Beauty revolution for U.K. men perhaps

So can you men on the Forum imagine yourselves using makeup? It is something that seems to come and go over the years and I remember as far back as the 1960s. when the so called "Mods" started to use makeup. Granted the story the link refers to is about men in South Korea but who knows how things will turn out here in the U.K.

I use Lypsyl regularly...does that count?

Personally I have changed from traditional aftershave to aftershave balm as my original stuff irritated my skin too much. I notice my son uses skin conditioner for the same reason. I remember someone buying my father some aftershave many years ago. You can just imagine what he made of such things. But things do change sometimes very slowly but who can tell what men will be using in the future. Lipstick and eyeshadow perhaps.

I calculated how much I'd need to spend to become an awesomely handsome hunk, unfortunately it turned out to be rather more than the gross national product of a medium sized African nation, so I just said sod it and turned the mirror to face the wall.

Been using a moisturizing cream for ages. When in London I often come across young men with eye liner on. Seems the fashion nowadays.

I trim my beard from time to time, only because I am not going for the ZZ Top look.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I look in the mirror and don't see a wrinkle.

My eyesight's terrible.

Vaseline Intensive Care - Cocoa Butter Lotion for my body.

Vaseline Petroleum Jelly - For my lips in the winter.

Ultra Sheen Hair Oil - For my Hair

Degree (Sure to the UK) for Men Deodorant - Keeps me armpits smelling fresh all day.

That's my beauty regimen.
