche-Men for some guidance and they sent me a sample of Grown Alchemist Tinted Hydra-Repair Day Cream. I was taken a back when I saw the colour as it looks very dark but the description says it’s suitable for all skin tones. 1-2 pumps on top of my moisturiser/SPF gives my skin the perfect amount of colour without me looking like I’m wearing any makeup which is exactly what I was aiming for.
