After the success of the previous ‘man talk’ post looking at the best shaving products, I felt it was about time the men got another say on Lots of Love, Me., this time looking at the brand Nip + Man. I don’t hide that I’m a mahoosive fan of its sister brand Nip + Fab so I was really eager to see if the gentlemen’s version lived up to the expectations I already held for the brand… but of course I had to get some eager skincare lovers of the opposite sex in to have a go!
Product: Nip + Man Daily Power Moisturiser
What does it promise? Daily Power Moisturiser is an energising day cream that hydrates + nourishes skin with a combination of actives to moisturise + brighten the complexion.
This power packed formula gives dry, dull skin a wake-up call with brightening + smoothing ingredients to deeply hydrate.
Daily Power Moisturiser is designed with caffeine extract to brighten the skin while grape seed oil tightens + tones and jojoba oil soothes + nourishes.
Steve says: This smells really good, and the added caffeine smells and feels great in the morning. This really helps my dry skin areas and you only need a small amount so it lasts for ages. It’s affordable and always on offer in Boots, so definitely easy on the wallet. At first I thought it might be a bit too “greasy” for my skin – but when it sinks in it feels great and if applied at night, in the morning I can still feel its benefits.
Would you buy again? I have already repurchased this, it’s a great product and will buy again.

This exfoliating + hydrating facial wash cleanses + fights skin dryness with caffeine to energise, papaya to retexture , soothe + moisturise.

Steve says: I was worried that it was going to be a tough facial scrub because I’d read in a magazine that it would be but it wasn’t at all. It wasn’t too rough, and scrubs away the grime of London life. I used to use Bulldog products but they were definitely a lot harsher than these.
Would you buy again? I have already!

What does it promise? Pec Fix is a minimising + sculpting gel with a fast acting formula to help to improve tone, texture + smoothes the appearance of pec contours, Ab Fix is a lightweight, fast acting gel which will help to improve skin tone and texture around the abdominal area and Bicep Fix is a sculpting gel helps define the appearance of the upper arm area + improves tone + texture for extreme body confidence.
Aaron says: I was very sceptical of these products and I still am – I didn’t really see any visible, more defined results but I’m not sure what I was expecting… to suddenly have the toned physique of David Gandy? My skin did feel a lot smoother and firmer but I didn’t see any noticeable definition to these particular areas of my body as a result of the product
Would you buy again? Probably not, but I’d definitely recommend gym bunnies to have a go!
Product: Nip + Man Power Workout Fix
What does it promise? Power Workout Fix is your ultimate workout accessory.
This muscle warming serum is designed for use post-workout to help de-stress the body + soothe tired muscles.
Ever felt fatigued after a workout? This gym bag essential relieves + warms aching muscles while improving the skin’s tone to help treat muscles fast.
Tom says: I really like this product and was worried I wouldn’t be able to enjoy it because I’m not an avid gym user. However after football practice I love to use it on the bottom of my calves and if I’ve had a long day and my lower back is hurting I use it there. It’s a bit like Deep Heat but doesn’t smell horrible and is slightly more tingler but in a nice gentle way, whereas Deep Heat can be a strong, not very nice scent.
Would you buy again? 100%

Tom says: This is a really nice product to use post-shave, it smells really nice and feels nice on the skin. I suffer with bad shaving rashes but this doesn’t aggravate it at all. Really impressed.
Would you buy again? Yes!

Steve says: Really, REALLY like this product. It’s more like a serum than a moisturiser and it smells and feels nice. Was worried about using a product like this in fear of feeling a bit ‘mid-life crisis-esque’ but when applying at night, it feels so light and thin on your face it’s hardly noticeable. My skin felt a lot plumper, fresher and firmer after using it for a couple of weeks.
