Tried & Tested Aguulp Gut Test

Review tried tested aguulp gut test healthAguulp is a new health and wellness brand offering liquid supplements to improve gut, brain, immune health and recovery after a hangover. They have also developed an at-home gut health test. Everything is new to the market.

Aguulp is created by a team of scientists, is clinically developed and trialled, and includes co-founder and musician Stephen Manderson aka Professor Green, who spent a lifetime battling gut and mental health problems, which led to him creating Aguulp.

The Gut Test is an at-home to lab gut health test. It measures short-chain fatty acids – a more precise indicator of gut health than DNA-based tests. You send your sample to Aguulp’s lab and receive a comprehensive health report with advice on how to improve your gut health.

Left - Aguulp - Gut Test - £80

TheChicGeek says, “Firstly, this was very fast, I received my Gut Test results back within the same week. The results are from a mixture of a questionnaire and a stool sample posted to their lab. It’s really simple to collect and the instructions were simple and straightforward. The questionnaire asks you about your diet and habits etc.

Your gut score is how successful your gut is at producing key biomarkers, called short-chain fatty acids, based on your current gut microbial diversity and abundance, genetics, sex, age, diet and lifestyle. Fortunately, diet is the main factor shaping our gut microbial communities. I was 6.5/10. Over 8 is ‘Ideal’, under 4 is ‘Low’.

I had a few further questions about my test which Aguulp kindly answered:

CG : How individual is the test?

A: The same laboratory extraction and analysis is carried out for everyone, but the results and dietary and lifestyle recommendations are personalised because each of our gut microbiome’s are unique. Gut testing is a snapshot in time, so we have made the test as powerful as possible, whilst remaining affordable with rapid results, this means you can retest yourself periodically to see if the changes you have made work for you.

CG: My result was ‘Borderline’, is this something to be worried about?

A: Borderline or ‘Average’ is not cause for concern, but you do have room for improvement. To put this in to perspective the UK average is 5/10 and the healthy average or ideal score is 8/10 so with your score of 6.5/10 you are half way in between. You have an increased risk of developing, or developing further, gut-related health issues. If you already have gut-related health issues, you have found the solution: by improving your gut health you will improve the underlying issue and remove or lessen your discomfort in time. For your information we have revised our reports and now Borderline is categorised as Average as to lessen people’s concerns.

CG: What percentage of people are Borderline?

A: Approximately 50% of people are borderline, 30% low and 20% ideal, so 80% of people have plenty of room for improvement to improve their gut health and reduce their risk of developing gut related issues.

CG: If I can do one thing to help, what is that?

A: Eat more prebiotic fibre and/or consider a prebiotic supplement such as aguulp for gut. Approximately 90% of people in the UK do not eat the required 30g of fibre per day, which is a major contributory factor in the rise in modern illnesses in western culture, such as digestive inflammation leading to IBS, Crohn’s, asthma and allergies, mental health leading to stress, anxiety and depression and other risks leading to type 2 diabetes, obesity and a weaker immune system. Food sources include whole grains (oats, bulgur wheat, brown rice, quinoa, whole-grain bread, whole-grain pasta), fruits (apples with skin, pears with skin, bananas, strawberries), vegetables (carrots, beetroots, broccoli), legumes (kidney beans, lentils, peanuts) and nuts and seeds (chia seeds, almonds).

CG: I eat a lot of sugar, what does this do to me and why should I cut it out?

A: There are many reasons and healthy benefits as to why you should limit your sugar intake from reducing blood sugar spikes, reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, cancer, depression and heart disease, the list is long. From a gut microbiome perspective, regular intake of refined carbohydrates or sugar feeds the pathogenic opportunistic or ‘bad’ bacteria and reduces the number and diversity of probiotic or ‘good’ bacteria. Again, this is not good news from a gut health perspective, which is a central hub interconnected to the other organs of the body and so has knock on effects.

CG: I was ‘Borderline’ on coffee, but I said in the survey I didn’t drink coffee?

A: If you did drink coffee in moderation, this has been shown to actually help to improve the bacterial diversity in your gut and contributes to a healthy microbiota, therefore your score was Borderline as there is potential room for improvement. However, excess consumption will increase caffeine levels, which may affect other aspects such as restful sleep or de-stressing. Additionally, if you have digestive issues such as IBS, Leaky Gut Syndrome or Crohn’s Disease, it is recommended to avoid coffee. For your information we have revised our reports and now the section on coffee has been removed as to concentrate people’s attention to areas which are more important and can make a bigger difference to gut health.

CG: Can consumers ask questions about their test results?

A: Of course, we are trying to break to taboo with poo and fully encourage any and all questions. We have designed the customer journey so that you are not forced to speak to anyone about your stools or digestive health if you don’t want to. We have also carefully designed the technical content on the website and report so that the information is nice and easy to understand so that you can ‘digest’ the information yourself, you do not need a medical degree to understand or a doctor to interpret it for you.

CG: Is there any information on your supplement products and tests before and after using them?

A: Yes we carried out a clinical trial, the summary in on the website here

"It’s good to see Aguulp are standing behind their product because they offer a package of two tests - one before and one after - with a combination of their ‘Brain’ and ‘Gut’ supplements in-between. They say the 'health shots' use liposomal technology to protect nutrients from being destroyed as they’re making their way through the body, delivering 98% nutrient absorption, compared to 20% from some traditional pill-form vitamins."

Takeaway - Everything is about ‘gut health’ at the moment, and I am a firm believer - *gulps apple cider vinegar*. You get out what you put in. It also feels central to everything in our bodies. This test is affordable yet expensive enough to be scientific and offers a nice breakdown with different elements. To be cynical, there’s always going to be room for improvement, especially from a brand that wants to sell you months' worth of supplements.

I was low on fuel for bad bacteria, and I know I eat too much sugar. (I’m trying dark chocolate to control my chocolate addiction while trying to cut down the sugar). I was ‘Borderline’ on coffee, but I said in the questionnaire that I didn’t drink coffee, but they answered that above. I also need to fast more and avoid food or drink (water is ok) for at least 12 hours a day.

I'm yet to try their supplements but these results certainly make me curious. Pass me the oats!"

Tried & Tested JustWears Men’s Underwear

Review tried tested justwears underwear men'sJustWears is a new brand of eco-friendly men's underwear. Dubbed ‘a palace for your phallus’, JustWears boast a unique, ergonomic pouch design. They keep your meat and two veg separate and are proven to improve sperm count and were seen recently on BBC Two’s Dragons’ Den where they received two offers.

Made from ‘MicroModal Air’ fabric -  from sustainable Austrian Beech trees produced in a non-toxic and renewable process - they 50% more absorbent and breathable than cotton.

The remaining wood left over from the process of making them is recycled to supply energy back to the JustWears factory in China, making them CO2 neutral and biodegradable.

JustWears Boxer Briefs come in two different designs: Active - with Pouch - the perfect athletic cut with JustWears’ signature pouch, and Pro - without Pouch - the ideal daily wear.

TheChicGeek says, “I wanted to try the ‘Active’ style with pouch because this is what makes JustWears' underwear different. I’ve always liked micro modal, as a fabric choice, particularly in T-shirts, because it is easy care and works great with stretch.

These are extremely comfortable and feel supportive. You put your cock in the front pouch and the fly opens from the bottom part of this section. Unlike most flies,Review tried tested justwears underwear men's which are often ignored because they are awkward to access.

You forget you’re wearing them, which is always the sign of a good pair of underwear, and the separation actually stops you from needing to adjust yourself. There’s no anxiety! The eco credentials are a bonus.

Apart from the black colour way, I’m not crazy about the other colour choices, so they could do something slightly more contemporary or sexier with the colours or designs going forward.”

Tried & Tested JOS Grooming Original Beard Serum

tried tested JOS grooming beard serumHairstylist Jos Gibson has nearly two decades’ of experience concepting, designing and teaching for fashion brands, runway shows and editorial. His career started at legendary haircare brand Vidal Sassoon in 90s Manchester, and by the 2000s, Jos had become a leader in mens’ grooming working with brands such as YMC, Sunspel, Fred Perry Japan and A.P.C.

Whilst working behind the scenes on editorials for menswear titles such as GQStyle and Fantastic Man, Jos noted the lack of skincare and beard products that worked well for men on set. He began to experiment with new ways of grooming and caring for the skin, hair and beard that became the precursors to his own range of products.

High- quality plant-based solutions are combined with a fragrance that evokes the Japanese concept of Shinrin-yoku or Forest bathing. The JOS Original Beard Serum uses a blend of wood oils, frankincense, cedar and Japanese hinoki cypress, paired with green ora of vetiver and thyme. These specially blended precious oils contain plant phytoncides which together create a unique anti-stress fragrance which is said to not only heals our mind and improves our immunity but connects us to the natural world.

Left - JOS - Original Beard Serum - 30ml - £16

TheChicGeek says, “I always say the easier something is to use, the more you’ll use, and this being in a roll-on format feels ingenious. While a simple idea, it feels faster and more portable than previous beard serums. You simply apply when the beard or facial hair is wet.

The fragrance is a traditional woody scent, but in the green glass you really do buy into his whole Japanese forest concept. It’s well priced, and you even get manly joss sticks using the same wood and plant oils thrown into your purchase at the moment. What’s not to love?”

Tried & Tested Vitruvian Man Organic Grooming

tried tested review vitruvian man organic groomingInspired by Roman architect Vitruvius’ philosophy, the Vitruvian Man brand and products are said to embody three central themes - functionality, strength and elegance. Their uniquely clean and green formulas are vegan, cruelty-free and dermatologically tested. They are formulated with scientifically proven actives that are ethically and sustainably sourced. Their mission is to be honest, to inspire and to implement solutions to aid mental health and wellness.

Men’s skin is as sensitive to natural stressors as female’s skin, building a healthy foundation for the skin should be at the heart of any skincare regime it says.

TheChicGeek says, “I think they had me at ‘Ginger Juice’! The most famous Vitruvian Man was Leonardo da Vinci’s, who beautifully illustrated that a man’s arm span equalled his height.

Aiming to square a man’s grooming regime is the, new to me, Vitruvian Man. The 2in1 low-foaming gel cleanser and toner contains an anti-bacterial ginger juice formulation which thoroughly removes dirt and oil without drying your skin and maintain your skin’s natural tonal balance and is infused with nutgrass root juice’s anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation properties for an overall detoxed and refined appearance.

The ‘Resurrection Cream’ contains SPF 20 and is therefore less loose and more clay-like than the ‘All Day Hydrator’. One pump is loads from both the ‘All Day Hydrator’ and ‘Supreme Eye Cream’, you could probably do with half the amount and they do leave the skin feeling slightly tacky.

All the products smell great, particularly the face wash, with ingredients including resurrection plant (desert plant), snow mushroom, ginger root and nutgrass juice.

This is a quality range of 4 products. It feels researched, cared for and thought about. I like any day cream with a decent SPF and the rest of the products fit together with Vitruvian logic. It also feels fairly priced. Thumbs up from me." *arms outstretched*!

tried tested review katerina steventon calming cleanser no 1This is Dr Steventon’s third product and the No.’1’, her first cleanser, in her ‘Signature Routine’. The other products are ‘4’ and ‘9’.

A new cleansing hybrid formula designed for deep cleansing without dehydration, it promotes softness and suppleness and soothes the skin. A unique combination of modified plant oils (coconut, evening primrose), gentle surfactants, hydrating glycerin and calming aloe vera leaf extract.

Left - Dr Katerina Steventon - ‘1’ Calming Cleanser 50ml - £35

TheChicGeek says, “The first time you use this, do it in front of a mirror because it is so gentle you’d be hard pushed to believe anything was actually being applied without the geranium fragrance. The formula turns white on contact with water, and it is super soft, almost as soft as water.

Use the spatula, provided, to apply a pea sized of the light green gel which turns to a milky cleanser. This offers a refreshing cleanse without stripping the skin of all of its oils and is a pleasure to use. It feels gentle while giving you the after feeling of being super clean. I’m a big fan of geranium so I couldn’t think of a better fragrance.

Dr Steventon, as a facialist, is a big advocate of massaging the face and taking time, if only seconds, to give you and your face some TLC."

Recommended Directions - AM/PM. Wash your face with lukewarm water. Massage a small amount  of Calming Cleanser ‘1' lightly into your skin in a circular motion. Rinse off gently. Avoid direct contact with eyes.

Tried & Tested Beyl Made For Men Skincare

tried tested review Beyl Selfridges grooming eye cream moisturiser cleansing gel

Founded by management consultant Pieter-Jan Beyls, who wanted a skincare range that delivered for his active and varied lifestyle - extremes of temperatures, humidity and pollution from the daily commute, to air conditioned offices and humid gyms, BEYL's formulations auto-adapt to hot and humid, cold or dry skin conditions and protect against city pollution, thus preventing premature ageing, dull skin tone and promoting healthier looking skin.

Above - BEYL - Purify & Refresh Cleansing Gel 150ml - £35, Firm & Revitalise Eye Cream 15ml - £65, Clima-adaptive Anti-pollution Moisturiser 50ml - £85

BEYL is tailored to work on the three different levels of the skin: the surface, at barrier level and deep into the dermis at cellular level.

Working with a team of experienced scientists over 3 years, following multiple user trials and clinical tests, a simple yet effective, scientifically proven, three-product system was created: cleansing gel, eye cream and moisturiser.

TheChicGeek says, “BEYL, as a new brand, has done the right thing by keeping it simple. Too many brands launch with too many products. Launching with three standard, and useful, products means you get completely involved with the brand and quickly.

This is really good; a fusion of naturally derived actives – power botanicals, microalgae, glycoproteins, and nutrients work at different levels and I saw a noticeable positive difference in my skin.

The result is an uncomplicated, yet thorough and effective three product routine that works with each man’s unique skin and adapts to the changing environments that we face on a daily basis leaving a balanced, energised and healthy looking skin.

This is premium priced, so here’s the science bit:

On the Skin surface - Encapsulated Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, works to increase the skin’s antioxidative capacity against free radicals, thus protecting the skin as well as improving skin hydration.
At the microbiome level (epidermis) - A prebiotic microalgae actively restores the homeostasis of the skin by protecting it from inner stress signals, cortisol and adrenaline, restoring its natural circadian rhythm & balance. Broad spectrum pre and probiotic properties maintain a balanced and diversified microbiome.

At the cellular level (dermis) - A glycoprotein promotes keratinocyte growth and fibroblast adhesion for skin regeneration and rejuvenation. It additionally helps the skin retain water and gives a cryoprotective effect due to its ability to modify the morphology of ice crystals.

The only negative, the cleansing gel could be dispensed slightly smaller because you don’t need a lot and at £35 you’ll want to enjoy and savour every drop. My skin looked visibly healthier. I’m completely sold."

Takeaway - Premium, but worth it.

tried tested review King C Gillette shaving products groomingShaving Goliath, Gillette’s, new brand, King C. Gillette, "brings a century’s worth of expertise to life and promises to be a one-stop-shop for all men with facial hair.” 

Bearing the name of Gillette’s founder, King C. Gillette, the man who invented the double safety razor, it embraces nearly 120 years’ of heritage, innovation and grooming experience and, in a first for the brand, includes a range of specific beard care products.

The full range is made up of eight grooming and facial haircare products for men including a Double Edge Safety Razor and blade refills, Neck Razor, Shave and Edging Razor, Transparent Shave Gel, Beard Trimmer, Beard & Face Wash, Soft Beard Balm and Beard Oil.

Left - King C. Gillette - Beard & Face Wash - £10, Transparent Shave Gel - £7, Soft Beard Balm £10

TheChicGeek says, “When consumers think of the Gillette brand, it really should be as the Levi’s of grooming. The originally inventor of the double-edged safety razor, King Camp Gillette, is one of America’s biggest business success stories - Gillette sold $6.22 billion of men’s razors and blades and $1.28 billion of women’s razors and blades worldwide in 2018, according to Euromonitor data - and, along with Levis Strauss, provided products to the American working man.

tried tested review King C Gillette shaving products grooming

Therefore, it’s surprising that few men would be able to tell you much about the man or whether the brand was even named after an individua

So, Gillette is going back to its 1901 roots “Est. Boston 1901” with this new “King C. Gillette” range of razors and grooming products.

Interestingly, this range is more focussed on facial hair than pure shaving.

Some of it is a simple rebrand. Gillette is part of the giant consumer group, Procter & Gamble, who also own Braun, and the provider of the beard trimmer here. The other razors - Neck Razor, Shave and Edging Razor - feature Gillette’s Fusion heads and don’t really offer anything new other than I’ve never seen a monikered ‘Neck Razor’ before?!

The hero product here is the return of the safety razor. While Gillette invented this in 1901 they actually stopped making these 1989 and it offers a really economical way to wet shave. If you want to know more about safety razors and how they work, I wrote this for The Independent last year - here

As for the grooming products, the Beard & Face Wash is a whopping 350ml, so you could do your whole body with this. It has a refreshing menthol sensation, but no individual distinctive smell. It’s light and easy to wash out. The Transparent Shave Gel is probably an already existing Gillette product repackaged and as such you could just buy that and save money. The Soft Beard Balm doesn’t look or feel premium. It looks like a product you’ll find at a cheaper price but it’s more than adequate when on.

tried tested review King C Gillette shaving products groomingI would have tried to make King the expert in shaving and taken the premium route a bit higher by highlighting more of the ingredients etc. It still feels anonymous, like the other Gillette products. I would have linked it in with Gillette Labs, Gillette’s pioneering heated razor, read more here, and played on the fact that Gillette has always invented and pioneered things.

The ‘Beard Kits’ idea is good on their website, where you buy a collection of products and razors or trimmers according to your style or needs, as the range is broad taking in Victorian shaving through to hipster beard maintenance.

Clearly, the King isn’t dead. How about a spin-off rainbow coloured Pride range called ‘Camp’?!”

Takeaway - The King C. Gillette is premium compared to Gillette’s regular prices and I like the concept and branding of bringing the founder back. Maybe they should have put more of him on the packaging to hammer this home?

tried tested review five dot botanics eye serum face serumFive Dot Botanics only use 5 ingredients in any product they make, focusing on high-quality, plant-based ingredients. Everything is vegan certified and palm oil free. 

Founded by partners Zaffrin and Brian O'Sullivan, the London-based company only launched in the middle of 2019 and hopes to capitalise on the desire for ‘clean beauty’.

Five Dot Botanics launches with 5 products: Facial serum, Restorative Mask, Face Mist, Face Oil and Eye Serum.


Left - Five Dot Botanics - Green Coffee + Cacay Nourishing Facial Serum, £38, Full Bright – Horse Chestnut + Caffeine Renewal Eye Serum, £30

TheChicGeek says, “I like the simplicity behind this. The majority of people are blinded by ingredient lists, me included. Who really has the time to analyse and Google everything? Trust is very important. This concept instils trust.

I tried two of the products: the facial serum and the eye serum. The ‘Green Coffee + Cacay Nourishing Facial Serum’ has a very light scent and aims to tackle inflammation, reduce wrinkles and give intensive nourishment. Cold-pressed green coffee beans are said to deliver three times more antioxidants than green tea, calming puffy and congested skin. Amazonian cacay nut oil contains high levels of vitamins E, F and A which revitalise and soften the skin, reducing fine lines, while safflower oil stimulates skin regeneration, clearing blemishes and reducing scars. This has a good consistency for an oily serum. Many brands say 2-3 drops and it’s never enough to fully move around the face. This does that, no problem. It feels nourishing, not too greasy and quickly absorbs.

The ‘Horse Chestnut + Caffeine Renewal Eye Serum’ comes in a metal rollerball and has been designed to reduce dark eye circles and bags. Active horse chestnut extract provides anti-inflammatory benefits and absorbs UV rays. It might be easier to roll this onto the palm of you hand and pat the delicate eye area rather than using direct. 

I really like the branding here and the coated labelling, it looks classy. Five ingredients is great, but does this not paint themselves into a creative and chemical corner? Is five enough for some products? And why only five? I look forward to trying more products from these guys though."

Review 
Emporio Armani Stronger with you freeze tried testedComposed by Julie Massé (MANE), Stronger With You Freeze is the second in the Emporio Armani Stronger With You fragrance series. A citrus woody fougeré, it opens with fresh notes of lime, ginger, and mandarin essence, while an apple accord adds a juicy note. At its heart, aromatic lavender flower, sage and geranium bourbon are combined with spicy cardamom. The notes of glazed chestnut, ambery woods, gaiac and Madagascar vanilla bourbon are on the base.

TheChicGeek says, “I’m not really sure why this is called ‘Freeze’. (The bottles are frosted?). It would have been cooler to call it ‘Frieze’ and pretend it was a post-modern art riff on all those generic juicy apple fragrances. Sadly not.

Tried & Tested Lustre Solo

Review 
Lustre solo acne treatment tried testedThe ‘Lustre Solo’ is a new wireless acne treatment product. It uses advanced blue light technology in a mobile device, allowing “acne sufferers to treat their skin on the go”. 

The solo works by killing bacteria under the skin. The spot causing bacteria, P. acnes produce a normally harmless chemical called Porphyrin. When safe natural visible blue light at 415 nm is shone onto the skin the Porphyrins become excited – this active porphyrin has been clinically proven to destroy the bacteria.

When Porphyrins become excited they attach to the spot causing bacteria and begin to destroy it. Acne begins to clear and continued blue light use can help reduce P. acnes growth and stop new spots forming.

Left - Lustre Solo - £79

TheChicGeek says, “They are selling this as a treatment on the go, but when it’s on your face it looks as though a computer mouse has been attached to it. Not sure you’d want many other people to see this, but you’re certainly not handicapped by it.

You attach the simple sticky strips which also sticks the Lustre Solo to your face. There are enough strips for 30 treatments, then they are £16 for 60 new strips.

I wasn’t sure whether you left it in one place for the daily 20 minute treatment or you were supposed to move it around the problem areas. This wasn’t explained.

I moved it around three main areas of my face over the course of 2 weeks. I targeted the forehead, and both cheeks, where I have the most breakouts. It was simple to use and pain-free, easy to turn on and then turned off itself after the 20 minutes.

I didn’t notice any noticeable differences. They do say 2 weeks is a minimum course, so it could require a longer time. After 30 days, you need to start buying new strips.

I know my acne breakouts are related to food intolerances and allergies and I’m still trying to workout which ones are the biggest triggers.”
