SPEICK Men Care Review [guest post]

September 05, 2016

I don't mention my husband much on the blog because, let's face it, he doesn't fit my niche.

So when I had the opportunity to review some products from German company SPEICK (pronounced "spike" as in my favourite character from seminal 90s teen dramedy, Press Gang), I thought it would be a great way to get him involved.

SPEICK men care shower gel | Almost Posh

SPEICK kindly sent me the Shower Gel from the Speick Men Range and also the Men Active Shower Gel for hair and body for Dale to try. As someone who cycles over 43kms round trip to work, thereby necessitating full shower with hair washing every day, Dale smashes through body wash as well as hair cleansing products, which means more than once I've had to stop him reaching for my expensive blonde shampoo and conditioner.

Over to Dale:

Being a man of few words, I could sum up the performance of SPEICK Men by saying "It smells good and it gets me clean" but this simply wouldn't do for an Almost Posh review post so I'm forced to elaborate.

As far as fragrances go, I usually prefer the citrus-y "sportier" smells over the musky "powdery" smells . . . (hope that makes sense) and SPEICK hits the mark here with its brown lime-y / pine forest-y aromas.

The "Duschgel" (snigger) with the organic sage has a more lemony smell but the pine forest-y tones still dominate - perhaps this is the "high Alpine speick plant" doing its thing?

It's my opinion that shower gels (all brands) do not lather up as they have in years past, possibly as companies cut back on ingredients to save money or to be more environmentally friendly, but the SPEICK Men shower gel lathered up well in my loofa and did the job without using excessive amounts. My Mum always told me the size of a 20 cent coin would do but I find myself using at least twice that with recent products. SPEICK required about 2 x 20 cent piece portions.

Initially the "Hair and Body" combo confused me. Being old school, I always thought the washing task was achieved with shower gel, shampoo and conditioner but as I pondered the concept whilst showering, I came around to the idea. Who wouldn't want to save time?

Being an animal lover, the vegan nature of the products appealed to me. It will be the closest I get to being vegan as while I totally agree with what it stands for, unfortunately I don't have the willpower or commitment to convert properly.

In conclusion, I return to my opening paragraph . . . "It smells good and it gets me clean."

Enough said!

Linking up with the Monday Makeup Madness party.

I (or rather, Dale) was gifted these products for review. Images are mine, opinions are Dale's and authentic because he don't play. For more information, please see my PR and Media policy.
