Tried & Tested - Gentleman’s Polish

review gentleman's polish foundation men's the chic geekPoxrucker & Co. was founded by international makeup artist, Alicia Poxrucker, who found she was encountering more and more questions from her male clients about how they can improve the appearance of their skin and benefit from the power of skincare and grooming products. 

Finding a lack of products specifically geared towards men, even with her reach as a makeup artist, with almost two decades’ experience, Alicia decided the only way to keep her clients truly happy was to create her own premium range.

So, after extensive research and development, Gentleman’s Polish was born: a lightly tinted, mineral-based makeup with a smooth, sheer finish designed especially for men’s skin.

The multi-tasking formula helps reduce the dreaded man-shine and contains light diffusing pigments that help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s perfect for the gentleman who wants a pick-me-up after a late night or a long winter, before a big date or job interview.

Gentleman’s Polish is oil and paraben free and hypoallergenic, so it’s suitable for all skin types, and it contains SPF 20+ for sun protection.

TheChicGeek says, “Sounding a bit like something you should be spreading on toast, this is the first men’s specific foundation I’ve encountered. I’ve tried BB and CC creams before, all which have a slight tint to the product to hide blemishes and even out the skin, but none has felt as light and as natural as this. 

This is you on your very best day. I don’t think I’d apply this everyday, but as the blurb says, this would be great for the morning-after-the-night-before, when trying to look less like death or possibly a date or job interview. There’s an SPF 20 in here, somewhere, even though it didn’t mention this on the sample I was sent. Whatever you do make sure you get the correct skin colour, I went for ‘light’. If in doubt go for a lighter shade.

My feedback would be that the branding and packaging doesn't do this justice. It needs a more serious approach. I like the name, it just needs better branding and nicer packaging for the £35 price tag."
