L'oreal Men Expert Pure & Matte Charcoal Black Foam and the BF

It's such a funny thing that no matter how hard I try to engage the BF with beauty products for men, he just can't seem to join the bandwagon. He is so against having to put on anything after showering. Really, the BF could live with soap and water alone. I still remember how I "forced" him to wear the L'oreal Men Expert White Activ Sunblock was by way of me applying it on to his face. Thank goodness, he got used to using it by himself.

But one of things that he loved best was when I took home with me the  L'oreal Men Expert Pure and Matte Bright Charcoal Black Foam. He was so intrigued with the grayish formula that came out from the tube.

Of course, I explained to him that the Charcoal in it causes the formula to be grayish and that it will absorb all the impurities of his face, prevent his pores from clogging and reduces oiliness. Since this facial foam has Salicylic Acid as well, it would reduce breakouts caused by blackhead and whiteheads.

By the mention of those things, the BF tried Pure and Matte Charcoal Black Foam immediately. He hates going to derma and whenever his cute face accumulates blackheads and whiteheads, there is no stopping me from taking him. Well, he really have a nice skin to begin with except for the occasional cleansing needed. But now, I hardly have a reason to bring him with me to my facialist. I've seen quite an improvement with his skin texture and really, I can't complain about the scent. It's so musky, I kiss him all over after he gets out of the shower!!

The BF and I @ Ilog Maria Bee Farm, Tagaytay --- isn't he soo handsome? hehe

I love that my guy isn't the type to use a lot of grooming products. But I'm glad he knows the best products to use whenever it strikes his fancy to be all up about facial stuff. He's such a man's man, the BF, and I'm crazy about that in him!

What about your BF/Hubby? Is he like my BF who doesn't use much of the available men's grooming stuff out there? Or is he boardering Ryan Seacrest already? Share your BF stories below!! :)
