A NEW FOUND LOVE
Murdock London is a brand that I’ve used and loved for a very long time. I have plenty of favourites when it comes to products I use in my daily routine, but the good thing about brands that you’ve loved a while is that they never fail to surprise you. The lovely guys at ML sent me a few goodies in the post to try out, and after trying them out for a couple of weeks I was so excited to log onto The G Edit and tell you all about them.
For those of you who’ve never heard of Murdock, let me fill you in on a little history. Murdock London first opened their original store in Shoreditch, 2006. Their vision was to completely transform the barber experience, providing a luxurious setting and service that welcomes Men to wind down and relax. They take pride in their award winning, highly skilled stylists delivering the finest of haircuts and on-trend styles. Their barber shops are modern yet traditional, and they take pride in building strong relationships with their customers. A few years later, Murdock decided to launch their own signature products, from shaving cream to fragrance, opening the world of Murdock to the global population. I personally have used Murdock products for around 5 years now, starting off with their facial cleanser and a few of their fragrances (which I still love to this day). I’m in love with their masculine, minimalist packaging as well as the quality feel and impact of their products.
5 years later, take a look at my latest discoveries from this incredible British brand.
First up on the list is the Murdock London Face Scrub. Exfoliating your face is an important part of your grooming routine, removing dead skin and preventing ingrowing hairs from your neck and cheeks. Now the weather is slightly warmer, you’ll tend to have a much larger build up of dirt and grime on your face as your skin naturally sweats throughout the day. I love getting home from work, getting in the bath and giving my face a good exfoliate. I use facial exfoliators around twice a week, gently rubbing the products in circular motions around my face. It lifts the dirt and leaves a fresh canvas to perform the rest of my daily skin ritual.
Barber Tip: “Lifting dead skin and grime away from hair follicles will give a closer, longer-lasting shave.”
FACE & BODY SOAP
Next up is the Murdock London Face & Body Soap . I was quite hesitant when I received this product as I don’t tend to like bar soaps. Usually they’re pretty drying and end up stripping my skin from it’s natural oils, however I was extremely surprised when I first used this one as it pretty much did quite the opposite. Murdock have developed this soap bar to hydrate, nourish and protect your skin using moisturising ingredients such as coconut and almond oil. I’ve left this soap on a dish on the side of my sink and it’s now became my evening cleanser. Really nice before bed, and prepares your skin for the rest of your routine. After using the soap to wash away the dirt from the day, I tend to follow with a toner, moisturiser and treatment cream.
Barber Tip: “Store in on a dry surface between uses to maintain your soap’s structural integrity.”
Speaking of moisturiser, the Murdock London Face Moisturiser has been perfect for my morning skincare routine. I need something super lightweight on a morning, as I hate leaving the house with my face feeling sticky or damp. It’s been designed with men living in the city in mind, blocking pollution and oxidative stress, also contains Hyaluronic Acid for that extra boost of hydration and prevention of moisture loss. It also includes ingredients to encourage collagen renewal for smoother, firmer skin. I’ve only been using the product a couple of weeks so in terms of firmer skin I’m yet to see results, however my skin definitely feels smoother, healthier and blemish free. My skin at the moment is actually the best it’s been in a long time so I’m super happy these products are actually really impacting my skin for the better.
Barber Tip: “Always apply upwards against the skin to effectively uplift and absorb.”
Any gentleman deserves a solid, quality grooming routine. If you’re looking to improve your skin, hair or grooming care, take a look at Murdocks products online or pop into one of their barber shops today.
