On 9 June I attended the KZN launch of the new Rain Men’s Range called “G”, at Alchemy in Ballito. Alchemy is the bar side of the Blackstrap Craft Distillery Company and The Other Room Wine Shop and they are situated at the newly revamped Ballito Lifestyle Centre. Alchemy has an extensive gin cocktail menu which was fitting as 9 June was World Gin Day.
The launch of the new men’s range was before Father’s Day but I waited to write this post after the day as this range is an everyday use range and not only for special occasions. Face it – how many men actually use their Father’s Day gifts? Not every man will use the entire range either so I am going to focus on those products that I know my husband and my son will use.
A dense shaving cream to be used with a shaving brush. Creates a luxurious lather to encourage a close shave, which will leave skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Contains aloe and chamomile.
My son has a shaving brush but I doubt he has ever used it. I would expect my husband and son to use their fingers to apply the shaving cream. This bottle is great as you can cut the bottle open to get all the product out (I do that regularly).
Formulated with Aloe Ferox and Chamomile Extract, with a woody aromatic fragrance. Apply liberally, lather, rinse off with lukewarm water.
My son only uses shower gels while my husband will use a gel if he finds it in the shower. The Rain Shower
Gel smells amazing.
Soap on a Rope
Kalahari Melon & Olive Oil is a 100% pure natural old fashioned handmade soap with a hint of lemongrass on a rope and presented on a stylish cement tray. Wet, lather and wash skin gently. Rinse well.
My husband and I have used this soap before with the 125g bar. It lathers well and it a long lasting soap. I know my husband would enjoy using the larger bar.
Hair and Body Wash
With spearmint and rosemary. Natural and organic ingredients used in this nourishing hair and body wash.
This would definitely be a winner for my son as he would not have to reach for the shampoo bottle. My husband would probably not use it as a shampoo as he has a favourite product. I said it at the launch and I say it again now – I would use this product! It smells so great , so refreshing and so invigorating. Love that the product comes in a glass bottle and I would be able to use the bottle when the product is finished.
Eau de Toilette
The cologne has a woody aromatic scent. With top notes of bergamot and lavender, middle notes of coriander and geranium and base notes of oak moss and musk.
My husband is not really a fan of fragrance but my son has an extensive collection. This is a long lasting fragrance. I accidentally sprayed some on me and it lasted for hours.
With bulbinella, aloe and marula. A light moisturising face cream which absorbs quickly. Ideal for use after showering and/or shaving, day or night.
My husband likes to use a face cream when his face starts to feel a bit dry but he doesn’t use everyday. This bottle looks just like a tube of paint!
