Male Approved? Phyto Professional Matte Texturizing Paste

It’s not often that my husband and I share beauty products. But Phyto Professional Matte Texturizing Paste is one such case.  This product is intended to give you a tousled “morning-after” look, by adding texture and shine. It’s got acacia collagen and beeswax so it’s flexible to work with and isn’t drying.

For me, I worked a small drop of this into my locks after my morning routine of drying and velcro rollers. I found it gave a little texture and enhanced the look I get from the rollers. For the man of the house,  he used this after air drying his hair. It give him a natural look and enough control to calm down his cowlicks. It’s a pretty large bottle considering the amount you actually need to use so I expect we’ll have this in our bathroom for quite awhile.

Does anyone else swap products with their man? Would be interested to hear about it. In another of my recent attempts, I used Clinique All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage on my husband and he accused me of trying to poke his eye out. It doesn’t always work out!

Have you seen the commercials for the new Axe Twist line? I love their commercials, they are always very clever and this one was intriguing. Axe Twist is the newest fragrance from Axe, a fragrance that changes over time to keep us girls interested. Luckily Axe approached the Beauty Bloggerati and we were able to experience the Twist for ourselves.

Axe worked with fragrance designer Ann Gottlieb (the nose behind fragrances included Obsession, Eternity, Daisy for Marc Jacobs, Covet for Sarah Jessica Parker and many more) to create this new scent. Maybe that’s why I was instantly reminded of an expensive cologne and a boy who wore it that I crushed very, very hard on. Oh how I loved the way that he smelled.

Twist starts out very fresh and clean with citrus notes as it opens. It is very bright and young in the beginning but as the notes of cedar and sandalwood also in the fragrance start emerging, this is toned down and the woody notes warms things up nicely. The result is sexy and masculine, I definitely wouldn’t mind my gentleman caller rocking some Twist.

Here’s where you can try Axe Twist. We are giving away 15 sets of Axe Twist for the boy/man in your life. Each set includes a body spray, deodorant stick and antiperspirant stick. To enter just leave a comment on this post from now until Monday, April 19th at midnight PST and the lucky 15 winners will be chosen at random the following day. Good luck!
