Why on earth from the body shop?
#2
i presume as he wants natural ingrediants but seriously i believe this stuff is very much female based i could however be proven wrong but the whole marketting is targetted at females
#3
they don't exactly have a massive range for men, best bet is to go instore and look, or just order a few items and go from there, but if you go instore you could get some sample pots to try

The Hemp range is suitable for both men and women. Not at all flowery.

There is a aftershave balm which I bought my step dad and he swears by it This one

However if its because you are looking for natural products then I would recomend Lush rather than bodyshop, some of the stuff they put in there products can be harsh.
My OH has sensitive skin and gets all his men products from Lush, lots of masculine showergels, creams, soaps, shampoos etc etc and similar prices to bodshop. It can be a bit daunting if you are a Lush virgin but the staff are great to help you choose products.

I want to start buying from TBS because their products are more ethically sourced than other retailers' products. Although their products cost a little more than non-TBS products, I think it's a fair deal if it means no more animal cruelty because TBS don't test their products on animals. Their About Us webpage says a bit more about it.

I was about to go into one of their stores last week, but it was full of woman so I kept on walking lol. I know they do stuff for men, but they do seem to offer more products for women.

I never knew Lush did ethical products, I'll check them out to.

The issue about body shop is that although they don't test on animals etc they don't put much money back in to the support of animal cruelty. Do check out Lush, 100% don't test on animals and many of the products are vegan as well. Also they put money back in the industry. All the products are made from fresh fruit and vegetables and essential oils.

They usually are packed with men woman and children, my 8yr old son is crazy about the bath bombs. No one will blink a eyelid about a man going in as they have a large male range, also most of the other products are unisex.

Thanks for that. I went to their website and found a video which shows what Lush are all about. It's great video and makes me want to shop there!

You buying your man something he doesn't particularly want won't stop animal cruelty.

I assume you're buying for your child - is this just to impress the other mothers?

buy Molton Brown or L'oreal men expert.

All depends on your skin type. I highly recomened 9-5 cleanser, for both men and woman, but its cream you remove with cotton wool rather than a wash.

Coal face is good if you have more oily skin, I have a male friend who uses this and stops him from being spotty.

However my OH just uses sexy peel soap, and it does the trick perfectly for face and body.

Also try not to use a scrub every day, best to give you skn a break as they can be harsh, for a good lush scrub try angels on bare skin.

I'm buying for myself as I'm a guy (my avatar is a pic of Greta Garbo, which I like to look at, in case that's what made you think I'm female).

I recently read Practical Ethics by Peter Singer and in his book, he argues that "If a being suffers, there can be no moral justification for refusing to take that suffering into consideration." There's no doubt about it, testing products on animals leads to suffering, so I must therefore, take that into consideration before I act and in this case, that means not buying products which are tested on animals.

Yeah they always do samples. I always get a sample before I try a new skin care products as they don't all suit my skin. Also I was talking to a assistant when I was in Leeds about how I had gone off 2 of my fave scented products after trying the perfumes - and she asked if I had used the bath melts yet, I said no, So she went and got one of the self put it in the bag with my other purchases for free, The customer service is second to none.

yes very friendly helpful staff...got loadsa free samples to try before i buy and they never bat an eyelid

Well in that case you might want to see why so many people boycott l'oreal - who own Body Shop.

Apparently, testing cosmetics etc on animals has been banned in the EU since 2004. This makes my search for ethical products a lot easier as I know whatever I buy won't have been tested on animals beforehand - although presumably, L'Oreal did test their products on animals before 2004. So it seems The Body Shop's USP is that it's a fair trade retailer and their products are vegetarian.

I went to Lush earlier and picked up a few free samples. Again, their USP is similar to TBS as they use natural products and are fair trade retailers. They also seem more pro-active with regard to wider environmental and social issues.
